She sat in her bed, knees up to her chest as she heard another rumble on thunder. Izzie felt like a child. She was a grown woman and she was still scared of thunder. Thunder won’t cause an earthquake or hurt her while she was inside the house, yet she still got that increasingly uneasy feeling as she heard the next rumble.

She picked up her cell phone. She hated calling him because of this. They have only been dating a month, he shouldn’t be succumbed to her childish fears. Well, just yet.

She was about to put her cell phone down when she heard another loud rumble. Screw it. She opened up her phone and browsed through her contact list until she found his name. She hit the ‘Send’ button and put it up to her ear, hugging her knees closer to her chest.

Three rings later, she hear a reply, “Hello?” He asked tiredly.

“Hi. It’s Izzie. Did I wake you?”

He ran a hand over his tired eyes with a yawn. “No.” He lied. “Is everything okay?” He asked a bit concerned. It was well into the night, and he wasn’t sure why she would call this late.

“Yeah, everything’s fine.” Izzie assured him. “It’s just… This is going to sound ridiculous. I called you because, um…”

“Iz, what’s wrong?” He asked, rubbing a hand over his eyes once again.

She took a deep breath. “The thunder’s kind of… Freaking me out.” That’s the best way she can think to describe how she feels.

“You have a fear of thunder?” He asked, a hint of a smile on his face.

“Sort of.” She hates to admit it. “I know, it’s childish.” She waved her hand a bit, as if she could see him.

“Maybe it is, but I think it’s cute.” Her childish qualities made the feelings he had for her only grow.

She tightened her grip on her cell phone as she heard another loud rumble of thunder. “Seriously?”

He chuckled. “Seriously.”

She bit her bottom lip. “Do you think you could…” She was cut off from a terrifying rumble. “Do you think you could stay on the phone with me? At least until it dies down?” She asked, a bit hesitantly.

“I’ll stay on the phone as long as you want.” He responded, his voice genuine and true that he would stay up and stay on all night if it would make her feel better.

A warm smile spread across her face.

And he did indeed, stay on all night.
