To say Cancun hadn’t been amazing would be a complete lie. It was to die for and Santana loved everything about it. She loved that she got to spend it with Puck, that it was beautiful weather, the water was crystal clear, and it was romantic, which wasn’t something Puck and Santana did very often. One of her favorite parts though was sleeping in Puck’s arms with nobody else in the bed. It was almost like the perfect situation. Finn wasn’t kicking them, it wasn’t a smaller bed like in Lima, and they didn’t have to worry about anyone walking in on them.
It was the middle of their second night in Cancun after spending their first full day together and Santana could not seem to get any closer to Puck than she already was. She was fast asleep as she kept an arm draped over his torso to keep her close to him and her legs intertwined with his as her head rested on his shoulder. It was weird how quick things were moving with Puck now that they were dating and she honestly didn’t understand why they didn’t start dating again sooner. They were perfect for each other in every way and there was a part of her that knew she never wanted to let him go this time around.
She hadn’t even fully admitted it to herself that she was head over heels in love with Puck but she was. All the signs were there. Wherever she went she found herself almost always thinking of him, and when she was with him time always seemed to fly and she always wished they could just be with each other and never part. She was out cold as she continued to occasionally pull him closer to her in her sleep, letting out a soft groan as she kept her body cuddled close to him before mumbling softly in her sleep.
“I love you, Puck.”
Puck wasn’t sure how it was possible to love a place as much as he’d loved the time spent in Vegas, but that was exactly what he found himself doing as he spent time with Santana in Cancun. It wasn’t like Las Vegas in many ways at all, and yet just like he didn’t want to leave Vegas, he was sure the same would be said about Cancun, maybe even more so. Curling his arm around Santana and pulling her closer to lay against his chest, Puck sighed a happy and content sigh. He loved hanging out with Finn, and he was glad he’d made the last trip, but he would not miss having his gigantic best friend taking up a large part of the bed. Being able to sleep comfortably with room to breath and move was something he’d missed incredibly, and yet even with the extra room available, Puck still had Santana curled in close to him. He’d never admit to being a cuddler, but he did like the closeness and comfort that it provided. It was something that on most nights, he couldn’t get enough of.
As Puck laid there thinking things like, ‘I can’t believe I’m in Cancun,’ and ‘I can’t wait to fuck Santana in the ocean,’ geography was never his strong suit, but when he heard Santana mumble those four words to him, all his thoughts stopped for a second as he laid there frozen. He’d thought she’d been asleep, and as he waited to hear something else, anything else, he was only greeted with the calming sound of her breathing next to him. When he realized she really was still asleep, he laughed softly to himself. He wasn’t the only one with thoughts like that on his mind, and while he hadn’t been trying to hide how he felt from her, it would be even easier to tell her now knowing how she felt too. Leaning his head up, he softly kissed the top of her head, careful not to wake her up in the process, before laying comfortably back down again. “I love you too, Santana,” he whispered to her, even though he didn’t expect her to hear it. If she hadn’t, he knew she would be very soon.
Santana felt Puck shifting as he laid back on the bed and it only made her pull her body closer to him as she felt herself slowly waking up, which was the last thing she wanted to do right now. Her eyes fluttered open for just a moment to glance at him before closing them again as she stayed cuddled up against him. “Stop moving,” She mumbled softly against his chest as she gently nudged his foot with her own. She stopped moving after getting cuddled up to him again and laid there for a moment as she wondered how long she had been sleeping with Puck just laying there. “Why aren’t you asleep?” She barely managed to get out as she blinked her eyes open a few times to look at him before groaning and closing them again—she definitely wasn’t at her best when she was just waking up.
“Can you not sleep, babe?” She asked him as she did her best to shift her body on top of his to look up at him. If he couldn’t sleep then she would stay up and keep him company. She knew how much it sucked when you were sitting there awake, trying to sleep but failing when everyone else was sleeping and she did not want to leave Puck laying there like that.
