Truth or Dare (Jonathan Byers x Reader)
This is my first attempt at writing a Jonathan x Reader fic soooo enjoy!
In this, you’re Mike’s older sister. Nancy doesn’t exist. Also this one does not follow the Stranger Things plot.
Jonathan Byers was a shy sweetheart, that was for sure. The boy almost never spoke up at school, and he blushed immensely whenever someone accidentally brushed against him in the hallways. Specifically you.
Y/N Wheeler, a girl that Jonathan utterly adored. You were the older sister of Mike Wheeler, one of the friends of Jonathan’s younger brother Will. Whenever Jonathan went to pick up Will from Dungeons and Dragons at the Wheelers and he saw you, he would turn a deep shade of red and immediately leave.
Naturally, you found this very sweet and adorable. You had had your eye on Jonathan for a while now, ever since your friends started pointing out how obvious it is that he likes you. Occasionally you would try to talk to Jonathan in the hallways at school, but as soon as he saw you walking in his direction he would turn away and go somewhere else. And prom was coming up, which got Jonathan terrified that someone else was going to ask you.
One day as Jonathan was going to pick Will up from Dungeons and Dragons at your house, the boys literally dragged him down to the basement. You were there too, arms crossed. Mike and Will insisted on playing truth or dare. Ah, middle schoolers.
“Come on! You have to admit, it’s a fun game,” said Mike insistently.
You rolled your eyes and sighed, smiling. “Jonathan, are you okay with this?”
Jonathan pretty quickly realized you were speaking to him, and looked up to you from where he was staring at the ground. “Oh–uh–yeah. Yeah… it’s fine with me.”
Will grinned. “Told ya he would.”
Jonathan finally had a realization. Shit. Shitshitshitshit. Will wanted to play truth or dare in hopes Jonathan would finally reveal his massive crush on you and ask you to prom. Yes, Will knew. He once found a photo Jonathan had of you standing at your locker unsuspectingly. Well, not like he had a choice now.
You, Jonathan, Mike, Will, Dustin, and Lucas all sat around the table.
“Alright, who’s going first?” you asked.
“I will!” Dustin exclaimed. “Lucas, truth or dare?”
“I dare you to dance with no music for one minute.”
It didn’t sound very funny at the moment, but once Lucas stood up from his seat and started dancing with absolutely no music in silence, it was honestly hilarious. Awkwardly waving his arms and legs in the air as everyone else held back their laughter. For once you actually saw a genuine smile on Jonathan’s face, little crinkles forming around his eyes.
Once it had been a minute, Lucas sat back down. “Alright, that was great,” he said sarcastically. “Now it’s my turn. So, Will, truth or dare?”
“Hmm… if you were a girl for a month, what would you do?”
Will shrugged. “Probably hang out with the girls at school to try and figure out why exactly they hate us.” Mike, Dustin, and Lucas nodded agreeingly.
“That’s actually a pretty good reason,” said Dustin.
“Hey, being a girl isn’t that easy,” you cut in.
“Will, it’s best not to make her angry,” said Mike, aware of how you could get if someone got you mad.
“Anyways, Jonathan, truth or dare?”
“Uh… dare,” Jonathan said, fear evident in his voice.
Will smirked. “I dare you to kiss Y/N.”
Jonathan turned a deep shade of red and turned his head down so he was facing his hands where they were nervously fiddling on his lap. You looked to your left where he was sitting. Poor Jonathan, you couldn’t help but feel bad for him.
“See, I told you guys he loves her!” Will exclaimed in a fangirl-like way. “He’s blushing!”
“He’s always blushing,” said Mike.
Jonathan must have been suuuper embarrassed, especially since you were sitting right next to him.
“Well, come on, Jonny. Kiss her!” said Will.
He obviously wasn’t going to say anything, but you knew how much he wanted to kiss you. So you slipped a finger under his chin and tilt his head up, immediately locking your lips together in a sweet kiss.
All the boys reacted differently. Will was fangirling, Lucas was ‘ewwwing’ in a joking manner, Dustin started clapping and wolf-whistling, and Mike just kinda sat there smiling. When you pulled away from Jonathan, he sat there and looked at you shocked. You, Y/N Wheeler, his dream girl, had just kissed him.
“Are you okay, Jonathan?” you asked him with a laugh.
“You have no idea how long I’ve been wanting to do that,” he responded, breathing heavily.
You grinned. “You’re adorable, you know that?”
“I’m sorry. But you are,” you replied, kissing his cheek, making him smile.
“It took you guys this long to realize you love each other?” Will said in a ‘seriously’ tone.
“Yeah, we’ve been waiting for this to happen for foreverrrr,” Mike said dragging out the end of ‘forever.’
“Oh, shut it, Mike,” you said to your brother.
“Jonathan! This is the part where you ask Y/N to prom,” said Will and Dustin.
“Yeah, man. Do it already!” Lucas said.
You looked at Jonathan, and he looked at you. “Do… you–uh–want to go to prom with me, Y/N?”
You nodded. “Of course I would, Jonathan.”
Please let me know what you thought of it and what I could do better next time!
