PROMP: you and Chris have been best friends for years, but the jealousy can bring a lot of things out.
PAIRING; Christoffer Schistad x reader
‘’Earth calls y/n’’
Eva’s voice interrupted the stream of your thoughts.
‘’Eva, sorry, I was not listening’’
You apologize a bit embarrassed, you were very distracted. Christoffer Schistad was staring at you from the other side of the room, his eyes fixed on your figure, his lips curved in a smirk, typical of him. You had been his best friend for years by now, but something was in the air in the last period and you were dying to find out what was that.
‘’Too busy talking with your best friend, I don’t know how you two can do this’’
Eva was staring at Chris too, the drink in her hands almost finished and her lipstick on the edge of the glass.
You asked while pushing a boy definitely too drunk away from you. The room was filled with people, the pre-drinks at William’s place were always crowded and loud, and you loved it.
‘’Are you fucking kidding me, y/n? You two speak each other with your eyes, everybody can see it’’
Said Eva, her eyes fixed on you. Before you could answer, someone touched your shoulder.
‘’Plus, William is included in this strange magic’’
Said Vilde, taking part in the conversation, you just shrugged your shoulders but a smile appeared on your face. It was true, you couldn’t deny it: you, Chris and William were a trio, an unbreakable bounding had been connecting the three of you for years, you were simply best friends. You were their age and, when the boys started to invite Eva’s group to the parties, you immediately became friend with them. In that moment, William attracted your attention: he was smiling at you vividly while Noora was dancing with him. You smiled back, knowing what he meant: he was happy to show you that, finally, he managed to make Noora his girlfriend. You couldn’t be more satisfied with that, you were well aware of how much your best friend wanted to be with that amazing girl so you soon started to ship them. You turned your face toward Chris and he was still staring at you, his hair a bit messy and a beer in his left hand; he moved his head in a way to make you understand that he wanted you to go to him. Before you could take a step, someone spilled a cold drink on your leg. You turned around with all the intentions of yelling at that idiot but what you saw made you stop: and handsome boy, probably younger than you, with blue eyes was staring at you and looking not so sorry.
‘’I’m so clumsy, my apologies’’
Said the boy putting a hand on his chest, his voice woke you up from the surprise.
‘’Don’t worry, it’s not a big deal’’
You said with your flirty voice. It was not hard for you, to get what you wanted. Being the boys’ best friend it was quite usual to be with the Penetrators for you, so you just learned all the tricks to be a fuckgirl. Someone in school also used to say that you were a female version of Chris, but, unlike him, you never used to be presumptuous about it.
‘’How can I make amend?’’
Asked the boy, you faked a shy smile but you took his hand and started to walk away from the people.
Chris’ voice made you turn while you were on the stairs; you looked the boy at your left and then you smiled in triumph at your best friend. He inspired and then nodded, he seemed quite disappointed. You were so confused by his reaction that you almost had the temptation to go to him and ask what the hell was going on, but the boy you were with started to walk toward an empty room.
He asked with a mesmerizing smile, you smiled back and he took it as a ‘yes’. William’s room was almost your room because of the great amount of time you had spent in it, watching movies and talking with him and Chris. Chris. His face was all you kept thinking about during all the time that the boy kissed you, your body pushed against the wall and his hands on your ass. He was a good kisser, nothing to say about it, but you were not involved. ‘y/n, what is wrong with you?!’ You yelled at yourself internally while the boy was torturing your neck with bites and kisses.
You couldn’t handle it any longer; the boy stopped kissing you and looked at you in disbelief and confusion.
‘’I’m sorry, I’m not feeling well, to much alcohol’’
You lied, he shook his head.
‘’I thought you were the biggest fuckgirl in town’’
He said, disappointment and irritation in his voice, you almost laughed, you knew how to deal with the assholes; you pushed him back, opened the door and, before leaving the room, you turned toward him with your most polite smile.
‘’My dear, I’m just not interested in fucking you’’
You said, he didn’t say a word while you were coming back to the party. Your eyes were searching for your best friend. The party was almost at the end, the house was quite empty and people were too high or drunk to even talk.
‘’Will, have you seen Chris?’’
You asked to him, your best friend gave a quick look around and then looked at you.
‘’He probably left, he said he was tired’’
He answered, you nodded and hugged him, was time to go for you too.
‘’I can drive you home’’
Offered William, you freed yourself from the embrace and gave him a kiss on his check.
‘’Don’t worry, Jacob said that he will drive me.’’
You reassured him, Jacob was one of the Penetrators boys you were closer with, even if you used to get along with them all. While you were saying goodnight to the girls and Jacob was driving you home you couldn’t stop thinking that Chris seemed so strange that night, you tried to keep him away from your mind but it was practically impossible.
THE NEXT MORNING.
You called your best friend at the end of the school day, he seemed to be in rush.
He answered turning to you, his voice was quite bored.
‘’You left yesterday’’
You said carefully, you knew how complicated was to make Chris talk about his feelings, his problems… making him open up was practically a mission, every time that something was wrong you and William had to give him space and be patient.
‘’I was tired, I still am’’
He said running his hand through his hair, you bit your lower lips, you knew he was lying.
‘’Chris, are you coming?’
William’s voice made him turn left and you saw it: on his neck there was a big purple hickey. In spite of the fact that you had no right to feel jealous, that’s how you felt in that moment. You were constantly informed about the sexual life of the boys, you also used to help them with the girls when they were not that good, you experienced the birth of the Penetrators and you never felt like this. Chris was sleeping around and William either, period, that was the normal condition; but in that moment, you felt like someone else touched something you wanted to call yours. You couldn’t resist and you touched it, retiring your hand a second after that. This contact made him look at you.
‘’Yes, I imagine that you must be very tired’’
You said sarcastically, your voice lower than how you planned it to be; he rolled his eyes, he seemed more sorry than bothered.
‘’Why are you acting so strange? You have always talked to me about the girls you screw as I’ve always told you about the boys I hook up with, why did you lie?’’
You were staying calm, of course you were; it was a bad idea to yell at Chris, you had learned it by seeing him when he was mad at his friends, he was not a tempered person.
‘’I just needed a distraction’’
He said biting his lips, he was holding back.
‘’First of all, you don’t have to give me explanations, the girls you sleep with are none of my business. Second, distraction from what?’’
You asked, your voice suddenly full of rage and your hands gesture matching your words. He seemed to be so in conflict with himself, a thousand of thoughts crossing his mind, then he gave up.
‘’A distraction from you’’
He admitted, his left hand covering his mouth, he looked so tired and sad. You opened your eyes and looked at him in total surprise.
‘’Chris… d-does this mean what I think?’’
You asked hesitating, you wanted to be sure. He nodded and made a step forward, now you were closer.
‘’I’m not good with this shit, you know that, y/n, but I suppose I have feelings for you. Yesterday night, when you arrived you were so stunning I just wanted to kiss you. When I called you I wanted to tell you the truth, I was tired of looking at you from the other side of the room and wanting you without having the possibility to have you. Then you went upstairs with that boy, I just could not handle it. A girl kissed me randomly and I decided to bring her home, but all I could think about was you. I’m sorry, really.’’
It took a moment to you to assimilate all of the new information, then a big smile lighted your face up. You thought you had never saw Chris in that way, but you wanted to kiss him so bad in that moment.
‘’I know, I screwed up our friendship, I..’’
He couldn’t finish his sentence because you were kissing him. You never expected to feel such a rush of adrenaline while kissing Christoffer Schistad, but your heart was beating so fast you were scared he could feel it. Chris was nothing like you imagined: he was calm, his hands were delicate and his touch cautious, like you were something precious. You crossed your hands behind his neck and ran your finger through his hair, your lips opening and letting his tongue in. Suddenly, the kiss became more desperate, more passionate. He moved his hands on your hips, caressing them under your t-shirt, you felt shivering going down your back and attached your body to his, you wanted more.
‘’Okay, I suppose I can leave, then’’
William said from his car, he was laughing. Chris interrupted the kiss and turned his head toward his best friend.
He said, his voice bothered and amused at the same time. He turned and looked at you, you smiled on his lips and waved at William while he was leaving. You caressed his check, your body still close to his.
‘’I wasn’t expecting that’’
He said smirking, you rolled your eyes but you were still smiling at him.
‘’So, Penetrator Chris has a heart’’
You said touching his chest under his hoodie, he smiled and looked at you so intensively that you felt like he was undressing you with his eyes.
‘’Don’t try to ruin my reputation, babe’’
He said giving you a quick kiss on your neck, you closed your eyes and moved your head back to make him continue that.
‘’God, we already are at the part where you call me babe’’
You teased him touching the back of his head; he stopped kissing your neck and looked at you.
‘’y/n, I want you to be my girlfriend. No games with you, no tricks.’’
He said in a serious tone, you almost were surprised to hear this voice, you never saw him like this before.
‘’I feel flattered by the offer, I shall think about it’’
You answered trying to stay serious; he smiled and brushed his lips on yours, his hands were still on your hips.
He asked softly biting your lower lip, the look of triumph in his eyes while you gave up.
‘’Okay Christoffer, you can call me babe from now on, I’m definitely your girlfriend’’
You answered; he smiled vividly and touched your hair. Before he could kiss you again, you stopped him.
‘’Chris, I wanted to tell you, I didn’t sleep with that boy, I couldn’t stop thinking about you yesterday’’
You confessed, your checks going a little red while he looked at you in total relief.
‘’That’s better, I’m the only one allowed to make you feel pleasure’’
He said, his eyes filled with lust. You gave him a smirk and slowly touched his neck.
‘’I can’t wait for that’’
You teased him with your hands running down his chest. He looked at you, his lips barely touching yours and he said.
‘’Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long, but I want to do the things in the proper way’’
He caressed your left check and gently brushed a strand of your hair behind your ear, you looked at him, the curiosity shining all over your face’s expression.
‘’So, what’s your next move?’’
You asked laughing a bit and looking at him in his eyes, he smiled before asking you:
‘’Y/n, will you go on a date with me?’’
You laughed in surprise, your eyes wild open and your stomach already upside-down because of the happiness.
‘’Really? Christoffer Schistad inviting a girl on a proper date?’’
You teased him, there was no meanness in your voice, just sarcasm and pleasurable surprise. He took your hands in his while smiling and intensely looked into your eyes before saying in the most serious tone:
‘’You have no idea of the things I would do for you, y/n y/s’’
Take 250 g of hazelnuts and roast them in the oven until they are brown and chrisp. (This isn’t obligatory but it will definitely enhance the flavour) Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and blend until the oils are released and a paste starts to form. Soak 4 dates in hot water for about 5 min, add the dates to the food processor and keep the water. Mix in 2 tbsp of raw unsweetened cocoa and a dash of unsweetened almond milk and blend. Add a pinch of salt and cinnamon for extra flavour. Pour in some of the water from the dates until you get a smooth delicious consistency of your liking🌿 Enjoy a guilt-free treat ✨
I was in Bow today, so I decided to wander down to Poplar. Here are some of the real life, modern locations of Call the Midwife.
They are, by row:
1) Chrisp Street Market (although I did not see Shelagh with a pram, which was disappointing. But I did buy crisps!)
2) Grundy Street - where Valerie Dyer is from! Rather modern today, and right across the street from Chrisp Street Market.
3) the real Nonnatus House, St Fride Swide’s mission house (and proof that I was there) as well as the estate that is next to it.
4) All Saint’s Poplar, a church mentioned frequently in the programme, although filming is actually done at St Anne’s Limehouse, which is just up the road.
