Don’t look down. Don’t look down (y/n).
You were repeating this mantra in your head as you were walking across an unsteady bridge. Mind you it was much too high for your liking for something of this structure. The thing is heights don’t really bother you, if you were on something stable or sturdy. This was neither and that didn’t sit well with you.
“Percival you need to hurry up!” Merlin’s voice echoed in your ear.
“Working on it Merlin,” You said.
So, continuing that mantra, you made your way across the bridge and to the site of you mission. Which was to save Eggsy. Cause for some reason he wouldn’t have sex with the target, and she was super pissed. Leading her to taking him to this hidden but extravagant amazon mansion.
Part, if not all of you was glad that he didn’t sleep with her. Only because of you very obvious crush on him. One that everyone but him knew about. Roxy had even flat out told him that you liked him when you weren’t in the room, but he still didn’t do anything about it. So that bring you to three weeks ago.
You gave up on him. You were still practically head over heels for him, but you pushed those feelings to the side and began dating your current boyfriend, Logan. Logan was nearly everything you wanted in a guy. Smart, funny, charming, loyal, and very attractive. He had these beautiful blue-green eyes that made you melt, and floppy brown hair, with a clean-shaven face. He treated you right, and made you feel very loved. He made you happy, but he wasn’t Eggsy. But who are you to be saying these things when Eggsy wasn’t yours to begin with?
Getting out of your own head, you made your way to the side of the building. You had no intel going in, so you prayed for the best as you snuck inside through an open window. You were in a bedroom and it was massive. It had to have been the room of the bitch who took Eggsy. Noticing a feminine figure laying down, you took the opportunity to cuff her to the headboard and place your hand around her throat. She giggled when the handcuffs clicked around her wrists, but turned over to see you and your extremely pissed off face. So naturally she screamed. There goes the element of surprise to anyone else in the mansion. So you cut to the chase.
“Where’s Eggsy,” You said.
“Who?” She replied looking absolutely clueless.
“The man you took two nights ago.”
“You mean Thomas?”
“Where. Is. He.” You punctuated each word with the tightening of your hand as you were losing patience.
Before she could answer someone else entered the room. You turned your head to see,
“(Y/n)? What are you doing here?”
That was when you noticed the lack of clothes he was wearing. Shirtless with a towel hanging dangerously low on his hips, and his hair still damp from a shower.
“Question is what are you doing here?” Your hand relaxed around the bitches throat. That was when she took the chance to actually speak up.
“Do you know her babe?” She asked. Babe? BABE!
“That’s my girlfriend,” He said coolly.
“You motherfucker!” You yelled.
You lunged for him, and used your leg and wrapped it around his neck, knocking him out. You turned back to the woman, eyes darkened with rage you stalked over to her and punched her in the face. Not only did she kidnap Eggsy, she was fucking your boyfriend.
“Now where the fuck is he!” You said.
“Ask your boyfriend,” She smirked.
“You fucking cunt!” You punched her again, but before you could land another hit, Logan’s arms wrapped around you and he threw you over his shoulder. You kept hitting and kicking him, but he only laughed. You calmed down just enough to ask him the same question you asked him earlier.
“What are you doing here Logan?”
“That’s just what I’m about to show you, as you’ll be the next part of it (Y/n),” He said with an evil laugh that you have never heard come out of his mouth before.
Where was the Logan you knew? The Logan who you cared about, the one who you began to fall in love with? You were silent as you thought of what you were going to say next.
“How long have you been cheating on me?” The words hurt for you to say.
“The entire time,” The moment those words left his mouth your heart shattered.
It was bad enough that you caught him cheating, but to hear him say that absolutely killed you. To feel that you were never enough for him that he needed somebody else to be happy.
“We’re here,” He said. “Now don’t run darling or I’ll have to hurt you.”
He grinned devilishly at you then left. Not that he’s already hurt you today. So you looked around and saw disfigured bodies organized and sculpted to be like a piece of art. You stared at the bloodied bodied is awe and horror. Until a faint groan caught your attention. Strapped to a chair in the center of the room was Eggsy. You ran to him and checked his pulse, it was steady but weak.
“Merlin, are you getting this?” You said.
“Yes Percival. Lancelot and I are on our way. Hold tight.”
You turned your attention back to Eggsy.
“Come on Eggsy wake up,” You said and tried waking him by shaking his shoulder.
That action earned you another groan. At least he’s responding. Even if he’s not opening his eyes. Which changed when Logan returned to the room and slammed the door behind him.
Enraged he yelled, “Do you know him?”
“He’s my partner at work that I told you about.”
“He’s Eggsy?” He said and you nodded.
“I know, I just wanted to hear you say it,” He smirked and left the room once more.
Anger once again started to build up inside you, and you stood up and were about to leave the room when you heard a weak voice behind you.
“(Y/n)? What’cha doin’ ‘ere?” Eggsy slurred.
You finally got a good look at his battered face. To think that the person you were dating did this to your best friend just about killed you. You saw him try to focus on you, but was having a rough time doing so.
“Here to save your stupid ass,” You said.
He rolled his eyes at your statement and then tried to smirk. The split lip and black eye made that impossible without hurting himself.
That’s when you came back to your senses. Looking around more closely this time, you notice the body sculpture was in the shape of a throne. That had a staircase leading up to it with bodies reaching up towards the throne. There were smaller thrones to the left and right of the main one. All composed of dead bodies. How many people have they killed? Why did they do such a horrific thing?
Those questions would have to be answered later. Cause you needed to focus on getting yourself and Eggsy out of there before the two of you were a part of that throne.
Turning your attention back to Eggsy, you took the pin holding your hair back and sliced through the ropes holding him to the chair. Once they were cut, he slumped over and started to fall asleep. You slapped his cheek and told him to stay awake. When you tried to get him up, you were met with resistance on his part.
“’M fine (y/n), I’ll wait for Merlin. Get outta ‘ere,” Eggsy said half awake. “I just wanna take a nap. Night love.”
He plopped back down on the chair and closed his eyes. You had enough of this shit, so you backhanded him across his face. His head snapping to the other side as you cupped his jaw and forced him to look at you.
“Don’t you dare close your eyes Eggsy Unwin,” You said.
“Come on love, it’s only a nap,” He whined.
Before you could reply, Logan re-entered the room. He smirked at first, until he saw you tending to Eggsy. His eyes slightly closed, nostrils flared, and a harsh scowl crossed his lips.
“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?!” He exclaimed.
“None of your business you cheating asshole,” You said.
“Oh, I think that it’s my business (y/n). You are my girlfriend-”
You turned to stare at him as you clarified, “Ex as in you’re my ex-boyfriend.”
As soon as the last syllable left your lips, he rushed towards you and grabbed your shoulders. Gripping them tight enough that you could feel the bruises forming beneath your skin. While his eyes pierced through yours.
“Since when do you think that? Since I started doing this for us? Creating this place where you would be immortalized by my side as I take over the world?”
You remained silent and clenched your jaw, cause who wouldn’t after what you’ve found out?
“Since she realized that you’re a dick,” Eggsy said.
You chuckled and Eggsy grinned back at you. Logan didn’t find that funny one bit and released his grip on you as he stormed over to Eggsy. Who by the way was still grinning like an idiot. Logan pulled his arm back ready to punch him in the jaw, but before he could hit him you lunged towards him and tackled him. Logan’s eyes, now full of rage, were directed towards you. He went to throw a punch, and you easily dodged it by quickly moving your head to the left. The two of you quickly stood up and taking his slightly slower response, you brought your right leg up to kick his left side. He slumped from the impact. You then took off your bracelet and quickly attached it to his wrist and flipped the tiny switch. You stood back as you watch Logan’s body seizure from the electricity coursing through his veins. You gotta love the gadgets you get to use.
Looking back over to Eggsy, you saw him smiling the best he could with his split lip and other facial injuries as you went back over to help him up.
“What’s that look for?” You said.
“Watching my knight in shining armor being a total badass,” He said still smiling towards you.
“Seriously Galahad? I don’t think many knights have boobs,” You rolled your eyes jokingly as he laughed.
“But the whole role reversal thing with me being-”
“The damsel in distress. I know,” He started coughing.
You looped your arm around his waist while he slung his arm around your shoulders as you made your way out of the room. The two of you were oddly silent. With the silence, you let your mind wander. Like how toned Eggsy felt beneath the tattered shirt, the amount of heat radiation off him. To how it would feel to be pinned underneath him. A crackling in your ear brought you out of your thoughts before you were too far gone, and it was Merlin announcing his arrival and to meet him outside.
Hobbling your way outside, the pair in the plane rushed to your aid so they could get you the help that you needed.
“You two look like hell,” Merlin said.
“Merlin! Don’t tell that to their faces!” Roxy said.
You would’ve laughed, but you weren’t in the mood to after the events that occurred today. You just sat there with a blank expression on your face as you made it back to the mansion. They rushed Eggsy off the plane, and you followed them wanting to make sure that Eggsy is all right.
Roxy pulled you aside and told you to, “Get some rest (Y/n), I’ll get Eggsy to medical.”
You nodded and started to walk towards your room you had for situations like this where you just couldn’t make it home. Which was more often than you’d like it to be. Before you got too far, a hand gently but firmly grabbed your arm. Your body tensed until you heard who it was.
“Relax (Y/n). It’s just me,” Merlin said and you felt relieved. “Are you alright?”
Merlin was like a second father to you. He looked out for you as much as he could.
“’M fine Merlin.”
“I’m going to bed. Night.”
You quickly made your way to your room. Closing the door behind you and flopping down onto your bed. You wanted to cry, but couldn’t and just felt broken and hopeless. Looking to your nightstand you saw two framed pictures.
One was of you and Logan, smiling and looking into each others eyes when you were walking through the park after a dinner date one night. You looked so in love and happy. Just taunting you with the new revelations of the day. Grabbing the gun you still had strapped to your side, you pulled it out, aimed it and fired. Your arm fell back to your side as the gun fell out of our loose grip.
Banging was heard outside your door. Merlin, who was accompanied by Roxy and Eggsy, who was cleared by medical mere minutes before the shot was heard.
“(Y/n)! Open the fucking door!” Roxy yelled.
“(Y/n)!” Merlin yelled.
“Love! (Y/n), please open the door,” Eggsy pleaded.
The three continued it, that was until they realized that you never locked your door when you entered. They busted in to see shattered glass, your discarded gun on the floor, blood dripping down your hand. Eggsy ran over to your side, and the moment when his skin made contact with yours, you shot up. That when he noticed the picture frame that had a bullet hole where Logan’s head should be.
His face fell into your mattress as his shoulders were shaking with silent sobs. That was when you noticed the panicked and worried looks that Merlin and Roxy gave you. Not really wanting to talk, you turned your head towards the frame. The two of them got the hint and visibly relaxed. Then leaving the room to give you and Eggsy some time alone. The two of you stayed there in silence.
“’M fine Eggsy,” You said and his head shot up as his beautiful eyes were puffy and bloodshot as his face had that one crinkle under his eyes when he was truly terrified.
He brought his hands up to your face and cradled it between his rough hands. Looking you right in the eyes.
“Don’t ya ever scare me like that again love,” He said.
“That’s kinda hard to do with-” He cut you off by pressing his lips against yours.
He pulled away before you could do anything about it.
“Got it?” He whispered.
His hot breath fanned across your face. You nodded and leaned into feel his lips against yours once more. The two of you were content with just gliding your lips across each other’s until you felt and uncomfortable pressure between your legs. Squeezing your thighs together, you pressed your bodies together even more.
Eggsy’s tongue traced the seam of your lips, you grant him access as you let your tongues intertwine. He slowly rose from his spot by your bed so he was laying on top of you. His hands then left your cheeks and went to your hips. Gripping them lightly and pulling them closer to you. A moan escaped your lips as you felt the growing bulge nudging up against your thigh. That was when everything became too real for you. You quickly pushed him away and couldn’t look him in the eyes.
“I…I..I can’t do this Eggsy,” You said in the quietest voice you could muster.
“(y/n). Love,” Eggsy said while he tried to look you in the eye.
“Please don’t Eggsy. Can you just leave me? Please?” You asked.
The room was silent after you said those words. You still couldn’t meet his gaze. That’s when you felt his hands cup your cheeks once more. You screwed your eyes shut, refusing to make eye contact with him. You could feel him move your face to meet his.
“(Y/n). Please open your eyes,” Eggsy’s voice matched your own in volume.
“I can’t,” You said and he chuckled.
“Yes ya can (y/n), now open those beautiful eyes for me.”
“No Eggsy. I can’t. I can’t do this,” Your eyes shot open and saw the utter devastation and heartbreak in his eyes. “I want to so so badly, believe me. But everything is still so fresh. And…and I don’t want to do this if you don’t feel the same. Please don’t say anything and just leave me be until I – until it doesn’t feel so fresh.”
Tears were falling down your face. More fell when Eggsy’s hands left your face and he made his way to the door. The sound of the door opening never came. He stood there, still facing the door as the tension in the room grew thicker by the second. Eggsy then turned around, chest huffed out, jaw set, and a determined look in his eyes.
“No,” He said forcefully.
“What?” You managed to squeak out.
“I’m not leaving you. I’ll never leave you again! Do ya know what it’s like to love someone you could never have, or never deserve? Then to have them tell you they don’t think you feel the same way about them? Cause I love ya so fucking much (Y/n) (L/n)!” He said and started to walk towards you. “I’ve been in love with you for so long (Y/n), and I thought that Rox was shittn’ ‘round with me when she said that you liked me. Guess she was right. But once I saw ya with Logan, I knew that I couldn’t compete.”
He had made his way back to your side. Your mouth was wide open in shock as you heard his proclamation.
“He was perfect for you, well until today, but-”
“You could never compete with him,” You whispered.
“What?” He asked.
“You never had to compete with anyone Eggsy. It was always you. Always.”
Eggsy beamed at you. You could feel the happiness radiating off him as he swooped down and connected your lips once again You were smiling into the kiss as your hands were tangled in his hair, bringing his mouth closer to yours.
On one particular tug, you pulled back in pain. Remembering that there were still glass shards in your hand. You smiled sheepishly.
“Wanna fix me up?” You said.
“I’d love to, but I’d get too distracted by ya love.”
Wordlessly, Eggsy picked you up bridal style and carried you down multiple corridors to reach the medial rooms. Upon entering one of the rooms, you were greeted by Merlin.
“What’s up Doc?” Eggsy grinned from ear to ear.
“Cheeky bastard. What did you need?” He asked.
“(y/n)’s hand needs stichin’ up.”
“No it doesn’t. Just take out the damn glass yourself Galahad. Don’t forget to bandage her hand up as well,” Merlin said then left.
“Come on you big baby. You can do it,” You teased.
That resulted in him laying you down on the bed and grabbing the supplies he needed. Once he started removing the glass, he would kiss the top of your hand in each spot he had just removed the shard from. So, a five-minute job turned into a 30 minute ordeal.
Once it was all taken care of, you made it back to your room. You cleaned up your mess from earlier, and then oh so graciously flopped onto your bed completely exhausted from today.
“Night Eggsy,” He laughed as you hadn’t bothered to change clothes still, and that your face was right in the pillow.
“Night love,” He replied and kissed the top of your head. You fell asleep with a smile on your face, and a life a little better than it was at the beginning of the day.
