Request: Idk if you would but could you write one where y/n is kind of a loner in school and then one day Joe starts talking to her and has a crush on her but she won’t accept the compliments thinking he’s playing a prank or something and she’s like really depressed and yet she doesn’t believe him, he’s the only person she can talk to. Idk like make it cute? I’m trying my best since this being my first time asking someone to write one 💙
Requests are OPEN!
A/N: So I changed this up quite a bit since I wasn’t really inspired to write the “school” plot but I did want to write it as it was your first time asking! ( know it’s taken me some time but like I said, I wasn’t inspired. Also, I know Joe has left Gleam (tears) but for this, he’s still part of it!
Meeting after meeting, he felt as if the day had been going on forever. At this point, he wasn’t even listening; subconsciously nodding his head to whatever was being said and hoping he would receive an email filling him in later. He rested his chin on his right hand as his left hand played with his phone, spinning it on the table. He looked over at the clock, 7pm. He had been here for 12hrs already and by the muffling sounds around him, it didn’t look like he was heading home for a while. As his eyes drifted from the clock, they landed on her.
He looked through the glass walls of the office he was in and watched as she began shutting everything off. She was fairly new, having only worked here for a month but he still hadn’t worked up the courage to speak to her. She didn’t look like the kind of girl who would go for someone like him. He was weird, immature and made videos in his room for a living. She was posh; liking her designer brands, heels and accessories. He sighed as she turned off her desk light, picked up her purse and headed towards the exit. Two hours later and he was finally finished.
The next day, he was back at it again but something was different this time. They were on the same side of the glass walls. She sat on the opposite side of the table with a notepad in hand, her phone resting beside it. The meeting carried on as normal, no one addressing the fact that there was a new member to the group but he couldn’t ignore her that easily. As everyone decided to break for lunch, she returned from the kitchen with a salad in hand and began eating. He sat there, eating one of the sandwiches he had made at home and the room remained silent; not a single word was spoken.
The meeting started again and since, once again, he was only paying attention to her, it ended fairly quick. He looked at the time, 8:43pm. He was meant to be meeting the boys for a couple of drinks at their favourite spot but after the day he had, who knows if he’d actually make it there.
“I can’t believe you do that everyday.” She said, her voice quiet and calming.
“The trick is to not pay attention and wait for the email they send out immediately afterwards.” He explained, laughing. “Hey,” He said, stopping her from leaving the room. “I noticed you don’t really talk to many people around here…”
“I prefer to keep to myself in the office, stay out of the way.” She replied. For someone who likes flashy things, she sure doesn’t like the spotlight.
“Do you want to come out with me and a couple of my friends? We’re just heading for a couple of drinks.” He didn’t know what possessed him to ask her, as he was just going to ditch and go home anyway but his mouth had reacted before his brain and suddenly, they were on their way to the bar.
The night was calm, just as he expected it to be. The boys had already ordered him a beer, not thinking he would bring someone so he headed to buy her a drink. She sat next to him, keeping her hand on the bottle at all times and remained quiet. She wouldn’t speak unless spoken to and he was beginning to feel as if she felt left out so he ignored the boys and put his attention on her. They began talking as if they had known each other their whole lives and everything felt natural between them. They laughed, joked and even shared a couple flirtatious looks.
As the night came to an end, he insisted he walked her home even though she only lived down the street. They walked in silence but it wasn’t awkward. His hand brushed hers a couple of times but he was too nervous to take hold of it. Arriving at the house, he sighed as he realized the night was officially over.
“Thank you for walking me.” She said, unlocking her front door. She turned back around to him and placed a soft, gentle kiss on his right cheek. She pulled back, smiled at him before disappearing into her house.
