In which Eddie is nervous for his first date with Y/N and when he sees her outfit, he becomes breathless. Literally
Eddie nervously wiped away the sweat from his palms onto his pants as he sat stiffly on the couch. He looked around at the pictures on the living room walls to distract himself but to no avail. He couldn’t stop thinking about her.
The girl who he was waiting to go on a date with now. The girl who helped him to the nurses office when he couldn’t find his inhaler. The girl he desperately likes.
He met her in the halls when Henry Bowers, notorious for picking on the little guy, punched him in the stomach which knocked the breath out of him. Eddie reached in his pockets to find his inhaler but felt nothing but emptiness. Eddie was starting to panic and gasp even harder when he suddenly felt hands helping him off of the school floor.
It was her. Y/N.
She was leading him as fast as she could to the nurses office and managed to get him there before any serious damage was done. She even waited for him so she could walk him to class.
Eddie smiled fondly as he remembered their first meeting but quickly snapped his focus to the living room entrance when someone cleared their throat. When Eddies vision reached the entrance, he was met with the sight of Y/N. She looked stunning. She was wearing a pastel, floral dress with her hair pulled back and was wearing white flats. Eddie felt his heart rate pick up as he felt even more nervousness form in his stomach. He stood up and tried to take a step towards her but his legs felt weak.
“Eddie?” He heard Y/N ask.
Eddie felt as though his lungs were deflated balloons and he couldn’t make them grow back to size no matter how much air he took in. Eddie heard a muffled version of Y/Ns voice before he saw his surroundings fade to black.
Eddie slowly opened his eyes a few minutes later and found himself staring at the ceiling. He tried to sit up but a soft hand gently pushed him back. he looked to the side and saw Y/N. His head was in her lap and she was holding a cold, wet rag against his forehead.
“What happened?” He asked as he continued to look at Y/Ns face.
Y/N softly stroked his hair and Eddie blushed.
“Well, my mom and I think you passed out due to nervousness and shortness of breath.” She replied.
Eddie felt his face heat up due to the fact that she knew he was nervous to see her.
“What can I say.” He started as he looked into Y/Ns eyes, “You make me breathless.”
Y/N giggled and looked down at him.
“The feeling is mutual.”
