American Teen part 1
Sam Holland x Reader
I know this is trash but Khalid is my baby daddy rn and this was inspired by his song American Teen from his album
And this was also 100% inspired by @lovelyimagines and her Harry Holland fics so please read them
And guys btw I know the song lyrics should be in italics but I use my phone and it wont put the italics in when I copy and paste🤷🏻♀️
You were standing behind the register at your local bookstore. Your mom was close with all the local businesses so she got you a job there. It was all you could ask for in a job, never really busy or crowded. And you got to read all the books you could for free.
One day you were reading an old copy of The Outsiders when a large group of people came in. You could tell they were a family.
“Hello” you smiled at them
“Hello!” The woman said. She had an accent that was foreign to you.
“How are you folks today?” You asked stepping out from behind the counter.
“Oh just wonderful darling thank you” she said. “I’m looking for Chaos Walking do you have the books?” She asked.
You shook your head and waved at them to follow you. You knew exactly where they were. You’d finished them in a little over a week and put them in a display for the suggested young adult reads. Instead of the whole family following you a tall freckled boy followed you. You saw his cheeks turn bright red when you flashed a smile his way. And boy was he cute.
“Here ya go” you said pointing to the display.
“Thank you” his eyes roamed your body. Not in a sexual way but you knew he was looking for your name.
“Y/N” you smiled.
“Sam” he said.
Both of you walked back to the front and he handed you the books. You could tell he was looking at you as you rang them up.
“33 dollars and 60 cents will be your total today”
“Love do you have a 50?” The woman said looking through her wallet.
“I do mum” Sam said. He handed you the bill and his mom slapped his arm. He flinched and you giggled.
“Don’t take that darling here” the older man who you assumed was his father handed you a twenty, ten and a five. You handed Sam his money back and finished ringing them up. The woman was looking at the pamphlets at the front.
“Sam look there a poetry club here” the woman said.
“I don’t write mum”
“Don’t mean you can’t come” you chimed in. His mom smiled and agreed.
“There’s even a piano here Sammy” his father said looking around.
“Cool” the younger boy said running over to it.
“Don’t touch it unless you ask” Sam said.
“You’re fine” you said. You handed Sam the bag of books.
“You know” you began. “There’s a party going on tonight at the cliff. It’s for my brothers birthday and you should come”
He blushed and looked down giving a big smile.
“Are you asking me on a date?”
“N-“ you were taken back a little. “Yes” you shoulders straightened out and you stood up more.
“Okay I’ll go” he made grabby hands at you. You handed him your phone.
“Could you at least unlock it?” He turned the phone to you. You placed your thumb on the home screen unlocking it. He did the same for you. The two of you exchanged numbers and they left.
You couldn’t stop thinking about him and you hoped he couldn’t stop thinking about you.
Living a good life full of good vibes
My eyes are on the grey skies
Saying I don’t want to come home tonight
You began to doubt he was even going to come when you felt your phone vibrate in your hands.
“Hello?!” You answered quickly.
“I’m here but I don’t see you” he sounded confused. You stood up on your tippy toes and looked around. Finally you saw him standing on the outskirts of the party. You waved and he waved back. You ended the phone call and ran toward him.
“Hey” he said giving you a hug.
“I was doubting you’d even show up Sam” you looked up at him. His freckles looked like star constatations and it kinda turned you on.
“I’d never leave a pretty girl hanging” he shrugged his shoulders and you two broke out into laughter. He was awkward but it was okay because you were too.
Yeah, and I’m high up, off what?
I don’t even remember
But my friend passed out in the Uber ride
The whole night consisted of beers and laughter as everyone danced their hearts out. Some people were drunk but you and Sam stayed clear of it. One beer was enough for you and him. You lead him to a bunch of rocks near the cliff over looking the lake.
“So, are you on vacation?” You asked sitting on the tallest rock. He wasn’t far behind you. He plopped himself down next to you and you handed him a soda.
“I’m actually looking at schools” he said opening it up. He took a sip and offered it to you. You shook your head and he cleaned the bottle laying it against a smaller rock nearby.
“Schools huh?” You said. He looked at you and you could swear his heart was about to beat out of his chest. He closed his eyes and leaned into you. You placed your lips onto his. They were soft yet rough. You placed your hand on his cheek and moved closer to him. Next thing you knew you were making out with the cute British boy from the book store.
Oh, I’m from the city of the 9-1-5
Where all the girls are pretty
And they’re down for the hype
All my boys are with me
Going up for the night
But who cares, who cares?
His hand were all over your body and you wanted him here and now and you knew he wanted you too.
“Y/N?” You heard someone calling. The two of you broke your kiss and looked around.
“Oh my god there you are!” Your friend came up a little to drunk for comfort.
“Yeah?” You said a little frustrated. Sam looked away a little embarrassed. You propped your self up on your elbows looking up at her.
“Your-hiccup- brother-hiccup- is loo-hiccup-king for you”. You rolled your eyes.
“for what” you whined.
“The happy birthday song!” She pleaded with you.
“Fine we’ll be there in a minute” you sighed. She stumbled away and you looked for Sam. He was already walking down the rocks on the opposite side of where your friend came.
“Sam wait!” You said running to catch up to him.
“I’m sorry” you said panting when you caught up to him.
“For what?” He down at you with a smile.
“No need to be sorry love I just needed to take a piss” he kissed your forehead. “I’ll be back, promise”
‘Cause this is our year
So wake me up in the spring
While I’m high off my American dream
You waited near the center of the party where Sam said he’d meet you. You assumed he got lost so you walked around looking for him.
“Looking for your boyfriend?” Your friend said. You jumped in fear
“God Ty you scared me” You said putting your hand over your heart.
“He left like 20 minutes ago Y/N sorry” he placed a hand on your shoulder. You were a little hurt by the fact he left you hanging. Exactly like he said he wouldn’t
We don’t always say what we mean
That’s the lie of an American Teen
