That weekend, Will received a message that caught him off
guard. He had been so focused on his conversation with Nico throughout the week
that he’d forgotten about Joey. At least until his name lit up his phone
Movie tonight? I can
pick you up?
The message made Will feel guilty and uncertain. A week ago,
the idea of going on a date was exciting and even a relief. At the time there
was no possibility of one day getting back together with Nico. There was no
urge to spend every waking moment texting him and smiling over stupid messages
throughout the night until Cecil threw a pillow at him and told him to at least
silence the phone.
A week ago, he’d wanted nothing more than to tear Nico out
of his heart. He would’ve agreed to the date without mulling it over so much.
Now, though, he wasn’t so sure. Going on a date now would
feel wrong. In the back of his mind, he would feel guilty because of Nico.
Because Nico was trying so hard to be better. He was trying hard to be Will’s
friend again. And Will didn’t want to repay it by going on a date behind his
Instead of answering, he called Joey and hoped to find a way
out of the date without necessarily having to explain his entire situation.
• he can’t make out whether his head hurts because of all the vodka he chugged straight out of the bottle yesterday, or because of this half-naked ginger guy in a satin robe singing what seems like a karpe diem song
• he finally opens both of his eyes and WOW HVA FAEN where is he and why is sana’s friend noora staring him right in the eye?
• “what time is it? did i… spend the night?”
• “ahh, good morning, mysterious friend of noora’s! a cup of coffee? tea?”
“umm… no, thanks, a glass of water will do” though it feels like even a gallon wouldn’t make any difference
• eskild seems extra pleased with himself, sits down cross-legged next to noora and now elias feels four eyes staring at him
• noora is too polite to ask when is he leaving, and she pretends to not have 25 missed calls from sana and twice as many angry texts from her
• linn is peeking out of her bedroom door every 20 minutes to check whether her couch is available, letting out a loud sigh and disappearing again
• elias’ head is buzzing and what has to be water sliding down his throat isn’t helping a tiniest bit, this cup is like a droplet of water in a desert
• after finishing the cup, he shyly places it on the coffee table in hopes that his face says it all and eskild will pour some more
• noora works up the courage to ask: “hey, elias… so when are you planning on going home? I think it’s getting hard for sana to cover for you”
• “OH SHIT!! sana saw me yesterday, didn’t she?” elias thinks. that’s it, he’s fucked, he will never live this down, how can he look into his sister’s eyes after what he’s done?
• it feels like a long time until elias finally answers. by that point noora feels uncomfortable and wishes she’d never asked
• “yeah, I should probably get going. can you show me where the tram stop is?”
• he doesn’t know anyone else’s names apart from noora’s so, while trying to get the duvet off himself (who cared enough to bring it to him anyway? it’s not like he would’ve noticed its absence), elias shouts: “thanks everyone, you’re all the best!! I hope to see you soon when I’m not blackout drunk falling onto your couch. I’m sorry about that!”
• eskild shoves noora away from the door, suddenly all dressed and ready to walk elias to the tram stop (not that noora would mind staying home, it’s 9:30 am and she’s barely had any sleep)
• eskild is a dad friend and, even though he’ll never admit it, he misses being a cool parent to isak - that’s why he takes the first opportunity to be a caretaker, even if that means exiting the apartment early in the morning to walk a hungover boy to the tram stop that’s really just on the other side of the road
could you do a hc with jealous!tyler? i love the idea of it. (i also love you account, keep doing what you're doing!!)
(Ahh thank you <3)
- He’s not even good about hiding the fact that he’s jealous - Whenever you mention one of your guy friends he gets a lil huffy - Whenever people flirt with you he clenches his jaw really tight and its hot but also scary - You politely tell people that you’re flattered but that you’re not interested - And Tyler get’s smug as fuck - But if the person keeps persistently hitting on you Tyler physically steps in between you and tells them to back off - You wrap your arms around him and hug him really tight - Lots of affirmation that you only want him - He trusts you so it’s not like he ever gets mad at you - He just gets frustrated because he doesn’t understand why you’d choose him over everyone else, especially when’s being all jealous - Okay but also he buys you jewelry with his initials (*cough* if you’re into collars he gets you so many pretty collars omg) - And he gives you hickeys everywhere - He likes it when you wear his clothes outside of the house
