This is so short, I’m sorry
A/N: This is 100% dedicated to @l-nmanuel because it was her idea (go read her everything if you haven’t already). It’s based off of this song and sort of written in Lin’s perspective.
Lin watched as you tilted your head back to laugh at whatever Anthony and Jasmine were bickering about at the moment. You were seated comfortably in your living room with your legs curled under you looking so at ease. Lin was having a tough time paying attention to whatever everyone else around him was saying as he sat admiring you. He’d never noticed the way the corner of your mouth twitched when you were trying to fight back a smile so someone could finish their story. He’d never stop appreciating the way you got giggly and affectionate after that second glass of wine, or the lilt of your laugh, or the tone of your voice.
“I guess we should head out, it’s getting late.” Jasmine finally mused, interrupting Lin’s thoughts. She pulled Anthony up along with her.
“I’m out too.” Daveed agreed and soon enough everyone was slipping on their coats and shuffling out of the apartment. Lin watched as you flipped the deadbolt and put the chain in the door. Your eyes met his as you turned and the soft smile you gave him melted his heart.
“What’s got you so caught up?” you asked amused, drifting over to him. He held his arms out and you settled into his lap.
