Singing In My Sleep
Story Summary: You didn’t think making a mix CD for someone would lead up to this.
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader
A/N: This is actually based on something that happened to me personally (the first part of the story, at least!). I made a mix CD for someone at work and somehow spiraled out of control. Unfortunately, I found out that the person I made the CD for was in a relationship and yeah…that’s my story. However, this one has a happier ending haha.
“(Y/N)?” Hesitantly, your eyes shift over to the man beside you, his bright blue eyes observing your every movement. You take a deep breath, attempting to lower the nervousness inside you. However, your heart beats briskly beneath your chest as the anxiety increases much to your dismay. Chewing on your lip nervously, you meet his gaze as he moves closer to you, closing the distance. Instinctively, you move back a bit to keep the space between the two of you. Sighing, he rubs the back of his neck as he looks down on his feet. “Why did you make it?” he asks barely above a whisper.
A part of you wishes that you left work a little more quickly, not stalling around so you would be able to escape, living another day without having to face your co-worker/friend on why you made that stupid mix CD. Really, the reason why you made it was to prove yourself that you could make a move on a guy. Being the coward that you are though, you gave the CD to your friend instead of your crush, fearing that your crush would reject you and ultimately avoid you all together. It never crossed your little mind though that your friend would think of the CD as a romantic gesture of sorts… which it kinda was. Also, it never crossed your little mind that by just leaving the CD on his car without your name on it would cause such a riot at work. It never crossed your little mind that he would ask everyone about it. It never crossed your little mind that he would ask you about it. It never crossed your little mind that this stupid mix CD would make you question your feelings towards your friend.
