Nick Robinson - Lovebirds
It felt so great to write one about Nick. He is just such a cutie.
I grew up with the cast of Melissa and Joey even though I wasn’t part of the production. My dad was a cameraman and I spent half of my teenage years with the cast on the filming. I became part of the family and I was so happy I could be there during all of the seasons.
This whole thing didn’t just give me an amazing experience, but some really important people. Taylor and I became so close, she was one of my best friends by the end of season one. We were so similar, we spent a lot of time together on set and out of set too.
And then there was Nick. We didn’t talk too much during the first season and it was mostly because I was so afraid to talk to him since I had a crush on him. He was so different from the guys in my school and he had this cute smile no one could resist, you can’t blame me for falling for him.
Taylor was the one who couldn’t put up with my behavior anymore and forced me to talk to Nick and it was better than I thought it would be. He was really nice so in addition to his cute appearance he had a great personality. How could I not fall for him? But I kept it as a secret, only Taylor knew about it and she always nagged me about it.
“You should just tell him!” she told me at least once a week.
“No, I’m good with just being friends,” I always replied rolling my eyes.
“But you could be more! I don’t get you, woman!” she growled and then let it go.
really okay with just being his friend, it was more than I would have imagined
when I first saw him. He was in his pj’s and he was eating some icecream when I
first walked on the set with my dad. He was fifteen then, I was almost fifteen,
I had five more days until my birthday, and he wished me happy birthday five
days later making me blush so hard my dad actually asked me if I was okay.
I didn’t expect him to like me back, I was sure I wasn’t his type, so I got used to it, not big deal.
Now it was the last day of the entire shooting, the series was over and that meant I would meet these amazing people almost every day.
“I can’t believe we would have to arrange a meeting from now to see each other. It was so great that we knew we would meet here every day,” Taylor mumbled hugging me tightly before the last scene. You could feel the sadness in the air, everyone was saying goodbye all day, it was really depressing.
“But it won’t come between us!” I told her kissing her cheek.
“Guys, let’s get over with it!” the director shouted so everyone had to take their places. I stood next to dad as they did the last scene.
I couldn’t take my eyes off Nick, he looked so great in his sailor suit. Unlike Ryder, he was really an intelligent guy, it was something I always adored him for. I almost cried when they all hugged at the end of the scene. The director shouted “cut” but they didn’t let go of each other, so suddenly everyone joined into the group hug. I was stuck between my dad and Melissa, and my face was only millimeters away from Nick’s. For a brief minute we looked into each other’s eyes and I swear, his gaze moved down to my lips for a second. But then the group split and the moment was over.
“I saw it,” Taylor snapped at me grabbing my wrist as everyone started to pack their things after our goodbye.
“You saw what?” I asked in confusion.
“How you and Nick were looking at each other.” She couldn’t hide her smile and it was catchy, she made me smile too.
“I don’t know what you are talking about,” I told her shaking my head and avoided her eyes.
“Oh you know! Jesus, the way he was looking at you!”
“Taylor, don’t even start, okay? I have to go and pack my stuff. Talk to you later,” I told her trying to get out of this conversation.
“Argh, you are such a pussy,” she rolled her eyes before walking away.
I walked to the place I always put my staff since I didn’t have a dressing room there and started to pack my and my dad’s stuff while he was taking care of his camera. When I was done I stood up and turning around I was about to find my dad but I bumped into someone. It was Nick.
“Oh, sorry, I didn’t know you were here,” I awkwardly laughed fixing my hair.
“No, I’m sorry for standing in your personal area,” he chuckled. “So, this is the last time we meet here.”
“Yeah, it’s crazy to think about it. We were like, kids when we first met here,” I nodded smiling at the thought of that day.
“Yes, it was before your birthday!”
“You remember it?” I asked with wide eyes. I wasn’t expecting him to remember the shy and quiet girl who was there with her dad.
“Of course I do, and I also remember how you blushed when I wished you happy birthday.”
“Oh my God,” I said closing my eyes. Why did he have such a great memory?
“Don’t worry, it was cute. I liked it.”
“You did? What could you like about it? I was so awkward,” I laughed shaking my head.
“I found it really satisfying that a girl was affected by me,” he told me with a proud smile. “I didn’t have much success at the age of fifteen,” he shrugged.
“But now you have,” I said a bit sadly because I knew he must have had someone in his sight and it probably wasn’t me.
“I guess we could say that, but I’m still stuck with the same girl I made blush five years ago.”
“What?” I asked immediately with wide eyes. I must have scared him because his head snapped up looking at me in confusion.
“What? Uh, I mean… Fuck,” he muttered and I was starting to feel like it was some kind of twisted joke Taylor planned out to tease me.
“Are you saying that you…”
“That I have a crush on you since we first talked? No, that would be silly,” he laughed sarcastically. “Only if you are okay with it,” he said with a sudden serious tone.
I was taken aback by the happenings. In just a few seconds my inner teenage self started to do backflips through my mind repeating Nick’s words.
I didn’t reply for a few minutes because my brain was blank I had no idea what I should say, and I guess Nick took it as an answer.
“Sorry I unloaded this on you, I don’t know what I was thinking,” he laughed awkwardly and was about to walk away but I grabbed his wrist.
“No, Nick, sorry, I just… You have no idea how long I have been waiting for you to say this.”
“Really?” he asked raising his eyebrows. “Because I thought that you only saw me as… like a brother or something.”
“Oh, no. I was crushing on you, really badly, just ask Taylor.”
He chuckled and I got lost in his beautiful smile.
“Now I regret that I didn’t make a move earlier, but… if you want to, we can go somewhere, sometime, I’m free next week.”
now?” I asked arching an eyebrow at him. I didn’t want to wake up and realize
it was all a dream, or give him the chance to change his mind until the next
He smiled at me nodding, making my heart beat faster.
“Okay. Just let me get my stuff quickly.”
He turned around and took about two steps before turning back.
“What’s wrong?” I asked seeing his furrowed eyebrows.
“I just forgot something.”
Before I could finish my sentence he pressed his lips to mine.
I literally melted into his soft lips. He was such a great kisser, I always envied the girls who played his girlfriends on the show, and now I was the one who he was kissing and it wasn’t even in the script.
He was so tall, I had to tiptoe to be able to hug his neck, but I couldn’t care less. The kiss turned into a make out session and I just couldn’t get enough of him. But then we were interrupted by none other than Taylor.
“Aw, look at the lovebirds! I knew it!” she yelled excited making us pull away. I felt myself blushing and I hid my face in Nick’s chest not wanting to see Taylor’s satisfied face.
“Okay, okay, there is nothing to see here,” Nick told her chuckling as he had his arms around me.
I heard her sneer in happiness before she walked away and I was able to look up at Nick.
“Sorry about that, she could be really annoying sometimes,” I mumbled rolling my eyes.
“It’s okay. I’ll go and get my stuff. Stay here, I want to do this again.”
“Do what?” I asked in confusion.
“This,” he said and kissed me again.
