Note: First time writing for Steve but ay whatever. I hope you all enjoy! Feel free to tell me what ya think! :)
It wasn’t every night your parents would leave you to take care of your 8 month old sister, but after your father got a promotion at his job, they wanted to celebrate. You really didn’t want to ruin their celebration, so you offered to take care of little Anna for as long as they needed you to.
The only bad part was that you had to cancel your date with your boyfriend. You were dating Steve Harrington, the “King” of the school. He had told he really didn’t care about that title, and it was a bit stupid. You have been dating for at least 3 months, and your parents absolutely adored him, and you like to think his parents adore you too.
Anyway, Steve had been a bit upset when you told him you had to cancel. You were both going to watch a movie at his house since you worked at the theater and didn’t want to be there any longer than you needed to.
“Come on (y/n), we’ve been planning this for a week,” Steve said over the phone, you sighed.
“I know, I know- maybe tomorrow I can come over,” you said, feeling bad. Steve was silent for a moment.
“I’ll let it slide this time, but you have to promise me that we’ll spend the whole day together.” You furrowed your eyebrows.
“The whole day?” you asked, you can see him nodding.
“Yup! To make up for all the other times you had to cancel!” You scoffed.
“I only canceled once before this!” you claimed, he hummed.
“All day tomorrow so clear your schedule, babe,” You were silent for a moment, before a smile grew on your lips.
“I’ll get to that…I’m really sorry, Steve,” you apologized again.
“It’s alright (y/n), what are you doing anyway, I didn’t even ask,”
“I have to watch Anna, my parents are going out to celebrate or something,” you shrugged, moving on your stomach, holding your phone against your ear.
“You have to babysit?” he asked, his voice changing suddenly, like he was excited. You nodded as if he could see you.
“Yeah- I’m not canceling on you for no reason,” you laughed, Steve laughed as well. Your heart sped up because you really loved hearing his laugh.
“You know what- our date is not being canceled, tell your parents I’ll be there in 10 minutes,” Your smile fell, and you tilted your head.
“You heard me! I’ll be there in ten minutes,” You could just hear him get up, and grab his car keys. You sat up.
“Steve! My parents aren’t going to like it if my boyfriend comes over while they’re gone- they might think-”
“Come on- we’re going to babysit, that’s all! I’ll see you in ten minutes! Love you!” Your jaw dropped. Was he seriously going to come over?
“(y/n)?” his voice broke you out of your thoughts and you shook off.
“I love you too, but if my parents turn you away at the door- don’t blame me!” He laughed, and you did too, before the line went dead.
