Marinette freezes in her spot behind the counter. Busy replenishing the tins of loose leaf tea for the more popular brews, she hadn’t heard the delicate chime at the front door. She turns in slow-motion to the shop floor, watching as the new customer starts chatting with the blond standing by the shelves. She hadn’t heard the front door chime, which means it’s too late-
“Oh, I have no uncertainteas about finding the right blend for you.”
It’s too late, and Adrien has taken center stage.
The customer, a woman around forty or so, giggles behind her hand and bats her eyelashes at him. Gross.
And it’s not like Marinette can blame her, really: the only thing Adrien has more of than looks is charm, and both are abundant. When the bright-eyed boy with a voice that toed the line between silk and sin had clocked in on the first day, Marinette herself had experienced a good swoon. She’d even made the mistake of mentioning her handsome new co-worker to Alya, resulting in a one-woman warpath dead set on getting the two of them together. Normally, Marinette would appreciate the enthusiasm, were it not for the one glaring, unfortunate, and utterly unavoidable problem:
“Well, I’ll leaf you to browse the rest of our selection,” Adrien says. The grin is quick to his lips, lips that would otherwise be very kissable were they not the purveyors of such unholy atrocities.
Given the way he swings that grin to light on her the moment that the customer looks away, Marinette is sure he’s doing it on purpose.
‘ YOU’RE NO FUN ! as if a life without ramen would be a better and healthy life. it’s a sad life , ‘ttebayo .’ the blond scoffed , chopsticks pointed accusingly at the older shinobi while azures watched him / sky like mirrors of freedom tinted by mock disappointment / oceans holding and bearing amusement.
he’d be all fixed up and really nervous to ask you to be his grill and then you’re just like ‘hoe why r u dressed so nicely and why r u sweating so much??'
then he just says it like “Y/N I really like you and dknsksnsowbdibe” and you’re all chill and when he calms down you two talk and boom you’re dating
OR it’d go like
“hey y/n do you wanna see a magic trick?!"
"poof you’re now my girlfriend"
tbh I see it going both ways
-anyways omfg it’d be so fucking fun
he’d tease you a lot how cute
-he knows where to stop and he’s actually really soft for you
like he’d always check up on you when he’s out of the country like five minutes later ring ring oh look it’s him again asking if you washed up yet
and the same with him whenever you’re gone you always check on him and ask him how he’s doing and it’s just cUtE
he’s really soft for you like he wants you to be happy all the time and doesn’t want you to be sad ever
-but at the same time
"you’re such a bitch y/n"
"thank you Hae"
it’s such a playful relationship
you two are best friends like you do everything together and make fun of each other and just have a lot of fun
"y/n come here I have a secret to tell you"
"What do you want this time"
he leans in real close and then burps into your ear
but it’s all good cause you burp louder
he probably texts you at 3 am just to make fun of something you said before
imagine accidentally sleeping on his shoulder and him just worrying not knowing what to do but doesn’t move cos he doesn’t want to wake you
and then then he falls asleep after taking pictures to tease you
but the members take pictures of you two and they make fun of you
denies the fact that he likes it, but when you say you won’t do it again he says to do it again lol
he cAnt even beleaf he’s dating you like he’d think you’re an angel and that you own the world or smth
whenever you two fight over dumb shit he’s all like "are we done fighting” and ur just like “ya” and then you’re all good
you two never really fight over anything serious because when one of you guys make a mistake you two own up to it and apologize
like the most serious thing that probably happened was him getting upset you didn’t tell him something first
tbh he just really wants to be number one and wants to be lof by you
like trust is the biggest thing to him and you two would nEVER DO ANYTHING TO HURT EACH OTHER
when you visit him when he’s practicing he takes a break and you two sit and he talks about what he did at practice and even though he’s sweating you still get close to him
-and then someone would yell “Lee DongHyuck get your ass over here stop making out"
He’d get upset but you’d stay to watch them practice
after he’s done getting clean and you two go out sometimes (more like all the time you visit) and he’s so happy to treat you and you’re like
"STOP WASTING MONEY ON MY I GOT A JOB FOR A REASON HOe"
then he’d say "save your money for our wedding day"
Youd shut up lmao because you’re so embarrassed like who says that y'all only 16 or smth
but you like it
you would scream whenever you two pass by any clothes store and want to buy everything but have no money and you leave before he tries to buy it for you
y'all so soft and nice yet hate each other you kno??? Like it’s so nice to be around him and you think you’re not enough but to him you’re so much more than enough you can look at him and he’d be like ilysm
