John Murphy x Reader
Word Count: 923
Wanna read Part 1 of this one-shot, ‘Splendour’? You can find it here
It had been numerous weeks since I had accepted John Murphy into Polis, and we had certainly grown closer. Long gone were the feelings of mistrust; all that I held for the boy was respect. I had taken a liking to him, though to what extent, I was unaware of; or rather, a topic I did not wish to address. We often stayed up late talking, laughing and enjoying the cool night air in each other’s company.
The air was warm, and as a treat, had decided to visit the market located in the centre of Polis. Of course, I had chosen to bring along Murphy with me, now one of my closest companions. Noticing he had strayed from the group that accompanied me, I looked around for him, my eyes falling on his figure talking to a girl at a kebab stand. The scene looked innocent enough, though their conversation looked to be far more serious than the food she was serving, judging by his suspicious looks and her pleading gaze. I was ready to tear my eyes away, when he leaned over and kissed her on the cheek lightly. Though the gesture was small, it caused my heart to snap in two, instantly crestfallen.
Of course, I thought bitterly. Of course there’s someone else.
My mental rambling was interrupted by one of my guards, who asked me if I was alright. Solemnly, I nodded, ordering them to escort me back to my chambers, leaving John to himself in the market square.
Actual lines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, part BB-8
*An average day outside Maz Kanata's tavern. Rey and Finn are walking by a babbling brook. Yes, there totally was a babbling brook*
Finn (romance novel-like):
Rey, I have something really important I want to ask you. First off, I want to say...you look really beautiful today. The way the light catches your eyes, I just want to stare into them for the rest of my life.
Rey (in her head):
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god...he's finally doing this. I don't know how I feel about this.
I can't deny what I feel for you. You're my forever girl and I want to ask you-
*Suddenly, Kylo Ren drops from the sky. He removes his helmet and flips his hair sexily. Rey and Finn both blush*
Kylo (tortured soul mode activated):
Hey babe...we've only just met but to me, you're the real chosen one. You bring balance to my life because I love you. You bring me to life and you taste like Vader, only sweeter! I want to be with you to the point that I'm willing to brave the coldness of the light...as long as you're the light at the end of the tunnel.
Rey (in her head):
Oh...okay. I didn't know that about him but for some reason, I'd be totally okay with that. Man, what's happening right now? Is this 'confess your love to Rey day'? Who's next-
*Poe Dameron flies in on his X-Wing and jumps out, blaster at hand*
HEY. Get away from Rey, I'm her one true love!
What are you talking about? You didn't even share a single scene with her!
The absence of a scene does not mean the scene did not occur! Rey, you remember that time I confessed my love to you before taking on a rancor, an army of jawas, and a Sith lord that was sent to kill you, right?
Um...I think...I think I gotta go. Yeah, this has been great and all but-
*At this point, a whole bunch of characters start showing up as Rey looks more and more confused*
Hux (using his commanding voice):
I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE YOU OUT ON A DATE. PERHAPS THIS WEEKEND. WE CAN GO SEE WAR TAUNTAUN, INGLOURIOUS REBELS, MAD MAX: TATOOINE ROAD, OR-
Hey Rey...you, me. Ladies night. Then maybe we can go back to my place and test out my whips. (winks)
Only an admiral can show you a good time, not like these clowns! You like ships? I got a whole fleet! (starts tossing out credits, making it rain)
BB-8 (in droid speak):
I'm just a bachelor! I'm looking for a partner! Someone who knows how to ride! Without even falling off!
Well, we don't know if you're my daughter yet so...
IT'S A TRAP. THEY DON'T REALLY LOVE YOU. I'M YOUR ONE TRUE LOVE.
*flexes muscles while still in chrome suit*
I'M A TREYTOR BECAUSE I HAVE FEELINGS FOR YOU! JUST FOR YOU, I WILL ALSO DESERT THE FIRST ORDER! (performs an elaborate mating dance routine with his spinning baton thing)
*as everyone argues, Rey flees*
And at that point, Rey realized that this was one star war that she wanted no part of. No other war was as deadly as a shipping war. That's why this chapter's called, 'Rey Doesn't Need a Lover'-
Rey (breaking the fourth wall):
Damn it, Quentin Tarantino, go back to the Hateful Eight!
