Perhaps I do- Chris Jackson X Reader
Could you maybe do a fanfic with Chris because I’ve never seen one with him and I’d love to see one written by you
WARNINGS: there is like two swear words
“Oh come on just sing it.”
“Only if you sing it with me. Take it or leave it.” Chris told me, crossing his arms and smiling at me.
“You are a way better singer.” I argued.
“Not true, I love your voice. Which is why we should sing it together.”
“Chris I will fight you over this, you are the better singer.”
“Daveed, Oak. What do you guys think?”
“We think you love each other and that you should sing something together.” Daveed said, lounging on the couch opposite from us. He then proceeded to say something that I couldn’t hear and Oak burst out laughing.
“Thank you Daveed for your opinion but we only love each other as friends. And that technically means that I’m right.” Chris pointed out, grinning.
“Y'all are gonna get married just as friends and fuck just as friends as well.” Daveed added and I felt my face grow red.
“I probably should-” He stood up.
“Yeah.” I replied quickly and he left.
“Our break is over. We should get back to practicing.” I mumbled and I headed to the stage where my fellow ensemble members were in place already. I got in my spot and everyone else got in their positions.
I was dancing with Chris for Helpless.
“Boy you got me helpless… look into your eyes and the skies the limit. Helpless… down for the count and I’m drownin’ in them.” I sang in harmony with the others. Chris smiled at me and we followed the choreography.
The song finished and we transitioned into Satisfied smoothly.
“Chris we’ve know each other forever and I know when you love someone and it’s obvious that you-” Lin started but stopped after looking around at everyone else who was actively participating in the conversation. He paused for a moment.
“Anyway Y/N, I told you are an amazing singer.” Chris said, turning the attention to me.
“I believe I told you to prove it.”
“In Helpless. We always dance together- Daveed stop thinking about it like that- and I know that you’re a good singer because I am always listening for your voice.” He said, not pausing despite the fact that Daveed was laughing extremely hard.
“Hey you implied that, not me.” He smiled and I shook my head, smiling a bit.
“Lin can you please talk some sense into this man?” I asked, pointing to Chris. Lin held his hands up.
“He didn’t say a word that wasn’t true.” Lin pointed out.
“Lin is a scoundrel and so it seems you.” I said, looking at Chris.
“Meet me on the dueling ground.” Chris cried in defense although he had a huge smile on his face.
“Behind Denny’s at three am. Everything is legal behind Denny’s.” I laughed which made it hard to understand what I said. I rested my head on Chris’s shoulder, trying to stop giggling. He wrapped his arm around me and I heard Daveed make a comment but he didn’t stop.
“I love you.” I whispered quietly, my laugh dying down. I couldn’t even hear myself say it but I felt him hold me closer.
“Chris, quick question but why did you feel it was nessecary to come into my apartment at three o fucking clock in the morning?”
“I waited for you behind the Denny’s.”
“You’re a dork.”
“I’m a dork who’s tired.”
“Fair. It’s my fault that you were at the Denny’s anyway.”
“I brought Daveed and Oak as well and they put it on their stories.”
“I’m sorry but I thought that it was clear that I was joking?”
“Well yeah but just in case.”
“Do you want me to make you coffee or something?”
“I had a milkshake at Denny’s, no worries.”
“You take the bed.”
“I mean I wasn’t planning on staying.”
“It’s three am and you’re staying here for the night. You look exhausted.”
“You look beautiful.”
“You need sleep.”
“It’s almost sunrise but the sky is still blue.”
“Ámame.” He said quietly, to the point I almost didn’t hear it and I looked at him surprised. He really doubted the fact that I memorized the soundtrack from In The Heights, didn’t he?
“Love me.” I smiled and he looked confused before he grabbed my hand.
“Perhaps I do.”
