Summary- one slip up on camera is all it takes for two people to admit feelings
You had just returned from a weekend in Brighton. You had filmed videos with Zoe and Alfie and they were kind enough to extend your stay for the entire weekend. You walked through the door of the apartment you shared with Jack, Josh and Conor; it was too quiet.
“Boys? I’m home.” You called out.
“Hello? Anyone home?” you yelled.
You began to walk dwn the corridor that led to the bedrooms.
“Jack?” you said while opening his door. Empty.
You closed his door and walked to Josh’s door, “Josh?” Empty. You shut his door as well and walked to the last room.
“Con?” you said while opening the door.
“Hey!” they all shouted. They were all crowded around Connors laptop.
“Why didn’t you answer me?!” you laughed.
“Sorry love. We were answering questions.” Conor answered.
“Questions? Are you filming a Q&A?” you asked sitting on his bed.
“No, a livestream,” Josh answered. “It was fun guys, but I have to shower.” He said towards the camera, then got up and left.
“I better leave too. It’s late.” Jack said quickly.
“Late? It’s only half past 8,” you gave him a weird look.
“Night!” he shouted while running out the room.
“Idiot.” Conor muttered, turning back to the computer.
You slid close to him and looked at the camera, “Shall we?”
“Sure,” he smiled.
“Okay, let’s look at what you guys want to know.” You said reading the comments. They weren’t what you had expected.
Y/S/N! I ship it so much!
They’d be so cute together
The boys left so they can finally admit they’re feelings!
Y/n and Conor!
conor so likes her
You had liked Conor since you met him. But you soon learned that he didn’t return the feelings.
“Y/n these are my roommates, Conor and Jack.” Josh, your longtime best friend said.
“Hi! It’s so glad to finally meet you! I’ve heard so much about you.” You said hugging jack.
“I wish I could say the same thing,” Jack laughed, hugging you back.
You went to hug Conor but he stepped back, “I have to go grab something.” he left the apartment and didn’t return for another few hours.
Once he came back you two began talking and clicked.You two never brought up the awkward first meeting. He quickly became your best second friend, after Josh of course. You thought you might actually have a chance with Conor.
Then a few weeks after that you realized how many girls he brought home, a new one every night, or just about.
That wasn’t what made you completely bottle up your feelings. One night at the club he said something that broke her heart.
You had come back with a round of shots and heard him say, “Y/n is like a sister to me, nothing more, nothing less.”
After that you shoved your feelings so far down, sometimes you forgot you had them. But that was rare.
“Where was Y/n earlier?” you read aloud. “I was in Brighton hanging with two really good friends.” You sent the camera a wink and the comments blew up with ‘Zalfie’ comments.
“How long have you known each other?” Conor read. “Uh…” he looked at you, “almost a year and a half.”
“Yeah. The 18 month mark is on the 6th of June, I believe.” You said giggling, “Don’t ask why I know that.”
“Who is y/n’s celebrity crush?”
“Conor Maynard of course.” Conor laughed giving his signature goofy look.
“It’s a tie between Dylan O’Brien and…” Conor glared at you. “And Conor of course!” you finished, giving him a big hug. And a small kiss on the cheek. You immediately back up, realizing that it was a live video, not something you could later edit out.
“Uh…” you both said.
“Well that’s it for tonight! Thanks for watching, love you guys so much.” Conor said shutting his laptop.
You stood up, “I’m sorry.” You walked towards the door but a hand stopped you from opening it.
“Don’t be.” He whispered into your ear.
“Conor, stop.” You turner around, both of his arms were up by your head.
“What’s wrong?” he sighed, dropping his arms.
“This can’t happen. I don’t want a pity kiss.”
“Pity kiss? What are you on about?” Conor gave you a weird look.
“I know how you feel about me! I’m a sister to you, nothing more, and nothing less. You’re words exactly!” You lightly shouted.
“Is that what you think?” he stepped back, rubbing the back of his neck.
“You said it.”
“Y/n I’ve been crushing on you since Josh moved in. He never shut up about you. You sounded perfect. Then I saw you, and I was whipped. But the way you hugged Jack made it clear that I never had a chance.” He sighed, sitting on the side of his bed.
You walked and sat next to him, “Conor Paul Maynard, you are the most oblivious boy I have ever met. I’ve liked you since that night on the couch where we played 20 questions and watched 21 Jump Street.” You smiled.
He looked at you, a smile spreading across his face, “Really?”
“Yes really!” you laughed, leaning closer to the beautiful boy next to you. “Now are you gonna kiss me or what?”
He closed the space between you two. You put your hands on his cheek, snaking them around his neck to his hair. He put his on your waist.
When he pulled away you frowned. You never wanted that to end. You went in for another kiss when his door flung open,
“He bloody did it! He kissed her!” Josh shouted.
“That’s my boy! Mikey owes me 10 pounds!” Jacks yelled.
“Get out!” Conor shouted, standing up and pushing out the door.
“Sorry ‘bout that.” He shyly smiled.
“It’s okay.” You stood up and backed him up against his door. “Now kiss me again.”
“Gladly.” He smiled as he once again put his lips on yours.
You didn’t want to pull away. So you didn’t. You ended the night cuddled on Conor’s bed watching a movie.
Neither of you said it, but you knew that this night was only the beginning of many more to come. And that was perfectly okay for both of you.
