AU: Uni Shawn - Midterms
Your name: submit What is this?
“I know I failed it,” You remark to your friend as the two of you walk across campus together. You had gotten dinner together after your exam, and you just finished telling her about how badly it went.
“I’m sure it wasn’t as bad as you think,” She tells you, trying to be a good friend by making you feel better, but this time its not working. You don’t think you’ve ever felt worse coming out of an exam than you did that one, and that’s saying a lot. You try not to think about it, knowing that it won’t change anything, but you still feel like there is a black cloud following you around now.
When you reach the library, you say goodbye to her since she still has to study, but you just want to go back to your apartment. Once you’re back, you take a shower, hoping to wash away the sadness, but it doesn’t help much. An hour later, you’re sitting on your bedroom floor, just sitting. John Mayer is playing through your phone’s speaker from Spotify, and you’re staring blankly at your ceiling. The only good thing about that exam is that it was your last one for a while. So you only have regular assignments and homework throughout the rest of this week, but even that knowledge can’t make you feel better after that disaster of a midterm.
You hear a knock sound on your front door, but you don’t even move from your spot on the floor. Your roommate, who was studying in the living room, opens the door, and you hear her greet Shawn. You wrack your brain trying to figure out if the two of you had plans for the night, but you don’t come up with anything. A few seconds later, he appears in the doorway of your bedroom, and you stand to greet him. Neither of you exchange words because he seems to know that you’re sad even though you haven’t told him. He kisses you lightly on the forehead, and you move so you can bury your face in his chest. His arms wrap around you comfortingly.
