perksofbeingpeeta gave me a drabble challenge: introverted peeta, outgoing katniss. Introvert!Peeta’s head is a very teenage angsty place and I loved getting to write this. Thank you for the creative idea!!
I studied myself in the mirror. I didn’t look like I usually
did, I let Delany get me ready and man did I look hot. My legs looked longer in
my heels and short dress, my eyes popped with the help of a nice Smokey eye,
and the red lipstick looked amazing with my complexion. After Delany’s little
pep talk I decided that I wanted to slay tonight. I wanted to show Derek what
he could have if he were mine. “Y/N, you look so hot and I’m proud of my
creation.” She says with a big smile on her face. “Awh, thanks Lany and I also
want to thank you for helping me out.” I said giving her a hug. “Anyways, are you
ready to go, the boys are waiting for us outside.” She said peeking out the
window. I mutter a yes as we both walk out of the bus. I keep my head down, nervous
to see the boy’s reaction to how I look. I look up and see all eyes on me. “What
are you guys staring at?” I ask feeling insecure. “Damn, lil mama you look bomb
as fuck!” Nate says with a smile. I gave him a shy smile back and looked to
the right of him, just to see a lip biting Derek. My heart melted at the sight
of him. He put his hand out towards me signaling for me to grab onto it. The
second I grabbed his hand he pulled me into his embrace his arms snaking around
me. “Baby you look so good.” He whispered in my ear. “Thank you Derek.” I said
pulling away from him. I think that I am going to try and ignore him for the night. I want him to chase me tonight. I
want HIM to lust over ME for once. After a 10-minute ride to the club we all
hopped out, ready to turn up. The first thing I did when I got there is head
straight to the bar. “What would you like sweetheart.” Says the very handsome
bar tender. “Can I get 3 shots of vodka, please?” I say with a smile. As soon
as he gave me the shots I downed them within a 5 second time period. After
ordering 3 more everyone started looking really good. I looked over to see
another chick on Derek. “Two can play this game.” I whisper to myself. I head
to the dance floor and start dancing on a random guy. He grabs my hips as I start
grinding my hips. I look over at Derek and he looks hella pissed. I make eye
contact with him and bite my lip. He pushes the random chick off of him and
makes his way over to me. “I got it from here, bro” He said to the guy pulling
me away from him. The guy just scoffs and walks away with an attitude. “Derek,
what the hell?” I say acting like I was mad even though I was in the happiest
mood. “He was touching what is mine.” He says grabbing my ass. “Since when have
I been yours, Derek.” I say acting like the fact that his hands rubbing my butt
didn’t affect me in any way. “Oh please, Y/n you know you have always been mine,
whenever I come around you blush, or when I bring a girl around your mood changes,
and not for the better, either, I know you want it baby.” He said kissing my neck. “Derek, you don’t understand,
I remember when I first met you I was just an 11-year-old girl and I thought
that it was just a tiny crush, but no you had to be a little shit and make me
fall for you even more, I remember when I turned 15 and I was hanging out with
you and Delany, Delany got up to use the bathroom and you grabbed my face and
kissed me, that’s when I knew I was in love with you, I had to sit back and
watch the person that I loved be with everyone except for me, Derek I am always
going to be yours no matter what.” I say letting all of my feelings spill out
of my mouth. “Y/N, baby I’m not good for you.” He said pissing me off. “I just
spilled my feelings out to you and you’re going to sit here and tell me you aren’t
good for me, Fuck you man!” I said pulling myself out of his grip running
outside. I get outside and at this point tears are flowing. I should’ve just
kept my mouth shut. I hear the doors of the club open and see Derek walking
towards me. “Y/N…” He said walking towards me. “I like you a lot, but you know
how I am, I know that I’m going to fuck up, I care about you too much to hurt
you.” He said, looking into my eyes. “Okay, Derek.” I said giving up on trying
with him. “Y/N, baby don’t act like that.” He said trying to grab my hand. “No,
Derek I will act however I want, all of this was just pointless.” I say,
looking away from him. “What do you mean
all of this was pointless, Y/N?” He asks in confusion. “I mean trying to
impress you all these years, I’ve tried and tried but you still don’t want me.”
I say my eyes filling with tears all over again. He placed his palm on my cheek
and rubbed his thumb over my lip. “Baby.” He whispered. He leaned in slowly and
placed his lips on mine. Woah I
thought in my head. I slowly kissed back, after a while he pulled away. “Wow,
that was amazing.” He said smiling showing me his perfect teeth and amazing
dimple. “I wanna try” He said confusing
me. “Huh?” I say still baffled from that amazing kiss. “Let’s be together, Y/N.”
He said looking into my eyes. “You’re just saying that because you feel bad.” I
said frowning. “No, I’m saying it because I mean it, you make me happy and
everything is brighter when you’re around.” He says pecking my lips. “Okay.” I
said smiling. He took out his phone and called us an uber. After he was done on
the phone he turned to me and said “don’t you think it’s funny?” He asked “What?”
I responded with a confused face. “How long we waited for this.” He said
looking at me. “10 years in the making.” I said leaning up and pecking his nice
lips, that were now all mine. Those 10
years turned out to be worth it.
Summary: You join 5 Seconds of Summer because they’re tired of being called a boy band, and Calum falls in love with you. But, he’s not sure how to tell you.
Requested by: @mikeyroxy (I know I said I’d post this tomorrow night, but I just couldn’t wait so hear it is!)
You enter the meeting room, where you’re going to meet your soon-to-be new band mates. “(Y/N), it’s nice to see you again.” The manager says. You smile and wave at him. “Wait, this is our new band member?” Ashton asks. The manager nods. “But… But she’s a chick!” Calum says, looking at you. You roll your eyes. “A chick that can play the bass better than you ever will.” You say. Calum smirks a little. “You guys said you were tired of being called a boy band, so we got you a girl.” The manager says. “We can’t have a girl in the band.” Luke says. “If she’s as hot as this one, we can.” Calum says. You laugh and he smiles. “Then it’s settled. Welcome to the band, (Y/N).” Michael says, shrugging. You smile. “Thanks, guys.”
Over the next three months, a lot happens. You go on tour with the boys, get used to their endless flirting, feel comfortable eating around them, and become best friends with them. Calum and you get especially close. You tell him everything, and your bass duets are the best. Calum and you have a movie night on the bus every Friday night.
“Hey, guys.” You say, walking onto the bus. Michael runs past you naked, which is nothing new. Luke and Ashton are eating cereal on the couch, but Calum is nowhere to be found.
“Where’s Cal?” You ask. Luke points back to Calum’s bunk, and you walk back. He’s texting someone. “Who’s got your attention?” You ask, smiling. Calum chuckles at you. “Nobody special.” He says. “We still doing movie night?” You ask, your eyes hopeful. Calum bites his lip. “I don’t think we should do movie night anymore, (Y/N).” He says. “What?” You ask, confused. “I just… Need to distance myself from you for a little while.” He admits. Tears begin to blur your vision, but you blink them away and run off of the bus, passing a very confused Luke and Ashton. You run to the gas station the bus is parked at for the night and walk inside. The cashier smiles at you, but frowns when she sees your tears. You’re grabbing snacks when Luke walks into the store.
“Babe, what’s going on?” He asks. The guys always called you that, so it didn’t bother you anymore. “Nothing. Just leave me alone, please.” You say, your voice cracking. “What did Cal say to you?” Luke asks. You tell Luke everything that happened. Luke groans. “He’s such a fucking idiot.” He mutters. Luke wraps you into a hug. “Come back to the bus, the other boys and I will have a movie night with you. Hell, you could probably talk Michael into watching a chick flick with you.” Luke says. You giggle and follow him back onto the bus. A concerned Ashton stands up when you guys walk back in. “What the fuck is going on? You ran out crying and Calum punched a goddamn hole in the game room wall.” Ashton says. Luke explains for you, and Ashton rolls his eyes. “God damn you, Calum.” He mutters. That night, Calum doesn’t come back out of the game room. Michael, Ashton, and Luke watch three movies with you that night before you go to sleep.
•A Week Later•
You walk into the stage for rehearsals with your bass, but stop when you see that it’s just you and Calum.
“They late again?” You ask. Calum nods. You start tuning your bass, and feel Calum staring at you. “Stop staring, Calum.” You mutter. “We need to talk, (Y/N).” He says. “Why? You’ve been avoiding me for a whole week. What makes you wanna talk now?” You snap. Calum sighs. “I miss you.” He admits.
“You miss me? Well, Calum, that’s your own fucking fault because it was your idea to-”
“I fucking love you, okay?!”
“Put some distance between- Wait, what did you just say?”
Calum chuckles, shaking his head at you. “I love you, (Y/N). I just… didn’t know how to tell you. That’s why I tried putting distance between us. I knew that you would never go for me, so I tried to get over you. But, the truth is, I’ve tried to stop thinking about you, but I can’t.” He says. You walk over to him. “Are you fucking with me, Hood?” You ask, grabbing him by his t-shirt. “Not about this.” He says. You smile and yank his head down to yours. “Then kiss me, you fucking idiot.” You whisper. Calum grins. “Gladly.” He murmurs. He kisses you softly, his lips brushing against yours lightly. His lips are soft and smooth against yours.
“Alright, let’s get this rehearsal start- Oh. My bad.” Luke says, walking onto the stage with Ashton and Michael. You and Calum pull away, laughing. “Are you guys a thing now?” Michael asks. You look at Calum, who smiles at you. “Yeah… Yeah, we are.” You say happily. “Fucking finally!” Ashton yells, causing everyone to laugh.
