"real smooth tripping over air"
I, uh, kinda got carried away with this one… Just a tad.
(Prinxiety high school! au, 899 words) One of the least popular kids in the school has a major crush on the badass guy that everyone looks up to.
I don’t think there are any warnings besides swearing and mentions of violence, but just let me know if there are!
“Roman, you’ve been staring at Virgil for five minutes. You’re going to end up creeping him out,” Logan commented, raising an eyebrow at his friend. Roman shook his head and tore his eyes away from the leather jacket-wearing junior across the lunchroom.
“Shut up, Lo. Not everyone can easily gain a boyfriend,” he snarked, scowling at Patton and Logan’s intertwined hands.
“Now, Roman, that’s no reason to be angry. We just want to protect you from… You know…” Patton’s words trailed off as he grimaced. Sending one “bad look,” no matter if its intention was harmless, at Virgil could and would end up with you having at the very least a black eye.
“I know, but just look at him! He’s so handsome!” Roman cast another gaze at Virgil, who was sitting alone at his lunch table listening to music. Everyone at the school was too intimidated by him to even dare try and sit near him, let alone at the same table. Yet they all thought he was the coolest guy on the planet. Girls, guys, and nonbinary kids alike were all drooling over him, bending at his every whim, even after he’d made it very clear that he was only interested in guys. Of course, he payed them no attention, preferring to be alone.
