You wake up the next morning cuddled up next to Steve, with his arm draped over you protectively. You roll over and see he is already awake, stroking your arm comfortingly. He looks down when he notices you’re awake and smiles down at you, kissing your cheek.
“I have to go home and shower and I’ll be back here in a while to pick you up for school.” he said softly. You nod and he starts to pull himself out of bed. You whine and reach out your hand. He raises his eyebrows and leans back down to you. You run a hand through his messy bed head and knot your fingers in his hair. “Hey, babe you know I have to go.” he whispers.
“Uh huh,” you reply and pull his lips down to yours. He groans against your mouth as he forces himself to pull away and climb back out your window. You lay in bed for a few moments longer and then pull yourself out of bed and into the shower.
“Oh shit, I think I left my Chemistry textbook in my locker.” Steve mutters as the two of you walk to his car.
“Go ahead and go get it, babe, I’ll wait here.” You look down at your hands intertwined between your two bodies. Steve had not left your side all day and there had been no problems so what were five minutes alone?
“No, it’s okay, I’ll just do the homework tomorrow at lunch.” he says quickly.
“Go and get it, Steve, I’ll be fine for the few minutes it’ll take you to go run and get it.” You laugh nervously. He scans the scene around his car, deems it safe and lets go of your hand. He declares that he will be back before you know it and runs back the way you two had come. You set your bag down and lean against his car and fiddle with your fingers nervously. You hoped it wasn’t obvious how scared you were.
Your fear comes to life as you see that familiar mop of dangerous ringlets start to approach you, a halo of cigarette smoke wafting around them. Steve’s words replay in your head, “Oh my god, I am dating a badass,” and you stand a little taller, feeling more confident. However, this feeling is immediately squashed when Billy stands over you, at least a head taller.
“You missed our date, sweetheart, I thought we had a deal. You give me what I want and I spare your boyfriend his dignity.” He sneers, blowing smoke in your face, causing you to gag.
You wave it away and glare at him, “Fuck off, Billy. I’m dating Steve and I want nothing to do with you, so please save yourself the dignity and get the hell out of here.”
Billy leans in closer to you and moves your hair as he did yesterday. You are frozen in fear and unable to push his hand off. “Such a pretty little mark, soon I will leave more and people will know that you have been marked as mine.” You suck in a breath as he leans closer, the feeling of his warmth breath on your neck causing goosebumps to rise. Then it was gone, Steve stood in front of you, the anger in his face all too obvious. Steve cups your cheek in a sweet gesture and then turns back to face Billy who was regaining his balance.
“Get away from her, Billy. You sick son of a bitch, what kind of man goes after another guy’s girl?” Steve snarls at him. Billy steps closer and starts smiling.
“Is this the King Steve I’ve been waiting so long for? Is this him? Well, it’s about damn time, don’t you think?” And with that he grabs Steve’s jacket in his large fists and throws him to the side, his path to you clear once again. You squeal as he quickly pins you to the side of Steve’s car and snatches your wrist in his hand and rolls up your sleeve. Steve is on his feet once more and hovers over the both of you, unsure of what to do that would not put you in harm’s way.
“Look at these pretty marks I gave her,” he cackles his delight, shoving your arm towards Steve.
“Get off of her, man. You wanna fight me that’s fine but leave her out of this.” Steve almost pleads, his eyes huge with concern, trying to catch yours which are squeezed shut.
“Oh, but I haven’t showed you my favorite,” Billy grips your chin between his strong fingers and tilts your neck so Steve can see the ugly mark there. “I can’t believe how soft her skin is, what about you Harrington? She must still be innocent. Is that it?” he asks turning back to you. “Can Harrington not give it to you? I could, you know, I could give you what you want.” You open your eyes and spit in Billy’s face. This enrages him and with your chin still captured in his hand, he raises his second hand but you never feel the strike. In fact, Billy’s whole body weight is removed from you. You open your eyes again and see a terrible sight in front of you.
Steve and Billy are rolling around on the ground together, landing blows wherever they can reach. You shriek and tell them to stop. “Stop! Stop! Please!” Both boys’ faces are bloody and fists are flying everywhere. Suddenly, Billy lands a blow to Steve’s throat and he chokes, causing him to hesitate his next punch. Billy takes the upper hand and start hitting as hard and as quickly as he can and you are screaming. “Billy, get the fuck off of him, you’re gonna kill him!”
You panic and look around frantically and spot Steve’s abandoned textbook on the ground. You snatch it up quickly and with all your strength, bring the thick book down on top of Billy’s head. He drops quickly and Steve rolls on top of him and brings a couple more final punches to his face, making sure he won’t retaliate, threatening as he does so, “If you ever talk to her, or come close to her, or so much as breathe the same air as her, I swear to God that I will end your life, Billy Hargrove. You’re a disgrace, you sick bastard!”
He stumbles off of him and tries to put his feet under him. He wobbles and you immediately reach out and wrap an arm around his waist, encouraging him to lean on you. “C’mon, let’s get you in the car.” you whisper and bring him around to the passenger side, despite his protests. You pull open the door and he practically falls into the seat. Once you are positive he is settled you jog around the the driver side and see Billy start to sit up. You can’t help yourself and kick him straight in the groin and then jump into Steve’s car, speeding away quickly.
You pulled up in front of your house and quickly open the passenger side door and see Steve passed out in the seat. You start to panic and lean down next to him, attempting to shake him awake. “Steve, baby, please, please wake up!” You stroke his hair, coating your fingers in blood, but you hardly care. Getting desperate, tears start making their way down your cheeks and you are shaking him roughly. “Please, wake up you stupid idiot. You can’t do this right now, I owe you so much, please! Wake UP!” you scream and he groans pitifully as he is pulled back into consciousness.
“Oh my god.” you whisper as you kiss his lips to which he groans louder due to pain. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”
He opens those beautiful eyes and tries to smile, though it comes out more as a grimace. “I’m awake, baby, I’m here.”
“Can you stand?” you inquire, grabbing fistfuls of his jacket and start to haul him to his feet. He nods and tries to take a step and he leans on you so heavily, you almost fall over. You grit your teeth and gather all your anger and use it as power to drag him across your lawn and all the way up the stairs. Thankfully, neither of your parents were home, that would have take a lot of explaining that you did not have time for at the moment.
You sit him down on the toilet and demand he stay put until you come back with the first aid kit. You quickly locate it in your parent’s bathroom and step back into your own bathroom. When you step in, you see Steve has stripped off his bloodstained shirt. You suck in a breath and try to avoid staring at him for too long.
After ten minutes the majority of the blood coated on his body is gone and the cuts show through. He is the first to speak. “(Y/N), I’m sorry, I didn’t mean for that to happen, I shouldn’t have left you.” He says, closing his eyes. “I just didn’t want to be too protective and I thought you would be okay and god, if I hadn’t gotten there when I did-” he was cut off by you gently placing your finger to his lips.
“Steve, don’t apologize, there was no way you could have been able to predict that was going to happen. Thank you for everything, I love you.” you whisper. He smiles and pulls you closer, resting his head on your chest. After a while, he raises his head and asks, “All done, Doctor (Y/N)?”
“I think so,” you say looking at his bandaged face.
“Wait, you need to kiss them all better,” he pouts, “especially this one!” He pointed out his split lip, to which you rolled your eyes and kissed his outstretched lips. Once you pull away, he speaks again, “Hey, babe, I don’t know if I was hallucinating when I was in the car, but did you kick him in the balls?”
“Hell yeah I did, for you babe.”
“What did I tell you? A badass.” You laugh and look lovingly at Steve and place another kiss on a bandage on his cheek.
“C’mon you, let’s get that fabulous hair washed and then we can go lay down in my room.”
“Anything for you.”
Hope you guys like the second part! Let me know if you want more with King Steve!
