Because Rafael was five when they adopted him, he had a
large say in how his room would be set up. Going to the furniture store was an
interesting experience for the entire family.
“You can choose which bed you want.” Magnus told him in
Spanish. Rafe’s eyes went wide, questioning. He looked at Alec who nodded,
guessing at what Magnus had just told the little boy, and hoisting Max further
up on his hip.
Rafe began to wonder through the aisles of beds, staring at
them in wonder. Magnus and Alec followed after him, smiling to themselves. They
went through the store like this for thirty minutes before Rafe figured out
that this was an important decision he needed to make. Suddenly his face turned
serious, and he began analyzing beds.
Alec laughed, “He’s gotten so serious.”
“Indeed. I wonder what he just realized…” Magnus replied.
“Probably that this is really happening.” Alec sighed. “He’s
had a hard life… I wonder what he makes of us…”
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
“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
“Why didn’t you answer me?!” you laughed.
“Sorry love. We were answering questions.” Conor
“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
“Night!” he shouted while running out the room.
“Idiot.” Conor muttered, turning back to the
You slid close to him and looked at the camera,
“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.

You had liked Conor since you met him. But you soon

the apartment and didn’t return for another few hours.
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.

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.
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
“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
He looked at you, a smile spreading across his face,
“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
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
“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
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.
