Black Friday Suffication (D.H.)
A/N: Day 6 of Week of Thanks, I’m still into holidays, but this one is the dreaded Black Friday. I hope y’all enjoy.
You wanted to finally do Black Friday shopping. It seemed like the grown up thing to do: wake up at 4 am to be in the store by 5 am. The problem with doing Black Friday is dealing with people. The tight spaces and multiple people make you have an anxiety attack.
For the first year, though, you thought it would be under control, you had your boyfriend Damien at your side. There had been a lot of moments where you could’ve had an attack, but he was able to calm you down before anything happened.
You had made it into the store completely fine, but immediately people were crowding when you made your way to electronics. You nodded your head and just tried to continue looking around.
As you continued looking, you ended up in front of a huge deal. It was then a swarm of people surrounded you trying to get to it.
Your breathing started to increase, you looked around and couldn’t find Damien. You tried pushing your way against the crowd, but you could barely budge anybody. Your small frame didn’t let up like it did in movies.
You felt tears start to form in your eyes and your breathing increased even more with your heart rate.
You really just wanted out.
It was that moment when you felt an arm around your shoulder, and they pushed people out of the way while they guided you out of the crowd. You didn’t look up until you heard sounds of cars and honking.
Damien had found his way to you through all the chaos. He opened the back door for you and climbed in there with you because he knew you had to let it out. He held you close while kissing your forehead, making the attack sooth over easier and a little faster than it would have if you were by yourself.
He waited for you to feel completely relaxed before he kissed your lips softly and smiled at you. His smile always lit you up and made you feel completely safe and warm. You stayed in his embrace for a few minutes longer.
You were so happy to have him as your breath of fresh air.
