cat and mouse (part 2)
A/N: I’m really happy about the feedback on the last part! You guys truly seemed to like it, and that warmed my soft, little heart. I may have listened to Christmas music while writing this, but don’t come @ me. So here you go, buddies, here’s 2.7k of first date fluff with bad boy!Shawn!

The school library has never really been your favorite place. It’s not that you don’t enjoy reading, but the type of reading you do here is not typically for pleasure. It most certainly isn’t now. You’re staring into some book that you need to use in an essay, but you’re not really picking up a word of what you read. Being interrupted certainly doesn’t help either.
“This seat taken?” a voice you know very well says, and when you glance up, your suspicions are confirmed. Shawn. Without waiting for a reply, he sits down opposite you, a small table being the only thing between the two of you. “You look pretty today.”
“I’m trying to read, Mendes,” you answer, trying to play it cool, but there’s an undeniable blush on your cheeks. “What do you want?”
He squints a little. “You’ve been ignoring me,”
You sigh, mostly because he’s right - not that you’re gonna admit that. “No,”
“You sure about that?”
“It just seems that way,” Shawn continues and takes the book out of your hands, holding it himself, so that you don’t have an excuse to look away from him. “Ever since I told you that I liked you, you’ve been all distant,” You pretend to not know what he’s talking about, raising your eyebrows. “Your only reply to my text was a heart emoji! What’s that supposed to mean?” He seems so genuinely perplexed, and it’s honestly kinda adorable.
You shrug your shoulders and reach for your book in his hands. “What was I supposed to say?”
