Honestly my taste in music has haywired so much because of Skam. Like one moment I’m listening to some English pop, then I’m listening to Norwegian rap, and then I’m listening to frikin Nelly and Tupac’s songs.

Everyone had just assumed you and John Laurens had always
hated each other. Everyone always assumed that just because you and John
bickered nonstop, you couldn’t stand each other.
In actuality, you never minded John Laurens until eighth
grade. Kindergarten through seventh had been meaningless poking fun at each
other. It was never anything truly hurtful until eighth grade.
John Laurens had gotten taller and hotter. Meanwhile, you and
your best friend, Eliza, were late bloomers.
This became his favorite topic in eighth grade to make fun
of you. You could hold your own and fired back comments usually.
“Hey, y/n” Laurens would call out to you. “Let me show you
this picture. You’ll laugh your ass off. Oh wait. You don’t have one.”
His friends would then proceed to laugh.
“Hey, Laurens” you’d retort. “Do you act like a huge dick to
cover up for the fact that you have a small one?”
His friends would yell “oohs” in return.
You’d walk away in dignity, but secretly these comments hurt
you. You only ever told Eliza and Eliza’s older sister Angelica, who was a year
older than you and Eliza. She was like an older sister to you, so when you
started high school with her, she stuck up for you. Laurens certainly never
dared to cross Angelica, but when Angelica wasn’t there (which was too often)
you two constantly bickered over anything and everything.
It got so bad, Mr. Washington wouldn’t even let you and Laurens debate against
each other in debate club anymore.
Suddenly in junior year, you began to fill out. Laurens’s
friends couldn’t keep their eyes off you. You started to stare a little longer
at Laurens. Laurens started to place himself nearer to you whenever he could.
You couldn’t help but hate him for making your life
miserable for the three years prior to this, so you continued to bicker and
mess with him.
Also in junior year, a man by the name of Charles Lee came
into your life. Sure, he was notorious for making terrible comments about
teacher and exes in the locker room, but you always thought that to be a silly
rumor. You believed the best of Charles. When he asked you to dinner and a
movie, you agreed.
You and Eliza spent all night picking out your outfit, with
Angelica offering her advice.
“Now, y/n,” she said seriously. “Promise me you won’t sleep
with him. At least wait until you to go official to sleep with him so he doesn’t
try to ghost you.”
You rolled your eyes.
“I promise, Angie,” you gave her an endearing, yet loving smile.
The night went perfectly. Charles was a perfect gentleman.
As soon as you got home, you ran next door, to Eliza’s house and stayed up all
night squealing over it.
You stayed true to your promise to Angelica, though, which led
to you and Charles making things official after two dates.
Two days after you two made it official, a steaming Laurens
came up to you after school.
“Lee? Really? You’re dating Lee?” he asked incredulously.
“Yeah, I’m really dating Lee,” you answered in a sarcastic
“He’s not a good guy, y/n. He says terrible things about all
the girls he hooks up with. He doesn’t like you like that. He only wants to
hook up with you,” John warned.
“Pardon?” you narrowed your eyes. “That’s not true. We’re
“Trust me. Do you think anyone, especially Lee, looked at
you like that before you got hot? He just thinks you’re hot now. So does
everyone else. He just wants to be the first to get to you,” John yelled,
stepping closer to you.
“Excuse me? So what, he didn’t notice me before. I’m hot
now, but he also noticed my personality,” you matched his tone and stepped so
you were toe to toe.
“He’s just going to hurt you,” John yelled.
“Well since when do you care? Last I checked, we hated each
other,” you yelled, causing Laurens to take a breath and a step back.
“I just…I don’t want to see you get hurt,” John walked away,
leaving you confused.
The next day nothing changed.
You and Lee had lasted a full year. Every time you were with
Charles in the hallway and saw Laurens, you made sure to give him a pointed
At the beginning of your senior year, you dumped Lee. He had
been distant, and you decided to keep things light and fun for your senior
Lee had other ideas. After calling and texting you nonstop
for a week, he decided to start trashing you to all his friends.
The school already knew that you had dumped him, but he told
all his friends rumors they promptly spread. According to Lee, you had begged
for him back (a rumor you quickly stomped away by showing Lee’s clingy texts to
anyone who asked). You were also terrible in bed, clingy, and moody (all these
rumors were also quickly demolished by your screenshots of old texts).
Soon enough, the rumors diminished. You couldn’t help but
notice that Laurens was missing a few days after the rumors stopped.
A few months later you graduated, with a few pokes of fun at
Laurens. You thought you’d never see him again, a party right before you left
for college in August.
He wasn’t so bad lately. You two were indifferent. You’d
both grown up and weren’t as petty any more.
At that party, you saw Laurens. You were confused when he
marched right over to you. Your lips began to form a question, but Laurens
slammed his soft lips into yours. Slowly, butterflies you hadn’t known had
existed, erupted in your stomach. However, Laurens pulled back once he realized
where he was. He tensed and stammered for a moment.
“Meet me by the bench in the gardens in ten,” he disappeared
into the crowd.
You were left dazed and confused. You hadn’t realized it,
but somewhere along the way, you’d caught feelings for John. You smiled lightly
and touched your lips softly.
You found Eliza talking to Hamilton, still crushing ever so
helplessly on him.
“They’re so happy. I’m glad I pushed them into talking to
each other,” a familiar voice smiled.
“Angelica!” you squealed. “I thought you had to leave early.”
“I decided to come back to help you and Eliza move into your
dorm at Columbia together,” she smiled. “Well, you look happy.”
“Well… A certain boy might have just kissed me,” you smiled.
“Uh huh. What would his name be?” A small smile graced Angelica’s
“John” you mumbled.
Angelica choked on her drink.
“John Laurens? The man you hated?” she asked.
“Yeah well, time changes people,” you smiled.
“Y/n…you realize it’s only been a month,” Angelica giggled. “But
if he makes you happy, enjoy yourself.”
You just smiled brightly.
The ten minutes passed, quickly. You slipped outside, your
heart starting to pound.
You stood next to the bench and squinted your eyes trying to
When you spotted him, your heart sank.
There he stood, with his three friends behind him.
“Dude, I told you she’d come,” Hamilton whispered, giggling.
They were all giggling. John was standing in the middle stifling at laugh,
while making direct eye contact with you.
Your vision blurred with tears. You felt like an idiot. Of
course John Laurens didn’t like you. He hated you. You hated him.
You hated John Laurens.
Four years later, you had long since forgotten John Laurens.
Yes, you two went to the same University, lived in the same
dorm, and most of your friends were mutual, but you didn’t care. You ignored
him until the hate and butterflies left. You never forgave him, but you couldn’t
dwell on it either.
Eliza had finally talked to Hamilton enough to marry him.
The two of you had gotten close, but avoided speaking of that night.
Hamilton and his friends (excluding Laurens) weren’t as bad
as you thought. You often hung out even. Both of you knew they were forgiven for
that night without saying anything.
“So y/n, Alex and I want to ask you something” you smiled at
the happily engaged couple.
“Okay, shoot,” you smiled.
“Will you be my maid of honor?” she asked excited.
“Of course!” you screamed. “I’m so honored.”
The wedding planning went quickly. It was finally the night
of the rehearsal dinner.
“Excuse me?” a deep, oddly familiar voice asked. “Are you
the maid of hon-” he stopped abruptly when he saw your face.
“Laurens, hi” you smiled. “I’m the maid of honor. You must
be the best man.”
“Yeah,” he laughed awkwardly.
You glance over at Eliza, asking for help. She smiled at you
The dinner went by awkwardly and quickly. Angelica was rehearsing
her speech for the next night to you, when John approached you.
“Listen, y/n. Can we talk?” John asked.
You looked at Angelica, pleadingly.
“You need to talk to him,” Angelica whispered to you.
“Fine,” you quipped. “Talk.” You stood still in front of
“Look that night. I was just scared. You were so pretty and
I just couldn’t control myself. I crushed on you for so long that I just. I don’t
know. The kiss was real. But I wasn’t supposed to love you. So, I panicked and
told my friends that I told you to meet me here for a copy of my application
essay because we kept arguing who’s was better. They laughed because they
couldn’t believe you were that dedicated to being right. I’m so sorry. I will
always regret ruining our chances at falling in love,” Laurens said, looking
“When did you start having feelings for me?” you asked.
“In eleventh grade, when I saw you with Lee. Suddenly all
the reasons I hated you, became the reasons I loved you. I tried to repress the feelings. I did well,
but then you two broke up. He kept spreading rumors in the locker room, which I
warned you about. I kept myself at bay, but then he started showing those
asshole friends of his pictures of you and I just couldn’t let that slide. I
punched him. I couldn’t let him get away with that,” he finished meeting your
“Oh John,” you marveled at his sparkling eyes. “You did that
He nodded, looking down.
“Well, that day you kissed me I realized, I’ve always loved
you.” You tilted his head to meet your gaze. “And I’ve just realized, I still
“How? After all I’ve done?” John asked.
“Time changes people.” You smiled. “If you kiss me, promise
not to run away?” you asked.
“Promise.” He smiled.
With that, your lips crashed together, and the butterflies
you’d repressed for years came fluttering back.
