Of Coffees in Summer ( COLE X READER)
REQUEST: @desicookie - Hey Can you write an imagine where the reader works at a coffee shop, near the riverdale shooting destination and cole comes their frequently. Because he loves seeing the reader, also something where the reader loves talking to cole whenever he comes?
A/N: Basically what @desicookie requested, with a little more add-ons. I’ve also mentioned about the recent clash between Cole and the street musician in the story because I’m a daredevil ;) jk.. Just felt like it. ALSO a Harry Styles’ concert to spice things up a bit ! :)Hope you like it x Requests are still open.
Working at the coffee shop for 4 hours every weekday wasn’t quite how you planned your summer. Ever since Sumer break commenced, you’ve been working here at the coffee shop. Your summer goal was to earn enough money to buy tickets for the upcoming Harry Styles concert. The tickets go on sale in just two weeks and you’re busting your ass to buy the tickets. Your dad already agreed to pay half of it but since it’s VIP seats you’re seeking, you’re still in need of a lot of money.
“(Y/n), there he comes again,” your co-worker/friend Cara whispers into your ear.
Triing, in walks Cole Sprouse. Yeap, ½ of the famous Sprouse twins. He has been coming here for quite a while now ever since his show Riverdale got the permit to shoot some few episodes just few blocks away from the coffee shop.
Since it’s a really small secluded neighbourhood, no one has ever noticed him or approached him so far in the coffee shop. Maybe that’s why he likes coming here.
Sure, when he first came to the coffee shop, which was 3 days back, you and Cara couldn’t stop fangirling like 12 year olds but Greg, your boss, told you that if you couldn’t keep it together he would have to fire both you and Cara. Ever since then, you and Cara have been keeping your cool.
Today Cole looked even more frustrated than usual. He had a very angry look on his face when he walked in. He took the seat near the counter, he seems to have a lot on his mind. Neither you nor Cara want to approach him since he does look quite aggravated.
“It’s your turn today,” she pushes you.
You roll back, “No, no, I can’t take his order, look at his face!”
“(Y/N), you just have to-“ she pushes you really far and really close to Cole Sprouse. Ugh, she is so dead.
“Um, everything okay?” you try to ease the tension,
He looks up at you with a stone-cold face.
Scared, you immediately utter, ”Sorry, I didn’t mean to pry. I’ll come to take your order later-“
He sighs,”Uh, I’m sorry,” He rubs his eyes,”I just have a lot on my mind,”
Okay.. you don’t know what to respond since this is your first actual conversation with Cole, other than him ordering an Americano every other day.
“Do you know the musician singing outside?” he point towards a certain lady with a guitar on the street.
You’ve seen her before but you don’t really know her.
You shake your head in response for a ‘no’.
“Nevermind. So anyway, she won’t stop playing her music and now we can’t shoot even a single scene because she won’t budge. We’ve already got the permit to shoot here but she-“
Cole trails off as he notices the blank look on your face since you have absolutely no idea what he’s talking about.
He snickers,”My goodness, you have no idea what I’m talking about”
You’re embarrassed,”I’m sorry. Just here to take your order,”
Cole smiles,”Oh about that, I’ll an Irish coffee today,”
Hmmm, interesting choice.
“Is there something wrong?” he questions
“I saw your face change when I said Irish coffee”
You snicker, ”Ah, sorry. It’s just that you’ve only ordered Americano so far. I thought you-“
“Wait, you’ve taken my orders before?”
He looks really surprised,”Since when?”
“Since three days back, I’ve taken two orders so far, excluding this one…not that I’ve been counting,” you trail off.
He chuckles,”Interesing. Why have’t I noticed you before?”
You quietly bring yourself closer to his ears and whisper,”I forgot to wear my invisbilty cloak today”
Cole laughs in response, “Good one,”
“One Irish Coffee coming right up,” you smile and take your leave.
“Wait,….” He must’ve realized only now that he hasn’t asked your name yet.
“(Y/n). My name is (Y/n),”
“So tell me, Miss (Y/n), is the Irish coffee any good?”
“Um, I’ve never tried it actually,”
“Ah! Good because you’re trying one now with me,”
“I possibly c-can’t..” you stutter, I mean, C’mon Cole Sprouse just asked you to have coffee with him.
“Of course she can!” Cara peeks in from behind taking off your apron,”I’ll cover. You’re welcome,” She smiles sweetly at Cole and leaves.
Cara, I swear.
Cole chuckles,”You can sit,”
You take the sit across him nervously.
“So, you like working here?” Cole attempts to start a conversation.
You sigh and roll your eyes, ”Don’t even get me started! I’m only doing this because I really want to go to this Harry Styles concert which is due in only few weeks. You know Harry Styles, right? The gorgeous curly haired lad from One Direction. Oh my gosh, I’ve never been to any One direction concert, ever. So when I heard that Harry was going to do a concert in this little town I was like ‘Oh my gosh, if I don’t-“
Cara intervenes with two cups of Irish coffee.
“Thanks,Cara” you take a huge sip of the coffee,”Anyway,as I was saying…”
You pause yourself because you’re not sure if Cole is even listening anymore. You wish you had some control over that mouth of yours but c’mon, when it’s Harry Styles, your mouth runs as fast as a bullet train.
“Why’d you stop?”
“I-I-I’m sorry, I thought I was boring you,” you take another sip,”Gosh, I do talk so much, don’t I?”
Cole laughs. He then rests his head on his hand as he smiles brightly and says, “Go on, I like listening to you,”
“Yay,” you clap your hands, before excitedly taking Cole Sprouse on your fangirl journey .
Two irish coffee and few hours later, Cole had to leave. He was more humble than you thought he would be. You spent the entire evening talking to him about Harry Styles while he filled you in about the commotion with the musician earlier.
You walked him out of the coffee shop.
“Guess I’ll be seeing you around then,” Cole grins before leaving.
Ever since that blissful evening where you and Cole bonded over Harry Styles, he started coming more often. Sometimes, even twice a day!
Cara was kind enough to cover for you whenever he came over so that you could have some alone time with Cole.
Some days, he would tell you stories about the set while you tell him about your best friends. Other days, you would just sit in a comfortable silence while he goes through his scripts and you work on the accounts.
Soon, awkward goodnight waves turned into goodnight hugs. Cole was such an easy person to get along with, he was as beautiful on the inside as he was on the outside.
Cole’s schedule kept getting more hectic as days went by but he always made sure to stop by at the coffee shop. Sometimes he’d come in as late as 8pm! But since you lived quite nearby and you knew he would come, you always stayed open for him.
Tonight was just as ordinary as any other night. Cole dropped in tonight as well. You talked about your high school while Cole shared his love for animals!
It’s always a sad song when he has to leave. You’re not sure since when you developed such a liking for Cole and his coffee but anyway-
“Goodnight, (y/n)” Cole smiled, pulling you in for a hug . Before breaking the hug, he placed a small peck on your cheek.
A small peck. An infintesmally small peck but a peck nevertheless.
He chuckled at how red you turned at his sudden gesture.
“Haha, see you tomorrow, shy girl” he teased.
You roll your eyes,”Don’t call me that! Goodnight,”
You get inside the coffee shop to get ready to close down.
“I see things are escalating,”
“Oh my gosh, Cara, you scared me! Thought you left,” you gasp.
“Uf, don’t try to change the subject,”
You blush,” It’s nothing. He’s out of my league, he’ll never like a commoner like me. Besides, I’ve been reading a lot about his relationship with Lili Reinhart. So yeah,” you sigh as you face the harsh truth.
Cara scoffs,”I don’t know what you’re talking about but I know what I see. Anyways, the concert is tomorrow right?”
You sigh even more,”I didn’t even come close to the ticket price! I’ll never get to see Harry Styles. Forget about Cole liking me, I’m never going to see Harry!”
Cara places a comforting hand over your shoulder, ”Aww c’mon babygirl! Let me make you my special milkshake for you to take home,”
You decide to call in sick at work because today is Harry Styles’ concert, almost ALL of your friends are going to see him while you’re not. You had been dreaming about this day all summer and now it’s finally here but you can’t even go; IT’S SOUL-CRUSHING. You just wanna stay in bed all day and not talk to anybody. You don’t even wanna use your phone because all you see are pictures of your friends with their concert tickets and merch! Annoying.
BUZZ, You feel your phone vibrate from underneath your pillow.
You groan as you check the caller id: Cole
Shocked at the sight of his name, you quickly answer,”Hello?”
“Where are you and why haven’t you answered any of my texts?” he asks, sounding a little frustrated.
“Your texts..?” you check your inbox to find four messages from Cole
Where are you? Already got my morning coffee. See you later!
Why haven’t you come yet?
“Oh my gosh,” you quickly apologize,”I’m so sorry, my phone was on silent, I-“
“Nevermind, get dressed. I’m picking you up in 10,”
“Wait, where are we going?”
“You’ll see . Don’t worry, Cara’s joining us too,”
“OHMYGOSHYOUDIDNT,” you yelp in excitement as you quickly run over to Cole and give him the biggest, tightest hug ever.
He just parked outside the stadium and handed you VIP tickets for Harry Styles’ concert. He got one for Cara too since ‘she was always kind enough to cover your shift so that you and him could have a cup of coffee together,’
“Oh my gosh, Cole, I can’t believe… I don’t know how to..” you wipe your accidental happy tears.
“Ah, thank Cara. She was the one who reminded me of the concert! I’m sorry, I completely forgot about it,”
“Well, we’re here now, let’s go!” Cara excitedly exclaims.
“Let’s go,” Cole smiles brightly as he offers his hand.
You haven’t felt this happy in a very long time. When Cole first walked into the Coffee Shop with a bunch of scripts in his hand, you had no idea that you would be holding that same hand as you run over to see your favourite singer perform. Sure, you had seen him on TV but you never really felt anything.
He was just the guy from Riverdale. But now he has his arms around you while you watch in awe as Harry sings ‘Only Angel” .
The concert, so far, is going so well. Some fans recognized Cole but he kindly requested them to give you guys some space, promising them that he would take pictures with them after the concert.
Suddenly, everybody yelp in surprise and in awe as Harry sings ‘Summer Love’ alone. It’s one of the songs from One Direction’s second album. Hearing him sing it alone was sad and beautiful at the same time.
The screaming and the screeching stopped as everybody put their hands up in rhythm with the song.
“I was hoping that he would sing this one,” Cole exclaims.
You snicker, ”And why is that?”. You never took him for a Directioner.
“So that I could do this,” he immediately pulls you in for a deep kiss.
His hand linger at the back of your head as he kisses you smoothly while Harry sings the chorus.
The guy you’ve been crushing on the entire summer is kissing you while your favourite singer sings one of your favourite songs in the background, LIVE.
Did you just die and go to heaven? Because you swear, you felt like your soul had left your body.
There are thousands of people surrounding the two of you. Many must’ve been taking pictures but you didn’t care. You didn’t care because Cole didn’t.
Cole had the biggest grin on his face after he broke the kiss. You were still very amazed at the stunt he just pulled, ” Whoa, Cole, since when did you-“
“Since the day I heard you talk about Harry Styles. I instantly knew I wanted someone to talk about me like that with that same light and love in your eyes,”
You gush. He pushes your hair at the back of your ear, “I see it, (Y/n). I see the same light every time you tell me about your friends, about your favourite poet and I want to be a part of that. I want to be a part of all the things that keep you happy,”
“You have no idea,” and with that, you pull him for another kiss while Harry still continues to sing Summer Love.
The famous 25 year old heartthrob with the greasiest hair and the stinkiest crown beanie but the most beautiful pair of bluish-green eyes and the best smile was your Summer Love.
With summer coming to an end, you have your classes to attend and Cole has his hectic schedule to take care of, but right now, none of it matters. Because as you kissed, you knew in your heart, that no matter what Autumn may bring, you and Cole were going to be okay.
