A/N: Sorry this part is a little short, tomorrows part will be longer;) hope y'all enjoy it:)
You woke up again to the smell of coffee and bacon. You rubbed
your eyes and realized you were now alone on the couch. You sat up and looked
to the kitchen, Jensen was frying bacon and flipping pancakes and had made a
pot of coffee. You smiled to yourself watching him in your kitchen. You looked
over at the clock and it now said 10:04 am. You made your way to the kitchen
stretching as you walked towards Jensen sitting at the counter.
“Mornin’” Jensen said as he put pancakes and bacon in front of you.
“Mmm good morning” you said giving him a huge smile for the food in front of you. He then poured you some coffee and handed the mug to you, “what did I do to deserve this special treatment?” you asked looking up at him.
“What can’t a guy just do something nice for his friend?” he said taking a sip from his own mug of coffee and you glared at him prompting him to answer truthfully, “I just hated seeing you get upset last night over that douchebag and I wanted to make sure you had a good start to your day” looking down while he spoke.
You reached out and grabbed his hand, “Thank you Jensen, that’s really sweet, and this isn’t just a good start this made my day. I can’t even remember the last time I sat down to eat breakfast” he smiled at you and got you a fork to start eating.
“Good I’m glad, I just want to make sure you know you’ve got people who care about you and you don’t have to accept anything less than someone who absolutely adores you and respects you” your eyes widened at that and you looked to him wondering what exactly he meant…” ya know just like your friends do, me, Jared, Misha everybody we all adore you.” And he turned to start cleaning up all the dishes. Of course he just meant that in a friendly way, he’s just a really nice guy who loves his friends, and you’re his friend, so he is being kind, stop reading too much into everything he does you internally scolded yourself for getting excited. Jensen came and sat next to you with his own plate of food and the two of you ate in silence for a few minutes. When you’d finished you grabbed another cup of coffee and went to turn the tv on you still had some time before you needed to go in to work.
“What time do you have to be on set today?” you asked from the couch.
“I’m about to head out but I will see you in my trailer later right?” he asked as he grabbed his bag.
“Ya you will, I’ll be in around lunch time”
‘’Alright see ya kid” he ruffled your hair and leaned down to kiss your head. You giggled and pretended to be annoyed waving bye as he left. You took your time getting ready for the day having multiple cups of coffee and taking a long shower.
As you walked into work you held a coffee in one hand and were looking down at your phone with the other. You weren’t paying attention at all when suddenly you walked right into somebody spilling your coffee all over them, “Oh my gosh I am so sorry I wasn’t even paying attention, I got this all over your shirt” you rambled on apologies and dug around in your bag looking for tissues to clean up some of the mess.
“Hey, hey its fine you’re fine I don’t even like this shirt anyways” a deep voice spoke and you finally looked up at the person you’d just spilled coffee all over, he was around 6 ft with dark brown almost black hair, tan skin, and deep brown eyes, “My name is Henry I’m an extra on set for the week, they’ll just give me another shirt in costumes, its fine” he smiled at you and you suddenly felt very nervous…
“uhh hi I’m Y/N, I’m writer for the show. I am really sorry for the coffee spill though I should’ve been watching where I was going” you apologized again giving him a small smile and he laughed.
“Its ok, I’m kinda glad you weren’t watching where you were going, just means I got to meet you” you felt your heart flutter, “It’s my lunch break, if you’re not doing anything would you want to grab lunch with me?”
You thought about Jensen and how you usually got lunch with him… but Jensen only saw you as a friend and you really needed to move on from your crush on him so you pushed back that voice that was saying What about Jensen and felt yourself nodding your head yes.
Lunch with Henry had been great, he was sweet and funny and really hot but something just felt off. You logically could tell he was a great guy and you enjoyed his company but something in you kept wanting to check the time to see how many minutes were left in the lunch break so you could go see Jensen again. Stop thinking about Jensen, give this guy a chance so you sat there and talked and laughed and flirted as much as you were capable until the lunch came to an end. The two of you walked back towards set together and you took Henry to the stage he was supposed to be at.
You looked over to see who all was filming and saw green eyes looking right back at you.
“Y/N”you turned to see Gen and Jared walking towards you and Henry waved bye and walked over to learn his scene, ”who was that?” Gen questioned giving you a knowing look.
“ya who was that?” Jensen asked, he seemed upset but you decided not to think too much of it.
“Umm that was Henry, I knocked into him earlier and accidently spilled my coffee all over him and he ended up asking me to lunch so I went” you said as nonchalantly as you could.
“So you went on a date with the extra?” Gen said excitedly
“It wasn’t a date, we just got food”
“but was there flirting?” Gen pried you knew she was very invested in seeing you date again; she was the only one you had told about Brandon before last night.
“umm I mean yes we flirted some, he’s sweet…” you trailed off knowing that you were blushing.
Gen squealed happily, “Ok I have to go film some more but I’ll meet you in Jensen’s trailer after and I want all of the details” you smiled and nodded and she turned to go film. You finally looked at Jensen and Jared, Jensen looked upset and Jared just looked worried…
“You boys ok?” you questioned
“Ya everything’s fine I also have to go film but I’ll catch up with you later” jarred gave a look you couldn’t make out to Jensen and walked away.
“Are you done filming? We can walk back to the trailer together” you said trying to get the conversation to a new topic
“So you ditched me for lunch to go on a date?” he’d already started walking away and he was walking a little too fast for you to keep up with.
“it wasn’t a date, but so what if it was? We eat lunch together every day I didn’t think it’d be a big deal” you were confused with his attitude, it wasn’t like him to get mad at you, the two of you would sometimes annoy the other but never mad.
He turned and seemed like he was going to say something but turned back around and walked into his trailer and you followed him in. He sat down on the bed and turned the tv on ignoring you.
“Jensen what’s wrong? Are you upset that I didn’t tell you I wouldn’t be going to lunch? I’m sorry, next time I’ll send you a text or something” you explained trying to get something out of him.
“so there’s going to be a next time?” he said without even looking at you
“You’re going to bail on me again to go on a date with this Henry guy?” it almost was like he was jealous…
“No, Jensen, no I won’t bail on you again, I’m sorry I didn’t mean to make you upset especially after how sweet you were last night and this morning, it just had been a while since a cute guy had showed any interest in me and I went with it” you tried to explain looking down at your feet, you could sense that he was looking at you now but you didn’t want to meet his gaze, “I don’t think it’s going to go anywhere though, he’s a nice guy but he’s only here for the week and I just didn’t feel what I wanted to feel , ya know?” you finally looked up at him and he just stared at you, you didn’t think you were getting anything out of him at this point so you just sighed and sat down on the couch to start writing. You decided to shoot Gen a text to warn her
You: Jensen seems upset with me, he’s mad I ditched him for lunch today, might be a better idea if we talk about Henry later.
Gen: That’s because he likes you and he’s jealous! But we will talk about henry later, he’s cute
You: Jensen does not like me the same way I like him; he’s just upset that I bailed without telling him. I think he thinks of me like a little sister L Henry is very cute, but no spark
You put your phone down and tried to keep writing, trying to push Gen’s words out of your head. You were so wrapped up in your writing you didn’t notice Jensen get up from the bed until you felt a dip in the couch. You turned to look at him and shut your laptop, you could tell he wanted to talk.
“Look, I’m sorry I got upset, I’m not really sure why I got upset, I just didn’t like the idea of spending time with him instead of me…” He was looking down at his hands struggling to figure out what to say.
“hey its ok, I’d be pretty pissed if you ditched me for some girl too”
He looked at you and the look he gave you could’ve stopped your heart. He sat up so he was looking directly in your eye and placed one hand on the side of your face and he gently rubbed his thumb across your cheek.
“Jensen?” you didn’t understand what he was doing but he still didn’t speak. Instead he started to lean in so you did too….
“Hey guys! I thought we could have another game night tonight at my place you two in?” Jared asked as he came walking into the trailer, you and Jensen tried to put as much space between the two of you as you could and at least pretend to pay attention to what Jared was saying.
“Yeah Jared a game night sounds great, Gen can come this time right?” you asked trying to act like you hadn’t just almost kissed your best friend (dream guy).
“Gen, Misha, and Mark are all going to come, what about you Jensen you in?”
“Yeah man sounds like fun” Jensen said with a small smile. You turned to look at him, but he had all of his focus on Jared and talking about games for tonight.
You were more than a little tipsy, Jared had bought your favorite whiskey and well after today you were more than happy to down a couple or so drinks. Everyone was roaring with laughter, Gen had decided on a Mario Kart night and everyone was more than happy to play that game. You and Jensen hadn’t been alone since earlier and so you hadn’t talked about or continued what happened. You kept stealing glances at each other, and even a few times would smile are each other but for the most part you weren’t talking. Gen plopped down on the couch next to you, and leaned over, “How come you and Jensen keep eye fucking each other but won’t speak” she giggled as you shushed her. You motioned for her to follow you and the two of you went into the kitchen and you told her about what happened earlier, “I told you he liked you!” and you shushed her again.
“I don’t know what it means Gen, because we didn’t actually kiss and he didn’t actually say anything about what he feels and i just don’t know what to do or say or what he wants…” you shut up as the boys came walking into the kitchen to grab food, Gen started talking to Misha about something and you listened in
“Hey” you turned to Jensen standing next to you, he looked nervous.
“Hey there” you responded not sure of what to say.
“What time do you come into work tomorrow?”
you thought his question was a little odd but responded none the less,”Umm Ill be there around 8am, why?”
“I don’t have to be there till 10, but would it be alright if i came in at the same time as you so we can talk?” as he said this you felt his fingers curl around yours and he ran his thumb rubbed circles. You gave him a smile and nodded.
“It is your trailer I can’t exactly keep you from coming in”you joked, “But I would really love to continue or discuss our… conversation from earlier” you looked down nervous.
“I would really love to.. continue that conversation” Jensen said squeezing your hand. You looked up into his green eye and felt your stomach start to do flip flops in anticipation for tomorrow.
