Clay overreacts when he sees Tony & Ryan
Thanks to @omiko429 for the fic idea. I’ve been wanting to write clony ever since I started shipping them but I didn’t really have any good ideas. Posting my writing on Tumblr is new to me, I’ve only ever written tvd stuff and it’s all on ff.net so I hope this is alright. Enjoy 👍🏾
It was Courtney Crimson’s 18th birthday party.
Of course when I got invited my initial thought was no way am I going to that but unfortunately Tony had talked me into it and accepted her invitation for the both of us.
As soon as I stepped into her house l tripped on a red cup but luckily Tony had a grasp on my hand and was leading us through the crowd towards the kitchen.
The house was packed with drunk upperclassmen, the music was blaring so loud I could barely hear myself think, and I felt like I wanted to choke from the mixtures of cologne and perfume swimming in the air.
But other than that I was okay.
“You want a drink, Clay?”
“Sure. I’ll just have whatever you’re having.”
Tony handed over a bottle of beer. I internally sighed out of relief that it wasn’t something super strong. I remembered being drunk once before and it was not a good feeling.
We ended up sitting on the couch, drinking our beers, and just enjoying each other’s company.
I guess this party wasn’t so bad after all. Maybe it’s because I was here with Tony. He always made things better.
“You gentlemen enjoying yourselves?”
Ryan appeared out of nowhere, plopping right next to Tony.
“Yeah,” Tony spoke up. “What about you?”
“Oh you know…keeping my eyes open for any potential new baes.”
Tony laughed. “Yeah, that sounds like you.”
“You guys want any refills?” Ryan pointed at our drinks.
“Yeah, sure. Clay?”
“No, I’m good.”
Ryan stood up and Tony offered to tag along with him.
Tony leaned in and gave me a small kiss on the cheek. “We’ll be back.”
As I sat on the couch alone I couldn’t help but let my mind wonder.
Am I crazy or were Tony and Ryan flirting right in front of me?
I turned around and looked at them chatting in the kitchen and I couldn’t help but notice how nice they looked together. Tony was smiling that beautiful smile of his so I assumed Ryan was saying something funny.
I was starting to feel awkward sitting by myself and I had to pee so I found my way to the bathroom.
After splashing my face with water, I felt a little more calm but I still wasn’t ready to go back out. I didn’t want to make a big deal out of anything but Tony was my boyfriend. I didn’t think it was a problem for exes to be cordial with one another, I mean Tony wasn’t the kind of guy to hold grudges anyway but they seemed a little too comfortable for my liking.
Clay, you sound like a jealous girl.
“Hey! I need to get in there!” Someone yelled from the other side, letting me know I had been in there longer than necessary.
I opened the door and a girl looked me up and down before asking, “are you done?”
“Yeah, my bad, sorry.”
I walked back out to the party and didn’t see Tony or Ryan on the couch. I checked the kitchen as well and there was no sign of them.
Eventually I noticed them leaning on the wall near the doors that lead to the backyard and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
It was like my vision went from clear to red.
I pushed my way through the people, not caring who I hit, and marched up to Tony.
“What the fuck is going on here!?”
They immediately moved away from each other and had confusion plastered all over their faces.
“Clay? What’s wrong?” Tony had the nerve to look innocent with those chocolate brown puppy eyes.
“What’s wrong?? You really have to ask?”
Tony went to touch my arm but I pulled away.
“Don’t touch me!”
I got the attention of a few people around us but I didn’t care.
Ryan hadn’t said a word. Maybe he did have a conscious after all.
“Did something happen?” Tony asked.
“You know what,” I laughed maliciously. “I’m not gonna play this game with you. I didn’t even want to come here in the first place! So fuck this party and fuck the both of you. I’m out.”
My adrenaline was going so fast I didn’t even realize Tony had been calling my name as soon as I walked away.
“What!?” I spun around.
I almost broke down by the mixture of emotions on Tony’s face. I was actually starting to feel guilty.
“Will you stop walking and just talk to me? What the fuck happened in there?”
“You were about to let Ryan kiss you until I showed up!”
“No I wasn’t! We were just talking.”
“Then why were you so close together? And why was he leaning into your face?”
“We couldn’t hear each other over the music so he was talking in my ear. That’s it.”
I fucked up.
“Por el bien folla, Clay. You really think I would do that to you?”
“I don’t know…no. It’s just, you guys looked so cozy a-and it seemed like you were flirting with him so I thought-”
“Clay,” Tony interrupted. “Ryan and I have been over for a long time. I’m with you. I only want you.”
“Ugh, I’m so stupid.”
Tony sighed. “Come here.”
He ran his hand up and down my back in a soothing gesture.
“Can we get out of here?” I whispered.
The car ride back to my house was quiet but it didn’t feel strained.
Soon enough we were parked outside. It was quiet except for the minimal sounds of crickets chirping and a slight gust of wind coming through.
“I’m sorry. That was totally irrational of me. I guess I was just…”
I turned to give him a “you’re right” look but I couldn’t admit it out loud. I was embarrassed.
“Since I ruined the party mode do you want to come in? I mean my parents are probably sleep but we can watch a movie in my room or something.”
I went to open the door but Tony’s hand stopped me.
“Clay, you know I love you, right?”
I smiled as a slight blush crept onto my cheeks.
“I love you too.”
He leaned over and gave me the most soft yet passionate kiss we’ve ever shared.
This boy will be the death of me.
