Warnings: A little bit of kinky stuff, but nothing too extreme. Mostly just fluff.
Summary: You met Tom one day on the streets of New York City about a year ago. Now you travel with him almost anywhere he goes and he’s fallen for you.
A/N: I’ve been working on this for a bit. I just love Tom so much. By the way this imagine is written in both the reader’s and Tom’s perspective and it begins with the reader’s. I hope you enjoy. :)
The sun was peaking off the edges of the rooftops as I walked the busy streets of Manhattan. I was enjoying my day, exploring the area and capturing the city life with my own eyes. It was a hard time getting around. The streets were all filled with jostling people. I was barely able to move around without bumping into someone. Making my way to Madison Square Garden, someone had the audacity to bump into me holding their phone to their face. They were also laughing while filming, but then they turned around and started saying, “I’m so-.”
I faced the person to tell them off. When I saw them, I froze. I recognized him immediately. Tom Holland was staring right at me and I had nothing to say. He just stared at me and didn’t say anything for a bit. But immediately snapped out of it.
Tom: *puts down
phone* “Um- I am terribly sorry about that.”
You: *nervously says* “Right you don’t have to be sorry.“
Tom: “No I do. That was quite rude of me. What’s your name?”
You: *pretends to be chill* “It’s [y/n] and it’s cool dude. It’s aaaalll gooood.”
Tom: “You sure [y/n]?”
You: “Don’t worry about it, like I said it’s fine.” I couldn’t help to notice him biting his lower lip.
Tom: “Well if you wouldn’t mind. I’d love to take you for a cup of tea. As an apology on my behalf.” I started laughing and he asked, “What?”
You: “I just think it’s kind of funny that an English man is asking me to go drink some tea with him. Very ironic.”
Tom: *laughs* “It’s what were good at.”
You: “Drinking tea?
Tom: “That and apparently bumping into people.”
You: *laughs* “So we’re still going for tea? Or are we going to stand here and wait for more people to bump into you?”
Tom: “I’ll take my chances and go have some tea.”
And that is the
day I met one of my closest friends.
It had been a year since I’ve met [y/n]. But it was only yesterday that I admitted to Harrison that I had developed feelings for her. Since then he hadn’t stopped being up my ass about it. On our way back to the hotel from the gym, he just wouldn’t let it go.
can’t you just leave it alone?”
Harrison: “Because mate I’ve never seen you so happy.”
Tom: *hesitates* “What are you talking about?”
Harrison: “Every time you talk about her, you’ve got this strange glow going on.”
Tom: “Oh no that’s just my new highlighter, I call it sweat.”
Harrison: *rolls eyes* “I’m serious. And don’t get me started when you’re with her.” I slanted my head and gave him a look of disbelief, “Please… I am always happy.”
Harrison: “When you’re around her, you can never stop looking at her. And I’ve seen the way you look at her. Just ask her out.” I thought about it and just gave him a confused look, “I have no idea what you’re taking about.”
Harrison: “You’re such a fucking liar.”
Tom: *snaps* “I am not.” Harrison grabbed my shoulder and forced me to look at him, “What are you afraid of?”
Tom: “I’m afraid of the outcome.”
Harrison: “Are yo–”
Tom: “No it’s because I like her so much, I don’t want to screw it up. I mean look at my life. It’s been crazy and things have changed so much. It just seems impossible to be dating anyone.”
Harrison: “Well lucky for you, she’s with you most of the time anyway. I don’t see the issue.”
Tom: “I don’t want to drag her into my life,” I made gestures to the people I’ve noticed taking out their phones and taking pictures of me, “this life.”
Harrison: *looks at him* “You brought her into your life the moment you posted that Instagram story a year ago. You know the one of you bumping into her. I remember it clearly. I saw the way you stopped talking and noticed her. You were so focused on her. Admit it, you thought she was pretty the moment you saw her.”
Tom: *shrugs shoulders* I won’t deny it.“
Harrison: "So what have you got to lose?”
Tom: *sarcastically* Oh I don’t know, our friendship, everything we’ve built together. But yeah I could see how that’s NOT important.“
Harrison: *rolls eyes* "People’s feelings change over time. It happens, but you either be a strong person and embrace them. Or stay safe and hide them. You just got to decide which one you are.”
I stopped and
started contemplating. Harrison kept walking as I stood there for a while. I
took out my phone from my pocket and debated for what seemed like eternity. I
took in a deep breath and whispered to myself, “I’m fucking
I was watching reruns of some random show in my hotel room when I felt a buzz on my butt. I took out my phone and got a notification from Tom.
Tom: ‘hey are you busy later? :)’
You: ‘by busy you mean watching reruns all day? then yes i’m booked 😉’
Tom: ‘i just finished at the gym. walking back with haz. we should be there shortly’
You: 'Ok cool. are you planning to do anything else?’
Tom: 'well i’m actually going to take a shower because I probably smell like shit 💩’
You: 'really? because i always thought 21 year olds that come straight from the gym smell AM-AZ-ING. 😂’
Tom: 'i could literally hear the sarcasm 😒’
You: 'do what you must Holland ✌🏼’
Tom: 'actually i was wondering if you can come by to my room after i’m done. it won’t take long.’
You: 'yeah sure… Is everything ok?’
Tom: 'actually, I’ve never felt better darling ☺️’
You: 'native boy from southwest London you ok there? bc it seems to me you might be having a little stroke 🤔’
Tom: 'i call everyone darling don’t flatter yourself 😉’
You: 'haha wow you’re so funny. sometimes I forget how hilarious you are.’
Tom: 'STOP IT WITH THE SARCASM!?! anyway, I’ll be done in about half an hour. See you then?’
You: 'Sounds good to me… just make sure you actually take a shower.“
It didn’t take us long to get to the hotel. I told Harrison about the texts and finally going to go for it. He just smiled and told me that this was going to be good for me. Well I really hoped so. By the time we reached our rooms, Harrison gave me a comforting hug followed by squeezing of my shoulder. He nodded and went into his room. I walked into mine and headed for the shower. I took in deep breaths and told myself everything would be okay.
I knocked first to see if he was in his room. I heard him yell to come in. So I opened the door and saw him sitting on the bed. He looked up and noticed me at the door before I had the chance to say hi. My heart raced a little when I noticed a smirk on his face. His hair was still wet from his shower. It was all tousled; his curls were peaking from his forehead and the sides of his head. He was wearing a white tank top and his famous grey sweatpants. The definition of his arms and chest were much more prominent and I couldn’t help but stare.
Tom: *smirking* "Hey, anything wrong?”
You: *stops checking him out* “Oh nothing, so what’s up? Is this another way for you to prank me? To get m–”
Tom: *playfully rolls eyes* “Calm down darling, I wanted you to come because I need to tell you something.” He moved a bit and padded the mattress to his left. I hesitated and knew he had somewhere to be.
You: “Don’t you have some press conference or something later today? Or did you forget already?”
Tom: *chuckles* “I actually don’t know.”
You: “Maybe you should check then?”
Tom: “I’ll ask Haz after, this is important.”
I made my way towards him and sat right beside him. It was hard not to stare at his chest or arms. They were so defined and glistened with the reflection of the sun rays passing through the window. He stared down and ran his fingers through his wet curls. He looked a bit nervous and I couldn’t help to still feel a bit intimidated around him. After everything we’ve been through, this boy still has this kind of effect on me. Stupid cute superhero boys.
Tom: *looks back at you* “I don’t know if you noticed but I’m a bit nervous.”
You: *lies* “What I couldn’t tell.”
Tom: *plays with his hands while looking at you* “It’s just, every time I’m with you I have such a good time and you’re such an amazing person. It’s been a while I felt this way about someone-”
You: *cheeks redden* “What are you talking about?”
Tom: *smiles nervously* “Well I think you’re a great person. You have made this whole experience easier. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. You know you’re a great friend.”
You: “Now that’s an understatement, I’m pretty damn awesome. Even better than Haz.” *winks*
Tom: *chuckles* “Alright don’t push it .”
You: *chuckles* “You know I’m kidding. You’ve been such a kind person to me. I would have never thought we’d become so close in a span of a year.”
Tom: “Yeah me neither, and” *looks down* “I was just wondering if you’d-”
He looked up and I didn’t let him finish his sentence. I leaned fast and kissed him. My heart was beating so fast it felt like it was going to come out of my chest. It was fast; a small slow peck on his lips. He didn’t have time to react when I leaned back to see his expression. He looked taken back at first, but then his expression changed. He looked at me intensely and I saw his whole body language change. His shoulders relaxed but he didn’t stop staring at me.
I loosened up and I could feel the heat rush to my ears. She looked so beautiful and I just wanted to take a moment to admire her. I saw a worried look pass her face but I leaned in so fast and kissed her back. The moment my lips touched hers, I felt a sudden rush of adrenaline. It was probably a mix of nerves as well. My mind went blank as she kissed me back softly with a smile. In that moment, I opened my eyes and took a good look at her. I was smiling so much my cheeks were starting to hurt. She proceeded on getting on the left side of the mattress. She laid on her right side and positioned her arm. She put her hand on the side of her head. I turned my head to face her.
Tom: *jokingly says* “You totally stole my thunder.”
You: “What are you going on about now Holland?”
Tom: “I had this speech in my mind all ready. It was perfect and you go ahead and kiss me.”
You: *grins* “Get used to it.” *laughs*
Tom: “What stealing my thunder?”
You: “How can I possibly do that? You’re not Thor.” Then I saw her take a pillow and throw it at me, “I was talking about the kissing.”
I started laughing while throwing the pillow back at her. She got up from the bed and took another pillow. She threw it back and I nodded my head. I stood up and asked her, “You sure you want to do this?”
She gave me
this playful look and went up to me. I got up holding the pillow and we started
hitting each other with them. The sound of her laughter warmed my heart. I took
away her pillow and had a grin on my face. She looked at me confused as I threw
both our pillows aside. Before she knew what was happening, I grabbed her from
her legs and tossed her over my shoulder. She was hitting my back with her
You: *giggling* “TOM PUT ME DOWN!” I chuckled as I brought her to the bed and threw her on it.
Tom: “I might not be Thor but I’ve been told I’m a mean Spider-Man."
I got on the bed and pushed myself on top of her. I pinned her hands above her head. I positioned myself that my legs were outside hers. She blew off a strand of hair from her face. She looked at me and said, "I get it, you’re a lot stronger than me just let me go.”
Tom: *chuckles* “Or what?”
You: *determined* “I’ll make you.”
Tom: “Now ho-”
She leaned up and kissed me. This was different from when she first kissed me. It was more desperate, I felt her pushing herself against me. I let go of her hands and placed my right hand on her waist and the other just beside her shoulder. Then I was able to press my body against hers. I could feel her heart beat against my own. She teased me as she tentatively traced the bottom of my lips with her tongue. I lifted my head up so she didn’t have the chance to kiss me. I felt myself smirking when a look of disappointment crossed her face. I brought her wrists together above her head and held on to them tightly . She struggled under me and I wanted to pull back, to let her know we both could play the same game. Instead, I pressed my mouth against hers and started kissing her deeply. She kissed me back and felt her tongue slightly slip onto my lips and just a bit into my mouth. I let go of her wrists and lifted myself a bit off her. We stopped kissing and she looked at me for a long second. Then she proceeded in moving her hands and stopped as I felt them on my chest. She left one hand as she traced my chest and stomach with the other. She paused right at my trousers and hesitated for a bit. With a big grin on her face, she slipped her hand under my shirt, right beneath my trousers. The touch of her fingers so close against my skin made me shiver.
I teased him by putting my hand beneath his shirt right at the opening of his pants. A small groan escaped from his mouth and my whole body reacted. I grabbed the drawstrings from his pants and pulled him closer to feel his pelvis against mine. He didn’t fight it. He put the weight of it against mine when he sat up and removed his shirt. He threw it on the side before looking at me and grinning. He leaned down and kissed my forehead lightly, then went for my lips. He gave me a small peck before starting to kiss my jawline leaving a trail to my neck. Once he kissed my neck, I thrusted myself upward to feel him. With one hand he traced on body side, outlining all my curves. He stopped at my hip and gave it a nice squeeze. In that moment a small moan escaped my lips. We were so distracted that none of us paid attention to Harrison coming in.
Harrison: *looked shocked* “Oh shit, umm, is this a bad time?”
Tom was the first to lift his head and look at Haz. He looked a bit flustered and agitated. He played it off smoothly though as he smiled to his best friend while getting off me, “Actually, you couldn’t have come at a better time."
I saw that Harrison relaxed a bit. Tom was off the bed now, picking up his shirt. I on the other hand was so mortified that I barely moved for a few seconds. It took me a bit to actually look Haz in the eyes. I definitely knew I was blushing, but I was glad that I wasn’t the only one. Finally taking a good look at Haz, he was just as red and kept looking down hoping he didn’t see too much. I laughed a bit nervously as I got off the bed. I went to Tom while he put back on his shirt. He looked at me and smiled. I returned the smile and started looking in Harrison’s direction.
You: *smiles* "Well don’t just stand there, come in.”
Harrison: *smiles* “I see you’ve been keeping busy.”
You: “Oh this,” I pointed at Tom and I, “This is new.”
Harrison: “Well I’m glad you’ve decided to start seeing this dumbass.”
Tom: *small laugh* “You dick.”
You: *laughs* “I can’t imagine a better dick.”
Tom looked at me with a subtle seductive stare. His jaw clenched as he had the smallest smirk on his face. It took me a few seconds to realize that he was thinking about what I said. I blushed and I knew there was a satisfying look crossing his face. Harrison then looked back at Tom and headed towards him.
Tom: “So what’s up?”
Harrison: “Oh yeah I came to let you know that you had a press conference tonight but it got canceled. So I thought why not explore the city? It’ll help me with my ideas for my script.”
Tom: “Yeah ok sounds fun. Just give me a few minutes to get ready. I’ll meet you down in the lobby.”
Harrison: “[Y/N] you’re welcomed to join.”
You: *smiles* “I’ll come.”
Harrison: “Meet you down stairs in 10.”
He left and Tom came in front me of. He wrapped his arms wrap around my waist. I instinctively wrapped my arms around his neck. He gave me this optimistic look.
Tom: “Do you really want to go? We can stay here and finish what we started.” He winked at me while putting his hands on my hips and giving them a nice squeeze. As tempting as it was, I knew we had plenty of time to fool around. I grabbed his hands off my hips and held them in my own hands. I laced our fingers together and nodded.
You: “As much as I’d would love that. Haz is waiting for us and I kind of want to go and see what this city has to offer.”
Tom: “Alright fine.”
He gave me a small peck on my lips and whispered in my ear, “We’ll finish this later.”
