Alex Summers imagine
After all the fighting and the re building of the school the professor thought it would be nice to throw an almost celebration ball. Ever since those words left his lips the whole school,well mostly the girls couldn’t stop talking about it.
Apart from me, I couldn’t think about anything else apart from learning to use my abilities we nearly lost a lot of people in the war against a God a lot of people I cared about. Some ball wasn’t going to distract me from what I needed to do.
“Y/N have you even got a dress yet?” Jean asked sitting down opposite me on a table in the lounge area of the school. I shook my head not even taking my eyes of the book I was flicking through. “Come on Y/N you’re not going to catch Alex’s eye if you turn up in a pair of jeans” my head shout up at his names eyes scanning the lounge to make sure he wasn’t there before they landed on a now smirking Jean.
“Honestly Jean can you keep your voice down the last thing I want is anyone catching on to the fact I have a giant crush of Alex” I mutter closing my book.
Alex was the first person who truly made me feel at ease when I got to the school. He was the one to show me around and introduce me to the rest of the first X-Men crew. After the events on the beach and what happened to Charles everyone went their separate ways no more X-Men. I hadn’t seen Alex since that day he dropped me back home with a goodbye hug,that was until he came back about two months ago with his brother Scott and everything I felt from before just came rushing back.
“Earth to Y/N” I blink out of my state as Jean swipes her hand in front of my face. “I know both me and Jub are younger than you but we are going dress shopping later if you want to come?” I smiled at Jean and nodded causing her to let out a little scream. “Don’t worry we’re going to find the perfect dress to make sure Alex notices you in the right way” and with a wink and a laugh she was off probably to find Jubilee and tell her the news.
I took one final look in the mirror. My hair was curled down to my shoulders and the make up Jean had done went well with my red dress. I couldn’t help but feel sick even if Alex paid no attention to me tonight I was going to tell him how I feel before another war brakes out.
“Y/N you ready?” I hear Jean call from outside my room. Well no looking back now I grab my little bag of my bed and head out to greet the girl and her date.
“Y/N wow you look beautiful” I turn to see a blushing Scott who was holding Jean’s hand.
“Why thank you Scott,let’s hope I get the same reaction out of your brother” I giggle as the three of us head down to the ball room.
The ball room was filled with tacky lights and a disco ball,probably less formal then what the professor was looking for. As soon as we had gotten inside Jean and Scott had left me standing by the punch bowl.
“Y/N wow” I heard his voice before I saw him,I slowly slid of the table until I was standing just in front of Alex his blue eyes shining under the lights.
“Hey Summers” I greet him like old times sake a smile forming on his face.
“You look absolutely beautiful breath taking” he mumbles out scratching behind his head something he did when he was nervous even though he never admits it.
“Thanks Alex,you scrub up well don’t you” I giggle feeling like a 10 year old who’s little school crush just noticed her.
“Would you um like to dance?” He asks holding out his hand,which I gladly accepts as he drags me onto the dance floor. Of course a slow song would start as me make it to the centre. I feel Alex wrap his arms around my waist and I feel myself wrap my arms around his neck and melt into his touch.
“I’m so happy that you’re here again Alex” I mutter into his shoulder as the two of us sway back and forth.
“Me too Y/N,there’s something I need to tell you” I lift my head of his shoulder and again stare into his blue eyes that are lit up from the disco ball above us.
“I’m in love with you,I have been probably from the first time I met you. How you were so sweet with everyone,how you managed to put up with moody old me knowing my past and what I was like and still you wanted to be my friend. After the events in Cuba when I drove you home and said goodbye I didn’t want to let go I wanted to take you with me but that would’ve been selfish. So when I came back I was ready to accept that you were mad at me hated me,but instead you hugged me and told me how much you missed me and I’m happier now but I’ll never be as happy as I am with you. So that’s it it’s rambled and not romantic but you know me Y/L/N I’m not good with words” I stare at him even more now probably making him uncomfortable but I didn’t know what else to do my heart beating so fast.
But I lean up him catching on to what I was about to do and then we are kissing. Pulling away I lean my forehead against his both of us smiling like idiots and I swear I can hear some one cheering from inside the room,but all that matters in this moment is Alex and I.
“Well you don’t need to be good with words,cause I love you too Summers”
