/sorry if this sucks/
Shawn please, I will never ask for another favor in my life!“ you begged.
"No (Y/N), I don’t want to lie to your whole family,”
“It’s not my whole family, just the family that will actually show up,” one of your cousins is getting married next week and now that you are getting older your family expects you to bring a date. “Plus I already told them I was bringing a date and that the date was my boyfriend,” you confessed looking down at the ground.
“And why exactly did you say that?” Shawn stood there crossing his arms.
“Oh do i have the greatest reason, if I said I didn’t have a date, my aunt would have asked if I was a lesbian for the thousandth time this year,” Shawn looked at you and raised his left brow, “which I’m not. Then when I deny my ‘lesbian status’ she will try to set me up with one of her friends sons. Then sh-”
“Okay, okay, I’ll go with you!” he shouted.
“YAY! Thank you, thank you, thank you!” you ran and jumped on Shawn, wrapping your feet around his waist, nuzzling your nose into his neck. Shawn wrapped one arm around your body and the other hand holding your body up. He kept you in his arms and rocked side to side. “Oookay you can put me down now.”
“Oh, right,” he said as he put me down.
“What a lovely couple you two make,” one of your aunts commented. This was just about the fifteenth time you’ve heard that since the reception started. “Well I better go back to my table.”
“You’re doing a good job convincing my family,” you say as you nudge his arm
“Thanks, did I tell you that you look beautiful tonight?” Shawn asked making you blush.
“Oh please Shawn you don’t have to say that, you’re not my real date for the night.”
“Okay so I can’t compliment you? And I am serious, you look gorgeous, you always do,” he assured you.
Towards the end of the night the two of you were forced onto the dance floor. As the night went on the DJ began to play slow songs so you and Shawn decided that it was time to go sit down.
“I don’t think so! You two get back on the dance floor!” your aunt demanded.
You groaned grabbing Shawn by the hand and dragged him back on the floor knowing you wouldn’t win against your aunt. Shawn pulled you in to his chest and held you close as you two danced to the music.
“(Y/N), I’m really glad you convinced me to come tonight, I’m having an amazing time with an amazing girl,” you rested your head on his chest and wrapped your arms around his body. “Maybe one day we’ll be at one of these, but for you and me.”
You picked your head up and looked at
him. “You mean like a wedding?”
“Yeah, but not 'a’ wedding, hopefully it will be 'our’ wedding,” you blushed again, not sure whether he was serious and had thought about this before or just caught up in the moment.
“You really mean that?” you asked glaring into his lovely brown eyes.
“I really do, I love you (Y/N), I have for a while, in a soulmate way and a bestfriend way, I have for a while actually, sorry if it sounds corny,” he confessed looking down at you.
“Why did you never say anything before?”
“Well I was afraid it would make you feel uncomfortable if I had told you sooner,” your brain felt like it was about to explode. You had no clue that he felt anything like this for you. If anything you were happy, relieved if anything.
“I’m really glad you decided to say it, I love you too Shawn,” you two danced the rest of the night away in each other’s arms.
