I thought of this while in star bucks one day. What if MC worked at a coffee shop part time before meeting the RFA and continued to work there after joining and one of the members walked in and ordered a drink without realizing it was MC. So she obviously recognized them from chat so she wrote a little message on their cups, only for them to realize it after they left. ?
I apologize if this is kind OOC? Feed back is appreciated!
Stands there for awhile before heading to the counter
MC smiles brightly at him as she recognized him.
Orders a Venti Hot chocolate
MC nods and says “Coming right up, can I get your name for the order?”
a small giggle escaped her as she nodded and walked away with his cup before writing down a special note for him.
“ It was nice to see you in person, Superman Yoosung! ^3^. Since I made you this drink…you got to return the favor remember? - MC ❤ ”
He thinks she’s cute but he can’t fall for the barista right? He’s already talking to MC via messenger!
They exchange thank you’s and he walks out.
Notices the little note on the side of his cup as he got to the bus stop to head to the University.
NON STOP SMILES FOR THE REST OF THE DAY
sends a text message to MC
“MC!!! Why didn’t you tell me you worked there?!! I can’t bring myself to throw this cup away now! It’s just a reminder that we are really under the same sky!”
Walks in, obviously thinks the barista is cute
MC smiles as friendly as she could. She didn’t want to make it obvious.
His ego get’s the best of him
“I bet you’re a fan, You want a autograph? How about a Selca with me?”
She nods and takes out her phone real quickly. Takes the photo
he’s now grinning. she’s so cute ~
Orders a grande Tea.
MC nods as she turned to start his order.
“You were right, you are more handsome in person. Also I managed to get your fan club to come to the party ~ Hopefully I can get my hands on you too, Zenny ~ MC ❤ “
After they exchange thank you’s he flashed her a playful smirk and winked.
Quickly she logged onto the messenger to leave the selca they took together with the caption
“…I ran into my favorite actor today hehe ~ ! “
[ photo attachment of her and Zen together ]
As Zen left he took a drink only to see the note in the corner of his eye
turning the cup. He read it
CUE HIM SPITTING OUT HIS HOT DRINK
debates to turn back or not
hears his messenger go off
reads what MC says and laughs as he seen her sign off real fast.
decides to send a text message to her
“You know I will be coming over here every day now to see my princess ~ “
She decided to go to a different cafe today
walks into MC’s work place.
Looks at the beverage board for a few minutes
MC standing there with a huge grin on her face
tries so hard to not say her name out loud.
as Jaehee walks up to the counter she orders
1 for her boss. A espresso with 2 shots for him
1 for her. A Venti coffee for her. ( 3 creams 4 sugars )
MC Nodded as she asked which cup is her drink.
Quickly writes a small note on her cup
“You can do this Jaehee! Remember I am here for you if you ever need support ~ Cheer up! - MC ❤ “
and writes another note on Jumin’s cup
“…you better be nice to Jaehee today, She’s human too. - MC”
As she put the cup in the cup holders she smiled towards Jaehee
“…I hope you have a nice day, Miss. Jaehee ~”
That’s when Jaehee smiled and nodded, walking out she went back to the car. Passing one cup to Jumin.
a small pause
Oh no… he doesn’t like it does he??
“…MC wrote some strange note on my cup”
looks at it. Gasps lightly as she noticed there was writing on her cup as well.
Smiles brightly as they drove past the cafe
NOW SHE CAN’T STOP SMILING
ALL DAY ALL SMILES. HAPPY BAEHEE
and a confused Jumin
RARELY goes to a cafe on his own.
ASSISTANT KANG HELP
walks in on his own, instantly regrets it.
how does one order a drink? do they walk up?
do they come to him?
MC can’t help but suppress the giggling and smiling she’s doing
C & R Director is in her coffee shop looking so lost.
Decides to walk up to him with a pen and paper in hand
“…Excuse me J—Sir?”
a commoner walking up to him? so he was right they walk up to you
“…you seem out of place. You need help?”
a flash smile touched his lips before walking up to the counter with her
Asks which drink is the best.
“…you seem like the type of man who’d enjoy a regular type of drink. I can make you a grande french vanilla?”
nods as he paid and left a reasonable tip
LET’S JUST SAY HE LIKED THE HELP
AND MAYBE HER FACE
AND THAT NO-ONE TOOK TIME TO HELP
he’s waiting for his cup on the other side so she took liberty to write a small note
“…I cannot help but think you’re so cute while all flustered. Please say hello to Elizabeth 3rd for me. I hope you have a good day at work. - MC ❤ “
After she was done she passed it over to him
“Have a nice day, Mr. Jumin, sir ~ “
turns around and nods before walking to his car.
As he got in he noticed the small note on the side
reading it he couldn’t help but chuckle
“…Driver Kim. I want to come to this exact place every day at the same time.”
Luciel / 707 / defender of justice ….[Saeyoung]
Already knew she worked there. But since he was rare to post selca’s in chat
he decided to have fun with this.
Walks in and decides to grab a smoothie for the day.
RIGHT SOMETHING HEALTHY FOR ONCE
What Saeyoung forgot is that he recently posted a photo of himself in chat
MC knew who he was. Seven knew who she was
LET THE GAMES BEGIN
“…what’s your healthiest smoothie?”
“…I’d have to say the orange mango smoothie. It hits the taste buds”
“…okay can I get a hot chocolate”
707 that little shit
“can I get a name for this order?”
MC snorts as she nods, grabbing his cup she wrote a small note
“using your friend’s name huh? well it was nice to see you in person, God seven! now go save the earth! ~ 606 ❤ “
they exchange thank you’s and good byes before he walked away
he looked down at his cup and couldn’t help but laugh.

You were in
the forest again.
light streaming through the trees, and the vivid color of the leaves told you
that you were dreaming. You felt a flutter in your stomach and smiled to
yourself. If there was color, that meant he would be here. You let your
instincts take over and walked swiftly in the direction the creek you’d visited
so many times before.
was, just like you knew he’d be. He turned to you with a boyish smile on his
face and you felt like you had just gotten home after a long trip away. You
didn’t have a name to attach to the color of his eyes, but you knew they were
deep and familiar. He held out a hand to you and you grabbed it, never knowing
how much time you’d have here. Tonight was a lucky one. You spent what felt
like an entire summer in the woods, neither of you speaking but somehow
heard a buzzing in the distance, you knew your time was up. You held tight to
his hand, but the world around you faded anyway. The feeling of his fingers
laced with yours was the last thing to slip away.
Something weird about watching ‘13 Reasons Why’ is that by the end you’re rooting for Hannah and wanting her to make it and be okay that you almost forget she’s dead and the ending is already sealed. Clay won’t wake up to it all being a dream, she won’t be all “surprise bitch”, she’s dead, and it feels weirdly surprising when the suicide scene happens but you knew the whole time it was coming…

of all lmao the summary I just wrote for this was so cheesy I apologize. I had
fun writing this so I hope you have fun reading it but if not sorry I suck. I’m
posting it without editing it so if you see any mistakes I promise I’ll fix
them tomorrow I’m just currently being lazy. Don’t forget to request!
You heard it happened to another
girl from your old school last week. She’d been visiting family in another town
when it happened. You heard it happened like some sort of rom-com. Apparently, she’d
dropped her wallet and he’d tapped on her shoulder to return it to her. She
turned and saw him, like actually saw him, in color. You’d heard it a billion
times. When you touch the right person for the first time, you finally start to
see in color. At first, it’s just them you see in color, everything else stays
black and white, but after a while you can see everything. Something in you
goes right with something in them and the rest is history.
It was hard to even conceptualize.
You’d lived your whole life seeing black and white, what did it even mean to
see in color. They compared it to The
Wizard of Oz, like seeing in Technicolor. Before you touch them is like
Dorothy in Kansas, but after was like when she went over the rainbow to Munchkinland.
People who could see it had tried to explain it to you many times before, but
they always ended up saying it was impossible to explain to someone who
couldn’t see it; you’d see one day. But what if you didn’t? There were people
who lived their whole lives and dies still seeing black and white. Maybe you
would be one of those people.
You felt stupid even thinking about
it. You were only in high school after all. There were people who didn’t see
their person until they were 30, people who didn’t see their person until they
were 60! Why were you so anxious?
You knew you didn’t need
another person to survive or anything, you could take care of yourself. It’s
just the thought of spending your whole life by yourself sounded pretty
unappetizing. Even though so many people hadn’t found their person yet you
couldn’t help the feeling like you were late. You knew a couple that had seen
each other since second grade. You were patient, but you just wanted to know
what you were missing.
Your first day at a new school.
You’d moved into your new house in Riverdale a couple days ago, and it seemed
like a nice town. All the people you’d met seemed welcoming enough and your
room was bigger than in your old house. You hadn’t moved here to find your
person or anything, your mom’s job had a great opportunity here for her, but
you thought maybe this would be that place where it would happen. You didn’t
want to get your hopes up… but what if?
You pulled up into a spot on the
far side of the parking lot at Riverdale High. You took a deep breath before
ripping the band-aid off and opening the car door, making you way toward the
entrance. Various other students were laughing and talking with their friends. To
say you were nervous would be to say that Mount Everest was a bit of a hike: a
huge understatement. It was the first day back from summer, but you’d never
been the new kid before. You didn’t know a soul.
You’d been to the office once
before over the weekend to register for classes so you found your way there
relatively easily once you got inside. You walked into the bustling office and tried
to avoid getting hit by a receptionist who at that speed could have easily
passed for a linebacker. You hesitantly approached a woman behind a desk who
looked busy, but at least noticeably less busy than everyone else. She was typing
up something with a level of ferocity that had to be breaking some sort of
record. You waited uncomfortably for her to finish what she was doing and
notice you standing in front of her. Was she going to finish?
After half a minute and a few final
loud smacks on her keyboard, she pushed up her glasses and looked up at you
with a weary but genuine smile. “Can I help you with something, honey?”
“Oh, yeah,” you said fumbling
through the front pocket of your backpack for the right paper. “Here it is.”
You slid the paper to her with your name and information they had given you
when you’d registered. “I’m new.”
Her eyes scanned the paper and she
turned to grab something from behind the desk. She turned back to you and
passed a piece of paper to you. “So, this is your schedule. The school is a bit
of a maze so let me see if I can find someone…” She looked around the office
and her eyes landed on someone. “Aha!” You followed her line of sight and saw a
boy with his arms full of books walking toward the door. You strained your neck
to see his face but he was turned away. “Mr.
Andrews?!” The boy stopped in his tracks and swiveled around in search for the
source of his name. Whoa. The receptionist waved him over and he made his way
over to you.
You had tried your whole life not
to think about the boys you met too much so you wouldn’t get too attached to
them only for them to see someone else. But boy, oh boy, he was kind of a babe.
“Mr. Andrews, she doesn’t know her
way around the school yet; Could you show her to her to her first class?”
He glanced quickly at you then back
to the receptionist, “Oh, yeah. No problem!”
You smiled graciously at the
receptionist and she turned back to her work.
“So we’re going to…” He looked over
the schedule and mumbled to himself. “Ah, cool.” He looked up at you and
smiled. “That’s not far at all.” You could feel your heart flutter. He started
walking down the hall way and you stayed by his side, a couple inches away. “I
would shake your hand but I don’t really have a free one at the moment,” he
said nodding down to the comically large pile of books he was carrying. “I’m
not trying to be rude, I promise.”
“No, don’t even worry about it.” You
replied. Secretly though, you were kind of upset you couldn’t shake his hand.
You wanted to touch him for a second, just to rule him out as your person. Now
you were going to be thinking about him all day.
“So, are you a freshman? Or just
new?” he asked while maneuvering through the populated hallway.
“Just new. My mom got a promotion
so we moved to Riverdale last week. I’m actually a sophomore.” You explained.
You had a feeling you would have to be telling this story pretty frequently in
the near future.
“Oh, hey, cool! I’m a sophomore
too! Maybe we’ll have classed together and stuff.” He said with a hint of excitement.
You didn’t even know why you were getting your hopes up. For all you know he
had already seen his person.
“I hope so. So far you’re the only
person I’ve met at this school. It would be nice to have a familiar face in a
class or two.” You tried to keep the sound of desperation in your voice to a
He stopped in front of a classroom
on the right side of the hallway, “Well, here we are.”
You didn’t want to leave yet, but
you knew you had to. “Thank you so much for helping me out, by the way.
He smiled and turned to face you,
backing away in the opposite direction “Yeah, maybe I’ll see you around later?”
It only hit you then that you didn’t know his first name. And he didn’t know
your name either. You opened your mouth to speak, some guy rammed into him,
knocking down all his books and making him fall right onto you.
The guy looked at the pile up he’d
caused, “Oh, sorry dude,” and walked away.
“I’m so sorry,” he said lifting
himself off you and turning to pick up his books without looking at you.
You looked down at your backpack and
fixed everything that was misplaced. “It wasn’t your fault,” you comforted
without looking up. “It was that stupid guy, he came out of nowhere.”
It was then that you looked up at
him, and it happened. You could see him. You, quite literally, could not
believe your eyes. You could see the way he really looked, with all the colors
that belonged to him. He looked even more beautiful that you had thought. His
hair was bright – you didn’t know what everyone else’s hair looked like, or
what color to call his, but you knew it was special. You could see the blush in
his cheeks as he fumbled with his books, you hadn’t known what blushing really
looked like. You could see him, and for now, only him.
He still hadn’t looked up from the
books. An overwhelming feeling of fear washed over you. What if he didn’t see
you in color back? That happened sometimes. What if it happened to you? You looked
at him and you wanted to say something, to ask him, but nothing could come out.
“Hey,” he said, “I just realized
that I never got to ask you–” He glanced up and you and back down before he knew
what he had seen. He froze, calculating in his head. He slowly turned his head
up to face you. He didn’t say anything, he just looked at you and for a while,
you just looked back.
You broke the silence, “Can, can
you see me? In color?”
He nodded his head yes but remained
silent. You could see his eyes scanning all over you, looking like it was the
first time he had his eyes, because it kind of was.
With wide eyes he darted his to
yours, realizing, “What did you say your name was?”
“I didn’t,” you laughed lightly.
“Well can you? Please?” He laughed
“Y/n,” he said more to himself than
to you, like he was feeling how it felt on him. “I’m Archie.”
“It’s a real pleasure to meet you
“I guess so,” You were in as much
shock as he was. This was definitely not how you had expected your first day at
Riverdale High to start, but you certainly weren’t complaining.
“Do you want to get out of here? We
can talk and stuff,” he asked standing up.
“There is nothing more I want in
the world.” You reached out your hand and he pulled you up. You walked right
out the school and onto the street abandoning all the papers and books. You had
more important things to do. You were finally seeing in Technicolor.
8: “I’ve come to the conclusion, that this house just might be haunted.”
46: “How did I get stuck here with you?”
A/N: Hope you two don’t mind I combined your requests, I thought it could fit well together and create an interesting story.
Jughead sighed, already annoyed by the prospect of even being in the same room as these people.
He was at a party, filled with drunk and high kids who stumbled around excitedly. The buzz of the room screamed celebration and all Jughead could do was lean against a wall, and close his eyes in tested patience. Why did he agree to this again?
Oh that’s right, it was your birthday and your friends, despite their own interest had invited him because they knew you wouldn’t be able to enjoy your birthday without your best friend. And that’s how Jughead landed here, because he was a faithful and kind best friend, he’d sacrificed his own fortunes and come to this rather wild party.
You’d been surprised when he’d shown up, but no doubt happy. Though you’d quickly been dragged of by one of your friends, with the yell of a promise to meet up with him later. Jughead would’ve honestly left by now if you hadn’t said something. He honestly questioned why he was your friend after the stunts you pulled.
“Juggy…!” Called a sing-song voice. Jughead blinked, turning to see you stumble towards him with the biggest grin on your face. He sighed, already knowing this couldn’t be good and when you finally reached him all he had to do was take was sniff to realized you were intoxicated.
“You’re drunk.” Jughead stated bluntly, staring down at you unimpressed as you giggled at him.
“No, duh, Juggy.” You ‘lightly’ slapped his shoulder, making him wince by your rather rough hit. “It’s my birthday and the giiiirrlllls- the girls wanted me to drink.” You slurred, smiling messily up at him.
Jughead sighed, taking your arm he started leading you up the stairs. “Come one, your too drunk.” He stated and despite your protests, he continued to lead you up the stairs and into one of your friends bedrooms. Luckily this wasn’t at your home, so once Jughead got you stable enough he could steal you away from your own party and take you home.
Once in the room, you stared stupidly at the ceiling jumping every time Jughead walked by. “I’ve come to the conclusion, that this house just might be haunted.” You giggled, staring at Jughead now dazed. He rolled his eyes, his patience wearing thin.
“How did I get stuck here with you?” He found himself asking, taking a seat beside you as you leaned against him. He tried to keep himself calm, you knew he didn’t like touching so much and you were only doing this because you weren’t completely right in the head right now.
“Because you loooove me.” You hiccuped, as your eyes suddenly grew heavy and you found the side of Jughead very comfortable. Jughead though, watched uncomfortably as you fell asleep against his side. Despite his own hatred towards touching, he couldn’t help but smile down at your cute flushed face. “And i’m the only one for you.” You mumbled sleepily, not completely hearing what you were saying yourself.
“You’re right,” Jughead admitted once he knew you were asleep. “You’re the only one for me.”
A/N: I’m back!!!!!!! It’s impressive, I know. I didn’t write a request because I left town for the weekend and forgot my requests notebook at home, so I decided to write something related to my vintage aesthetics love. Hope you enjoy this and I promise I will post a lot once again!! :)
The moment Peter saw you for the first time, he knew he was whipped. He had never felt anything similar before -it was one look at you all it took for him to believe that there was no one in the whole world who could be more beautiful.
It had all happened quickly and that is why Peter believed it was destiny. You were sitting on a booth in a café, a book in your hands. A coffee was in front of you, already cold. You had completely forgotten about it as you had submerged yourself into the book. Peter had waited for half an hour before ordering anything so the café would fill up. Once there were no empty booths, he finally ordered a hot chocolate and approached you, a lump on his throat while he tried not to panic. ‘’Hey’’ he whispered. He cleared his throat softly and spoke louder, seeing you hadn’t heard him. ‘’Hey. I’m sorry to interrupt you, but would you mind if I sat here? There are no empty seats in the whole café.’’ You had risen your head up when your heard him speak, and he couldn’t stop staring at your eyes. You looked around before answering and smiled softly. ‘’Yes, of course’’ you told him. He sat in front of you and took a book out of his bag so he would have something to do. You took one glance at his book and smiled. ‘’I love Hamlet’’ you told him. ‘’Are you reading it for school?’’ Peter didn’t realise that you were talking to him at first and he turned around, expecting somebody to be behind him. He then realised that he was holding a copy of Hamlet on his hands and scratched his neck, his cheeks pink. ‘’Uh, no’’ he said softly. ‘’My aunt said this was really good, so I thought I’d give it a go.’’ ‘’Well,’’ you said, ‘’you aunt is a wise woman. I really like it. I know Romeo and Juliet is more famous, but I think the writing in Hamlet is better. I hope you enjoy it.’’ He nodded his head and continued reading, looking at you every now and then. He didn’t realise you writing something on a napkin and putting your book in your bag. He did notice the moment you got up from the booth, and he reprimanded himself for not having said anything else. Before he could say goodbye, you gave him a folded napkin. ‘’If you want, you can send me a message when you finish Hamlet and we can meet to talk about it’’ you said. ‘’It’s up to you.’’ You left the café before he had the chance to say anything else, a huge grin on his face.
That night, Peter finished Hamlet, and he counted the minutes till morning so he could text you and tell you about the Danish prince, eager to see you again.
Summary: In which the building owner blackmails you into going on a date with his nephew… who turns out to be really cute???
Word Count: 3521
A/N: I feel like this title sounds kinda angsty, but I promise that this story is 100% fluff. I had a really good nap the other day, and from this nap, this lil scenario arose so.. yeah, hope you enjoy! :D Feel free to request!
Omg this scenario took so much longer to write than I expected, and it ended up so much longer than I thought it would oh ma lawwwwd. Well, I love Mark Lee, and hope you like this :)
“And here… is the kitchen! What do you think?”
You beamed at your brother, finding it cute how excited he was about the apartment. “It’s great bro, I’m so happy for you.”
He laughed and said, “Well, don’t be too happy yet. We still have to actually sign all the paperwork. There’s another person apparently coming down to look at it later, so fingers crossed they hate it!”
You couldn’t help but chuckle at his statement, and just as you were preparing a sarcastic comment to respond with, there was a knock at the door. You looked towards your brother, questioningly, to which he responded, “That’s probably the building owner.”
Your brother went to answer the front door, and you followed behind, low-key smoothing your shirt down, wanting to make a good first impression that could hopefully help your brother get the place. He greeted the owner, whose name seemed to be Minjoon, before introducing the two of you. You made sure to be extra nice, remembering all your manners and laughing at all the terrible jokes he made.
One thing you found out about Minjoon was that he really, really liked to talk. Each time you tried to push the conversation towards the direction of the contracts, Minjoon remembered another story that he just had to tell. You were getting used to his constant talking about himself, so needless to say, you were a little surprised when he asked you what grade you were in. “I’m a senior in high school,” you replied. He nodded thoughtfully, then sat up straighter, a much more serious look on his face.
“Here’s the thing, I like you guys. I really want to be able to give this apartment to you. However, I already told this person that he could take a look at this house. Since he is willing to pay me more for it, if he says yes to this place, he takes priority.”
Your brother chewed at his bottom lip, concern clearly painted over his features. You knew how much he wanted to finally move out of your parents’ basement, and he was really hopeful about this apartment. You let out a nervous breath as Minjoon continued:
“However, I think there’s a way that we can make that all.. go away.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, I have a nephew who is around Y/N’s age––sweet kid, a big looker––and I would like for her to go on a date with him. I’ve been bugging him about getting more involved with the ladies, but he keeps avoiding the topic. If not a date, he’s got to at least have some female friends.”
You couldn’t help but gape at the suggestion, disbelief flooding your body. Before you could respond, your brother stated “I’m sorry, but I really don’t believe my sister would feel comfortable with that situation.” You smiled at him gratefully, looking back at Minjoon to see what he would say.
“It seems I did not make myself clear. If Y/N does not go on a date with my nephew, you have no chance of getting this apartment.”
“I guess I’m not get––”
“I’ll do it.”
Your brother’s head whipped towards you, shocked at your sudden outburst. You gave him a reassuring smile, and whispered, “Don’t worry, it’s just one date.”
Needless to say, Minjoon was very happy. He gave you all of his nephew’s contact information, and told you when and where to meet him. Before you left, he reminded you that your brother’s apartment was still in his hands, and that if you did not show up to the date, your brother could say goodbye to any chance of getting an apartment any time soon.
As you left the complex, you turned towards your brother, who had been thanking you ever since you walked out the apartment door.
“You owe me bro.”
You stood outside the small cafe, nervously fidgeting with your hands. You felt terrible for judging before you met the guy, but the fact that his uncle had to blackmail you into going out with him had you a little worried. You took a deep breath before finally walking in, looking around the busy cafe for any sign of someone who was waiting for you. It took a while before you realized that he didn’t know what you looked like either, so you took out your phone and shot him a text.
You: Hello? ???: Hi… You: Um… I’m Y/N, the girl who you’re uncle wanted you to meet… ???: Oh, I’m really sorry about that. Are you here? You: Yeah, I’m at the front of the cafe.
Your eyes roamed around the room thoroughly, wondering which one of these customers would be the one you were meeting today. You chewed at your lip, your nerves taking over as you thought about what, or who, rather, was in store for you.
???: Look to your left.
Your head flew to the side, the sick feeling of anticipation growing in your stomach. You had no idea what to expect, and that was kind of scary for you. However, when your eyes landed on the blonde-haired boy in the glasses and the pink hoodie who was waving at you, you were more surprised than anything else.
He was cute. Scratch that, he was really cute. You walked over to him slowly, almost doubting that this was the person you were supposed to meet. He stood up as you got closer, giving you a bow that you returned. He motioned for you to sit across from him, and a moment of awkward silence passed between the two of you. Not being able to take it anymore, he tried to start a conversation.
“Um.. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t think you were going to show up today.”
You smiled, “Well, I’m a pretty good sister, so I’m trying to do whatever I can to get my brother into that apartment.”
He winced a bit at your statement, then moved his hand to rub the back of his neck sheepishly, “yeah, I’m really sorry about that. My uncle can be really crazy sometimes. This is not the first time he’s blackmailed someone into going on a date with me. I keep telling him to stop, but he won’t listen to me…”
You laughed, thankful that the awkward atmosphere was gone.
“By the way, I didn’t catch your name.”
“Oops, my bad. My name’s Mark… Mark Lee.”
“Well Mark, if you don’t mind me asking… why does your uncle feel the need to get dates for you? You definitely could get them yourself if you tried.”
Your hand flew to your mouth as your face flushed, shocked that you had let the compliment slip from your lips. His face too turned a rosy pink as he looked down at his clasped hands in embarrassment.
“Thank you for that, but it’s not because I can’t get dates… it’s because I don’t want to.”
Your eyebrow quirked up teasingly at his statement, questioning how he phrased his sentence. He responded by widening his eyes and shaking his head and hands rapidly before justifying himself:
“No! That’s not what I meant! I just meant that I’m not interested in dating any of the girls from my school!”
You couldn’t contain your laughter anymore as you watched the flustered boy struggle to find the right words. He was a little surprised at your sudden outburst, but soon realized that you were simply messing with him.
When you finally calmed down, you faced him again, genuine curiousity on your face:
“Why aren’t you interested in dating girls from your school?”
“Well, the girls from my school are all really rich and preppy… They always act like they’re entitled to everything, and that’s something that I just can’t stand.”
You nodded your head in understanding before asking another question: “I get that there are some people like that…all the girls though?”
He nodded, “In freshman year, there were still people who were nice and humble, but as we got older, more and more people started to become assholes.”
You broke out in a smile at his choice of words, and you could’ve sworn you saw a tinge of red on his cheeks. After a short moment, he cleared his throat and spoke again: “So do you want something to drink? My treat since my uncle basically forced you to come here.”
“Iced tea is fine, thanks, but I’m paying next time.”
He furrowed his brows, confusion written on his face, “Next time?”
You smiled at his CUTE reaction, “Yes, next time. You’re pretty okay Mark Lee, I think we’d be good friends.“
This time, you could clearly see the red on his cheeks. After a quick, “I’d like that,” he ran off to pay for the drinks, leaving you with an amused smile on your face.
“Yo, yo, yo, Mark Lee!” you yelled out playfully as he walked over to your table. He rolled his eyes at your loud greeting before sitting down across from you.
After your—surprisingly successful—date with him a few months back, the two of you became inseparable. His uncle was happy, which meant your brother was happy, which meant you were happy, and luckily, you had gained a new friend along the way. Mark Lee was literally the best friend you ever had: he was sweet, caring, funny, a little crazy, and most of all, he knew exactly what to do whenever you were stressed or sad or angry about something. So, it wasn’t too much of a surprise when you found yourself growing fond of the boy, developing more than just platonic feelings for him and his goofy smile. You felt your heartbeat quicken whenever he slung his arm around your shoulder and your breath caught in your throat whenever he laughed. It was really stressing you out, and Mark, being Mark, could totally tell.
You shook your head and blinked before finally responding, “Huh?”
Mark chuckled before pressing a finger against your head and giving it a light push.
“You zoned out dumbass. You’ve been really out of it lately…are you sure you’re okay?”
You nodded unconvincingly. The problem with Mark being your best friend was that you had no one else to go to to talk about your problems. That meant you had to keep everything bottled up inside, which you weren’t very good at dealing with, and that made you even more stressed out, and well… it just wasn’t great for you. So you decided to try to relieve some of your stress by striking up “theoretical” situations with Mark in hopes that his obliviousness—Thank God for that—would keep him from figuring out you were actually talking about you.
“Actually… well I’ve got a classmate in my homeroom and she’s been talking to me about a problem she’s been having…” you began.
Mark nodded, encouraging you to continue.
“It’s this classmate she has… they’ve been getting to be super close friends, and she’s starting to develop some more-than-friends feelings, if you know what I mean… And well, she’s so stressed out about it that it’s got me stressed out. What do you think I should tell her?”
You bit your lip, awaiting his answer. He hummed thoughtfully before responding: “Well, what’s keeping her from telling him?”
“She doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. They’ve got a good thing going right now.”
“Ah, I see. Well, that’s totally understandable, but if she really likes him, shouldn’t see tell him? He might like her too!” Mark beamed.
His bright optimism was so infectious that you found yourself smiling too. Unfortunately, if also caused you to realize that if your confession caused you to lose him, you wouldn’t be able to live. You needed Mark in your life, so you selfishly kept your feelings to yourself.
“Thanks Mark, I’ll tell her…”
“I’ll get it!” you screamed when the doorbell rang. You rushed downstairs, expecting the package you ordered a week ago, but instead, you found Mark Lee. Unable to contain your disappointment, you let a small pout form on you face as you moved aside to let him in.
“Yeah, and you don’t seem too happy about it.”
You shook your head before smiling brightly at him, “Sorry, I was just expecting my package to come today. But instead I got you,” you teased.
Mark stuck his tongue out at you before replying, “You love me.”
You laughed bitterly at his statement, him not knowing just how true it was. Just as the two of you were about to make your way upstairs, your parents came in the room.
“Mark!” They exclaimed excitedly. Ever since the two of you became friends, your parents have loved Mark. They thought he was incredibly kind and sweet, and they were right about that. They actually often told you how perfect of a boyfriend he would be, and would drop hints whenever he was around to embarrass you. It was terrible.
“Hi Mr. and Mrs. Y/L/N!”
“Well, you just keep getting more and more handsome every time I see you, doesn’t he Y/N?” your mother questioned.
“Mom~” you whined, your cheeks flushing a light pink.
“Okay, okay, well you kids have fun alright? We’ll be gone until tomorrow afternoon, so make sure you guys eat your meals and stay safe!”
You gave both of your parents quick hugs and kisses goodbye before dragging Mark up the stairs to your room. You jumped on the bed as soon as you entered, and Mark followed in suit after placing his bag in the corner of the room.
“So, what movie do you want to watch today?” you asked, having no clue yourself. After comfortably adjusting himself against the headboard, Mark simply shrugged, to which you responded with a light snort.
“I guess we’re scrolling through Netflix.”
After a good 20 minutes of browsing and being totally indecisive, you guys settled on watching “The BFG,” bringing both of you back to your childhood. Watching movies with Mark was basically just an excuse for the two of you to cuddle. He laid propped up against the pillows on your bed, and you snuggled close to him, head on his chest and his arm around your shoulders. It was a position perfectly comfortable for the both of you, but recently, it’s been difficult for you to just focus on the movies you watched. You could hear his heart beating steadily against his chest, and his slow, systematic breathing. You could feel his warmth against your cheek and smell the scent of his cologne off his shirt. You were completely encapsulated with thoughts of him that you didn’t even notice when your eyelids started fluttering close.
You woke up tangled up with Mark, closer than either of you had even been before. The two of you had fallen asleep together, something that you’d never done before, and during the night, you apparently did some serious cuddling. Your face was pressed in his neck, your lips just centimeters away from his collarbone. His chin rested on top of your head and his arms circled your waist, one hand resting on the small of your back and the other on your hip. Your own arms were wound around his waist, your hands coming into contact with his bare back, where his shirt had ridden up. Your bare legs were tangled between his, and you swore your body was on fire. When you finally had the courage to move, you looked up at his face only to find him dangerously close––and awake. He smiled smugly at you before whispering in his hoarse morning voice, “Morning, beautiful.”
You immediately felt your face heat up, and you quickly untangled yourself from him.
“I’m going to wash up,” you stated quickly, before walking to the bathroom and splashing cold water on your face.
Tears streamed down your cheek as you watched the last of the sun disappear along the horizon. Earlier that day, you had found out that your parents had gotten into a car crash, and your dad was still unconscious in the hospital. Your mom was recovering, so the doctors said that you couldn’t visit her until tomorrow. How could everything have gone so wrong so quickly?
Lost in your own thoughts, you didn’t notice a figure taking a seat beside you. He scooted closer to you until your shoulders were touching, and only then did you look up. Well, you could’ve guessed who it was: Mark Lee. As soon as your eyes met his, you broke down, grabbing fistfuls of his shirt and sobbing into his shoulder. He met you with open arms and placed gentle, reassuring kisses to the top of your head.
You don’t know how long you cried, but when you started getting dehydrated, Mark took you bye the hand and pulled you toward your house.
He gave you water and made you food, and he didn’t get upset or frustrated when you told him you weren’t hungry. He brought you upstairs and let you lay your head on his chest again, and you stayed their until you fell asleep, with him gently stroking your hair and humming sweet songs to you.
That was the day that you realized you really could not accept just being friends with Mark anymore.
A few days after Mark comforted you, your father woke up, leaving you happy and relieved. You spent all your free time visiting your parents, tending to their every need and making sure they were comfortable. That meant that for the past few days, you didn’t really get to see Mark, and you were starting to miss him a lot. You had already decided that you were going to confess to him, but you just didn’t know when.
When you mother and father were finally discharged from the hospital, you decided that it was time for you to face your fears and talk to Mark about your feelings.
You: Hey Mork Leeeeeee~~ Mork: Hey! Look whose alive :P You: Haha, very funny Mork: But seriously, how are your parents doing? You: Much better, thanks, they’re finally home, and the doctors cleared them for daily activity, so that’s a relief. Mork: Yes it is.. listen, if it’s okay with you, can we hang out today? You: Oh, did Markie-poo miss me? Mark: Yes I did, you dork. Now, meet you at the café in half an hour? You: See you there.
You took a deep breath. I guess this is it…
As you waited in front of the café, you remembered the first time that you stood there. You were even more nervous now than you were then. How in the hell were you going to do this? While you were in the midst of convincing yourself to turn around, run away, and never look back again, your phone rang, waking you up from your thoughts. It was Mark, and he was no doubt wondering where you were. Instead of picking up, you simply walked into the café and made your way to the table where the two of you always sat.
“Sorry I’m late, I was…daydreaming.”
You took a deep breath. It was now or never.”
“Uh… it was kinda about you.”
He nearly choked on his drink, looking at you with a shocked expression. His doe eyes had doubled in size, and you couldn’t help but think he looked incredibly cute like that. “M-Me?”
“You see, remember when I told you about that classmate of mine? Well–”
“You were talking about yourself, and your actually head over heels completely in love with me?”
It was now your turn to be surprised, “Wait Wha-How did you know?”
He chuckled before bringing his face close to yours.
“You’re pretty obvious, you know. I may be oblivious, but not even I’m that oblivious.”
You blushed hard before shyly asking, “Then why didn’t you say anything?”
Mark only grinned: “I wanted to make sure you were comfortable with it first before confessing. You obviously were still dealing with some problems, and I was willing to wait until you were ready for the next step.”
“Wow, what a sweetheart,” you teased, secretly thankful for his thoughtfulness.
“You know it. Well, now that we’ve both established that we like each other, I would like to officially ask you out on a date.”
You beamed brightly at him, “I’d love to.”
“Well, now that that’s out of the way, it’s time for me to do something I’ve been waiting a very long time to do.”
“And what’s that?”
He suddenly reached across the table, pulling your face closer to his own. You saw a devilish twinkle in his eyes before he pressed his lips on to yours, molding them together gently before separating. A stupid grin appeared on your face as you made the incredibly intelligent comment: “That was nice.”
He laughed wholeheartedly at you then placed a soft kiss on your cheek.

Head in his hands, Peter’s chest felt tighter than it ever had before. He could feel his heart, heavy as it was, beating slowly, reluctantly, behind his ribcage. The gentle shattering of it was all he knew how to feel at this point, and he figured the sheer pain was bound to crush him eventually, if it hadn’t already. He’d felt this agony before, twice in fact, but his identity as Spider-Man made him confident that as long as he continued to fight the way he did, he would be able to protect his loved ones for quite sometime, never having to go through this sort of suffering again.
Yet there he was, his head resting against the wall of his messy bedroom as he slumped against his bed with his eyes closed, wishing it was him that had almost bled out instead of you.
God, how he wished it had been him instead of you, the one good, pure, beautiful thing in his life. His heart was aching at the thought of you lying in that hospital bed instead of him, comatose for three days before you woke up, your ribs on the mend and twenty three stitches scarring your cheek. And it was his fault, all of it.
He wasn’t there to walk you home that night, the way he did every other night. If only he’d been a bit more stubborn, more determined to get to you. He did, in the end, but he hadn’t been fast enough. Not even nearly fast enough. He’d been two blocks from you when it happened. If only he had ran faster. He called you to let you know he was on his way, not to move until he was there because he was going to be there and he was going to walk you home no matter what even if it meant missing curfew- curfew didn’t matter to him that much as long as he knew you were safely sitting in your apartment.
“Hey my love,” he had greeted you, “I’m on my way. Don’t move until I get there. Please. Be safe, I love you. I’ll be there in five minutes.” You had picked up your phone to reply to the voicemail, but your phone ended up smashed on the ground before you could, knocked out of your hand. There was a tight grip on your hair, tied back in a ponytail because of the summer heat, and you barely had time to register what was happening.
Peter arrived three minutes after. He was confused. You always answered his calls back relatively quickly, and while he understood that sometimes you just forget or were busy, he was worried. It was ten o'clock at night, he knew you had your phone on you-
He stopped short when he saw your phone, open to his voicemail, lying there on the ground with the screen cracked and no sign of you anywhere. He could feel his blood running cold as he picked it up, staring around the empty street. Then, he heard the agonizing screams, exploding in his skull. And though each part of him was pleading to every higher power he could think of that it wasn’t, he knew it was you. He ran toward the sound, and he could feel his heartbeat in his throat and in his ears and in his head. He heard footsteps rounding hurriedly rounding a corner behind him but didn’t bother to look back. He didn’t give a shit about the attacker, not right now.
It was you that mattered. You, who he dropped to his knees beside. He cradled your head in his arms, the way he had done so many times before except this time the side of your face was gushing blood in a way he had never seen. “Y/N, Y/N, oh my god, oh my god,” his voice broke. “You’re gonna be okay. You’re gonna be fine. I swear, you’re gonna be okay, baby. I promise.”
“Peter? Oh, hi Peter,” you smiled weakly up at him, your eyes drifting between open and closed. “My- my head hurts, Peter, it hurts really bad-” You must’ve hit your head on the concrete.
“Just keep your eyes open, baby, okay, just keep them open for me.” He fumbled around for his cell phone, dialing 911 as quickly as his clumsy fingers could manage. He was still holding you in his arms, trying to quell the bleeding with a ripped part of his t-shirt but you were bleeding everywhere and it was so hard to keep up- “I have an emergency, please you need to get here as soon as possible please I have a person here who was attacked we’re on- Y/N? Baby, c’mon, c’mon- stay with me?” He repeated the address to the operator and hung up. “Stay with me, Y/N, please stay with me, don’t die on me, you can’t, don’t leave me, please.”
He didn’t know what else to do besides wait. He could hear the faintest sounds of the ambulance in the distance but he couldn’t hear you breathing and that was the only thing he wanted to hear. He gently shook your shoulders, his vision blurry, “C’mon, my love, please don’t leave me just yet- you’ve gotta stay with me, please, Y/N.” And he was crying, crying, crying into your hair and clutching you so tightly he was afraid of suffocating you. Your heartbeat was barely there. “You’re gonna be okay. You have to stay here.” The rest of the night was a blur from there. He rode in the ambulance to Jamaica Hospital, sat in the waiting room with tears streaming down his face and snapping at people who gave him pitying looks, even if they were trying to be sympathetic.
Aunt May arrived there, too, because Peter had been questioned by the police and they had called her to be there. They knew the Parkers. Uncle Ben had been attacked, too. When she got there, Peter had collapsed in her arms in the middle of the lobby, crying harder than she had ever seen, blood soaking through his shirt. Your parents got there next, your little brother so terrified at the sight of your boyfriend standing on wobbly legs. They told him that if Peter hadn’t found you, you might not have made it. That he saved you.
But as he walked into your hospital room hours later after your surgery, he felt like the most pathetic excuse for a hero the world has ever seen. He had never felt like less of a hero. What sort of savior was he, if you were lying there, eyes closed and hooked up to a heart monitor? What type of hero was that?
He wasn’t one. That was the end of that.
Peter hadn’t been to visit you since, not even when your brother had texted him that you were awake. He couldn’t. He didn’t deserve to. It should have been him. Never you. Everyone tried to convince him otherwise. Ned pleaded with him to visit, Michelle had confronted him in the middle of the cafeteria and made him cry, Flash told anyone who would listen that Peter was a terrible boyfriend- and Peter couldn’t bring himself to disagree. He just hung his head and accepted the torment and did everything in silence from then on. He kept his earbuds in for most of the day, just so he didn’t have to listen to anyone ask him about you.
“Honey, you know she’s asking for you,” May said, leaning against the doorframe of his room. He turned his head away. “You can’t hide from her, Peter. You love her. I know you blame yourself for this-” He didn’t reply, but he turned his music up louder and threw his comforter over himself.
She was right, as she usually was. He still didn’t want to listen. May sighed. He’d come around eventually. Peter felt a slight vibration next to him, opening his eyes to see a message from Happy.
Tony wants to see you. Now.
Peter texted back, I’m busy. Can’t.
Another text came in. He says it’s urgent.
With a groan, Peter got out of bed. His legs were shaking from lying down so long. He couldn’t imagine how it would feel for you once you were able to get out of bed. He locked his door so May couldn’t walk in and see that he had left. He put on his suit, slipping the mask over his face even though he knew he didn’t even deserve to hold the title of superhero right now. He knew he would meet Tony at the roof of Peter’s building, peeling the mask away from his face as he waited for him to arrive.
His Iron Man suited landed him behind with a soft thud. Peter didn’t look. “Are you really here or is it just the stupid suit again?” He asked, harsher than he meant to. The metal creaked.
“I’m here, kid,” Tony said, his hand resting on Peter’s shoulder when he came up behind him.
“Happy said you needed me. What is it?” Peter wanted to get right to the point so he could crawl back under his covers and listen to the saddest playlist he could find.
“You should really go visit Y/N.”
“Who told you about that?” He turned to look up at Mr. Stark, confusion flashing across his face. He brushed his hand off his shoulder. “I can’t, anyway.” Peter looked back toward the city, Manhattan just beyond reach.
“Your aunt called me. She thought you’d listen to me more than her. Which is wrong, by the way. She’s a very wonderful woman and you should listen to her often.” Tony was only joking, trying to get the kid to exhibit some sort of emotion other than sadness.
Peter glared. “Stop hitting on my aunt.” Well, now he was angry. Close enough. “I don’t want to visit Y/N, okay? It’s my fault she’s in there, my fault she almost died. If I had just gotten there sooner, this never would’ve happened. You should just take this suit away from me again, because I don’t deserve it. I’m an awful person. I’m not a hero.”
“Kid, you can’t save everyone. That’s part of the job. But one thing you did do was save Y/N. Even if you don’t think so. You think she’d be alive right now if you hadn’t found her? Probably not. You’re lucky you did. I know that she knows that, too. You can’t beat yourself up over this. Y/N is alive, Peter. You have to go and see for yourself.” Tony walked away, stepping back into his own suit. “No one blames you. So stop blaming yourself, and stop being so damn self deprecating. That’s my thing.”
He left Peter there, with his legs dangling off the edge of the building. Finally, he swung back down through his window, put on regular clothes and pulled sneakers onto his feet. He brushed his hair, he splashed cold water on his face. He unlocked his bedroom door and walked out into the living room where May was sitting on the couch with a book propped open on her lap.
Clearing his throat, Peter gave her a shaky smile. “Do I look okay?”
May clasped her hands together, beaming at her nephew. “You look great. Y/N will think so, too.” Peter nodded, walking over to give his aunt a kiss on the cheek.
He walked out of the apartment with his hands shoved in his pockets, got on the E train, and tried to remain calm. You’d been awake for nearly three days now, he should’ve been there sooner. A week in the hospital and Peter had only been there beside you when you were passed out, and even then, only once. He showed up at the hospital a good ten minutes before visiting hours were over, thank God. He would’ve stayed in the lobby all night if he had been forced to, but this made things so much easier.
Your door opened slowly, and you sat up in bed. Your family had just left a half hour ago, there was no way they were back yet. Then, you saw that familiar, hesitant stance, the messy honey colored hair, the Midtown sweatshirt that he practically lived in, and breathed a sigh of relief. “It’s about time, Parker.”
He shook his head as he laughed, sitting down at the chair next to your bed and taking it all in. You looked perfectly fine, healthy even, but you would have a scar marring the side of your face for the rest of your life and he knew there was a gash deep in your side, which was how you had almost died in the first place. He knew your two of your ribs had been practically kicked in and that you had bruises covering your torso. But you were still radiant, grinning at him. So happy that he was there.
“I know, I’m sorry,” he held out his hand, and you held it. “D’you hate me?”
“For what?” You furrowed your brow.
“For not getting there in time to walk you home.” He let out a long, slow breath, his voice hitching. “I- I should’ve ran to be with you. I knew something like this would happen and you almost died. I suck at everything. I even suck at the one thing I thought I was good at. I’m a shit boyfriend and a shit Spider-Man. Your parents kept telling me that I was a hero. But if I was, I would’ve gotten there in time to strangle whoever did this to you. This wouldn’t have happened to you at all if I was really a hero.”
He rubbed his eyes with his sweater sleeve. “I don’t deserve-”
Without thinking, you pressed your finger to his lips. “I never thought I would say this but Peter, my love, please shut up. Right now.” He gulped, then nodded. “You are worthy of a million great things. You deserve to be a hero, to be Spider-Man. If you weren’t, you wouldn’t have that suit that you put on every night. You wouldn’t go out and save people every day. You not only deserve to be a hero, but you are one. If not in your eyes, in mine.”
“No,” you said firmly. “You are a hero, Peter Parker. You saved my life. I don’t care what you think about yourself because that’s what I think. And I-” You stopped. You didn’t want him to think you were just saying it because he rescued you. That was the last thing you wanted. People said crazy things after they were saved by someone, and if he thought that was the case here, you’d feel awful.
“Y/N, you don’t have to say it…” He raised his hand to your face, bringing you closer to him. Your foreheads touched lightly and your eyes closed.
“I mean it, though.” You pressed a kiss to his lips, mumbling it against him, “I love you. I mean it. I love you and your heroism and your intelligence and your kindness and the way that you think you’re funny even though you’re not. I really love you.”
He grinned against your lips, a weight lifted off his shoulders. He felt feather light. He pulled away just slightly, so he could look at you as he said it. “I love you, too. More than anything. If you had died, I don’t know what I would have done. I would have been a wreck. Thank you for staying with me. Thank you for holding on. I love you.” Now that he had said the three words that set his mind spinning, he didn’t think he would ever stop saying.
“You wanna know how I held on?”
“I listened to the voice of my hero, of my Peter. I heard you.” You rest your head against your pillow. “I wasn’t about to leave you just yet. We still have a long way to go together.” You moved over, leaving room on the pillow for him. “There’s no room on the bed, can you just sleep on the pillow? I don’t want you to leave.”
“Of course.” He didn’t care that it’d be uncomfortable. “Anything for you.”
His heart soared when you squeezed his hand, saying quietly, “My hero.”
“Change your mind?” Alexei teases, only feeling a tiny bit worried. He doesn’t
think Kent will actually bail on him, now that they’re both in their suits and
the hall is surely packed with their families and teammates. Bittle would cry
if anything happened, Alexei thinks. And then skin both of them alive.
But then again, Alexei did see Runaway
Bride twice with Snowy, when he was first learning English and someone had
the brilliant idea that the best way to learn is to watch all the classic
romcoms. Snowy, it turns out, is a big fan of Richard Gere. Kent doesn’t look
like he’s ready to bolt, but he did seem skittish, and in the
movie, Julia Roberts had been very skittish.
“No, never,” Kent says, taking Alexei’s hands and rubbing his thumb over
Alexei’s palms. His hair is already a little mussed, the untamable cowlick
threatening to pop back up. “Not about you. I know I’m an ass about a lot of
things, but you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
“Good to know,” Alexei says, letting out a breath of relief. “You tell me now,
then what you say for vows?”
“Oh, God,” Kent laughs nervously. “Oh man. That’s—that’s the thing. The vows.
In front of a bunch of people. I could probably do it. Maybe. You wouldn’t
happen to be carrying Xanax on you?” He chuckles and scratches the back of his
neck, but his jaw drops when he sees Alexei rummage in his pockets. “Wait, I’m
just joking. I don’t actually—what the
hell is that?”

“Oh my God,” you groaned hitting the snooze button on your phone trying to catch another few minutes of sleep.
You nearly fell back asleep when you were startled out of it yet again by the same sound.
“Fine, I’m up,” you said defeatedly to no one but your phone.
You quickly went into the bathroom to get ready for your bright and early eight a.m run that you dreaded every night. But, being the stubborn and determined person you were, you decided to actually try and stick to this routine.
You pulled on a pair of black workout pants, a simple white tee shirt and runnings shoes before quickly grabbing your phone, a pair of headphones and your armband before heading out the door.
You were lucky enough to inherit an apartment right beside Central Park from your grandmother because it always put you in a better mood to see the different kinds of people.
The mothers with their children, people hurriedly making their way to work, teenagers on-route to school, the other joggers, the list goes on and on.
Slipping your phone into the pocket of your armband and hitting play on your playlist you put your headphones in and began to run.
You weren’t feeling particularly adventurous so you decided to stick to your usual route you were familiar with and headed down the path.
You were doing great and feeling great halfway through your run until your music unexpectedly stopped and your phone began buzzing against your arm.
Letting out a silent groan you kept on running while you tried to decline the call from your mother not wanting to lose the pace or rhythm you had created.
You were sure that this last tap would decline the phone call but before you knew it you had collided with something and fell to the ground with an ‘omf.’
“I’m so sorry, are you alright?” A male voice questioned as you lay on the ground trying to shield your eyes from the early morning sun.
“Yeah I’m fine I jus-holy shit you’re Captain America,” you gasped, still lying on the ground with the one and only Steve Rogers hovering over you.
“I prefer Steve,” he chuckled as he extended a hand to help you up which you graciously took.
“I can’t believe I just literally ran into Captain America,” you mumbled more so to yourself.
“It’s really my fault, I wasn’y paying attention to where I was going,” Steve chuckled almost nervously as his eyes met yours.
“Ah, me neither. I was trying to decline a call from my mother,” you laughed hoping to lighten the mood, “hope I didn’t hurt you,” you added jokingly as he chuckled, “it’ll take a lot more than that to hurt me, doll,” the use of the nickname made your heart flutter as you tried to look anywhere but his eyes.
“That makes me feel a little better,” you said with a smile, “well it was nice meeting you, uh,” he said before realising he didn’t catch your name, “[Y/N],” you filled in as he nodded.
“It was nice to meet you, [Y/N],” he said with a sweet smile, “you too,” you said quietly realising the amount of people that had turned their attention to your interaction with the Super Soldier.
“I-I should get going, sorry again,” you said quickly before fleeing away from a confused looking Steve.
It had been a whole week since your encounter with Steve and boy did you hate yourself for ending the conversation how you did.
Nonetheless you got up every morning at eight silently hoping that you would just catch a glimpse of Steve running the same path as you.
On the other hand you knew that he probably had already forgotten your name and probably the encounter.
You sighed, pushing all those thoughts out of your head as you made your way into Central Park. Stopping to choose a song in your playlist you also decided to take a different, lesser known route for today’s run.
When you stepped foot on the small path ahead of you, noticing there wasn’t a single person on it you decided it would be safe to run backwards for a short while deciding to strengthen some other muscles.
With your music blaring and your lack of attention you didn’t think to look back to double check the path and instead tripped on a rather large crevice in the path.
You closed your eyes expecting for your body to hit the floor any second but instead you were surprised with a pair of strong hands catching you by your arms.
Cautiously, your turned your head to the side to see who had just saved you, “we’ve got to stop meeting like this,” a cheeky Steve Rogers said as he still held you a few inches from the ground.
“Oh my God,” you grumbled to yourself as you stood to your feet, “well, I’ve made a fool out of myself twice in front of Captain America,” you laughed as you met his eyes, butterflies erupting in your stomach.
“Maybe its fate,” Steve chuckled with a shrug of his shoulders as you joined in with him, your smile ever leaving your face.
“So, I really thought I was the only one that knew about this trail,” he said crossing his muscular arms over his chest, “looks like you’re not the only one who knows the hidden gems in the city,” you said with a smirk as you met his gaze once again.
“I mean I really only discovered it by accident,” you said as you admired his physique somewhat subtly.
“Well, I, uh, know this great pizza place not to far from here if you ever, you know, uh, wanna grab some really good pizza,” Steve said stuttering over a few words making you chuckle at the man who’s confidence deflated within a matter of seconds.
“Steve Rogers are you asking me, a civilian, on a date?” You teased as a smile grew on his face, “I might be,” he smirked moving slightly closer to you, “it’s the least you could to for the man that just saved your life,” he winked as you stifled a laugh.
“How does dinner at seven sound to the man who just saved my life?” You asked before both you and Steve fell into laughter together.
“Shit, I’m so sorry.” I say whilst retracting my hand instantaneously, clearly showing my embarrassment caused by my own actions. Y/N’s cheek felt so soft and smooth when I ran my thumb across it. She was in her natural state and I can’t even try and lie to myself about the way she looks, because she’s beautiful.
“Thanks Jin.” She said as her cheeks turned a slight pink. I furrowed my eyebrows and wondered why she was thanking me.
“Hmm? Why are you thanking me?” I questioned her, confused and she let out a small laugh.
I’ve been working on this fic for like ever. and I never finished it. And tonight decided to. The *smutty* part isnt that good but whatever. I did it.
You x Jackson Wang (GOT7)
Feat best friend Bam Bam (non-sexual friendship)
*Disclaimer*: If you dont like smut dont read it. Just dont do it.
“You didn’t have to pay for my flight! What the hell Bam!”
You yelled on the phone with your best friend Bam Bam. You had discovered a notification in your email
that your round trip to Thailand was booked. Only you didn’t book anything yet.
“Just think of it as a late birthday present,” He said
laughing.” “I can afford it love.”
“Yeah but you know I’ve been saving up to come to Thailand!
I got the money silly.”
“Use it to go shopping!” He said, chuckling in the
phone. You hated when Bam Bam paid for
you. Especially because you work. Sure
he was your best friend and an idol, but you didn’t want to use him for his
money. Your eyes rolled. You wanted to make it up to him but had no idea how.
The boy had everything. He was the fashion king so you couldn’t buy him a new
outfit. He’s already ahead of the fashion game.

Dorian and Aelin burst into the small lively Irish pub. Well, “burst” was kind of a strong word, considering how bogged down they were by their huge backpacks. The two friends had decided to travel across Europe after their college graduation. It was supposed to be a group of them, but they’d lost Lys and Aedion back in Italy. Chaol was supposed to meet them in Dublin – but that was if they ever made it there. The huge storm had come out of nowhere, and their flight had been redirected. Aelin had insisted they try to catch a ferry to continue on to Dublin – but when the huge waves had almost flipped over the boat, she conceded, and they were dropped off on the beach in some other part of Ireland. Trudging up the long hill, they finally came to the bustling pub – the only awake part of the small sea town. Gasping for breath and dripping wet, they glanced around for an empty table in the crowded bar, and spotted a couple getting up in the corner. They quickly grabbed the table before anyone else had a chance, pulling the massive weights off of their backs and flopping into the hard wooden chairs.
They could feel the heat of the packed pub seeping into their bodies. Groups of people danced around, producing more and more warmth as they jumped and whirled to the tune of the lively reel. The band in the corner looked like they’d been playing for a while, empty beer bottles scattered around their feet as they played.
They took a few minutes to settle down – wringing the water out of their soaked shirts. Aelin was running a hand through her long blonde hair, trying to untangle the wet tresses, when Dorian shook his head at her like a dog, spraying water everywhere. It was at this moment that the waitress walked over, a hand on her hip and a smirk on her face as she watched Aelin smack him repeatedly.
She stopped quickly when she noticed the gorgeous girl. A tray was balanced against her hip, and she had a long, messy white braid over one shoulder, along with a wicked grin on her bright red lips. “Name’s Manon,” she drawled, her Irish accent washing over them. “What can I get you lot?”
Dorian cleared his throat, quickly running a hand through his hair in an effort to look presentable. He began to stumble over his words as his eyes ran over her lithe, muscular body. “I – uh – we – do you have any, um, menus?”
She snorted, raising an eyebrow at the boy. No – man. He was in his early twenties at least. Her eyes quickly flashed to his flexing muscles as he awkwardly scratched the back of his neck. He was broad, tall, and all around gorgeous. His bright blue eyes avoided hers as she watched him squirm under her golden gaze. “Aye, o’ course lad, would you like some gold rimmed plates, too? What d’you think this is? A palace, princeling?” She rolled her eyes, scowling at the gorgeous man. Why was it always the pretty ones that were like this?
“I’ll take a Guiness –”Aelin’s cool voice cut in, as Dorian struggled to regain his composure. “And some food. We’re both starving.”
“Aye, and soaked through the bone,” Manon mumbled, glancing at their wet clothes. She let out a deep sigh as she crossed her impossibly long legs. “I’ll see what the boys can dig up – kitchen’s supposed to close any minute now.”
The full weight of her golden gaze turned back to Dorian, a smirk on her face as she watched him startle under the attention. “Anything else I can get you, princeling?”
He cleared his throat and narrowed his stormy blue eyes as he forced a smirk on his face. “A double shot of whiskey, please.” He winked at her then, feeling the bravery re-enter his voice. “Need something to help warm me up.”
“Aye,” she smirked, “and some of that Irish courage will do you good, as well.”
With that, she turned, making her way back to the bar. He couldn’t help but stare at her enticing hips as they moved from side to side. Just like she’d wanted him to.
He was cute, this American boy. Kind of ridiculous, but cute.
Soon enough she was back with their drinks, shot Dorian some heated looks, and was off again. He wasn’t usually a one night stand kind of guy, in most situations. But for her? For her he’d make an exception. Miles of long legs were barely covered by a pair of ripped jean shorts. She had on a loose red t-shirt, further accenting her bright red lips. Yet, even in the simple outfit, she looked like a queen. His queen.
Aelin rolled her eyes watching Dorian eye-fuck the white-haired beauty. Aelin thought she was kind of a bitch, but Dorian never listened to her opinions on his conquests. He was usually more of a relationship guy, but she could tell that this time he just didn’t care. And she wasn’t drunk enough to put up with his shenanigans.
With a heavy sigh, she stood up from her seat to get another drink. Dorian barely paid her any attention as his eyes followed the waitress, watching her float from table to table, laughing heartily as she flirted with everyone, lighting up the room with her smile.
Aelin stepped up to the bar, the barkeep nowhere to be found. She eyed the empty seat in the corner and decided to take it right as she noticed someone else about to make a move. It’s not like Dorian was much better company. She ran a hand through her long blonde hair, still wet from the rain. She’d opted to keep her soaked sweatshirt on, wearing nothing but a small tank top underneath. But between the grossly wet fabric against her skin and the heat of the pub, she was leaning closer and closer to taking the damn thing off. Finally, she gave in, ripping off the soaking wet hoodie. And of course, this was the moment the barkeep chose to arrive.
Rowan Blackthorn couldn’t help but watch, shell-shocked, as the blonde beauty pulled the dark sweatshirt off of her curvy torso. As if the barely-there lace tank top wasn’t bad enough, it slowly slipped up her body as she struggled with the sweatshirt. And there, in that moment, he knew he was absolutely fucked. He cleared his throat as he stepped up across from her, averting his eyes.
“What can I get you, lass?” His voice was a soft sensual rumble, but she couldn’t really properly enjoy it in her struggle.
“Right now,” she grunted, “a hand would be nice.” He winced at the fact that he was completely and totally about to begin his descent into hell, and reached over to pull the girl’s sweatshirt off.
She was suddenly greeted by six feet and four inches of pure muscle. She wasn’t exactly short, but the bartender towered over her. His short white hair was cut close to his head. Gaelic tattoos trailed down half of his face and one of his arms,clearly showing off his heritage. His bright green eyes caught her gaze, and she found herself unable to look away. “Um, thanks,” she mumbled, reaching to grab the sweatshirt that he was holding out to her.
They stood there then, just like that, watching each other. He took in her wet blonde hair that fell just to her shoulders, and her tight light pink tank top. At least it wasn’t see-through. Then he would have definitely lost it.
“Y’know,” she teased, trying to lighten the mood, “normally I don’t let guys undress me until after I’ve learned their name.”
He snorted at that. “Is that all it takes with you, then?” Shit. He couldn’t stop himself. The words were already out, but he’d immediately regretted them. Well, that was that, he supposed.
She narrowed her eyes at the man. As pretty as he might be, she wouldn’t put up with any bullshit he was presenting her with. “Give me another Guiness,” she snapped. He raised an eyebrow before turning around to grab it without another word. He pulled the cap of the beer straight off with his hands, the asshole. The muscles in his arms tensed and relieved as he accomplished it, and Aelin just about died.
It was in this moment that Manon sauntered over, two plates in hand. “Are you goin’ back t’yer boyfriend there, or are you stayin’ over here?”
“He’s not my boyfriend,” she scowled, reaching out a hand for one of the two plates. “On a good day he’s my friend. Right now though, he’s my pain in the ass. So yeah, I’ll eat over here.” Manon smirked as Aelin finally accepted the Guiness Rowan had been holding out.
She walked away, an extra bounce in her step as she once again made her way to Dorian. Aelin rolled her eyes at the predatory smirk that was growing on her friend’s face. It looked like he’d found his footing fast enough. She turned back to her beer, and the asshole of a bartender.
He’d begun to clean a glass, obviously trying to look anywhere but at her. She scoffed, rolling her eyes, and turning her attention to her meal.
Rowan was a fucking idiot. Yeah, Rowan. Great idea. Get the gorgeous girl to like you by insulting her. That always works. Then again, he was sort of out of practice. And more than that, she was only here for, what, a day? Two maximum? He was willing to bet the storm had rolled her in, and she’d be leaving as soon as it was over. Slowly shaking his head, he sighed. Rowan didn’t have time for more attachments to beautiful women who were just going to leave. So maybe being an asshole was a good idea.
Except then he heard the moan slip out of her mouth. And every logical thought left his head as his entire body stiffened at the sound.
“God,” she sighed, “who the hell is your cook, and can I marry him?”
Rowan cleared his throat, straining to talk as her husky voice just played over and over in his head.
He was in such deep, unending shit.
“We have two cooks,” he grumbled, trying to prevent his voice from cracking as he watched her lick her fingers, unable to look away.
His words ran away from him as he watched her dip her soda bread in the Irish Stew and take a large bite, letting out another long, low moan. “Please tell me whichever one made this stew is single.”
A low growl built in his throat, the sight much too sensual to bear. That moan. However good that stew was, it couldn’t taste nearly as delicious as he was sure she did. What he wouldn’t give to have her thighs around his head, how she would moan then –
He grit his teeth, shook his head, and forced himself to look away, discretely adjusting his pants as he once again tried and failed to regain his composure. At the sound of bickering voices coming up behind him, Rowan let out a small sigh of relief. Saved by the devils.
“Fenrys, Connal!” He called behind him, welcoming the distraction. And then he remembered what she was wearing. And that he’d been an asshole. And that she had wanted to marry one of the two idiots. And suddenly regretted everything. “You have an admirer,” he ground out. He hesitated, cautiously glancing at Aelin once again as she slowly enjoyed the bread, her eyes closed and a soft smile on her face. He began to smile as well, and then stopped, scowling instead. Remember. Lyria. With that thought in his head, he stormed down the walkway behind bar to go pour some other drinks.
Aelin opened her eyes at the sound of the barkeep stomping away. Her eyes were quickly drawn to the tightness of his pants against what she assumed was his equally tight ass. Dear god. She quickly looked away, chastising herself. She shouldn’t pine after what she knew she couldn’t have. She didn’t even know his name.
It was then that she found the twins stepping up to her behind the bar. Both were well-built, with gorgeous dark eyes, and deep tans to their skin. They seemed older than the barkeep. The one on the left was easily the most beautiful man she’d seen in her life. He had long golden hair and a mischievous grin on his lips, easily accompanying his onyx eyes that held her favorite kind of sinful promises. The other was just as beautiful, though with long dark hair, and thoughtful dark eyes. He seemed calmer – more melancholy in a way. The dark to the other’s light. Though for some reason, neither could compare to the bartending buzzard.
She took a sip of her beer and grinned at the twins who were eyeing her just the same. The blond was unashamedly appreciating her figure under the tank top, offering her a wolfish grin, hinting that cooking wasn’t the only thing he was good at doing with his hands. Meanwhile the dark-haired twin simply stepped back, leaning against the bar and rolling his eyes at his brother’s behavior.
“Name’s Fenrys,” the blond purred, holding out a large hand for her to shake. She took it slowly, feeling the calluses in his palm as her eyes met the heat in his.
“Aelin.” She smiled coolly, dropping his hand and returning to the stew, feigning aloofness. She could eat politely when she wanted to. And now that the beautiful barkeep wasn’t around, she had no reason not to. She almost laughed thinking back to his attempts at discretely readjusting his pants. As though his lust for her wasn’t entirely obvious. I hope you hate every minute of it, she thought, glaring at his gorgeous broad back.
“So,” Fenrys drawled, dragging her attention back to him. “Is our dear cousin Rowan treating you well? Irish hospitality and all that?”
Rowan. Gorgeous name for a gorgeous man. Her eyes followed him as he poured out shots for a group of boys who looked just barely legal. Then she dragged them back to Fenrys, and lifted one shoulder in a lazy shrug, her face entirely blank. “Well enough, I suppose.” She took another small bite of the stew, even though all she really wanted was to devour it.
“You know,” Fenrys murmured, his fingers lightly playing with the tips of hers, “I could certainly treat you very well, if you’d let me.”
She drew her hand away from his and placed it under her chin, raising a single eyebrow at his forwardness.
“Since I’m not a dog, I doubt you’ll be surprised to hear I don’t respond well to treats. Though since I’m not entirely certain you’re not a dog, unless you’d like me to rip off your balls so you can play fetch, I suggest you leave me alone.”
Connall barked out a laugh as Fenrys staggered back, an incredulous look on his face. A surprised laugh escaped his lips as he stepped away, reaching for the whiskey and mumbling to himself about crazy American women.
It was at this moment that Rowan walked back over, an aggravated look on his face. He should’ve been relieved that she’d probably already agreed to sleep with Fenrys, but for whatever reason, all he felt was a quiet stifling rage. His shoulder rammed into his cousin’s as he passed by him, stepping up next to Connall.
“Congratulations,” Connall grinned at her, “it’s not often a lass sends my brother off with his tail between his legs.” The two chuckled at the joke between them, Aelin finally smiling again as Rowan stood there, confused.
“What happened to your betrothed?” He bit out, defensive, not allowing himself to hope for what was too good to be true.
Aeliln’s smile turned sensual as her eyes once again roamed over his muscular frame. The heat in them almost burned him as they finally met his once again. “Turns out he wasn’t my type. Too easy.” A smirk spread on her lips as Rowan flinched. Connall chuckled again and began to walk away, clapping Rowan on the shoulder. “This one’s all yours, cousin. Good luck.” He winked at him and continued into the kitchen, finally ready to clean up for the night.
She took a few more bites of her stew, and Rowan went back to methodically cleaning his bar.
He wished he could say he’d forgotten she was there. But he hadn’t. Even with his back turned to her, he could feel her behind him, burning him with her gaze, and then it was almost as if her moans were ringing in his ears again. With a low groan, he wiped down the bar harder, angrily scrubbing.
A mischievous grin stretched across her lips, entirely aware of the affect she had on him. He’s going to sleep with me tonight, and he’s going to like it. And then we’ll see who’s the easy one. She ignored the small voice in her head that pointed out the fact that she would no doubt more than like it as well.
“So, Rowan,” she purred, placing both elbows on the bar and leaning her chin on her intertwined fingers, “tell me about yourself.”
