Lin popped his head into your dressing room. “(Y/N), you’re on tonight!” he said excitedly. You rolled your eyes.
“I’m on every night, Lin.”
“No,” he shook his head, “I mean you’re on as Angelica! Renee couldn’t make it.” You froze and felt your heartbeat quicken.
“Shit.” He laughed and rolled his eyes.
“You’ll be fine!” He yelled as he walked away.
“Lin? Get back here!” You said, panicked, but he didn’t turn back.
You spent the next couple hours stressing, half hoping something would happen so that you wouldn’t have to preform. Maybe you could get hit my a car? Or suddenly be very ill? You were part of the ensemble and just that, but this evening were going to play Angelica Schuyler. You weren’t ready.
When Lin asked you a month ago if you were willing to learn the part so that you could step in instead of Renee if there was such a need, you nearly declined. You weren’t good with having the spotlight on you. As an ensemble member, you were part of a group and no one ever concentrated on just you. You were going to apologise and say that you weren’t able to do it, but then Lin smiled and pulled those cute puppy eyes and started talking about how you would be amazing and you had grudgingly agreed.
It was because of that stupid crush. When you first met him, you knew you would immediately be friends. He had an amazing energy in him and always made you laugh and feel extremely happy. You had similar interests and quickly grew to know each other really well. It was a couple months after you started performing when you realised you had a crush on him. You really couldn’t help it, he was perfect. Smart, handsome, witty, funny.
You groaned into your arms as you lay on the couch of the ‘chill room’.
“I’m gonna fuck this up.” you said and heard someone behind you laughing.
“Shut up Daveed.” You grumbled and sat up.
“Come on (Y/N), you’re gonna be great. Seriously? What’s with the self doubt?” He asked, sitting next to you and nearly squashing you.
“I don’t like being centre stage.”
“But don’t you want to have a chance to flirt with Lin?” You elbowed him hard. “What? I know you have a crush on him, you’re kinda obvious sometimes. He likes you too you know?”
“Ha ha, yeah right.” You scoffed, but smiled. Daveed was a good friend.
“(Y/N)?” You heard Lin calling out, probably to tell you to get ready and give you a pep talk. You turned to Daveed with tired eyes.
“Gotta go.” You stood up to leave but Daveed grabbed your arm to stop you, his eyes glinting.
“I’ll show you he likes you.” He tugged on your sleeve and brought you to him. He placed a hand on your neck and moved towards you, hovering just centimetres above your lips, silently asking for your permission. You nodded, unsure and suddenly he was kissing you passionately.
“(Y/N)?” Lin entered the room and you immediately turned around to him.
“Sorry.” He stuttered, red as a beet, looking unsure and maybe you were imagining it, but a little sad? “I, um… I’ll see you later.” He quickly walked out and you looked at Daveed, who was smirking. You pushed him away.
“Talk to the guy. You two need to get together.” He got up to go.
“Hey, you don’t get to just walk away!” You called after him and he laughed.
“You’ll do great as Angelica, stop stressing. Now go find Lin.” He left.
You had half an hour before the show started and decided it would be better to talk to Lin sooner than later. You found him in his dressing room, going through some papers.
“Hey, am I interrupting?” You asked, knocking on the door.
“Just looking at some fanart.” He said, not meeting your eye.
“You and Daveed, huh?” He interrupted you with a smile, which could have passed as natural, had you not known him so well.
“There’s no me and Daveed Lin. He wanted to rile you up and kissed me when he heard you coming.” You shuffled awkwardly. “Just… wanted you to know that.” There was an awkward silence and you turned around to leave. “I don’t even know why I’m telling you this. I’m just gonna-“
“Good.” He met your eye. “I… it’s good that you two aren’t together.”
“15 minutes till places.” You heard over the comm and hesitated.
“I gotta go get ready, talk to you later?” You didn’t want to leave like this but the both of you needed to get into costumes.
“Yeah, good luck.” He smiled fully and went up to hug you. “You’ll be great.”
The show was spectacular and you didn’t mess anything up. When you finished, you were greeted by a standing ovation. As you exited the stage, you were immediately swept up by your cast mates congratulating you.
You quickly changed into normal clothes and made your way to Lin’s dressing room. You met Jonathan on your way and raised your eyebrows.
“Giving you some space.” He winked and you smiled. You entered the room and was met by Lin in a t-shirt and Hamilton’s pants.
“Hi.” You said and sat down in one of the chairs. “You were great today.”
“Me? I was nothing compared to you, you were amazing!” He exclaimed.
“Thanks. I guess we haven’t finished the conversation from before?” You said, not quite sure of the situation. He laughed.
“Yes.” He stood in front of you. “(Y/N). I really like you. Would you like to go out on a date with me sometime?” Despite his confident voice, you could see he was nervous. He was wringing his hands and looking down at his feet. “I mean, we can also forget that this ever happened, I don’t want to make things awkward.”
“Lin.” He looked up at you. “I really like you too.”
Later on, you got a text from Daveed.
Are you two banging yet, or do you want me to help with that? ;)
