Your heart was pounding profusely, as you held your gaze on the screen.
It only took a few minutes before you got a response, and once you did, you were beyond mortified. Frantically, you went back to your Instagram and found the comment Bonnie left on your picture. She had given you her number, but you accidentally mixed up the last two numbers.
Which brought you here.
Looking at the cute little selfie you received, you couldn’t believe your eyes. Not only did you text the wrong number, but you texted Jensen freaking Ackles. The actor you had crushed on for years.
You texted back the emoji, not knowing what to say. And as the seconds passed, it didn’t take long for you to get another reply.
‘Isn’t it a little late for a bath? I mean, shouldn’t you be in bed? Lol.'
You let out a breath you didn’t realize you were holding. This was so surreal.
How did you manage to text your celebrity crush, was beyond anything you could imagine.
For a moment, you thought you should just apologize and then throw your phone and pretend it never happened, but then you decided to continue the conversation with him. I mean, it’s not everyday you get to talk to Jensen.
'It’s never too late for a bubble bath, especially when there’s wine. But what about you? Why aren’t you in bed?'
Suddenly, you felt a little flirtatious. Maybe it was the alcohol. Whatever it was, you didn’t seem to mind.
Taking a sip of your wine, you waited for his response. Thinking of a million things all at once. You had to pinch yourself to see if you were dreaming.
'Alcohol makes everything better. 😉 I can’t sleep. My name is Jensen by the way.'
And just like that, you two were texting back and forth for what seemed like forever.
You talked about work and movies and basically everything you could think of. You also talked about your job and the fact that you were a fan of his show. Even when you were done with the bath and now snuggled up in bed.
Somehow, you were both feeling something between you two. Feeling a pull that made you want to keep the conversation going even though you two had only talked this one time. Like two close friends catching up.
But then you saw the time, and suddenly were brought back to reality. You couldn’t believe you were texting him for three hours straight!
'Damn, it’s super late!’ You texted Jensen.
'Didn’t know we were talking for that long. Lol. Guess that happens when you’re having fun. 😉'
You felt your stomach flutter. Giving you a warm sensation throughout your body.
'Well, I better get some sleep. Have another long day tomorrow.'
Once you sent that text, you were a bit bummed. Not wanting it to end, but you were fighting your eyes to stay open.
'Hey…there’s something I want to ask you before you go.’ He replied.
You were a bit hesitant, but curious.
Those three dots appeared on the screen, making you hold your breath with anticipation.
'Can you send a selfie? Want to put a face to the legs. Lol'
And just like that, you felt nervous. Nauseas even. You were always insecure, but having Jensen ask for a picture, especially without makeup, you were scared. Scared of what he might think. Or say.
'Please?’ You received another text.
You let out a sigh, and caved. Holding the blanket close to you, you snapped a quick selfie. The flash from your phone, made your eyes glossy. You were laying on your side, with your hair laid across your pillow and a soft smile that seemed shy yet inviting.
But you sent the picture before you could even talk yourself out of it.
Three dots on the screen, came and gone.
Suddenly you panicked. Maybe he didn’t like the picture? Or maybe he didn’t think you were pretty? Whatever it was, you were now regretting ever sending him the picture. Wishing you never even sent the first text to begin with.
You locked your phone and closed your eyes, wincing at the thoughts of what you imagined was going through his head. Until your phone vibrated.
'Fuck, you’re beautiful.'
Your lips curved into a cheeky grin, and a squeal escaped from you. Though you wanted to keep talking, you also wanted to play it cool.
'Well I enjoyed our conversation. It was fun.'
'Me too. I haven’t had that much fun talking to anyone in a long time. So thank you.'
'Good night, Jensen.'
'Good night, sweet heart. Hopefully next time we will talk on the phone instead of this texting crap. I hate texting. lol.'
Your smile felt like it curved even more. But you were sure it wasn’t even possible. Jensen Ackles wanted to talk to you again. But this time, you would hear his deep, rough voice. It made your stomach flutter from just the thought.
'Lol, maybe. If you’re lucky 😉 now go to sleep Mr. Ackles. It’s passed your bed time.'
'Yes ma'am. Good night.’
