When’s The Wedding? / Conor Maynard
Request: Can you do a conor imagine where he goes to the readers annual family dinner and they’re being really cute in private and their family tease them?
“Conor, babe, are you almost ready?” You asked, looking at your reflection on your full-length mirror.
“What shirt?” He asked, walking back into your shared bedroom.
You looked at the two shirts on his hands and pointed at the white one. He put it on quickly and you helped with the buttons, kissing his lips softly once you were finished.
“You really don’t have to go, you can go out with the boys.” You smiled.
“I missed it last year, they’re going to think I’m a bad boyfriend if I don’t go to this one.”
“You look gorgeous, by the way.” He said as you were applying perfume to yourself.
You smiled at him through the mirror. “So do you. Do you have everything ready? Remember we’re staying at my parent’s for two days.”
“Yep, I know. Everything’s in the car, don’t worry.” He said, as you both started walking towards your front door. “Do you want me to drive?”
You nodded. “Please.”
Three hours later, you were entering your hometown, memories flooding your mind as you drove through the streets you had walked along thousands of times, for years. You didn’t get to go back as much as you wanted because you and Conor seemed to always be too busy, but once a year, you left a few days free of any activity for one special thing: the annual dinner. You never missed one and you weren’t planning on doing it any time soon, either.
It was something you had done your whole life, and even though some people may find it a bit tedious to sit at a table with your whole family, you absolutely loved it. You were always close to your family, even though it was a big one, you were all close and loved each other. There just was something about that night that always felt special, maybe it was your grandparents seeing all their sons, daughters and grandchildren all together or being able to see how everyone is building their lives year by year.
Two years ago, you decided to invite your boyfriend, Conor, to one and loved seeing him getting on so well with your family, it was like he became a part of it that night. Last year though, unluckily he couldn’t go because he was in America but to your surprise, everybody asked why he hadn’t come and the thought of your family caring so much for him warmed your heart. You were glad they loved him so much, because even from the start of your relationship, you knew you were going to fall for him, hard. And you did. You both did.
“Babe, we’re here.” Conor said as he parked the car, snapping you out of your thoughts. “Are you okay?” He asked, turning to you a bit.
“Yes.” You smiled. “Let’s go, I wanna see everyone already.” You said excitedly, making him chuckle.
“Well go on, I’m gonna get our things.” He kissed your cheek.
You got out of the car, running towards your parent’s house front door, knocking on it loudly out of pure excitement. Your mum was quick to open it and engulfing you in a tight hug and when she let go, you were quickly wrapped in your dad’s arms.
“How are you?” You asked them, letting go of your dad.
“We’re good, and you? Where’s Conor?” Your mum asked, her face radiating happiness.
“I’m here!” He answered, going to hug your mum and shaking hands with your dad.
“We’re good, too.” You smiled, as Conor placed his hand on your back.
“Well, come on. Everybody’s in the back.” Your dad said, and you nodded.
“We’re just gonna get our stuff to my room, first.”
Grabbing one of the bags Conor left on the floor by his feet, you started walking up the stairs, him following close behind. Once in your room you left the things on the bed and turned to look at him, a smile on your face as you caught him looking at himself in your old mirror. You walked to him and hugged him from behind, going on your tip toes to let your head rest on his shoulder so you could watch him through the mirror.
“Are you sure I look fine?” He asked. “Like, it’s stupid that I’m a bit worried because I already know them but, I don’t know.”
“You worry because you care, it’s okay.” You kissed his shoulder before standing in front of him. “You look fantastic, babe. Really, really handsome.” You pecked his lips.
Lacing your fingers with his you walked to the back yard, where your whole family cheered to say hi when they saw you two, and after greeting everyone and catching up a little bit with your cousins, you and Conor sat down at a little table with some of your uncles and aunts.
You smiled, watching Conor talk with your uncle about god knows what, seeing how he would listen carefully to what he was saying before answering with a smile or laughing, and even though he was almost turned all the way towards your uncle, his hand was on your thigh, his thumb drawing invisible shapes on it every now and then.
“That, right in your eyes, is a look of pure love, dear.” Your aunt said, leaning in to say it to your ear.
“Sometimes I just look at him and just think about how much I love him, is that weird?” You asked, making her laugh as she shook her head lightly.
“Not at all, sweetie. Happens to me all the time.” She smiled. “It’s like on a daily basis you don’t think of how much you love him and then when you realize is like, wow, I love this guy way more than I thought.”
“Exactly.” You laughed.
“Everyone, dinner’s ready!” Your mum yelled, taking some plates to the dinner table in the middle of the garden.
It took you all a few minutes to settle down, you were quite a few people and sitting almost seven children down for more than five seconds was quite the challenge, but somehow you managed to do it, and started eating.
“Do you want some of this, Rosie?” You heard Conor say, and you looked at him, only to find that your four year old niece was sitting comfortably in his lap.
“Yes, please.” She nodded.
“Rosie, come here, let Conor eat.” Your brother said.
“Oh, no. It’s okay, she isn’t bothering at all.” He answered quickly, making you smile.
“So Y/N, Conor, when’s the wedding?” Your other brother asked.
“What wedding?” You asked, confused.
“Yours, of course.” He answered and you blushed.
“Oh, I can just imagine my little girl walking down the aisle in a white dress, you’d look so beautiful. You’d make a gorgeous bride, honey?” Your mum said dreamily.
“Mum, please!” You said, not daring to look at Conor. “It’s too soon.”
“I proposed to your grandma after less than a year together, sweetheart. It’s love, it’s never too soon.” Your grandpa said, smiling. “Besides, I want to be there on your wedding day, and dance with you.”
You smiled and looked at Conor, who was smiling. He looked at you and you mouthed ‘sorry’ to him but he just shook his head and squeezed your hand a bit, letting you know it was okay.
“Yeah man, you just gotta pop the question.” Your brother said, looking at Conor.
You were sure you were as red as a tomato, how could you not be? You never really talked about the future with Conor, only once, and even though you were sure that you wanted to be with him for as long as you could, you didn’t know what he thought, so when he answered your brother you were surprised, his words making you melt inside completely.
“I will do it,” He smiled “I’m just having a hard time picking the ring.” He finished.
Hours later, you were both changing onto your pajamas, ready to go to bed. And even though you were tired, your mind was racing, his words playing over and over in your head. You brushed your teeth and got into bed, your head finding its usual place on Conor’s bare chest.
“Is it true?” You asked. “That you’re trying to pick a ring?” He hummed.
“I wouldn’t lie to your family.” He smiled. “I know I’m not supposed to tell you, but the words just flew out of my mouth.”
“Do you really want to spend the rest of my life with me?” You asked in awe.
“Can’t see myself with anyone else.” He kissed the top of your head. “Do you?”
“Of course.” You smiled. “Wait, this isn’t you proposing, right?” He laughed.
“No, I want it to be more special and something we won’t forget. I’m not gonna tell you when I plan on doing it.” You nodded. “So, we’re gonna get married, have an amazing honeymoon, have amazing sex,” You laughed “ have kids in a few years and grow old together, doesn’t sound bad, huh?”
“Not at all.” You kissed him. “Specially not the sex part.”
“Hmm, I know you would like that part, baby.” He smiled.
