pairing: rocky X reader
You roommate, Rocky, arrived home earlier than expected. When he opened the door, you were laying on the couch, reading a book.
“Why are you so early today?” You asked casually, while flipping through your book.
“Practice ended early. Should I make us dinner?” Upon hearing the word ‘dinner’, you immediately shot up and nodded your head violently at him. He chuckled at you and immediately started taking out the ingredients.
“Need some help?” You asked while watching him do his work. Normally he wasn’t that good at cooking, judging from when he last tried to cook ramen but the noodles got burnt.
Rocky accepted your help and proceeded to read a recipe from online. As he was reading out some instructions on how to cook pasta, you couldn’t help but admire how he looks in an apron. The apron had pink polka dots on it and had a rose embroidered onto the front.
You remember that when you two went shopping for household supplies, you were reluctant to buy the apron at first.
“Cmon’ it’ll be cute when I wear it to cook stuff!”
“Oh no, please don’t cook, remember your ramen-” Rocky playfully used the apron to whack your head then tossed it into the shopping cart.
“Earth to (Y/N)??” Rocky was waving his phone in front of your face, which caused you to snap out of your flashback.
“Uh, yeah! Sounds great!”
“I asked you if we had any cheese.” He was teasingly smiling at you, knowing fully well that you weren’t paying any attention at all. Ugh, you hated it whenever he smiled. It caused a weird chemical reaction in your stomach that made you so embarrassed but love struck too.
“I know I’m handsome but let’s try to pay attention, okay m’am?”
“Yes~” You obeyed but then went back to staring at his face. His eyebrows were so nice, and his ash brown hair was so cute too. Most importantly was the way he cutely grinned at you whenever he teased you or when he got protective over you quite easily. He’s the quiet and shy type, so it was meaningful whenever he showed emotion.
It breaks your heart a little whenever you fangirl over him since you two were simply just friends. People would often compliment you two and make remarks like “You two are such a cute couple” which makes you really embarrassed (although you secretly enjoyed it) and makes Rocky flustered.
Although you threw multiple hints at him that you had a crush on him, you were too cowardly to actually say anything.
“(Y/N), can you hand me the milk?”
“Sure.” You sighed and went to the fridge to and retrieved it. When you came back you saw that Rocky was struggling with mixing.
“Here,” you said as you put your arms around his so your hands were above his, guiding him with your movements. “Make sure you thoroughly mix the cheese and the spices.”
“U-uh, y-yeah. Thanks.” Rocky finally sputtered when you let go. Let’s just say that you may or may not have purposely done that to fluster him.
Later on when you two were pouring the sauce over the noodles, the pot sort of touched your finger which stung a lot. “Ow!” You yelped as you quickly examined your hand. It was only burnt slightly.
“Oh my god, are you okay?” Rocky asks while grabbing your hand to investigate it for any harm. His contact with your hand made you want to explode right there, but you tried to keep calm. As he ran his fingertips gently over your burn, it made you flinch a little.
“Ah, sorry. You need to be more careful…”
“I’m fine… let’s just eat this thing already!”
Rocky doubtfully let go of your hand and served the dishes to the table. The pasta looked absolutely DELICIOUS. Cheese was sprinkled onto the noodles with parsley to decorate it. After taking a couple pictures of it, Rocky held out a piece of the pasta on his fork to you.
Gladly, you opened your mouth to grant his offer, but he swerved the fork and put it in his mouth instead.
“Delicious!” He exclaimed while holding up a thumbs-up. He laughed playfully when you just rolled your eyes at him and cursed at him under your breath.
After a few hours, it was finally nighttime. You were dressed in a nightgown and you were all washed up. When you entered Rocky’s bedroom, you found him laying still with eyes open on his bed. The lights were turned off but his night light which was in the shape of a star was on.
“Goodnight Rocky,” you gently said.
“I can’t fall asleep,” he whispered back. You sat down on his bed next to him while playing with his hair.
“I don’t know.” He faces you and calmly takes your hand and holds it against his chest.
“Rocky, what are you-”
“Can you sleep with me? Just tonight?”
You quickly stood up, “W-what?”
“Not in that way… I just want some company.”
You pondered over it, but you felt bad for him so you laid down next to him anyways. It was comfortable.
Unexpectedly, he wrapped his arms around you tightly. Your face was snuggled into his chest as you hear his heart beating loudly.
