OMG 18? Like shawn is crying and y/n comforts him????? Ahhhh im already dying!
“it’s okay to cry…”
lately things have been hard for shawn. he’s been getting frustrated with everything and he’s just been over all stressed out. you weren’t really sure what was causing him stress, he’s refused to tell you anything. every time you asked, he answered with a simple “i’m fine.” and walked into his office.
you thought maybe it was something you did, but you couldn’t recall doing anything to possibly upset him. maybe it was work again, he had a new tour coming up and he just released new music.
he came home from the studio about an hour ago at a late hour, locking himself in his music room/office and he hasn’t come out since.
deciding you’ve had enough, you get up from your shared bed, wrapped a blanket around you, and went to find him. you knocked first, but after not receiving an answer, you barged in.
you found your boyfriend staring at his computer, with tears falling down his face. your heart broke at the sight. he noticed you as soon as you walked in, and quickly wiped his tears away.
“y/n, i thought you were sleeping. it’s late, you should rest.”
you sighed, “i could say the same to you shawn.”
you stood behind him, starting to massage his shoulders and back. he sighed contently, “that feels nice.”
you noticed he had about 15 tabs open on his computer and a massive stack of paperwork on the desk.
“shawn, what’s up?”
he takes one more look at his computer, his eyes already starting to tear up again.
“hey,” you said soothingly as he pulled you onto his lap. “it’s okay to cry.”
he wrapped his arms around you, nuzzling his face into your neck. you felt your shirt slowly becoming damp from his tears. you continued to rub his back as he cried, you weren’t sure what to say but you wanted to let him know you were there.
“there’s just so much to do in so little time,” he sobbed. “everyone is going to be disappointed in me. i feel so alone, nobody understands how much pressure is on me right now. i can’t take it anymore y/n.”
“nobody is going to be disappointed in you shawn, the fans will understand and so will everyone else. you’re not alone, you’ve got so many great people supporting you. i know there’s a lot of pressure with the new song, but all that matters is what you think and what the fans think, right? and they love it.”
you knew he wanted everything to be perfect for his fans, but you also knew they would understand if thing’s ever got too much.
he raised his head so he was eye level with you, his eyes were still red and puffy and there were a few tears still coming down his face. you quickly wiped them away, pressing a kiss to his forehead.
“i love you, you always know what to say.” he whispered, kissing your lips a couple times.
“i love you too.” you say, standing up. “now, let’s go to bed, and tomorrow i’m talking to andrew about getting you a few days off.”
