summary: you just love hugs.
Shawn was talking to some of his labelmates at a small party that Island was having, to celebrate the release of some albums and singles. You were over by the food, talking to James, when he got called over by his manager to talk to some other musicians. You tossed the plastic cup you had been drinking from, and made your way over to Shawn. You wrapped your arms around his waist, and his arm found its home on your back. He continued the conversation he was having, and you just listened to it, zoning out a little. Shawn’s thumb was rubbing your shoulder, and he laughed at something the man said.
Once he left, Shawn looked down at you. “What’s up, babe?” He asked, rubbing your back.
“Nothin’. Just wanted a hug.” You said, smiling.
Shawn hummed, squeezing you. He kissed your forehead before you two walked over to the food, and Shawn grabbed a small plate and loaded it up with food, and you just grabbed another drink.
Shawn was in the kitchen of his childhood home, doing an Instagram stream, making some pancakes. You saw he was bus flipping pancakes, so you tip-toed across the floor, and your arms wound around his sides. The singer jumped a little, and you looked at the phone, which showed that Shawn was smiling. “Goodmorning,” You whispered.
“Morning, baby.” He tapped your arm, and you released him long enough to grab the batter, and a plate to set the finished pancakes on. But as soon as he was back to the griddle, your arms were around him.
“So,” Shawn spoke into the stream. “All she really does is hug me. I could be doing literally anything, and I can just expect her to hug me. She’s like a koala.”
The team had two hours to kill at the airport, so you and Shawn walked over to the Starbucks that wasn’t far from the gate. While waiting to get your coffees, a few fans came up to Shawn. He took photos with him, and they wanted to talk for a little, and you two didn’t have anywhere to go, so you four talked. Your arms were around your boyfriend’s waist, and his hand was on your back. “I think it’s so cute that you guys always hug!” One of the girls said, and you blushed, tucking your face into Shawn’s chest.
Shawn laughed, hand moving in a circle on your back. “We’re like two puzzle pieces, we just always fit together best like this.” He said, and the girls bid them goodbye not too long after, having to go catch their flight.
“Like two puzzle pieces, huh?” You asked, looking up at Shawn.
Shawn saw Josiah taking some photos, and it was just before the concert, so everyone was just hanging out in the back of the arena. You were, surprisingly, attached to Shawn’s side, holding a conversation with Dave. “I’m surprised Shawn hasn’t declared a personal bubble yet.” Dave joked, and you snorted.
“What?” Shawn asked, looking up from his phone.
“Dave’s surprised you haven’t forbidden me from hugging you.” You said, hand going to fix his hair.
Shawn shrugged, looking at his bassist. “I don’t actually mind her koala-ties.” You groaned, letting go of Shawn and walking away.
