You couldn’t help but chuckle as you scrolled through your Instagram.
“What’s funny?” Joe asked, looking down at you. You were on your back on the couch, your head on his lap, his fingers running through your hair. You passed your phone to him, showing him Caspar’s Instagram post with Maddie.
“They’re so cute,” you said, reaching up to toy with the strings of Joe’s hoodie.
“We’re cuter,” Joe smiled at you.
“I know,” was all you said, but Joe knew you well enough to read what you didn’t say. He took your hand, kissing the back of it gently.
The two of you were a very open couple when it came to each other, but not when it came to the rest of the world. Joe wasn’t really one to share his personal life, and that included you. You understood it, of course. After seeing all the hate on Maddie’s profile, or any girl who could possibly have any connection with any of the boys for that matter, you didn’t have to question why Joe wanted to keep your relationship a secret.
That didn’t mean it didn’t suck though. From no PDA in the vlogs to no social media posts, it was hard to keep up with sometimes. Joe was Joe, but Joe was also thatcherjoe, and not being a part of that side of his life was almost like missing a big part of him. Sometimes, you just wanted to post a cute picture of your boyfriend. All the thoughts made you feel selfish, so you never brought them up, but Joe saw right through you anyways.
“I wish we didn’t have to hide either,” he murmured to you. “I’d show you off to the whole world if I could.”
“You can you know. I’m sure I’ll develop a tough skin,” you replied.
“You shouldn’t have to.” His voice was sharp, and you tread carefully.
