Stranger Things x He Could Be The One

i just need a moment to be thankful that the stranger things fandom as a whole has progressed to a point of loving and appreciating and including steve harrington as a character, because i still remember the dark ages when i had to sort through every ST blog when looking for people who loved steve was like looking for water in a dessert.  glad that’s over and we’ve instead moved on to bigger and better things (like joe’s hair)

Secret: Steve Harrington Imagine

Sorry if this sucks, its the first thing I’ve ever done on here

Summary: You are Nancy’s best friend and you are secretly seeing Steve after they broke up. (Nancy is with Jonathan at this point, this is set months into the future)

I spring awake to the sound of the phone ringing and try to wriggle out of the hold of the sleeping boy next to me. “Steve let go” I say while poking his cheek. He groans as he loosens his grip just in time for me to pick up the phone. “Y/N! WHY AREN’T YOU HERE YET?!” A voice yells through the phone. I rub my eyes as I look down at the watch Steve had on his wrist. “Shit Nance I’m so sorry I fell asleep and I must have lost track of time” I say through a yawn. “I’ll be right over just give me like twenty minutes.” “Sounds great. Oh and don’t forget your chemistry books” Nancy reminds me. I say goodbye and quickly hang up the phone. I shake Steve awake and explain the situation to the tired boy. “Do you really have to go?” He questions while I run around trying to find my notebook. “I’m sorry I totally forgot I promised Nancy that we would study tonight and I was supposed to be there at six thirty and it’s almost seven and I feel really bad about ditching you but I promised her and I just -” my rambling was suddenly cut off by Steve’s lips on mine. It took me by surprise but I didn’t complain. Steve was like that. Random and sweet. His hands rested on my hips as he pulled me towards his in attempt to deepen the kiss and make me stay with him longer. He sighs as I pull away and rest my hands on his chest. “I really am sorry Steve” I say not able to make eye contact. “Y/n. Stop apologizing. Nancy is your best friend I’m not letting you ditch her for me.” He say holding my hands in his. “Can I just ask you something?” I nod as he kissed my knuckles. “When are you going to tell her about us?” He says quietly, looking down at his socks. I shrug as I sigh. “I don’t know Steve, I know she’s with Jonathan now and that you two are friends but I can’t help feeling like I’m betraying her trust you know?” I say tilting Steve’s chin up to face me. “Besides Harrington, there’s nothing to tell. We’re not actually dating” I say smirking as Steve rolls his eyes playfully. “It’s not my fault you want to wait until you know that Nancy will be okay with it.” He says as he rests his forehead against mine. “Soon” I promise as I nudge his nose with mine. “I really have to go now but I’ll call you tomorrow and maybe we can hang out or something okay?” He agrees as we leave my house for me to go study with Nancy.


  I’m sat at my usual lunch table with Nancy and Jonathan, chatting about our latest photography assignment. I try to join in to the conversation as much as possible but I can’t help but wish that Steve was sitting here next to me. As if he heard my thoughts he came striding over to our little table in the corner. “Hey guys” He exclaims as he’s greeted with hi’s from all of us. “What brings you over here Steve?” Nancy asks the boy standing behind me. “Oh no reason really I just wanted to see how you just were doing.” He says casually. He continues to chat with us while he leans his hands onto my chair and the empty on next to me. Nobody notices but he’s gently rubbing my back with his knuckles. “You should come sit with us sometime Steve” Jonathan suggests as Nancy nods her head. “Yeah I definitely will sometime.” He smiles. “I’ve got to run but I’ll see you guys later”. As he is about to turn he places a warm hand on my back and walks away. “You okay y/n? You’re really quiet today” Nancy says sounding worried. “I’m great, just a little tired that’s all” I say with a small smile. 


The final bell has just rung as I stood from my seat and headed to my locker. As I opened it, a small, ripped piece of paper fell from it. The note read “Meet me in the darkroom after the bell”. I smiled knowing exactly who it was from. I made my way to the darkroom and quietly entered. As I shut the door, I felt someone’s hand grab mine and pull me into their chest. I laugh as I wrap my arms around Steve’s waist and rest my head on his shoulder. He kissed the top of my head as his arms wrapped around my shoulders. “I missed you” He whispers so quietly I almost couldn’t hear him. I hum in response as I buried my face deeper into his neck, leaving light kisses where my lips were. Being in Steve’s arms always felt safe, no matter where we were. We stood like this for at least five minutes before I finally remove my head from his shoulder. He loosened his grip and placed his hands gently on either side of my face. My hands find his waist as he whispers “you look beautiful” so quietly it almost seemed as if you weren’t meant to hear him. “Steve you can’t even see me” I say chuckling a little. “I don’t need to” He says before ducking his head down to kiss me ever so lightly. “You are so cheesy” I mumble into his lips before he removes his hands from my cheeks and rests them on my hips. My fingertips lightly caress the tops of his cheekbones before I slide my hands back, so my thumbs are just below the corner of his eyes. “You love it” He says before his lips find mine once again. My hands move to his hair, playing with the short pieces at the bottom of his neck. He attempts to move away from the door, but backs into one of the tables instead. I laugh a little and he takes that as an opportunity to slip his tongue into my mouth. I gently tug at the roots of his hair casting him to let out a soft moan. He moves one of his hands to the small of my back and pulls me closer into his chest. All of a sudden the door opens and a voice squeals “WHAT THE HELL”. Steve and I jump back away from each other as quickly as possible but it’s too late. Jonathan stands in the door with a shocked look on his face as Nancy turns to run away. Jonathan mumbles an apology and begins to shut the door but I run out calling after Nancy. Steve and Jonathan follow as I grab her arm. “Look Nancy I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Please believe me I’m so sorry and I’m so ashamed of myself right now and I just want you to know that -” “STOP! OKAY JUST STOP IT! I DON’T WANT TO HEAR YOUR EXCUSES SO PLEASE JUST GO AWAY!” Nancy yelled, tears filling her eyes. I let go of her wrist while the tears streamed down my face. She turned and walked away as I brought my hands to my face. Jonathan gave us a sympathetic look as he ran after Nancy. Once whey were gone, Steve put his hand on my shoulder. “I’m so sorry y/n” He said quietly. “Why don’t we go back to your place and watch some movies or something?“ "NO STEVE!” I shouted. “JUST GO AWAY! LEAVE ME ALONE!” “NO! I’M NOT LEAVING YOU ALONE RIGHT NOW OKAY! I’M NOT JUST GONNA DO THAT YOU NEED SOMEONE THERE!” He shouted back as I stared at him and cried. Luckily there was no one else in the school so the loud noises weren’t attracting anyone. He just looked at me as I stood in front of him sobbing. “Y/n I’m not going to leave you here alone. You need someone right now and I want that to be me. I’m never just going to leave you alone, because I love you. I’m never going to let you go through anything on your own.” You fall into his arms crying and apologizing. He just holds you as you replay those words he had just confessed to you in your head.


 I replay the scene over and over in my head. It’s something I can’t seem to stop doing. I snap out of my thoughts when I hear Steve calling my name. “Sorry what we’re you saying?” I ask the tall boy walking next to me. “I said my car is parked three rows back. You just kept walking and I was a little afraid you would get hot by a car or something” Steve says chuckling a little. I blush from embarrassment and mumble a quiet sorry to him. It’s the end of the school day and all I want to do is go home. We walk back to the car and get in. “Are you okay y/n? You’ve been zoning out a lot.” Steve says starting the car and pulling away. “Yeah I’m fine just a little tired” I say mustering up the best smile I can give him. “Well I just need to go somewhere and I’ll drop you off right after. It’ll be quick I promise.” Steve says looking at you a little. I nod in response and get lost in my thoughts again until we arrive. “We’re here. Why don’t you come with me?” I nod and follow Steve until I realize where I am. “Steve why are we here Nancy hates me please don’t make me go in.” I panic. “Just please go talk to her. I’m really worried about you. Please y/n, do it for me.” Steve pleads. I see the worry in his eyes so I agree. We walk up and Jonathan answers the door before I could knock. He smiles at me and tells me to go upstairs. Once I enter Nancy’s room she looks up at me shocked. I ask softly if I can come in and she nods at me. “Look Nancy I’m sorry and I get it if you don’t want to be friends but I miss you and I’m not the same and I feel so bad and I’m so sorry” I say holding back my tears. Nancy nods and looks at me. “Was this happening while I was with Steve?” She asks quietly. I shake my head. “NO! No of course not. Nancy you’re my best friend I would never do that to you”. She nods. “Why didn’t you tell me?” She questions. “I don’t know. I was scared that you would be mad and that you would make me chose between the two of you and I just couldn’t. I couldn’t even bear the thought of losing you but I don’t know what I would do if I lost him either. God we aren’t even dating and I’m talking about him like he’s the love of my life.” I say wiping my tears. “What do you mean?” She asks confused. “We’ve been hanging out for a while and he did ask me to be his girlfriend but I said that I couldn’t until I knew that you were alright with it.” I confessed. “When did this all start?” Nancy asks. “We were assigned to be partners in biology so we were hanging out to work on our project. After the project was finished he asked if I still wanted to hang out with him and I said sure because I had a lot of fun. I kind of had developed a crush on him and he told me that he did too.” I explain. Nancy mumbles a quiet okay and says “Just tell me one thing.” I nod at her and she continues. “Do you love him?” I widen my eyes at the question and stutter “w-welll i-i don’t know.” But then I started thinking. I was thinking about the time he offered to cut the frog open in biology because he knew that I didn’t want to, the times when he stayed at my house because I was afraid to be alone after a horror movie we watched, the time when he went on the Ferris wheel with me so I could get pictures for my photography class when no one else would. The time when he wouldn’t let me be alone when I thought I had lost my best friend, and finally when he told me he loved me. A small smile spread onto my cheeks as I thought. I looked at Nancy and nodded. “I think I do. I really do. I love Steve Harrington” Nancy smiled and grabbed my hand. “I forgive you. I’m sorry that I overreacted and I hope that you can forgive me.” Nancy said. I nodded as we hugged. We walked down to the living room hand in hand smiling. Jonathan’s face lit up when he say us and came over to hug me and tell me he missed me. We watched as Steve and Nancy slowly walked towards each other. Steve started to apologize but Nancy stopped him and hugged him. We all kept hugging and smiling for a while.


After a few hours of hanging out with Nancy and Jonathan, Steve and I bid our goodbyes and got in his car. We began driving to my house as he looked over at me and told me he was proud of me. Once we got to my house we went up to my room and flopped onto my bed. “Thank you. I really don’t know what would have happened if you hadn’t made me go.” I say looking over at him. He reached for one of my hands and intertwines it with his while he looks over to me. “I’m really glad you and Nancy are okay.” He says smiling. I hum in response. We stay silent for a few minutes until I quietly call his name. He turns onto his side to face me as I grab one of his hands and leave light kisses on his fingertips. “I just want you to know that I really appreciate what you did for me. And that I love you” I say the last three words quieter than the rest. He raises his eyebrows at me as if he was asking if I actually mean what I’m saying. I smiled at him and say “I mean it. I love you Steve Harrington”. His mouth opens in shock but his expression is quickly replaced by a huge smile. He grabs my waist and pulls me closer to him and I lean up to place a light kiss on his lips. “And Steve” I start. “Now that we know Nancy is okay with us -” “y/n will you be my girlfriend?” He asks, cutting me off mid-sentence. I laugh as I nod and I put my hand behind his neck to pull him down closer to me so I can kiss him again. “Yes” I mumble against his lips as he kisses me again. “But on one condition” I say as he looks down at me nodding. “You have to sit with us at lunch” I say as he laughs and kisses the tip of my nose. “It’s would be my pleasure” He says pulling me into his chest. We fell asleep like this not long after with limbs intertwined and smiles on our lips.


I’m not saying that there’s some grand conspiracy, I’m just saying maybe something happened. Maybe Will, was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
