Pairing: Tyler x Reader
“Ready or not, here I come!”
Ethan grabbed my wrist and shoved me into a small room as Mark finished his countdown. We had been trying to find a good place to hide but it was very hard since so many of the rooms were off limits. We weren’t allowed in any of the bedrooms, the kitchen, or anywhere outside. The two of us were planning on hiding together but when he closed the door on me without coming into the cramped room, I realized that I had been abandoned.
“So much for best friends.”
I wasn’t expecting any kind of reaction to my statement since I had been shoved into a seemingly empty closet, so I was frightened when I heard a chuckle. My hands covered my mouth so I didn’t give away my hiding spot as I tried to see who else was in here.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you.” It was Tyler. Of course, Ethan had to shove me into a confined spot with the guy I had been crushing on. My face got beet red when I realized that the wall I was shoved up against had turned out to be Tyler’s torso. I could feel his breath on the back of my neck and I tried to control mine so that he didn’t realize how nervous I was.
“I-it’s fine.” I attempted to turn around so I could face him but that only caused us to get even closer. Tyler grunted when I moved and put his hand on my waist when my foot slipped on something.
“Woah, be careful, this closet’s a mess.” I couldn’t see him but I could imagine his sheepish smile as he rubbed the back of his neck. My face got even more red but he didn’t move his hand back. It was silent for a bit while we listened for Mark who passed our spot once but didn’t even attempt to look in the closet we were in.
“Nice going Mark, way to be thorough.” I smirked as Tyler chuckled at my comment.
“He’s gonna be pissed when he finds out he walked right passed us.” I giggled and we fell back into silence but this time it was kind of awkward. I could feel my heartbeat speed up and I was afraid that he could hear it. To me it sounded deafening but hopefully it was just me.
Suddenly the hands on my waist gripped tighter and I felt one travel up to my arm. I was about to ask him what he was doing but my breath caught in my throat when his other hand cupped the side of my face. My heartbeat was so loud now, there was no doubt that he could hear it and it was probably going to give us away.
His hands were steady and I was trying to figure out how because in that moment my hands were shaking like crazy. I could feel him moving in closer but the blood pumping in my head was making it hard to concentrate.
We were interrupted by Mark, who had opened the door so quickly, I feared that it may come off of the hinges.
“I FOUND YO- OH MY GOD IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING!”
