Distraction

Pairings: Sebastian Stan x Reader

Warnings: Mentions of cheating, cruel remarks, angst, smoking

Word Count: 847 

Summary: You meet Sebastian outside a bar after some pretty terrible news 


You met him outside the bar, in the area around the corner designated for the smokers. 

You’d gone out there to clear your head a little from the compressing noise inside, having just found out the hard way that your boyfriend of three years had been cheating on you for at least the last year and a half. Your friends had tried to console you, offering to get you so drunk you wouldn’t have been able to remember what his face looked like, but you’d declined. You told them you just needed a minute and slipped outside for a smoke, no longer able to keep the tears at bay.

Now you were leaning back against the brick wall, one of your hands covering your mouth to muffle the sounds of your sobbing while the other held an already forgotten about cigarette.
“Excuse me?” The voice made you jump, your eyes widening as you wiped some of your tears off your cheek. “Would I be able to borrow a lighter?”

You nodded your head, handing it over without a word. You could tell by the expression on his face that he probably didn’t need the lighter, having come over just because he’d seen you crying. You appreciated the fact he hadn’t asked what was wrong, instead choosing to lean up against the wall next to you, lighting up his own smoke.
“I don’t normally look like this,” You blurted out once the silence had gotten too much for you. The man cocked one of his eyebrows, a smile tugging at the corner of his lips as he sucked in a drag. “You know, a real hot mess. Well I mean apparently I never look as good as I think I do and I’m nothing more than average but what I mean is I don’t normally have mascara running down my face.”

You’re not entirely sure why you just repeated all your ex’s harsh words at this man, someone you’d never met before in your life, but there was something good about getting it off your chest. They’d been tugging painfully at your heart strings ever since you’d walked into the bar and saw another woman’s lips attached to his. She was beautiful, but you weren’t surprised by that, your ex had always had a want for the finer things in life and why should his mistress be anything less. 

You’d been suspecting it for a while now but having it flaunted right in your face hurt more than you would have ever admitted; having him mock your insecurities and using them as excuses as to why he had cheated in the first place left you feeling practically worthless.

A Roadtrip | Pt. (1/2)

Synopsis: The title says it all. Jungkook makes your planned roadtrip to Busan a bit messy

A/N: Jungkook…. has got me feeling some type of ways, so I HAD to write this. I originally intended to post this as one whole scenario but that’d be too long I guess. Anyways, I promise that after I posting the next part of this story I will continue with The Four Elements lgkjaggalksjh. I just…. needed a way to get my feelings straight….. I’m a mess.

Pt. 2


You loved the feeling of the fresh summer breeze coming in contact with the soft skin on your face, the wind causing your hair to wave in the air, your eyes closed as you let the breeze calm you down.

Roadtrips were your favorite thing, and it became kind of your own tradition to do a city roadtrip every summer. You did not know exactly when it started, but every year around July, you found yourself driving in your cabriolet to random cities, enjoying every single unique element that each city in your country had, eventually taking pictures with your polaroid, the memories captured forever, just in one single picture.
