omg 6 with matt?
#6: “What do I care how he looks? I am good-looking enough for both of us”
Lunch time was your favourite part of the day, since it was the only time in between your shifts where you could hang out with your boyfriend. Matt greeted you with his wide goofy smile as you met him in the cafeteria, not caring if you got grease on you as you hugged him. You gave his blonde hair a ruffle, kissing him on his big nose before you turned to get your food.
The food was actually good today, fresh and delicious smelling. As you sat, you thought you might finally have a moment of peace with your love, until you overheard some officers talking about you from another table.
“He’s ugly as hell, what does she see in him?” One whispered loudly, not caring if you heard.
“He sure is punching above his weight. I mean, look at her, then look at him.” The other replied.
“Poor girl. She probably has to cover his face when they go at it.”
“Yeah, he probably sucks in bed too.”
Matt slouched in his seat, hearing it all. He believed it all to be true, and a lot of your arguments stemmed from this idea that you were too good for him. You were a gorgeous high-ranking officer, and he was barely a mediocre technician. Even as Kylo Ren, his physical features were lacking, according to him. You noticed his body language, frowning slightly. You weren’t exactly a confrontational person, but you were sick of this. You knew that even when you weren’t around, people bullied Matt, feeding his fears about not being enough for you.
So when you heard another officer state that “you deserved someone better” you stood abruptly, snapping your plastic fork. To Matt’s dismay, you stomped over to the table, slamming your hands down.
“My boyfriend is the most beautiful person in this goddamn universe, inside and out. Even if I didn’t find him incredibly attractive, I am good-looking enough for both of us.” You yelled, frightening the officers with your intimidating glare. “If I ever hear you talking about him in a degrading way again, I’ll have you all floated into deep space.”
You finished your rant with a curt huff, turning back to your table. You smirked at the surprised look on Matt’s face, his delight showing in the sparkle of his wide eyes. You stopped before returning to him, turning back to the officers to add one last point.
“Oh and by the way, he’s fucking phenomenal in bed.”
