okay but soccer player Calum would be that kid at school. the one who got all the girls, the one who everyone wanted to be friends with, the one who never seemed to study at all but still managed to make it through school. he was popular, and broke hearts every here and there. he was the opposite of you, who sat quiet in the back of class, always taking notes and never, ever, talking to anyone except that nice old lady who worked at the school library.
and even though Calum never had said a word to that pretty girl at the back of his English class, he still craved her more than anything. he didn’t know why, but he needed her. he knew that she wasn’t like the other girls, and maybe he just liked the way you always seemed to chew at your bottom lip when you got nervous, or how happy you looked even though you had to eat your lunch all alone in the library.
he made it his mission to get to know you, which meant running over to the library every day after practice, just to walk around and pretending to look through the bookshelves, when he actually was looking at you. and maybe he finally managed to awkwardly approach you, and maybe he had to try for weeks before he was able to make you giggle at his jokes, but maybe then he found himself sitting across you from the table, smiling while listening to you as you’re telling him about your favourite book during lunch, and maybe, in that moment, he realised that he had managed to fall for you.
