Relax, It’s Just The Flu
Pairing: Theo x Reader
Summary: Can I request a Theo imagine? Where the reader is sick with the flu and Melissa suggests she go to the hospital to get checked out and Theo’s all protective and cute?? Very fluffy(: Your Theo imagines are my absolute favorite!
Another dry, exasperated cough escaped your mouth. It was the tenth one today. Having the flu sucked, it wasn’t ideal, especially with exam season coming just around the corner.
You were at Scott’s place with the pack, it was meant to be a productive study session. But instead it turned into supernatural talk. The only ones in the house currently were you and Theo. Scott along with Lydia and Malia went to get food and Stiles had some errand to run.
Coughing again, Theo rubbed your back and gave you a glass of water.
“Thanks babe”, you took a sip and let out a deep breath.
“Do you need anything else?”, he asked, sitting down beside you. Shaking your head, all you wanted was this flu to pass. And if you drank enough water, ate foods that are known to fight off colds, hopefully it would pass quicker.
Melissa walked in the door and greeted the both of you. “Hey guys, would you tell Scott when he comes back that I’m on the late night shift?”. She walked up the stairs and came back minutes later, looking refreshed.
Just as Melissa reached the door, you had a mini coughing fit that just wouldn’t stop. Theo immediately grabbed the glass of water, and you drank all of it. Melissa turned back around. “If you want Y/N, I can take you to the hospital to get checked out?”. She suggested.
That automatically sent alarm bells ringing in Theo’s head, he stood up lightning fast as you too got up. “If it’s just the flu then why does she need to go to the hospital?”. Theo stood beside you.
Grabbing the coat draped over the chair. “Relax Theo, I’m just going to get checked out and hopefully get prescribed some medication to help fight off this cold”. You placed a comforting hand on his arm, but even that wasn’t soothing his worries.
Melissa was waiting for you at the front door, walking towards her, Theo jogged over. “I’m coming with you”.
“I’ll give the two of you some privacy, come out to the car whenever you’re ready to go”. Melissa let the door shut on her way out. Theo stood right in front his protective mode switched on.
“Theo, you have nothing to be worried about. Beside I was going to go to the doctors anyway, to see if they can give me something to get rid of this cold faster”. Even after hearing that Theo still wasn’t stepping aside.
Instead he leaned over to grab his own jacket. “You telling me to not be worried, doesn’t make me any less worried. If you’re going to the hospital for whatever reason then I’m going with you”.
Opening your mouth to protest he placed his finger over it. “No if’s or but’s about it. My girl is sick and I’m here to take care of you. If going to the hospital is what you want, then that’s where we are headed”.
Taking your hand in his, Theo scribbled a note to Scott and turned off the lights. The entire car ride to the hospital and getting checked out by the doctor Theo was there holding your hand through all of it.
The doctor hadn’t given any medication but prescribed lots of rest, plenty of fluids like water or soup and recommended a nice hot bath or shower. The moment Theo brought you back home, he carried you to bed because he didn’t want you to stress yourself out. Put all the things that you needed close by, ran a hot bath filled with your favourite bath oils, candles and scents.
All rugged up in pj’s and the bed sheets, Theo held you close despite many stubborn warnings from you that he’d also get sick. But he didn’t listen nor did he seem to mind.
He cut you off for the second time today and stretched out his legs. “Baby, if you tell me one more time that I’m going to get sick, I’ll kiss you”.
Gasping, you tilted your head to get a better view. “You wouldn’t dare?”
“Wanna bet?”, he smirked and leaned in super close to your lips.
Pulling further away, Theo just inched his lips closer and closer. “Theo I’m being serious, I don’t want you to get sick”.
Before you had time tor register Theo had already kissed you. “Babygirl, even if I do it’s worth it. Besides I’ve missed kissing you”. He cheekily added, smacking his chest you snuggled into his embrace more.
“If you get sick, don’t come complaining to me”. You heard a faint chuckle and pretty soon after feel asleep.
One week later
The flu you had was now gone and you were able to sit down and properly study for exams. As you were reviewing your English paper, your phone buzzed loudly on the wooden desk.
Babe, I’m sick :( - Theo
He attached a photo of him in bed frowning. You couldn’t help but laugh. Closing the books scattered on the desk, you grabbed your keys and headed on over to Theo’s place.
Arriving at his house, you made your way up to his room. Opening the door, Theo was curled up in the sheets with a box of tissues and a huge bottle of water on his bedside table.
“I think this is the part I say I told you so”, you smiled and took off your coat.
Theo poked his tongue out, “You can gloat later. But first come and give me cuddles”. Climbing into bed, you settled underneath the covers with him. “Oh, I’m definitely going to need you to draw me a bath”, he winked which caused you to shake your head.
“Even when you’re sick, you still manage to somehow be a cocky ass”.
Theo wrapped his strong arms around your waist. “Yeah, but you secretly love it”
Grinning wide, you did secretly love it. And there was no place else you’d rather be then here, looking after your idiotic but still very lovable boyfriend.
