loving you from afar (Liam Dunbar)
“Really y/n it’s been four months are you ever going to talk to him?” y/f/n said rolling her eyes at me.
I ignored her peering through the bookshelf at thee Liam Dunbar. He was only the cutest boy in the ninth grade. The only problem was he is super popular, he hung out with a bunch of juniors, one of them being Lydia Martin a.k.a the prettiest, most popular girl in Beacon Hills. I wasn’t popular, not even in the slightest. I was the nerdy girl who boys didn’t even give a second look to.
“we’ve been over this thousands of time y/f/n Liam Dunbar is well Liam Dunbar and i’m well underqualified” I said resting my head on my hand and admiring how handsome he is.
“Liam I uh think you have a shadow.” I heard one of his junior friends say laughing.
Liam looked over at where I was standing, I quickly ducked down hoping he hadn’t seen me staring.
“sometimes I wonder about you y/n” y/f/n said collecting our books.
I was about to respond to her but the bell rang signaling free period was over. I walked to my last class of the day which was science class. I was playing all the scenarios in my head that would never be a reality. I went to my usual spot which was at the front of the class. Liam came in shortly after me. I hid my face in my science book. He took his usual seat which was at the back of the class.
“okay class today we’re going to be working in pairs for our chemical equations so everyone pick your partners quickly and we’ll get started.” Our teacher said handing out the papers with the problems on it.
I sighed. I hated partner work because I usually ended up working by myself. People didn’t necessarily like a girl who outsmarted them.
“hey uh y/n do you need a partner?”
I turned around trying to look cute.
I couldn’t believe it thee Liam Dunbar knew my name and he wanted to be my partner! Most likely it’s because i’m the smartest in the class and president of the science club but hey i’ll take what I can get!
“hello? do you need a partner?” Liam asked again laughing a little bit.
“yeah that’d be great.” I said smiling a little too widely.
I was pretty impressed with myself, I talked to him and didn’t even stutter! Liam sat down and we started working on our problems. I was flying through them quickly having seen most of them before.
“wow you’re really good at this.” Liam said looking at my almost finished paper.
“oh it’s uh not that hard you just have to make sure that both sides of the equation are balanced and then you rewrite it with the balanced charges in front.” I said leaning over him and showing him on his own paper.
this was my first conversation with the boy I’ve been admiring for four months and I totally just geeked out on him. I would definitely kick myself for that one later.
“oh I get it!” Liam said doing the next problem successfully by himself.
I smiled at him finishing the problems on my paper.
“so uh y/n did you find everything you needed at the library today?” Liam said not looking up from his paper.
I could feel my face heat up. I thought I was being sly with my staring but I guess he had caught me.
“I uh yeah it was great.” I said my voice cracking a little bit.
Liam let out a little chuckle. Gosh why did he have to be so perfect. We continued to work on our paper. Every once in awhile I would look up at his perfect features, this time when I looked up he was looking at me too.
I could feel my heart race. I honestly thought it was about to beat out of my chest.
“so uh y/n you know if you want..” He started but was cut off by the bell ringing signaling the end of the school day.
The teacher called me up to his desk. I looked at Liam with apologetic eyes as I walked up to Mr. Preston’s desk.
“hey I need you to go over these scientific equations before science club tomorrow.” Mr. Preston said handing me a paper stack about a mile high.
I quickly shook my head yes, wanting nothing more than to find out what Liam was about to tell me. I turned around, but Liam was gone. I sighed, of course this would happen to me. Mr. Preston had to go to a meeting so I was left alone with nothing but my thoughts and a stack of science papers. I kept thinking about what Liam was going to ask me today. I was so caught up in my thoughts I didn’t realize that I had lost track of time. I looked at the clock seeing that it was already 6:00 PM. I quickly flipped through the giant stack of papers. As I was working on the last one I heard a loud crash coming from the hallway. I stood up walking out into the hallway but it was empty.
“hello? Is anybody here?” I called down the empty halls.
I shrugged my shoulders before turning to walk back into the science classroom. I heard another loud crash. I quickly turned around but this time the hallway wasn’t empty. There was this tall thing covered in bones. It had blood running down the skull.
The creature stared me down slowly taking a couple steps forward. I turned on my heels sprinting down the hall. I kept looking back to see if the creature was following me and it was.
“somebody help me!” I screamed tears running down my cheeks.
I turned to look back at the bone creature when I crashed into something hard. I screamed as I fell down.
“hey y/n look at me, its okay you’re okay.”
I looked up to see Liam clutching me to his chest. If the situation weren’t so serious I would of fainted at his actions.
“Liam it was right there, it was following me.” I cried looking down the hall, but the bone creature was nowhere in sight.
“it’s okay, it’s gone now. I won’t let it hurt you.” Liam said picking me up in his arms.
He ran out of the school and to a blue jeep. He sat me down on the hood and used his thumb to wipe one of the tears falling down my cheek.
“Liam what was that thing?” I asked not being able to control how shaky I was feeling.
“I wish I could tell you, and maybe one day I can but right now I just need you to know you’re safe with me and I also need you stay here and wait for me, can you do that for me?” Liam said rubbing his hands up and down my arms.
I shook my head yes and he ran back into the school. I didn’t know what was going on but I trusted Liam. After a good couple of minutes Liam came back out with his two junior friends I believe their names are Scott and Stiles. He ran up to me pulling me into his arms.
“were going to take you home okay?” Liam said placing his hand on my cheek.
I shook my head again, not trusting my voice after everything that had just happened. Liam held me in his arms the whole ride to my house. When we got to my house he told his junior friends to go on and that he’d walk home. We walked up to my porch steps hand in hand. He sat down pulling me into his lap.
“are you okay do you want to talk about it?” Liam asked carefully looking me up and down.
“at the library today did you see me staring?” I asked laughing a little.
“yeah I did, but it was okay. do you want to know why it was okay?” Liam said brushing a piece of hair behind me ear that had fallen.
“why?” I asked my voice still shaking.
“well the truth is I’ve been loving you from afar as well."
Liam pulled me to him crashing his lips on top of mine. Suddenly I forgot about everything that happened and just lived in that moment. The boy I had loved from afar has also been loving me this entire time.
