A/N: Enjoy! Only difference is the ending lol. This is not part two by the way!
You didn’t think this would happen. You were falling for Tom, hard. At first you thought nothing of it, but once you got to know him, the real him, you were in a trance. You developed a love for Tom, it was completely indescribable. You never told anyone, not even Harrison, knowing he’d never keep his mouth shut. He’d spill everything to Tom, and you couldn’t bare let your affection for him to get in the way of your friendship.
Tom was special. He was charming, kind, confident. He had lots of good qualities and a great personality. Who wouldn’t fall for him. Tom also seemed to be paired with Zendaya a lot lately. In magazines and articles, reporter kept saying how they were a thing. Those two hit it off from the very start. They created a very close friendship. You felt a little jealous because you felt that she had more to offer to Tom. And you happened to consider yourself a decent person, but it would never be enough for Tom. But you reminded yourself that you had nothing to worry about or so you thought.
“Hey Y/N Zendaya invited us to her house would you like to join us?” You looked up to meet his brown eyes. He was showing the most heartwarming smile.
“Um…Sure who’s all going to be there?” You slowly stood up from his couch.
“Everyone! Jacob, Harrison, Laura, the whole gang” He smiled brightly at you.
“Great. Let’s go then” You gestured to the door.
“Ladies first” You teased.
He playfully rolled his eyes but walked ahead of you.
The ride to her house was a comfortable silence, but felt as though someone should have spoken up first.
“We’re here” Tom unbuckled his seat belt and didn’t bother to wait for you, already practically in the enormous house. Another thing you couldn’t show off.
You knocked on her front door. Unlike Tom who just burst in, you knocked like the well mannered girl your parents raised you to be. Not a second later the door swung open to reveal a happy Zendaya.
“Y/N the door was open silly. Come on in!” She chuckled softly.
You walked in and were greeted by everyone. A few “Hey’s” and “Where were yous” were thrown your way.
“Oh I was…outside” You pointed your thumb behind you.
“Doing what?” Jacob spoke up.
“Getting left behind” You mumbled. Thankfully no one heard you.
“What was that?” Harrison looked confused.
“Uh nothing. So what’re we doing?” You clasped your hands together.
“We could swim in the pool out back” Zendaya suggested.
“I’d love to but I’m not in the proper swim-wear” You gestured to your jeans and t-shirt.
“I think I may have something for you to wear Y/N, come on” Zendaya grabbed your hand and dragged you to her bedroom.
You saw her rummaged threw her stuff.
“Ah ha. Here you go. The bathrooms down the hall to your left” She smiled at you sweetly.
Why did she have to be so nice. It was seriously impossible to hate her. There wasn’t anything bad you could say about her.
You quickly changed into the bikini top and bottoms. You gazed at your reflection picking out all your flaws. The bikini didn’t do you as justice like it did on Zendaya. Whereas she was skinny and tall, you were curvy, not that it was a bad thing, but always had a problem with your image. You couldn’t compete with her.
By the time you arrived outside everyone was doing their own thing. Tom and the boys were playing a game with a football, while Zendaya and Laura were tanning on chairs. You found yourself deep in thought thinking how did you fit in with these people. They were well-known and popular in life whereas the guy at Starbucks couldn’t even get your name correct. How did you managed to get yourself involved with them.
As months went by you slowly started seeing a change in Tom. He was always hanging out with Zendaya more often than usual, practically blowing off your hangouts to spend time with her. You were losing him, and fast. Your chance of ever being with him was starting to become a long-shot, and if you didn’t make a move he would be a goner. He’d be with Zendaya.
“Harrison I don’t think this is such a good idea” You protested. You finally gave in and told Harrison about your feelings for Tom. Since he was his best friend, Harrison suggested that you’d just tell Tom how you felt, that way you could see if he felt the same way.
“No don’t do that. You’re not backing out of this now” He shook his head.
“But what if he doesn’t like me” You stared at your feet.
“Your his best friend, you two have a wonder friendship, there’s no way he could reject you” He placed a reassuring hand on your shoulder.
“Okay” You sighed.
“You got this” He gave a slight push to his trailer.
“I got this” You recited back to yourself until you reached his door.
You mentally prepared yourself for better or for worse. You knocked slightly on his door but got no response. Strange he just finished shooting today. You thought. You tried again but got no answer. You opted for option two. You tried opening his door. It opened immediately granting you access inside his trailer. You cautiously stepped in looking around and not finding him anywhere. You checked the last place you knew for sure that you’d find him. You walked up to his bedroom and heard music coming from the room. You grew curiously and turned the knob, which you now regret doing so.
You gaped at the sight of Tom and Zendaya in a full out make out session. You gasped which finally got both of their attention. Tom noticed you first and his eyes bulged out widely from their sockets. He pulled away from Zendaya.
“I-It’s not what it looks like!” He flailed his arms in a “no” motion.
“He’s right Y/N” Zendaya pitched in.
“Really?!” You looked at him incredulously shocked. “I can’t do do this right now…” You whispered. You exited his trailer with fast paced steps.
“Y/N!” You heard Tom shout after you. You ignored him and continued walking to your car.
“Y/N stop!” Tom got a hold of your forearm preventing you from going any farther.
“Let. Go. Of. Me!” You said sternly.
“No not until you tell me what’s wrong!”.
“Oh now you care?!” You scoffed.
“Of course I care. I’m your best friend” He looked stunned.
“You haven’t exactly been acting like one” You mumbled averting your gaze any else.
“What?” He asked.
“You heard me” You pulled your arm out of his grip
“Why are you being like this?!” He raised his voice.
“Because she took you from me!” You cried out.
“Who? Zendaya? She hasn’t taken me from anybody Y/N, I’m not her property!” He shook his head. “I’m no ones property”
“She took what we had” You whispered.
“What we had? What’re you going on about?”
“You two became closer and started hanging out more. You kept ditching me for her. I lost you to her” You sniffled.
“You didn’t lose me Y/N” He hugged you.
“I think I already have…” Your voice was muffled by his shirt.
“What makes you think that?” He looked down at you.
You averted your eyes.
You finally looked him in the eye and let it all out. “I fell for you Tom. I fell in too deep. I wanted to deny it, but I always kept coming back to you. Then you got closer to Zendaya, and I blew my chance. And when I saw you kissing her I j-just couldn’t watch”. You didn’t realize you shed a few tears through your confession.
“Y/N-” He started.
“No it’s okay. You don’t have to say anything. I get it. You love her. She’s the perfect girl for you. You deserve someone as great as her Tom” You faked the best smile you could muster.
“Y/N it’s not what-”.
You cut him off. “No I get it you clearly-”.
Tom grabbed your cheeks pulling you in for a harsh kiss cutting off your sentence before you could finish.
“Shut up” He said against your lips.
You were taken back still trying to process what just happened. You could only nod.
“If you’d just let me talk, then you would know that we were practicing for a scene” He looked at you.
“A w-what?” You whispered.
“My character Peter and her character Michelle have a kissing scene. Zendaya asked if we could rehearse so it wouldn’t be awkward on set”.
“Oh” Was all you could muster. You felt incredibly embarrassed. You made a big deal over something so small.
“I’m such an idiot!” You turned away from him.
“Hey you didn’t know” Tom caressed your arm.
“I don’t whether to feel relieved or slap you” You quirked a brow at him.
“I’d go for the first option” He put his hands in surrender.
“I’m sorry” You looked up at him.
“It’s okay…So you really fell for me?” He turned serious.
“Umm. Look Tom I didn’t mean to blurt all that out. I never wanted our friendship to get ruined”.
“And it never will love. I love you as well” He leaned forward kissing your forehead.
“You mean that?” You smiled a bit.
“I only have my eyes set out for one girl, and that girl will always be you”.
