“Y/N, Nate’s coming over in a few can you let him in, I have to finish something.” My brother yelled from upstairs.
“Fine!” I yelled back. Truth was I loved when Nate came over, he was my brothers best friend and my secret crush. I always had hope that deep down Nate felt the same about me. I swore that each time I saw Nate he flirted with me. My friends told me that I was probably imagining it, but I truthfully believed he had some feelings for me at least.
I quickly looked in the mirror at fixed my hair and outfit. Whenever I knew Nate was coming over I had to look good. As I fixed my eyeliner, I heard the doorbell ring. I quickly walked to the front door to let Nate in.
“Hey Y/N!” Nate said with a smile as I let him in.
“Hey Nate, Ryan’s finishing something upstairs. You can go up there if you want.” I said.
“Nah, I’d rather hang with you for a little.” Nate smirked as we walked to the living room.
“Oh thanks, I feel honored.” I joked.
“You look nice today, I mean you look nice every time I see you, but I don’t know what it is about today that has you looking extra beautiful.” Nate said as his cheeks flushed.
“Thanks.” I said as I blushed.
“Uh so would you wanna hang out sometime, like just the two of us?” Nate asked as he fidgeted with his fingers.
“Like as a date?” I asked, my heart practically stopping in the process.
“Yeah, if that’s good with you?” Nate asked nervously.
Before I could answer, my brother stormed into the room.
“No, that’s not good with me.” Ryan said giving Nate a nasty look.
“Who even asked you? If I want to date Nate I’m sure as hell going to.” I said standing up getting in Ryan’s face.
“Y/N, Nate’s been my best friend for like years. I know how he treats girls, I’m just looking out for you.” Ryan said,
“Bro, let me show you that I’ve changed. Come on.” Nate pleaded.
“No, and plus mom and dad wouldn’t let this happen. They would never approve of you guys.” Ryan said.
“Whatever, I’m over this.” I said as tears filled my eyes. I stormed up to my bedroom and locked myself in there. Of course Nate would actual feel things for me, and my stupid brother had to go and fuck it up.
I laid in bed for hours, until my phone went off… It was Nate.
“Hello?” I asked nervously thinking it was my brother trying to be a dick.
“Hey Y/N, wanna take me up on that offer from earlier? We can grab something to eat.” Nate suggested.
“Ryan’s gonna kill me.” I sighed.
“He went to that party downtown, he’ll never know.” Nate said.
“Already such a bad influence.” I said sarcastically as I put on shoes.
“Come on, take a risk.” Nate replied.
“You don’t have to ask me twice.” I said as I hung up the phone and left my house to see Nate waiting out front in his Nissan.
My heart began beating erratically, I knew this was wrong going behind my brothers back, but it felt so right to be with Nate in such a secretive way.
