You and Andrew both go to the University of Arkansas together and end up catching feelings for each other, but everyone is afraid to tell each other how they really feel…based off this request (word count: 2100+)
Freshman year of college consisted of nerves, new people and awkward first meetings.
It was now 7:58 and you were walking, well more like running to your first ever college class that starts at 8:00. With your luck it just so happened that your alarm clock had got gone off at 7:40. You had no idea where you were going and you did not want to be late to your first day of class. You weren’t looking where you were going when suddenly you found yourself on the ground.
“Whoah, you okay there pretty girl?” a stranger asked you. Looking up you saw a tall boy with boy with brown, longer hair. He was wearing a University of Arkansas Baseball t-shirt and boy, he looked good in it. He reached out his hand to help you up, which you gladly accepted.
“I’m fine” you said.
“You running to class too?” The brunette boy asked.
You laughed, “yes.“
"Where are you going, maybe we have the same class” he suggested.
“I’m supposed to be going to the Langue Arts building for English” you replied.
“Me too, we can be late together! I think it’s this way” the boy said.
The two of you starting walking towards your class which you were now five minutes late for, “my name’s Andrew by the way” he said.
“Y/N” you said back.
Once you guys reached the classroom Andrew reached for the door, “ladies first?” He asked, not wanting to be the first one of you two to walk in the class late.
“You’re going first,” you said.
Opening the door you saw that this class was a huge lecture hall. You guys tried to sneak in and find a seat in the back.
“Excuse me class, but it looks like we have some late comers” the professor spoke and the whole class, which was about 90 people turned around to look at you guys. “What are the two of your names?” He asked.
“Umm, my name is Y/N Y/L/N” you uttered.
“I’m Andrew Benintendi”
The professor scribbled something down on a piece of paper, “let’s not make this a habit, you two.”
“It won’t,” Andrew said, putting his hand on your back to guide you to your seat.
After class ended Andrew and you walked to the library together, “sorry about this morning” you said.
“What do you mean? We were both going to be late anyways” Andrew pointed out.
“I know, but for running into you” you giggled, remembering the embarrassing moment.
“Well, you surely know how to make an impression” Andrew said.
As the year went on you and Andrew started to talk more and more. The two of you would sneak into each others dorms past visiting hours and end up talking until morning or end up falling asleep in each other’s arms. You guys were “friends” who maybe hugged for too long and held hands every once in a while.
You thought he was as sweet as can be and cute for that matter, but you couldn’t let yourself fall for him. You came to school to study not to get your heart broken by a cute boy, so you had to hide your feelings.
Little did you know, but Andrew felt the same way, he adored you, he thought you were darling. He’d listen to go on and on while he played with your hair. But he came to school to play baseball and get good grades, he knew his parents would kill him if he let them down, so he too had to hide his feelings.
Hiding feelings was not easy for the both of you. When you saw him dancing with another girl at a party you couldn’t help but be jealous. “That’s a good look on you Y/N” Xander, one of Andrew’s friends on the baseball team said to you.
“Huh?” You asked.
He leaned on the kitchen counter next to you, “you’re jealous."
"Am not” you protested.
Xander raised his eyebrows in a questioning look.
“Okay, maybe I’m a little jealous” you confessed.
He smirked, “wanna make him jealous back?"
"How?” You asked, walking closer to him.
Xander glanced back to Andrew, “he’s looking here now, just flirt with me, act like I said something funny or whatever."
Your hands went into Xander’s hair, curling it around your fingers as you pretended to laugh at something he said. Andrew whispered something into the girl’s ear and starting walking over to the kitchen.
"He’s coming over now, I’m going to dip so I don’t get the shit kicked out of me…” Xander said, loosening his grip on your waist, “he looks pretty mad” and with that Xander left you in the kitchen.
You started making yourself a drink, you weren’t really one for drinking but you wanted to make yourself look busy to Andrew.
“Y/N?” Andrew called out.
You looked up at him, god why did he always have to look so good, “yes?"
"You’re drinking?” He said.
“Uhh…yeah” you took a swig of your drink, wanting to instantly spit it out ‘how do people drink this?’ you thought to yourself.
Andrew sent you a questioning glare, “what were you doing with Xander?"
You slumped your shoulders, "what were you doing with that girl?"
"Y/N, we were just dancing then I turn around here and Xander’s got his hands all over you” Andrew said sounding very jealous.
“Nothing’s going on between Xander and me” you said.
Andrew rolled his eyes, “doesn’t seem like it."
Your eyebrows furrowed in confusion, you didn’t mean to make him this upset.
"What’s wrong?” you asked putting your hand on his chest.
“Nothing” he declared, avoiding your touch by reaching behind you to grab a beer on the counter.
“Andrew, tell me” you pleaded, but he didn’t listen as he walked out of the kitchen.
Andrew was pissed to see his best friend’s arms around you. He told Xander that he liked you, how could Xander do that to him?
Xander made his way back to the kitchen, “how’d it go?” he asked you.
You shook your head, “I don’t think it went well at all, he’s pissed.”
“Yikes,” Xander said scratching the back of his neck.
“Yeah,” you said, taking another swig of at awful drink you made.
“I thought you didn’t drink?” Xander pointed out.
“Champagne for the pain?” You questioned walking out of the kitchen.
“But that’s vodka” Xander yelled to you.
Walking into the living room you saw it was filled with sweaty bodies grinding up against each other. Deciding to get your mind off your Andrew you let your body feel the music, it wasn’t long until you felt two hands on your hips. You didn’t know who the stranger was but in your drunken state, you didn’t care. “You’re a pretty good dancer” the stranger spoke.
You turned around to get a good look at the stranger he was tall blonde and had blue eyes, sure he was cute but he was nowhere near as cute as Andrew. “Thanks” you said your arms wrapping around his neck.
His lips got awfully close to your neck, “let’s get out of here and you can show me what else you’re good at."
Your arms left his neck, "no thank you” you said turning around but his arms grabbed yours pulling you closer to him, “come on baby” he said. You tried pushing him away but he was a lot stronger than you.
“She said no” familiar voice came up from behind you. You turned around to see that it was Andrew.
“What are you, her boyfriend or something?” the stranger spat.
“Actually, yes” Andrew spoke.
“Whatever take her” he tossed you over to Andrew and stormed off.
“Thanks” you slurred.
“Y/N, you’re drunk. Let’s get you back to your dorm” Andrew said his hand grabbing yours leading you outside.
Once outside Andrew called and Uber, you could tell he was mad so you stayed silent. When the Uber arrived Andrew open the door for you, his hand on the small of your back guiding you in the car. The car ride was silent and you were awfully tired. You felt your eyelids getting heavy and suddenly you were out like a light.
The uber stopped in front of your dorm, Andrew carried you out of the car and into your dorm. He laid you down on your twin bed. Your roommate still wasn’t back, she must’ve still been at that party. Andrew knew he couldn’t leave you alone, so he made a makeshift bed on the ground and went to sleep.
You woke up in the morning with a killer headache and looked over to see that your roommate still wasn’t home, she must’ve spent the night at her boyfriends. You slid your feet to the edge of the bed only to feel her body under your feet, you gasped but when you saw it was Andrew you were relieved. He woke up too, his body shifting towards you, “sleep well?” he asked.
“I have a major headache, what about you, you are on the ground” you said.
Andrew stood up as you shifted in your bed to make room for him, “wasn’t too bad” he said laying down next to you.
You rested your head on his bare chest, while his one of his hands rubbed your back and the the other one held you close. “Thanks for last night” you spoke up.
“No one should ever treat you like that boy did and I’m sorry for being rude to you in the kitchen before that” he said.
“It’s okay, thanks for always looking out for me” you said wrapping your arms tighter around him.
He kissed the top of your head, “I can’t believe freshman year of college is almost over…what am I supposed to do with out you over summer break?"
"I’m gonna miss seeing you everyday” you confessed.
“Me too,” he said pulling you even closer to him.
And you really did miss him, you guys would text everyday he’d send you pictures of himself on his family vacation and would reply with, ‘you’re crazy! I can’t wait to see you soon!’ And you would also send him pics of yourself on vacation and he’d reply with, 'I miss your gorgeous face!'
I mean how were you two not a couple?
Summer break eventually came to an end, and although you were sad to leave your family again you were so happy to go back to school see all your friends especially Andrew. You guys already had plans to see each other when you got back.
Andrew knocked on your dorm room, you quickly ran towards to door and opened it. Andrew stood there looking as cute as ever, “Andrew!” you exclaimed jumping on him, your legs wrapping around his waist. He caught you with ease, his arms wrapped tightly around your back, “well hello to you too” he laughed and set you down.
“You ready to go?” he asked.
“Yes!” you said.
Hoping into his truck, “where are we going?” you asked. Andrew smiled, “you’ll have to wait and see” one of his hands leaving the steering wheel and onto your thigh, sending butterflies to your stomach.
Andrew stopped in the middle of a green grass field, “I thought we could have a picnic, I even brought pillow and blankets so we could lay in the back of my truck” he said.
“That’s perfect” you said.
You guys got out of the trunk and laid the blankets and pillows out in the bed of the truck and climbed in. You two talked and talked for hours, he’d tell you funny stories about his summer break and you’d laugh.
“Summer break was great and all, but I guess I really missed you” you admitted.
He grinned, “I missed you too,” Andrew’s eyes moved from your eyes down to your hips as he leaned closer to you. You leaned in closer until his hesitant lips met yours. His lips were soft and plump, the kiss was slow and soft neither of you wanting to rush it. His hand rested below your ear and his thumb caressing your cheeks as your breaths mingled. You ran your fingers down his spine pulling him closer. The kiss got even slower as it came to an end.
“Why haven’t we ever done that before?” Andrew asked, pressing another sweet kiss to your lips.
“I’ve been wanting that to happen for a really long time” you said.
“I really like you, Y/N” Andrew spoke.
“I really like you too” you said, your lips pressing a kiss on his neck, just below his ear.
“I’ve liked you ever since the day I met you,” he confessed. You giggled, “me too."
He intertwined his hands with yours, "would you like to be my girl?"
"I’d love that” you said, lips meeting his in a passionate kiss.
I really hope you guys liked this one! I worked really hard on it! and I think it’s adorable!
OHOHOHO! Back at it with more blue snow photos! These were taken at colossalcon this year and im just now getting to post them! This cosplay is relatively simple but honestly one of my top 3 favorite to wear. SOX 👉🏻👌🏻
Aaron’s intentions are pure, however your overprotective friends think other wise (word count: 1600+)
You currently had an internship in Boston which was perfect because it just so happened that your cousin Dustin Pedroia played for the Boston Red Sox.
You were close to your cousin Dustin and grew to be really close friends with the some of the players on the team especially Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts.
Dustin’s family invited you and the rest of his teammates over for a simple barbecue on Thursday night.
Dustin stood up making a toast, “let’s beat those Yankees this weekend!”
The Red Sox and Yankees were getting ready to face off in the three-game series at Fenway Park. The Red Sox vs Yankees games were always the ones to watch because of the huge team rivalry. The boys were excited for the series and you were too because you were finally going to see Aaron Judge again.
You and Aaron had met at a small party awhile back when you were visiting your friend, Brooke in New York City. The two of you instantly hit it off, you thought he was really funny and sweet. Brooke even claimed the two of you would be perfect for each other and that it was a shame that you couldn’t come out to New York more often.
You and Aaron had been texting for a while now, but it was hard for you to ever see him in person because you were currently living in Boston. The two of you had plans to meet for lunch tomorrow.
“Y/N?” Andrew called you, breaking you out of your little day dream about Aaron.
“What?” you asked.
“Caught you thinking,” he said taking a swig of his drink, “…Got any plans before the game tomorrow?”
You smiled, “yeah, actually I’m going to lunch with Aaron Judge.”
Andrew looked up at you, “Is that so?” he said playfully pushing your shoulder.
“Yes, but don’t tell Dustin, he can get a little over protective sometimes.” you said.
“Don’t tell Dustin what?” Xander asked walking over to you guys.
“Oh Y/N is just going on date with the enemy.” Andrew said, looking over at you with a smile on his face.
“Enemy?” Xander asked.
“The Aaron Judge” Andrew told Xander.
“It’s just lunch, ok?” you said.
Andrew leaned back in his chair crossing his arms, “how do you even know him?”
“He’s a friend of a friend,” you said.
“Well I don’t trust him,” Xander said in a serious tone.
“Come on, he’s a good guy,” Andrew reassured Xander.
