47- “how can you still look so attractive while crying"
PART TWO OF “I NEED SOME TIME”
it’s been three weeks since you’ve seen or spoken to shawn, you wanted to reach out to him but you honestly didn’t know what to say.
he hasn’t tried contacting you, but did you blame him? you denied his marriage proposal.
well technically you said you needed time. but as you thought more and more about it, you knew it was too early to get married.
that didn’t mean you wanted shawn out of your life, or that you wanted to stop going out with him. you wanted to continue the relationship because you could definitely see yourself marrying him one day.
“y/n,” your best friend opened your bedroom door. “seriously just go talk to him. you’ve been sitting here for three weeks.”
you shook your head, “no he probably doesn’t want to see me anymore.”
“y/n,” she sighed. “you have to talk to him. it’s been three weeks, it’s time.”
you continued to stare out the window, particularly a couple who happened to be walking past. they looked so happy. you could’ve been that happy, but you ruined it.
you hated knowing she was right, you needed to talk to shawn at some point or else you would probably be in the state for a while. god, who knew how shawn was taking this whole thing?
“okay, you’re right. i’m going to go right now.” you say, getting up from your position at your bay window and making your way to the bathroom.
once you threw on some decent clothes, and fixed your hair and brushed your teeth, you grabbed your car keys and drove to shawn’s house.
the whole drive there you were deciding if you really wanted to go there or not, shawn was probably furious with you and honestly you wouldn’t be shocked if he never wanted to see you again.
you were lying if you said that wouldn’t hurt. even though you denied him, you still love him and would like to see where this relationship will go.
you found yourself in front of his driveway faster than you expected. you sat in your car for a while before deciding to finally go up to the door. it was now or never.
taking a deep breath, you knocked on the door a few times. no answer.
“shawn?” you asked, hoping maybe he was standing on the other side of the door.
after receiving no answer, you decided to let yourself in with the spare key under the door mat.
luckily he seemed to be the only one home since his car was the only one in the driveway. you pushed open the door to reveal shawn standing about a foot away from it.
your eyes widened as you took in the sight of him. his hair was a disheveled mess, and his eyes were red and puffy. they began to water again at the sight of you.
“y/n,” he said, letting out a shaky breath. “uh, what are you doing here?”
your heart broke at the sight of him.
“you should, uh, you should go.” he said, scratching the back of his neck. his voice was shaky, meaning he was about to cry again. he had never wanted you to see him cry.
“shawn, we need to talk about what happened.” you said, walking towards him. every step you took toward him, he stepped back.
“there’s nothing to talk about,”
“shawn,” you stepped forward again. this time, shawn didn’t take a step away. you grabbed his hand and cupped his chin, forcing his tear filled eyes to look at you.
“you know i love you right?”
he nodded, “but it’s too early to make a commitment like that.” he mumbled, tears were beginning to stream down his face. “i know, i know, i moved way to fast and probably scared you away.”
he effortlessly removed himself from your grip and turned away, making his way to his room. you followed, knowing this conversation was well from over.
“y/n, just go.” he cried, flopping onto his bed face first into his pillow.
“hey,” you soothed, taking a seat next to him and rubbing his back. “you didn’t scare me away shawn. i’m here aren’t i?”
“i knew i should’ve just gone with plan A, i shouldn’t have done it.” he exclaimed.
you ran your hand through his hair, trying your absolute hardest to comfort him. you knew you also had to keep your distance since you did break his heart three weeks ago.
after a few more minutes, he finally sat up. forcing himself to look at you. all you wanted to do was hold him and tell him everything was going to be okay, but you honestly didn’t know. maybe he didn’t want to continue the relationship, maybe it was time to go your separate ways.
“how can you still look so attractive while crying?” you said, speaking before you thought. you covered your hand with your mouth. “sorry.”
shawn let out a weak chuckle, “its
okay.” he took a deep breath before speaking again.
“look y/n, i hope this doesn’t scare you away but before i proposed that night i spent so long debating weather to do that or just give you the promise ring i bought. looking back i don’t know why i didn’t pick the damn promise ring, that would’ve been so much better.”
you weren’t sure if he was talking to himself or to you, because most of the time he sounded almost like he was scolding himself.
“shawn, it’s okay honestly.” you smiled. “maybe we moved a bit too fast.”
he nodded, “just a bit.”
“but,” you started, lacing your fingers together. “if that promise ring is still an option, i would love it.”
you knew it was a long shot to ask that considering the position of your relationship, but it never hurt to try.
his eyes widened, “oh! yeah, uh hold on, let me grab it.”
you laughed as he rummaged through his drawers to find the small box.
“wait, wait,” you interrupted him. “you bought a promise ring and an engagement ring?”
he returned with a small white pandora box in his hand, “yes. i may have got a little over excited.”
you laughed as he opened the box, revealing a beautiful princess crown ring.
“i’m not sure if i need to make a speech, i kinda did that already.”
you smiled as he slid the ring into your finger.
“thank you shawn, this is perfect.”
he let out a sigh of relief, “thank god.”
you smiled, quickly kissing him. happy that you have your boyfriend back.
