no war for heavy metal

so i was in a music store today and they were playing heavy metal music

specifically, heavy metal covers of the star wars soundtrack

let me tell you, there’s something about hearing a heavy metal rendition of the cantina band music that makes you feel like you’re having an out-of-body experience

Sam looked up when the bunker door slammed much harder than was needed to close it. Your footsteps on the steps down into the war room sounded heavy on the metal stairs.

“Hey,” Sam said, immediately standing as he caught sight of your face. Your brow was wrinkled and you didn’t give him a smile like you usually did. “Y/N? Everything alright?”

You looked over at him and met his hazel eyes. Your brow furrowed more deeply. “It’s nothing,” you said, trying to act strong like usual. “Just family stuff…”

Sam took a few long strides toward you, shoving his hands into his pockets and considering you carefully. “That’s not nothing,” he said. “You look upset.” Now his brow was wrinkled with concern just like yours. 

You passed a hand over your eyes for a moment and heaved a heavy sigh. When you made eye contact with him again, he could nearly read what was on your mind.

“Come here,” he said, pulling you tight against him in a hug, his strong hands firm on your back, pressing you into him securely. He rested his chin on the top of your head, and you shut your eyes as you listened to his steady heartbeat. “It’ll be alright.” He planted a kiss on the top of your head, and you smiled to yourself at the action. The stress you had been feeling suddenly melted away as you settled into his arms.
