IMAGINE: Justin comforting you after something happens at the Winter Formal
Up til now, the night had been going very well. I’d been excited about the dance for weeks now. A cute senior even asked me to be his date, which I accepted. I was having a good time dancing and having fun until I saw my date making out with some random chick.
Instead of going up and confronting him, which I would have normally done, I ran out of the hall with tears pricking at my eyes. I wasn’t very upset, just humiliated. I didn’t even care that much, why was I crying?
I had been standing alone in the dark hallway for a few minutes when I heard the door open and close again. I quickly wiped my tears away, which had fallen down my cheeks despite the useless attempts at stopping them.
“Hey, Y/N, are you alright?” I heard the concerned voice of my best friend, Justin Foley, behind me.
I turned around and smiled weakly. “Yeah I’m fine thanks Justin. Go back in and enjoy the dance.”
“You’re not fine.” He stated, stepping closer to me to wipe away yet another rogue tear with his thumb.
“So, you and Jess seem close. ” I said, attempting to change the subject.
He laughed. “Nice try, but you’re not changing the subject.”
He took another step closer and wrapped his arms around me. I hugged him back. We stood in each others arms for a while, not saying anything.
Justin and I had been best friends since we we’re kids. We’re always together, people even thought we were dating for a while. He’d been there for me throughout the hard times and so had I for him. He often crashed at my place when he was having problems at home. My parents have basically adopted him.
“You’re the best.” I whisper.
“I know I am.” I feel him smile. “But you’re better. I love you.”
