Poe and prompt 5???:))))
5. No one got me a present..wait..is that a present…for me? AU
As the saying goes, no one should be alone on Christmas. Except right now you’d very much rather be alone than feel alone in a room filled with people you don’t even know.
It was a Christmas party held at Finn’s place. You sat in the corner of the living room watching everyone mingle with each other. Oh how you craaaved to be home right now. You hated this feeling. Despite being surrounded by so many people, you felt so alone. You didn’t have the confidence to spark up a conversation with someone and become friends. You were too shy for that. So here you were, sitting in your small corner wishing the wall would swallow you whole.
“Present tiiiime!!!” One of the friends, Snap, exclaimed whilst dressed in a Santa costume. He started calling out names. People receiving presents from one another. You noticed almost everyone getting at least one present. Because you hardly knew anyone here, you knew for a fact you weren’t getting a pr-
A small wrapped square box appeared in your line of vision. You looked up to see Poe Dameron, the office hottie, holding it out to you.
“What’s this?” You asked him.
He shot you a smile, “A present silly.”
“You?” you asked in disbelief.
Poe chuckled, “Don’t sound so excited,” he said sarcastically.
You apologized, “Sorry, I just-you got me a present?”
“We don’t even know each other.”
“Well, your name is Y/N L/N. You like to keep to yourself, but you’re quite funny. You like dad jokes and memes. And you have a soft spot for seasonal drinks like pumpkin spice lattes and peppermint mochas, even though everyone around you says they hate them.”
You narrowed your eyes at him, “I’ve hardly spoken to you at work. How the hell did you manage to get all of that?”
“You think people don’t see you, Y/N. But they do. I see you.” Poe leaned down and pecked your cheek, “Merry Christmas.”
Poe walked away fading into the sea of people opening their gifts. Like the rest, you tore off the wrapping paper and opened the box. Inside was a mug that had a llama on it with the saying “Fa la la la llama”. You held it to your chest, a warmth spreading through your body. Maybe coming to this party wasn’t so bad after all.
