Secret (Newt Scamander x Reader)
A/N: So sorry for the lack of activity guys, just have no ideas. Enjoy and i’m literally begging you can you please give feedback? XOXOXOXO
Based on Little Mix’s Secret Love Song.
Y/N’s waist was soon touched by Newt’s hand. She smiled, as he pulled her close to her and continued walking down the street. He placed a big kiss to her head as they kept moving forward.
Sadly, that was not real life. Newt never held your hand in the streets, never kissed you in restaurants and never said “I love you” if others were present
Newt’s book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had blown up the markets and his newly acquired agents wanted to keep it like that. They thought that his attire and look of “single cute beast-lover” definitely increased sales. And so, this was why your relationship was secret. Behind closed doors. Only Queenie, Tina and Jacob knew of your love.
It also didn’t help that you were also an author, a quite successful one. Your (book genre) books had sold thousands of copies, and your agents have also agreed that your image of “single accomplished writer” was to be kept.
Frankly, you were growing sick of it. You wanted people to know. People to know how you were each other’s, how you found each other, how you brought each other happiness. You were tired of it. Tired of touching pinkies under the table. Tired of stolen glances from across the room. Tired of feigning feelings for him in front of other people. Tired of smiling for photographers that asked for pictures of “Newt Scamander’s friend.”
“Y/N? You coming?”
“Hmm, oh yeah.”
There was a book convention going on Diagon Alley, in Flourish and Blotts and you and Newt were both invited there to sign copies.
People were in fact making a big deal out of this, the Ministry promoting the event for weeks beforehand.
“Y/N.” Queenie came in your room, catching you staring at your palms, sitting on your bed all glammed up.
“Are you thinking about Newt?”
“No.” You lied.
“It’ll happen. You won’t remain secret forever. Trust me.”
“You’re a Legilimens, but any chance you also got some Seer blood in you?” You asked Queenie, who chuckled.
She took a seat beside you and wrapped her arm around your shoulder.
“Stop thinking about it. Everything’ll fall in place. C’mon have a bit of fun today, yeah?”
“Yeah.” You cheered up. Today was all about your amazing career.
“Ah and dare I say I spot Y/N Y/L/N at the entrance?” Melissa Skeeter, the main editor of many newspapers and magazines said.
You walked up to the bookstore, arm in arm with Tina and Queenie following close beside with Jacob.
The whole day was a whole lot of fun. You signed books, took pictures with readers. You haven’t spent a day without thinking about Newt in so long.
He watched her throughout the whole day. How she would smile genuinely at each person. How she would hug each reader, making them feel at home right away. How she would blush each time complimented. How she would laugh at stupid journalists questions.
Oh how he wanted to call her his. How he longed to proudly call her his girlfriend. How he wished to take her on romantic dates in the city. How he prayed to wrap his arm around her waist at events.
Suddenly, he spotted Skeeter asking her a question. Knowing her reputation, he listened intently.
“So Y/N, you are close friends with Newt Scamander right?”
Y/N nodded loosely.
“Any er more than friendly feelings present between you two?” Skeeter grinned.
Newt watched Y/N swallow hard and force a smile. She took a long sip from her water before answering.
“Our relationship is purely platonic.” She said robotically.
A couple people in line frowned, and some even exclaimed: “They’d make such a nice couple!”
Newt stared at his palms. Then at her. Then at his agent. Then at the photographers.
He stood up and walked very carefully to her booth. He approached her. People around stared weirdly, and people called out his name but he had eyes only for her.
“Y/N can I speak to you?” He asked.
Y/N looked perplexed and stood up.
Once she did, he took her hand and pulled her into him. He leaned down and kissed her.
He felt Y/N smile as she started to kiss him back.
