Hi i just found your blog and i absolutely love it and your writing style. From the 101 Fluffy prompts could you please do nr 047: "My ex just invited me to their wedding and I need you to be my date so it doesn’t look like I’ve spent the last few years failing to get over them." with Rin please?
You frowned in front of the mirror as you stared at your wasted look. You tried wiping away the smudged mascara around your eyes and fumbled for some make-up in your purse to retouch your look.
It’s been years since he ended your relationship and your life has been a mess ever since then. You had sleepless nights– most of them are even spent in getting drunk in an attempt to drown your misery. After those rough moments in your life, you slowly picked yourself back together and thought that you were already over him.
Boy, you realized how wrong you were when you got a letter in your mail 2 weeks ago.
You are cordially invited to (close friend’s name) and (ex-boyfriend’s name)’s wedding
Those words tore your heart to pieces. You wanted to turn the invitation down and to just threw it away to the trash where it truly belongs but you didn’t want to disappoint your close friend, especially when you saw just how happy she is when she met you days after that incident.
You sighed and took one final look at the mirror. You still look wasted, but you fixed that with a little help of your makeup. You were thinking about how glad you were that your mascara wasn’t that bad when you stepped out of the ladies’ restroom when you saw Rin waiting for you by the door.
“____? Are you crying?” He said and took your face with his hands all of the sudden. You were quite taken back as to how he learned about you crying.
“It’s because of (ex-boyfriend) right?” When you didn’t answer he sighed. “I know you weren’t over him yet.” Rin took your hand and pulled you back to the reception hall. “Come on now.. Everyone’s waiting for you.”
“Don’t worry..” He looked away from you with a visible pink on his cheeks. “Just leave it all to me. I’ll take care of you.” All of the sudden, you remembered Rin involved during those times when you were having a hard time with your life. He was there to listen to your stories while you were crying, he took care of you when you were drunk, even during the mornings where you experience an intense case of hangover, he was there to give you medicine and to take care of you.
He’s been right there by your side all along, but you failed to see that.
“You’ll be fine.” He said when he tugged your hand again and you refused to move. Instead of going to the reception hall to where he was leading you, you suddenly moved closer to him until his back was finally resting on the wall.
“You’ve been there all along..” You closed your eyes and stood on the tip of your toes to kiss his lips. You actually expected him to push you away but he placed his warm palms on your cheeks instead to deepen the kiss. You opened your eyes and saw how he was immersed in this passionate kiss that you two were sharing.
Nothing else mattered to you as of the moment. All you wanted was to stay like this with him.
