“jonah!” i screeched throughout my small apartment in LA. i had moved here when i turned sixteen, which was about four months ago, to be with my older brother, daniel seavey. yes, the daniel seavey. he is in a band called why don’t we and they are doing exceptionally well. i knew that he wouldn’t be coming home anytime soon and i really missed him so i had come to visit. in the amount of time that i was staying with the why don’t we boys, i had made some great friendships with corbyn, zach and jack. i also bonded more with daniel and better yet, i began to fall for jonah. because i didn’t want to part from my new best friends, my brother, and the guy i was falling for, i decided to move into my own apartment just a block away from the boys’ house when i turned sixteen.
even since the day i came to visit, jonah and i have each been falling harder and harder for each other. last night, jonah had come over to my apartment and spent the night. what he told daniel and the other boys was that he was coming over to help me with the music that i was starting to work on and that he had fallen asleep as it got later. but that was not the case.
“yes, baby?” he asked, popping his head into the bathroom where i was. i looked at him through the mirror and pointed to my collarbone, up my neck, and below my ear.
“i told you to not leave any hickeys,” i whined to jonah.
“i’m sorry. i just couldn’t resist. i wanna be able to show everyone that you’re mine,” i pouted at his words.
“we can’t do that yet, jonah. you know daniel would flip shit,” i sighed, trying to cover my five or six dark hickeys with foundation and failing horribly. “how am i gonna cover these?” i asked, more to myself than to jonah.
“what if you just, don’t?” he suggested.
“are you kidding me?” i laughed. “oh. you weren’t kidding,” i mumbled when i realized that he didn’t laugh along with me.
“i’m not kidding. why don’t you just see what happens?”
“but what if daniel sees them?” i asked.
“we’ll figure it out when we get to that point, i guess,” he smiled, leaning in to make more hickeys.
“mmm, i don’t think so,” i moaned, leaning back to escape his lips that i loved endlessly.
“aw, man,” he pouted, sticking out his bottom lip but then biting it because he knew it made me feel some type of way.
“stop,” i groaned, slapping his shoulder and pushing him out of the bathroom.
“okay, but hurry up. we have to be at the house in ten minutes and it takes five to get there,” he told me. i hurried and applied just a bit more foundation to the hickeys before turning off the light and leaving the room.
“ready?” i asked as i rose from the floor after tying my converse.
“yup,” he smiled, opening the front door for me and locking it behind us. then he ran over to the passenger side of the car and opened that side for me as well.
“thank you, cutie,” i smiled and planted a kiss on his cheek as i climbed into the car. he blushed before climbing into the driver’s side and backing out of the driveway.
one hour later
“wait!” zach exclaimed. “we’ve been sitting in this room for an hour and i am just now noticing that y/n got some action recently,” zach laughed, clearly referring to the hickeys.
“holy shit! i didn’t even see that!” jack laughed.
“oh my god,” corbyn joined in on the laughing. i felt my face heat up and jonah’s was as well.
“who? what? when?” daniel mumbled, almost inaudibly.
“jonah, why aren’t you talking anymore?,” corbyn winked, shouldering jonah. corbyn is the only one out of everyone who knew that jonah and i are together.
“jonah? did you leave the hickeys on my sister?” daniel asked bluntly, making dead eye contact with jonah.
“i-um… yeah?” jonah replied as more of a question. i put my hands over my face to hide the pure embarrassment of the fact that everyone in the room now knows what jonah and i were doing last night.
“can we talk for a second?” daniel asked jonah, standing up and walking into another room with jonah on his heels. we all sat in silence as we waiting for jonah and daniel to come back. when the finally did, jonah sat down right next to me and wrapped his arm around me, planting a kiss on my temple with took me by surprise.
“what just…?” i asked jonah.
“nothing, baby. let’s just say he knows we’re together now,” jonah smiled.
“mhm,” daniel hummed. “just because i know doesn’t mean i want any pda coming from the two of you,” he mumbled, making us all burst into a fit of laughter as jonah took his arm away but continued to secretly hold my hand out of sight from daniel.
