don't be a fool
Summary; Shawn’s newest tour schedule forces him to make a decision, resulting in a broken relationship between him and Y/N.
It had been one of the best two years and ten months of your life — ask any one of your friends and they’d agreed with you when they say that you’ve never been happier. It sounds cheesy, and almost naive to be so invested in a relationship at such a young and ripe age, but it was inevitable when you had a guy as passionate, loving, and charming as the one and only Shawn Mendes
Despite his hectic schedule, Shawn always found a way to make time for you, and that’s what you loved about him. You were understanding of how he wouldn’t always be able to be home, and in turn, Shawn always made the days and nights he was with you the best. The amount of trust you had in your boyfriend was like none other, and his arms eventually became your second home. You trusted Shawn with all your love and heart.
Aside from the occasional disagreements that would usually be resolved before the two of you would go to bed, your relationship with Shawn had surprisingly gone somewhat smoothly. That was until the topic of Shawn going back on tour to debut his newest album was brought up at the dinner table. Of course the idea of Shawn touring around the world and ultimately being away from you and his hometown was nothing new to you. In fact, he’s been away from you months at a time because of his career.
It wasn’t the distance that scared you when Shawn brought up touring, oh no, not at all – it was rather the crack in his voice and look of pure terror when you asked him how long his upcoming tour would last. That’s when you felt the goosebumps ride up your legs and spine, and the color completely drain from your face. There was no way this would result in something good.
You’ve got my heart, but I can’t let you keep it babe,
‘Cause I won’t be sure that I can stay.
“W-What do you mean a year?” you frantically asked while trying to get yourself to believe what Shawn had just told you.
“I’m leaving in about a month, Y/N. I know that’s not a lot of time and I don’t know,” Shawn began to mumble. He takes a deep sigh waiting for one of us to break the silence.
