During the summer, the Beacon Hills Cineplex does midnight showings of old black and white movies. Stiles drags Derek to the theater on an uncharacteristically sweltering August night, when the air conditioner at the loft finally gives up the ghost. They see The Thin Man, one of Stiles’ favorites. Derek hasn’t been to a cinema since New York, and the smell of old popcorn and polyester carpeting hits a strange, wistful chord in his heart. Stiles insists on buying him his snack of choice– popcorn and milk duds– and beams when Derek confesses to combining the two when he was a kid. Their knees touch once they settle into their seats, the theater dark around them as the opening credits roll. By the final scene, Derek has lost the thread of the plot, because Stiles’ hand is in his, his head on Derek’s shoulder, and their hearts are racing in time.
“What happened?” Emmett asks. You sighs, “Some idiot decided to get in my personal space and wouldn’t leave me alone so I punched him in the face.” You were the new Cullen sibling but you were also still human. You were closest to Emmett and he took up the role as an overprotective brother. “Badass,” he smirks. You smile, “You’re an idiot.” He grins, “But you love me.”
“So are we close yet? To your- I dunno, secret gay forest cabin? ‘Cause my feet are starting to hurt and I mean I’m no Vagabond, but you probably won’t want to carry me.”
Nobody replies and Gavin sighs, because he’s an idiot. He got snatched right out of the middle of a job and they immediately ditched his phone and then later on his comm and he didn’t bring any extra ones because he’s an idiot. So now he’s walking through a dark forest in a massive thunderstorm, completely drenched, one guy with a gun behind and one in front of him and they’d tied the longest rope known to mankind around his torso like some kind of cartoon, except that it actually holds up really well and his only escape attempt so far ended with his face in the mud, because he’s an idiot.
If he’s lucky, there’s a nice amount of torture in his future, and then death.
“Coming right up, one secret gay forest cabin,” the guy in front drawls languidly and stops in front of a well, waving Gavin forward with his gun.
Peering down into the well, he can’t see anything but absolute darkness. “You’re kidding, right?” His voice is a little higher than he’d like to admit.
Warnings: None really. It’s mostly fluff and cuteness.
Summary: Josh surprises Y/N by coming home earlier from a trip to South Africa and they invite the boys over where you decide to be children for a day and play hide and seek. But you accidentally give out your hiding spot by hitting Josh in the balls. @joshpleters
You put the finishing touches to your new video just as you hear the door open. You furrow your brows feeling your heartbeat quicken. No one is supposed to come today. You slowly get up from your chair and walk towards the door.
“Y/N?” Josh calls out and you sigh in relief.
“You bloody idiot! You scared me half to death,” you exclaim walking over to hug him. And then you realise that he isn’t supposed to be home for another three days.
“What are you doing here?” you ask making him chuckle.
“I couldn’t go without my girl for much longer. I’ve missed you,” he says giving you a kiss that lingers on your lips. For an entire day, you cuddle up on the couch while you listen to Josh talking about his trip to South Africa. You know how much he misses his family so you feel glad he got to head down there. He should do it more often. The next day you invite over the buttercream squad and you help them film some videos before you all sit on the couch wondering what to do.
“We should play hide and seek! Forfeits for the people who loses,” you say noticing the others nod in agreement.
“We should make it into a video, though. Put cameras around and record it,” Joe says and soon enough you’re all setting up cameras and everything.
“I’ll seek, then you guys go hide,” Jack says and you quickly scramble. Josh waves you over pointing to a tiny closet.
“No way we can both fit in there,” you whisper but Josh shakes his head.
“We can definitely fit in there. It’s the perfect spot, he’ll never look here,” Josh explains as he crawls in signalling for you to follow. You end up in a very uncomfortable position on top of Josh, but Jack is done counting so you try desperately to stay still. That just isn’t an option when your foot cramps up and you move suddenly. You barely notice it happen, but Josh screams out in pain and you tumble out of the closet. Josh bends over making weird noises.
“What the bloody hell is that sound?” Joe says running towards you. And it’s not that you want to laugh, but it is a really funny noise.
“I told you we wouldn’t fit!” you exclaim making the other boys laugh. They’re all standing around watching Josh in pain. You start laughing as well.
“Please tell me one of the cameras got that!” Conor laughs. Joe is laughing so hard that he isn’t even making a sound. And you do feel bad for Josh, but it’s also really funny.
“Next time listen to your girlfriend, mate!” Mikey says leaning on his own knees while laughing. Both you and Josh have tears in your eyes, but it’s for very different reasons.
“You’re all horrible friends,” Josh cries out making the rest of you laugh even harder.
