Lucky Day - Z.H.
A/N: I feel like everyone was swerving (or at least thinking about it) into Zach’s lane after the music video dropped soooo I wrote some Zach fluff. I think we need it.
Also, I’m thinking about taking requests but idk if I should do it lol.
It was just a normal day at the Why Don’t We house. The boys finally had a free day after travelling back and forth and filming the music video for their newest song. Although you had been on set with them while they were shooting, you still hadn’t seen the final cut. So when Daniel announced that the editor finished, you rushed downstairs to watch it, excited to see how it had turned out.
You had met the boys back in December while walking through the streets of Los Angeles. You had lived there your whole life yet you never got bored of the city. You were too lost in your thoughts to watch where you were going. Only when you heard a scream followed by some mumbling did you look up. Cursing yourself for being so clumsy, you looked up, your eyes widening and cheeks turning red. You had managed to spill the coffee you were carrying on a guys’ shirt and judging from his expression he wasn’t all too happy about it. Next to him stood four older boys and you could tell they were trying their hardest not to laugh. You zoned out once again, staring at the group. How can they be so cute?
“You just spilled your coffee on my shirt. On my white shirt might I add. And now you’re just standing there gawking at me stupidly.”
That seemed to shake you out of your trance. With an eye roll you turned your heads towards the boy again and said “Who are you calling stupid? You ran into me, it’s not my fault you weren’t looking where you were going.”
You felt bad for being mean, you knew he wasn’t the one to blame but the tone of his voice just put you on edge.
And you certainly wouldn’t let him get away with calling you stupid. Who did he
think he was?
His friends couldn’t hold it in any longer and started laughing hysterically. A small giggle escaped your mouth as well. That just seemed to anger the boy in front of you more, resulting in him glaring at you. If looks could kill, you would have been 20 feet under the ground by now. What’s his problem anyways? It’s not like I killed his puppy or anything.
“You need to calm down, dude. It’s just a coffee stain.” the blonde one said.
The guy with the curls looked at you. “What’s your name?” How does he get his hair so curly? It can’t be natural, right?
“I’m (Y/N). Are those curls real?”
The guys all laughed at your bluntness, well expect the grumpy head who was still shooting daggers your way. Good thing he’s cute.
“I can tell we’re gonna be good friends.”
You never would have guessed that your clumsiness could work out in your favour but here you were 8 months later. You’ve been there through it all and you couldn’t be more proud to call these boys your best friends. You hung out with them every day and they even brought you on tour with them. You’re incredibly close to all of them. Except Zach. He still didn’t like you but you couldn’t blame him. You two really didn’t have the best start after all. Still, that didn’t stop you from having a crush on him. Stupid, right? But you couldn’t control your feelings.
You were sitting in the kitchen reading when all the boys walked in with a laptop, ready to show you the video. To say you were excited would be an understatement. You were crapping your pants. The huge smile didn’t leave your face for one second and when it ended you couldn’t help but let out a small squeal, jumping around like a little kid on Christmas.
“It’s amazing! The editor did such a great job and you guys just look fabulous. The fans are gonna love it! Seriously, you all look so happy and don’t even get me started on the outfits. And Corbyn, oh my god, the glasses, ughh I-“
“Would you stop being so damn cute?” Zach cut off your rambling and you froze. Did he just call you cute? No, you probably heard wrong. You turned to him trying to form a sentence that would make sense and not sound like you just lost a few brain cells.
The other guys looked at each other, deciding to leave you and Zach alone to talk about whatever happened only a few seconds prior. You just kept looking at Zach, your heart beating like crazy. Don’t get your hopes up (Y/N), don’t let him see the effect he has on you. You could tell he was growing uncomfortable so you tried to say something but the only thing that came out was a very intelligent “What?” Real smooth, (Y/N), great job.
Your blushing cheeks and discomfort made Zach smile a bit. He also didn’t miss the hopeful look in your eyes when you turned around. That gave him the confidence he needed and after taking a deep breath he said “Stop being so cute, it’s driving me crazy. It makes me wanna do things that I shouldn’t do.” He took a step towards you and looked you in the eyes.
“Like what?” you whispered shakily, not trusting your voice.
“Like this.” And with that he wrapped his arms around you, pulling you into him and closing the gap between you. The kiss was short and sweet but it still made you feel all warm, sending your heart into overdrive.
With your eyes still closed you felt Zach leaning his forehead against yours. “I really like you and I hope you like me too. If you don’t, well, then I just made this whole situation between us even more awkward then it already was.”
Chuckling lightly, you opened your eyes. “I guess it’s your lucky day then.”
He smiled the most beautiful smile you had ever seen and wrapped his arms around you, hugging you tightly and shouting at the boys that yes, you liked him back.
