I’m not going in there - Imagine
So this is actually the second request that I got, but don’t worry anon who sent me the first, I figured that one would fit in well with the aftermath of this one so it will be coming soon!
But to the anon who requested this imagine I hope you enjoy!
“I really think this is the one for you Fionn” I laugh, holding up a luminous orange t-shirt for him to see as he stuck his head above the opposite railing.
“Ok I’m sorry, who thought that colour was a good idea?!” he exclaimed, shuffling between two racks of shirts to stand beside me. I shrugged and looked up to place the shirt back where I’d found it, only to spot a man across the store wearing the exact shirt I was holding. I snorted and pointed at him.
“Him apparently” I giggled and Fionn spluttered beside me, ducking away again to look at some shirts hanging on the wall. I sighed and placed the shirt back before moving to stand beside him.
“I hate this, I hate shopping, I hate crowds,” he groaned as two young girls pushed between us, giggling and gossiping with armfuls of bags, “I just hate people” he huffed. I smiled and shot him a quick sideways glance.
“Isn’t that the truth” I teased, earning a quick elbow in my side.
“Shut up Y/N, can we just find something for Harry’s birthday so we can leave? I’m hungry and I know there is a place in here that does amazing chicken wraps” he rambled, sifting through the shirts on the rack before huffing and moving on to the next one.
“Come on, I don’t think we are going to find anything in here, let’s look somewhere else” I sighed, grabbing his arm and weaving out of the shop, muttering a quick ‘sorry’ to everyone we bumped in to in our haste.
“Y/N, let’s be honest, we aren’t going to find anything at all for Harry. Nothing we can afford anyway” he said as we emerged from the crowd and back on to the top floor of the shopping centre. So far Fionn and I had been here for 3 hours, rummaged around at least 7 shops and leaving each one empty handed. After all, what do you buy someone who has everything? I sighed and steered myself towards a vacant bench, letting my body fall on to the unforgiving wood and placing my head in my hands. Fionn took a seat beside me and huffed.
“This is impossible” I groaned. “We’ve been here for hours and found nothing. What are we going to do? This is the first time I’ll be spending his birthday with him since we became official and I can’t even find him a present! What kind of shitty girlfriend am I?!” I cried. Running my fingers through my hair, tugging firmly at the roots.
“We suck at this” he said. I couldn’t help but nod in agreement.
“What shops haven’t we tried yet?” I asked, glancing at the rows of store in front of us, most of which I knew would have things in them that Harry would love, but I was also well aware that I wouldn’t be able to afford any of it.
“I mean there’s The Perfume Shop, maybe I could buy him some cologne or something?” Fionn suggested. I nodded with a small shrug. Fionn took that as approval and hauled me to my feet before leading me across the floor. For the next 20 minutes I hovered by the door, watching with a small smile as Fionn grew more and more flustered, sniffing several samples before huffing and asking for my help, stating that they all smelled the same. I laughed and joined him at the counter, plucking a box off the shelf and handing it to him.
“This is the one he always wears” I said. He took the box and glared at me.
“So you knew which one he would like and you still let me spend half an hour sniffing these damn things?” he snapped. I laughed and shrugged.
“It’s funny when you get all flustered” I chuckled with a small smile. He huffed and handed the box to the cashier before paying.
“Hate you” he mumbled as he took back the bag and thanked the woman.
“No you don’t” I sing-songed as we left, turning right and wandering further into the maze of stores, Fionn mumbled beneath his breath each time someone bumped into him. With each passing moment I was becoming more and more frustrated. Store after store ran beside us both, but still I saw nothing that was suitable. Fionn sensed my agitation and wrapped his arm around my shoulder.
“Y/N, calm down, we’ll find something” he said softly, squeezing my shoulder lightly as we walked, turning yet another corner. Ahead loomed perhaps the most promising store yet, and as we approached, I knew it was my best shot.
“I’ve got an idea!” I squealed, slipping from beneath Fionn’s arm and dashing towards the store. Fionn took one glance at the sign and shook his head firmly.
“No. No way. I’m not going in there” he said firmly, stopping dead in his tracks and folding his arms across his chest. I stopped and whirled to face him.
“Come on Fionn please, this will work! And it’s the only place I’ve seen” I whined, bouncing up and down on the balls of my feet as he remained firmly planted to the stop.
“No, Y/N, I’m not going in there with you” he said. I stepped towards him and grabbed his upper arms.
“Fionn please! You can help, you’re a boy, you know what boy’s like. We won’t be long I promise” I begged.
“Y/N, I’m not going in to Ann Summers with you while you look for lingerie to wear for one of my best friends. It’s weird and I’m not doing it” he said and I groaned.
“Please please please! For me?” I asked, fluttering my eye lashes in a hope to win him over. He maintained his resolve for a few more minutes, watching my face carefully while I bounced up and down in front of him, squeezing his upper arms and biting my lip as we partook in what turned out to be a battle of wills. Eventually he caved, his shoulders sagged and his arms fell limp at his side.
“Fine” he sighed and I squealed with joy, “15 minutes, and no more. Otherwise I’ll walk out” he said firmly and I agreed, dragging his reluctant body into the store. He looked like a fish out of water, his eyes were wide and his face was pale.
“How can there be so many?” he asked as we shuffled along the wall of bras and underwear. He furrowed his brows and looked at several sets.
“‘Plunging’, ‘push-up’, no, this is too much” he stuttered and turned to head for the door.
“No!” I cried, grasping his arm once more and pulling him back towards me. “No wait, I’ve found two I like, just help me pick and then you can leave” I begged as he stumbled beside me.
“Y/N, I can’t do this, I’m way out of my depth here” he rushed, his cheeks were flushed pink with embarrassment.
“Just look, please Fionn” I pleaded. He sighed but mumbled a quiet ‘fine’ as I help up the two I had chosen. One was a matching pair of lace panties and bra, the thin, light blue fabric decorated with delicate roses across the cup of the bra and on the hip of the panties. The second set was also lace but was a bright, seductive red. It was simple and relatively plain, but I knew it would look wonderful.
Fionn’s face flushed a bright scarlet as he glanced between the two, making an effort not to let his gaze linger too long.
“That one” he said, pointing quickly to the blue set before turning and practically running from the shop. I beamed at his back as it disappeared. Setting the red pair back on the rack I hurried to the counter and paid for the set before dashing after Fionn, only to find him flushed and jittery outside the store.
“Can we go now” he begged, his eyes looking everywhere but my face. I laughed at him and linked my arm with his own.
“Sure” I giggled. He huffed as we made our way to the exit.
“I’m never going shopping with you again” he mumbled.
