Getting Together (Joe Sugg Imagine)
A/N: Sorry it’s taken me a while to post anything today. There was a power trip throughout my house and my landlord is terrible at getting anything fixed quickly so I didn’t have wifi to see any of your requests and I couldn’t charge my laptop! It’s all fixed now though so here’s tonight’s imagine :)
‘So how’s the love life going?’ your friends Tanya and Zoe asked as you walked towards the restaurant that you were meant to be meeting your friends at for dinner.
‘Non-existent’ you joked in reply.
‘Well Joe’s still single’ Zoe suggested referring to her brother.
‘Zoe you’ve been trying to set her up with Joe for as long as I’ve known you’ Tanya remarked as you turned a corner.
‘Because they would be perfect for each other!’ Zoe defended looking to you for a reaction.
‘Joe’s my friend, I’m pretty sure that if anything was going to happen it would have happened by now.’ You shrugged. You had once had feelings for Joe but you’d since realised that nothing was ever going to happen and so had since decided to move on and accept that Joe was nothing more than a friend.
‘I wouldn’t be so sure’ Tanya smirked.
You ignored her comment as you approached the restaurant.
‘Joe’s in there already’ Zoe said pulling out her phone and checking her messages. ‘Alfie’s just text me asking him to meet him around the corner, Tan can you come with me and Y/N you can go inside and wait with Joe?’
‘Ok’ you rolled your eyes understanding that she was hinting at you two spending time alone. You didn’t mind though, in fact you were secretly happy that you’d get to spend a minute with Joe without the rest of the group hinting that the two of you needed to get together.
You went inside and saw Joe sat at a small table in the corner, he stood up and pulled you into a hug when he saw you.
‘Joe I don’t think this table will be big enough for all six of us’ you told him gesturing at the two seats positioned either side of it.
‘Actually the others aren’t eating with us’ Joe bit his lip awkwardly.
‘Yeah they are Zoe and Tanya have just gone to…’ you paused realising what had happened.
‘I’m sorry I lured you here under false pretences’ Joe said rubbing the back of his neck in nervousness ‘I just didn’t know how else to get you here’
‘You could’ve just asked me’ you told him sitting down.
‘If I’d have called you last night and said Y/N will you go on a date with me tomorrow night would you really have said yes?’ he asked raising his eyebrow.
‘I might have been hesitant’ you admitted and Joe grimaced. ‘But only because I had no idea you actually liked me’
‘Are you joking? Y/N I’ve liked you for ages, I literally spend most of my time looking forward to when I’m next going to see you again.’ He confessed.
‘Really? Because I liked you too and I kept trying to flirt with you but you weren’t picking up on any of my signals, I thought you didn’t like me as anymore than a friend’ you told him in amazement. You’d been crushing on Joe for a good year and a half before you’d decided to be just friends and even that had been a reluctant decision.
‘Really? I never realised’ Joe laughed to himself.
‘So what now?’ you asked resting your hands on the table. Joe reached over and scooped them up in his entwining his fingers with your as he did.
‘Well now you know that I like you and I know that you like me, so I think we should give us a go’ he told you looking into your eyes with warmth and sincerity.
‘I think we should too’ you agreed letting a smile spread across your face.
The two of you sat and ate dinner together and when you were finished Joe took your hand leading you out of the restaurant. You continued down the road until you spotted Zoe, Alfie, Tanya and Jim walking towards you.
‘You did it!’ Zoe squealed running over and engulfing you both in a hug.
‘Yeah’ Joe told them rolling his eyes at his sister’s excitement.
‘I told you’ she said turning to you ‘You two are so perfect for each other.’
‘And now we don’t have to keep teasing them about getting together’ Alfie added.
‘Good, I was getting sick of all those comments’ you told them causing them all to laugh.
The six of you planned to go back to Jim and Tanya’s for a movie night. The four of them led the way whilst you and Joe hung back for a moment.
‘Thank you for tonight’ you said to Joe as he wrapped his arm around your shoulders.
‘You’re welcome, I’m sorry it took me so long to finally ask you out’ he told you pulling you into him.
‘You were worth the wait’ you whispered leaning up to kiss him lightly on the lips.
‘So was that’ Joe smiled down at you and you knew he was right.
