You sighed tiredly as you walked into the girls locker to change and go home. Like always you were the last to leave soccer practice.
You stood at your locker and got out the things you needed for a shower, you took off your shirt only to be scared to death by a sudden whistle.
‘Lookin’ good there Sweetheart.’
You groaned as you recognized the voice and turned around.
‘Garrett, you stayed behind and waited for me to shower…like a creep. Why am I not surprised.
‘Because you get me, and I’m not gonna stop. It would be less creepy if you dated me though, then it would be sweet.’ he said with a smile.
‘No, then it would be cheating, because you are with Violet, and I’m with Liam.’ you reminded.
‘Both are thing that could easily be changed.’ Garrett said.
‘True, but what if I just don’t want to be with you?’ you challenged.
‘I don’t. You are cocky, and have proved yourself to be a cheater, you are a jerk to Liam and his friends, you eat anchovies on your pizza, you think sweet snacks are better than cheesy and spicy ones. We would never work out.’ you said.
‘I also make you laugh and smile when Liam decides to stay late at practice and forgets to walk you home. I help you practice your drills and I jog with you in the mornings. And you enjoy those moments with me more than your date nights with Liam, which he normally cancels last minute anyway.’ Garrett said as he walked closer to you and took your hand.
‘Doing all those things with me takes away from the time you could be with Violet.’ you said as you took your hand back.
‘Garrett we can’t do this, even if I enjoy spending time with you more than Liam, or if you get along with me more than Violet. Because I care about Liam too much to betray him like this, and despite how you act when she isn’t around I know you care about Violet too much to hurt her.’ you said seriously.
‘I do care about her, but I love you. I would leave her, because being with her while I love you isn’t fair to her.’ Garrett said as he took your hand again.
‘(Y/N), please just give this a chance, give us a chance. You must know somewhere in your heart you want to be with me just as badly as I want to be with you.’ Garrett said.
‘I can’t leave him, it’s not right.’ you argued.
‘Its not fair for us to have these feelings for each other. Not fair to Liam and Violet to be in relationships where their feelings aren’t returned, and not fair to us to be with someone we don;t want to be with.’ Garrett argued back.
‘Garrett, I ca-’
‘Stop telling me what you cant do, what do you want to do.’ Garrett cut you off.
‘I-I want to be with you.’ you finally admitted, to both yourself and him.
‘Then be with me.’ he whispered as he leaned down to kiss you.
‘Yeah be together.’
You and Garrett broke apart and looked over at the door and saw both Liam and Violet standing there looking pissed.
‘Lord knows we don’t want you anymore.’ Violet said before she stormed off.
‘Violet wait!’ Garrett yelled before he ran to follow her, leaving you and Liam alone in the locker room.’
‘I was waiting in the parking lot, to surprise you and walk you home, Violet was waiting for Garrett too. We thought it was taking you both too long so we came to find you and what do we find?’ Liam snarled.
‘Liam I’m so-’
‘DON’T SAY SORRY!’ Liam yelled making you jump back.
‘This whole time I was feeling bad about not spending enough time with you, like I wasn’t giving you the attention you wanted from me.’ Liam said angrily.
You were in tears, you had never wanted to hurt anyone, least of all Liam.
‘I hope you and Garrett are happy together.’ Liam sat before he stormed out of the locker room.
You fell to your knees and your whole body shook with sobs.
