[my dude I have so many headcanons up my sleeves you don't even know] Del loves teddy bears cause his momma loved teddy bears. and even with as many are piled around his room, he still only sleeps with one, cause that's the one his momma made just for him and it smells like home.
Omg that’s so cute! I hope you don’t mind I made it a little h2ovanoss-ish * v *
Luke had warned Evan that Jon’s room was a teddy bear dreamland, but nothing could truly prepare him for what he saw.
Hundreds of stuffed bears of all colors, shapes, and sizes lined the shelves and furniture of Delirious’ room. The closet was nothing but an overflowing jumble of teddies and worn-out hoodies. But, despite the entire room being filled with teddy bears, only one bear occupied the bed.
It wasn’t much to look at; just a simple blue teddy with a red ribbon around its neck and buttons for eyes. Evan looked back and forth between the near and his friend, raising an eyebrow in question. Delirious picked it up and sighed.
“My mom made it for me,” he said quietly. “Ever since she and my sister moved out of state, it’s been really hard on me. So…”
“She made the bear so you have something to remember her by,” Evan guessed.
Delirious nodded in response, before chuckling to himself. “It’s stupid, I know.”
Evan picked up another bear and smiled. “I think it’s sweet.”
For the rest of the evening, the two boys stayed like that: Jon telling the story behind every bear he owned, and Evan falling more in love with him by the minute.
