It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and everyone was at Finn’s house lounging around. It was one of those rare weekends were nothing was planned regarding interviews or promos although the whole cast still chose to be with each other.
The movie you were all watching had just finished and as the credits rolled through Gaten stood up from his seat. “That movie was great, but what now guys?”
“I don’t know, watch another movie?” Caleb suggested.
Millie groaned, “We’ve already watched two movies. Let’s do something else, please.”
“Well what are we gonna do then?” Gaten asked.
Everyone looked around, thinking of something to possibly do. There were a few moments of silence before someone finally spoke up.
“Let’s play a game!” Sadie exclaimed.
“Ooh! Let’s play truth or dare!” Millie said.
“Nah, that’s too cliché,” Finn said. “I’ve got the perfect game to play!” Everyone waited for Finn to continue. He looked over at me and the smirk on his face made me worried about what he was going to say next. “It’s called Paranoia,” he wiggled his fingers all mystical in front of his face.
“What the hell is that?” Noah asked.
Finn leaned forward, placing his elbows on his knees. “Basically, we all sit in a circle,” he motioned for us to move to the floor and sit down. “This is a shit circle but anyways, now one person will think of a question and the answer would have to be someone in the circle and they have to ask it to the person sitting next to them. For example, Noah decides to ask Sadie ‘who is the best looking?’ Obviously, the answer would be me, Finn. But Noah has to whisper the question to her so no one else can hear and Sadie answers out loud. So, no one knows the question but we all know the answer.”
“Okay, but do we ever get to know the question?” You ask.
“That is where it gets interesting! So, if Noah asked Sadie who was the best looking and she answered Finn, if I was dying to know what the question was, I can ask Noah what it was but I have to do something crazy or gross that he gets to choose for me” he finished explaining.
“Sounds wild! I’m in!” Millie stated.
“Me too!” Gaten said.
“I came up with the idea so I’m going to go first, duh” Finn decided. He turned to Millie who was beside him and put his hand up to her ear and started to whisper.
Millie nodded her head and thought to herself for a second. “Hmmm. Well, I’m go to say Caleb!”
Everyone in the circle looked to Caleb who had a curious look on his face. “Well okay then.” Caleb leaned over to Gaten who was sat next to him. Everyone waited in anticipation.
Gaten listened quietly then answered. “Definitely Noah!”
Noah looked scared and looked around at everyone’s faces. “I kind of want to know what the question was…”
“I’ve already got a dare in mind!” Caleb said. “You can find out the question if you’re up for it!”
“Umm, well what is it?” Noah asked cautiously.
“You have to drink one cup of pickle juice! All of it!” Caleb said.
Noah thought for a moment. “Nah, I don’t need to know that badly.” Everyone laughed.
“Okay Noah, your turn” Finn said.
Noah leaned over to you and whispered into your ear. “Well not Gaten, that’s for sure” Gaten looked offended while everyone giggled around him. “I’d say it’s Sadie!”
Next it was Sadie’s turn and she leaned over to Finn. She laughed to herself as she pulled away, a cheeky grin on her face.
A pink blush quickly creeped its way up Finn’s neck and onto his cheeks. “Do I have to answer that?” He asked looking at Sadie.
“Yes, you do, it’s how the game works!” Sadie replied.
Finn looked around the circle before stopping to lay his eyes on you. Making strong eye contact he smiled, still blushing, and said “Y/N.”
“Awww, that’s cute! I totally knew it!” Sadie exclaimed, punching Finn’s arm in a playful way.
Finn was still looking at you with a smile and you could feel the blush on your cheeks now too. You couldn’t help but wonder what the question was.
“Ooh, look at Finn he’s totally blushing!” Caleb called out.
Millie joined in on the teasing, “oh I wonder what the question was! Don’t you want to know Y/N?”
You looked around at everyone and thought for a second. Yes, you wanted to know what the question was but at the same time you didn’t want to have to do something terrible or gross. Everyone was egging you on so eventually you decided that you would ask what it was.
“Yes! This will be great! Follow me!” Sadie stood up from the floor and made her way into the kitchen. You groaned and slowly got up to meet her by the fridge. Sadie was pulling things out of the fridge left, right, and center. “Let’s see, what do we have?” She mumbled to herself. By this point the others had gotten up and entered the kitchen also. You felt Finn walk up behind you and place his hand on your shoulder.
“What do you think she’s going to make you do?” Finn said quietly into your ear.
You tilted your head back towards him and answered, “I’m not sure but hopefully it won’t be too terrible.”
“You want to know why I said your name that badly, eh?” Finn questioned with a grin.
“I want to know all your secrets, Wolfhard” you said back with a wink which caused Finn to laugh.
“Okay!” Sadie announced. “Presenting to you the lumpiest, the craziest, the I-Don’t-Know-If-You’ll-Actually-Drink-This Paranoia Smoothie!” Sadie slid a large glass over the counter towards you that was filled with a brownish grey coloured liquid inside. “Drink half of that and I’ll tell you the question!”
You picked up the glass with a look of grimace and carefully smelled the odd liquid. “What is even in this, Sadie?” You asked.
“If I told you, you wouldn’t want to drink it.”
The smoothie looked disgusting but you really did want to know what the question Finn was asked that you were the answer to. You sighed before pinching your nose and taking a big gulp of the drink. Everyone cheered you on as you threw back half of the smoothie before throwing down the glass onto the counter, coughing as the after taste hit.
“What did it taste like?” Millie asked you.
You coughed again. “Brown” you replied and everyone laughed. “Please tell me the question before I need to throw up from that awful drink.”
Sadie and Finn looked at each other. “I think Finn should tell you” Sadie said with a sly smirk.
Finn turned to look at you. “Fine, but can I at least tell her alone?” Everyone let out mixed answers. Caleb and Gaten saying no but Millie and Noah saying yes.
“Yeah go ahead” Sadie decided.
Finn grabbed your hand and lead you down the hall towards his room. He closed the door as you went to sit on his bed before plopping himself down next to you.
“So, what’s the question and why do you only want me to hear it?” You asked with a funny feeling inside.
Finn exhaled and grabbed your hands to hold in his. “Well, um, so, I…”
“Just spit it out, Finn!” You said, needing to know what he has to say.
He looked up to meet your eyes. “I- Sadie asked me who I had a crush on in the circle.”
You blinked in shock. “I don’t understand- “
“I said you because well, I’ve liked you for a long time now and obviously Sadie knew that so she wanted me to finally tell you and she knew that you’re a little bit nosy and would want to know the question and now you do know the question and the answer is you. It’s always been you.” Finn stopped rambling and broke eye contact.
You still hadn’t said anything, you were too shocked to even try. You had liked Finn ever since you met and had only hoped that he would ever like you back.
“I only wanted to say it alone so I wouldn’t have to get rejected in front of everyone else.” Finn let go of your hands and ran his fingers through his bushy hair.
You reached out gently and lifted his chin up so he would look you in the eyes again. “Hey, why do you think I’d reject you, Finn? You’re my best friend.”
“Exactly, we’re best friends and you probably want to keep it that way,” he sighed. “It’s okay if you do.”
You reach out to hold his hand again. “I don’t though. Yeah, you’re my best friend but I’ve wanted you to be more than that for so long” you explained.
Excitement lit up on Finn’s face. “You do?”
You smiled, “Yeah of course! I’ve sort of liked you since we first met.”
“Why didn’t you ever tell me?” Finn asked.
“I could ask you the same thing, Wolfhard” you joked.
Finn let go to scratch the back of his head nervously. “Um, well then do you want to go out with me, Y/N?” he asked with a shy smile.
“I’d love to, Finn.” You both leaned in for a hug which lasted longer than the ones you’ve shared before.
Without noticing, the two of you had gotten closer together on the bed and when you let go you were only inches apart. Finn looked at you and smiled.
“I kind of want to kiss you right now” he whispered just loud enough for you to hear.
“Then do it” you said, wanting him to kiss you as well.
Finn leaned in and closed the gap, kissing you for the first time. It felt perfect, you could feel the sparks flying in your head. You both pulled away and opened your eyes smiling at each other. Before either of you could say anything, there was a knock at the door.
“Can you guys finally come back? It’s been years already!” You could hear Caleb shouting from behind the door.
You both laughed while Finn got off the bed and reached for your hand to pull you up to standing. “Shall we go tell them?”
“Yeah, I guess so.”
You opened the door and walked out to join everyone else.
“So, how’d it go?” Millie asked with a huge smile on her face.
You and Finn looked at each other and he lifted your intertwined hands to show everyone else. “We’re officially dating now!”
Everyone cheered and congratulated you both, Sadie claiming that she knew it was going to happen all along.
“I knew you were going to get together eventually, you guys are perfect for each other!” Millie said.
You looked to Finn and smiled big. “Yeah, I guess we kind of are.”
