until there was a knock on the door that pulled him away, snapping him back into reality, thinking that kissing his best friend wasn’t a good idea.
the door opened to reveal a female wearing all black and a headset.
“oh, gosh, did i interrupt something?” she asked, he scratched the back of his neck as she turned a crimson color.
kind of, he thought, but he didn’t dare say out loud.
“no, no.” the words tumbled out of his mouth,”what’s up?”
“they need you for set.” said the female before showing a shy smile. he nodded before moving away from his best friend.
“i’ll-uh, see you after?” he asked and she nodded, giving him a small smile. returned it before he walked out the door, closing it softly behind him. she landed on the cream colored sofa with a groan.
she couldn’t believe that something she’s wanted for ages, almost came true, but then was crushed to pieces by that stupid girl in the headset. she pulled her phone out, checking all her social medias.
soon, he had returned, a smile on his face as he walked through the door. he felt his heart swoon as he realized she was asleep on the couch. he pulled his phone out of his back pocket, realizing it said 8:34 pm, and since she was probably jet lagged and she had a long day of traveling that it’d be best if he let her sleep.
he sat down on the couch, being careful not to disturb her as he sat down. she moved softly, cuddling into his chest as she sleepily adjusted herself. he sat still, not daring to wake her up as she was getting comfortable. he let her fall back asleep into his chest, a smile on his face as she hugged at his torso, her head nuzzled into his shirt.
he smiled down at her, taking in her facial features as she slept soundly. she practically had him wrapped around her finger. he would do anything for her, yet he didn’t know that she’d do the same for him.
as he played with her hair softly, the door opened to reveal a loud talking Jacob and Harrison. he immediately hushed them as they looked at him in confusion. Harrison’s face lit up.
“is that y/n?!” he asked, making Jacob’s mouth agape and his eyebrows raise.
“wait, is that the girl you’ve been talking about for ages?!” he asked slowly. he rolled his eyes at his two best friends, wanting to take back those night’s he’d talk about y/n and her boyfriend and how he’d been so mad that it wasn’t him who was treating her like a princess.
but little did he know, that ended months ago. y/n and her boyfriend had broken up, well, technically, she caught him cheating and dumped him. she wanted to tell Tom, she really did, but she wasn’t sure if it was such a good idea because of how mad he would’ve gotten.
“yes, now shut up. she’s sleeping.”
they rolled their eyes,”you’re so whipped, dude.”
“how can i be whipped if she’s got a boyfriend?” he asked the blonde haired boy who had spoken up before him.
“Tom, what are you talking about?” Harrison had asked, utterly confused. the blonde then put the pieces together, his mouth forming into an ‘o’ shape.
“did she not tell you?” he asked, Jacob sat back, enjoying the juicy drama unfolding in front of him.
“uhh, no.” Tom asked confused as well.
“he cheated on her and she caught him and she dumped him.” he said,”it was a rough time. i thought she had talked to you about it, but i guess i was the only one.”
Tom looked down at the angel sleeping upon him. how could someone so cruel hurt such an amazing human being like her? she was so genuine, so kind, funny, smart, elegant. his heart broke for her.
“wait, so Tom, you can date her!” Jacob perked up, Harrison nodded in agreement. the two of them had wanted the both of them to get together since he first mentioned he liked y/n.
“no, no, no.” Tom said,”i’m not ruining a friendship.”
“Tom, mate, she literally likes you! you can’t see it?” asked Harrison. Tom raised an eyebrow at his friend.
“she doesn’t, i highly doubt she’d like me.”
“Tom, you’re being so stubborn.” Harrison rolled his eyes,”she literally told me a month ago that she liked you, mate. and she’s finally single. there should be nothing holding you back!”
right then, he felt his heart stop. the world around him stopped spinning. the girl he wanted wanted him back. he felt a blush creep onto his cheeks as he looked down at her in his arms. he could already picture himself laying like that with her forever.
“you’re not playing with me, right?” he asked his best friend.
“no, dude, why would i lie about that?” he asked. Tom smiled.
“i’m finally getting something i’ve always wanted.” he said. his two friends smiled at the scene in front of them, finally happy for their friends.
the two finally walked into the house after a long day. she looked tired as she had just woken up from her nap about 2 hours ago, but inside she was bubbling with energy.
“so, anything new and exciting happen?” he asked, starting up a conversation.
she wanted to tell him what happened, but she didn’t know how, so for now, it was her’s and Harrison’s little secret.
or so she thought.
“pretty good,” she lied, in reality, it was hell on earth without him back in London,”how about things here? all well?”
he nodded,”you still with your boyfriend?”
her heart went to her throat. she didn’t want to lie to him about her ex forever, but if she told him what happened, it might be worse.
“uh-” she started,”uhm, a-actually, we broke up a while ago.”
Tom gave a look of sympathy,”oh, damn. i’m sorry.”
no he’s not. he’s glad that she dumped that no good asshole.
“eh, he’s an asshole. i guess i just finally came to my senses about him.”
he nodded as she put him in the spotlight,”how about you, Holland? got a lucky girl to call your own?”
he laughed,”uhm, no actually, no girlfriend.”
se pulled her eyebrows together,”how come?”
he shrugged,”just haven’t found anyone worth the while. plus, i’ve kind of got my sights set on someone else already.”
she raised her eyebrows as she felt her heart shatter, the man she loves just said he liked someone and she knew it would never be her.
“but, my real question is, why didn’t you tell me?” he asked, she looked at him confused.
“what are you talking about?”
“why did you never tell me you liked me?”
her eyes widened as shock ran through her body. she immediately tensed up.
“who-who said that?”
i’m so killing him, she thought.
“no, no, okay, i don’t like you.” she stumbled on her words as a smirk tugged at his lips,”and if i did, i dont want to ruin my friendship with you.”
he made his way to where she was standing at the island. his body pressed against hers as a gasp escaped her lips.
“trust me, darling.” he said, his face so close to hers that she could feel his minty breath. his lips hovered over hers, only driving her crazy.
“what do you say, love? let’s risk it and ruin the friendship?”
his lips grazed over hers before she couldn’t take it anymore. she reached up and grabbed his neck, her mouth meeting his as he wrapped his arms around her waist, kissing her back with just as much love and passion.
and that’s where it all started.
