Pairing: Edmund x Reader
Requested: lol, no fam
Plot: Ed shuts reader out because he can’t deal with feelings
Warnings: terribly written, angry reader, super cheesy
A/N: I kinda like it
(after reading again I’ll have to disagree, past me), but it’s has a lame ending, because it’s 2:27am and I couldn’t think of anything better than that fjaubdja sorry for any grammar mistakes – suggestions and constructive criticism are very welcome, mates!
Edmund nervously tapped his fingers on the table, trying to calm down and stay focused. He had to remember himself what he came here to do: help Y/N. That’s it. Only chemistry. No stupid bubbly feeling would get into his way to help her out.
He didn’t dare to even glance at her. The ways she make him feel and was totally unaware of it. When he looks at her, he can’t help but admire everything that made her so amazing. The eyes brighter than stars, hair perfectly in place no matter what, and that breathtaking smile – his world would freeze every morning when she arrived at school.
Edmund was screwed, and he was very aware of that. But Y/N didn’t know her effect on the poor boy, so when she asked for help, he couldn’t say no. They were friends, after all.
The annoying taps were already echoing in the girl’s mind, but she controlled her nerves and managed to not burst at him.
Y/N cleared her throat, “Uhm, Ed? Are you okay?”. His head shot up. “What? Oh, yeah, I’m okay. I’m fine. Great.” He gave her a small smile, which she returned, but he catched her confused eyes and the frown on her lips after mumbling a quiet “okay”, turning her attention to the notebook.
Y/N sat beside him on her desk, with an oversized pink sweater, hair falling into her back and shoulders. Edmund was very sure it wasn’t the light that made she look so beautiful. Everytime he saw Y/N, he was simply mesmerized.
“Am I doing this right?” The timid voice brought him back to reality. He slightly blushed and slid his chair closer to the girl. Y/N stilled while he ran his eyes through the exercise over her shoulder. “Yes, it’s correct, you only forgot the unit measure at the end”. He grinned at her.
Y/N was screwed, and she was very aware of that. The truth is, she asked Edmund’s help as an excuse to talk to him, but she was actually quite good at chemistry.
Y/N was new in town, and they shared a few classes. At the beginning of the year, he would come talk to her about something random, but in the last weeks, Edmund didn’t even look at her face. The girl started to think she’d done something wrong and pushed him away somehow. ‘He was my friend and I messed up’.
So, she gathered up some courage and asked his help after their history class. “Yeah, sure, what do you need?”. And at that moment, Y/N realized that she didn’t need any help, and she blurted out the first thing that came to her mind. “Chemistry. I’m, uh, struggling a bit…? Can you come to my house after school one of these days?”
And there they were, two days later. Y/N looking up at the boy she knew she couldn’t have. Edmund admiring the girl way out of his league. He sat straight abruptly, and she felt her cheeks burn.
Clearing his throat, Edmund stared at the table. “I guess you have nothing to worry about, Y/N…”, he trailed off, and unconsciously began the taps again.
And at that instant, Y/N lost it. “If you continue doing that godforsaken thing, I swear to God I’ll chop your fingers off” Edmund looked at her in absolute shock. “I-I’m sorry?”
She suddenly got up and started pacing around, “God, Edmund, you’re driving me insane! And I’m not talking about your stupid tapping. I mean, that too, but you are so -UGH- we were friends, I mean, that’s what I thought, until you suddenly shut me out, just out of the blue, and you broke my heart, you stupid goofus! What have I done that you had to walk away and abandon me? Because last time I checked, all I did was follow you around like an idiot and drooled everytime you passed because I like you and all and – can you stop looking at me like that? It’s your fault I’m rambling like this”. Edmund chuckled and got up. ‘Did he lost his freaking mind?’. “You know what? You can leave now, Edmund. I lied, I’m great at chemistry, okay? Just forget all of this happened, please. You know the way out”. Y/N sighed and looked at her feet.
Edmund walked up to her and placed his hand on her cheek, making the girl stop fumbling with the ends of her sweater, and look at him. “You are adorable when you are angry”. Y/N scoffed and tried to push him away unsuccessfully, but there they were: the pretty confused eyes, followed by a tint pink on her cheeks.
Edmund took one more step, taking all the courage he could find before speaking. “How would you feel if I kissed you?”. Y/N’s eyes went wide, her jaw dropped at the sudden comment. “W-what? I-I mean, you are joking, right?”. He gave her a small smile, blushing a little. “I would never joke about this. I guess I’m… it’s just that… I think I like you, Y/N, like, really like - not in a friendly way.” Edmund searched her face for a signal of disapproval before continuing, “A few weeks ago I realized that you’re perfect, flaws and all… Your smile started to make me feel dizzy, I would get lost in your eyes, the weird way that you blink when you’re nervous, your hysterical laugh that annoyed me so much when we first met was music to my ears. Whenever I told you a stupid pun, and you shutted me up with that silly laugh, my heart fluttered… I pushed you away because whenever you’re near me, I can’t think straight. I feel stupid and strange – but like, a good strange, y’know, the way you feel after eating lots of sweets – ” and suddenly, Y/N covered his mouth with her hand. “God, stop talking for a minute and ask me on a date already.” She felt his smile under her hand, and smiled softly at him.
Edmund pulled her hand out of his mouth, and planted a kiss on it’s back. “Will you go out with me? And fyi, you should consider that I’m a great kisser” He smirked at her, but Y/N only giggled, rolling her eyes. “Yes, you stupid, adorable idiot, I’ll go out with you”, she smiled brightly at him, closing her arms around his neck and kissing the boy. His arms found her waist and he sighed happily, a grinn between their kiss.
Edmund pulled away slightly, looking at Y/N fondly. He pecked her nose, “Just don’t forget the unit measures in your test thursday”. She rolled her eyes and playfully slapped his chest, “I bet an ice cream I’ll get a higher score than you”. He laughed and put a strand of hair behind her ear, “You’re on, babe”.
