William Nylander - Prom
Player: William Nylander (Toronto Maple Leafs)
“But the thing is: I don’t have a date!” You said to your best friend as you two were talking about upcoming prom.
“Why don’t you ask someone?” Your bestie suggested.
“Like who?” You asked. You were more frustrated than you’ve ever been before.
“Umm.. Hello Y/N! Any guy would be thrilled to take you to prom!” Your bestie literally screamed. You didn’t think like that at all. In fact, you knew no boys, you had no friends that are boys and you had never had anything going on between you and a boy, so why would your best friend think someone would be thrilled to take you to prom?
You laughed sarcastically and shook your head. You were ready to bury your dream about going to prom wearing beautiful dress with some boy, like no, not going to happen.
“Come on! You have to be more confident, boys love a confident girl.” Your bestie tried again.
“I was not born to be confident. I was born to be shy and die alone with my 50 cats.” You claimed as you fell down to your bed. Suddenly there was a knock on your room’s door.
“Yeah?” You screamd to whoever knocked. The door opened and your older brothers head popped in. You stared him with raised eyebrow.
“I heard screaming, is someone dying?” Your brother Zach -yeah, Zach Hyman- asked. You casually shook your head, but of course your lovely bestie had to open her mouth.
“Actually yes. Your sister’s social life is dying as she can’t grow some balls and ask a guy to prom!” She screamed as she threw a pillow at you.
“Is there some certain guy?” Zach asked. You shook your head even more frustrated than before. Out of nowhere another head popped in: William Nylander -a friend and a team mate of your brother.
“What is the problem here?” he asked curiously. You shot a death glare at your bestie and Zach, since they both knew you kind of fancied William. Just kind of.
“My babysister doesn’t have a date to prom.” Zach said trying to cover his laugh. You showed him your middle finger because he was finding your misery funny.
“Really? I’ll take you” William said, which made you, your bestie and Zach laugh -hard.
“I’m being serious.” William said very seriously, making the three of you stop laughing as fast as you started it. Zach looked at William like he was some crazy-minded psycho.
“What? Come on. Every girl should have their princess evening, so if Y/N doesn’t have a date I’ll take her and make sure she has her evening as a princess.” William said seriously. Zach whispered something to William which made William nod and smile a little.
“So? Am I good enough date?” he asked smiling. You just nodded your eyes wide and mouth slightly open. You couldn’t believe your date to prom was this absolutely gorgeous swede.
You and William were walking hand in hand to your school’s gym where the prom was being held. You were a little nervous since you didn’t know William that much. And he was quite a bit older than you. You were 18 and he was soon to be 21, so you kinda felt young and childish.
You two stood in a line, waiting to get inside. William looked at you and then leaned closer to your ear.
“You look very beautiful tonight” he whispered to your ear, which sent shivers all over to your body. You could feel your cheeks heating as you turned to smile at him. He had playful smile on his lips. “You don’t look too bad yourself.” you said to him, gathering all of your confidence.
“Oh my god are you flirting with me Y/N?!” he asked looking shocked. Suddenly you felt like all the blood was drained from your body, you almost felt like panicking.
“Yes! I mean.. N-No! Why would you? Why would- Damn I shouldn’t have- GOD NO!” you said almost literally panicking, afraid he would find out you kind of liked him.
“Chill Y/N. I was just joking. No need to panic” William said laughing. You felt the heat on your cheeks again as he laughed. God this prom was a bad idea.
Finally it was you guys turn to show your tickets and go inside. As you got inside you saw your bestie who was motioning for you to go over to her. You told William you would be back soon and as you were about to go to your bestie William grabbed your hand.
“Just so you know. I know you like me -Zach told me. Don’t worry, I kinda like you too.” William said to you, kissed your cheek and left to go get a drink, leaving you there, very shocked and very much alone.
I’m sorry this is kinda crappy and I have no idea how old students are during prom since I’m not american, hope you liked it though.
