Love at First Catch - Joe Sugg (Requested)
A/N: This was my first time writing in the boy’s POV and I’m not sure about how it turned out…but I wasn’t sure how to do it any other way…lemme know what you think. Feedback is always appreciated. And send in some requests!
I’ve been taking pictures with fans all day long now. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love them. I wouldn’t be where I was today without any of them. But sometimes I just want to take a break so I can sit down. Standing up for hours upon hours at a time is pretty hard work, don’t let anyone ever tell you different.
Taking pictures with fans is one of the most gruesome processes to go through. It’s not like anything special happens. A fan comes up to me, introduces them self, gets a picture with me, and then leaves. It’s the same process over and over. Sometimes I just wish something exciting would happen.
I glance at the long line of people waiting to take a picture with me and try to figure out how much longer it could possibly be. My feet are absolutely killing me. I just want to sit down. I just looked from face to face, there were so many. But then my eyes landed on a specific girl that just seemed to take my breath away. She was just so beautiful. There’s no way she’s a fan of mine. She must be in the wrong line. As I continued to take pictures with fans, she got closer and closer to the front.
Suddenly, I got inspired to take as many pictures as I could as fast as possible. I wanted her up here for a picture right now, but that wouldn’t be fair to the rest of those waiting in line. I just made a format to follow. Say hello, let them say hey back, take a picture and send them on their way. I made quite a lot of progress following this new method.
Pretty soon, she was the next one in line. She was even more beautiful up close. My breath hitched in my throat when she looked up at me and gave me a quick smile. I needed to know the name of this goddess. She was busy making sure that everything looked okay before she was gonna take a picture with me, which was absolutely adorable. Apparently the next person in line after her was getting impatient with her and decided to shove her forward.
Due to that, she stumbled and fell towards me. Of course, I stepped in and caught her. She was so tiny compared to me. She looked up at me with sad eyes, and for some reason that made my chest hurt. I turned to the person who shoved her. “Why’d you do that, mate?”
“Do what?” They asked completely nonchalantly.
“Why did you just shove her?” I asked, getting angry.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, she just tripped that’s all.” They said. “Some people are just really clumsy.”
“Except for the fact that I saw you shove her.” I said, “It was quite rude.” With that I turned my attention back to the nameless beauty before me. “What’s your name, love?”
“Y/N,” She replied in a tiny voice. I could tell she was nervous.
“Well, you obviously know I’m Joe,” I said giving her a smile. She gave one in return and I felt my chest tighten. She came up next to me for the picture and I whispered to her. “I should be done pretty soon, can you meet me in a couple hours by the entrance?”
She looked up at me with eyes full of surprise. “You want me to meet you somewhere after this?”
“Of course, I want to get to know you a bit, Y/N.” I smiled. “So, will you meet with me?”
“Yeah, sure! Definitely.” She gave me a wide smile. It made me so happy to know that I made that happen.
“Great, meet me around say, 7?”
“I’ll see you then, Joe.” She turned to go. “Thank you for the picture.”
“Anytime,” I responded. And with that, she walked away. I couldn’t wait to meet with her later.
(3 hours later)
It was finally time to meet with Y/N. Part of me was afraid that she wasn’t going to come. She probably got caught up in the fact that there are so many other people here and forgotten about boring old me. However, as I walked to the entrance, I saw her sitting on a bench sipping on a drink and wrapped up in her phone. I walked up and sat down right next to her.
She didn’t notice I was there until I spoke up. “Hello, Love.”
“Oh my goodness, you scared me!” She giggled, bloody hell I could get used to hearing that. No, what was I thinking, I just met this girl.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to!” I said, smiling slightly. For some reason, I couldn’t find myself with a straight face around her. It’s almost as if my face had a permanent smile on it when she was near. “So, I was thinking, we should get together sometime, yeah?”
“Get together?” She asked sheepishly.
“Oh was that too soon?” I asked nervously. “I’m sorry, I just have this feeling that I need to see you again. I don’t know what exactly it is, but I’m just gonna roll with it.”
“Joe, you honestly have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to hear those words come out of your mouth.” She giggled.
“Really?” I asked. “Is that true?”
“Oh my gosh yes.” She sighed. “I’ve been a huge fan of yours ever since you started your channel. Sitting here and talking to you is like a dream come true for me. I still expect to wake up any second now in bed.”
“You know, I could say the same thing.” I admitted. “When I saw you in line, I found myself having a hard time keeping my eyes off of you. I started to go through fans faster because I wanted to take a picture with you.” She smiled at me. “By the way, I’m going to need a copy of that photo myself.”
“How will I give it to you?” She asked. “It’s not like I have your number to text it to you or anything.”
“I can think of an easy solution for this problem.” I said. “Can I see your phone for a second?” She just handed it over to me and I punched in my number. “Now just send me that picture and we’re good to go.”
“Do- do you want me to delete the number after I send the picture?” She asks me hesitantly.
“Of course not, just promise me you won’t leak it or anything. That’s the only thing I’m worried about. Besides, if you deleted it, how would you know it’s me when I text you?”
“You’re gonna text me?”
“I plan to keep in touch with you for a long time, Y/N.”
(Flash forward 4 years)
“Can you believe it’s been 4 years since I met you?” Y/N asked me, coming down the stairs to our flat. “I mean, I never would have believe anyone if they told me I would end up dating the Joseph Sugg, YouTuber extraordinaire.”
“Well, believe it because it’s real.” I chuckled. “Come here, Y/N.” She comes over and I pull her so she’s on my lap. “Do you remember how awkward I was when we got together after the pictures?”
She giggles (I still love that sound), “Of course I do, it was so cute.”
“Well, I’m glad you thought that. Because I’m going to be totally honest with you here.” I start out. “You know how people talk about love at first sight?” She nods, “Well, I’m pretty sure that’s what happened when I saw you standing in that line. I had a feeling there was something special about you. Apparently I was right because we’re getting married in a few weeks.”
Y/N just kissed me and I continued, “Well, to be honest, it might have been love at first catch. I just remember everything leaving my mind except for the fact that you were shoved. I still don’t know why I got so angry over that so quickly.”
“I’m not so sure either.” She adds, cuddling into me. “But I’m sure glad you were there to catch me.”
I pull her close. “I’d catch you any day, Y/N.” She smiles up at me. “And that’s a promise.”
