You were best friends with Newt. Even before the Maze, you two were close despite not remembering anything before entering the Maze. When you entered the Maze the month after Newt arrived, you two were inseperable. As time passed and more Gladers showed up, everyone knew you two would end up together. It had to happen, you two got along so well and already bickered like a couple.
However, things were changing. You never admitted to yourself that you liked Newt. You always turned everyone down and told them that he was just your best friend. But after a talk with Thomas–the newest Greenie–you got to thinking.
Every time Newt came around you got butterflies in your tummy. You blushed and felt more relaxed with him. Everything was different when around him, and you two really did act like a couple already. Okay, maybe I do like him a lot… You thought to yourself. But now that you admitted it to yourself, you felt awkward. What if Newt didn’t feel the same and felt like you were coming onto him? Or simply got the wrong idea? You began to push yourself away from him in fear that you’d get rejected.
“Y/N, talk to me. Why have you been so buggin’ distant lately? I don’t like it. Is something wrong?” Newt followed you, concern in his voice.
“Nothing’s the matter, I’m okay. Honest,” you replied, picking up some clothes so you could wash them.
“Stop pretending you’re okay, cause I know you’re not.” He grumbled, folding his arms over his chest.
You sighed, letting out a deep exhale. “We’re not just friends and you fucking know it.” Your tone sounded more annoyed than you wanted it to.
“What are you talking about?” He cocked an eyebrow. “I just want to know why you’ve been so… distant.”
You rolled your eyes, finally looking him in the eyes. “I like you, okay? A lot. And not as a friend. I love you more than a friend. I want you to be my boyfriend. We already act like a couple, and Greenies often think we’re already together when they first see us. God, I love you, Newt. So much, and I’ve been scared of getting rejected by you and changing our relationship forever. That’s why I’ve been distancing myself.”
Newt stood there with a shocked look. It was silent, and you were becoming paranoid. The friendship was over. He would’ve confessed his love back already if he did, but he was still standing there silent. You frowned.
“Well. Yell, scream, say something. Anything!” You raised your voice, not caring if any Gladers heard this conversation.
“I love you, too.” Newt said it so quickly with such determination. You could’ve sworn you misheard him, but you knew you didn’t.
“Holy shit, I can’t breathe.” You exhaled with wide eyes. You looked down at the ground, hand pulling your fringe back.
“What?” Newt stepped closer to you, placing a hand on your shoulder. It was obvious he was concerned.
“I can’t breathe. I feel like I cannot breathe. You love me? You actually love me back? More than a friend? I… What? How? Why?–”
Newt chuckled before kissing you, cutting you off. “Maybe because I find you absolutely breathtaking, and totally badass all at the same time.” He was smiling the entire time he spoke.
“You flatter me,” you replied sarcastically.
“So, want to walk back out to everyone else and show ‘em we’re together?”
Newt offered his hand. You happily took it, and you two walked away from your spot. Once the Gladers saw the hand holding, they all thought the same thing.
It’s about time.
