They tell you they love you for the first time...
“I have to tell you something” Darry whispered with a slight grimace on his face, he wringed his hands nervously. This was a side of Darry that you had never seen before. “I understand if you don’t accept it.”
“Darry” You whispered sweetly, trailing your fingers down his cheek. “Just come out with it, baby”
“I love you…” He trailed off, looking down awkwardly.
“You love me?” You mumbled, your eyebrows furrowed in confusion. “How can you love me?”
“How can I…?” His head snapped up as he gave you a stern look. “Y/N, you’re so strong and you’re so passionate. You’re nothing like me, you’re soft and gentle and I hurt people without even meaning to. You’re not afraid of anything.”
“I’m afraid of everything, Dar.” You wrapped your arms around his middle, looking up into his eyes. “I’m afraid of not being with you. I’m afraid that everything that makes me happy will be torn away from you… and you, you make me the happiest that I have ever been. I love you too”
“Y/N, I have to tell you something?”
“Hmm?” You hummed as you cut up the vegetables. You were at the Curtis house making them dinner, Darry wasn’t going to be back for hours and you knew that if Soda or Pony tried to cook dinner they’d more than likely burn the house down. “What is it Soda?”
“I love ‘ya.” He said mumbled.
“I’m sorry honey, I didn’t hear that” You put down the knife and you turned to face him. “What did you say?”
“I said that I love you.”
“Oh” You said as your breath hitched. “Oh… um, oh”
“You already said that” He scratched the back of his head awkwardly. “Never mind, just forget that I said anything.” He went to walk away, only stopping as I grabbed at his arm.
“Soda wait, look at me” As he turned, you grabbed his cheeks, pressing your lips to his. “I love you too”
