Summary: College AU, where the reader is placed in the Holland’s family home while studying abroad and they have a love/hate relationship. Until, one night, hate seems like it never existed.
Notes: hope this doesn’t suck!! not sure how i feel about this lol rip
“Hurry up, Tom! I’m gonna be late for class.” You groaned,
hitting your head against the door. You
rolled your eyes when he laughed lightly, you could just imagine him shaking
his head at you for “being dramatic”. If you knew you’d get stuck with Tom when
you registered to study abroad in London, you would have begged for a different
house. His family was amazing, if it just had one Holland less, you’d be ecstatic.
“I’m almost done, calm down. You act like I’ve been in here
for hours. Why can’t you use my mum’s bathroom?”
“She’s in there, and I’m not going to kick her out.”
“But, you’d kick me out?” He asked, feigning offense. Before
I responded, the door opened, revealing a shaggy haired Tom with a towel around
his waist and a towel in his hand. He brought that towel up, rubbing it on top
of his head to dry his hair. “I’m… hurt.” He pouted, placing a hand on his
chest. You only rolled your eyes again, so he’d see this time, and pulled him
away from the door way entry.
“You get on my nerves,” you murmured, moving to shut the
door, which was stopped by his hand. “I need to get ready!” You complained,
which didn’t seem to matter to him.
“If I were you, I’d be nice to me. I still haven’t figured
out if I’m in love with you, too.”
“‘Too’?” You asked,
raising an eyebrow at him. He smirked at you, leaning in. His hair was still
wet and there were droplets falling near my bare feet.
“Don’t fight it, darling,” he whispered, resting his palms
against the doorframe and trying to make himself look bigger. “It’ll come out
“Hm,” you hummed, leaning closer to him, “you’re right.” You
whispered back, causing his eyes to widen. He leaned back when you walked
closer to him, pushing himself off the frame. You grabbed the door knob,
smirking. “In your dreams, Holland.” You said, slamming the door shut in his
face and locking it.
A/N: This is definitely not what the song is about, but I’m glad I managed to figure something out that didn’t involve cheating. My prompt was Magnets by Disclosure, for my querida Marye’s [ @persephone-is-here-omg ] writing challenge. Hope you all enjoy! | masterlist
Listen to Rather Die by Barns Courtney & Bad Reputation by Joan Jett
Two whole weeks pass and both Y/n and Billy are back to their own individual routines. She was working and rehearsing like crazy. Her time is swamped by school work, her friends, and baby sitting the Party. His time is spent screwing around with his friends, smoking cigarettes, and cruising in his car. He’s back to normal and so is she. It’s almost as if they weren’t in each other’s lives for a few days. She hadn’t even batted an eye when she saw him flirt with Britt. He was back to his old ways and she was too.
