~~~~~~~~~~ is a Time Lapse
You ran your hands through your hair as you waited for Morgan’s text. You were anxiously awaiting the beep notifying you that the two were heading home.
Instead of the beep, however, you heard the front door open and people talking. You walked out and were greeted by the sight of Mo and Jake, chatting and pushing each other as they walked through into the hall.
Thanks for the warning Morgan.
“Y/Ni, what are you doing here?” Jake asked with a perplexed look on his face.
“Um, I was just…”
“I invited Y/N over for lunch too, I hope that’s okay.”
You were glad for Morgan’s interruption, as you weren’t sure what to say.
“Yeah sure, that’s cool.” Jake answered with a smile, clearly not suspecting a thing.
After the boys set their stuff down and you ordered in some food for lunch, the three of you sat down in the living room, eating and chatting about their practice and upcoming games.
You could tell Mo was becoming more antsy as time went by. He was playing with his hair; bouncing his knee; cracking his fingers and chewing his lip. All things you had learned were nervous quirks of his.
Jake must have realised too.
“What’s up with you today, Mo? You’ve been acting weird all day.”
You inhaled sharply and turned to face Morgan, waiting for his reply.
“Uh, there’s something I have to tell you man. I’ve, uh, been seeing someone and I love her, and I’m pretty sure she’s the one.”
Okay that you were not expecting.
“Aw that’s great man. I’m happy for you. When do I get to meet the lucky girl.” Jake asked with a large grin.
Oh god, no, you weren’t ready for this.
“Uh, you’ve actually already met her.” Morgan replied, and turned to look directly at you.
Jake followed his eyes and looked towards you, first with a confused expression and then with an angered one.
“What the hell. My sister, you’ve been seeing my sister?!” Jake shouted, making you flinch.
You attempted to calm the situation, “Jake…”
“No, you shut up. I want to here it from him.”
You were shocked by Jake’s reply and honestly a little hurt, he’d never spoken to you like this before.
Jake continued when he noticed Morgan hadn’t replied, “How long, Mo. How long have you been seeing her behind my back?!”
“Uh, just over a month. But I’m serious Jake, I love Y/N, more than anything.”
“So do I, Jake. I love Morgan, so much.” You told him, trying to convey how serious you were about all this.
“I can’t deal with this right now. I can’t believe you could do this to me, Y/N. I had one rule, which you promised you’d never break. I have no more words. Don’t speak to me ever again, I can’t bear to look at you.”
The tears streamed down your face as Jake spat the words at you.
He pushed past you and grabbed his bag, slamming the door on the way out.
As soon as the door closed, you let out a loud sob and fell to the ground, letting your emotions take over. You could feel Morgan’s arms around you, trying to soothe and comfort you, but all you could see was the betrayal on Jake’s face as he walked out.
It had been almost a month since you had last spoken to Y/N and although that made you feel horrible, you still weren’t over the betrayal and hurt you had suffered.
Every day you felt the glares radiating off Mo, for the way you were making Y/N feel, and it left a sour taste in your mouth. You wished you could fix it, apologise, but it still hurt too much knowing she had kept that from you and went behind your back like that. She hadn’t even been forthright about it.
You were sitting in your stall after practice one day, untying your skate laces, when you felt someone standing in front of you.
As you looked up, Morgan’s face greeted you, and he didn’t look happy.
He never did these days, and that was your fault.
“You need to speak to Y/N and apologise. I don’t care if you don’t approve of our relationship, it’s not going to stop us from being together. It sure as hell is making Y/N upset though. She cries herself to sleep every night, and that’s your fault. All because your not man enough to let your sister be happy. You better fix this.”
You opened your mouth to reply, but shut it when you seen the look on his face and simply nodded instead.
It had been a few hours since your chat with Morgan and you stood outside the door to his apartment, gathering your thoughts and preparing yourself.
You knew Y/N was inside, Morgan had told you as much, and you knocked on the door quickly before you chickened out.
Mo answered and directed you inside, before heading off towards his bedroom to give the two of you privacy.
“Hey…” you spoke softly.
Y/N turned to face you and you seen a sad smile quickly appear on her face.
“What are you doing here?” She asked, just as quiet.
“I came to apologise. I’ve been an idiot, a jerk, an ass. I should never have reacted like that, it was out of order and I’m sorry.”
“No, please let me finish. The reason I acted like that is because hearing that the two of you were together made me realise that my baby sister was growing up and that she wasn’t the little girl I used to carry about on my back, or play dollhouse with. Morgan’s a great guy, and I know he’d never hurt you. He told me you’ve been crying yourself to sleep, and that hit me like a punch in the gut. I can’t believe I made you that upset, some big brother I’m supposed to be.”
Y/N got off the couch and came over to stand beside you, placing her hand on you arm.
“Hey, no, Jake. Look I should never have kept that from you, or started dating one of you teammates, I knew the rules and should have stuck to them.”
“You can’t help who you fall in love with, though, and I was too much of an angry idiot to realised that at first. How can I be mad at you for something that isn’t even in your control? I hope you can forgive me, Y/Ni.”
“Ofcourse I can Jake, you’re my big brother. I love you.” Y/N replied with a smile and wrapped you in a tight hug, which you gladly reciprocated.
“And hey, I’ll always be your baby sister okay? You’re allowed to protect me sometimes. Just maybe next time don’t go a whole month without talking to me, okay?”
“Deal.” You responded with a smile.
Hope you enjoyed! Requests are open! Thanks for reading!
