Cole Imagine for Tammi!
You were nervous. Maybe the bracelet was too much, or like too forward. He would probably think you were insane. Why would he want some stupid bracelet with your name on it? It had the superman insignia on the front, and on the back your name was inscribed. You’d worked really hard on it, and its not like if he thought it was atrocious he would throw it back into your face. Cole wasn’t like that. He’s sweet. OK. I’m giving it to him, you think. You were getting pretty close to the table now. The line moved slowly, but it was still too fast for you. You could now see the brim of Dana’s snapback. You could feel how sweaty your palms were becoming, And then you saw Dana’s face. He smiles at you cautiously, was it that obvious how nervous you are?
“How are you?” he says taking your poster and signing. You force a smile.
“Nervous.” you reply with a laugh. Dana smirks.
“Don’t be. We don’t bite.” he says as he passes your poster to David. You and him have a similar conversation, he compliments your hair which you had spent a long time on to impress Cole. He then passes it to Gabe. Gabe doesn’’t really smile, until he sees the bracelet you were carrying.
“That’s for Cole, right?” he asks leaning towards you. You glance towards the end of the table at him. He was smiling up at another fan. You turn back towards Gabe and nod. Gabe smiles. “He’s gonna love it.” he says warmly. He nudges Will. “Ay, dummy, look at what she got Cole.” Will glances from the conversation he was engaged in. He sees the bracelet.
“Oh my gosh, thats adorable he’s gonna love that!” He exclaims. You smile and move down the line. Will signs your poster and then suddenly you’re standing there right in front of him. He beams at you.
“I heard you got me a present. ” he says excitedly. You nod and pull out the bracelet. He smiles at it and takes it from you gingerly.
“I love Superman.” He says as puts it on.
“Well if you ever need a sidekick, my names on the back.” you say with unexpected confidence. He smirks and flips it over. He puts his elbow on the table, pinky out.
“I’ll be your Superman if you’ll be my Lois Lane.” he says with a smirk, hesitant you hook your pinky with his. His eyes linger on your face whimsically. And mybe your eyes were decieving you but was he …gazing at you?
“Now, 5ers, we need your help okay?” Dana say into the mic, rubbing sweat off his forehead. The crowd cheers.
“Your boy Cole kinda fell in love with this girl.” Gabe says leaving out a name. The crowd cheers wildy. Cole blushes sheepishly. Your heart drops.
“Lets call her …Lois Lane.” David says with a smirk in Cole’s direction. Wait. Lois Lane. I’m his Lois Lane. Holy crap.
“And we really need to find this girl because Cole will not shut up about her.” Will says finally.
“So Lois, if you’re still here, please come up here.” Cole says, his voice sounding desperate. He scans the crowd. You hesitantly make your way through the thick and loud crowd of pubescent teenage girls. Dana sees you first.
“I found our Lois Lane.” He says extending a hand for you to get on the stage. Some girls shoot you ugly looks. You climb onto the stage and collect yourself, turning you see Cole. He smiles and makes his way over to you. He takes your hand and pulls something out of his pocket. A necklace with the Superman symbol, he extends it to you.
“Matching set. Like us.” he says into the mic. The crowd makes a collective ‘aw’, Cole smiles at them . You take the necklace gingerly and try to hold back your happy tears.
“Oh will you just kiss her already!” Someone shouts above the quiet rumble of the audience. Cole had obviously heard it because he smirks at you, one eyebrow cocked. He twirls a tendril of your hair between your fingers and leans down to kiss you. There’s no tongue. Just a sweet kiss. his lips feel like pillows. He pulls away. The crowd 'aw’s again. He whispers to you to go wait for him backstage. You nod. Is this really happening, you think as you make your way back stage you clench the necklace in one hand. Yeah this is really happening.
“I’m probably gonna get in huge trouble for that, but shes worth it.” You hear him say. The crowd roars again.
