warnings: lil bit of bryce the predator but mostly fluff and :)
a/n: this is my first time writing an imagine for Zach / 13 reasons why so !!!! I love ross butler !!!!!!!!!!!
“Y/N, come and join us!” You glanced over your shoulder, spotting the gang crowed into a circle in the sitting room but more specifically, you spotted Bryce who was waving you over.
You rolled your eyes, smiling slightly as you told Clay you’d be back after a round of whatever they were playing. He nodded, turning to Hannah to continue their conversation and you left to join the rest of your friends.
You ignored Bryce who was insisting you sit beside him but you had very little trust in that boy, so instead you sat in the empty space beside Zach.
But Bryce was a persistent little guy, unused to the dismissal of his efforts from a girl and so he shooed the guy on your other side and seated himself next to you.
You rolled your eyes, relaxing your head back against the sofa to which Zach released a bout of laughter. You smiled, resting your head against Zach’s shoulder as you watched your friends decide on a game.
A/N: Hi everyone! I was finally able to write another imagine! This wasn’t requested though, the idea just suddenly popped into my head and I just ran through with it haha. I’m gonna get the requests started so that I can post them soon and re-open my ask box for more requests. I hope you enjoy this one. It’s a bit short and straight to the point lol.
Overview: Reader likes Zach. Zach likes reader. Their friends think they should date and they all end up playing spin the bottle. What could possibly go wrong? Or perhaps, what could possibly go right?
“Hey Y/N, you should totally come to Jessica’s party later.” Justin says as he nudges my arm.
“Hmm, yeah sure I guess. I mean I don’t have anything to do tomorrow anyway so sure, I’ll come.” I reply with a small smile.
“Really!? That’s great!” he replies his fists throwing up in the air in joy.
“Calm down Justin. Uhm, who else is coming?” I ask and let out a laugh.
“Just the usual, Hannah, Clay, Sheri, Alex, Monty, Tony, Jeff, Zach.” he answers.
“Zach?! Zach is coming?” I reply as my eyes widen in shock.
Zach, Zachary Dempsey. How do I begin to describe Zach? 6foot3 in height, dark brown hair, milk chocolate colored eyes, plump lips, nose accurately shaped by the Gods, and his smile, oh his perfect smile. He was the captain of the basketball team in our school.
Every single girl in our school swooned over his presence, you can almost hear their hearts race whenever he walks through the hallway. Almost all of the girls had a crush on him, and all of them had no chance with him, and that included me. Although he was this popular, social butterfly in our school, he still kept the right amount of distance to others, which made him seem mysterious and cold.
We’ve always been close, and he was one of the people I often share my secrets too. In our group of friends, Zach and I always get teased. They’d always tell us that we should go out, we should date each other and stuff like that, but for some reason it never actually happens. I’ve heard some of my friends say that he liked me, and I mean like, like, not as a friend but as something more, but I just ignore them. I mean, yeah, I like him too, but I’m just not the kind of person to make the first move. I kind of like what we have now, we’re really close, special friends and I like how comfortable I am whenever I’m with him.
Everytime he’d flash his smile at me, everytime I’d tease him because he’s abnormally tall for his age, everytime he’d give me a back hug, everytime he’d feed me food when I’m busy, everytime he’d whine when I beat him in a video game, all of the little things made me fall more and more in love with him everyday. It’s just a shame that I can’t confess to him and that he hasn’t tried telling me what he feels too, if ever he did feel anything for me.
“Y/N.” Justin calls my name.
“Y/N!” he snaps his fingers in front of my face as I awaken to reality and realize I’ve been staring blankly, thinking about Zach.
“Oh! I’m sorry.” I jump as I give him a faint smile.
“The bell just rang.” he says as he stands up from his seat and laughs at me.
“Oh it did? Ugh, sorry I was kind of lost for a moment there.” I reply as I stand up to get my backpack.
“I’ll see you at Jess’ later, okay?” he says as we walk side by side to leave the classroom.
“Oh yeah okay. See you later!” I reply as I wave my hand goodbye and walk to the other direction to my next class.
Anonymous said: Hi i hope you feel better soon! Also, I was wondering if you do a group fic? Like maybe some of the 13rw characters playing together? the jocks, tony, clay, hannah, jeff, jessica, alex and reader playing truth or dare or spin the bottle and just pure shenanigans. It’s completely up to you. :)
GEN FIC X READER
“What the hell was Hannah thinking?” You mumble, clinging onto Tony’s arm tighter as the both of you walk up the sidewalk of Jessica Davis’ home. “I can’t walk in heels!”
“A.) They’re chunky heels, so I have no idea why you’re acting like a newborn giraffe and B.) I told you to change into the sneakers I had in my car.”
“Eat me, Padilla.”
Tony laughs out loud, stopping before the front door and looking at you in amusement. “Barking up the wrong tree here, Y/L/N.”
Glad to not have to concentrate on walking, you grin at Tony and set your chin on his shoulder. “Which is why I absolutely adore telling you these things,” you coo. “You know I only say them all in good fun.”
4. “Why are you so against us being together?”
16. “Yeah don’t act so interested.”
A secret. That’s what we were. Just a secret. He was popular and I was just normal. Jeff Atkins. The boy who loved baseball, the boy who I was dating.
The boy who kept us a secret.
I thought I loved him, but then Zach Dempsey came to me after the storm. Maybe I needed a change from him.
So why did we end up here?
Jessica Davis’ party. The first party of the school year. Of course I didn’t want to go, but Monty wanted to play matchmaker with me.
He didn’t know I had a boyfriend, but he insisted I needed a boyfriend. So he forced me to come here.
“(Y/n) what’s up?” Monty smiled as he threw his arm around me.
“It’s a party, I’m pretending to have fun,” I flashed a small sarcastic smile at the baseball player.
“How about you play beer pong with me and have actual fun while looking for a boyfriend?” Monty wiggled his eyebrows
“No way I’m not getting drunk. I have to drive home,” I laughed,“ Besides I’m not good at beer pong, find me when you find an easier game.”
“Easier?” He laughed,“ Beer pong is just throwing a ball, but I’ll find you if a game pops up.”
“I’ll be playing matchmaker with Clay and Hannah,” I waved at him,“ Don’t get too drunk, you’re driving home.”
“Yes ma'am,” He waved at me as I walked away to find my two friends.
“Hannah Baker and Clay Jensen at a party?” I asked as I sat with them,“ Jeff force you here?”
“Yeah- Well he forced me here,” Clay smiled,“ I forced Hannah to come.”
“Yup totally forced,” Hannah joked around,“ Did someone kidnap the great (Y/n) and force her to come to a party?”
“Yes I was kidnapped by the evil man Montgomery De La Cruz and forced here to find a boyfriend,” I sighed dramatically,“ He also sent me on a quest, to set up a couple!”
“And who is that couple?” Hannah asked while raising an eyebrow.
“You two!” I exclaimed as I pushed them together and ran off.
Now that was the first stupid decision of the night. Maybe if I didn’t run off this wouldn’t have happened
“(Y/n)!” Monty called out to me,“ Come here.”
“Montgomeryyyyy!” I smiled at the boy,“ What’s up?”
“I was looking for you! There’s an easier game going on, it’s called truth or dare!” Monty pointed to the other side of the room.
“Oh God you’re gonna force me to play,” I laughed to the boy,“ I’m going to go. You’re playing, right?”
“Of course, I’m the most daring person you know,” Monty winked at me as we walked towards the group.
“Sure Monty whatever you wanna think,” I laughed,“ Your winking isn’t going to get you anywhere.”
“Yeah (Y/n) don’t act so interested,” Monty joked around while shimmying.
I took my phone out and recorded him dancing while laughing,“ That’s going on my story.”
“Of course it it,” He sat next to me,“ We’re playing now.”
“(Y/n)? Playing truth or dare?” Zach raised an eyebrow while throwing his arm around my shoulder,“ Well this got interesting.”
“Oh Zach I’m not that interesting if the dare aren’t interesting,” I smirked,“ So let’s play.”
“Okay continue Bryce,” Zach waved his hand at the rich boy.
“I’m gonna be boring and pick,” Bryce moved his hand until he was poking at Jeff,“ Okay Atkins truth or dare?”
“Dare,” Jeff yelled out it joy,“ Come at me.”
“You know maybe you and Jeff would make a good couple,” Monty leaned over and whispered to me.
“Maybe,” I whispered back,“ But you know, Hannah and Clay make an even better couple.”
“I thought Clay was dating Tony?” Monty whispered to me as Bryce said the dare.
“Kiss the most beautiful girl here,” Bryce had slurred out.
Jeff sent a look to me as I looked away
He looked around and he stood up, walking towards a red headed girl her smiled at her.
“Would you mind?” He asked her and leaned down.
She shook her head and leaned up.
I looked at Zach as they kissed,“ Oh Zach let’s go, gotta check on Clay and Hannah.”
“What? (Y/n) the game just started,” Zach whispered.
“Just please,” I pleaded the boy,“ Come on.”
He nodded and took my hand and lead me to a quiet room,“ What’s wrong?”
“I, I need to tell you something,” I teared up as I spoke,“ I’m in love with Jeff Atkins, we’ve been secretly dating for a few months.”
“You’ve been dating Atkins?” Zach asked as he raised his hand and wiped a fallen tear.
I nodded as a few more tears started to fall,“ But he said he loved me… Am I not pretty enough?”
“That’s bullshit,” Zach burst out,“ You are the prettiest girl at that circle, maybe in the whole fucking world. If Jeff can’t see that it’s his fault. Because I can see that clearly.”
“Zach.” I whispered,“ I am in love with Jeff… Well, I thought I was.”
“Yeah but you deserve so much better,” Zach snapped back,“ You deserve the world.”
“Why are you so against us being together?” I snapped.
“Because I’m helplessly in love with you (Y/n),” He rushed out,“ I have been for a while.”
“Zach Dempsey the future marine biologist slash basketball player is in love with me?” I whispered to myself, not believing his words.
“Yes (Y/n) (L/n) I’m in love with you,” He whispered,“ Maybe you should give me a chance.”
“Maybe I will,” I whispered as I hugged him tightly.
