I was dating this guy for about two weeks now and i was already in love with him. His name was Ronnie and he was quite charming, funny, and stubborn at times, but that only made me more attracted to him. Id never admit that i was head-over-heels in love with him, well, to his face at least. He didn’t care that i was a loner, or a misfit, he thought that made me even more adorable… i don’t know why.
"Hey, darling." He wrapped his tattooed arms around my waist from behind me. I blushed lightly and leaned back against him.
"What do you want?" I tried to play hard-to-get but it just made me sound silly.
"I want you to meet my band." He smiled and turned me around so that i was facing him. I stood on my tippy toes and kissed his nose which made him smile wider.
"Really? You’re finally gonna let me meet the band you always talked about?" I got excited. I’ve always wanted to meet his band,’Falling In Reverse’. Ever since we met he would talk about them all the time, probably because he thought it made him sound cool (Which i admit… it did), But i never really heard of his band before that. After he finally got me to listen to some of their songs, and watch some of their videos, I actually liked them. And not only because he was in it.
"Yup." He finally let me out of his embrace and sat down on the couch casually. "They’re coming in like five minutes."
“Uhh! But the house isn’t clean! We don’t have any snacks! What if they don’t like me??!” I started to panic and get flustered. “If they’re don’t like me then you won’t like me!” I ran to the fridge to try to prepare some snacks quickly.
“Woah calm down, (Y/N).” He tried to calm me. “It’s just my band, I’m sure they won’t care if this place is a mess or if there’s food.” He smiled and I relaxed a little but then the door bell rang and I could here them all laughing and talking to eachother. “I should probably get that.” I nodded quietly and watched him get up lazily and head to the door.
“Wait!” I stopped him. “How do I look?”
He chuckled. “You look fine, no need to worry.” Quickly he opened the door before I could ask any more unnecessary questions out of my nervousness. My heart started racing like a jackrabbit and my breath quickened.
“Hey!!” They all stormed in and instantly flung themselves on the couch and on the floor. I don’t think they realized I was there even though I was hyperventilating and I was sure they could all hear my heart pounding. “What are you watching anyways?” Max asked Ronnie and flipped through channels on the large tv.
“Nothing now, hey guys meet (Y/N),” he smiled and moved to my side to introduce me.
“Woah, who’s the chick?” Jacky winked flirtatiously at me and my anxiety started to return.
“my girlfriend, back off.” Ronnie wrapped his arm around my waist to show that I was his territory.
“I uhhh-” I was panicking even worse. ” I gotta go” I slid out of Ronnie’s grip and ran up the stairs and locked myself in my room. How stupid I must have looked. I was so awkward and so embarrassed that I must have looked like a total jackass out there with all his friends. I could here Ronnie apologizing to his friends then his heavy footsteps up the stairs. A knock sounded on the thin wooden door.
“(Y/N),” he said softly. “What’s wrong?”
“I don’t wanna go out there, I’m making a fool of myself and a fool of you, I’m sorry.” A gear slid down my burning cheek.
“It’ll be fine, just let me in.” I unlocked the door reluctantly and let him into my dull, dark room with posters tacked to the walls. “What happened out there, you’re usually great around people!”
“Yeah, normal people that I know, not famous people that I have to impress because they’re your friends” I wiped the tears away. “I guess it’s just my anxiety acting up again.” I tried to explain.
“Do you wanna go out there and try introducing yourself again?” He smiled and kissed my cheek making it burn even more.
“I dunno, it might get worse and I could pass out.” I made up more excuses.
“I’ll be right by your side, don’t worry, you’ll be fine” he took my hand and led me back down he stairs to his awaiting friends.
“Oh look who came out again.” Derek smiled charmingly.
“This is (Y/N), and this id jacks, Derek, Max, and Ryan.” Ronnie tried again and this time I didn’t pass out or run away.
“Why’d you run away before?” Ryan asked.
“She’s just shy.”
“Yeah sorry about that, it doesn’t happen often.” I got the courage to speak and Ronnie led me to the couch inbetween all of his friends.
“Sorry about making you nervous.” Jacky apologized and I smiled. We spent the rest of the night talking and watching tv and rummaging through the fridge for food
