2p!AmericaXReader: An Ephemeral New Year’s resolution
“I’m gonna be in Hawaii during this vacation while the rest of you freeze your butts off!” Your friend Nene squealed with excitement.
The both of you were in PSAT, the last class of the day. Winter break was going to start but you didn’t wait for Christmas, you knew what you were going to get. You saw your father, dressed as Santa putting present under the tree and heard him muttering about getting you two new sweaters and a new phone, your first one. You were somewhat of a loner and when you tried to make friends you froze up and fainted. It was a miracle that you became friends with Nene; so it never occurred to your parents to buy you phone. Though this time you planned to ask him out, Alfred F. Jones, the bad boy of the school, and you won’t let your shyness get in the way.
Little did you know the same person had a New Year’s resolution of asking you out.
Alfred F. Jones or Al as he liked to be called was going to ask (name) (last name) to be his girlfriend on New Year’s right at midnight, or so he was told by Oliver Kirkland his jovial companion to make the confession more romantic. First he had to get you to go out on him on New Year’s Eve, and he was going to do it by slipping a note in your locker with his name on it. He at first hesitated. What if you rejected him, or ridiculed him, or worse what happens if the others found out he had a crush on you. If Luciano and his gang found out he could never live it down. He would have to go by trial and error, and hope for the best.
You walked out of PSAT class to your locker. As you opened it a note fell out.
I want to hang out on you on New Year’s Eve.
Alfred wrote this! It couldn’t be true; it had to be a joke. Well you wanted to ask him out, but you never expected to ask you. It was an offer to good to refuse. But what about you family, you always celebrated New Year’s Eve together, and you couldn’t break you dad’s heart, he’ll suspect you didn’t want to hang out with your family anymore. Maybe you could convince them.
It was New Year’s Eve, and you could say that this winter break was quite interesting. On Christmas day your dad and came to confess to you that he was Santa this whole time. Not wanting to hurt his feeling you didn’t tell him you knew since you were seven. It was eleven thirty in the night and you were going to ask your parents if you could go out to see some friends.
“Mom, Dad, could I go out to see some friends.” You asked afraid of the answer.
An unworldly silence fell upon the room. What was I thinking? Of course they will never let me go. You thought.
“Of course you can dear. That’s why we bought you a cellphone” You mother said in her sweet voice.
“My dear (name) is growing up I’m so happy.” Your father was crying tears of joy.
You completely taken back by this, you thought they would say no, and lecture you on the outside dangers of this world.
Thanks mom and dad, I’ll promise I’ll call if it’s late.” You told them, a smile on your face.
You grabbed your coat and ran out the door to where Alfred told you to meet him.
After ten minutes of running you met him at the park sitting on a bench with a black trench coat and black boots. Was he there the whole time?
“It’s about time you got here you got here.” He muttered.
“I’m sorry-” you were cut off when he smashed his lips against yours; he pulled away after a minute.
“Look (name), I really like. You’re smart, pretty, and cool. When I first saw you I couldn’t get the courage to tell you that. That’s ironic being the guy who beat up gang members before. But will you be my girlfriend; even if you reject me I at least want closure.” He confessed, expecting a response, but received none.
“(Name)” he said confused.
Your face was completely red and your (e/c) eyes were wide, and your mouth was gaping open. You then did the weirdest thing, you took a deep breath and then…
“YES ALFRED. I’LL BE YOUR GIRLFRIEND! I ALWAYS WANTED TO CONFESS TO YOU, BUT I WAS TOO SHY! I WAS SO HAPPY THAT YOU ASKED ME OUT AND EVEN CONFESSED TO ME!” You yelled out all at once. Embarrassed, you covered your mouth, Alfred then just chuckled.
“You’re really cute (name), I like that.” Alfred said
“I like you as well, Alfred.”
The both of kissed each other in a fever of passion as the grand clock ringed in the New Year. You could say both of your resolutions were ephemeral this year.
