"I love you" my blurted words rang awkwardly in the air between Scott and I. I didn't mean to say them, I didn't want to say them first. Why does my stupid mouth have to speak before my brain can stop it.
I finally drew the courage to look up at a dumbfounded looking Scott. His mouth kept opening and closing as if he were trying to come up with a response and I knew I had blew it. Of course he doesn't feel the same way. We've only been dating for two months. I'm so stupid.
"I'm sorry, just forget it" I mumbled, shooting up from the grass and rushing off of the lacrosse field. I ran a frustrated hand through my hair just walking back toward the school.
"You blew it Liam, you blew it!" I growled at myself once I was safely in the confines of the locker room. There's gotta be some way I can get myself out of this. I didn't mean it? I spoke wrong?
I groaned as I leaned against the wall allowing myself to sink to the floor. I buried my face in my hands, shaking my head. It was only a minute or two before I heard it.
"Liam? Liam? Please tell me you're in here?!"I heard Scott shout in a worried tone. I didn't bother speaking up as I slowly lifted my head in time to see him round the corner. I watched frown creep onto his face as he came up in front of me and crouched down to my eye level.
"You don't have to say it Scott, I get it" I sighed, turning my head toward the tiled floor. I heard Scott let out a sad sigh before he spoke up again.
"Look at me Liam?" he pleaded, but I kept my eyes glued on the floor. I couldn't even bare the thought of looking at him. This was so humiliating.
"Please just go Scott" I whispered in a soft voice and that's when I felt Scott's warm fingers slide around my chin and turn my face to look at him.
"Liam, you are such a drama queen" Scott stated with a hopeful grin, probably trying to make me laugh. I could help the small smile that slipped onto my lips at his joke.
"See, that's what I was looking for" he smiled and I let my smile falter slightly.
"Liam, about what you said out on the field" he started but I held up a hand.
"Please don't Scott" I begged "I get it, I made a mistake. I'll keep my distance."
"No, you don't understand" he started and I sighed. What could I possibly be missing. His silence earlier had said it all.
"Liam, you keeping you're distance is the last thing that I would want" he insisted.
"I'm the freak that said I love you Scott! And you obviously don't feel the same way. I wouldn't want to hang out with me either" I offered and I Scott tried to cut in.
"But Liam, the only reason-"
"And I'm completely humiliated so just talking about this kind of sucks" I continued.
And I know that you are just trying to be a nice guy" I lolled on.
"Liam will you please listen to me!" he yelped.
"What?" I sighed.
"I'm trying to tell you that I love you" he finally breathed "and you would've known that if you'd given me a minute to process. The only reason I hadn't responded before you walked off wasn't because I didn't love you, it was because you just caught me off guard."
"I love you Liam" he continued on "and that's why I don't want you to keep your distance." I found a small smile starting to form on my face, and then I did something that I never thought I'd do. I kissed him.
Hey guys, so there is another one shot! I hope you all enjoyed and I promise to update again really soon! Thanks for reading.
P.S. The update on the new story I'm writing is here. I official decided on the ship I'm using based on you votes. And the ship that the book is going to be about is : SCOTT/LIAM
Sorry if this isn't exactly the ship you wanted, but it's what got the most votes and also it's the one ship that I haven't written about from the choices. I have high hopes for this book and I just hope that you guys will like it when I finally post the first chapter! ^_^
