Your POV

"Uhh there's a slight problem," the head of the yearbook committee told us.

We were all sitting around a table in one of the classrooms. Anna called us here because she said she needed to talk to us. And by us, I mean C/N, B/F/N, B/F/N's boyfriend and I.

"What's the problem?" I asked confused.

"Well, you know about the cutest couple section in the yearbook right?"

We all nodded our heads, urging her to go on.

"Well uhh. You guys tied," she grimaced.

"Ehhhhhh?!" B/F/N and I yelled.

"How? Has that ever happened before?" C/N questioned.

"No, it hasn't. That's why we're taking a re-vote in the school so I suggest you try to be as cute of a couple as possible in the next few days," she said.

"Well I already know C/N and I can win," I said jokingly.

B/F/N's boyfriend grinned, "Sure Y/N. But B/F/N and I are definitely the cutest couple in the school."

"We'll see," C/N said.

*Times skip to next day*

"I think this will do," I stated, looking at myself in the mirror.

C/N is wearing a red flannel with black jeans and a red bandanna. We decided to dress alike so I'm wearing almost exactly what he is but instead of a red bandanna, I'm wearing a red choker.

C/N came up behind me wrapping his arms around my waist and resting his head on my shoulder.

"You look cute," he gave me a kiss on the cheek.

"You too," I giggled.

"Let's go walk to school," he said as he grabbed my hand leading me out my bedroom.

We walked to school holding hands. Honestly, we would still be doing this even if there wasn't a competition for the cutest couple. But, this just gives us more of a reason to act all lovey-dovey. (Which is fine by me)

As we walked onto school campus I spotted B/F/N's boyfriend giving her a piggy-back ride. Kids were taking pictures of them as they both smiled.

"EH? Why are they taking pictures of them? We're obviously cuter," C/N grumbled.

I laughed, "It's okay. You'll get your attention later."

We walked to our lockers. Ours weren't too far from each other so right when I grabbed my books, C/N automatically took them from my arms and carried them for me. I felt a bit bad since his books and my books together were probably really heavy.

"Are you sure you want to carry mine?" I asked.

He flexed his free arm smirking, "Of course, look at these bulging muscles."

"Sure C/N," I rolled my eyes and gave him a peck on the lips.

"Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" I heard one of my classmates scream after snapping a picture of C/N and me.

A week passed as what our grade liked to call the "couple goals competition" continued. So many pictures of C/N and I and B/F/N and her boyfriend got printed onto the school's newspaper which earned some disapproval from teachers but caused a lot of uproar from our classmates.

Our school got so involved that they actually started ship names and making polls on Instagram to see who is cuter and such. It was hard to tell which couple had the most people in favor.

Finally, the day came when the head of the yearbook committee announced in the school newspaper which of the couples won.

I waited in front of my locker for C/N who automatically sprinted to go get a newspaper. Even though we didn't earn much but bragging rights if we won, I was still a bit nervous about the results. C/N and I did a lot of cute couple things over the week and I didn't really want it to end.

I spotted C/N walking down the hallway as I looked up from the tile floor. He was hanging his head and trudged over me.

I sighed trying to comfort him and his pride, "It's okay C/N, it's just a title in a book."

"Oh, I didn't know that's how you felt about it because WE WON!" he screamed jumping around.

"OH MY GOD REALLY?" I yelled jumping up onto him as he caught me by the waist.

"I told you we are the best couple," he whispered pulling me to him and kissing me on the lips.


I'm a single pringle while my best friend is taken. Can anyone relate?
