(Human!Cronus x Shy!Reader) Never Ever
Summer has finally come! But you're not really excited of it. Why? Because you don't have many friends in highschool, being the shy girl you are. Your only friends are John Egbert, the prankster of the school, Rose Lalonde, a fellow writer, Dave Strider, the cool kid, and Jade Harley, the overly cheerful girl.
How do you met them? Well, for John, he once pranked you, and eventually he become friends, Rose, you always meet her in the library, Dave, you once tutored him for Math class, and Jade, she's always nice to everyone, especially to you.
You didn't make any plans for summer, maybe you'll spend your summer with books from the local library, or write some random stories. You are now sitting on your spot in the local library, reading some romance novels,nwhile enjoying the cool breeze of the air conditioner of the library.
Then you hear the bell of the library rings, which means there's a visitor. Peeking through the books, you see your friends, John, Rose, Dave, and Jade. In their hands are some bags, and you know what does this mean. They are going to the beach. And they are going to force you to come with them.
As you hear footsteps coming closer, you quickly crawl to the library corner, and made a fort made of books. When the fort is done, you hug your knees, and wait for them to go by peeking through the books. Luckily, it seems that there's no one around. But you keep cautious and wait.
Well, it seems that they're really have left. You push the books to the side without making any sound, and tip toe to the door. Just as you walk out of the library, a pair of hand covers your eyes, and you scream.
"John, let me go"
"Nope. You're coming with us!"
"But I don't have any clothes!!"
"Don't worry, [Name], Rose and Jade have prepared some for you!"
He drags you to Dave's car, and push you inside. Then after you're inside, he gets in, and Dave hit the gas. Oh, what can be worse today?
When you're arrived at the beach, it's damn crowded, and you hate crowds. As your friends set their stuffs on a spot, Rose hands you a purple and white striped bikini, and tells you to get changed. You lazily walk to the changing room, and once you got there, there's 5 cool and rich looking people in front of the changing room.
You awkwardly walk past them, unaware that one of them is watching you. Right after you got changed, luckily, the rich people is gone, and you run to your friends. When you're back, you see your friends is talking with the rich looking people you saw before. And when John sees you, he waves and beckon you to come there.
As you walk to him, you see one of the rich looking kids is staring at you. He's very good looking, charming, and you somehow can sense a high charisma from him. And he looks kind of familiar.
"[Name], these are my friends I met in the internet! They're really cool, and I know you'll like them! Guys, this is [Name], she's pretty shy, so please talk to her!"
You blush, and fiddle your thumbs nervously. You introduced yourself and vice bersa.Then John, Dave, and Jade play volleyball with Meulin, Kurloz, and Mituna while Rose buys some drinks with Porrim, and all of them brings their bag for mo reason. You're left with Cronus, the one that stare at you earlier. You blankly look towards the sea, enjoying the smell of the salty water.
You tilt your head to him, surprised to see him sit closely to you.
"Wvhat are wve gonna do nowv, doll?"
"Wha? What do you mean?"
Then, there's an awkward silence between the two of you, and you're too nervous to talk to him. So you take out your phone, and decided to scroll down your picture library, which contains your greaser clothes design. Your finger playfully scroll down the screen, while suddenly you feel a hot breath on your neck.
You immidiately duck, and blush when you realized it's Cronus.
"Wvhoa, chill there, doll. I just wvanna look!"
"D-Don't do that..."
"Alright, alright. Sorry. Can I look at your phone nowv?"
"Please don't. It's embarassing"
"But I like greaser style too, ya knowv?"
You eyes gleams in delight when he mentions the word 'greaser'. Then it hits you. His hair, and his unlit ciggarate. He's dresses like a greaser. Then you begin to talk with him about greaser stuffs, which leads to personal things, like why are you shy, or like why he doesn't have a girlfriend. Turns out he's your senior in highschool. So that's why he looks familiar.
He's a nice guy, and you can see it from his eyes. As time passes, you didn't realize it's already sunset, and your friends are nowhere to be seen. Suddenly, your phone goes off, and you receive a text from Rose.
To my dear [Name]
We're truly sorry for doing this, but it seems that we have some things to do, and we left you with Cronus. But don't worry, he'll drive you home.
Rose why the hell did she left you here. It would be so awkward to ask him to drive you. Cronus asks what's wrong, and you show him the text from Rose. He chuckles, and suddenly, his phone goes off, which means he got a text too.
I open the text from Porrim, and blush after reading it. It seems that she read my mind. Or she didn't? It says :
Cronus, all of us know about your crush on [Name], so we set a plan for you.
You'll drive her home with your car, and confess to her.
From Rose, I know [Name] had commited to give a chance to anyone that confess to her.
So don't ruin it, and good luck.
It's getting dark, so I decided it's a good time to drive her home. Packing my stuffs, she also packs hers.
"So, I'll see you tomorrow Cronus"
"Wvait. I'll drive you home, didn't Rose say that you'll go wvith me?"
"Nah, it's fine doll. Let's go nowv"
I hold her hand and lead her to my car. And I can feel her palm are getting sweaty. Is she nervous? I open the door for her, and place her bag in the backseat. I turn on the machine, and hit the gas.
"I'm hungry, let's go for dinner, my treat"
"Nah, Cronus, I'm fine"
After she says that, I can hear a low growl from her stomach, and she curses. I chuckle, and drive to my favourite restaurant. Not so expensive, yet not so cheap. It's near the beach, so I decided to take a seat near the coast.
After the meal, we stay longer to chat, and I'm surprised she enjoyed my company. And it seems that she's more open to me than before. She would laugh more, and it's like her shyness had washed away.
"Doll, can I ask ya something?"
"Sure! What is it?"
"Wvhat's your dream boyfriend?"
"Um.. My dream boyfriend? Loyal, good personality, accept me the way I am. And his appearance, average. What is it Cro? You sound like you're flirting with me~"
"What if I am flirting with you?"
"Let me be honest wvith you. Today, wvhen I sawv you, I think I fell in lovwe wvith you, and I wvanna be yours"
"Th-This is so sudden..."
"Givwe me a chance? Please?"
"A-Alright then... I guess I'll give you a chance..."
Hearing that, I stand from my seat and lift her body, and hug her tightly. She hugs me back, and I feel really happy.
"I lovwe you [Name]"
"Love you too Cronus. Never leave me?"
