Ink (Alex Gaskarth)
Request sent by ANON: Alex Gaskarth imagine
As bored as bored can get, thinking that today would be much different compared to others but nope, God has forsaken you once more with boredom. You sighed for the billionth time as you got bored just heart-ing band imagines all day, which made it into one of your daily routines.
Snapping you out of your daze you got a call from your mom, ‘why was she calling, isn’t she supposed to be inking someone right about now?’ you thought to yourself as you answered it.
"Hey baby, sorry to bother you but um, remember that guy that you liked from that band, um what was it. Times are Low or something?" she said quickly. You rolled your eyes as she said the name wrong.
You nodded your head even though she couldn’t see you, “Yeah, All time Low” you corrected her. “Yeah um that one guy that you said sings like an angel is in my shop y/n” she said happily. “Oh my god mom, don’t mess with me!” you said covering your mouth.
Your heart was beating out of your chest at this point as your breathing faltered from you breathing so quickly. “Nope, I’m serious, come down” She asked. You nodded quickly “Okay okay, be there in five” You said quickly and hung up the phone.
You stopped for a second, you where going to meet the legendary Alex Gaskarth, not in a million years would you think you would even see him in person. You fixed yourself up, making sure you looked your best for him. You sighed in happiness once more and headed over there.
You walked into your moms small tattoo parlor, looking around. You held your breath when you saw your mom in the middle of giving Alex a dagger through a heart shaped tat on his upper arm. You fixed your shirt and walked in.
"Oh hey y/n" Your mom said looking up at you but quickly looked back down to finish her work. Alex looked even more gorgeous this close, he gave you a smile. You smiled back looking down shyly. "Who is this?" you heard Alex ask your mom. You looked up quickly.
"my daughter,y/n, big fan of yours" Your mom smiled in your direction. "Oh a fan huh, well you look very dashing in the band necklace" He complimented. If he was playing a game to see how many times he could make you blush, he was winning, as you felt your cheeks heat up.
"T-thanks, you have nice um …hair" You cursed yourself for stuttering, and ‘you have nice hair, really? He laughed "Thanks, I like your’s as well", you both laughed your shyness away. You two stayed looking into each other, hoping to distracting him from the painful needle going into his skin.
"Damn it" Your moms outburst started both of you. "I ran out of ink, I have to go grab some from the store, do you mind? Half off I promise, and for getting y/n out of the house" She smiled at me and washed her hands.
"Okay only should be a couple of minutes." She said and winked at me before leaving. His tat was almost finished, just minor details left. You sat down on the floor, getting tired of standing.
"What are you doing?" Alex frowned at your actions. "what?" You asked. "Sit um, sit" He looked around for a chair. "Just sit here, I promise I wont bite" He patted his leg. God this boy was driving you crazy, but you did as told. You sat on his lap, looking at each other for a second, then bursting out in laughter, laying your head of his shoulder trying to catch your breath.
Over those twenty minutes of your mom being gone, you and Alex got closer as you two talked about your personal life. You sat there until your mum had to finish his tattoo.
"Hey y/n" he called from his seat as your mom had just finished his tattoo. "What’s up?" you asked. "You wanna maybe show me around, walk around" He asked shyly. Were you making Alex Gaskarth blush? You shook it off.
"Yeah, sure" You smiled. "See you at home mum" You called. "Okay" she said giving you a smile as you walked out with Alex.
"So ms.y/n, why didn’t you tell me you were a fan of peace tea?" he joked as you pulled out a can. You giggled as he poked your sides. "I shouldn’t tell you, it might ruin the peace of the tea" You joked and punched his arm playfully.
You wished that you could say that the day was free of flaws for you and the band member but as soon as some of your class mates walked into the convenient store, your day turned upside down.
Your held your breath as there gazes stopped at you and whispers fell from there lips. They pointed, they laughed, they did as they pleased with your emotions, they were playing with you just to get a reaction and they were getting it.
You knew they were talking about you, like always. ‘Was it getting hot in there?’ You asked yourself as it began to get harder to breath. You tugged on Alex’s arm. “U-um, we should go, it’s u-m, I’m just hot, lets get out of here” you tried to hide your glassy eyes.
But it was to obvious that you were stressed so you headed towards the door. you made it outside and you shook making it hard to see through your tears.
This wasn’t happening to you again, you didn’t want to show weakness, you didn’t want this anxiety, you wanted it to all end. You heard footsteps. Your let out a shaky sigh as you saw Alex in front of you.
”y/n, whats wrong hun” He asked. You shook your head and turned your head. “This is exactly what they want, they want to see me like this, I’m sorry” You cried, trying to calm yourself down. He turned your head to face him.
"Don’t give in y/n, you need to show them that there game isn’t working, cause you know what I see/" he asked holding your cheeks. You shook your head. He gave you a light smile.
He kissed one cheek “I see, a beautiful, fun,” He kissed your other cheek “Smart, and funny girl, not looking down, but up.” He said. You smiled at his actions. He was right though, they made entertainment out of making you suffer, bu that was going to change.
He leaned in slowly and kissed your lips. slowly moving his tender lips against yours and you smiled into the kiss, making his do the same. You held onto his cheeks as he pulled away. Your eyes still closed in this bliss.
"Okay … " You whispered against his lips. He pulled you into his warm arms. You buried your head deep in his chest as he rocked you back and forth.
Never have you felt so free in his arms, you wanted to stay, and he wouldn’t mind … .
