Cab you write something where Jeff has a crush on the reader and he wants to ask them out but us scared and the boys hype him up or something like that
I wrote this at the weekend before my brain went to shit & I still have 0 energy to proof read so I apologise in advance❣️ thank u for the request my love!!
Jeff is a smooth talker, waltzes into every room with a quiet confidence that captures other men and women alike, has them eating of his hand with a simple smirk and sweet greeting, no pickup lines or exerted energy necessary.
Until you show up and suddenly he can hardly form a coherent thought, let alone string together a sentence eloquent enough to have you falling into his awaiting arms.
He grows on you with time, uncontrollable fondness spouting in your chest at his stuttered words and clumsy actions, no smooth talker everyone else speaks of in sight.
Jeff fails to see it, how your eyes fill with mirth in his presence, lips always pulled in a smile or playful pout, expression uncontrollably alive at the mere mention of his name.
He doesn’t notice, too lost in his frantic thoughts but the others do.
It’s not all that obvious, particularly with Jeff’s unusually shy behaviour taking precedent in their observation, but it eventually comes to light as the two of you transition from mere acquaintances to friends.
And it’s sweet at first, to watch their cockiest friend melt at every simple and unintentional sentence that leaves your mouth, always battling with his need to be close to you but choking up when you’re in his presence.
But months pass and not much changes except for the way you begin to giggle at his dry jokes and sarcasm, Jeff almost gasps the first time it happens.
David decides on the intervention, casual hang out between the boys in his living room turning to first an interrogation when they’re discussing girls in general before shifting to their own group and inevitably whatever maybe be going on between the handsome man and yourself before Todd and Ilya voice their encouragements, others quick to follow.
‘C’mon man! You need to ask her out, it’s getting painful to watch’ Todd shouts, Scott and Dave nodding along before the latter pipes up, ‘You’ve become an actual puppy.’
Which garners him a sweet ‘fuck off’ from Jeff himself in reply.
‘What’s the problem bro? You’re hot, y/n’s hot…it’s basic math’ Ilya adds on, frustration clear in his face.
A groan escapes Jeff as his head falls back against the sofa, eyesight set on the ceiling as he confides, ‘I don’t know. I - what if she says no? It would be so awkward-’
His best friend interrupts, ‘Jeff, Y/n already likes you alright? You don’t have anything to worry about’ It’s the first time anyone says it out loud.
Todd’s words ringing in his mind as he lifts his head so fast it almost gives him whiplash.
‘She DOES?’ Jeff can’t help but raise his voice, falling into a coughing fit immediately after while the others either roll their eyes good naturedly or nod in confirmation.
‘You don’t see anyone else laughing so hard at your dad jokes lately’ David adds.
‘They have been pretty bad’ Ilya admits, shrugging.
Jeff would be offended, except his mind is busy floating on cloud nine at the prospect of finally having a chance with the girl that’s occupied his every thought for months.
That feeling, along with the encouraging words of his best friends is enough for him to finally take a leap of faith and ask you out that same night when you inevitably show your face alongside the other girls to hang out.
Jeff goes for it in the kitchen, elbow slipping when he overestimates the distance while trying to lean cooly on the counter, his cheeks dusted with pink in embarrassment while you laugh.
It’s worth seeing the pretty smile that stretches across your lips, especially when an excited ‘yes’ slips past them in reply.
