Part of the One Direction Song Series!
Best Song Ever (Fics aren’t related)
You and Tom have known each other since you were in the sandbox.Your moms were best friends in high school and so happened to have you and Tom around the same time.It was luck,destiny,meant to be,whatever you want to call it.But you’ve know. each other since forever.When you guys were ten you shared your guys first kiss.
And when you were fourteen Tom beat up Zach Colby for breaking your heart.The next month you comforted Tom when his girlfriend broke up with him.You shared everything and anything with each other.It was you two against the world.And on a Friday night at his house,you both decided it was only fair to be each other’s first.
That’s when you knew you were in love with Tom.You loved the way he was caring and funny.How he knew the moment he looked at you,if something was wrong.When he looked at you,he would look into your eyes and it would bore into your soul.His laugh that could cure world hate.That smile.Oh,that smile…But it didn’t matter because soon after that Tom started dating someone from another school.It broke your heart,of course.You cried yourself to sleep when you found out.To Tom you were just his best friend,like a sister.But to you,he was so much more than that.
So that’s when you met Connor.He was the popular guys.High school jock.Full ride scholarship.Every guy wanted to be him and every girl wanted him.Except Connor wanted you.It never made any sense but you just went with it.In hopes you forgot about Tom and the love you had for him.It worked…sort of.You pushed those feelings down and swore that after high school,you would rarely ever see Tom.Out of sight out of mind,right?Wrong.
But Tom realized something too.On his eighteenth birthday,his acting career was starting to take off.But his girlfriend called it quits.Tom didn’t really mind though,he knew it would never work.And part of him knew why.His crush on you was starting to get bigger and he couldn’t bear the thought of him being with someone else.But it was too late,you were with someone else.And when he saw you across the table as his family sang him happy birthday,he knew he was in love with you
“Make a wish,Tom”You said and he smiled and made his wish before blowing out his 18 candles
He seen you outside,laying on the trampoline.He walked out and over to you and joined you.You didn’t bother to look up “Hey,what’re you doing all by yourself?”
“I don’t know thinking”You chuckled and turned to look at him “About?”
“College.Life”Tom sighed,he knew you always got in your own head about the future and things of that nature
“Don’t worry about all that stuff.Worry when the time comes,Y/N.I promise,everything will work out in the end”You smiled at him and turned to face him entirely
“How do you know?”
“Because I just know.Trust me”Tom turned to you and as he stared into your eyes he began to move closer.And you didn’t pull back,so he closed his eyes and pressed his lips to yours
When Tom got the invitation in the mail his heart shattered.You were getting married,to Connor.He gripped the fancy invite and sighed.He went to the kitchen and grabbed a beer before opening it and chugging half of it.Harrison came in and chuckled
“Slow down there,mate.Whats up?”Tom clenched his jaw and threw the invitation at him.Harrions rolled his eyes and picked up the envelope.He opened it up and began to read it.His face fell as his eyes ran through it
“Jesus.She’s getting married?”Tom nodded and chugged the rest of the beer. “You see that date.Thats next week”
“Meaning,you don’t send out wedding invites a week in advance.She was holding back.I don’t know in hopes I didn’t come?Fuck”Harrison sighed and clapped his best friend on the shoulder
“Tell her.Its now or never”
Tom walked into the venue and immediately grabbed the champagne people were offering.He drank half of it and moved to go sit in the back.Then he felt a hand on his shoulder “Tom!My god,it’s been so long!How are you?”Your mother moved to hug him,which he returned
“I’m doing good.How are you?”He asked and smiled politely at the woman.He hasn’t seen your mother in months
“I’m doing well.Happy for Y/N…if i’m going to be quite honest,I always thought you two would end of marrying each other”Tom sighed at her sentence and felt his heart start to race.He didn’t know what else to say other than to smile at her again and drink the rest of his champagne.Then the music started
“I must go.See you soon”She squeezed his shoulder and seen Connor on the alter and wished it was him.The doors opened behind him and then you walked out with your father.Tom breathed out and couldn’t believe how gorgeous you looked.The dress,the veil,the bouquet.It was everything he imagined and more.
As you walked down the isle,you felt everyone’s eyes on you.People were taking pictures and crying and smiling.Today was the day.As you got to the alter you hugged Connor “You look beautiful”You smiled at him as the priest began to talk
Your heart was pounding in your chest and the wind was a gently breeze.You turned your neck slightly to see if one of your friends had come,she said she would try to make it.But when you turned,you recognized that curly brown hair from anywhere.Tom.He was here.The boy you fell in love with.The man you were still in love with.
When Connor asked you to marry him,you didn’t want to.You knew it wasn’t right.But you said yes anyway.Because that’s all people were waiting for,was for you two to get married already.You loved Connor,you truly did but you weren’t in love with him.Like you were with Tom.And seeing him,knowing he’s watching you get married to another man,hurt you.
“Do you Connor McLaughlin take Y/N to be your wedded wife”
“I do”He slid the ring on your finger
“Do you Y/N Y/L/N take Connor to me your wedded husband”You looked out in the crowd and seen Tom.The look in his eyes made you question everything and then you looked at connor and seen the hope and love in his eyes.Then you realized that you had been quiet for far too long
“Does anyone object to this marriage.Speak now or forever hold your peace”Just then someone jumped up.
“I have loved you since we were eighteen”Tom gulped as everyone gasped and turned to look at him.People began to whisper in shock as he walked out into the isle “Long before we both thought the same things,Y/N”
Your mouth was wide open as you looked at everyone.You seen your mom and dad near tears,everyone was looking back and forth between the two.And then you looked at Connor and his puppy eyes as he waited for you to say something.But once you met eyes with Tom,you knew your answer.Connor was just a place holder as sad as it was to say.But you’ve always loved Tom,it’s always been Tom.You turned to Connor with tears in your eyes and whispered “I’m sorry”You took of the ring and placed it in his hand and ran towards Tom
His eyes widened but opened his arms to embrace you.People gasped at the display.But you didn’t care,you pulled back and grabbed his hand and ran from the ceremony.Somewhere quiet and where you had your own privacy
“Did you mean it?That you love me?”Tom smiles at you “Every word.I don’t know what’s gonna happen next but I now these arms were made for holding you”
His hands were placed on your cheeks
“Yet all along I know we’d be fine”You said and kissed him.Finally kissing him after years of loving him,he was yours
