“What on earth is that?” Asked the bewildered android, watching as the human girl pulled an odd looking device out of a seemingly hidden compartment under her bed.
“It’s a record player, dummy. These things go way back, like 1950′s.” The girl replied with a short giggled, blowing the dust off of the ancient device as an attempt to make it less filthy.
Two of the crew members aboard Prometheus, David the Android and Dr (Y/n) (L/n), had become bored and annoyed with Meredith’s constant orders and the shenanigans of the other crew members, and wanted to find something to do. And of course, what instantly popped into (Y/n)’s mind was the record player she had brought onto the ship, even though she was told to leave it behind by Meredith. She couldn’t bare part with it, it was her most prized possession, and she was bringing it no matter what.
Although David was a very intelligent android, he wasn’t familiar with the item. He’d never seen one in real life, and wasn’t exactly clear on it’s main purpose.
That, however, was what he was about to find out.
“C’mon, I don’t think anyone is in the main room, we can go there,” (Y/n) suggested, the blonde cocking his brow slightly in confusion.
“What’s wrong with your room?” He asked.
“There’s not enough space,” She explained, only confusing him further as he tilted his head slightly.
“But the record player is so small. There’s plenty of space,”
(Y/n) couldn’t help but giggle at his oblivious statements, carefully lodging the device under her arm before she locked her hand onto David’s wrist.
“Just come on, you’ll see what I’m talking about in a minute,” She urged.
David simply followed quietly behind her, and she couldn’t help but giggle once more when she thought about him. It was no secret that she had perhaps the biggest crush on David ever, but when the others found out, they didn’t like it in the slightest. (Y/n) understood why, it was because David’s an android, she’d only be wasting her time considering he can’t feel. But sometimes, she truly did wonder about him. He seemed more human than any of the other crew members, and she latched onto that. Now there wasn’t a second she wasn’t with him, even if it meant she was frowned upon by her fellow crew members.
Within less than a minute, they arrived to the main room where the pool table was. That was where (Y/n) had placed her record player, and what David hadn’t noticed was that she had three records with her.
“Alrighty David, what do you think? Cyndi Lauper, David Bowie or Ben E. King?”
He wasn’t familiar with any of the artists, but the situation was beginning to make more sense to him.
“Dealer’s choice,” He replied, (Y/n) smiling a little as she went to her favorite of the three, Cyndi Lauper, and took the record out of it’s case before setting up the record player.
Once it had been set up, a soft slow dance song began filling the air. Time after time, (Y/n)’s favorite of the entire artist. She took a deep breath before turning to David and rushing slightly over to him so she wouldn’t miss any of the song to dance with, taking his hands into hers gently.
“Do you know how to dance?” She asked.
“I…It’s not in my programming, no,” He responded, slightly sheepish.
“Well, I’ll teach you real quick, it’s super easy…” (Y/n) pulled David in closer and placed his hands on her waist.
Her lovely waist, as David would describe it.
And as she did, he felt his synthetic gut twist and fill with butterflies.
(Y/n) was the only human who had ever treated David with respect. Like a person rather than a dog. And for that, he was filled with the motive to protect her, stay by her side and do whatever she asks of him, treat her like a goddess. She was perfect to him, and he thought it was such a shame that something so beautiful had an expiration date. But after all, beauty doesn’t last forever.
“…Just hold my waist, and let the music do it’s magic…” She almost whispered, placing her hand upon David’s shoulders, “…focus on me.”
Since he had never danced before, (Y/n) started them off by swaying gently to the music, to the voice of Cyndi Lauper. David stayed focused on her while he moved as she did, trying his best to start getting the hang of it. But what he hadn’t noticed was that he was more focused on the way they moved, rather than who he moved with, and that was what was making this so difficult for him.
(Y/n) noticed this by the way he stiffened up every time he hadn’t moved accordingly to her. So, she moved in closer, so that their bodies were almost against each other’s. Her small hand reached up slowly, and ever so gently did she brush his hair to the side. And in that very moment, David became lost in her beautiful, glossy (e/c) eyes, slowly snaking his arms around her waist and pressing their bodies even closer together. (Y/n) wrapped her arms around his neck, and they swayed with fluidity and somehow even perfection. They had slipped into their very own universe, built only for the two of them and the song to live in. They didn’t have to hear from anyone else on the ship, they didn’t have to deal with any issues or arguments, they only had to be in each other’s arms and move as the music told them. It was pure bliss, and David felt like the luckiest man in the world, seeing as (Y/n) was the woman he had in his arms.
(Y/n) couldn’t help but notice that David had started taking control, which was surprising considering he was struggling only a moment ago. But it was never an unwelcome presence.
“…I though you said you didn’t know how to dance…you’re practically taking me off my feet…” She whispered, the android smiling sweetly as he replied.
“Well it just so happens that I have the best dance teacher in the world,”
(Y/n) smiled sheepishly at the comment, her eyes flickering from his collar bone and back up to the icy grey-blue eyes of his. They were so captivating, as was he for that matter.
David couldn’t control the artificial emotions that were swelling in his chest cavity. She was so perfect, it wasn’t fair that she was mortal. He wanted to have her forever, but he knew that’d never be possible. He knew he needed to savor every second of life she had. And that was indeed what he planned on doing.
“…(Y/n)…do you remember…the kiss we shared in the laboratory?”
At the question, the human felt her face flush red as the memories lost to her in that moment flooded back. But the second they did, she couldn’t help a sweet smile.
“How could I forget? We were working with Dr Shaw on god knows what project, and you had me so distracted that I ended up cutting my finger open with a bloody scalpel. Then, you took me to the bathroom and fixed me up. And…then it happened, out of absolutely no where,”
(Y/n) thought back to the kiss. She remembered the way David pinned her to the wall and gently pressed his lips to hers. It was a passionate and love filled kiss, and that was when it became obvious to her that David didn’t think like other androids. He was different.
Slowly, David raised one of his hands from (Y/n)’s waist, and eventually it found it’s way to her jawline. His fingers traced it, and they ended up pinching her chin ever so gently. He stared at her intensely, so aware of where he was, what he was doing. Who he was with.The fog of his mind cleared, and sentence fell from his lips.
“I think I’m in love with you.”
(Y/n) almost gasped, but all she managed was a wide eyed stare with her mouth slightly ajar. She nearly thought she was dreaming, but it all became beyond real when David moved in closer. And as he did, so did she. Her hand found the nape of his neck, and he held her back steady and dipped her backward ever so slightly.
They paused for a moment, and listened.
“If you’re lost you can look and you will find me, Time after time.”
The feeling of each other’s breath against one another’s lips was comforting, but not enough. So, without another thought, they closed the gap between them.
This kiss was different to the one they shared in the laboratory. The first one was passionate, and happened in the heat of the moment. This one said,
“I want you to stay with me forever.”
A/N: Hope this wasn’t too cringey, I’ve just been hecking bored in self isolation and I’ve been watching Alien again so uh, take this. Also just so you know I literally wrote this at midnight and I’m too lazy to proof read so have this imperfect imagine of our favorite synthetic boy!
