Hi babes! Currently obsessed w your writing! I wanted to make a Bradley x reader imagine where the reader is new in town and starts working w penny at the bar, and the reader is super shy and innocent and then she meets Bradley since him and the pilots frequently go there. The problem is that Bradley has a girlfriend and the reader notices ( she can also be a made up character who’s also a pilot for the sake of the imagine) but she gets sent to a mission or to another city and Bradley takes advantage of the vulnerability of the situation to get closer to the reader and have a summer fling w her, yet once the girlfriend is back he goes back to her like nothing and leaves the reader heartbroken. This is literally based on the Taylor swift love triangle; august James and Betty! And how the reader is august and her pov reflects how she lost someone that she never had. I love this imagine so much it’s my first time requesting a rooster imagine 🥺 I absolutely love Taylor and august is my birth month and my birthday is approaching it would mean the world to me if you could make this happen 😌😌💕
NO BC FOLKLORE IS LITERALLY MY FAV ALBUM EVER AND I COULD WRITE A DAMN ESSAY ON BETTY, JAMES, AND AUGUSTINE
word count: 837
warnings; cheating, implies sex but nothing explicit, literally rooster being a bit of an asshat
“Hey,” was the start of this all. This whole debacle started because he said hey. You should have known; you saw her.
It did start innocently enough, he was a regular and you worked there. A new job and a new town. Penny was courteous enough to help you at the bar, but he always waited to order for the rare moments when she was busy, or running to grab more rum.
“Hey sugar, two more beers please.”
“Coming right up,”
You didn’t need anything more than that. Sure, you wanted it, but his arm was always around her. All the pilots are sitting at the pool table, and for the whole month you’ve worked at the Hard Deck, they’ve been there every saturday. Without fail.
You’re racing around, but every time you stop and breathe in the moment, your eyes are drawn towards him.
August 1st. That was the day he showed up, alone. No other pilots in sight. She wasn’t there.
“Hey,” He says.
“Rooster, what can I get for ya?” You sound excited to see him, even though you’re almost certain that he’ll ask for a beer.
“Your number?” You’re shocked. He’s laying it on thick, for the first time that he’s appeared without her anyways. “Order a round and I’ll tell you,” You say, a little shocked at your forwardness. “I’ll take a beer, then.”
Sure enough, your number is lying at the bottom of his receipt.
You’d be lying if you had said that you weren’t excited for him to call. When he finally did, you cancelled all your plans. That friend you had made? Hanging out with her didn’t matter right now.
Soon enough though, it wasn’t just canceling when he called. It was in advance. Everyone got a “Sorry, I can't do anything. I have work stuff.” or sometimes a “Can’t. Families in town.”
It was worth it, right?
August 10th. You’ve met up with him a few times, and you’re falling hard. He’s perfect, but if you had thought longer you would have found his fatal flaw.
“Hi baby,” He said over the phone. You’re sitting at your apartment counter.
“You wanna do somethin’ tonight?”
“I’ll pick you up behind the mall?”
“Sounds good, Roo.”
He pulls up in that stupidly charming Bronco, and you hop in without a second thought. You wake up next to him, again.
August 14th. He’s being weird. He’ll call you, and talk to you at the bar, but ushers you away from his friends. Like he’s ashamed. You should have pieced it together, you think. From what you knew, his ‘ex’ (who you’ve never really talked about) is also a pilot. Now, however, you know that she was on the other side of the country.
To put his odd behavior out of your mind, you switch sides with Penny. You’re facing away from the pool table because, out of sight, out of mind. You wish it were that easy now.
“Hi, hun.” He greets you when you step out of the bar. Your coworker agreed to take your shift a little earlier than required, and you’re going to take advantage of it.
“My place or yours?”
August 16th. Doubts are settling into your mind. The weird behavior doesn’t change. You haven’t even really met his friends, and everything you know is from him telling you, or you watching from behind the bar. He keeps shoving you away when he’s near them, and it’s weird.
“Rooster, why haven’t I met your friends?”
He looks like a deer in headlights. You’re lying next to him in bed, cuddled up. “I didn’t know you’d want to meet them?” He chokes out, and you nod, accepting his answer.
If you’d pushed a little harder, maybe it wouldn’t have hurt so much.
August 20th. This time, it was you initiating something. “Get in the car!” You had said, somewhat jokingly, but he did. So, you drove to the beach. The air was salty, and so was the water sliding between your toes, but you couldn’t have asked for anything better. Running across the beach with Rooster. You never needed anything more, just being with him was enough.
August 23rd. He’s dancing with you in your kitchen, pancakes on the stove inevitably burning. It’s the first night he’s slept over, and he tried to surprise you.
“Flip the pancakes!” You laugh when the charred smell finally reaches you. He’s swatting smoke away and you’re opening windows, trying to guide the smoke out. You’re almost choking when he comes over to kiss you.
August 28th. It’s the last real day of it all. He drives to your house to pick you up, and you go to the movie theater. He smiles at you, but it doesn’t feel right. It didn’t feel right. It wasn’t right.
August 31st. He walks into the Hard Deck, 8:15 P.M, and your day instantly brightens. “Two beers, please.” He says to Penny.
His arm is back to being around her.
It was all a lie.

♊️Avgust 20th -Mars (the planet of drive and ambition) will be entering Gemini. There will be much more happening, the energy will be playful, not planned, and there will be much more communication. Things are about to get more interesting. Gemini is a changeable but flirtatious and mostly light-hearted zodiac sign. When this fiery planet transits Gemini, our urge to communicate can come across quite abruptly. There’s not a lot of tact here and we definitely tend to speak out of turn during Mars in Gemini. This is an extra long Mars transit as it will turn retrograde in Gemini on October 30th, 2022 until January 12th, 2023.
♍️Avgust 22nd Sun enters Virgo arrives—and with it, a growing need to find a mind, body, and spirit connection. As a practical earth sign, Virgo is all about fine-tuning our routines so we can find balance and get our lives working as best as possible. August 24th: Uranus Retrograde-Inner freedom.
🌑New moon is in Virgo on Saturday, August 27, which means it is time to start thinking about what new rutine and things you would like in your life. Also start to thinking about eating, planting, harvesting — or maybe it means you should start making goals for organizing and decluttering your space. It is the ideal time to begin new and better life habits.
