Move to the city with me
I don’t wanna be alone
Don’t wanna be alone
JJ was clingy, anyone could tell you that. He was always touching you in some way whether it be an arm around your waist or hand-holding or fingers trailing down your arms. Especially right now when the two of you were at a party at the Boneyard. He knew that you could take care of your self, but he has seen the way some people behaved once they were drunk or high or both, and he couldn’t help but worry about you.
“JJ, I think that I can walk to the keg by myself,” you said trying to wiggle out of his grasp and get a refill for your beer.
“Girls go to the bathroom with each other for protection so think of this as the same thing. I’m your keg buddy.” JJ said nudging your shoulder with a playful smirk.
“You’re being ridiculous. Do you not trust me to not make-out with some random guy on the way to get some more beer?” your voice was accusatory as you were genuinely confused as to why JJ couldn’t seem to leave you alone when you at a party.
“No, (y/n) that’s not it all. I completely trust you, it’s the other people here that I don’t trust. I mean people like Rafe Cameron are here and he’s fucking crazy. I just don’t want you to get hurt so please let me go with you.” JJ said looking at you with his big blue eyes which were slightly glazed over as if he were on the verge of tears and his lips were downturned in a pout. He looked so cute that you instantly agreed to let him go with you.
“You’re too cute for your own good, do you know that Maybank?” you said leaning up to press a kiss against his lips. His arms tightened around your waist and brought you flush against his body.
“But you love it though,” he said his lips moving against your own which caused your breath to catch in your throat. Before you could respond he crashed his lips back onto yours again in a much more searing kiss which caused your head to spin.
“JJ, what about my beer,” you said pulling back from the kiss slightly breathless, your hands resting against JJ’s chest.
“I’m much better than any damn beer, princess,” he said reconnecting your lips in another kiss.
You’re too pretty for me
Baby, I know, it’s true, yeah
JJ’s clinginess came from more places than his desire to protect you. He believed that you were too good for him and that one day you would figure it out and leave him. But in the meantime, he decided he would shower you in as much love as possible.
“JJ, stop that it tickles.” you laughed as he pressed sloppy kisses all over your face.
“Hmm… let me think, no,” he said as he continued to press kisses all over you from your cheek to your lips to your neck. You tilted your neck to give him better access as he left open-mouthed kisses over the junction between your neck and shoulder.
“You’re so beautiful, ” JJ said against your neck, his tone suddenly introspective. “Why are you even with me?”
“What are you talking about?” you said pulling away from him so that you could look in his eyes.
“You have so much going for you and you could have anyone you’d want so why me. I’m nothing compared to you,” he said and you noticed that tears were welling in his eyes.
“Why would you say that about yourself? You are not nothing JJ. You are the best person I know, and the Pogues, we would literally be nothing without you. You make us laugh when we’re taking things too seriously, and we all know that you would do anything for us. You are the glue of our friend group.” you said and as you became more emotional, your voice began to rise. “So don’t sit there and say that you’re nothing because we need you. I need you.”
He was silent for a moment before he threw himself at you, digging his face into your neck, and wrapping his arms tightly around you as his body shook with sobs. Your heart broke at the sight of the strongest boy you knew falling apart, and you knew at that moment that you would do anything to protect him.
“I love you,” JJ said once he calmed down, and the look in his eyes took your breath away. His eyes were a pale blue, filled with unshed tears, but the intensity they held was beautiful and it lit a fire in the pit of your stomach.
“I love you too,” you said before attaching your lips to his.
Your love is scaring me
No one has ever cared for me
As much as you do
“JJ,” you said, turning around in John B’s hammock so that you could face him.
“What is it, pretty girl?” he said while lacing your fingers together.
“Have you ever thought about our future?”
“What do you mean?” he said, suddenly feeling worried about where the conversation was heading.
“We’re not going to be kids forever, J. One day we’re going to have to grow up and take on responsibilities. I’m scared that I’m not always going to have a place in your life,” you said feeling your eyes well with tears as you imagined a life without JJ.
JJ was speechless as he had genuinely never thought of a life that didn’t include you. Ever since he had met you there was never a moment of his life where he was not with you or thinking of you. That’s when he decided there was never going to be a time where he didn’t need or want you in his life.
“(y/n), you’re always going to be a part of my life. I love you so much that it scares me sometimes. I wouldn’t know what to do without you, I’d go crazy. So as long as you’ll have me, I’m going to be in your life.” JJ said, raising your chin so that you were looking in his eyes. “I’m going to marry you someday.”
“You’re such a sweet talker, ” you said, tears of happiness streaming down your face.
“You love me for it though,”
“Of course, I do,” you said before attaching your lips to his in a tender kiss to which he responded to with equal amounts of tenderness and passion. You wound your fingers into his soft blond hair and gently tugged on the strands. JJ groaned against your lips and strongly gripped your hips.
“Can we get married tomorrow?” he said hoarsely. His pupils were dilated, and the look in his eyes was intense, but the smirk on this face indicated he was joking.
“JJ, no, ” you said laughing before hugging him fiercely, happy that you had found your soulmate and that the both of you had all the time in the world together.
