Oliver- Late Again

Word Count- 568

I’ve been waiting for 30 minutes; where is he?” Y/n thought to themself as they waited in Oliver’s dorm for him. They had a date scheduled for the last two weeks to make sure that it planned super far ahead of time, and he still hadn’t shown up yet. Waiting for him to show up, Y/n laid on his bed, digging their head into the pillow. Y/n let out a loud sigh and continued to wait.

Another 15 minutes passed before Oliver came barrelling into his room,” Sweetheart, I am so so so sorry for being late for another date. I got caught up with quidditch-” “Again,” Y/n interjected. Oliver hung his head,” Yes, again. I swear I’m not trying to put quidditch above you or make it seem like I care less about you than quidditch. I just get too invested and forget to split my attention better,” he paused for a second, taking a step closer to Y/n and grabbing their hands,” Please forgive me. I will try my absolute hardest to make it to the rest of our dates on time.” “I forgive you but, I think I’m just going to go to my dorm. Good night Oliver,” they said, walking out of his room with tears in their eyes.

Oliver didn’t know how to fix this, he was late again, and now Y/n was upset because of him. “Shit,” he muttered under his breath. Oliver ran his hands through his hair and sat on his bed. He then decided to go after themY/n was still walking to their dorm and wiping the tears that had fallen. They were almost at their dorm when Oliver yelled out for them, making them stop and turn towards his voice. They made eye contact, and Y/n turned back and quickly walked into their dorm, Oliver still trying to stop them.

Oliver went up to their door and started knocking,” Y/n, please talk to me. I’m sorry. I screwed up. I swear I wasn’t trying to be late again, please.” “Oliver, you just keep forgetting, and it’s really frustrating. I just want you to actually be on time for once,” they said through the door, still crying a bit. Oliver opened the door out of desperation,” I know, and I am so sorry angel, I swear I will be on time for the next one if that is you want to go on another date with me.” “I do. I just want to be left alone right now.” “I understand, but can I stay here with you. I won’t talk or anything; I just want to be around you,” he said with a begging look in his eyes. Y/n nodded and laid down to go to sleep. Oliver sat at their desk and watched them try to fall asleep.

It had been another 30 or so minutes, and Y/n still hadn’t been able to fall asleep, so she asked,” Ollie, can you come and cuddle with me?” “Of course, angel,” he said as he got up. He climbed into the bed and wrapped his arms around them, pressing soft kisses into their hair. “I’m sorry again; it won’t happen again.” “Promise Ollie.” “I promise, good night.” “Good night. I love you.” “I love you too, angel.” With those words, they fell asleep, and their problems had been, sleepily, resolved.
