tom x reader
My heart stopped as I waited outside right next to Tom just standing until the anticipation was over and Tom’s little brother opened the door in shock to see me standing there.
h-oh my god! This is y/n?
t-yeah! She is a little nervous so don’t-
And just then Harry leaped forwards and lunged onto me squeezing me really tight
Tom’s face went emotionless and finished his sentence from before
t-make her feel pressure...
t-nothing the time passed
y-I..uh....HII! I’m y/n and It’s so great to finally meet you
Harry lay off me a bit putting his hands on my shoulders scanning my face and showing an amused face as he looked directly at Tom
h-she is really pretty!! Damn Tom
I then turned to face Tom with a curious look on my face
I think he panicked because he stuttered in response
t-oh uh...please...don’t mind h-him...that’s h-harry for you
He then let out an awkward yet uncomfortable laugh
y-so you don’t think I’m pretty?
I then smiled at him
t-WhAt? NO, NO that’s not what I meant!!
y-I’m kidding Holland, don’t take it seriously
he replied while rubbing the back of his neck with his hand
s-oh my soul! Tom you’re back!! And you brought company!
t-yeah Sam this is y/n!
s-woah! Even better in person
Sam also then embraced me with a warming hug
We eventually got inside and Tom helped me place my bags down just for now
I waited downstairs in the lounge with the boys ready to greet Nikki and Dom I was so scared but I knew they were lovely people
The three of us chatted for a bit before we all heard Nikki excitedly exclaim Tom’s name!
n-Darling! You’re finally home, I missed you love, how was your trip?
t-hey mum! It was great, I did bring someone along!!
n-omg yes y/n right? Where is she?
Just then Nikki caught my eye and of course I awkwardly waved at her and smiled
n-aww come here love!
Nikki out of all gave me the biggest welcome as Dom came in the room as well!
d-it is so lovely to finally meet you! Tom has told us so much about you!
d-oh yes! He always talks about you and how you are so-
t-ALRIGHT! THANKS DAD...what do you say we go make some tea?
y-yeah sounds good!
He dragged me out of the lounge and into the kitchen as Harry and Sam followed
I boiled the kettle while the three of them got the mugs, teabags and essentials for making tea
I placed the mugs on the table and made my way over to Tom who was looking in the cabinet for the sugar. I lay my back against the counter and leaned my arms behind my back for support. I was shorter then Tom being 5′5 I looked up at him and he smiled down at me.
y-nothing! I was just wondering who made the better tea?
He then went wide eyed knowing I may have started a battle, Tom stayed silent not knowing what to say....the only thing he whispered was ‘crap’
h-well for starters it definitely isn’t Tom
s-hey buddy you’re not much better yourself
h-excuse me I might be better then you actually
s-I don’t think so mate!
t-guys please calm down...
h-SHUT IT MILKY TEA
s-damn harry....WAIT!...why doesn’t y/n judge??
h-we’ve done this so many times mate is it necessary again?
y-listen people...first off I don’t think I feel like judging, secondly I guarantee I can make better tea then all three of you boys
h-I like her
s-yeah me too! Friendly competition for another day hey...
y-friendly?? Oh no....you got me all wrong if it’s tea we competing against I go very hard mode
h-well then....let the games begin y/n and may the best tea maker win!
y-better watch your back that’s all I’m saying
t-y/n are you sure about that?
s-yeah listen to him!
y-no I’ll stick with the competition. And we can get your parents to judge and they won’t know whose teas are whose
h-sounds good to me!
We then made our way upstairs to his room so I could kind of see how he grew up and oh my word. Was it not a Spider-Man mess but at the same time the cutest thing ever!
y-aww man! You truly weren’t joking but this is very cute!
I then plopped myself on his bed laying down letting out a deep sigh. Tom sat himself next to me laying down to get to my face level. I smiled and hid my face with a pillow
y-so uh have you thought about Paris fashion week at all?
t-oh uh not particularly, I thought we could discuss it during dinner just to give me time to think about it
y-oh yeah no rush you still got loads of time!
I then rolled off the bed back onto my feet, I looked in the mirror just to fix my hair and neaten out my outfit before going back downstairs
y-one last question...where do I sleep?
t-oh yeah right! You’ll be sleeping in one of the twins room if that is okay?
y-I’m not picky! Sounds perfect
t-great follow me then this way
Tom took me to one of the rooms and left me alone to have a few minutes to myself. I started to unpack my clothes and started hanging them and packing them in the cupboards. When I finally finished unpacking I took out my laptop and set it up on the lovely long desk Harry had in his room along with a few note books that I set up to continue with my writing.
I updated my Instagram story by posting a quick mirror pick with a London location in the photo. As soon as I was ready I headed back downstairs to see everyone Around the table. I made my way down and saw them setting the table in time because they were about to make dinner
y-hey can I please help with something?
n-we just finished setting up...can you cook?
y-me? of course! I can make some mean Greek dishes as that is my nationality
n-oh great! maybe you could cook us something tomorrow night? Sam wanted to make you our favorite dish we have as a family especially on special occasions as so today
y-aww no of course! Can I at least make a salad?
n-that would be perfect thank you love
I made my way into the kitchen setting up my little station where I would work with a cutting board, knife, bowl, seasoning and of course the ingredients. I washed the lettuce, cut it and put it into the bowl same for the tomatoes, cucumber, spring onions and sprinkled feta on top! I then made the dressing to go on top with olive oil, oregano, lemon juice, salt and pepper and added it in a little container to add to the top if wanted. As I was making my dressing Tom came to check up on the chef and me
t-it smells delicious Sam as always
y-it truly does! Thank you for taking the time to make it it looks amazing
s-no problem I’m in my element
t-and how goes the Greek cuisine?
I laughed as I corrected him
y-well it isn’t a Greek salad it has lettuce, Greek salads don’t
t-oh well it looks great!
y-wanna taste my dressing?
t-sure why not
I then offered him a little spoon of it as he tasted it and seemed to enjoy it
-that’s actually quite refreshing it isn’t to heavy
y-exactly, anyways I’m going to take this to the table then come clean up!
I took the salad bowl and placed it on to the table along with the dressing to go along with it, I went back into the kitchen and cleaned up my work space and washed everything straight away. I had made Sam a little plate and left it in the kitchen because the family had already started dishing out salad as a started I’d assumed.
y-here you go! Just a little something while the others eat it to and uh I also left some dressing so you can try it before you add it
s-aww thanks y/n that’s really sweet of you!
I gave him a smile and made my way to sit with the others
Dom sat at the head next to Nikki and Paddy next to Nikki the same side opposite them sat Tom and then me with Harry at the other head of the table. They all plated some salad and seemed to enjoy it because after a few minutes it was gone
d-that really was great y/n thank you so much!
y-of course it s the least i can do for you guys. After all you are letting me stay here a few days until I settle in my place
n-right we did hear about it from Tom
y-yeah when my parents passed they left me the house I just haven’t been yet so Tom offered me to stay here while we start a new journey I guess
h-aww that is so sweet
y-it truly is!
t-yeah I was thinking tomorrow we could go past and starting opening it up, spend the next two days working on it?
y-don’t you have things to do I mean I can go and start while you spend time with your family
t-no it’s okay
y- I insist you haven’t been with them for long! I’ll start tomorrow then you can join me the next day
s-DINNER IS READY FAM!
We heard Sam yell from the kitchen as Paddy had a little laugh. We made our way there and dished up some food it was Holland’s shepherd's pie, his moms recipe and it was Tom’s absolute favorite
t-aww mate I am so happy you made it!
p-y/n you have to try it
y-of course I will it looks amazing!
t-it is my favorite food ever! My mum makes the best pies
I laughed as he got really excited explaining how much he enjoyed this recipe
y-ok ok Holland I’m trying it
He wasn’t wrong my expressions showed it all. The pie was absolutely amazing
y-wow this is flipping amazing!
t-right I knew you’d love it!
y-oh have you decided if your going to Paris fashion week?
t-I’ll go on one condition?
y-hey I don’t want to force this on you
t-no you’re not but I’ll only go if you are my plus one
y-WhAt? nO. What about your mom or Sam or Harrison or..
t-but I want you plus my family have been to so many events and my friends are busy
y- I feel so honored I’m in shock, I’m literally shaking Tom! THANK YOU!!
I could contain myself I've dreamed of being on those carpets to be noticed for my roles and books!. I hugged him so tight and when I let go I forgot we had everyone else with us
y-I’m so sorry!
n-no need to be!
Dinner went on for another hour or so just getting to know more about them after a while I had said I would clear the table and help Tom wash the dishes
t-thank you for making them laugh today and just being yourself
y-of course! Thanks for so much I can’t tell you how grateful I am that you’ve done so much for me
We finished off with the dishes around 9pm. I grabbed myself a glass of water before making my way upstairs now outside Harry’s bedroom. I turned around to see Tom
t-so uh tomorrow I’ll come past we can start working on it
y-yeah but you do what you need to first before me! I am not the priority ok first sort yourself out! promise?
I reached up for a hug and gave him a quick hug before closing the door and into the bathroom to brush my teeth and take out my hair before landing straight on to the bed and falling asleep
