She's a Wallflower
The first time Chad Dylan Cooper had laid eyes on Sonny Munroe, he was hooked. He was on set, running lines with his co-star for the latest episode of Mackenzie Falls. Natalie, who played Mackenzie's newest love interest Beca, was a sweetheart...on screen. But as soon as the directors called cut, her attitude changed for the worse. She slapped the actor on his stomach then stormed off, leaving a confused Chad alone on set.
He heard some giggles from across the hall and turned his head, a smile creeping up his face as he saw a light-haired brunette laughing her face off. Chad supped that the bratty girl must have amused her to a great amount, as he heard a snort-laugh come out of her mouth.
The actor chuckled in return, a small smile on his face as he walked over to her. The brunette was still laughing, which only made him smile wider.
"Hey." The star greeted, sticking out his hand for a shake.
"Um…" The girl responded, jumping in surprise, "Wha...what's happening right now? Wait, are you talking to me?"
"Of course, I am." Chad responded, winking at the brunette, "Who else would I be talking to?" He moved his hand closer to her, "I'm Chad Dylan Cooper, but you knew that."
The brunette cleared her throat and turned down the shake, "I'm Sonny Munroe, but I knew that." She teased, laughing at her own joke. The actor forced a laugh before sitting back into his own chair, beckoning the girl forward. She complied, standing awkwardly beside the Vanity mirror that he sat in front of.
"So…" The blonde actor began, "...Are you new, Sonny?"
"To what?" She asked, twiddling her thumbs.
Chad smiled, "To Condor Studios. Do you work here, Munroe?" He pressed, crossing his leg.
Sonny cleared her throat and shook her head, "Um, n-no. I'm just here visiting a friend. I come to the studios a lot, I just usually don't come over here." She explained.
"Why not? Mackenzie Falls is like the show where everyone wants to hang out." He said, completely serious, "Why wouldn't you want to spend some time over at the Falls?"
"I don't know." Sonny shrugged, "Guess I'm not all that into your show." She confessed, "Plus, it's not like anyone would notice me hanging around anyway. I'm the hugest wallflower, nobody notices me."
Chad was both hurt and understanding at the same time. He shrugged and reached his arm out to touch Sonny, who instantly backed away. The actor ignored this action and moved forward, "I noticed you though, Munroe."
"I know you did, Chad." The girl smiled and walked away, leaving the actor to his own thoughts, who in their right mind wouldn't notice a girl like that?
As the days went on, the actor found himself looking for the girl everywhere he went. It was hard to focus on his work because his thoughts were always filled with images of her beautiful face. He had a feeling, though, that it would be even more difficult to concentrate if Sonny was here.
And he was exactly right.
The actor was about to wrap up his last scene for the day when he looked to his side and saw the brunette standing there, a bright smile on her face as she watched him work. She waved 'hello' and rubbed her right arm.
As Natalie was speaking her last line, Chad pushed past her and made his way over to the brunette, a bright smile on both of their faces.
"Hey." The actor greeted, "What're you doing here?"
"What're you doing here?" Sonny asked in return, "Aren't you supposed to be filming right now?"
He shrugged, "Probably."
The brunette chuckled in return, "Well I gotta go." She said sadly, "It was good seeing you." The girl turned around and began to walk off, Chad doing his best stop her. He reached out for her arm but she took it away before they could make contact.
"Come on, Munroe." He began, "Just hang around for a bit."
"Oh, just come on." He begged, "You seem like a pretty annoying girl."
"Wow." The brunette responded.
"What? I said pretty!"
Sonny just cackled a bit longer until she was out of air. The girl finally rolled her eyes, "I can't." She repeated, "Not today, at least."
"Maybe." She teased.
"Oh, c'mon Munroe." Chad pushed, crossing his arms.
"Yes," She answered, "I'll be here."
"Good." The actor responded.
"Good." Sonny responded.
The brunette walked away before the actor could say anything more. He chuckled under his breath and turned around to walk away, jumping in surprise when he saw three members of his leading cast standing in front of him.
"Oh, hey guys." He greeted awkwardly, "Whatd'ya say we head back to set? Shoot that last scene?"
"Who were you just talking to?" Penelope asked, her voice very harsh.
"Wha-What are you talking about? I was just talking to Sonny." He explained.
"The girl that was just standing in front of me? Pretty brown hair, big brown eyes?" He described, frustrated when he got nothing from the cast. He huffed and pushed through the small crowd, taking his spot back on stage.
But as he straightened his jacket, he saw something out of the corner of his eye.
She waved at him quickly and gave him a thumbs up before disappearing around the corner.
A smile crept up his face before he turned back around and gave the same smile to Natalie, who played Beca. The red-head smiled right back and laid her body against "Mackenzie's" chest, "I just wish it didn't have to be this way…"
"I know." He soothed, "I know."
A/N: The first chapter sucks I am so sorry to let you down, guys. I know how the whole story is going to play out, everything is in my brain. I just...the first chapter turned out bad. I feel like their meeting was a bit rushed? I don't know, honestly. It'll get better, I promise. Just stick with me for now and I'd appreciate any reviews, favorites, or follows you could throw at me. I'm crossing my fingers in hopes that this will turn out well! Thank you very much for your support.
