It was a warm summer evening in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana. The sun was setting, casting a golden glow over the quiet neighborhood as you made your way down the street on your bike. You were on your way to Mike Wheeler's house, anxious to see him after spending the whole day apart. Mike was your best friend and secret crush. You had known each other since you were kids, and over the years, your feelings for him had only grown stronger. You had never mustered up the courage to tell him how you felt, but you hoped that maybe, just maybe, he felt the same way about you. As you approached Mike's house, you saw him sitting on the front porch, his curly brown hair catching the last rays of sunlight. He looked up as you pulled up to the curb, a bright smile spreading across his face. "Hey, Y/N," he called out, waving you over. "I was hoping you'd come by tonight." You couldn't help but blush at his words, your heart fluttering at the sight of him. You locked up your bike and walked over to him, taking a seat next to him on the porch swing. "I missed you today," you admitted, unable to hide your feelings any longer. "I missed you too," Mike replied, his voice soft and sincere. "I always do when you're not around." You felt a surge of hope at his words, but before you could respond, the sound of footsteps interrupted your moment. You turned to see Mike's friends, Lucas, Dustin, and Eleven, approaching the porch. "Hey, guys!" Mike greeted them, his attention momentarily diverted. "What are you doing here?" "We were just in the neighborhood and thought we'd stop by," Lucas explained, glancing over at you with a knowing look. You felt a pang of disappointment as the group settled in on the porch, taking the attention away from your moment with Mike. You tried to push your feelings aside and focus on enjoying the evening with your friends, but it was hard when all you wanted was to be alone with him. As the night wore on, you watched as Lucas and Dustin teased Mike about his crush on Eleven, the girl with telekinetic powers who had become a part of their group. Mike blushed furiously, denying the accusations, but you could see the truth in his eyes. You felt a swell of jealousy rise in your chest, knowing that Eleven had captured Mike's attention in a way you never could. You tried to push the feeling aside, telling yourself that you were just being silly, but it was hard when all you wanted was to be the one he looked at with such adoration. Finally, as the night grew late and the others began to head home, you found yourself alone with Mike on the porch. The air was filled with a tense silence, neither of you knowing what to say. "I should probably go too," you said, standing up from the swing. "Wait," Mike said, grabbing your arm to stop you. "There's something I need to tell you." Your heart raced in your chest as you turned to face him, his gaze intense as he looked into your eyes. "I know we've been friends for a long time, but I can't deny how I feel about you," he confessed, his voice filled with emotion. "I've been trying to hide it, but I can't anymore. I love you, Y/N." Tears pricked at your eyes as you listened to his words, your heart soaring with happiness. "I love you too, Mike," you whispered, unable to hold back your own feelings any longer. In an instant, everything changed between you. Mike pulled you into his arms, holding you close as you leaned into his embrace. You felt a rush of warmth and contentment wash over you, knowing that you were exactly where you belonged. And in that moment, as you held each other under the starlit sky, you knew that your love for Mike Wheeler was all you'd ever need.
