When Toby and Adele go on their first official “date”, things take a turn for the worse…
Note: There’s a bit of swearing and protective Toby in here. Hope you like!
What. Just… what. What the fuck just happened!? Adele thought, focusing on every little feature of Toby’s face as he pulled away from their first kiss. She was confused but… happy. Extremely happy. Toby slowly open his eyes and gazed into hers. She smiled, and started to giggle, unbelieving that everything that just happened, happened. Aaaand then she realized…
“So, uh… what happens now?”
“I don’t know.” He said through an awkward laugh.
“I’ll… just, uh, be going. I- I should start animating if we want this done by Friday.” She corrected, hoping she hadn’t offended Toby.
“Wait…” He stopped her, grabbing her wrist. “So, I’m doing a meet-up this weekend-”
“I know. I’m a fan of yours, remember?” She giggled.
“Right. And it’s fine if you don’t want to go, since you’re working on the doodle and stuff… but, maybe you’d like to come with me… and be in a vlog?” Her biggest dream of her and Toby (besides them being together of course), was going to come true this weekend.
“Uh- uh- uh- uh sure!” She answered, trying (and failing) to keep down her fangirl squeals. Toby smiled and said goodbye as Adele left, only to squeal and giggle uncontrollably as soon as she got to her car.
The rest of the week went unbearably slow as she waited for the upcoming weekend, but luckily she had PLENTY of animating to keep her busy. But finally, finally, FINALLY it was here. Their first date? What do you classify going out with an amazing youtuber who’s like a hero to you that you’ve kissed and shipped yourself with but you’re not really dating or are you?
A few hours later, you’re walking around where the meet-up is planned to be, looking for Toby.
“He was supposed to be here 15 minutes ago… where is he?” You mutter. You were supposed to meet up first, then he’d bring you to wherever he’d be talking to everyone else.
Wow… to think just a few weeks ago I was just “everyone else”… She thought.
“Hey.” Someone whispered in your ear, alarming you. You flinch and turn to see Toby, and hear everyone else noticing him too. Screams of fans turn into a mob heading towards both of you.
“Oh shit…” Toby mumbled. You hadn’t heard him swear like that since the early years of his channel.
“What do we do?” She asked, trying to keep her calm.
“We run like hell!” He screamed, grabbing her wrist while she was being pushed away. They had lost each other, and now she was just a part of “everyone else”.
Toby got up onto the stage, looking worried when she wasn’t up there.
“To any Doodlens out there, do you see Adele out there? She’s… kinda supposed to be up here with me.”
Just then, someore grabbed Adele’s hand roughly, and started pulling away.
“The stage is the other way, you know.” Adele told the stranger.
“I know.” They replied.
“Where are you taking me then?” She had already started pulling away from the man.
“Right about…” He stepped into the nearby alley, pulling her with him. He was strong, and that was going to be a problem. “Here. Now, I wanted to talk to you about something. Well, we did.” He motioned to the little girl in the shadows of the alley, and she stepped out, and gave Adele a hug.
“I really like your videos.” She smiled and hugged her tighter.
“Honey, why don’t you go back to the meet-up? Get Mommy and take her with you.”
“Okay daddy!” She grinned and ran off, leaving her alone with the stranger.
“Now, I want to talk to you.”
“Why couldn’t we chat at the meet-up?”
“Because I couldn’t do this.” Suddenly, he punched her in the jaw, knocking her down.
“Ah, son of a bitch…” Adele mumbled. She got kicked in the stomach next, and he pulled her up just to punch her in the nose.
“That’s enough!” A woman yelled. Yes! I’m saved! Adele thought, holding her possibly broken nose.
“So you’re Adele. Toby’s girl.” She hissed.
“Um, I don’t know about that, but-” The woman turned out to be strong as well, pulling her up by the collar of her shirt.
“He’s mine, got it? I’ve worked to damn long just to have some British bitch mess it up. Stay away from Toby. Or else this is going to happen again.” She dropped her to the ground, only to leap at her and start to strangle her. The guy just stood with his bulging, wondering if he was going to see someone be killed…
As she started losing consciousness, she felt the strong grip release her. She gasped, and saw Toby standing next to her.
“Toby! I was just walking to the meet-up and I saw that this guy was beating Adele, and I didn’t know what to do! I obviously couldn’t take this big guy on-”
“Cut the bullshit. I don’t want-” Suddenly, everything was dark.
“Don’t you ever touch my girlfriend again.” He growled as she regain consciousness. The pair ran off, and Toby crouched next to her.
“Adele, are you okay? I’m so sorry… I just… God dammit…” He trailed off.
“Seriously? Just look at me, do you think I’m alright?” She looked down at her blood stained shirt (hopefully it was from her bleeding nose), and started to laugh.
“Why are you laughing?”
“This has been a great first date, huh?” Toby giggled. Then, it slowly dawned on her that she was just beaten in an alley, and someone was willing to do it again. She almost died. Soon, Toby was holding her in his arms, carrying her to the remainder of the meet-up.
“Everything’s ok… Shhh…. I’m here.” He whispered to her, occasionally kissing her forehead. After cleaning her up, he carried her to the stage and started to vlog.
“Audience what? What are you doing looking at DoodlesbyAdzie!?” The audience cheered, and she smiled. Maybe this day hadn’t been so bad after all…
