You surprise Daryl at one of his panels at Comic Con
I wore sunglasses and a hat in hopes of no fans recognizing me and making me more obvious to Norman. I slid into the panel and took a seat near the back. The room started to fill up, it didn’t take long as it was pretty small. The mic to ask questions was in the aisle so we’d have to line up to ask a question.
They introduced the cast that would be present at tonight’s panel. Lauren, Danai, Chandler, Tom (Payne), Andrew, Jeffrey and then Norman. The crowd roared to see him, especially me. I teared up seeing him, I hadn’t seen him in a while. I wanted to just text him and tell him i was here, but I wouldn’t ruin the surprise so soon.
The time has come to ask questions, I shot up straight away. A few fans beat me considering they were closer to the stage than I was. I was somewhat in the middle, hat and glasses still on. I got so nervous and excited, I didn’t even know what to ask my own fiance. The mic was finally to me. The room fell silent, all the familiar cast mates and Chris Hardwick stared at me, waiting for my question. I’m sure Norman knew my voice by heart so I altered it a bit.
“My question is for Norman” I start and a smile rose on his face “Do you have a girlfriend at the moment?” I felt myself blush but also get nervous.
What is he said no?
“Yeah, actually I have a fiance, she’s great and funny and gorgeous, I miss her so much” Norman started rambling “I love her so much”
“I love you too, Norm” I say taking off my hat and sunglasses.
“Shit,” he says turning from the mic, his face bright red, the crowd ‘awwed’ in unison “I love you” he says to the mic.
“Can we get her a chair up here? Can I bring her up here? I don’t care, I’m doing it” He says leaving the stage.
I ran up on stage to meet him for a hug while some crew got me a chair. I heard him sniffle and knew he was crying.
“I love you so much, so much, babe. You don’t even know” He whispered.
“I love you more” I say holding his face with both hands and just really taking a look at you “I missed your face” I said and kissed him.
They got a chair and Norman laid it next to his for me and I sat next to him.
“Damn, she really got me” Norman said into the mic with a small chuckle.
“I know I won’t be sleeping tonight” Andy says jokingly “I’ll be busy calling in noise complaints” he laughed.
“Fuck you” Norman said, his face once again glowing up red.
