All of Me

Hey there Maksyl fam! This is just a little drabble I wrote about the rehearsal for Meryl and Maks’s Week 3 Foxtrot. I hope you enjoy it!

“We need to do something memorable as the chorus hits the first time,” Maks said as he paced, “something really special.”

Meryl looked up at him, watching him pace as she leaned against the wall. “We could do that death spiral thing we had started working on- the one where you spin me around on the ground,” she suggested, trying to help him.

He shook his head. “I want that to go at the end.” Maks sighed softly, frustrated at the creative blockage he was feeling. He started the music over, and “All of Me” filled the room as he walked back towards Meryl, leaning against the wall beside her. He turned so that the wall touched his shoulder and he looked at her, his mind at work.

She turned so that she was looking back at him, their bodies only inches apart, just as the chorus began. “Cause all of me loves all of you…”

All of a sudden something clicked for Maks as he gazed down at her. “I think I’ve got it.”

“Okay, what are we going to do?” Meryl asked curiously.

“We’re just gonna stand there,” Maks replied, proud for thinking of what he considered a great idea.

Meryl didn’t seem to understand though. “You mean like we’re doing right now?”  

“Kind of,” Maks answered, a smile on his face, “but we’re going to be closer.”

“So like this?” Meryl asked as she took a step closer to him, peeking up at him through her thick eyelashes flirtatiously.

Maks let out a soft chuckle as he met her gaze before he continued the flirtation, shaking his head softly, his husky voice barely above a whisper, “Closer.”

She bit her lip as she moved forward until their bodies were no more than an inch apart. “Better?”

Maks moved his hands to her waist, his fingers pressing against the small of her back, and he brought her towards him so that his body was pressed against hers. “Now it is,” he replied, his warm breath sending chills up her spine as it hit her skin. “Now put your hands around my neck,” he instructed as he looked down at her, smirking softly as he spoke again, “like you’re going to kiss me.”

“What?” Meryl asked after a moment. She had to have heard him wrong.

“You heard me,” he responded. “Act like you’re going to kiss me.”

Meryl took a deep breath before moving her hands to his neck, going up onto the tips of her toes to reach him as she drew his face closer to hers. “Like this?” she asked again, whispering.

“Just like this,” Maks replied softly, Meryl’s eyes drawn to his lips as he spoke. They had been flirting with each other since day one and had grown accustomed to touching and being close. But this was different, and they could feel it.

Before he really knew what he was doing, Maks began to tilt his head, thinking only of bringing himself as close as he possibly could to her and immediately Meryl followed, her eyes closing as they moved closer.

At the last moment, just as their lips were about to touch, Meryl’s phone rang, breaking the silence. Their eyes opened and Maks pulled back, clearing his throat, as Meryl dropped her arms.

“Sorry, I should…” Meryl trailed off, her eyes still glued to his, as he released his grip on her.

“Yeah go ahead,” he replied with a nod.

Meryl scurried over to her bag, grabbing her phone out of it. But before she answered, she turned back around to look at him. “Hey, Maks?”

He looked over at her as he ran a hand through his hair. “Yeah?” Perhaps he had overstepped his boundaries. After all, who knew what would have happened if they hadn’t have been interrupted.

She bit her lip, a smile pulling at the corner of her lips. “Wanna go out to dinner with me tonight?”

At this a smile spread across his face. Nodding, he replied, “Of course. I’ll pick you up at 8.”

“It’s a date then,” Meryl said, the flirtatious tone returning to her voice, before she turned away answering the phone.

Maks leaned back against the wall, looking at her, and laughed softly to himself. “It’s a date,” he mumbled, his smile growing wider. 

Thanks for reading, and feel free to send me prompts or suggestions for what you’d like to see me write next!

I am not in the tag...or am I? Here have it anyway 😏

“Thank you for the facetime Z.”

“Anytime Val.”

“Are you up for lunch? I am free actually.”

“Sure! Fratelli?”

“Like always.”

“I will see you there shortly.”

Val said goodbye to the dwts fam and made his way to the cafe.

He said hi to his friends and waited for Zendaya to arrive.

He didn’t have to wait long until he was greeted by her huge smile.


She said cheerfully.

Val stood up and hugged her.

“God I am so glad you called I was starving.”

He chuckled. “You want the usual?”

“You know it and fries! Double.”

She grinned.

Val nodded and went to make an order to his friend.

When he came back to the table he knew there was something going on through Zendaya’s head.

Before he had chance to ask her she already started talking.

“So I’ve been thinking.”

“Uh-hu that’s never a good thing.”

Val joked and Zendaya showed him her tongue.

“Anyway as I was saying. Tonight Deja is performing at this club and I was wondering if…if you would like to go with me.”

She looked at him while lightly biting her lip.

“With you?”

“Yeah. Picking me up and all that stuff.”

She wasn’t asking the actual question but Val could hear it.

“You could check my crib later or we would go grab something to eat.”

“You know that sounds awfully like a date.”

“I know. I…you know Dom might come later as well and I want to support my sister.”


“And I want to spend that night with you.”

A little smirk appeared on Val’s face.

“Not night as night as whole night I mean not that I would mind…I mean.”

“Z, why are you so nervous?”

“I dont know.”

“I will pick you up we will enjoy the show then we will hang out with girls and later you will show me your place. Does that sound good?”


“And we dont have to call it a date, we dont have to put any label. We want to see each other and we will.”


“But for the future let me ask you on a date first.” He winked at her.

Zendaya blushed.

Date or not they are going to spend time together and thats all that mattered
