Monopoly - Dan Howell
It was around 7 in the afternoon, the sky was already dark. She and Dan were sitting in the couch, having a small chat. “How’s life?” Dan asked her and looked at her, giving her his full attention. It had been months since she has seen Dan, and to be honest, she did miss him.
She just shrugged, her life had been shit lately. “Do you have monopoly?” she suddenly asked. “Yeah, why? Do you want to play?” Dan smiled at her and raised an eyebrow. “I’d love to! It’s my favorite game,” her smile was growing every second. “Do you have red wine?” she questioned, getting the game ready for use. “I think so, I’ll go and check, love,” Dan replied with his nice smile, she felt her cheek go hot, but she shook the feeling off her. He came back with a large wine bottle in his hands and two glasses in the other. “I don’t know if you like this wine, I usually have your favorite. But Phil must have bought this last week.” Dan told her and laughed a quick laugh.
She shook her head as she laughed. God, he loves her laughter, it’s soft and it sounds like a calm note. “Are you ready to play? I’m gonna beat your ass, Howell!” she giggled, and once again, that perfect note laugh. “Sure, good luck.” he replied and sat down, ready to play.
After about an hour or so she had drunk a bit, she wasn’t drunk, so she was all giggly and tired. “I-I love this game.” she said and placed her hand on Dan’s, not noticing what she just did. His cheek went red and warm, just like hers did earlier. She looked up at him and gave him a small smile. “I win.” she said softly, Dan didn’t care that he just lost, he just looked her in the eyes and smiled. “I win,” she repeated, now smirking at him. “W-what?” he asked after a few seconds finally realizing what just happened.
A small sigh came out her mouth, and another giggle. “I win, Dan.” Dan looked at the board game and laughed. “Congrats, you did actually beat my ass.” he said, the smile was still on his lips. “Beat is my nickname.” she whispered and leant forward, Dan’s heart beated faster and his breath hitched.
“I’m falling for you, Daniel.
