Alex led the team inside the rusted warehouse. It was dingier and more dilapidated than most hideouts their Fort Rozz escapees and other villains tended to pick. Agents flanked her on either side, guns drawn, search lights fixed to their tactical vests. Kara followed behind her, ready to throw herself in front of the group at a moment’s notice.
The smell of rotting flesh got more powerful as they proceeded. It was so pungent it made Alex gag. She stifled a cough against her arm, pausing briefly before signaling for them to keep going, adjusting the brace on her hand so she could grip her weapon more firmly. As they got closer, it became clear that this was a den of some sort, bones scattered across the floor, tattered rags acting as a makeshift bed and curtains. There were also newspapers, a toothbrush sitting in a putrid glass of water, bristles bent beyond repair, along with other items that would indicate a human had been living there. The excessive shedding and stench, however, told a different story.
“I thought werewolves only transformed in moonlight,” Kara whispered. “It’s not even dusk.”
“what’s up guys were back!” Grayson and Ethan screamed in the camera.
“today we are going to do the eat it or wear it challenge buttttttt, by request we invited a special friend to do it with us today.” Ethan said.
“that sounded wrong. but for real come on out!” Grayson added laughing.
I pop up in front of the camera sitting between both boys. I was a youtuber as well and I had recently done a couple videos with the boys. Their fans kept commenting about when I’d be back for another video so Ethan and Grayson invited me to do this one.
“hey guys!” I said smiling to the camera.
“this is my friend y/n.” Grayson said wrapping an arm around my shoulder.
“please she’s my friend they don’t ship you guys together.” Ethan said shoving Grays arm off my shoulder.
I let out a loud laugh. It was true, ever since our first video together fans kept commenting and shipping me and Ethan together. Ethan and I just shrugged it off but we both kind of knew there was more than just a friendship going on.
“so like we said earlier we are going to do the eat it or wear it challenge, which is basically we just went to the grocery store and picked out gross things for each other to eat and if you can’t eat it you wear it but if you do eat it the person that picked it has to wear it.” Ethan and Grayson explained.
“i’m actually really excited for this.” I said smiling at the two boys beside me.
“well than let’s get going.” Ethan yelled!
“alright y/n you can go first, just pick a number out of this bag and see what you have to eat!” Grayson said holding up the paper bag.
I reached my hand in the paper bag pulling out the number 7.
“7.” I said showing the camera.
Ethan reached behind him giving the bag labeled number 7 to me.
“what is it?” I said scared to open it.
“just open it.” Grayson said laughing.
I could tell this was one of his. I opened the bag pulling out hot bean dip.
“i’m not wearing this so I guess i’ll have to suck it up and eat it.” I told the camera showing them my spoonful of hot bean dip.
I put it in my mouth instantly feeling myself choking.
“oh god this is terrible.” I said not swallowing the bean dip.
“if you spit it out you have to wear it.” Ethan said laughing.
I swallowed the hot bean dip showing the camera my empty mouth.
“NO!” Grayson said backing away from me.
I threw the hot bean dip all over his head. Now it was Grayson’s turn. He reached in the bag pulling out the number 3.
“number 3.” Grayson said showing the camera.
I reached up grabbing the bag. This one was mine and I knew for a fact neither of them was going to eat it. Grayson grabbed the bag pulling out a can of ground coffee
“what is this?” Grayson said looking at me.
I laughed at Grayson knowing he would be wearing ground coffee. Grayson put some on his spoon before shoving it in his mouth. He held his nose as he chewed and swallowed it.
“no, no you didn’t.” I said looking in his mouth to make sure he swallowed it.
“ew that’s gross.” Ethan said.
Grayson took the can of coffee dumping it on my head. I closed my eyes making sure it didn’t get in my eyes. Ethan and Grayson were howling laughing.
“I smell awful.” I said wiping my face with my shirt.
It was Ethan’s turn now. He reached in the bag pulling out number 11.
“number 11.” Ethan said shoving the paper in Grayson’s face.
Grayson reached up getting the bag and handing it to Ethan.
“cayenne pepper ? Isn’t that supposed to be spicy?” Ethan said pulling it out of the bag.
He puts some on the spoon and put it in his mouth.
“oh my gosh this is so bad.” Ethan said spitting it out.
Grayson and I are laughing our heads off as his face turns bright red. Grayson took the cayenne pepper dumping it all over his head. The game went on for a little while and we were all very messy at this point. Ethan just had to eat sardines. He couldn’t do it so I got to pour them over his head. I stood up to pour it but I didn’t realize the razor sharp lid that was laying on the floor and I stepped right on it.
“oh man I think I just cut my foot.” I said sitting on the ground.
Ethan and Grayson got up running over to me.
“oh god that’s a lot of blood.” Ethan said running to grab a towel.
“Grayson grab the camera. We got some clickbait.” I said laughing.
Grayson grabbed the camera and walked back over to me. By now there was blood all over the floor.
“oh my gosh y/n what did you do?” Grayson asked zooming the camera in on me.
Ethan came back out with a towel applying pressure to the cut on my foot.
“are you okay?” Ethan asked freaking out.
“I don’t feel it, I think I’m in shock.” I said laughing.
Grayson was laughing too.
“y/n should be the one freaking out right now but she is all chill and then here is Ethan.” Grayson says zooming the camera in on Ethan.
“dude get the camera out of my face.” Ethan said shoving the camera away from him.
Ethan pulled the towel off my foot to reveal the big cut.
“that’s going to need stitches.” Ethan said picking me up and going to the bathroom.
We ran my foot under water to clean off the blood.
“I am not going to the hospital looking like this.” I said looking at the disgusting items that covered my body.
Ethan turned on the shower and we hopped in washing all the stuff off of us. Now I know what you’re thinking but we were fully clothed! We were soaking wet as Ethan picked me up carrying me to his truck. The cut was on the bottom of my foot so walking was a no go. Grayson got in the drivers seat still covered in disgusting stuff from the video. He was still rolling the camera making Ethan mad.
“How you doing back there y/n?” Grayson asked looking back at me.
I was still laughing and Ethan was still freaking out. He held my foot in his lap keeping the pressure on the cut.
“can I make up a story when we walk in. I don’t want to tell them that I cut my foot on the lid of a sardine can.” I said laughing some more.
“dude totally tell them like this crazy ass story.” Grayson said pulling in to the emergency room.
We got out and Ethan carried me in the room. The lady yelled at Grayson saying he could not have the camera rolling in the emergency room. I honestly didn’t feel any pain, because I think that I was still in shock from it happening. We were currently in a room and I was getting stitches, now I felt it. Ethan was beside me holding me while I got them. Grayson was secretly rolling the camera.
“am I going to have to wear crutches?” I asked laughing a little bit.
“you don’t wear crutches y/n you use them.” Ethan said laughing a little bit now too.
The doctor put it one painful stitch and I moved my foot.
“don’t move.” The doctor growled.
“I don’t think he likes me.” I whispered in the camera laughing.
Finally 13 stitches later my foot was completely stitched up. Grayson went to clear things up with the doctors so he handed Ethan the camera.
“look at this. How many?” Ethan said zooming the camera in on my stitches.
“13!” I said showing them off.
“You were a badass too.” He said sitting down next to me and focusing the camera in on our faces.
“I wish I could say you were too but…” I started, laughing at Ethan’s reaction.
“well I was worried.” He said looking at me.
“why were you worried?” I said bumping his shoulder with my own.
“well because I uh care about you.” Ethan admitted looking at his hands.
I couldn’t help the giant grin that appeared on my face.
“awe E that’s so cute.” I said laying my head on his shoulder.
He turned his face towards me and looked down at my lips. I could feel my heartbeat pick up as he got a little closer. I would be lying if I said I haven’t thought about kissing Ethan before. Ethan was moving too slow so I grabbed the back of his neck bringing his lips down on top of mine. He didn’t hesitate to kiss me back. I pulled away to breath and realized the camera was still recording.
“well we’ll definitely have to cut that out of the video.” Ethan said laughing.
“well I mean our fans do ship us.” I said poking his cheek.
