"I’m living every girls dream.” (Ethan)
You had been a fan of the Dolan twins for as long as you can remember. You were quite possible their biggest fan. You had tumblr and twitter accounts dedicated to them, and you had met so many cool people through it all. All you wanted to do was to meet them and tell them how much they meant to you. You lived in LA and once you found out that they had officially moved in to their new place in LA, you made it your mission to meet them and tell them how much you loved them. You and a group of girls that you met on twitter, who also lived in LA, went out one night to a place that you heard that the twins would be out. You searched high and low for just the smallest glimpse of them.
“Look, is that Grayson?!” One of your friends called. You looked in the same direction and noticed that it was in fact Grayson.
“It is, it is!” You cheered.
“Ethan has to be around here somewhere then.” Another friend said. You and your group made your way over to Grayson who was just standing there aimlessly on his phone and not paying attention.
“Grayson?” You asked.
“Hey guys.” He said smiling. You started talking to him and you took a couple pictures with him, and then he made his way around the group, taking pictures with them as well. You stood back and watched as your friends laughed and talked with Grayson.
“Why aren’t you over there?” You head a familiar voice say behind you. You turned around and saw Ethan standing behind you. Your eyes widened and you felt your face get hot.
“E-e-ethan, hi.” You stuttered.
“Hey beautiful. What’s your name?” He asked as he pulled you in for a hug.
“I’m (Y/N). I love you so much. Like, you have no idea how much you and Grayson mean to me.” You said. Ethan smiled and you wanted to scream. He was so cute.
“You mean a lot to us too. We wouldn’t be here without the support of people like you. We’re so grateful for all the support you guys give us.” He said. He sat down on the bench next to you and pulled you down next to him. You sat there and talked to him for a while.
“(Y/N), we should get going.” One of your friends called after a while.
“Leaving so soon?” Ethan pouted.
“Awe, you don’t want me to leave?” You asked. He shook his head.
“You should come hang out with us. I don’t want to stop talking to you.” He said You turned to your friends and smiled.
“I think I’m gonna hang out here for a while longer.” You said.
“Okay girlie, have fun.” They called back. They all walked back to the parking garage and you turned back to Ethan.
“Let’s get out of here then. I’ll call an Uber.” Grayson offered.
“No need. My car’s in the garage. I can drive us.” You said.
“Cool, let’s go then.” Ethan said. You lead them back to your car, and headed off to their apartment.
“It’s not much yet, but we just moved in, so we have a valid excuse.” Grayson said when you walked in.
“It’s okay.” You laughed. For the rest of the night, you just hung out, listening to music, eating junk food, and just having fun. Ethan sat down on the sofa and you sat down next to him.
“Look. (Y/N), I know we just met and all, but you’re a really cool girl, and I hope that we can have some kind of relationship.” He said.
“Ethan, this has honestly been the best night of my life, hanging out with two of my favorite people in the world. And I would love if something could happen between us.” You said.
“Let’s go out then. Tomorrow night.” He said.
“Tomorrow?” You asked. He nodded.
“Yeah. Tomorrow. Unless you have something planned. Because I don’t.” He said.
“No, I don’t have anything planned. Sure, I’d like that.” You said.
“Awesome.” He said. You and Ethan exchanged numbers. You noticed the time on your phone and let out a sigh.
“It’s getting late. I should probably get going.” You said. You got up from the sofa and Ethan and Grayson walked you to the door.
“Bye (Y/N), it was fun hanging out tonight.” Grayson said.
“It was. We should do it again sometime.” You smiled.
“See you tomorrow?” Ethan asked. You nodded.
“Tomorrow.” You nodded.
“Bye (Y/N).” I said. She hugged both Grayson and I and left. I shut the door behind her and when I turned around, Grayson had a confused look on his face.
“What?” I asked.
“You’re seeing her tomorrow? And I didn’t get invited? How rude.” He said.
“We’re going on a date tomorrow, actually. Third wheeling doesn’t really seem like your game.” I said. His eyes widened and he smiled.
“You’re going out with her?” He asked.
“That’s what I said.”
“That’s awesome. She’s a cool girl.” He said.
“She is. I hope things work out between us.” I said. We hung out in the living room for a little while longer, just talking. After a while, Grayson let out a loud yawn.
“I’m getting tired. I’m gonna go to bed. Good night.” He said as he got up from the sofa.
“Yeah, me too. Good night.” I said. I walked off to my room and laid down in bed. I opened twitter scrolled through my timeline for a while.
“Good times, good people, good night.😊” I tweeted then went to sleep.

The next day, I was a nervous wreck, getting ready for my date with (Y/N). I had made reservations at a nice restaurant, but didn’t have anything planned for the rest of the night. But I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible, without making me seem like I was needy.
“Hey :)” She text as I was getting ready.
“Hey, you ready for tonight?” I asked.
“That’s actually why I was texting.” She said.
“Oh no, you’re not cancelling on me are you?” I asked.
“Haha, no. I just wanted to know what we were doing, do I could dress accordingly.”
“Well, I just had a nice dinner planned, and then I figured I’d see where the night took us.” I explained.
“Sounds good. Also, do you want me to drive? I don’t want you spending money on an Uber on top of everything else.” She said.
“I mean, I would never turn down saving money, but it’s what ever you want.”
“So, what time should I pick you up?”
“How about 5:30? Given all the travel time and what not.”
“Alright, sounds good. See you later. :)”
“See you. :)” I replied. I put my phone back on the charger and finished getting ready. Just as I was done, Grayson called from the living room.
“ETHAN, (Y/N) IS HERE.” He said.
“COMING.” I called back. I sprayed on a bit of cologne and walked out to the living room.
“Hey.” She said when she saw me. God, she was so beautiful. “You ready to go?” She asked. I nodded.
“Have fun you two.” Grayson said.
“Bye Gray.” I said. I walked (Y/N) out, and we headed back to her car.
“So, where are we off to?” She asked.
“I made reservations for us at this Italian restaurant.” I said.
“Oooh, yay I love Italian.” She said. We headed off on the way to the restaurant and we got there in no time.
“We’re actually here a bit early, cool.” I said.
“Hey, Ethan, before we go inside, can I ask you something?”
“What’s up?” I asked.
“Can we like, keep this on the DL. Like, no posting this anywhere. I just want this to be between you and me, for the time being. No snapchat, no twitter, no instagram. Until we’re sure about what we want. I don’t want everyone to go crazy.” She said. I smiled and nodded.
“Sure. But, can we still take pictures, even though we won’t post them anywhere?” I asked.
“Of course.” She smiled. We got out of the car and made our way inside.
“Ethan, this is amazing.” She said when we were seated.
“This is pretty nice. It didn’t look like this online.” I said. During dinner, we talked, and got to knowing each other pretty well. She was absolutely amazing and I didn’t want the night to end.
“Now what?” She asked after we finished eating.
“There’s an arcade a few blocks from here. Wanna go?” I asked.
“Sure.” She said smiling. We were at the arcade for a couple of hours, and I ended up winning her a stuffed monkey from one of the games.
“He looks like you.” She said sarcastically.
“Are you calling me a monkey?” I asked laughing. She nodded.
“Yeah, but monkeys are cute. So, you’re a cute monkey.” She said.
“You’re not a monkey, but you’re definitely cuter than anything.” I said. Her cheeks flushed and I smiled. “You’re cute when you’re nervous.” I said as I wrapped my arm around her shoulders.
“I’m having a really good time with you. I don’t want this to end.” She said.
“Trust me, I don’t either.” I said. After the arcade, we just drove around Downtown LA, listening to music and just enjoying being with each other. At around midnight, we finally decided to call it a night.
“Well, I guess this is it, then.” She said when we got back up to my apartment.
“But hey, at least it was a good date.” I said.
“Yes, that is true. I was an amazing date.” She said.
“Text me when you get home.” I said.
“Will do. Bye Ethan.” She said as we hugged.
“Bye (Y/N).” I said smiling. We stood there in each other’s arms for a while before either one of us said anything.
“I guess I better get going.” She said, not loosening her grip around my torso.
“Yeah, okay.” I said, not moving either. After a couple more minutes, we finally let go.
“Okay, bye, for real this time.” She said. “Bye Ethan.”
“Bye (Y/N).” I said as she walked down the hallway. I went inside and saw Grayson sitting on the sofa, watching a movie.
“Finally you’re home. I’ve been so bored by myself. How was your date?” He asked.
“It was absolutely amazing. We had dinner, and the afterwards we hung out at an arcade, and then we just drove around for a while. It was a chill night, but it was amazing.” I said.
“That’s great. I’m so happy for you man.” He said.
“Thanks bro. I really like her. I hope that we can have something.” I said.
“Yeah, and I like hanging out with her. She’s fun.” Grayson said.
“She is really fun to hang out with.” I said. Just then, there was a knock on the door. I turned to answered, and when I did. I saw (Y/N) standing there.
“(Y/N), what are you-” My words were interrupted by her lips pressing against mine.
“Good night Ethan.” She said when she pulled away. Then she walked off without saying anything.
“Who was that?” Grayson asked when I shut the door.
“(Y/N). She just kissed me then she walked off.” I said.
“Oh man, she kissed you? On the first date?” He said. I just nodded. I couldn’t find the words to say. Of course I was happy that she kissed me, but I was kind of upset that she left without saying anything. I went to my room, changed into some sweats and a t-shirt and went back into the living room with Grayson. After a while, (Y/N) text.
“Hey. 😘 I just got home.” She said.
“Hey, so um, are we not gonna talk about that?” I asked.
“What kind of date doesn’t end with a kiss?”
“But, you just left. Without saying anything.”
“I know. I couldn’t say anything. It was so hard for me to work up the courage to kiss you, much less stick around for conversation“
“Well, aside from the fact that it took me by surprise, it was nice. 😙” I said.
“Well, I’m glad you enjoyed it, because I did too.” She said.
“So when can I see you again?” I asked.
“Whenever you want bup.” She said.
“Right now? 😉”
“Well, except for right now. 😝” She said.
“Okay, well soon then.” I said.
“Yes, soon. Well, I’m tired, so I’m headed off to bed. Good night Ethan.” She said.
“Good night (Y/N), talk to you later.” I replied. I opened up twitter and followed a few fans, tweeted some people, and even slid into some DMs.
“Jeez Ethan, you’re so active.” One fan tweeted.
“Just very very happy atm. Wanted to spread around some positivity. 😊😊” I replied to her tweet.
“Hope to share some good news with you all soon. But I am one tired boy and I’m going to bed. Goodnight everyone.😄” I tweeted. For the rest of the night, Grayson and I watched movies in the living room, but all I could think about was (Y/N).
