Dan x reader fluff. Very short.
Your eyes are heavy. You’re in that state where at any moment you think you can fall asleep. Even your blinks feel slow and almost drunk. Even with having your face smushed into the pillow you are fully comfortable.
The week to end all weeks was finally over and you had freedom. How are you going to spend this new found freedom from work and life? Of course everyone knows that the answer is spending it with Dan. Being even just in the presence of him makes you feel like all of your problems melt away. How does someone non verbally make you feel safe. You came into his room. Flopped on the bed and without a word he knew what you needed. What’s even better is what he’s doing to you. No it’s not sex, although. No.
He’s petting your hair. It’s the simplest of gestures really. His fingers start to run from your forehead to the ponytail near the back of your head. This is where he tugs slightly as he continues his decent down to the tips of your hair. This process is repeated a million times. Hand on scalp brushing through your soft hair. A slight tug as he continues down to the ends. It’s simple. He’s not even thinking while doing it. But god does it put you in a relaxed state. How can such a simple gesture do so much to help you? Deep down I think everyone can feel better with a few strokes to the old cranium holder.
