“Dan, you look really sweaty,” Phil remarked from across the room, looking at Dan as he tried with shaking hands to finish his tie. “It’s not even hot in here.”
“I’m sweating because I’m nervous, you twit!” Dan said, giving up on his tie for the moment.
“Are you having cold feet? Do you need to borrow a pair of my socks?” Phil asked, but Dan looked at him with his face set in worry.
“What if Y/N’s changed her mind?”
“She hasn’t changed her mind. She’s been tweeting like crazy in the next room all morning about how excited she is,” Phil replied easily, turning his phone in his hands. “You can’t look, though. She’s done loads of pictures of her in her dress.”
Dan looked up from wiping his palms on his pant legs. “And?”
Phil simply grinned at him before his eyes went wide in realization.
“No, wait. I’ve actually got an idea,” he said, and turned the camera on his phone on, pointing it at Dan. “You should make a video.”
“A video? Phil, I’m literally minutes away from getting married.”
“Exactly,” Phil said excitedly. “This will just be for you and Y/N. Just talk into the camera. Say how you feel.”
Dan let out a heavy sigh, rolling his eyes at his best man as he came to stand in front of him, camera on and waiting.
“Ok…um…hi, Y/N,” Dan started. “I feel like a tit doing this. I don’t know what to say.”
“What would you say to Y/N if she were in the room right now?”
“I would say I feel like a tit doing this.”
“I don’t know. I would say I’m sorry in advance if I trip over my own feet or say anything that makes you cringe so hard you second guess this whole thing. I think the universe messed up when I met you because you’re too good. I would say I still can’t believe you picked me and my messes. My life is so much less shit now that you’re in it, and tbh I wasn’t even sure who I really was before you, and I’m waffling on right now, I can feel it.”
“No, that’s good,” Phil encouraged. “Say something to end it.”
“I love you to bits. See you soon,” Dan said, and let out a nervous breath as Phil turned his camera off.
“Yeah, actually,” Dan replied, surprised. He turned to the mirror to try his tie again, and found that his hands were much steadier now, an easy smile on his face as he thought of you.
