I looked in the mirror and flattened out the front of my gown with my hands.
“____, can you help me with this?” I heard Dan call from his room.
“What is it?” I asked as he walked into my room fumbling with is tie.
“I can’t seem to- whoa.” His jaw dropped when he approached me.
“You look amazing, ____.” He whispered as I tied his tie for him. (Outfit:http://www.polyvore.com/m/set?.embedder=10463203&.svc=copypaste&id=145874804)
“Thanks, Dan.” I blushed.
We were getting ready for London’s west of London’s 84th Annual Black and White Ball. (Not a real thing btw)
“You’re date is a very lucky guy.” Dan chuckled.
“Oh, uh. About that…” I trailed off.
“Don’t tell me you didn’t get asked.” He sounded quite angry, offended almost.
“Nope.” I shrugged.
“No one should be alone tonight. I promise to save you a dance, okay?” He kissed my forehead.
He was about to leave when I called him. “Dan,” I started. I wanted to tell him so bad how I felt.
“Yes?” The way he replied it was almost like he knew and was waiting for me to say it.
“Y-you have a piece of hair.” I waved my hand for him to come towards me, he subsided and I comes through his bangs with my fingers.
“Perfect.” I whispered. I glanced from his eyes to his lips and back again.
We sat in silence for a moment and I had the slightest feeling that he maybe, just maybe would’ve kissed me, but then Phil came in.
“Uh, Dan, Maggie is here.” He said awkwardly.
“Right. Um, see you there then, ____?” Dan seemed a bit flustered.
Dan walked out and I waited until he was out of earshot. “Damn you Philip.” I grunted.
“What did I do?!” He asked as I walked past him.
I called a taxi and waited for my horrid night to begin.
I got to the door and the usher asked for my name.
“________.” I replied.
“Thank you for joining us tonight Miss ____. And might I add, you look lovely this evening.”
“I wish I had a date to believe that.” I scoffed.
I got in and there were tons of people. You entered in on a massive balcony that had staircases going down both sides. The floor was a beautiful white marble and massive chandeliers hung from the ceiling.
I began to walk down one of the staircases and spotted Dan in the corner of my eye. He was standing with a very jealous looking Maggie.
She was wearing a short white dress that was very simple. It didn’t seem “ball appropriate”. (Outfit:http://www.polyvore.com/m/set?.embedder=10463203&.svc=copypaste&id=145875765)
Classical music floated through through the air.
I sat at an empty table and watched Dan and Maggie dance the night away.
“You too?” A woman sitting opposite asked me taking a swig of wine.
“What happened to you?” I asked.
“My husband and I went to London for our honeymoon and I found him cheating on me.” She took another large drink of wine. “How ‘bout you?” She asked.
“I fell in love with my best friend/ flat mate and I’m here alone and he’s here with his beautiful date.” I sighed.
“Sweetheart, you can get any guy in here…” She started, then she saw the way I was looking at him.
“Listen honey, I can promise you that the little tramp he’s with is probably going to be drunk and all over people by the end of the night and you are going to get laid by Prince Charming.” She sniffed.
“Thanks Miss. You go find your prince too. I saw a few men staring your way.” I smiled.
“Like who?” She scoffed.
I got up and went up to a guy that looked about her age and told him that she was here alone and really needed a dance partner and he went up to her and danced.
Now I’ve just got to get Dan.
I saw him and Maggie slow dancing and my heart shattered.
I played it off like I was getting a drink then retreated back to my table.
A few minutes later I lost track of Dan and Maggie.
“Love sucks.” I heard from behind me.
I quickly turned around the the familiar voice.
“Dan!” I almost shouted.
“May I have this dance, m'lady?” He asked bowing.
“Yes sir.” I replied curtsying.
My arms snaked around his neck as his wrapped around my hips as we slowly swayed to the music.
“So what made you leave Miss Margret?” I asked with a laugh.
“She ditched me for some rich kid.” He scoffed.
“Dan,” I started hesitantly, “there’s something I’ve been wanting to tell you for a really long time.”
I paused and brought my head a bit closer to his ear, nuzzling into his neck.
“I kind of, by accident, fell in love with you. And I know that you’re my best friend but I want to be that and so much more.” I sighed.
“Really?!” He asked with surprise.
I shakily nodded.
He smirked then crashed his lips onto mine.
I ran my fingers through his hair as he pulled me as close to him as I could possibly get.
I had to break this kiss because I was smiling so hard.
“You would not believe how long I’ve waited to do that.” He smiled, a bit out of breath.
I moved my hands from behind his neck and cupped his face. I ran my thumb over his lips.
I couldn’t help but giggle from pure happiness.
“I love you.” I whispered into his neck.
“You know earlier when I told you that you looked amazing, I didn’t mean it like that. I wanted to say beautiful or something, but your beauty is so incomprehensible that no word in any human language could grasp it. That is how I love you. So much that I can’t even tell you.” He mumbled kissing my neck.
We danced until it was time for some lady to come up and talk about why this ball is a good thing for our society, but Dan and I weren’t paying attention to anything. Anytime we weren’t dancing and had our faces buried into each other, our hands were locked together and our eyes were set on only one another.
When the ball was over, Dan and I walked outside hand in hand. It was pouring and we decided to do the whole “kiss in the rain” cliche.
We caught a cab and made our way back to the flat.
We ran out of the cab and into the rain and he kissed me once more. “God I love you so much.”
We made our way into the flat without our lips breaking from each other.
“Dan, before we do anything, can I tell you something?” I asked before kisses.
“I- uhm, I’m um, a uh virgin.” I hesitated.
“Are you sure about this then?” He asked with the utmost amount of affection in his eyes.
I nodded slightly then looked up at him and smiled.
Our lips collided again and he put his hands on my hips. My hands trailed up his back and onto his head where my fingers tangled into his hair.
He bit my bottom lip begging for entrance and I reluctantly gave in. His tongue discovered every corner of my mouth as his hands trailed up my back.
He reached the zipper of my dress and it slowly slid off my body.
“Whoa.” He said staring at my figure.
I crashed my lips back into his and unbuttoned his jacket and slid it off his shoulders.
His hands were still at my waist, tugging at the top of my tights. I helped him pull them off leaving me in my bra and underwear.
I quickly pulled away from the kiss that he was falling deeper and deeper into and ran down the hall.
“____, you fucking tease!” He shouted.
I ran into my room and stood right next the door.
“C'mon ____ where’d you go?” He called.
I heard him walking closer to my door and sneakily reached into the hallway and pulled him into the room by his tie and rejoining the kiss.
He chuckled and pushed me into the door. I forcefully pushed back and began to unbutton his shirt.
He was beginning to become anxious and was pushing his hips against mine, which only made me unbutton slower.
“You’re horrible, you know that?” He said looking down at me.
“How so?” I teased looking into his gorgeous brown eyes.
He rolled his eyes at me and pressed our lips together once more.
I finally got his shirt off and he took the gesture of removing his pants leaving himself in only his boxers.
We climbed into my bed and our lips joined again.
I broke the kiss and looked him in the eye. The only sound in the room was our uneven breathing. Dan didn’t say anything because he knew that I needed to go slow.
I waited for our breathing to catch up with us a bit then pressed my lips to his again.
My lips traced his jawline and up to his ear.
“I love you. So much.” I whispered.
I began to kiss down his neck as he grabbed my bum causing me to yelp with surprise.
“Sorry.” He cringed.
I smiled and he pressed his lips to my neck and began to suck. Hard. That’s gonna leave a mark.
I accidentally let a small moan escape my lips when he sucked on the space between my neck and my collar bone.
“Looks like I found your weak spot.” He smiled.
He grabbed my waist and pulled me on top of him. I was not straddling him and he unclipped my bra.
I pulled the duvet on top of us to make the situation more intimate.
The next thing I knew, Dan and I were both completely nude and I was now below him. My body was suddenly cascaded in euphoria as our uneven breathes and moans created a symphony of love and amity.
My sharp breathes caught in my throat as my body shook with pleasure and the only thing I could manage to get out was a loud moan and his name.
He reached his climax only mere seconds after and laid down on the bed next to me.
We both had choppy, disproportionate breathes as if we had just come out of water from being held under.
I rolled over to face him. Our breathing had slowed to about the same pace.
I sat up and held the duvet up to my chest. He sat up with me.
I pressed my forehead to his and bit my lip.
“I love you so, so much.” I whispered, nearly inaudible.
He smiled and lightly pecked my lips then wrapped an arm around my waist pulling me to lay down with him.
I pushed his sticking bangs back from his sweaty forehead and he traced the frame of my face with his finger.
“You’re so beautiful.” He said breaking the silence.
I grabbed his hand that he had placed on my cheek and kissed it. Then I scooted closer to him and nuzzled my head into his neck.
“I love you _____.” He whispered into my ear.
We both lied there with my head on his chest, listening to the thunderstorm outside.
He hummed 'Not In That Way’ by Sam Smith and I focused of his steady heartbeat.
“And I’d never ask you 'cause deep down I’m certain I know what you’d say. You’d say I’m sorry, believe me, I love you, but not in that way.” I sang along with his humming.
“That’s how I felt.” I mumbled.
“You shouldn’t have. And I’m so sorry.” He sighed.
“Why didn’t you ever say anything?” I asked.
“____, that’s simple. It’s the same reason you didn’t, skinny love. When two people are in love with each other but too shy to tell.”
“I love you, Dan.” I said.
“And I love you, ____.” He said kissing me on the lips.
“Goodnight, Daniel.” I muttered, lying my head back down on his chest.
“Goodnight, love.” He replied kissing my head.
I woke up to the soft sound of Dan breathing.
I silently climbed out of bed not wanting to wake him.
I threw on a pair of underwear and one of his jumpers.
I made my way to the kitchen and turned on a Beatles record.
I hummed along with 'Here Comes the Sun’ when a pair of arms wrapped around my waist.
Dan swayed along to the song and rested his head on my shoulder while I made breakfast.
“I love you.” He hummed in his deep morning voice.
I smiled and turned my head to kiss him.
He smiled into the kiss and spun my around to face him.
He bit my lip and I jumped onto him, wrapping my legs around his waist.
His hands crept up the sides of my thighs and onto my bum.
He lifted me so I was sitting on the counter and my face was now above his.
He trailed kisses down my neck and onto my breasts.
“Oh my god my eyes! Why? Oh god stop please! No!” We heard Phil yell.
“Sorry.” Dan shouted as Phil ran down the hallway with his eyes closed.
