Parties Can Hurt Sometimes Part7 (Dan Howell)
An incoming call woke me up the next morning, with sleepy eyes I accepted the call before sitting up straight, looking to my right I found that side empty making me frown sadly.
“Hello?” I asked rubbing my eyes
“Morning (y/n)” I heard Dan say
“Dan… You left early, don’t you know it’s rude to leave your hook up waking up the next morning alone?” I joked
“Yeah… I’m sorry about that Phil texted me about a meeting we had at 8 so I had to leave.”
“Oh it’s okay. About yesterday…” I started to say
“I know I’m glad we talked too, I really did miss you and I’m glad we’re friends again” He said warmly
“Me too. I missed you too, umm Dan after we talked… Do you remember anything else happening?” I asked not wanting to say it right away
“Not really, after that we just went to bed and that’s it. Why? Did I say something in my sleep?” He asked worriedly
“Oh nothing, nothing. It-it doesn’t matter…” I answered quietly
We said our goodbyes after that as I sat on my bed looking down at my phone, unable to move, of course he wouldn’t remember it and even if he did why would of he said anything. Shaking my head I got up from the bed, making it and walking to the kitchen for some breakfast. Taking out everything I needed and starting to prepare my meal I kept thinking back to last night, to the kiss, to how I’d told Dan we couldn’t sleep in the same bed anymore and minutes later we were doing the exact same thing. Even though I knew it was wrong I couldn’t help but want it to happen again, but knew better and knew it couldn’t happen. After breakfast I took a shower, got ready and headed into the town. It was a nice day out and I still needed to finish my Christmas shopping. Town was fairly busy like always but not the point where it was suffocating thankfully, walking into a few shops I got things I’d seen before but haven’t had time to get, heading to lazy oaf for some new clothes. After that I went to a cute little restaurant near by opting to continue looking around afterwards, once I finished lunch I was heading down the street when a familiar voice stopped me.
“(Y/N)?” Said Samantha in a questioning tone coming closer to me, once she saw it was me a smile crept onto her face as she came to hug me “It is you, how’d you been? It seems so long since I last saw you” She said pulling away
“Yeah, it’s been quite a while. I’ve been good, you?” I politely asked }
“Oh I’ve been great. Specially today, would you believe Dan surprised me with breakfast this morning?” She said making me frown “He can be so sweet at times”
“Really? This morning?” I asked with a raised eyebrow
“Yeah, why?” She said confused
“Oh nothing. I just thought I heard Phil say they had a meeting today or something like that, must of got the day wrong, right?” I said chuckling to which she joined
“Probably. Well what are you doing right now? I was on my way to their place so maybe you would want to come with” She said tilting her head slightly to the right
“Sure, I’m done shopping anyways so why not” I said with a smirk trying to hide my anger
I mean seriously Dan? That was your big ‘meeting’? He could of just told me the truth and say he was going to Samantha’s place instead of lying. It’s not like I would get mad of it, she is his girlfriend after all and if he wanted to see her it would be more than obvious and okay. Shaking the thought off we headed to the train station and then to their house. On the way there Sam tried making small talk to which I responded a few things but not the hole 'OMG we are so gonna become best friends’ type of way. Once in front of their door I was about to knock on it when Sam stopped me holding up a key with a little smirk and opened the door. It took me a second to snap out of it and get inside, thinking to myself 'what the actual hell?’. Since when does she have a key to their apartment? Why don’t I have a key to their apartment, I’ve known them way longer than she has and she is the one with a key? If I was mad before now I was just straight up furious. Walking into the lounge we were greeted by the both of them playing some video game I really didn’t care about since all my mind could process was that I needed to talk to Dan.
“Hey guys! Look who I found wondering town” Sam said as I put the bags I was carrying on the table
“Hey…” I said as they looked my way
“(Y/N)!” Phil said pausing the game and coming to hug me
“Hey” Dan said shyly, clearly not expecting me here
“What’s all the bags about?” Phil questioned trying to look inside on of them until I stopped him
“No…” I said moving my finger side to side “This are presents, you can’t see them. One of them might or might not be yours” I said with a smile
“Uuuuuh” Phil said intrigued moving away from the bags
“I’m bored!” Samantha whined “Can we watch a movie?”
“That sounds fun, I’ll go make the popcorn. Any help guys?” I asked no on in particular
“I’ll help” Dan said getting up as Sam looked through Netflix
We walked in silence to the kitchen, as I started looking for popcorn and put it in the microwave then looked for other things we could eat. Just as I was taking some bowls out I decided it was a good time to confront Dan.
“So… How was the meeting?” I asked still focused on what I was doing
“It-It was good. We talked about a lot of things” He said making me take a deep breath before turning to look at him
“Really? That’s interesting since Samantha told me you came by her house around the time you said you were in a meeting” I said tilting my head a bit with a questioning look
“Did she?” He asked clearly nervous which made me sigh
“You know Dan, if you were going to see her you should of just told me. I mean it’s not like I was going to get mad or anything. She is your girlfriend after all” I said coming closer to him and putting one hand on his arm
“But that’s the thing” He started moving away from me and closer to the sink “Sam is my girlfriend, not you.” He said turning to look at me
“I know that” I said frowning in confusion
“Then why did you kiss me?” He said slightly loud to which I moved closer to him in an effort to make him quiet
“Wow, wow, wow. Hold on a minute.” I said shaking my head as I blinked a few times “I did not kiss you, we kissed each other.” I clarified
“Well we shouldn’t have. It was wrong” He said harshly, hurting me a little
“I-I’m sure we didn’t mean to. We were tired and really close to each other, it was probably just default, impulsion. Like some type of muscle memory” I tried to explain
“You can’t tell anyone! You can’t tell anyone, specially Sam. You can’t do that to me” He said coming a little closer making me frown in slight anger
Did he really think I would tell someone, knowing he’s in a relationship. That I would tell his girlfriend out of everyone I know, that I would tell her? Low blow Howell.
“I-I wasn’t going to” I said still frowning as I shake my head and looked up at him with pursed lips from anger “I should probably go.”
Turning around I started to head out the kitchen but before fully out I turned around to look at him.
“Oh and by the way. It’s so nice to know that your girlfriend of a few months has a key to your apartment over your best friend of two years.” I finished raising an eyebrow
Walking into the lounge I took hold of all the bags making up an excuse to why I had to leave before heading out the door, seeing Dan on the way out I just mumbled a small 'bye’ and left.
Stumbling into my we kept our lips together in a passionate kiss, our hands roaming every inch of our bodies. Pulling apart I took a deep breath before making him lay down on the bed, me on top of him as I reconnected our lips once more. I left his hands move to my bum squeezing it hard.
“Oh Joe…” I moaned out making him smirk and do it again
As he started kissing my neck I smiled and let myself go, being consumed into the night and the pleasure.
