Title: “It’s been six years” // Genre: fluff/romantic // Word Count: 1083
Summary: After the liveshow, Dan looks back in time while he is preparing the new Japan Haul video with his fiancé, Phil.
“I was so scared that Louise
might accidentally out us during the liveshow” Dan said as he moved the camera
on the tripod.
“I know, babe, so was I. Why
did you even answer? You know she’s all about the engagement gifts right now”
Dan looked at Phil and met his
ocean blue eyes. He could literally get lost into the deepness of those eyes
for entire hours. Slowly, he started walking towards Phil, and gently hold his
hand as he sat in the couch beside him.
“Well, as far as I can
remember, it wasn’t me the one who told her about the wedding” Dan whispered
into Phil’s ear with a wide open smile.
“It was an accident!! I
promise! But I was so happy, and…”
“And drunk” added Dan.
Phil gave him a faked angry
“Maybe… Anyway, I’ve already
told her that we aren’t getting any gifts until the wedding, but she just won’t
go with it!” sighed Phil. “I’ll go get the stuff we bought for the Haul”
He gave Dan a peck on the
cheek and left the room. Dan looked down at his hand, and smiled when he saw
the most beautiful ring around his finger.
Oh, boy, what a rollercoaster
of feelings. But it had always been that way, all the time since two thousand
and nine. Dan could still remember how nervous he felt at the train station.
How Phil’s arms recieved him and made him feel like home. How awkward it was to
sit in front of a camera that wasn’t on Skype. Or also, how soft and sweet were
Phil’s lips during their first kisses.
Dan had girlfriends before. He
had been kissed and he also slept with other people before Phil appeared in his
life. Nevertheless, he knew that no one ever had or would make him feel like
It was so unbeliavable, to
think that it all started by watching an emo guy with a hair, a lion and such
an amazing personality on YouTube. And then the Skype calls begun, and just by
hearing his voice, by looking at his face, by daydreaming about living
together… by all those moments Dan realized he might had feelings for this boy.
But no, Phil Lester wasn’t a
normal boy. He had the power to see inside him, to tell when he was sad or
angry, and he had the power to make him a better person. Not because he wanted
to, of course. Phil never saw Dan as a broken object with lots of existential
crisis that needed to be fix, but as a giant nerd like him that loved the word
‘placenta’ and who would always make him laugh and feel loved, as well as happy.
That was one of the main reasons why Dan loved him.
“Dan!” shouted Phil from his
“What?” he answered loudly.
“I can’t find those anime
shirts we bought at the- Nevermind I found them!”
“Okay, just tell me if you
need any help.”
Dan took his phone and started
looking through the pictures they had taken in Japan, selecting the ones that
would go fine with the Haul video.
It was amazing, the fact that
they had actually been to Japan. The fact that, after six years of knowing each
other, after six years of being together and growing up while creating this
world of Dan and Phil… they were getting married.
Time really passed by. The
first Phil Is Not On Fire seemed like yesterday, and yet so far away. Dan could
have never imagined that all this beautiful things would happen to him. Meeting
Phil, starting his own channel, the radio, the Britz, Big Hero 6, all the
places they had visited and the friends they made together, the book, the tour,
Japan… and now a wedding.
Just a week ago, Dan woke up
with the most beautiful surprise ever: Phil was taking him in a private boat
ride along the Cherry Blossoms, just the two of them enjoying Japan.
It was the perfect date.
Probably the most romantic one they had in a long time, sicne they had been
very busy with the book and stuff. Anyway, Dan could have never thought that
Phil was about to bend down and sit on his knee and say:
“Dan, my Bear, my love.” Phil
started. By this point, Dan was about to cry already, his heart beating fast
“All my life I felt out of place. I never had enough confidence to even think that
one day, I would meet someone who might actually like me for who I am, or laugh
sincerely with me. Someone that made me feel special just by looking at me,
someone I could bet my life on… until six years ago, when I met this obsessed
weirdo on the internet that found his way into my life and never left since
then. Now I know that I don’t want him to leave. The last few years were the
happiest years of my whole life, and I’m glad to say that it is because I had
you beside me that I was able to realize that I never want this feeling to end.
I love you more than any man has ever loved someone in this world, Dan. So
please… Would you marry me?”
You can probably guess what
the answer was.
Dan smiled at the memory,
wiping a tear away. He heard Phil walking down the hallway before he appeared
with a bag full of Japanesse stuff that he left beside the couch. Phil sat on
the couch and looked at Dan.
“Dan? Have you been crying?”
Phil asked “Oh my god, is everything okay?”
Dan didn’t answer. Instead, he
threw himself at Phil, putting his arms around Phil’s neck and letting the
tears run down his face. He felt his fiancé pulling him closer, stroking his
“We are getting married,
Phil.” he whispered.
“I know…” Phil answered,
holding him closer “It is a little bit scary.”
“I have never been more sure
of anything in my life.”
Phil pulled back to gaze into
Dan’s eyes. He already started crying himself, with tears of happiness and
love. Slowly, he gave Dan a kiss on the lips. It was very soft, very quiet, and
full of love, just like the first one.
“I love you.” he said, holding
Dan’s face between his hands.
“I love you too.” Dan replied,
pulling him closer again.
