Date Night. (Ethan)
You and Ethan have been together for a little over a year. You and him met right after he moved to LA, and you started talking and got pretty close over the span of a few months, and then you started dating, and have been going strong ever since. He had recently gotten busy with meetings, tour planning, and other projects, now that him and Grayson were getting more popular and becoming well known.
“Baby, we need to hang out soon. I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever, even though it’s only been like three days.” You text him one afternoon, while you were sitting at your desk, bored at work, not doing anything.
“I knooooow. I miss you. I’m just so busy right now, it’s hard to find time when we’re both free. 😩😩 But I think I have a free night, this saturday, if you’re free, we can go out. 😏” He said.
“Well look at that. I’m free too. I’ll see you then. 😘” You replied.
“Alright, cool. See you then baby girl. 😊” You continued texting until he had to get into his meeting. You got back to work at your boring job, just thinking about Ethan and how excited you were to finally be able to go out.

It was finally Saturday night and you were getting ready for your date with Ethan. Just as you were finishing up getting ready, you heard knock on the door. You ran downstairs and answered to find Ethan standing there with a bouquet of roses and a cheesy grin on his face.
“Hey beautiful.” He said as he pulled you into his arms. He kissed you softly. “These are for you.” He said as he handed over the roses. “You ready to go?” He asked.
“Just about. Lemme go grab my keys and my purse.” You said. You set the roses on the counter and ran back upstairs to grab your things. “Let’s go.” You said smiling. Ethan followed you out and you headed down to the parking garage, his arm wrapped tightly around your shoulders.
“So, I was thinking Chinese for dinner.” He said to you as you got into his car.
“Sounds good to me.” You smiled. You drove to the restaurant and were seated pretty quickly when you got there. Over dinner, you spent most of the time catching up, and he gave you a few hints about some of the projects that he and Grayson had coming up.
“Yeah, and all this includes a tour, right?” You asked.
“Well, eventually, yes.” He sighed. He rubbed his thumb across the back of your hand. “But, it will only be two months, at the most.” He said. You let out a sigh.
“Well, until that happens, we’re gonna have to spend as much time together as we can.” You smiled.
“I thought you would be more upset. I’m not ready to leave you.” He said.
“I’m not ready for you to leave either, but why would I be upset? You’re doing what you love, and your living out your dreams. I am so proud of you. Beyond proud, really.” You said.
“I love you (Y/N).” He said with a big smile on his face.
“I love you too, Ethan.” You said. He leaned across the table and kissed you softly. As you finished dinner, you started goofing off and taking silly pictures of each other. After a while, you could tell that Ethan was getting annoyed.
“(Y/N), I don’t even think I can see anymore. Your flash has blinded me.” He laughed.
“Okay, this is the last one.” You laughed as you snapped one last picture of him.
“Date night with my love. 💙 (he was annoyed that i kept taking pictures of him 😅)” You captioned on instagram. You sat at the table for a little while longer, just talking and grazing on the plates that were left on the table.
“You ready to go?” He asked after a while, when the waiter finally took your last batch of plates. You nodded.
“Yeah, let’s go.” You said.
“Do you have ice cream back at your place?” He asked. You nodded. “How about we finish this night up with some movies and ice cream then?” He asked.
“That sounds good to me.” You smiled and kissed him on the cheek. When you got back to your apartment, you and Ethan made yourselves comfortable on your couch and watched movies for the rest of the night. During the previews on one of the movies, Ethan got up to go to the restroom and you sat there watching the previews. Your phone buzzed on the coffee table, catching your attention. An instagram notification flashed across your screen, alerting you of a new comment on one of your photos. You opened instagram and saw that Ethan had commented on the picture that you posted of him.
“i look so ugly in this omg” the comment read. You just shook your head and set your phone back down on the table. You heard the bathroom door open and you watched Ethan as he walked back over to the couch and sat down.
“Why are you staring at me like that? You look upset.” He said.
“Why did you comment that on your picture?” You asked.
“Um, because it’s true.” He said.
“No. That is not even close to true. I don’t understand why you always say that about pictures of you. You are far from ugly. You are one of the cutest people I have ever met.” You said. He sat there staring at the floor, his jaw clenched, for a while. He looked from the floor and smiled at you, his cheeks were bright red.
“So, you’re saying that you’re only dating me because I’m cute?” He asked sarcastically.
“No, that’s just a benefit of dating you. You are literally one of the sweetest and most caring people I have ever met in my life. That’s why I’m dating you. I just lucked out with the fact that your cute.” You said as you kissed him.
“I love you (Y/N). How did I get so lucky to have you in my life?” He asked as he pulled you into his arms, kissing you on the top of your head.
“I love you too Ethan.” You said. After that, the previews were finally over and you cuddled on the couch, eating ice cream and watching movies, enjoying the night with your loving boyfriend.
