REQUEST 126 ~ Love story
This is a female reader, i apologise in advance if that makes it harder to enjoy, i will try and work on making them gender neutral.
Anything in italic is a flashback
Tuesday, the one night of the week i spend chatting about the events of the world and the ones in my life. It’s always enjoyable to do as i get to feel closer to my audience.
“Oh my god, is it true you have a girlfriend? asks someone in the chat, sorry i didn’t catch your user. I’m guessing you saw the photo that someone took.”
Earlier in the week the photo had been causing a shit storm on social media. It was shared by almost every account linked to the phandom, each with a different reaction.
“From that reaction i’ll say you have. Ok to answer your question, yes i do have a girlfriend. in fact it was the girl whose hand i was holding in the photo.” I smiled and leaned back in my chair.
Y/n, i hadn’t introduced her officially to the audience. We were oping to keep our relationship away from the public eye but i guess people are just too intrusive sometimes. However i guess there is no better time to reveal this.
“How long have you been together?” I read out, picking one of the few questions that was appropriate to answer.
“Oh, umm, i think it’s been a few months now. 10 maybe?” The chat went insane once again, mostly over how i managed to keep a secret relationship for that long.
It definitely wasn’t the easiest thing to do, what with London being a big tourist attraction and viewers almost everywhere, but y/n understood, she made sure that when we were out together p.d.a was at a minimum. Even though she never shows it, i can’t help but feel it makes her upset having to pretend that nothing is between us.
I glance back in the chat to find more questions, “How did you meet?” i smiled fondly as i remembered that day.
“Well, i actually met y/n through a friend of mine and Phil’s. At first i honestly didn’t think much of her seeing as i hardly spoke to her all evening, but after a while things just clicked.” I smiled down into my lap thinking about how nervous i got when it came to asking her out.
She sat across from me, taking sips from her drink. The bright lights of the restaurant where we had gathered amongst friends illuminated her face. She was mesmerising. The first time i had seen her she didn’t capture my eyes as much as now, but that was probably due to my lack of observation.
“We’re just going over to the bar, we’ll be back in a minute.” Someone announced and walked away whilst being followed by everyone else at the table.
I looked back and saw y/n still sitting there. “You not going?” i asked.
She shook her head, “Nah, means having to get up and walk, and i’m way too comfortable. Plus don’t want to leave you on your own, unless you want that then i’ll go.” She started to move but i stopped her.
“No, no it’s ok, i feel the same, walking is just not my favourite activity.” She giggled and smiled at me.
I couldn’t control my own smile. “So Dan, we haven’t spent much time together.”
“We haven’t. We should though. You do seem very nice.”
“As do you. Sometime soon, when other people aren’t here.”
I nodded and looked to see the group returning. “It’s a date.”
“Honestly after i said that i thought she would have corrected me but she didn’t. Even after we met up again she didn’t say anything about it not being a date. In fact she has told me that she did class it as one.”
The door downstairs closed, reminding me that y/n was coming to stay over this evening.
“One more question guys before i go. Are you happy with y/n?”
I looked away and towards my phone, which displayed a picture of the both of us in an embrace.
“Yes, i am. She honestly is one of the most incredible people i have met, she’s kind, caring and very passionate about a lot of things. Y/n makes each day feel like it’s worth living just so i can see her and be in her presence. I know i sound cheesy but it is the truth. I hope that she stays in my life for a long time. Ok now i’m done, see you next week!” I closed of the live show and sat back in my chair.
Upon reflection i should have kept the issue quiet until i had discussed it with y/n but i’m glad they know just how much she means to me.
I stood and headed in her direction to find her, she was stood chatting with Phil about something i couldn’t quite catch on to but once she saw me her smile grew. I pulled her into a cuddle and thanked who ever controls fate that i met her.
