What started out as a recording session for a new doodle, would turn out to be the start of something else…
Note: Sorry if it’s not the best, just wanted to write this because it was a cute little idea I had thanks to the Tadzie tag. Enjoy!
As Adele fixed her hair in the mirror, she couldn’t believe she was less than an hour away from her date with Toby! Well, at least she was calling it a date. She was making a doodle of him, and she needed him and his voice. She had moved to California soon after going home from Vidcon.
She stepped back and admired herself in her “Everyday I’m Doodlin’” shirt, red jacket, black skirt and tights. The same outfit she had worn when he had recognized her at Vidcon, the same outfit she wore when they started their friendship, and maybe… their relationship?
Her heart skipped a beat as the doorbell rang, and she hopped down the stairs and threw on her shoes.
“Hey, you look great. You ready to go?” Toby smiled, standing in the doorway of her apartment.
“Yep.” She smiled back.
“Oh wait!” She ran inside to grab her tablet. “Can’t believe I almost forgot this.” She awkwardly laughed. Goddamn nerves…
It was a silent ride to Toby’s house, but her thoughts were screaming at her. What’s going to happen today? Is Toby going to try something? God, she wished her thoughts would just shut up.
“Alright! Let’s go make a doodle! Wheew!” She had tuned in at the right time, and smiled at his enthusiasm.
A few hours later, they were done recording and had some fun during the process. A question had come to her mind during it. Well, originally when she saw the Tadzie comments on his Vidcon video, but it was back, and now she had the courage to ask.
“Toby…” She murmured while closing her first sketch of how the doodle would go.
“Yeah Adzi- uh, Adele?” He answered. She wasn’t sure whether to be sad he was almost going to call her Adzie, or happy that he corrected himself.
“Do you… do you know about Tadzie?” She asked nervously. She had to know if he knew about what she daydreamed of a few times a day.
“Tadzie? What’s that?” He raised a brow.
“It’s… the ship between us. Toby and Adzie.” She answered with a hint of disappointment that he didn’t know…
About what we have… what’s obviously going to happen… She brushed away her hopeful thoughts.
“Look, I’ll show you.” She sighed, walking to Toby’s computer and logging into her Tumblr. She typed #Tadzie into the search bar, and looked to see Toby standing next to her.
“What should I be expecting…?” He stopped when he saw the many drawings, fanfics, and posts about them. Or rather, them being together.
“Oh… oh wow.” Toby mumbled in shock of what was on the screen before him.
“Yeah. It’s really grown since I moved here…”
“You mean… you looked at this before?”
“Yeah…” She wasn’t sure how to feel. Suddenly, Toby started laughing. A lot. So Adele started laughing too.
“So, this is a thing that people spend their time creating art and stories for and look at other’s creations?” Toby said through a laugh.
“Yeah.” He laughed harder when he heard her answer. He fell over into her lap, making Adele blush.
Oh senpai… you really are too cute. She whispered to herself.
Toby stopped laughing.
“…What? What did you just…?” He stood up and stared directly into her eyes. It didn’t feel like she had ever expected, nor wanted it to.
“Toby, let me-” He reached down to her face, rubbing her cheek with his thumb.
“Look at you… you’re blushing.” He smiled, and kissed her forehead.
“T-Toby…” He made his way to her cheek, cupping her chin, then kissing both. Left then right.
“Shhh…” He whispered, making his way to her lips, tauntingly slow, leading up to their gentle first kiss.
