It's a Date (Grayson Dolan)
warning: sad in the beginning :( also some hateful comments
“Grayson I love you!” “Grayson marry me.” “Grayson please notice me!” “Grayson over here!“
The girls continued to scream things at my boyfriend and his twin brother Ethan. I guess I can expect that dating one half of the famous Dolan Twins. His fans weren’t exactly accepting either. I opened instagram and looked at the recent photo I posted a week ago.
I started to read all the comments underneath.
username: you’re so ugly
username 1: leave Grayson alone.
username 2: I love Grayson but why did he choose you?
username 3: I don’t ship this at all, sorry not sorry.
username 4: please go kys
username 5: you don’t deserve Grayson, you’re just using him for fame.
username 6: stop rubbing it in our faces bitch.
Not all the comments were horrible, but a majority of them were. They made me feel horrible about myself, telling me how much I didn’t deserve to be with Grayson. This was why I was currently at home watching the Teen Choice Awards instead of attending with him. All the hate was tearing us apart.
"perfect.” I said feeling a tear fall down my cheek.
Grayson and Ethan had just won choice male web star. I was happy for them, I really was but that meant they were about to get even more popular and with more popularity came more mean girls. I turned the tv off, curling up into a ball and letting out all the tears i’d been holding back. My phone started ringing, Grayson’s name appearing on the caller ID. I wiped the tears before answering.
“hey babe.” I said trying my best to sound happy.
Grayson knew me better than that though.
“were you crying?” He asked his voiced laced with concern.
“just really happy for you guys.” I said covering my hurt voice.
“thanks babe.” Grayson said thankfully dropping it.
Whenever Grayson and I talked about all the hate we always ended up fighting with each other.
“so after the show, how about I drop by and we can cuddle and watch a movie?” Grayson said.
I took a deep breath knowing very well I wasn’t prepared to see him tonight.
“Isn’t there some after party you famous people go to?” I said not meaning for it to sound as rude as it did.
“well yeah there are after parties but i’d rather spend time with my girlfriend, who doesn’t sound like she wants to spend time with me at all.” Grayson said his voice getting lower.
I could tell that he was mad, but so was I. I was mad that he knew about the hate and did nothing about it. What could he do though? These were his fans he worked hard to gain them and he didn’t want to lose them by telling them off.
“tonight isn’t a good night that’s all.” I said in between shaky breaths.
I could feel tears swirling in my eyes.
“you’re being ridiculous y/n.” Grayson huffed.
“I’m being ridiculous? Grayson I just don’t want to hang out tonight okay.” I said raising my voice a little bit now.
“I feel like we aren’t even together anymore. We don’t hang out much anymore and when we do, all we do is fight. I’m tired of it.” Grayson says slowly like he was afraid too.
His words broke my heart but I knew he was right.
“then maybe we shouldn’t be together.” I said letting the tears fall.
“don’t say that y/n.” Grayson said his voice cracking.
I knew that Grayson and I could not keep going on like this. I knew what I needed to do and it killed me. I loved Grayson. I loved him so much but I was hurting us both by staying with him.
“Grayson I love you so much, but we can’t keep going on like this. I need time, you need to focus on your videos it would be easier if I just stayed away. Goodbye Grayson.” I said hanging up before he could protest.
I knew this was the right thing to do. Or was it? I threw my phone across the room breaking down even more now. I got up and started trashing my room, letting out all the anger and frustration I’ve been holding back. My mom ran in taking me in her arms.
“it hurts so bad.” I told my mom crying in her arms.
“I know sweetheart I know.” My mom said stroking my hair.
I cried in her arms for about a good hour and a half. There was a knock on our door, breaking me from my crying. My mom ran downstairs and soon a somber looking Grayson was standing in my doorway.
“what are you doing here? Your supposed to be at the award show." I said standing up.
"I don’t care about some stupid award, I care about you.” Grayson said a tear falling down his cheek.
“Grayson.” I started but he quickly cut me off.
“no you’re going to let me talk now. You’re right it would be easier if you stayed away but I don’t want you too. I love you. Nothing you or anybody else says is going to change that. Tell me how to fix this.” Grayson said coming over.
He took my hands in his and made me look at him.
“I want to fix this.” Grayson begged.
I didn’t know if it could be fixed and that scared me more than anything.
“Grayson you can’t make your fans not hate me.” I said crying a little more.
Grayson took a deep breath and looked at me. Then he left. He just left me there. I sat back down on the floor continuing my cry. About two hours later my phone lit up telling me the Dolan Twins had posted a video. It was probably a thank you video but I couldn’t fight this urge to see him even if it was behind a computer screen. I clicked on the video it was simply titled "we need to talk”
“you should watch that.” A voice said from the doorway.
I looked up and Grayson was standing there with a tear stained face. I clicked play and the video started playing. It was Grayson and Ethan just sitting there. Grayson had a few tears rolling down his cheeks. Ethan starts talking.
“hey guys Grayson is a little upset right now and so am I. We love you guys more than anything and we will NEVER be able to thank you guys enough for all you have done for us but we need to talk.”
Grayson starts talking now.
“we can’t stay single forever guys and I was really happy with my girlfriend but the hate that some of you were sending her way caused her to pull away from our relationship. It hurts alot that my fans can’t love someone that I love. I want you guys to understand that we are against bullying and it isn’t okay for our fans to go against something we believe so strongly in. I just needed you guys to hear me out. If you did hate on her and are feeling guilty I’m sure she’d accept an apology. No matter what we will always love you guys but right now I need you guys to love and support me.”
The video ended just like that and I had tears in my eyes. I looked up at Grayson who was just standing there biting his lip nervously. I went on instagram and pulled up a random selfie.
I started to read all the comments.
username: you are so beautiful!
username1: we had no right to hate you I’m so sorry!
username2: please get back with Grayson you deserve him!
username3: I should have never said hurtful things to you. I guess I can’t really call myself a Dolan Twin fan if I was bullying you.
username4: I’m so happy for you I love you so much!
username5: I hope you can forgive us and go back with Grayson, he looks so sad without you ):
username6: we don’t deserve you, you’re such a goddess!
I couldn’t help the smile that spread to my cheeks. Grayson took a couple steps forward taking my phone out of my hands. I don’t look at him right away. He cups my cheek with his hand making me look at him.
“did I fix it?” He asks biting his lip again.
I don’t know how I got so incredibly lucky to have the sweetest boy on earth.
“well you fixed that issue, but.” I started holding in a laugh.
“but what? I will do anything.” Grayson says panicking.
“but my lips kind of hurt alittle bit, do you think you can fix that too?” I asked smirking.
Grayson leans down and gives me a long kiss. I wrap my arms around his neck pulling him closer if that was even possible. He pulls away and I see his beautiful smile again. He pulls out his phone taking a picture of us.
“what are you doing?” I asked him laughing.
“well I have to tell my fans that there apologies worked.” Grayson says laughing.
I kissed his cheek looking in his eyes.
“I really do love you Grayson and I’m sorry I ruined the Teen Choice Awards for you. I’m so proud of you guys though you deserve it.” I said feeling ashamed of myself.
“you didn’t ruin anything, but next time I’d like you to be my date.” He smiles cheekily.
“it’s a date then.” I said smiling.
