Dan moves into his new apartment for the dog park downstairs – little does he know that the town comes with more than just fluffy tails.  

AU where Phil has a dog and Dan almost doesn’t know if he likes the dog or the boy more.


The guy looks up from his kneeling position in the grass, and seeing Dan, smiles. The dog next to him, with her fluffy golden curl of a tail, wiggles her butt at him. Dan doesn’t think he’s ever seen a better sight.

That is, until he actually looks up into the owners face.

Oh no, he thinks, Oh, no, no.

Happy Place /CTH

“I want to tell you a story, guys. It talks about how a boy fell in love with the most beautiful woman on the entire earth. She was funny, intelligent and anything a man could ever want.
That woman, had a rough life until she met this boy, that made her see everything better and made her believe in love again when she fell for him.
The day they got married, everyone told him he was crazy to marry a woman with a 6 years old daughter and the only answer he could give them was “I am crazy in love with that woman, nothing will ever tear us apart” but he was wrong.
On the 7th year of marriage, she started being sick, she wouldn’t smile as much as she used to. Every doctor… Every doctor told her that there was nothing to do, she would die soon, it was true.
It took her four m-months before leaving her daughters and the man that loved her every single minute they had shared.
He didn’t know how to go on but he did, he had to be strong for his girls. Yeah, his girls, even if only one has his DNA, they are his girls.
Every night when he would kiss them goodnight hoping to be doing the right things for them, one day he only had to be a dad but the other he had to be a dad and a mom.
It wasn’t easy, he had to work a lot and he never wanted to leave them, but he had to. If it was for him, he would have brought them with him but he knew they needed an education. They lived at their grand parents house, miles away from him but they all knew that it was the best if their dad kept his job and never quit it, like he wanted to do many times.
I want to tell you a story of how hard was for this dad to stay away from his girls, how hard it was to be there for them even if he was on the other side of the planet.
I want to tell you how hard it was for me, to wake up every morning to an empty bed, going in the kitchen and making breakfast to the two girls that I love the most, blueberries pancakes for Charlotte and strawberries pancakes for Beatrice.
I want to tell you how hard it was for me, helping them in things I had to learn, like tying their hair because that was something she would do.
I want to tell you how hard it was for me leaving them for tours, how many times my heart broke seeing their eyes full of tears because I was leaving.
I want to tell you how exhausted I was for staying awake till 4 am so I could give them the good mornings and the good nights and then waking up at 7 for interviews.
I want to tell you how hard it was for me, hiding this all from you.
How hard, sometimes it still is, after 7 years, is to breathe because there’s a hollow in my chest that reminds me everyday that I have to me a good parent, never forgetting Mr. Plush’s birthday or the fish’s.
I want to tell you how good my life is when I have them in my arms, when I kiss them goodnight and make them breakfast, even if I burn their breakfasts. Their laughter makes me feel so full of love that fill the empty spot she left.
It’s been 5 years since she left and today, I want to say that, yes, she might have left us and but I know, I did a great job with my girls. Every sleepless night, every hug we shared before I left for tour were worth making me a better man and a better parent.
And today, I want you to know that my girl is turning 18 and I couldn’t be more proud of how a strong woman she is, of how beautiful, intelligent, caring of woman she is.
She made me so proud every time she took care of her sister, every time she took care of me even if I was far, I’m proud of how much strength she gave me whenever I needed.
I want to tell you how, honestly sad I am today, that I can’t be there with her, celebrating her 18th birthday.
I want to tell you how much I love my daughters and how much I do for you instead of spending those special days with them and today I had to get this all off my chest”

Calum couldn’t keep going, he was fully sobbing now. He wanted to have his girls in his arms and tell them he loved them so much but he was somewhere in the US and they were in Australia.

No one dared to speak. Maybe because they just found out that Calum got married and was a dad or maybe, because the man they usually saw strong, looked so fragile.

Luke was the first one to walk up to Calum, he held him close for a bit and then showed him the crowd.
Calum didn’t know why Luke was doing so, but he followed his gaze over the place Luke was pointing.

There, in the audience, he recognize the faces of the girls that made him happy, the girls that he thought were in Australia.

He froze in his spot, he thought he was dreaming since he had many times this kind of dream, but it felt so real this time.

He kept his eyes on the 18 and 8 years old girls that Dave, the bodyguard, was leading to the stage.

Calum really didn’t know what to do, how to move. He felt like he forgot how to walk or even breath.

Luke pushed him forward to his girls once they were on stage.

When Calum brought his girls in his arms, he felt happiness boiling inside him. He was crying and kissing the heads of the girls he thought he would only see through a screen for other three months.

“Daddy, I love you so much” Charlotte, the eldest, said crying into his shoulder

Charlotte called him ‘Daddy’ many times before but in that moment, Calum felt the most happiest man on the planet.

“I love you so much baby girls.” He said after giving both of them the one hundredth kiss.

Calum never thought something like this would happen.
But it did happen and he was so happy about it that he had to sit for 10 minutes to calm down over the happiness of the moment but never letting them go of his arms.

They were his happy place and nothing could ever change that.
