“Um Ethan. You might want to see this…” Aaron said, showing me something on Twitter.
It was Y/N and Grayson. Together.
* * * *
Aaron showed me a picture of Y/N and Grayson. They were together at Disney World. I guess fans thought it was me, because I was going through my Twitter, and saw that I was getting tagged in a bunch of them.
@EthanDolan and @YourTwitterName are literally goals af! #YouandEthanShipname
@EthanDolan took @YourTwitterName to Disney World. My mom can’t even get my dad to take out the trash! #YouandEthanShipname
@YourTwitterName & @EthanDolan looks so happy! #YouandEthanShipname
After a few of the same pictures, one picture caught my attention.
It was a picture of them. Y/N was wearing a pair of glittery Minnie Mouse ears, cheesing like a 5 year old eating on some cotton candy. Grayson was standing behind her with his hands placed on her hips, while he was kissing Y/N on the cheek.
When did @EthanDolan get highlights? But him & @YourTwitterName are still cute. #YouandEthanShipname
I didn’t get highlights. That wasn’t me. That was my twin brother Grayson. With my girlfriend! I guess Grayson thought if he wore his Ray Bans, and threw on a snapback people wouldn’t recognize him.
How could he do this? How could Y/N do this?
These pictures were taken today, meaning he was with her last night when I was FaceTiming her. Was that why she was acting so weird? Did they sleep in the same bed? Are they sleeping together? Y/N and I haven’t even done anything more than make out. Every time I tried to touch her or make a move, she would just pull away, or tell me she would want to take things slow. I obviously had no problem with that. But I couldn’t help but wonder if my girlfriend has been touched by someone else. By my own twin brother. A mixture of betrayal, and anger flooded through me the more I stood there thinking about this.
“Yo E, you good bro?” Aaron asked, pull me from my thoughts.
“Yeah, I’m good. I’m going to head home. Talk to you later bro.” I said before dapping him up.
I got in the car, and started to drive back to the apartment. As I was driving all these things started coming to mind. Like how Y/N been acting really weird lately. Like when we were out getting ice cream, she seemed off. She said she was sick, but I’m thinking maybe she wasn’t. Grayson’s been acting weird too. Like how he randomly asked where she was that night when I came back from dropping her off at her place after our ice cream date. Then he left that night, and never came back, and when he did he packed a dufflebag, and his Gucci backpack. For fuck sake, I took them to the fucking airport together!
I pulled up to my apartment, but I didn’t get out. I was driving myself crazy with all these thoughts. What if she’s been cheating on me with Grayson this whole time? Is that why she doesn’t want to tell me she loves me? Is it because she loves him? I punched my steering wheel, furious at the thought of this whole situation. This was so fucked up. I took my phone off the aux, and went to call Y/N. After hitting the phone button, I quickly pressed the end button. I wasn’t going to tell her anything. I had a better idea.
I opened up my Twitter app, and found Tana’s page. I clicked on her message button, quickly typing up a DM.
EthanDolan: Yo. I need to talk to you. Call me. 310-657-1521
I closed out of the app, and locked my phone. I pressed the start button on my car, cutting off the engine, before getting out to head up to my apartment.
I had just walked inside, when my phone started ringing. It was unfamiliar number. Thinking it could’ve been Tana, so I answered.
“Hello?” I asked.
“Hey, it’s Tana. You wanted to talk to me?” she said, on the other end of the phone.
“Yeah I-” I was started to speak but she cut me off.
“Does this have anything to do with how Grayson and Y/N were at Disney World all hugged up?” she asked,
“How did you know that was Grayson?” I asked a little confused. I mean apparently nobody else was able to figure out that it wasn’t me.
“I fucked your brother enough to be able to tell you two apart just by looking at a picture.” she said, laughing on the other end.
I started by telling Tana about how I thought she was suppose to be in New York with Grayson, because well that’s what he told me. According to Tana they haven’t even spoke to each other since he broke up with her. I explained to her pretty much the whole situation. She was pretty amused by the whole thing. We talked a little more, and came up with a plan.
Looks like Tana and I are heading to Playlist Live Orlando.
* * * *
Grayson and I were at Disney World, having the best time. We met all the princesses, rode on almost every ride, and we ate a shit ton! I was glad that their weren’t many fans here. Probably because the were all at Universal Studios waiting to meet the performers. I mean we saw some outside when we were coming in, but I guess no one noticed that it was Grayson because everyone was shouting Ethan’s name. He had his hair pushed back into his snapback, and some Ray Bans on so people couldn’t see his face. We held hands, snuck in a few kisses here and there, it honestly was the perfect day.
Of course I feel bad. I feel like complete trash. But I was really enjoying my time with Grayson. The feeling I feel when I’m with Grayson is a completely different feeling from when I’m with Ethan. Yes Ethan makes me happy, but as wrong and fucked up as this situation is, being with Grayson feels right. I probably should break up with Ethan. In fact I’ve been thinking about it, because he doesn’t deserve this. But what am I suppose to say without crushing his heart?
God I’m a horrible person.
The park started to get a little crowded so we decided to leave. Plus I needed to go see some people over at Playlist, to go over the schedule for tomorrow.
The uber pulled up in front of the hotel, and I cursed under my breath at the site of fans all over the front door, and inside the lobby of the hotel. Grayson heard me, and looked up to look out the window.
“Shit!” he cursed.
“Do we just run inside or wha-” he started talking but I cut him off.
“We can’t go out there together Gray!” I said, throwing my head back in my seat.
“You might pulled it off at the Disney, but I doubt you can fool this many fans!”
We decided that I would go out by myself, and he would have the driver drive around to the back, and he can enter the back entrance of the hotel. I got out the car, and closed the door. Fans started running up to me, with their phones out snapping pictures, and recording videos.
“Where’s Ethan?” a fan asked, holding out her iPhone to take a picture.
“Oh. He had to go do something.” I replied, as I bent down to take a picture with her.
I said hi to a few fans, and took a few more pictures. If I could stay and talk to every single one of them I could, they honestly were all so sweet! As I was walking up the stairs of the front door, I heard a fan scream something.
“The pictures of you and Ethan, were so cute!”
Pictures? Fuck there’s pictures! What pictures?
I walked back down towards the fan, and asked her what pictures she was talking about. She opened up Twitter, and showed me a few pictures of Grayson and I at Disney. Some of them were just of us standing there at the ticket booth. Okay that’s not bad. But than she showed me another picture and my heart stopped. It was a picture of us standing by the ferris wheel. I was smiling eating my cotton candy, and Grayson was standing behind me with his hands placed on my hips, kissing me on the cheek. Fuck!
I gave her a hug, and went into the hotel. The security held back the fans inside the lobby, so I had a clear path to the elevator. I blew kisses to everyone, and walked into the elevator. After pressing number 5 on the keypad, I pulled out my phone and opened my Twitter app. My mentions were filled with those pictures. Everyone was tagging Ethan in the pictures. Wow people really did think Grayson was Ethan. I couldn’t help but wonder if Ethan saw these already. I went on his Twitter, but he hasn’t tweeted anything since the other night. I looked through his likes to see if he had liked anything, he hasn’t. But than again, if he did see those pictures, why would he like them? A loud ding, broke me out of my thoughts, and the elevator door opened.
I stepped out of the elevator, and walked to my room. I used the key card to open the door, and Grayson was laying on the bed scrolling through his phone.
“We have a problem!” I said, shutting the door behind me.
“What happened?” Grayson asked, sitting up on the end of the bed looking concerned.
“Have you been on Twitter today?” I asked, walking over and standing in front of him.
“No. I haven’t been on my phone all day.” he said, pulling me into his lap, and placing a kiss on my temple.
“Why babe?” he asked, tucking some of the hair that fell over behind my ear.
I pulled up the pictures on my phone to show Grayson.
“These are all over Twitter.”
“Everyone is tagging Ethan in it.” I said, giving Grayson the phone.
“Why would they tag Ethan?” Grayson asked, confused.
He’s joking right?
“BECAUSE THEY THINK IT’S HIM YOU IDIOT!” I screamed snatching my phone back, a little annoyed.
I tried to get off Grayson’s lap, but his strong muscular arms pulled me back down. Keeping them wrapped around me.
“Do you think Ethan saw the pictures?” I asked, meeting my eyes with Grayson’s soft hazel ones.
“I don’t think so. I mean I’m sure he would’ve called me if he did.” he said.
“But what if he does Gray! What do we say? I don’t want him to find out this way. I need to tell him. I’m going to go call him.” I said, removing myself from Grayson’s lap.
“No.” Grayson said, grabbing my arm.
“We’ll talk to him when we get back. You don’t need anything to stress you out. It’s your first time at Playlist.” he said, pulling me towards him. My back against him.
“Let’s just enjoy it.”
“Together.” he says as he places kisses down my neck.
I guess Grayson he was right. I guess it makes more sense if we talked to Ethan together. A part of me still wanted to talk to him first, but I didn’t want to stress myself out, and then have the fans pick up on the negative vibe. We decided that when we get back, we were going to tell Ethan everything. Let’s just hope that happens before he sees the pictures.
I was able to book Tana and I a flight to Orlando for this afternoon. Our flight leaves at 2:30 so we would probably get there around 7:00 or 7:30.
I finished packing my bags, and sat down in the living room waiting for the Uber. As I was waiting I was on Twitter, seeing if there was any new pictures of Y/N and Grayson. I kept scrolling past a few tweets say how good I looked today in a snapback and sunglasses. Yeah, too bad it wasn’t me! I scrolled some more and saw a picture of Y/N. It was just her. She was in front of the hotel taking pictures with fans. Anger ran though my body, thinking about how her and Grayson have been lying to me this whole time. If they wanted to be together they could’ve just told me.
My phone notification went off, letting me know my Uber was downstairs. I threw my back pack over my shoulder, grabbed my duffel bag and started heading down to the car.
When I got in the car I texted Tana, letting her know that I was in the Uber, and we were on the way, to get her. The whole point of going to Orlando, is to basically call them both out on their shit. No not right away. I’m going to play it cool act like I don’t know anything, and that I’m just there to see Y/N and hang out at Playlist.
Grayson said he was in New York with Tana, because they got back together. But knowing Grayson, he would just come up with another lie to cover up that lie. So that’s why I invited Tana. So Grayson wouldn’t be able to lie. I mean how can he when Tana is in his face. As far as it goes for Y/N. Hopefully she tells me herself that way I don’t have to bring it up. I honestly don’t want to. I don’t even know how I’m still so calm about this. Yes half of me wants to kill Grayson, but I don’t know maybe we can fix all of this before anyone else gets hurt. Or in my case more hurt.
* * * *
Tana and I made it out the airport pretty easy. There weren’t any fans hanging out inside or outside. I guess their were either all that the hotel or Universal Studios waiting to meet all the performers.
We got into the Uber, and began heading towards the hotel. The closer we got, the more anxious I was feeling. I don’t know what I’m going to say to Y/N. I mean I know I said I would play it cool like I don’t know anything. But what if I can’t. What if I get so angry that I just snap? I was so caught up in my thoughts that I didn’t realize we were here.
Tana’s said, shaking my shoulder trying to get my attention.
“We’re here.” she nodded her head at the window.
I look out and the front of the hotel was crowded with fans. I couldn’t let them see me. If they see me than the pictures would end up on Twitter, and I didn’t want Y/N to know I was here yet, and I didn’t want her to know Tana was here either. If I want my plan to work, than they needed to think I’m Grayson. I grabbed my beanie out of my duffel bag. I put on the beanie, and quickly pulled the hood from my hoodie over my head, pulling it over my face a little. Tana got out of the car first, with me following behind. The security came outside and helped us through the crowd. The whole time walking to the door of the hotel, I kept hearing everyone yelling Grayson’s name. Do we really look that much alike? Jesus.
Once we got into the hotel, Tana got her room, and went upstairs. I pulled off my hood, and my beanie and walked over to the reception desk.
“Hey, I’m Ethan Dolan, Y/N Y/L/N boyfriend. I don’t know if you remember us or not. But I forgot our room number, and she’s out going over her schedule for the Playlist live performance tomorrow, so I can’t call her or anything. So are you able to give me the room number?” I asked the lady. She looked at me and laugh before she started typing on her keyboard.
“I remember you guys. My daughter took a picture with you guys the first day you guys came. Remember?” she said, her eyes on her computer monitor.
“Oh. Yeah, sorry. It’s been a long couple days I-” I said before she cut me off.
“Oh no your fine. I understand. Now did you want a key card or just the room number.” she asked.
Without even thinking about it, I asked for the key card. She handed it over to me, and I thanked her before heading over towards the elevator. I looked at the card and the room number was 5044. I clicked the number 5 on the elevator key pad, and waited for my stop.
The elevator dinged. The elevator doors opened, and I walked out onto the fifth floor. Tana was also on the fifth floor but I think her room is down the other side of the hall.
“5037… 5038… 5039… 5040 …” I counted the hotel room numbers in my head, as I walked passed them.
“5043… 5044…” I stopped right in front of the hotel door. I held the key card up to the slot, but I didn’t slide it through. What if their in there together? What if I open the door to something I don’t want to see.
I had just woken up from probably the best nap I’ve ever had. These hotel mattresses are the most comfortable things ever. I lifted Grayson’s hand from my waist, so I could reach the night stand for my phone. Immediately feeling his hand back on my waist and pulling me back towards him.
“Stay.” Grayson said, in his raspy sleepy voice.
“I’m not going anywhere. I was just trying to check my phone.” I said, making him pull me in tighter.
“You don’t need it.” he said, planting soft kisses down my neck, and down to my shoulders.
He removed his hand from my waist, and cuffed my cheek, lifting my face up to meet his. He licked his lips, and connected them with mine. I felt the tip of his tongue tracing over my bottom lip. I parted my lips, and our kiss deepen.
We were in the middle of a pretty heated make out session when there was a knock on the door.
“Ignore it! Maybe they’ll go away.” Grayson said, pressing his lips back on mine, kissing me again.
“You have no patience do you?” I chuckled, as I pushed myself off of him. I got out the bed, and walked over to the door. I peek through the peek hole checking to see who it was before opening the door.
When I saw who it was, my stomach turned. It was Ethan.
I knocked on the door.
“Surprise!” I cheered, wrapping my arms tight around her.
My eyes roamed the room. Both sides of the bed were messy. The pillows weren’t fluffed, and the sheets were wrinkled. Letting me know someone else was in that bed with her. Someone as in Grayson.
“Ethan! What are you doing here?” she asked wrapping her arms around my neck.
“I got bored back home, so I decided I’d check out Playlist this year. And because I miss you.” I said, kissing the top of her forehead. I would kiss her on the lips, but to be honest I have no idea where they’ve been.
“I missed you too E.” she lied. She didn’t miss me. She had Grayson with her keeping her company. She has barely texted me since she’s been here.
I walked inside the room, and the strong, familiar scent of cologne hit my nose. Grayson and I wear the same cologne for crying out loud, so of course I knew what it was. I needed to play it cool. So I walked over to the bed, and I noticed something on the chair by the balcony. It was Grayson’s Gucci back pack. I could feel my blood boiling at this point. He’s in here. Where the fuck was he?
“Grayson’s here?” I asked, pulling Y/N down onto my lap. Waiting for her to lie.
“Uh yeah! He got here like an hour ago. He thought you were with me for some reason. But you weren’t… So… He said he’d drop his stuff off here, so he could go get a room. Then come back to get it.” she lied. Wow I never knew what a good liar Y/N was until now. Because that was almost convincing. Too bad I already know what’s been going on. But I’ll play along.
“That’s weird. I told him I wasn’t coming here with you, so I wonder why he thought that. And I wonder if Tana’s here if since he’s here.” I said, pretending to sound confused.
“Tana?!” Y/N asked, a little pissed. Clearly Tana’s name set off something inside of her.
“I mean why would… Why would Tana be here?” she asked again. This time a little calmer.
“Well Grayson told me they got back together, and that he was going to New York to see her. That’s why I dropped you guys off at the airport together.” I said, my eyes on her the whole time.
She didn’t say anything, she looked at me and smiled at me. I gave her a quick kiss, and told her I was going to go and try to “find” Grayson, so we could room together. I told her I would let her have the room together, because I didn’t want to cause any “distractions”. I left Y/N’s room, and went down to the lobby to get a room.
As soon as Ethan left, I closed and locked the door behind me. I went to the balcony where Grayson was hiding, and told him to come inside.
“Tana? Really? You were going to New York with Tana?” I asked, crossing my arms. I knew it was a lie Grayson made up, but still why did he have to use her?
“It was the only thing I could think of to say, so Ethan wouldn’t question me.” he said, placing his hands on the small of my back.
“Obviously I’ve been here with you the whole time!” he said, tilting my chin up giving me a kiss. It felt kind of weird. I was making out with Grayson, than his brother also known as my boyfriend, comes I kiss him, and now I’m kissing Grayson again. I felt so disgusting right now.
“Well he saw your back pack, and asked if you were here…”
“I told him you just got here, and that you were looking for him. But he wasn’t here so you went to go get a room. Soooo you better put on a shirt, and go downstairs, and act like you were getting a room or something.” I said, but Grayson moved his hands down on my butt, pushing me into him.
“Since he’s here he’s probably gonna try to spend time with you. Meaning we can’t spend time together.” he said, before kissing my cheek, and planting soft kisses by my ear.
“I’m not ready to give you back yet.” he whispered softly into my ear. Giving it a little nibble.
He placed a finger under my chin tilting it up. Our lips connected, and I could feel his wet lips melt onto mine. My hands on his chest, and he slide his tongue on my lips, and I gave him full entry to my mouth. My hands slipped around his neck, as I felt his tongue meeting mine. His hands moved to my hips, guiding my backwards to the bed. Him hovering over on top of me. With one elbow on the bed beside my head, as he kept his body over mine. Our kisses became faster, and sloppier, but still pleasurable. His free hand squeezed my hips, as he was kissing and sucking my neck at the same time. Light moans started escaping from my mouth, and I felt Grayson smiling as he was devouring my neck.
“Are you going to answer it?” I asked, trying to push myself up with my elbows.
“No… I’ll… Call… Them… Later” he said, while he was planting kisses over the throbbing part of my neck. I swear to god if he leaves a hickey!
“What if it’s Ethan.” I said, knowing that would get Grayson to stop and check his phone.
“Fuck!” Grayson, groaned. I was right, it was Ethan. Grayson was pissed. He ran his hand through his hair, and sat down on the bed, before calling back his brother.
“Yeah, I got here about an hour ago or so…”
“Yeah, meet me in the lobby.” he says before hanging up the phone.
“I gotta meet Ethan in the lobby. I guess I’m getting a new roomate.” he said, grabbing his back pack, and duffel bag.
“Talk to you later?” he asked, giving me a kiss on the cheek. I nodded and opened the door for him.
“I love you.” he said, and gave me a quick peck on the lips before leaving the room.
I shut the door behind me, and threw myself on the bed. What the hell is going on? I’m cheating on my boyfriend with his twin brother, and now he’s here. I wanted to talk to Ethan, I knew I had too. But Grayson and I agreed to wait till we got back. I’m starting to think waiting isn’t a good idea. Ethan’s here. What if he ends up seeing the picture? Or what if fans say something about the picture? Fuck. What do I do? How did things get so messy? It’s like one big twisted love triangle. Like we’re all twisted in love.
* * * *
I woke up to my phone ringing beside me. I didn’t even remember falling asleep. I checked my caller ID, and it was Grayson.
“Hello?” I said, still half asleep.
“So Ethan’s sleeping, so I’ll be at your room in a sec. We’re like down the hall.” he spoke lowly on the other end. His voice sounded a little weird, but I’m guessing he was whispering since he was still in the room, and didn’t want to wake Ethan up. Unlike Grayson, Ethan wasn’t really a heavy sleeper.
“I’m too lazy to get out of bed, so use your room key.” I said before hanging up. I hung up the phone, and checked the time. It was 2:00 in the morning. Jeez how long did I nap for? I remember Grayson leaving to go meet Ethan, and next thing I know it’s 2:00 in the morning. I noticed I had a few messages, so i decided to check them. A few of them were from Grayson, and a few were from Ethan.
Ethan: Babe, we got our room. It’s down the hall from yours ;)
Ethan: Are you sleeping?
Grayson: I miss you already. Ethan’s being annoying.
Grayson: We got out room. But I’ll come by tonight, when Ethan falls asleep.
Grayson: Can’t wait till this is over, and you can finally be mine.
Grayson: Well you are mine, just not in the right circumstances.
Grayson: I love you.
I locked my phone, plugged it on the charger, and placed it on the night stand. All of this was making my head hurt. I’m tried of lying, and sneaking around behind Ethan’s back. I’m going to talk to Grayson when he gets here, and tell him that I’m going to talk to Ethan tomorrow in the morning. Because this isn’t right. It was never right to begin with. But he deserves the truth, as much as its going to hurt I needed to tell him.
