“what is up guys and welcome back to another video.”
to say that filming this video was going to be awkward, was an understatement. i was currently seated in the bedroom of my ex boyfriend, simon, filming one of the most awkward and uncomfortable videos to ever be filmed and put on the internet.
“today i’m here with a very special guest.” he stated before looking over at me.
“hi, its (y/n).” i introduced quietly.
the both of us paused awkwardly, letting the silence over take the atmosphere. the silence was broken but simon clearing his throat before he began to speak again.
“and today we’re making a video to clear the air and to just… reminisce about the past and yeah.”
i nodded along in agreement before taking over.
“so basically, we’re going to have a ‘lightening round’ in which i’m going to ask some questions in the space of one minute that he has to answer. and then were gonna hop under the cover, cuddle a little and reminisce the good old days.” i explained, anxiously twiddling my thumbs around each other.
as i took my phone out of my back pocket, i could feel simon glancing at me.
“are you sure you’re okay with this?” he asked, eyebrows raised.
i simply nodded in response, watching him take his own phone out. i brought up; the questions i had written down earlier, waiting for him to start the timer.
“right, so i have around 12 questions.” i said to the camera, “so lets see how many we manage to get through and how many you can get right.” i smiled, licking my lips before Simon started the timer.
“right, what was my favourite flavour of ice cream?”
“chocolate.” he asnwered confidently.
“okay, settle down with the cockiness.” i teased. “what was the name of the plush pup you bought for me for out 8 month anniversary?”
simon stopped to think for a moment before a blank expression drew acorss his face. he’d forgotten.
i scoffed slightly, cocking my eyebrow as i looked at him.
“it wasn’t even that long ago.” i said, tapping my phone impatiently.
he looked slightly guilty, never the less he answered incorrectly.
“nope, when’s my birthday.” i continued.
“oh thats an easy one. (y/b/d).”
the questions continued until the one minute timer went off, signalling to stop asking questions.
“well, to say the least you did shit.” i laughed, looking up at him before realising he was already smiling down at me. my breath hitched in my throat, quickly looking away and hopping up from the couch. i could feel the heat rushing to my cheeks, turning to look over at his bed.
simon picked up the tripod, fixing it to ange at him bed. i hopped onto his bed and slid under the covers, snuggling into the mattress. simon hit record before hopping in behind me and spooning.
“this was always our favourite position.” he whispered cheekily, causing me to gasp and turn my body a little bit to hit his shoulder.
simon took the lead this time, explaining that we were now going to look through old photos and talk about why we broke up.
“althought most of you already know why we broke up, for those of you that dont, we broke up due to some rumours and shit that was going on. and the both of our schedules weren’t matching so we called a quits.” he explained.
my heart sunk,i had almost forgotten why we had broken up. i can remember the day so clearly.
simon pulled up some photos on his tv screen, flicking through them with the remote.
“i remember that day!” i squealed, a large smile spread across my face. “that was the day you fake proposed to me just to get free desserts.” i laughed, his shortly following mine.
“and then later we got free movie vouchers as an ‘engagement gift.’“ he continued.
just as i looked up at him he looked down at me. his eyes flickered from mine to then my lips.
You’ve been studying really hard, you’ve just been putting your head down, trying to get your O.W.L.s, or whatever they’re called - and you know, getting house points, and then Dumbledore just goes: “Oh! By the way… um, I’ve got some extra points to give out. Five million points for Gryffindor!” at the end. What’s that about? I’d be pissed off.
