i’ve been thinking about the whole “I’ll see you in 25 years” and how that version of laura who said it knew Cooper would go back in time and try to save her and that’s why she said it, almost like he has done it before and time is in a loop and it happens every 25 years. In the black lodge laura is screaming because no matter how much Cooper tried to save her its always going to happen and not only does it still happen but it keeps on happening.
A/N half inspired by Justin Bieber’s new song Friends :)
“And we’ll see you guys on Tuesday” played the penultimate ending of this weeks video followed by the echo of the outro tune and bloopers.
“So you edited that completely on your own without the assistance of Grayson?”
“Yep Gray free! Thank you little one! I’m quite proud of it, we usually do half and half when editing our content because we’re both better at different things than the other.” Little one was a nickname Ethan had called me for as long as I could remember, because he and Grayson were significantly larger than I was, thus the name catching on.
“Do you know if him and Cam arrived safe?” Grayson and the twin’s older sister Cameron had gone to a concert together that was a few hours away from LA. Cameron had received the tickets for her birthday and Grayson was more than interested in going with her so they booked a hotel to stay overnight after the concert.
“Yeah he just texted, they got there over an hour ago, I don’t know how they are going to survive without me, considering I am the brains of the family” Ethan said with a big grin on his face which I could only reply with a giggle.
“Yeah yeah you keep thinking that E” I stifled a laugh.
Ethan’s expression changed and his mouth dropped as he pretended to be shocked by my previous comment, he then clutched his heart as if I’d ripped it out of his chest.
“Y/N! How dare you insult me like that, I think you should apologise”
“I don’t think I need to apologise” I hummed.
“Then I think you better start running” he stated calmly.
It took my brain a few seconds to process what Ethan had just said. Until he suddenly moved towards me, my eyes widened, I jumped to my feet and I began running out of the room. I managed to escape Ethan dodging him around the apartment. Eventually I ran into his room, unfortunately Ethan had followed me in and he was stood in the door way meaning I had no escape.
“Oh dear y/n, it looks like you can’t escape me” Ethan smirked slyly.
I scrunched up my eyes accepting my worst fate, only for nothing to happen. I felt a presence closer to me so I peaked through my right eye to see Ethan stood a mere few centimetres in front of me.
Ethan winked at me which baffled me at first until the next thing I knew he was scooping me up and dropped me in the middle of his bed. He swiftly climbed on top of me and placed his knees either side of my hips so he was straddling me and so that I was trapped beneath him.
He leaned down, pressed his lips to my ear and whispered “there’s no escaping me now little one”.
I had to admit that mine and Ethan’s relationship had always been rather complicated, we were best friends but I always felt like it could be more but am unsure whether he would like to progress it further or keep the friendship intact. It was apparent to our other friends and even family that we were always flirting and many of them even ‘shipped’ us, which obviously he found weird.
I felt my cheeks begin to heat up as Ethan still remained close to my face, I had become rather flustered as him pinning me down like this portrayed Ethan’s dominant male side, which obviously turned me on.
Unexpectedly I felt fingertips tickle my body, this was when I knew exactly what Ethan’s plan was. I was defenceless against the powers of tickling.
“Ethan please s-s-stop” I managed to stutter out whilst he continued to tickle me, showing no mercy.
“Make me” he replied in a deeper voice than his typical one.
“Maybe I will” I decided to throw back to make it look like this was fighting talk and hell did I want to win.
He had leaned in closer to my face now and our foreheads were practically touching, I looked up into his chocolate eyes and then I realised that the tickling had come to a halt.
Ethan suddenly pulled away leaving me slightly fluttered and a bit confused in what had just happened.
“E-E are you okay? What just happened?”
“Nothing happened y/n, it’s fine, I’m fine”
He fidgeted with his hands and moved to the other side of his bed sitting away from me.
I took it upon myself to figure out what had just happened between us to make him act so weird so I sat up, slid myself across the bed to sit next to him and took his hand in mine.
“We’ve been best friends for years now, you know you can tell me anything, I’m a great listener I’ll have you know” I said whilst poking his sides with my fingers.
I saw him stifle a giggle but I knew something was still wrong, his body language was ridged and stiff. The both of us remained in silence for a while, I didn’t force him to tell me anything because he didn’t have to. I was about to change the subject to watching a film when Ethan suddenly spoke up.
“Y/n” was all that came out of his mouth as he turned his body to face me, he offered me a soft smile which I returned instantly. His smile was something I would never get used to, it would just offer so much warmth and happiness.
Ethan’s hands found my cheeks, so my face was cupped between them. He leaned in close until our foreheads were touching resting against each other.
“Can we still be friends if…” he began, I could feel the warmth of his breathing on my skin.
“If what Ethan?” I questioned in a mere whisper.
“I-if I kissed you y/n”
A thousands thoughts suddenly hit my mind as I tried to process the words that just escaped his mouth. Yes I wanted to be with Ethan and yes I wanted to kiss him, but I didn’t want to jeopardise our friendship that we had had for so many years.
“I don’t know Ethan, I mean I want to, but I don’t want to and I don’t want to jeopa-”
“Y/n. Can we still be friends if I kissed you?”
“No” I answered finally not sure if I’d made the right decision.
“Fuck it” was all he said before his lips were making contact with mine.
The kiss was gentle but passionate at the same time; our movements were slow but the kiss remained very heated. I didn’t want it to stop, his kiss was like a drug and I was addicted to it. Ethan was first to pull away to come up for air, his breath was heavy and his lips were slightly swollen and pink, which meant I probably looked even worse than usual.
“Why didn’t you pull away? I thought you said we couldn’t be friends if I did that” his voice still struggling for some oxygen.
“Yes but what I didn’t say before I was pleasantly interrupted is that we could be more than friends…” I whispered whilst my thumb traced over my tingling bottom lip.
Ethan placed a few chaste kisses on my lips and pulled away leaving me pouting.
“I think I could agree to that” he smiled whilst running his hand through his long locks.
“Then I guess it’s a deal” I spoke more confidently as I moved over to straddle Ethan’s lap.
