Two months had passed, there had been scans, and Brooke was finally showing. The viewers were extremely supported and Brooke was doing weekly pregnancy vlogs which everyone loved and watched religiously, including my mum who wanted to keep up to date with everything. She had framed the first scan photo we sent her and was extremely excited by now.
“Left you multiple missed calls and to my message you reply, why’d you only call me when you’re high?” I was blasting the Arctic Monkeys while rendering my new video. My subscriber count had been going up steadily going up anyway but it had recently been going up faster before a huge amount of subscribers which put me at over 500,000, so I filmed a thank you video, also receiving emails from ‘fans’ and other YouTubers asking to collaborate I was in a mess of replying to emails and attending appointments for various things with Brooke, I was constantly busy and neglecting the good things in life like relaxation and beer. So tonight the lads were taking me out.
“What time are we leaving?” I shouted out the door, hoping someone would answer.
“5:30, we’re going for food too!” Zack shouted back.
“Thank you!” It was three, so I had enough time to upload the video and have a shower. I pulled out a shirt from the wardrobe and some jeans and my converse. The jeans were acid wash black and the shirt was thin and light blue, so I went downstairs to iron it, only to be greeted by Brooke.
“Hey baby, I didn’t know you were here?” she smiled.
“I’ll iron your shirt go and get showered and upload your video.” I smiled and kissed her cheek.
I ran upstairs and showered quickly before beginning the upload on the video. The shirt was ironed on the back of my door and Brooke was nowhere to be seen.
“She went home bro, she’s okay, she’s having some of her girls over for Chinese food and chick flicks, if she needs you she’ll call.” Ethan was in the doorway holding his wallet in one hand and his shoes in the other. “Almost ready?” I nodded and did up the last button on my shirt and gelled my hair up in a slight quiff to keep it off my face.
We went to an awesome Indian restaurant and had great food before heading into central London to the clubs.
I woke the next morning with the worst hangover. Only really remembering getting home in a taxi so we must have drank at home too before going to bed. On my bedside table was a glass of water and a few painkillers. I smiled at the note under the glass.
I love you Al, take these and get some sleep, see you later, Brooke xxx
She’d kissed the paper and left a lipstick mark on it. I took the painkillers and got up, checking the computer to see how many new subscribers I had. Some people had been posting pictures after meeting me last night in London and I couldn’t stop laughing at some of them. The later the picture was taken, the funnier they were. I went downstairs and saw Brooke sitting on the sofa looking through some photos from last night on the internet. She was laughing at them and I smiled.
“Looks like you had a great night Al.” she said giggling. I winked and got myself some breakfast. I sat with her and turned the TV on and ate my food.
Once everyone was up we went out to do some vlogging for Brookes channel together in Hyde Park, just spending the day together and walking around.
We’d decided to go back home after getting ice cream and various other things for the boys.
London was certainly treating me well. A beautiful girlfriend, a great YouTube network, and a baby. I felt blessed for the first time in my life.
It's late in the evening
Glass on the side
I've been sat with you
For most of the night
Ignoring everybody here
We wish they would disappear
So maybe we could get down now
