I was meeting up with Sam today to just hang out and get to know each other. I still can't believe this is actually happening, he may be a fellow youtuber, but he's one of my idols. I love and respect him so much, and for him to actually watch my videos gives me the most accomplished feeling in the world. Sam also followed me on twitter this morning and I literally screamed and accidentally woke up Connor and Ricky. I'm not too sure if I woke up JC, he didn't come out of his room, so I'm assuming he's still asleep. I was kind of happy that he stayed in his room though, he had ignored me all of last night after calling my idol an 'asshole' and didn't even give me a logical reason as to why he thinks so.
Anyways, it's 11a.m, and I'm meeting Sam at 12 at Hollywood blvd, so I had to leave like.. now. We're planning to go to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and check out some other cool things in that area, then go get something to eat at Shelly Cafe, apparently it's really good.
I spotted Sam standing by himself. He was so beautiful, more and more so the closer I got to him. I really loved his sense of style and out of all the youtubers, his hair is defiantly my favorite! Obviously I can't tell the rest of O2L, Troye Sivan or Tyler Oakley that, shh.
"You're looking lovely today." He smiled his million dollar smile at me.
"You're sounding lovely today." I smiled back.
"I see you like British accents."
"Like, more like love them."
"I don't understand, do girls only like British guys because of their accents?"
"No, silly. Some British accents aren't as attractive as others, but that doesn't matter. Girls like British guys because they're all such gentlemen. And they act so sweet and kind hearted, you know?"
"Oh, I see. So it's more of a personality thing?"
"Yeah, the accent is just a bonus." I laughed.
"That's really good to know. Anyways, do you want to get started with out little adventure?" Sam asked. We were walking about coming to the Hollywood walk of fame all night, we were both just as excited as the other to witness the history.
After wondering around Hollywood blvd for a couple of hours, we decided it was time to sit down and eat. And definitely get to know each other.
"So, Hazel, what's it like being on a collaboration channel?"
"It's really fun, and a fun experience too."
"Is it not a lot of work? I mean, on top of that, you make videos for your own channel?"
"Yeah, but the videos on o2l are easier to make, it's just editing that takes time."
"True. I'm not a big fan of editing, I get so sick of hearing myself." Sam laughed.
"Me too, but it's worth it in the end."
"It really is. Do it for the fans. Haha."
"Exactly." I smiled.
"But enough about youtube, tell me about yourself. I watch all you videos but you're not very informative about yourself on your channel."
"That's because I don't really do question and answer videos.. I actually don't think I've made one yet."
"Maybe we should do one. A collaboration video of you answering some more personal questions?" Sam asked.
"That would be nice, but only if I get to do a video with you on your channel?" I smiled wide.
"Yay, thank you." So this is what true happiness feels like.
After eating, I drove Sam back to the o2l house so we could do our collabs. We were going to do 3 because I had completely forgotten I had to post today. I'm really bad with that. After I completed my information video, I uploaded it onto youtube and Sam and I began to film the other 2 videos.
"Hey guys, it's Sam Pepper here. Umm, I don't know what I'm doing on this channel though, I'm pretty sure it's not mine, but it'll do. So, today I'm going to be putting on this dress?" Sam picked one of my dresses up off the floor and gave it a weird look.
I jumped into frame, "Just kidding!" I smiled. "Hey guys, it's Hazel here and today I have a not so special guest, the one and only Sam Pepper."
"Hey, I'm more special than you." Sam pretended to be offended.
"Yes Sam, you're very 'special'." I used air quotations while saying special and laughed.
"Why am I even here?" Sam laughed.
"Because today, you're hosting my very first, very exclusive Q and A! Yay!"
"Ohh, I've been waiting for this." Sam rubbed his hands together evilly.
"So, where did you get these questions from because I don't recall either of us asking twitter or anything..?" I asked Sam.
"I actually did ask on twitter just now. These questions will fresh off the twittosphere." Sam winked.
"Okay, you have 20 questions, lets do this!"
"I asked them to ask personal questions, not weird ones, okay? One, are you and Sam Pepper dating? Ooh, Hazel, are we dating?" He raised his eyebrows and I felt my cheeks flush.
"Noo, we're just friends." I smiled.
"Two, are you single?"
"Three, 5 favorite bands?"
"Pierce the Veil, Bring me the Horizon, 5 Seconds of Summer, Nirvana and Of Mice & Men. Easy."
The rest of the questions were simple, more informative questions about me. I'm surprised some of them were asked because I thought my fans knew more about me. Turns out I'm really not much of an open person.
"And that was 20 questions." I laughed.
"Yes, I learnt a lot about you today. I feel accomplished." Sam smiled.
"Well, that was pretty fun. Thank you for all your questions guys and oh, check out Sam's channel because we should have a collaboration there too! So, just click on his eyebrows and it should take you to his channel."
"You should all subscribe too, because I make better videos than Hazel." Sam said, grinning.
"Ew, he wishes." I laughed, "Well, c'ya later guys."
We then set up the cameras outside, because that's where Sam wanted to film his video. We were doing the 3 in 1 challenge.
"...So basically, the 3 in 1 challenge is, I choose a random challenge out of this hat and Hazel picks one out too. We have to complete these challenges and if it's a draw, you get your 3rd challenge. If it's not a draw, the title is sort of false and you only get 2 challenges. You pick yours first." Sam gave me the hat.
I rambled around in there, hoping I got a challenge I could possibly beat Sam at, "I got the... raw onion challenge?! Are you kidding me? Why did you put this in there?"
"I honestly have no idea.. but it's my turn." Sam picked out a piece of paper, "I got the.. no arms make up challenge. That should be fun."
"What should be fun?" I very rude voice interrupted our video.
"Oh, hi JC." Sam smiled.
"Hazel, what are you doing?" JC asked in an annoyed whisper.
"Making a video with Sam, what does it look like?"
"It looks like Sam is leaving." JC looked Sam straight into the eyes.
"You know what, I should get going.. Maz might be looking for me. And I don't have my phone." Sam turned off the camera, "It was nice.. today was nice."
"No Sam, stay." I held his arm and begged.
"No, I don't want to be a burden. I'll talk to you soon."
"What the hell JC?" I almost yelled at him, while Sam was still there packing up. I took JC into the house and left Sam to pack up by himself. "What are you doing?"
"Nothing." JC dropped his attitude.
"Why are you kicking Sam out?"
"I'm not, he's leaving by choice."
"Choice? Yeah, your choice maybe. What is your problem with Sam?"
"He's an as-"
"Asshole, I know. You say it all the fucking time, but you never give me a legitimate reason as to why you think he is. And honestly, you're the only guy who's ever been an asshole to me. You baby me too much JC and you're constantly angry at me. Why is that? I've been living with you for not even a whole week and you've taken control of my life." I ranted.
"I just don't want you to get hurt."
"If you haven't noticed, you're the only one who's been hurting me. You're holding me back, JC. I came to LA to explore and be free but every time I come into contact with a boy, you're telling him to piss off, or anytime I'm going out, you interrogate me with questions." I continued.
JC was almost going to say something, but stopped himself when Sam walked in.
"I was just leaving."
"I'm sorry Sam, maybe we can film another time?" I asked, hoping he didn't hate me.
"Sure." He smiled, I think he was happy I offered, "When will the video on your channel be up?"
"Maybe tomorrow or Saturday. Not sure."
"Cool, maybe we could film on Saturday." Sam was about to walk out the front door.
"No, wait Sam!" I stopped him, "Could we film during next week?"
"Sure. Anything else before I leave?"
I looked at JC and he nodded, "Uhh, no.. oh, wait, I mean yes! I wanted to film during next week because this weekend is my birthday. Did you want to come to my party? It's my 18th and it would mean the world to me if you came?" I pulled the puppy dog face on him.
Sam automatically looked at JC and gave him an evil smirk,"I'd love to come." And with that, he left.
I turned to JC who didn't look so happy, "Why did you invite him?"
"Because it's my birthday party, not yours and I can invite whoever the fuck I want and I can damn well un-invite people too." I gave him a serious look, it was only an empty threat, but if he pushed it, I may just have to. I can't have him being an asshole to all my guy friends.
"Whatever, it's not like I wanted to go anyways."
That honestly hurt, I looked him dead in the eyes and he could see it. I felt my heart sink, it may not sound like much to people, but he sounded like didn't care about me. JC has been one of my closest friends and for him to just be so straight up to me with something like that hurt. I felt my eyes water up and I ran upstairs to my room.
