As soon as I could, I left school and moved in with Alex, quickly learning that Dan and Phil actually lived here aswell, which was great. Once I was 17, and Dan 19, we began spending alot more time together, all four of us. Mine and Dan's relationship was still strong, and the few friends I had from school knew about it eventually. We didn't try to hide it, why would we?
I got a job at a pet store, looking after all the animals. I had to beg Alex and Dan to let me bring a kitten home, obviously Phil was fine with it. Eventually, I could adopt an orphaned kitten from work.
When I took the kitty home, we had to decide on a name for this adorable ginger creature.
"Well, I agreed on the condition that we named it Lion, so It's called Lion." Phil argued.
"Fine." We had to agree, I did say that. So Lion was my Kitten. He was adorable, ginger-striped, with piercing blue eyes and a playful personality. I had a job, a pet, a home, friends, and basically a family. My life at this point was as close to perfect as it could be.
"Hi guys!" Phil waved to the camera stacked ontop of several books; Dan had broken the Tripod Earlier, so they had to make do. "Today I want to introduce you tooo.... Drumroll please.... Maya!"
"Hi," I waved, sitting next to Phil on the floor.
"Maya's been living with us for over a year now. And.. Oh! One Sec." Phil jumped up and grabbed the cat. "This is her pet Lion! I named it of course." He passed me Lion, and told me what we were going to be doing. It was a Q & A video for Phil's Amazing youtube channel. (Amazing Phil, see what I did there? No? Okay continue...)
We filmed for a good hour, mainly laughing. Phil's videos were a bit different to Dan's, of course I watched them both.
When we were done, I said bye and went to get some food before Phil edited it. My phone buzzed, and I saw a message from Dan.
Hey Babe, once you're done filming with Phil can you meet me upstairs<3 x
I grabbed a packet of crisps and told Phil I'd be down in a minute, before running upstairs and barging into Dan's room; I had to be dramatic.
"Hey!" I called, not seeing Dan.
"Hey Babe." He said walking up to me, his eyes red, tears streaking his cheeks.
"What's up?" I asked, pulling him into a hug. He just shook his head and held me tight. I was rubbish at this, cheering people up, talking to people, helping others. They were huge weaknesses. But, I had to talk to Dan, I couldn't just let him stay like that. I walked him to the bed, and we started speaking. Eventually we were both happier, but then I remembered Phil.
"Thanks Maya." Dan smiled, staring into my eyes. I smiled back at him, and he kissed me. This was still a shock, even after a year.
"I've got to go, I'm meant to be helping Phil. I'm sorry."
"I forgot about that, sorry." He frowned, glaring at the floor.
"You needed help, I'm sure he wont mind. I'll come back up when we're done." I said as I left. I felt so bad, for leaving Dan and for leaving Phil. I texted him, it would be less awkward if I told him before entering an hour later than he thought.
"I'm sorry Phil, I went upstairs for a minute, and Dan was sat there crying and.."
"Is he okay now?"
"Yeah, he's good."
"Good, so you wanna get editing?"
"Please." Phil was so nice. He wasn't even bothered that I left him waiting for an hour, he was just worried about his bestfriend, and was still gonna help me edit this video. I was lucky to have them
