31. After Us Again

Chapter 28

"After Us Again"

Dan's POV

I kept telling myself that I'd be back. It would all come back one day. I was just stopping for a little bit. Yeah, just temporary.

So I sat in front of my camera and pressed "record".

"Hello, internet. So this video is going to be a bit more serious", I said.

Remember, Dan. It's just temporary.

" I don't know why this is so hard. Uh...I'm not going to be making YouTube videos for awhile", I said.

It's alright, Dan. It's not forever.

"Just let that sink in for a moment. It's not forever. It's just temporary. Once Avery and I are married, I'll start the videos up again", I continued.

You can always start them again later.

"I know what some of you may be thinking. 'It's Avery's fault. That's why he won't be making videos. It's because of her'. Well, if you're thinking that, stop. Stop right now. Avery makes me happy. You all need to accept that. And if any one of you send Avery hate, I WILL find you", I said as I pointed at the camera.

I took a deep breath before I wrapped up the video.

"So, to end this video, I'd just like to say...", I said, trailing off at the end.

"Goodbye for now, Internet. See you later", I said as I waved to the camera.

I turned off my camera and I just sat there. Thinking.

I would start my videos again, right?

I'm not saying goodbye to the internet right?

Yeah, I'll get back into the videos.

But what if Avery and I have children?

But this was a dilemma for another time. Once I had edited the video, I titled it "See You Later Internet".

After a few minutes of scrolling through Tumblr, there was a knock on my bedroom door.

"Come in", I said.

"Hey, Dan?", Avery said.

"Oh, hi Avery", I smiled.

"I was wondering if you wanted to go to dinner?", she asked.

"I'd love to, but what about Phil?", I said.

"Oh he's going out with Rachel tonight", Avery said.

"Oh alright then. Let's go", I said as I got up from my desk chair.

Someone Else's POV

"Did you hear?", she asked from the other end of the phone.

"Y-yes...I...I heard they're-", I began.

"DON'T say it. Don't you DARE say it", she yelled angrily.

"I'm...I'm sorry", I said shakily.

"Ugh, this whole situation disgusts me. You know what I want you to do, right?", she said.

"But, I can't-", I began.

"I don't want any of your excuses. I want you to find them and, well, you know", she said.

" I can't do that", I said as firmly as I could.

"Oh, but it would be a real shame if something would happen to your family", she said in a raspy voice.

" wouldn't", I said.

"I think we both know that I would. Now find them. And kill them. Kill them both", she said.

"I c-can't. I can't kill anyone", I said.

"FINE. You useless piece of trash. I'll do it myself. But you better watch your back if you want you and your family to live", she said just before she hung up the phone.

I then fell on the floor and cried. I cried and cried. How did I ever get mixed up in all of this?

HER pov

*(quick Author's Note: This pov is the pov of the person on the other end of the phone in the previous pov)*

I watched them. I watched them leave their flat, hand in hand. The entire essence of them made me want to projectile vomit. It needed to be stopped. Someone needed to put a stop to it. Someone...someone like me.

I saw them walked into a corner restaurant. I sat outside at a table until I saw what Dan and Avery were going to do. They chose a table outside as well.

"How can I help you?", the overly peppy waitress asked.

" I'm just...sitting", I said, without making eye contact.

"Just relaxing? Yeah sometimes we-", she began.

"Yeah, I missed the part where I asked. So go away", I said, still refusing to make eye contact.

I heard her scoff as she walked away to help the table in front of me, which was the table Avery and Dan were sitting at. Avery sat with her back to me and Dan sat opposite her. They ordered their drinks and the waitress walked off.

This is it. If I wait too long, it won't work. I have to do it now.

I walked around the corner and felt my gun in my bag. Then I just barely peeked my head around the corner. Avery and Dan were still the only ones outside, but I knew that wouldn't last long. So I pulled out my gun and made about the biggest mistake of my life.

Dan's POV

Avery and I were sitting outside of a corner restaurant for dinner. There was a sketchy person sitting at the table behind us, but I didn't pay them much attention. Avery and I just ordered our drinks.

"So, I hope you don't mind, but I've kind of started planning our wedding already", I smiled.

"Mr. Howell, you have not", Avery smiled back.

"Yes future Mrs. Howell, I have. And y-", I said, but I stopped in the middle of the last sentence.

"Dan? Earth to Dan", Avery said as she waved her hand in front of my face.

"What? Oh sorry. It's just I saw someone looking around the corner and I thought I recognized them. I'm sure it was just my imagination", I said as I waved the thought out of my mind.

Just then, the waitress came out with our drinks. But at the same time, I felt something shoot past my head. Next thing I knew, the drink glasses shattered and the waitress fell to the ground. I saw someone running down the street as fast as they could. That very well could have been the person that shot at us.

"Are you okay? Can you hear me?", Avery asked the nearly unconscious waitress.

The waitress just kind of mumbled something indistinguishable. We needed to get her to a hospital quick. By then, the entire cafe was outside.

"Avery, we need to go", I said.

"But what about her?", Avery asked as she pointed at the waitress who was still on the ground.

"They've already called the ambulance. Now let's get out of here", I said quickly.

Avery and I hopped in a cab and sped back to the flat.

"Dan, who could've done this?", Avery asked.

"I think...I think someone tried to kill us", I said in disbelief.

" don't think it was...", Avery began.

"Yes, it is quite possible it was her", I said.

Avery's POV

~ Back At The Flat ~

We were all sitting in the lounge filling Phil in on what just happened.

"So, someone tried to kill you?", Phil asked.

"Well, that's what we think. I knew that person sitting behind us looked sketchy", Dan said.

"Do you think it was...", Phil began.

"Yes, Phil. I do think it was...her", Dan said.

At the moment, I felt like vomiting. 

She's after us. She's after us again.

"I think I'm just gonna...I'm gonna go to bed", I said as I got up.

"Are you alright, Avery? You look a bit pale", Phil said.

"Yeah, I'm fine. I'm just...tired. Goodnight", I said as I walked to my room.

"Goodnight", I heard them both say at the same time.

I slowly changed into the first pair of pajamas I found and crawled into bed. I knew I would have a hard time falling asleep tonight. I couldn't believe she was after us again. i couldn't believe she was back.
