Across The World || Dan Howell

Dan and Phil move into a bigger apartment because they decided to take in an exchange student. Meanwhile, Avery is on her way to London to meet her host family, who happens to be Dan and Phil. What happens when she gets there is more than she expected.


33. America


In the earlier chapter called "I'll Never Forget You", Phil said he didn't have a girl. Well, I may have accidentally forgot about the character Rachel. They are still together! I edited the chapter so that it says they're still together because they are!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this chapter xx


Chapter 30



Avery's POV

Dan and I had finally set a date for our wedding. It would be in five months time, on the 31st of October this year. 


Today, Dan, Phil, Rachel, and I were taking a trip to America. More specifically, my hometown of San Francisco.


"Dan, you need to wake up now", I said as I shook him awake.


"Mm", Dan mumbled, turning over in his sleep, "Why are you waking me up this early?"


"We're going to America today, remember? Rachel is going to be here soon", I said.


Without saying anything, Dan rolled out of bed and made his way to the bathroom to take a shower. I had already packed the night before, so I began to get ready.


I was in the middle of straightening my hair when there was a knock on the door.


"Hello Rachel", I heard Phil say.


"Hey", she said.


I then heard footsteps coming towards my room as I continued to straighten my hair.


"Knock knock. Can I come in?", Rachel said, poking her head in.


I just giggled and waved her in. She closed the door behind her and came and sat down on my bed.

"Haven't seen you in awhile", Rachel yawned.

"Things have been crazy to say the least", I said as I attempted to perfect my eyeliner.

"Congratulations by the way", she smiled, "On your engagement to Dan, I mean".

"Thank you", I smiled, "How are you and Phil? Still doing well?"

"Yeah we're good", Rachel said as her cheeks turned pink.

We say in silence for just a few short minutes. I finalized my makeup and brushed my hair one last time. Then I got changed into an oversized Spirited Away t-shirt and some black skinny jeans. When I had finished tying my shoes, there was a knock on my door.

"Who is it?", Rachel asked.

"It's Phil. Are you guys almost ready?", he said.

"Yeah, be right out", I said as I stood up.

I was about to open my bedroom door when I heard Phil whispering to himself.

"You can do this, Phil. When we're all in America, you can do it. You have to do it".

"You have to do what?", I asked, opening my door and startling Phil.

"Oh, nothing", he said quickly, shoving a small object into his pocket, " guys ready to go then?"

"Yeah", I nodded, "Where's Dan?"

"He's...he's just getting the last of his things together. Come on. I'll help your bags", Phil said.

Then Phil helped Rachel and I take our bags to the door. Phil had barely put his hand on the door handle when Dan appeared behind us.

"Avery...", Dan said a bit nervously.

"Dan, is everything alright?", I questioned as I walked up to him.

"I know we're already engaged, but I never gave you a ring. So...", Dan said as he got down in one knee and took out a small velvet box, "Will you take this ring and be mine forever!"

"Of course, Dan", I giggled.

Dan then stood up and happily slipped the ring onto my finger.

"Apologies for changing the subject, but we need to leave now so we don't miss our flight", Phil said.

"Right. Let's go", Dan said.

Dan took his suitcase in one hand and my hand in the other as we headed out the door and made our way to the cab that was waiting for us outside.

~ Skip Car Ride To The Airport ~

As soon as we stepped into the airport, we heard hysterical screaming.

"It's Dan and Phil!", a girl screamed as she and another girl ran towards us.

Dan groaned slightly, as did the rest of us. It was early in the morning and none of us felt like dealing with fans. But Dan and Phil put on smiles anyway.

"Did you guys want a picture?", Phil asked with a smile.

The two girls just nodded excitedly and pulled out their phones. When they had both taken pictures, one of them walked up to me.

"Can I have a picture with you, too?", she asked.

"Sure", I nodded.

The girl held her phone out to take a selfie of the two of us, so I just held up a peace sign and smiled. After we had taken the picture, she looked at my left hand and gasped.

"You and Dan are engaged?", she whispered.

"Yes, but please don't say anything. We were planning on telling everyone when we get back to England", I said.

"I won't tell anyone", she said as she shook her head.

"Guys, we've really got to go", Phil said.

"Bye! It was nice meeting you!", the two girls said as they waved goodbye.

"You too! Bye!", I said as we walked away.

We went through security, which took forever, as it always does in an airport. Then we boarded our plane just in time. We were sitting in pairs. Phil was sitting with Rachel and I was sitting with Dan.

I hadn't been home in nearly two years. I hadn't even talked to my parents in over a year and a half. There was so much going on that I didn't even think about it. It just slipped my mind.

I was just hoping that my parents didn't flip out when I told them that Dan and I were engaged.

Dan's POV

We all had boarded out plane and found out seats. Phil was with Rachel and I was with Avery. I normally would be focused on trying not to look out the window, but I had other things on my mind.

What if Avery's parents didn't like me?

What if they thought I wasn't good enough for her?

What if they made her break off the engagement?

"Dan? Babe, are you okay?", Avery asked.

"What? Yeah why wouldn't I be?", I said.

"You seem put off", Avery said, narrowing her eyes at me, "Why don't you tell me what's bothering you babe?"

"Promise you won't laugh?", I asked.

"Of course. Now what is it?", Avery said, taking my hand in hers.

"It's your parents. I'm scared they're not going to like me. I'm scared they're going to think we're moving to fast. I'm scared they're going to force you to leave me", I said as I tightened my grip around her hand.

"Dan, you don't need to be scared. Everything will be alright. My parents are going to love you, alright", Avery said, giving me a kiss on the cheek.

"Alright babe", I smiled as I gave her a kiss on the lips.

As I watched Avery's eyes slowly close, I just kept hoping that what she told me was true.
