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.


13. First Kiss?

Chapter 11

"First Kiss?"

Avery's POV

I woke myself up at 8:00 the next morning because I had work at 10:00. Again, everyone was asleep except for me. Phil and Rachel were both passed out on one couch and Dan and I were on the other. I was still rather tired, but I forced myself to get up and go take a shower.

After I had finished my shower, I blow-dried my hair and put it back in a french braid. Then I did my usual makeup routine and put on my all-black outfit, which was my plain black t-shirt, ripped black skinny jeans, and black converse.

When it was time for me to leave for work, I left a note for the others.

9:45 am- I left for work. I'll be back

around 4:00 :) -Avery xx

After I set the note on the edge of the kitchen counter, I set off for work


"Hey Avery", Charlotte said when I walked in.

"Hi Charlotte", I said tiredly, "Do you have-"

"Already got your coffee made right here", she said as she handed me a caramel macchiato.

"Bless your soul", I said as I took a sip of my favorite Starbucks drink.

"Tired?", Charlotte asked. I lazily nodded my head.

"It's a good for you that it's a slow day, then", Charlotte said.

"Mm", I mumbled as I continued to drink my coffee.

"By the way, I have a surprise for you later", Charlotte smiled.

"What is it?", I asked.

"Do you not understand 'surprise'? I can't tell you until later", Charlotte laughed.

"At least give me a hint", I said.

"Hmm...okay. It has to do with One Direction", she said.

"I swear Charlotte if Louis is bringing the rest of the guys here...", I said as I tried not to fangirl too much.

"You'll just have to wait and see", Charlotte smiled.

Dan's POV

I woke up at 11:17 still tired from last night. When I first opened my eyes, I saw Rachel asleep on the couch opposite me and I heard Phil in the other room talking to someone on the phone. When I stretched my arms, I noticed that Avery was not next to me. Assuming that she had moved to her room in the middle of the night, I went into the kitchen to get some cereal. I was getting a mug for coffee when I noticed a piece of paper on the edge of the counter.

9:45- I left for work. I'll be back

around 4:00 :) -Avery xx

I set the note aside and continued to make my coffee.

"Everything alright?", I asked Phil as he walked into the kitchen.

"Oh everything's fine. I was just talking to my mum and she said that she want to meet Rachel", he said.

"Oh yeah? When?", I asked.

"She asked if we could come over later today", Phil said.

"Oh", I said, "When are you going?"

"Probably going to leave around 1:15. You gonna be okay here all day?", Phil said.

"Of course I'll be fine. I'm not going to do anything but browse the internet for hours", I said.

"I figured", Phil laughed.

I finished making my coffee and assumed my 'browsing position' and I started scrolling through the infinite memes of Tumblr.

After a few hours of scrolling through various social media sites, Phil and Rachel had left for the day and I was left alone. I was getting bored with social media, so moved on to YouTube. At 2:30, I was starting to get bored and lonely. I didn't want to go to Avery's work again because I didn't want to seem clingy. Oh well. Nothing I can do but browse the web until she comes home.

Avery's POV

It was now 3:41 and I was starting to get jumpy.

"What's the surprise?", I asked Charlotte for what seemed like the 20th time.

"You'll find out in...maybe 5 minutes", Charlotte said as she looked at her watch. I groaned in frustration. 

Just then, I heard the front doors opening and closing.

"Are you actually kidding me Louis?", I heard someone with a strong Irish accent say.

"Quit blaming me for something I didn't do, Niall", Louis laughed.

No way

I turned around and there standing right in front of me were the members of One Direction.

"Hi boys", Charlotte said. They all said hello to her and Louis gave her a hug.

"Hello, sis. Hello, Avery", Louis said.

I tried to say 'hi', but no words came out.

"Oh guys this is my friend Avery", Charlotte said to the rest of the boys.

"I'm guessing she's a huge fan?", Harry smiled.

"Oh yeah", Charlotte smiled.

"Nice to meet you, Avery", Liam said with a smile.

"Y-y-you too", I stuttered.

"Who's your favorite?", Charlotte asked.

"Niall...", I blushed.

"Good choice", Niall smiled.

"Of course it's Niall", Liam laughed.

"Niall gets all the girls!", Harry said over-dramatically.

Right then, I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. I looked at it and saw that I had tons of texts from Dan.

Dan: When are you coming home?

Dan: Are you on your way home yet?

Dan: Please come home

Dan: Phil and Rachel left

Dan: I'm all alone

Dan: I miss you

"Hah I should head home guys", I said.

"Is the boyfriend wondering where you are?", Charlotte teased.

"Boyfriend?", Niall said.

"What boyfriend?", Louis said.

"She's dating Dan Howell guys", Charlotte said.

"Who?", Niall asked.

"Remember him and another guy named Phil Lester interviewed us at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in 2012", Louis said. The rest of the guys mumbled 'oh yeah' or 'I remember them'.

"Well I should really get going guys. It was nice to meet you all", I said.

"I hope we can see each other again", Niall said.

"I was nice to meet you, too", Liam said.

"You too. See you later", Harry said.

"Bye Avery", Charlotte said to me.

"Bye Charlotte", I said.

"Bye everyone!", I said to the rest of the guys.

"Bye!", they all said.

I left work in a very good mood. The entire way back to the apartment, I couldn't stop thinking about the fact that I had just met One Direction. I was so deep in thought that I didn't even realize I had already arrived back at the apartment.

I walked in and Dan was exactly where I thought I would find him: on the couch with his laptop in his 'browsing position'. His back was turned so he didn't see or hear me walk in.

"I'm home!", I said. Dan immediately jumped off the couch and ran to meet me.

"I've missed you", Dan said as he hugged me.

"I missed you too, but Dan I can't breathe", I said.

"Oh right sorry", Dan laughed, "Well come sit down. You must be tired".

I walked into the living room and sat down on the couch. 

"I met the rest of One Direction today at work!", I said excitedly.

"Oh that's awesome! They're great lads. Were they nice to you?", Dan said.

"Yeah they were very nice. Although, Niall kind of seemed a bit jealous when he found out I was dating you", I said.

"Well I hope he knows that he's not going to take you away from me", Dan said.

"Of course not", I smiled.

"I'm glad you had a good day. Want to watch Attack On Titan?", Dan said.

"What's that?', I asked.

"Excuse me? Did you just ask what Attack On Titan is?", Dan asked over-dramatically.

"Yeah? I'm sorry I don't know what it is", I laughed.

"It's only one of the greatest anime series ever made and we are definitely watching it right now. But I have to warn you, it's very gory", Dan said.

"I don't know if I can do gory", I said.

"You'll be fine. You have me", Dan said.

Dan put in the first disc of Attack On Titan and started the first episode. 

I immediately was freaked out when the titans appeared on screen and I buried my face in Dan's shoulder.

"This is terrifying", I said.

"It's okay", Dan said as he put his arm around me.

"Tell me when it's over", I said.

I spent the next few minutes with my face buried in Dan's shoulder as I listened to the sound sof people screaming on the TV.

"Okay it's over", Dan said, keeping his arm around my shoulder.

"Thank you", I smiled.

Dan didn't move. He just kept his arm around me and looked into my eyes. Then his eyes traveled down to my lips. Before I knew what was happening, our lips connected.

"Sorry. I just had to do that", Dan said.
