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.


5. School Things

Chapter 4

"School Things"


I'm changing Avery's age. Instead of a senior in high school, she's a freshman in college :) This chapter is dedicated to my new fan @dreamshade.x :)

Avery's POV

When I woke up, its was 10:30 am. I was super tired from staying up until who knows when watching Death Note. But since school started in a week and a half, I needed to go into town to get some things for school. So I texted Rachel and asked her if she wanted to go with me.

Me: Rachel it's Avery :)

Rachel: Avery! Hi :)

Me: Hey want to go into town with me today? x

Rachel: Sounds great! :)

Me: Perfect :) meet you at Starbucks in 45?

Rachel: I'll be there :)

Me: Awesome :) see ya

I walked into the living room to see if Dan and Phil were awake and sure enough, they were settled into their sofa creases and browsing the internet.

"Oh good morning, Avery", Dan said from his spot on the couch.

"Good morning guys. I was going to go into town to get some things for school with my friend Rachel. She's visiting family here", I said.

"Alright. Phil and I are going to make some videos for our gaming channel while you're gone", said Dan.

"Okay. Anyways, I should start getting ready", I said.

"Mkay", said Dan.

I looked in the bathroom mirror and saw how big of a mess I was. My makeup was smeared and my hair was a mess. I didn't have time to do much, so I just put my hair in a messy bun. I put on some face powder, eye shadow, and then mascara. It wasn't cold or hot, so I decided to wear my black ripped jeans, a white sleeveless top, and some black high top converse.

By that time, I had to leave to meet Rachel at Starbucks. It was only two blocks away from Dan and Phil's apartment, so I just decided to walk. For London at 11:15 am, there weren't a lot of people out and about.

When I arrived at Starbucks, Rachel was already there sitting at a table somewhat towards the corner.

"Avery!", she said as she came up to me and gave me a hug.

"Hey Rachel", I said.

"Come sit. I ordered you a caramel macchiato", she said.

"Thank you", I said as I sat down and drank my favorite Starbucks drink.

"So what's been going on? How are you? How's Dan? How's Phil? Are they as cute is real life?", Rachel said.

"Okay one question at a time", I laughed.

"Right sorry", she chuckled, "How've you been?"

"I'm good. And you?", I said.

'I'm great, thanks. How's your boyfriend?", Rachel said.

"What are you talking about?", i asked.

"I mean Dan", she said.

"He's not my boyfriend", I said as I took another sip of my drink.

"Avery, what's your Twitter?", Rachel asked.

"It's @avery_xoxo", I said.

"And when's the last time you checked it?", she asked.

"Uhm, maybe about 3 weeks ago. Why?", I said.

"Check it and check the top trending hashtag", Rachel said.

I was kind of confused as to why Rachel was asking me to do this, but I did it anyway. I logged onto Twitter and immediately checked the top trending hashtag.

I couldn't believe my eyes.

"#davery ?", I said.

"Yeah practically the entire Twitter world is shipping you two", said Rachel, "Like when I asked Ph-"

"What?", I said.

"Nothing", she said.

"No no no what is it?", I said.

"Nope nothing", Rachel said.

"Rachel, what's your Twitter?", I asked suspiciously.

No answer.

"Rachel?", I asked again.

"It's um, @lovinglester", she said.

"It was you? You were the one who asked Dan If he fancied me?", I said.

"Maybe?", she said.

"Why?", I asked.

"I thought it would be funny", Rachel said.

"To be fair, his reaction was pretty funny", I said.

"Yeah. Well, should we get going?", said Rachel.

"Sounds good", I said.

So Rachel and I left Starbucks and went into town. The school was providing books for me, so I was glad I didn't have to worry about that. The first thing i decided to get was my school uniform.

"I would drop out of a school that made me wear that", Rachel said as me looked at the ugly plaid skirt I was holding.

"Yeah, well I'm not exactly thrilled to be wearing it either", I said.

"And a polo shirt? And a tie? Drop out now", she said.

"Hah believe me I thought about it", I laughed.

"When do you start?", Rachel asked.

"In a week", I said.

"Well good luck", she said.

"Thanks", I said.

Once we left that store, we went to get my school shoes.

"And you have to wear clunky brown shoes? What kind of a school is this?", Rachel said.

"It's more like a prison", I said.

"You got that right", said Rachel.

As much as I hated the shoes, I bought them. But only for the uniform.

"Well, where should we go now?", Rachel asked.

"I need to get a backpack, notebooks, and things like that", i said.

Rachel and I found this school supply store not far from the shoe store we were at.

"Tell me you can at least have a nice backpack", Rachel said.

"It needs to be black", I said.

"I feel so sorry for you", she said.

I decided on getting a black messenger bag, 4 notebooks, and some pens and pencils.

"What else is left?", said Rachel.

"I think I've got everything", I said.

"Ah great. I'm hungry", Rachel said.

"Me too", I said.

We were tired and didn't feel like walking around much more, so we just went to Starbucks again.

"Another caramel macchiato?", Rachel said.

"It's my favorite", I laughed.

"No kidding", Rachel chuckled.

Just then, my phone dinged.

"Oooo is that Dan?", Rachel asked.

"No no no. That's the sound my phone makes when I get an email", I said.

The email was from my school.

"Dear Avery,-", I began. As I continued reading I looked at Rachel with wide eyes.

"What is it? What's wrong?", she asked.

"I-I-I need to go", I said.

Rachel and I left Starbucks and I didn't said anything on the way home.

"Avery, tell me what's wrong", Rachel said as we were walking up the stairs to Dan and Phil's apartment.

I didn't answer her.

When we knocked on the door, Dan answered.

"Dan, there's something wrong with Avery", Rachel said, probably too worried to fangirl.

"What is it?", Dan asked.

"I don't know. She won't tell me", Rachel said.

"Avery, come here", Dan said as we went and sat on the couch, "Phil come here!"

"What is it?", Phil asked.

"There's something wrong with Avery", I said again.

"Avery?", Phil said as he sat next to me.

"Avery, tell us what's wrong", Dan said with his hand on my knee.

"I'm late. A week and a half late", I choked out.


Hooray for chapter 4! I hope you all liked it :) Even though my second update this week was so close to Sunday, I will still update Sunday. In case you didn't catch it, I changed Avery's age and she's a freshman in college instead of a senior in hush school. Thank you all who have been reading this story :) Please fan, like, favorite, and comment! I really appreciate it :)

Love you xx
