8. The Date

Chapter 6

"The Date"


Avery has been at Dan and Phil's for a month and a half x

Avery's POV

I woke up the next morning at 8:00 am because I made plans with Rachel at 9:00. Her and I were going to go to breakfast and do some shopping before tonight.

I straightened my hair because I didn't have the energy to curl it. Then I picked out a gray long sleeve, some white pants, and black flats. I then put on some face powder, light eye shadow, mascara, and just a little bit of blush.

It didn't surprise me that Dan and Phil weren't up yet, so I left them a note:

8:45 am. I made plans with Rachel.

Be back soon xx -Avery

After I finished writing the note, I put it in the kitchen because I knew that's the first place they'd go when they woke up. And then I went to meet Rachel.

We wanted to do something quick for breakfast since we wanted to go shopping as well, so her and I just met at Starbucks again.

When I arrived at Starbucks, Rachel was in the same spot she was in last time we were here.

"Hi Avery", she said.

"Hey Rachel. Did you order my favorite?", I said.

"A caramel Macchiato and a pumpkin scone", said Rachel.

"Oh you love me", I said as I took a sip of my coffee.

"So, Avery, you and Dan?", Rachel said.

"What about me and Dan?", I asked.

"Are you guys boyfriend and girlfriend?", she asked.

"I wouldn't officially call us boyfriend and girlfriend. It's just one date", I answered.

"But he likes you", Rachel said.

"And Phil really likes you", I said.

"Are you serious?", Rachel giggled.

"Dead serious. Now let's get on with our shopping", I said.

"Oh. Yeah right", Rachel said.

Rachel and I left Starbucks at 10:30 and went to our first store, which was Hot Topic. We weren't looking for anything in particular, but we spent hours in that store.

"What did you buy?", Rachel asked.

"I bought purple and black hair dye and a Grumpy Cat crew neck sweatshirt", I said.

"I got a Sherlock sleeveless top and some Harry Potter socks", Rachel said.

"It was you that took the last Sherlock shirt?", I asked.

"Sorry not sorry", Rachel said. I rolled my eyes, but I laughed anyways.

By the time we left Hot Topic, it was 12:30 and we went to the next store, which was Victoria's Secret.

"Can you imagine if we went here with Dan and Phil?", Rachel asked.

"I can practically hear Dan cringing", I said, sending us both into fits of laughter.

We didn't spend too much time in that store, but we both ended up buying pajamas.

"What time is it?", Rachel asked.

"It's 1:15. We need to be home by 7:00, so we have time", I said.

We went to FYE, Macy's, and Forever 21. When we left the last store, it was 6:30 so we decided to head home.

Dan's POV

Tonight, Phil and I were going on a double date with Avery and Rachel. There was a Doctor Who double feature playing at the cinema and since we were all giant nerds, we decided to go there.

'Where is are they?", Phil asked.

"They're on their way, Phil. Calm down", I said.

Just then, there was a knock on the door.

"I'll get it!", Phil yelled.

"Hi Phil", Rachel said with a smile.

"H-hi Rachel", Phil said nervously.

"Well, why don't you two bring in your bags and then we can get going?", I asked.

"Okay", Avery said.

Since there were four of us, we walked to the cinema. It helped that the cinema wasn't too far from our apartment. Phil and Rachel were walking in front of Avery and I and Phil wouldn't stop talking.

"Is he always like that?", Avery asked.

"Phil? Sometimes. But I've never seen him into a girl this much before", I said. It's true. Rachel really made Phil happy.

We arrived at the cinema and we bought our tickets, with Phil paying for him and Rachel and me paying for Avery and I.

"Why don't you guys go save our seats and Avery and I will get the popcorn?", Rachel said.

"Okay sounds good", I said.

Avery's POV

"Why don't you guys go save our seats and Avery and I will get the popcorn?", Rachel said.

"Okay sounds good", said Dan.

As Rachel and I were standing in line for popcorn, Rachel started breathing heavily.

"Rachel, are you okay?", I asked nervously.

"Yeah I'm okay. My asthma is just acting up, but I have my inhaler so I'll be okay", she said.

We bought two large popcorns and being typical me, I bought soda. Then Rachel and I made our way auditorium.

"Hey we're back", I said.

"Here let me help you with that", Dan said as I handed him the popcorn.

"Thank you", I said as I sat down.

Right when the movie started, Rachel started breathing heavily again.

"Hey guys, I'm going to take Rachel outside. I think she needs some fresh air", Phil said.

"Rachel are you okay?", I whispered.

"I-I'm...f-f-fine", she said so softly that she didn't need to whisper.

About 30 minutes into the movie, Dan got a text from Phil.

"Avery, we've got to go. Rachel's fainted", he said.

I didn't even respond. I bolted out of my seat and ran out of the theater, with Dan following behind me.

We found them outside. Phil was on the ground, holding an unconscious Rachel and on the phone with 911.

"An ambulance is on the way", Phil said.

"What exactly happened?", Dan asked.

"She was having trouble breathing. I tried to ask her what was wrong, but she was too busy trying to catch her breathe to answer. I was looking through her purse to try to find her inhaler, but it wasn't there. I was going to tell her, but she had fainted. And that's when I called 911", Phil said.

"Oh I hope she'll be okay", I said.

"Me too", Phil said.

Right then, the ambulance arrived.

"One person can go in the back with her", the medic said.

"Me. I'll go", I said.

I climbed in to the back of the ambulance with Rachel and off we went to the hospital.

During the drive to the hospital, Rachel showed no signs of movement, which was really making me worry.

When we arrived at the hospital, they took Rachel away on a stretcher and they told me I had to go and wait in the waiting room. Thankfully, there weren't that many people there. Just a mother and her son, a man who looked about 28, and an old lady.

Doctors came in and out of the waiting room, but none of them had news on Rachel's condition. One told the 28 year old man that he was now a father, another told the mother that her husband was going to live, and the last told the old lady that her husband was going to be fine.

I had been in the waiting room for about 3 hours when a doctor came in and said, "Is anyone here for a girl named Rachel?"

"Me. I am. Is she okay", I said.

"She suffered from what we first assumed to be a severe asthma attack, but it was actually a panic attack. The inability to breathe caused her to lose consciousness, but she's going to be fine. We are just going to keep her here overnight to be safe", said the doctor.

"Oh thank you doctor...?", I said.

"Oh Smith. Doctor John Smith. Now pleaE go home and get some rest, miss. There is a taxi waiting for you outside", he said.

"Okay thank you Doctor Smith", I said.


I arrived back at Dan and Phil's apartment and walked up the stairs slowly. Not even bothering to knock, I walked right in and Dan and Phil ran to meet me.

"Is Rachel okay?", Dan asked.

"What happened to her? Is she okay?", Phil asked.

"She suffered from a panic attack, but she's going to be fine. They're just keeping her overnight to be safe", I said.

"Oh thank God", Phil said.

"I'm glad she's okay", Dan said.

"Me too", I said.

It was now 11:30 and I was having trouble keeping my eyes open.

"Hey guys I'm quite tired, so I'm going to go to bed", I said.

"Okay goodnight", Phil said.

"Goodnight Avery", Dan said.

I walked into my room and put on my new Victoria's Secret pajamas. Then I slowly climbed into bed and fell into a surprisingly dreamless sleep.
