A/N: Chapter 11 ohmygosh
To make up for the depressing Author's Note I wrote, here :D have a fluffy chapter instead ^~^
It's so short though oml ;-; I'm so sorry. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy :D
Dan didn't have to wait long at all before his phone buzzed again. He picked it up, grinning when the kik notification showed.
AmazingPhil: Hey, Dan! I'm back now too :D
danisnotonfire: awesome! how are you?
AmazingPhil: I'm good ^-^ how about you?
danisnotonfire: eh. had an argument with my dad, but I guess it ended okay?
AmazingPhil: Oh no :O is everything okay?
danisnotonfire: well, it is now (:
AmazingPhil: That's good :)
Do you have school tomorrow?
danisnotonfire: Phil, it is WAY too early in the evening to remind me of school, c'mon.
AmazingPhil: So that's a yes?
danisnotonfire: regrettably, yes, that is a yes.
AmazingPhil: Don't you like your school?
danisnotonfire: it's shit and I'm constantly ignored. so I just tend to sit in the corner and pretend I don't exist.
AmazingPhil: I will flip a table.
danisnotonfire: be careful, let me grab my drink.
AmazingPhil: Dan, don't joke about this.
danisnotonfire: what? there's nothing I can do about it, so I may as well make a few jokes to make myself feel better.
AmazingPhil: I wish I could be there for you :/
danisnotonfire: don't worry. you are, just by saying that (:
AmazingPhil: Well, that's a start, at least :)
A... start? Was Phil talking about wanting to meet Dan already? Or was Dan just reading too much into this?
Dan's mind raced, and he told those thoughts to shove it, he didn't need them right now.
danisnotonfire : I guess so (:
AmazingPhil: Are you allowed to have your phone at school?
danisnotonfire: according to the rulebook? nope, but everybody has theirs anyway. teachers don't really pay attention.
AmazingPhil: We're allowed to use ours during breaks, but that's it. If you get caught using them during class, immediate internal suspension for three days.
danisnotonfire: what the fuck is an internal suspension?
AmazingPhil: Sit outside the principal's office and do the work there. If you get three internal suspensions in a term you get a classic suspension, I think.
I don't know, I've never had an internal.
danisnotonfire: aww, Philly's a good boy~ :D
AmazingPhil: Oh, shut up, Daniel.
danisnotonfire: whoa, full name, getting srs now.
AmazingPhil: Dan I swear to god
Dan laughed. Conversation with Phil was fun - he was one of the funniest human beings he'd had the pleasure to meet. Well, text.
But, of course, he wanted to meet Phil. More than anything.
danisnotonfire: okay, okay, I'll stop.
AmazingPhil: Thank you.
danisnotonfire: anyway, why'd you ask about the phone thing?
AmazingPhil: I was wondering if is be able to message you tomorrow, is all.
danisnotonfire: well, I'd love to, but I don't actually have any data for about a week, I'm using the internet at home rn.
AmazingPhil: Aw, damn. Oh well :)
danisnotonfire: I'm really sorry :/
AmazingPhil: Hey, don't worry about it ^-^
Dan didn't know how to answer that one, so he sat there, staring at the screen, numbly hoping that Phil would send another message.
At this point, he would probably give anything to skip school and keep messaging Phil. But life was really determined to screw him over, wasn't it?
Dan sighed. Now was not the time to be awkward.
His phone buzzed again, and he smiled as he saw another message pop up.
AmazingPhil: Daaaaaan are you okay?
danisnotonfire: like I said, I am now (:
AmazingPhil: Good, because I don't want you to be anything but happy.
You deserve to be happy, Daniel~
Everyone deserves to have their own happiness :)
Their own happiness? What was Dan's happiness - he didn't think he had one.
But of course that was a lie, he thought of one immediately - right where he was, talking to Phil.
AmazingPhil: What's your happiness, Dan? I'm curious :)
danisnotonfire: I'm not sure I have one.
Dan was a lying shit and he knew it, but there was no way in hell he was telling Phil any of this yet.
AmazingPhil: Come on, Dan, everyone has one.
danisnotonfire: no, seriously, I've never really had a "happy place" as they call it.
but, playing video games I guess?
AmazingPhil: There we go :D
danisnotonfire: what about you?
AmazingPhil: Buffy, anime, video games, mainly.
danisnotonfire: Buffy, Phil, really?
AmazingPhil: Buffy is awesome. Don't judge me.
danisnotonfire: hey, I'm not judging.
I'm the one that eats Maltesers all the time while browsing Tumblr and watching Studio Ghibli.
AmazingPhil: OMG Studio Ghibli is amazing :D
danisnotonfire: I KNOW ASDFGHJKL nobody I know watches it ;-;
AmazingPhil: O: that is a crime in itself, I swear.
danisnotonfire: Philly swore again, woo XD
AmazingPhil: OH FOR GOODNESS' SAKES, DAN.
danisnotonfire: I'm sorry, I can't help myself XD
AmazingPhil: Ha ha, Dan -_-
danisnotonfire: you're not mad, are you?
AmazingPhil: No, I'm joking, Dan, don't worry~
I can't be angry with you :P
Dan smiled at that, because he could never be angry with Phil either.
Their conversation continued late into the night, and when they finally said goodnight, Phil's beautiful voice was echoing in his head, and he fell into a peaceful sleep.
