The next day, I sat on the sofa scrolling through Tumblr as I watched Attack On Titan. I know, typical me.
"Hey Dan", Phil said as he walked into the lounge, "I'm meeting up with an old friend from university today. Leah isn't awake yet, but could you please let her know where I am when she wakes up?"
"Sure thing", I smiled.
"Thanks, Dan", Phil smiled, "See you later".
"See you", I said as Phil shut the door behind him.
I know Phil told me not to date Leah, but I was finding it hard to follow that rule already.
No you can't date her
Phil trusts you
This would kill him
Not to mention destroy your friendship
I took a deep breath as I tried to accept the fact that Leah was off limits.
"Good morning", Leah yawned, catching me off guard.
"Oh good morning. Did you sleep well", I said.
"A lot better than last night that's for sure", Leah smiled as she came and sat down next to me on the sofa, "What about you?"
"I slept alright", I said, hoping that my cheeks weren't turning red.
For the next few minutes, we sat on the sofa in awkward silence. Then suddenly, Leah got up and started walking around the house. She looked in the kitchen and then went down the hall to look in the rooms.
"Where's Phil?", she asked as she re-entered the lounge.
"Oh he's meeting an old friend from university", I said.
"Oh. Mkay", she said as she sat back down on the sofa.
As the two of us sat there and continued to watch Attack On Titan, I couldn't take it anymore.
I had to ask
"Leah, would you like to go on a date with me?", I asked quickly.
"Dan", Leah said as she got up, "You know I'd love to, but Phil..."
"Who cares what Phil says?", I said, grabbing her wrist.
Did I really just say that?
"But Dan, this could destroy him", she said, shaking her head.
I stood up and said, "Just because he's your older brother doesn't mean he should hold you back".
Leah took a long pause before she responded.
"Well...we have to be super careful", she said.
"So you're saying yes?", I smiled.
"Yes, but Phil absolutely cannot find out", Leah said.
"Of course not", I smiled, "So, would you like to go to the cinema?"
"Wait, you mean now?", she asked, raising her eyebrows.
"Why not?", I shrugged.
"Well, alright", she smiled, "I'll go get ready".
One thing I loved about her was the way her smiled accentuated her dimples.
So as Leah ran off to the bathroom to freshen up, I went to my bedroom to get ready as well. I threw on a Fall Out Boy t-shirt and some black skinny jeans. To accompany my black socks, I put on some black shoes. Typical Dan fashion.
I straightened my hair because I wasn't about to go into town with my "hobbit hair". Right after I unplugged my straightener, I walked out of my room and found Leah waiting there for me.
"Ready?", she smiled.
"Absolutely", I smiled back.
Leah and I took a cab to the cinema and decided to go see Sinister 2.
After the movie was over, we decided to walk back to the flat.
"That was truly terrifying", Leah said.
"I agree. Which part scared you the most?", I said.
But I got no response. All I heard was a whimper in pain that I assumed came from Leah. So I turned around and saw that she was being pinned to the wall by a man.
"Hello. What might your name be?", he asked as he got closer to her face.
"Please...let me go", she whimpered as tears began to stream down her cheeks.
"Oh but where's the fun in that?", he winked.
"Piss off, douchebag", I said angrily as I shoved the guy off of Leah.
"What's you're problem, mate?", he growled.
"Right now, you're the problem", I said, pointing at him.
Next thing I knew, his fist had connected with my jaw, sending me to the ground.
"This isn't over", he said angrily.
"Dan, are you alright?", Leah asked as she helped me up.
"Yeah, I'm fine", I said, "Where'd he go?"
"He's gone, Dan. Don't worry", Leah said.
Leah and I reached the flat at 5:00 pm and Phil still wasn't back.
"Good thing we got back before Phil", Leah said.
"You got that right. I'd be a dead man", I chuckled.
"Dan, you better clean up your face. Your lip is bleeding", Leah said.
I touched my lip with my hand and I winced in pain. Sure enough, there was blood trickling down my chin. So I went to the bathroom and dabbed it with a warm washcloth.
Then I heard the door open.
"Hello Leah", I heard Phil say.
"Hi, Phil. How was your day?" She asked.
"It was good. I got to see an old friend which was nice. Where's Dan?", Phil said.
"He's...he's in the bathroom", Leah said.
"Hey Phil", I said as I walked into the lounge.
"Hey Da-what happened to your face?", Phil said as he looked at me with wide eyes.
"Oh. I...um...I fell in the shower", I said as I crossed my fingers behind my back.
Phil narrowed his eyes at me and gave me a look that said "You're hiding something and I know it".
After a long pause, he said, "You really need to be more careful, Dan. Anyways, I'm going to have a shower". Then he disappeared down the hall.
Leah took a deep breath and said, "That was a close one".
"You got that right", I nodded in agreement.
