The Story of Dan and Phil
Phil had just set up the spare room, or rather Dan's room. He added the finishing touch by putting Dan's name on the wall in bright colours.
It was Thursday evening; Phil sat down on the sofa and turned on the TV. He flicked through the channels and stopped on ITV2. Endless repeats of The Jeremy Kyle Show were on.
"Why is Adventure Time never on anymore?" he said to himself. Phil could feel vibrations coming from his iPhone in his pocket. "What do you want now Samantha?" he laughed to himself thinking about a joke from one of his videos. He took out his phone and looked at the flashing screen 'Dan ' it said.
"Hey Dan! Ho-" he was cut off by Dan's screaming voice.
"PHIL, QUICK! HELP ME!" Dan screeched.
"Dan! What's wrong?
"Just get to the shopping mall now!"
"Why? What's happened?" Phil screamed almost crying.
"Just get here as fast as you can and go to the ser-" the phone call was cut short. Phil grabbed his keys and ran out the door.
15 minutes later ~
"Dan? DAN? Where are you?" Phil had just arrived at Manchester Shopping Mall and he ran around to the service entrance to see Dan slumped against the wall.
"OH MY GOD DAN!" Phil screamed running to his friend "Dan, Dan! Speak to me! SAY SOMETHING!"
"Phil, stop being such a pussy!" Dan joked "I got mugged, bastards!"
"Seriously Dan! I thought you were dead!" Phil said starting to laugh. The two boys laughed together.
"Come on, let's get you back to my apartment" said Phil trying to hold back the tears, although one or two escaped.
"Err, Phil, if I could move I would" laughed Dan.
"Jesus Dan!" said Phil with a smile "Remind me again why I'm your friend"
"Oh shut up!" Dan said and the two boys laughed again and Dan saw a glint in Phil's eye that he'd never seen before.
"Come on then, let's get you to a hospital." said Phil, helping Dan to his feet and putting an arm around him. Dan hobbled along beside Phil trying to keep up with him.
"You're such a good friend Phil" said Dan, gripping Phil's shoulder giving him a hug.
~ 2 hours later ~
"We're home Dan!" smiled Phil, unlocking the door.
"Wow Phil, I've always liked your place and now I'm going to be living here!" said Dan in awe.
"Well, the only thing is, you've nothing with you tonight." replied Phil "But I'll take you over to your house in the morning to get your stuff and I'll give you a pair of my PJ's for tonight"
"Thanks" smiled Dan hobbling over to the sofa on a pair of crutches. It turns out he has a broken leg and a sprained wrist.
"Hey, want to watch a Kill Bill DVD?" asked Phil walking into the room.
"Sure!" replied Dan "What one's do you have?"
"Dan, how long have you known me?" laughed Phil.
"Oh yeah, I forgot!" smiled Dan "How about starting from season 1?"
"Sound's good!" Phil said and went to his room returning with a pile of Kill Bill DVD's. He put on the TV and sat down beside Dan.
About half an hour later, Phil started to feel cold.
"Hey Dan, I'm just going to get a blanket" Phil walked out and returned with a huge blanket big enough for two people.
"Do you want some Pom Bears?" Phil asked.
"You know I can't refuse Pom Bears Phil!" Dan replied "How about putting a couple of bags into a bowl?" said Dan
"Good Idea!" said Phil cheerfully "Do you want some Pimms too?"
"I want to get Pimmsed off my tits!" exclaimed Dan
'You don't know how much I want you right now Dan Howell!' Phil thought to himself while pouring two glasses of Pimms.
Phil re-entered the room with a bowl of Pom Bears and the two glasses of Pimms.
"There you go Dan!" Phil said handing him one of the glasses "One Pimms"
"Cheers Phil" replied Dan chinking their glasses together.
So Dan and Phil ate, drank and watched hours of Kill Bill. Until they both reached for the last Pom Bear. Their hands met and they both retracted awkwardly. There was a long silence.
"Well that was awkward!" laughed Dan.
"Very!" agreed Phil laughing.
"I think it's time for bed" Dan yawned.
"Yeah, you go on ahead and I'll clear up out here." Phil said, stifling a yawn.
"Night!" they said together and Dan hobbled off to his room.
Phil cleared the living room and kitchen, turned off the lights and left the living room. Before going into his room, he opened Dan's door to check on him. He was fast asleep.
"Sweet Dreams my love!" Phil whispered then went to his room.
