Dan P.O.V.
I awoke on a day like any other...although something was incredibly different. There was something next to me. Better yet, someONE. This was odd. In an attempt to push myself off the mattress, I was pulled back down, a squeak echoing through the still dark room. What time was it? 3:54 am. That explains why the moon was still brightly shining through my window. Who could this person be? I turned over only to realize I was nose to nose with my best friend. Phil Lester.

I simply had no clue why he was here or when he climbed into my bed, but I wasn't thinking about that. At the moment, I was lost...more like entranced by his slow breaths. The soft touch of his skin against mine was enough to make my heart race. His black, fringed hair had a silvery glow as it reflected the light from the sparkling stars. (A/N: none of this stuff where they question sexuality. You are what you are and there's nothing wrong with it.) His small features twitched as if he could tell I was watching him. His bright blue eyes slowly fluttered to a position where he was staring back at me. He blushed lightly and smiled. It seemed to light up the room a bit more.

"Hi Dan," he said innocently, still staring at me. It took me a second to respond. I was so lost in his shimmering eyes. They resembled sequins.

"Phil..." I said slowly, trying to add a hint of my sarcastic tone. That's how a lot of people seem to remember me. "May I ask why you're in my bed?"

He yawned and stretched before replying with a giggle,"I had a nightmare, Dan. I couldn't sleep on my own. I wanted to ask, but you looked so peaceful. I didn't want to wake such a calm and quiet Dan, so I crawled into bed next to you. Sorry for waking you." He gave me that dumb, yet adorable, innocent smile again.

"It's fine. It's fine. Phil, what was your nightmare about?"

He looked at me now with sorrow. "I just woke up one day, and you were gone. It was like you didn't exist. Your YouTube channel was gone, nobody knew who you were when I mentioned you. Not even you parents! And I...I just....felt so lost."

I sighed and gave him a small hug. "Phil. Why does my existence matter so much to you? You're the one who saved my life in my darkest times remember?"

" gave me someone to save. Without you, I'm nothing. Your existence is my existence. We depend on each other to keep going, you know?" He now had tears welling up in his eyes.

Why couldn't I just tell him? I needed to tell him! He needed to know how I truly felt! "Phil I..." I paused. I don't know if I could do it.

"Yes, Dan?" he quietly sobbed, looking up at me.

"I do understand. Phil, I need you just as much. Let's make a pact."

He grinned slightly through his silent tears. "Like what?"

"To never. Ever. Leave each other. No
matter what. Deal?" I asked, holding my hand out for him to shake.

"Deal." He replied, smiling and shaking my hand. I lived for his smile.

Okay. I'll say it. It's official. I, Daniel James Howell, am in love with my best friend, Phil Michael Lester.
A/N: Hope you liked the first chapter!

I don't think there's gonna be yaoi in this one. But if you want it, I'll make other fanfics (non Dan and Phil of course.)

If you liked it, go comment. Next chapter will be Phil's POV.

So yeah. I give you all virtual hugs and I'll see you next chapter.
