Receving Mistakes

*Dan's POV*

I went to set up my camera for a new video, an Internet Support Group one to be exact. They were my favorite and least favorite videos to film at the same time. "Phil, where's the wine?" I waited for a couple minutes until I realized we didn't live together anymore.

I live with my girlfriend who I love.

I need to stop forgetting that, we are getting married.

I can't miss him.

I just can't, Angelina made me choose and I chose her.

I chose her.


I cleared my head of these thoughts and went to get the wine. Alone, without Phil. Godammit, brain stop being obsessed. You can't afford to think like this.

Now returned to my desk, with my camera and wine and got to work on my emails.

They were the usual, ones about love, social problems, or fangirling. I decided one more before I ended my video. Here we go!

I'm sorry Dan. I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier. Because I didn't want to ruin what we had. You don't feel the same way and I hate that but I needed to tell you. I'm sorry we can't have what you and Angelina have. I'm sorry I wasn't good enough. I'm sorry I wasn't worth it. Don't forgive me, don't call me and ruin what you guys have. I'm sorry. I LOVE YOU, and that is all Dan.


I couldn't see my screen anymore. I was bawling, I had let go of the boy who loved me. The boy who I loved. He missed me this whole time. And I never wondered why he stopping making videos or why the radio show was discontinued or why he was never on tumblr anymore. I ruined him, I crushed my real best friend.

And I needed to talk to him.
