Marissa's POV

I gripped at the sheets where Nathan had been laying previously. Nothing but sheets. I cracked my eyes open and let my eyes adjust to the bright lighting of the room.

Leaning up, I suddenly realized I don't know my way around their house. The second I stepped foot in the house, I was dragged into Nathan's room, so I didn't exactly get a tour of the house.

Maybe if I just wander around long enough, I'll find my way to him.

I slid myself out of bed, and opened the creaky door to Nates bedroom. I was instantly met with the smell of bacon.

I guess I'll just follow my nose, then.

I wandered around until I heard Nathan and Destery talking. They were standing in front of a pan with sizzling bacon.

"Good morning guys." I said sleepily, and rubbed the sleep out of my eyes. They smiled and offered food to me, which I gladly accepted.

"I'll leave you two to do.. whatever." Destery smiled and headed off into the living room.

"How'd you sleep, beautiful?" Nathan kissed my forehead and rubbed my back.

"I slept fine I guess. Woke up without you next to me though." I crunched on bacon.

He shrugged.

"What do you wanna do today?" He asked, while cleaning off his plate in the sink. I figured I should head home and get my things since we now live here for a while.

"Can we head back to my house to get my things? I have a cat, by the way. If it's cool to have her here?"

"Completely fine. When you wanna go?" He asked as he dried his plate.

"Whenever you'd like."

"So I was thinking we could do a tag video?" Dan asked. He had just set up the camera and lights in front of the hotel bed. I shrugged.

"I don't care. I'll do whatever haha." I swept my hair out of my face.

"Well I have a bunch of stuff for punk edits if that's okay with you? They're left over from Phil and I's punk edit video." He threw a few tattoos at me.

"Fine by me." I felt them with my thumbs.

"Though i don't think it'll work so well on me considering I already have my lip pierced." I laughed.

"Hey no worries, I already have my ears pierced if that counts haha." He pointed at his ears.

"That doesn't count, nerd." I laughed.

"Well let's get this started!" He sat down on the bed next to me after turning the camera on.

--

"Wow.. That was something." He remarked, pulling the fake nose ring out of his nose and pulling the sleeves off his arms.

"It really was." I agreed, pulling off the fake gauges. We laughed as we scrubbed at the fake tattoos with a sponge.

"You seem a lot more comfortable now." He remarked, and turned the camera off.

"Yeah, well my boyfriend was really afraid that you might have tried something." I said with a bit of hesitation.

"Oh my, haha. I promise, you don't have to worry about that." He laughed a bit.

"You calling me unattractive?" I laughed and pushed his shoulder.

"Not at all Kaitlin, hah. It's just that I'm taken by someone else already." What? This is news to me. In his videos and social media he claims to be single.

"Well.. If you don't mind me asking, with who?" I asked, crossing my legs.

"Oh, well this is a known thing between YouTubers, just not so much fans. Phil and I are and have been dating. As of 4 years ago." I looked at him in awe.

"This is news to me!" I laughed. "Hey, no judgement there. I think it's quite cute actually." I smiled.

"Thank you haha. Some people find it really weird or whatever." He looked down.

"Don't be ashamed of your relationship with Phil. Your fans and every other YouTuber out there would be nothing but supportive." I reassured him.

"Thank you Kaitlin." He smiled in my direction. "Well uh, considering it's only around 5, would you want to get dinner to end this day?" I nodded.

"How does a double date sound?" I asked, with a sarcastic smile on my lips.

"Sounds good, actually. I'll call Phil and you can call your boyfriend." He smiled, and got on his phone to call Phil. Oh. Well looks like I can show Destery that there's nothing to be worried about anymore.
