Chapter Twenty Three

We entered a place called 'ShakeAway'. I'd heard of it before, maybe even dreamed of having a date with him here. He lead me to the counter, and stood there.

"What do you want?" He asked, "They have a lot of options, but knowing you... I'd suggest a-" I really don't know what he said, I actually got caught up staring in his eyes and smiling.

"So, you think you know what you want?" He asked a minute later, I nodded.

"The, uh, one you suggested," I answered.

"Alright, I'll order," he said, "How about you go get a seat."

"It'll be outside then," I said walking off.

I sat down outside and started to scroll through my phone. Twitter sounded good, I hadn't been on that in a while. I tapped the little writing icon and made a tweet.

@KnightsOfTheInternet : a surprise guest and I have been trying food all day, expect a video by the end of the week

I sent the tweet and scrolled through blindly.

"Holy shit," someone gasped nearby, "It's actually you-" I thought that Dan was coming back and they saw him, until- "Gwen Archer! KnightsOfTheInternet!"

I looked up to see a short (my height, ha) red-haired girl, she gaped. I laughed and stood up to hug her.

"Hi," I said, "I'm Gwen, and you are?"

"Kimberly!" She said, "I'm a huge fan, I've been subscribed to you since you started. This is the best moment of my life."

"Aww, thanks," I said, "I don't normally meet long time fans."

"Can I have a picture please?" She asked.

"Of course, I'll take it," I offered.

She handed me her phone, I smiled, adjusted my glasses, then took the picture.

"Thank you so much," she said. Her phone buzzed, she looked down and frowned, "I have to go, thanks for everything!"

"Of course!"

She ran off and I went back to scrolling through twitter.

"Heyy," Dan said, he set a yellow and blue cup in front of me, "Try that."

I looked up from my phone and picked up the cup. I took a sip, and quickly set down the cup.

"What is that?" I asked.

"It's banana, lemon, strawberry, skittles, sour skittles, strawberry cheesecake, bubblegum, and fanta orange," he said, "Do you not like it?"

"I love it," I said taking another sip, "It's heaven! What did you get?"

"Maltesers, butterscotch, and flake," he laughed adding, "Also known as the Dan."

I laughed and took another sip of my shake.

"Take me here more often," I said.

"Oh, anything you say Queen Gwen," he chuckled.
