▷ The Two Best Friends That Anyone Could Have || “Jan” plus Blaze cause Dan loves puppies.
Since the road bump in his relationship with Nat had worked itself into a bigger issue than he thought it would be, him and James had been getting back to usual, their old habits picking back up. If there was anything good coming from the situation, it was the rekindling of their brotherhood and his growing closer to Riley. He would only ever admit it to James, but he already felt more feelings with her than he knew he should. After all, they weren’t anything, she was just some fun to get his mind off his shit relationship, right? Wrong. Somehow she started his way into his heart already, and she was constantly clouding his thoughts. Right now, he needed a stress release and James’ and Sofia’s puppy sounded like the perfect distraction from his distraction. He lazily pulled a t-shirt over his head, for once he ignored the rack of long sleeve shirts. He didn’t have to hide who he was anymore, he was done living by Natalie’s long list of rules and he just honestly didn’t care anymore. Yes, he does heroin, and if she can’t accept that, it’s her problem. He sighed, running a hand through his hair as he grabbed his keys and shut his door quietly. God forbid he woke anyone up on his floor, everyone but Damien was an asshole and he didn’t feel like dealing with them right now. He took the steps by two, cringing at the too familiar scent that the stairs had had since their freshmen year when they dared some tool to take a shit in the stairwell. The smell hasn’t been the same since. He laughed at the memory, shaking his head at the way they used to be and smiling at the fact that they were getting back to that.
“I have arrived,” he shouted, pushing through James’ door and swirling into the room with a chuckle. “OO, puppy,” he kicked the door shut quickly, plopping down on his butt and welcoming the dog into his lap, laughing while dodging it’s “kisses”.
“Where did you even find it,” he asked, looking over the dog at James and cocking an eyebrow.
