fakeanditate: and the way to end an anniversary weekend is dress up like a captain and steal the style of the original captain, julian bunetta
"Andi…" Jayce was about to start his response, but instead paused to look down at his chair and then around at the restaurant, silently cursing the fact that they weren’t at home. There he would be able to curl up into the boy’s space and slow everything down so that it was just the two of them. Instead, they were separated by a blindingly white table that he waiter was now helping clutter more by bringing them a basket of bread and then asking for their orders. "I’m sorry, we’re not quite ready yet. Can we have a few minutes?" Flashing his signature grin, Jayce managed to get their space back down to two in seconds. "Andi," his attention was back on his breathtaking boyfriend in front of him, reeling his train of thought back to where it was before he got distracted. "First of all, forget the watch thing ok? It looks wicked out of the box and finally on you, which was all I needed in the first place. Secondly, and you’ve caught me in a good mood here because I would never admit this on any other day of the year, I love it when you come up with ridiculous names to throw at other people." He gave the other boy’s hand a small squeeze of reassurance to show his lightheartedness. "I honestly don’t know where they come from, but they put a smile on my face every time."
There was no way in hell that Jayce would want to be any of the others dining around them because he was sure that the adoring stare that they were stuck in was disgusting. He couldn’t thank all the higher powers for the rest of their bandmates to be elsewhere then, knowing that if they were present there would be pictures galore and no doubt Aaron jabbing at them one way or another. Instead, this time they were interrupted by a small girl walking up to them shyly, what looked to be here Mother trailing behind. Instinctively Jayce took his hands away from Andi’s, focusing all of his attention on the little girl that was now twisting in her spot in front of their table shyly. ”Hello there,” Jayce’s voice turned up higher as a way to seem friendlier to the youngster. ”How’re you doing?” She looked between Andi and Jayce before letting out a small ‘good’. ”What’s your name love?” Her eyes were transfixed on Jayce, “Elizabeth.” ”Elizabeth, come on sweetie, we don’t want to disturb the boys. She wanted to come over and say hello.” Jayce smiled graciously at the woman, then back down again. ”It was very nice to meet you Elizabeth. Do you want to take a picture?” She nodded quickly causing Jayce to immediately take the napkin out of his lap, set it on the chair and kneel down next to her small frame, assuming Andi would follow suit.
Andi looked up as he heard his boyfriend say his name. The older male paused and Andi waited with both a sort of patience and anxiousness for the other male to speak up again. When the waiter came over to their table and caught Jayce’s attention, Andi avoided eye contact with the waiter and shifted in his seat again. No matter the amount of time he was in The Infinity for, Andi still wasn’t good around people and it was even worse when it was people he was meeting for the first time. However, when it came to events and such, he put on a brave face and pretended that he wasn’t freaking out on the inside that he had to meet random strangers or even other celebrities. It was always easier when he knew his boys were always around him, but even making simple eye contact with waiters freaked him out a bit. Despite not making eye contact with the waiter, he knew Jayce would take care of it and be friendly for the both of them so he reached for the bread put on the table. The bread was his main focus until he heard Jayce call his name again, his gaze rolling up to meet his boyfriend’s. His nodded his head, agreeing to Jayce he would forget the watch thing, and stuffed his face with more bread. “I’m flattered you wouldn’t have admitted that.” He raised an eyebrow at Jayce. “They’re dumb, but glad you’re smiling about it. You were the first person I called a donut.” He smirked at his boyfriendly playfully.
He hadn’t really expected anyone to come up to them while the two were off in their own world, but at the same time he kind of expected it. The boys weren’t really able to go out anymore without a couple fans coming up to them, whether it was for a photo or autograph. When a little girl approached their table, Andi smiled at the little girl before looking up at her mother and greeting her briefly while her daughter spoke with Jayce. It didn’t surprise Andi how well Jayce was with children, but it still made him swoon and heart flutter whenever he got to witness it. It made him think about how one day it could be Jayce with their kid and how fantastic of a father he would, putting both their fathers to complete shame. Realizing he was getting lost in his thoughts, Andi quickly broke out of them and followed Jayce’s actions to kneel down beside Elizabeth. When it came to the younger fans, it was a bit easier to let them do what they want during the photo. They were still aggressive as the teenagers sometimes, but they were more soft with their actions and it made Andi more comfortable to wrap an arm around the little girl and bring their faces close together for the photo. He wasn’t really paying attention to what Jayce was doing, attention more on making sure the fan got a good photo and good experience. The little girl was pressing herself close to the pair and Andi could feel her grab on to his fingers that was gently holding her waist. “Big, gigantic smiles, yeah?” Andi said to her, his smile matching her bright one. “We can even make a silly face for another one so you have two, okay?”
You know you can always count on me. All the dirtbags are youngsters, but the others might not be as willing to help out. Yeah, but the press can get tricky and just somehow find their way around it. And I think someone mentioned that if we banned certain questions about you lads and word got out, people might think we’re fighting or something stupid. Yeah, I don’t think Dunc’s always liked Eth pulling strings for him though. He just wanted to do his thing, you know? He’s grateful obviously, but it gets frustrating for him. Thanks, man. As long as I’m playing music with the boys, I’m happy. Yeah, it’s insane! Are you going to make him plan some prank where our shirts get caught on something?
I don’t think for a second Duncan would help me out. Mason is a big maybe. They’d probably try to bring up the tour and then slip in Ethan somewhere rather than the whole band. They always have a way around things, honestly. We could hug and people would create rumors we’re in a fight. People want drama out of nothing most of the time. I’m glad he’s not one of those brothers that lets the frustration ruin the friendship between them. Do you think he’s talked to Eth about this though? That’s what I always say! I’m always happy knowing I get to do what I love to do and be with me best mates. I can’t further discuss anything about me talking to the evil mastermind.
See! She was just helping you out, so Ethan’s got nothing to hold over you. I don’t know. I’d be a bit worried about her if she thinks you’re a good girl or just a girl in general, but maybe that’s just me.
But I still think she wanted me to know I’m a good girl so I think he’ll always have something to hold over me. I was a little surprised when I got it. She didn’t even change it to boy so it could fit me better!
It’s just gonna get worse and worse, mate. Sorry to break it to you. Yeah, he gets annoyed with it, but it comes with the territory. He still loves Eth, obviously. It just must be frustrating when you want people to talk about your music and they seem more interested in your brother. Yeah, I mean, I we’d probably still be in his garage if it weren’t for you lads, so I don’t mind. Getting recognized is still so strange! Like, I’m just trying to get some socks. You might even be lucky enough to witness it in person!
Are you going to at least help me with my old age? The only one in the band younger than me is Ethan so I’m not sure how much help I’ll get. Isn’t there a way to ban people from asking any questions or talking about Eth that doesn’t involve the tour? I don’t really see how this is fair for any of you. There is an upside to being Ethan’s brother and that is a lot has to do with Ethan pulling strings for his brother, but you lads are massively talented and I’m positive this would’ve happened one day anyway. They’ll think you buying socks is the coolest thing too! I’ll talk to Ronnie to make that happen, actually.
Maybe she thought you were Drake and gave it to you accidentally. Or, she’s a huge fan of Drake and you boys and she made one for you with lyrics from What Makes You Beautiful, but accidentally gave that to Drake, so you got the one meant for him instead. Or, she just really wants you to know you’re a good girl.
Maybe this was her attempt to let me finally meet Drake! We could meet up and exchange the right gifts to each other and then I’d cry a little bit and scare him off. It’d be perfect, honestly. But then I don’t think life is that fair to me so she probably wants to let me know I’m a good girl.
