Later that evening, Cry was the first to show up, as he was dressed casually. He knocked on the wooden door, smiling at the sign that hung off of it. A painted piece of wood, carved to look like a bunny holding a sign, proclaimed the message "Welcome". The man chuckled feeling a little creeped out by the distant eyes and the chipped of paint that made the bunny look a little unwelcoming.
The door opened soon, as a smiling Swede welcomed his friend in, "Cry! It's been so long, man!!"
The masked individual laughed lightly at his friend's antics, "I was here yesterday, Pewds."
"Yeah, and that was a whole day without your fabulousness around," the blonde laughed, hugging his friend, before Marzia did the same.
"You guys do know about that terrifying bunny on your door, right?" Cry asked, grabbing a beer and sitting on the cream couch.
Marzia turned to her love, "See? I told you it was scary."
The Swedish man merely waved her off, "Bunny Boo is a part of this family. She's not going anywhere!"
Soon, Anthony, Ian, and Kalel arrived, as Marzia nearly dragged the teal-haired woman up the stairs and gave her the gifts she'd bought for her friend.
"Oh my god, is this what I think it is?" The American laughed, as she pulled out all three 50 Shades Of Grey books. "Oh god, I need to show these to Anthony when we get home."
Marzia laughed happily, "Hey, you might want to… I don't know, try something?"
Kalel's eyes widened, as she blushed and hid her face, "Oh my god, no!"
Back in the living room, Toby and Jack arrived, as all the guys started drinking beer and laughing about their past experiences at VidCon.
"Oh, shit, did Toby ever tell you about that one fanboy who showed him his dick?" Jack laughed loudly, the others joining him.
"Hey, at least I didn't have a girl trying go make me sign marriage papers!" Toby retorted, as Jack's eye twitched at the memory.
Cry stuck his hands under his mask to wipe away the tears that had formed from all the laughter, "Oh, shit. That's hilarious -- you guys are hilarious. I wish I talked to you two some more."
Toby grinned, his cheeks tinted red, as he felt excited at the man's words. He'd always made an effort to talk to the masked man when they were around each other, but Cry usually seemed disinterested in speaking with his peers, rather preferring to be alone and listen to his music. However despite the man's distant nature, Toby felt a feeling akin to love for his fellow gamer. He couldn't explain it, but everything about the Floridian enticed him; from Cry's deep voice and slightly muscular build, to his intelligent thoughts and caring personality. The curly haired man didn't think he'd ever been so enthralled with merely being in the company of another, as he was with Cry, 'He's so perfect. I… I don't know what this feeling is, but I'm weirdly not scared of it. If it was love, I… really wouldn't be surprised, and if it was only general friendship, I would be perfectly content with it. Just as long as I am around him, that's all that matters.'
The man was knocked out of his thoughts by Cry tapping his forehead, "Hey, friend? You okay, there? You've been staring at my mask for a while now, bud. I mean… I know it's the best goddammed mask you've ever seen, but you haven't even blinked. It's starting to border on creepy here, man," Cry's grin could be seem under the mask, showing he was only joking, but that didn't stop Toby's eyes from going wide, as he blushed and looked down.
Pewdie, knowing about Toby's infatuation with his other American friend, called Ian and Anthony over from the door. The pair had gone out to "get the GOOD alcohol, not the shitty brands that they sell to college kids". The two joined the group and passed snacks and shot glasses around.
"I have an idea. Why don't we play a game? We can have rules, where everytime you say a word or do a certain thing, you have to take a shot," the Swede grinned, wanting to have some more fun with his friends that evening.
Cry immediately agreed, referencing to the many times he'd done the same thing with Scott and Russ on Twitch. Anthony politely declined, "I'd love to, but since Kalel's pregnant right now, I promised her I wouldn't do anything she can't do." The group all remembered the small lump under the Smosh t-shirt that the neon haired woman wore.
"Well, Chad Broseph Huntington isn't a whimp, so I'm all in, you dweebs," Jack spoke, his voice going deeper and taking on a pompous tone.
Ian laughed and nodded, "Sure. Besides, with Anthony sober, he can make sure we don't do something stupid, like make those shipper girls' dreams come true."
The group laughed loudly, Toby half-heartedly joining in, before everyone eagerly turned to him, awaiting the answer, "Um… sure. I see no reason not to," he shrugged, before everyone cheered him on and started getting things ready, 'I just have to follow the rules and not embarrass myself. Easy enough… right?'
