“Team,” he begins, putting on a confident voice. Sapnap gestures with his hands as he speaks. “Today, we go to war—”
“It’s laser tag, Sapnap,” George interrupts.
Quackity laughs and Sam shoves his shoulder. “Shut up, let him do his thing. You know how he gets.”
Puffy stifles her laughs with the back of her hand.
Sapnap gives George as rude of a glare as he can muster, only for the expression to turn into a lopsided and small smile with furrowed eyebrows. For added effect, he scrunches up his nose and sticks his middle finger out at the British boy. George flips him off in return.
“As I was saying,” he begins again, resuming his pacing. He can’t keep the laughter out of his voice. “Dream always says he’s gonna play fair, but we’ve been doing this for long enough that we all know that’s not true. Do whatever it takes to win… I don’t wanna lose this one.”
Sapnap and his friends have a tradition of playing laser tag every Friday after school. This game, however, the stakes are higher than before and Sapnap does not want to lose. He finds himself rambling nonstop to ease his anxieties.
Sapnap falls in love with George at parties and in coffee shops, over poetry quotes and cups of hot chocolate. And George falls in love, too, quickly and beautifully. But it’s not with Sapnap.
It’s with Sapnap’s best friend.

- Part 2 of love lies bleeding
“So,” she starts, one hand holding her bag and the other coming up to rest on Sapnap’s shoulder. “How long have you two been together?”
He’s taken aback, uncomfortable under her touch and wanting to brush her hand off his shoulder, completely and utterly confused by her words. Together? Does she think they’re dating?
Sapnap starts, “oh, we’re not actually—”
Dream cuts him off. “We’ve known each other for about nine years, but got together four or five months ago.”
What the fuck?
Dream invites Sapnap on a seemingly innocent vacation aboard a cruise ship. Sapnap realizes that Dream's family is under the impression that their relationship is much more than just friendly. He also realizes that they have to keep up the lie for the entire trip.
“As if I don’t mean it every time? Sorry I don’t just apologise for breathing like some people, but in my opinion that makes it more sincere.”
Again, there’s that venom that splashes the bystanders as well, cutting straight to bone and Sapnap’s bleeding, wounded and vulnerable from words George knows applies to both of them. And yet here he is, here they both are, acting like he doesn’t exist while he sits not three feet away from them.
“I’m fucking sorry?”
“Oh I’m sure you are Dream, you know-”
“Fuck you, George, I don’t have to deal with this!”
Dream and George won't stop fighting, and Sapnap gets stuck in the middle.
