Was It A Date?
Chapter Four: The Date
Conner parked the car and they hopped out at the theater.
Conner quickly made his way to Ethan's side and they walked towards the front of the building.
They saw a film about a serial killer trying to get all of the female cops on a LNPD team and wound up getting caught by the last member alive.
"Man that was the dumbest film I have ever seen!" Conner said laughing as they walked out of the movie theater.
"Worse than the one Kira drug us all to about girl's taking over and making the males weak and helpless 'as they had been?'" he asked, quoting Kira.
Conner laughed. That was one movie he would never watch again.
"Lord no!" he said through laughs.
They made their way back to the car and Conner opened the passenger side door for Ethan causing him to raise an eyebrow. Conner just shrugged his shoulders as he shut the door and went around to the driver's side, and got in, starting the ignition.
They drove in a comfortable silence for a while until Conner spoke.
"You feel like getting a bite to eat?" he asked as they pulled up to a red light.
Ethan smiled the tension of the night broken.
"Sure. Where at seeing as we are not dressed for anything other than fast food." Ethan said smirking, "by the way nice shirt."
Conner laughed as he realized they wore mirror images on their shirts except the color.
"How about we swing by the Cyber Café then?" Conner asked, going out on a limb. It would mean people would see them together. People they knew.
"I'm game. Haley does make a killer smoothie." He said as he reached out and took Conner's free hand.
Haley's Cyber Space
Conner and Ethan found a table close to the back of the room. Trent came over a few minutes later to take their order.
"Hey guys." He said as he smiled. "You guys want the usually or something different this time?" Trent asked a gleam in his eye.
Conner and Ethan shared a quick glance at one another before they placed an order.
"Two cheeseburgers, fries, and the normal drinks." Conner said speaking for both of them.
Trent nodded as he wrote it down and then took the menus that where set on the table.
"I'll take a wild guess and say one ticket and try and keep Haley and Kira away?" he asked with a odd smile on his face.
Conner and Ethan blushed and nodded as Trent gave them a nod and then walked off to place their order.
The rest of the evening went by pretty quickly for the two of them and finally they headed back to Conner's house by unspoken agreement.
Conner and Ethan got out of the car and made their way into the house and up to Conner's room when Conner's mom stopped them in the kitchen.
"Hey boys." She said
Both boys jumped almost out of their skin at the sound of her voice.
"Hey mom. Don't do that you almost gave us a heart attack." Conner chided as he stepped over and turned on the light.
"You boys have a good time?" she asked as she caught site of their matching shirts.
Conner and Ethan muttered something about a good time under their breaths and Conner found a quick escape.
"Hey mom. Is it alright if we go watch a movie? He may end up crashing." Conner said as he glanced at Ethan to make sure it was ok. Ethan gave the slightest nod of his head.
The two boys made their way up to Conner's room this time without any distractions.
As soon as the door closed to his room Conner wrapped an arm around Ethan's waist and pulled Ethan flush against him.
Ethan tensed at first but then relaxed after Conner began to kiss his neck slowly. He allowed Conner to pepper his neck with kisses but suddenly he pushed Conner off of him.
"Hey Eth. What's wrong?" he asked as he wrapped his arm back around his waist.
Ethan glared at Conner and Conner began to get more worried.
"Eth what's wrong? You know you can talk to me." Conner said as he placed his hand under his chin
"This is some sort of joke isn't it? Get the geek to fall in love with the jock and then you tell me it isn't real, It was all a dream." Ethan said as he pushed Conner's hand away.
Conner sighed. He didn't want to do this but if Ethan left him no choice.
He grabbed Ethan by the shoulders and pinned him up against his door, careful not to hurt him, and then did something to shocked Ethan. He kissed him with every ounce of love he had held inside of him for years.
When he pulled back he saw Ethan smile as he rested his head on Conner's shoulder.
It had been a date after all.
