5 – Dinner by candle light
It was a few weeks after Richie had accepted his feelings for Eddie and since then they had been closer than ever, chatting away the days idlely and just generally having a good time. They got to know the lesbians across the road, and the more time they spent with them the more Richie liked the sound of homosexual life. Even the bars sound better! Most days they wouldn't even bother leaving their flat, they'd just sit and wath tv for a few hours. It was during one on these sessions the power went out. The dinner in the microwave stopped rotating and the two men were plunged into darkness
"Aww it was just getting to the good bit!" Eddie groaned. Richie nodded and sighed, getting up to see to their dinner. He couldn't see much in the dark
"Light some candles will you Eddie?" He asked, lighting the hob which was luckily gas operated. Eddie grunted in response and did so. Richie managed to half save their dinner and set up the table, and they sat down.
For ten minutes or so they ate in a pleasent silence, but then Eddie laughed to himself
"What?" Richie asked, wiping his face out of instinct. Eddie smiled
"We're eating a dinner by candle light, very romantic" He smirks and winks. And then his face becomes serious, something Richie had never seen before. "Actually Rich, it's that I want to talk to you about."
"I fancy you."
"You what?" He asks, half daring to let himself hope. Eddie's hand on the table was shaking with nerves. Rich swallowed and placed his sweaty hand onto Eddie's. Eddie looked up from his plate and met his eyes. A glint appeared in his eyes
"I want to have sex with you" He replied perfectly calmly. Not the romantic sentance Richie had been hoping for, but not a bad start.
"Could you not think of something a little more romantic Eddie" He snapped at his friend who looked out the window in thought.
"I want to have sex with you...please?" Richie just rolled his eyes and went to his room. He could here Eddie rushing after him and smirked, shutting the door behind him firmly.
