Hey guys! This is a bit of Pepsicola (if that's what it's called) for the Homestuck fans. What? You like Homestuck? Only on act five, but close enough. Tell me if you like it!
They sat there, at lunch, laughing and talking like they didn't have any problems. They being, him, Rose, Jade and Dave. John had a problem though. He had found out just a few days ago that he was gay. He needed to find out how, and if, he should tell them. He didn't have any way of knowing how they would react, so they might hate him.
He was snapped out of his thoughts by Dave's elbow poking his ribs.
"Huh, John? Isn't she hot?" he asked, leaning in so Jade and Rose don't hear him. His warm breath tickled the other boy's neck, making him breathe a little quicker. He looked at the girl in question. She wasn't bad looking, but if you looked closely, she had on about five pounds of makeup, dyed blonde hair, and she had stuffed her bra.
"Eh, not really," he said, going back to picking at his food.
"C'mon, are you gay or something?" he asked teasingly.
"No," he replied, too quickly and forcefully. Dave looked at him, probably curiously.
"You are, aren't you," he whispered in John's ear. He started to hyperventilate a bit, and hoped that Dave didn't notice. But, curse his luck, he did.
"I knew it. Probably have a crush on me, don't you."
"NO," he said, a bit of desperation seeping into his voice.
"Yes you do. I can hear it in your voice. The way you start to breathe a bit quickly when I whisper to you, the way you stumble into walls when you see me." The boy blushed, trying to hide his face behind the sleeves of his oversized hoodie. Dave reached up, gently but firmly forcing John's hands down, holding them together with his own. He looked up with embarrassment, a violently blushing.
He leaned over again, trying to get a reaction. "The way you stare at me with that smile when you think nobody's looking. How you laugh harder at my jokes that anyone else does." He scooted closer, nearly sitting on Johns lap. His heart was pounding so hard that Dave could feel it as he pressed his chest against John. He had a scarlet blush on his cheeks, trying to wiggle his hands out of Dave's grip to escape.
This only made Dave smile. "How nervous you get within two feet of me, like you're dying to kiss me but think I'll hate you for it." He was so glad that Jade and Rose were busy talking about something else. "Whenever I compliment you, you blush, and try to hide your face, like you're doing now." He felt John trying to squirm away from him. He held the other boy's hands tighter, still feeling John's heart give quick and uneven thumps.
"You really just need to admit that you're in love with me," Dave finished, finally letting go and scooting back. John's hands immediately went to his face, burying himself in them. He heard quiet noises from him. He left him alone for a minute, looking in disappointment at his cold food. Oh well, this is more important.
John tapped his shoulder and he turned, immediately getting kissed. They pulled back, simultaneously touching their bottom lips in a daze. Then they were back to kissing. It started to get heated, and they were interrupted by two female squeals of glee. John jumped back about a foot before realizing who it was.
Rose and Jade sat with twin looks of fangirl. "Go on, don't let us stop you," Rose said, waving her hand dismissively. They looked at each other, grinned, and got back to where they left off, ignoring the phone pointed at them by Jade.
They didn't notice lunch was over until Jade and Rose reluctantly had to physically pull them off of each other.
"Just so you know, I got all of that on camera," Jade said. "I'll give it to you after school."
All in all, a good day.
