Number I: Wait

Lex comes out of his dingy apartment around the same time every morning. Ryan is always waiting for him. He always cringes when he sees Lex's high cheekbones painted ugly shades of blue and purple. Lex stops in front of him, impatient and not meeting his eyes. Ryan smiles and swings his arms, knowing Lex cannot stand to be touched. Instead, Ryan looks at him, taking in the extent of the damage. He doesn't want to hurt Lex's pride, so he simply says:

"I can't wait to see the other guy."

Lex smirks and starts towards their school. Ryan grins.
