Movie Date

"Hi," Luke said into his cell phone. "Did you just get off work?"

"Yeah," Reid's voice said on the other end of the line. "And I have a late shift tomorrow, so you maybe want to go catch a movie?"

"Like a date?" Luke asked, smiling though his lover couldn't see it.

"If that's what you want to call it."

"Sure. I'll meet you at the theater. See you soon." Luke hung up the phone and left the Snyder farm.

Ten minutes later, Luke was standing on the ticket line, waiting for Reid.

"Hi. Sorry," Reid said, walking over to Luke who was next in line. "Bob cornered me just as I was leaving."

"It's fine. What movie do you want to see?"

Having made their choice, Luke and Reid walked towards the theater where it was playing until Reid abruptly walked up to the counter of the concession stand.

"Reid, the movie starts in ten minutes!"

"You go ahead. I'll be in in a minute." Indeed, a minute later Reid walked inside the darkened theater and over to Luke, his arms laden with a bucket of popcorn, a box of candy, and a soda.

"Aw, you got me candy," Luke said quietly reaching out for the box, as the previews started on the screen.

"This? No, this is all for me," Reid said, popping a handful of popcorn in his mouth and opening the chocolate. Luke chuckled and grabbed some popcorn anyway.

Two hours later, Luke and Reid were walking through Olde Towne, Reid complaining hotly about the movie. "There's no way that could have happened in real life. Medically, it's not possible that a person would come back to life because their true love kissed them."

Luke laughed. "Well, obviously it can't happen for real. That's why it's a movie. Most people won't see them if they're too real."

"I guess that's true," Reid conceded as they came to a stop outside the Snyder farm.

Luke smiled and said, "How about next time we just go to dinner?" Reid nodded and kissed Luke before he left.
