*School Dance*

Chapter 20

Tonight was the night of the school dance and both Squall and Seifer were happy that they'll be going together. They had been waiting for this day and now that it's here they were ready for it. Though, they were a little nervous about going. Although, they didn't care what others thought of them in the least, but they were still nervous. This was their first dance together.

Seifer still couldn't believe that he'd be going to the dance and with Squall no less. He was immensely happy. He was the happiest he's been in a very long time and it was all thanks to his boyfriend Squall, who he's glad he has. Sometimes he would still think he was dreaming or something. Seifer thought it was hard to believe that's all. Seifer wouldn't change anything at all about his life now, as it is going the way it should be going now.

Ever since that little incident with Jared though, Squall has been sticking closer to Seifer, not that Seifer minded, though. He knew he could handle himself, but it was nice that Squall was there for him. Well, it had been easy going since Squall put him in his place last time. They have had no more problems with Jared or his friends. For that, they were happy.

Now, it was time for the school dance and they were there having a good time. Squall and Seifer had their first dance and it was amazing to them. Squall was now dancing with their friend Quistis, which was okay with Seifer. Squall was a good dancer to say the least. Seifer was impressed that he could dance so good. Seifer wasn't bad either, he was pretty good too, and he knew it.

Squall was dressed in a black suite and a nice pair of slacks, in Seifer's eyes he looked amazing. His hair was colmed back with some strands in the front, making him look even more good. Seifer was wearing a white suite and same color slacks. He had spiked his hair a little, but Squall liked it like that. Seifer couldn't take his eyes off of Squall, he looked so good.

Right now Seifer was sitting at a table drinking some punch. Zell was sitting next to him. He had brought Quistis as a date, but she wanted to steal Squall away for a bit to dance with him.

"Think they'll get tired of dancing?" Seifer asked Zell, looking at him.

Zell laughed a little. "Maybe. You just want to dance with Squall again, doncha?'"

Seifer huffed and crossed his arms, a small blush on his cheeks. "Maybe. What's it to ya, Chicken-wuss?" Zell rolled his eyes at his friend.

"Ah, I think someone's jealous." Zell teased him, making him scowl, but the blush was still there.

"Shut it, Chicken-wuss. I am not."

"Suuure." Zell drawled with a smirk. Seifer glared but let it drop.


"Asshole." he countered.

Seifer looked up as Squall and Quis were coming towards them, effectively cutting off further bantering. He smiled as Squall came over to him and gave him a small kiss. "Hey."

"Hi. How was dancing with Quisty?" Seifer asked Squall, kissing back.

"It was alright... I guess." She smacked him on the arm for that little remark.

"I resent that. You know you had fun."

"Yeah, yeah. Of course I did." Squall smirked at her.

"Anyone ever tell you you're an asshole?" Quistis asked, casually.

"Hn, so I've been told." That caused them all to laughed a little.

"Quis? Would you like to dance with me?" Zell asked her. Suddenly.

"Sure. Let's go." He grabbed her hand gently and led her to the dance floor.

Squall looked at Seifer, they were the only two left at the table. "Are you having fun, babe?"

Seifer looked over at Squall and gave him a smile that made Squall melt. "I'm having a very good time, Squall. Being here with you is very fun."

"I'm glad. I like being here with you too." Squall admitted to him.

"Yeah." They were silent for a moment, thinking of something to say. It wasn't an awkward silence though. Truth is, this was the best night of their lives. They couldn't be happier.


"Yes?" he looked at Squall with his green eyes that Squall always got lost in. Fuck, he had the most beautiful eyes Squall has ever seen.

"Would you care to dance?" Squall asked with a smile.

"I'd love to." Seifer could feel his heartbeat speed up when Squall came over to him. Squall led him onto the dance floor. Once they were there, his hands went around Squall's shoulders and Squall's were around his waist.

"This is nice." Seifer commented in whisper.

"Yeah, it is."

It was a slow song right now. Squall held Seifer close to him, and Seifer put his head on Squall's shoulder. To them, they didn't want this night to be over. They were so wrapped up in their dancing and each other.

They have been through a lot this school year, so they deserved this happiness.

"Squally?" A female's voice said from behind him.

"What do you want, Rinoa?" Squall asked, tiredly. He didn't give a shit right now.

"Dance with me?"

Seifer lifted his head from Squall's shoulder and gave her a cold glare. "He's not dancing with you Rinoa."

She in turn, glared at him. "That's for Squall to decide." she hissed.

"I'm dancing with my boyfriend, as you can see. I don't want to dance with you so go away." Squall said coldly with a smirk.

"What?" She screeched.

Quistis saw what was going on and glared hard at her. "Hey, I'll be right back okay?"

"Okay." Zell said, watching what she was doing.

She went over to where Rinoa was and tapped her on the shoulder. She's had enough of this. She needed to leave Squall alone. She wont let this bitch ruin their night.

Rinoa turned around. "What do you want?"

"I want you to leave them alone. You will not ruin their night. I suggest you leave, now."

"What if I don't want to?"

"Then I make you, simple as that." Quis said, firmly. Luckily, they weren't causing a scene.

"I want to dance with Squall."

"He don't want you, Rinoa. He has Seifer. Leave them be." She grabbed Rinoa's arm and drew her away from them. She took her to a table and sat her down. "Bother them again, I'll make you leave this dance. Am I clear?"

Rinoa was scared at the look Quistis was giving her and nodded.

"Good." with that she walked off over to Zell, leaving Rinoa to fume.

"Thanks Quis." Squall said as she passed them.

"Don't mention it. I was very tired of her and she needed to learn."


"You two enjoy your dance now."

"Of course." Seifer said with a grin.

After a few more dances they decided to sit down.

"Tired?" Squall asked his boyfriend. He had an arm around Seifer's waist.

"A little. I'm having a great time though." Seifer kissed his cheek.

"I know, me too."

"I swear the Chicken-wuss could go for hours." Seifer scoffed as his friend was dancing wildly on the dance floor.

Squall laughed at that. "I think he can too."

"I mean, I think he's on something. Or maybe his just got something wrong, which I have been thinking for a while now." They both laughed at this.

"Probably." Squall agreed with a chuckle.

Zell was doing a dance that suspiciously looked like the robot now.

"Oh god..." Seifer moaned at that.

Squall just shook his head.


"Hn?" Squall quirked a questioning eyebrow at him.

"I really am having fun tonight. I'm glad I came with you."

Squall smiled at that and hugged him. "Me too. I wouldn't want to be here with anyone else but you." He said, sincerely.

"I know. I wouldn't want to be here with anyone else either." They smiled at each other.

"We'll have to do this next year too."

"You read my mind." Seifer chuckled.

"I love you Seifer."

"Mm, I love you too, Squally." They kissed for a moment then smiled.

This was the how their night should be. Full of love and closeness. Neither of them wanted the night to be over anytime soon.
