Ah, prom night. Not something I was looking forward to.
I sat at my desk with an elbow on it and my chin resting in my palm. I watched as Ness walked around his room, getting ready to go. Oooh... God, he looked amazing. Right now, he had on some black dress pants, a white button up shirt, whose sleeves were rolled up to his elbows so they wouldn't get in the way, a black bow tie, and a black vest. He had his hat on too, of course. I can't tell you how many times I sighed dreamily, just gazing at him.
I guess he noticed, because he smiled and walked over to his desk. He sat down and copied my position, then gave a mocking sigh. I blushed and looked away, "Shut up," I said.
He chuckled, "Just messin' with ya. Hey, you going tonight?" he asked.
I looked back at him and shook my hand, messing with my fingers on my desk, "No, I can't. I've gotta study,"
"Ah man, that sucks..."
We were both quiet for a moment, but Ness looked down at the watch on his wrist, "Well, I gotta go," he said, standing up. He grabbed his black tux jacket that was hanging on the back of his chair but paused. He took off his hat and looked at it then set it down on his desk.
My eyes widened slightly, "You're not taking your hat?" I asked. It was rare for Ness not to wear something on his head, especially his lucky hat.
"Naw," he said, looking down at it. He smiled back up at me after shaking out his choppy black hair, "Not tonight," I gazed at him. To be honest, he did look so much more handsome without it, especially with how he was dressed. He tapped his fingers on his desk for a moment, watching me watch him, "Well, I guess I'll see you later," he said, "Don't have too much fun without me,"
"Yeah..." I said softly.
He stood there a moment then rubbed the back of his neck in a shy way, something he never really did, "I wish you were going tonight," he said. My eyes widened a bit at this, feeling those butterflies in my chest. I didn't say anything; I couldn't. Ness stood there watching me then turned and walked out of his room, turning off the lights.
I sat at my desk for a long moment, but then it hit me. What the hell was I doing? Was I really that stupid? Did I seriously just let that sexy man of my dreams walk away, looking at hot as he did when he said he wanted me to go to prom? I felt like banging my hand against the wall a million times, but I didn't have times for that.
I jumped out of my seat, sending my rolling chair flying back. I ran to my closet and started to go through it, then pulled out the suit I had bought for prom before Ness started to date Paula. I laid the bag on my bed and unzipped it, then pulled out my tux. It wasn't anything special; it was black with a white button up shirt and a green bow tie.
I threw off my PJs and quickly dressed in my tux then duck around my closet for my dress shoes. I stumbled to put those on as I grabbed my wallet and keys. I hurried out the door and towards the school.
When I got to the school, I started to get nervous, like I wanted to turn back and go home, forgetting about my plan, but I wasn't going to let myself do that this time. Not tonight. Maybe some time in the future, but not tonight.
I walked to the door to the gym and gave them my ticket. Yes I bought a ticket, all before Ness started to date that whore. Once I was inside, I walked around uncertainly, messing with my fingers and rubbing the back of my neck. I felt so shy and uncomfortable in the large crowd. What if I couldn't even find Ness? What if he was here with someone else? What if he didn't want to see me? No, he said he wanted me to go, so god damn it! I was going to find him! Even if I had to search the entire gym the entire night!
I took a few deep breath to try and calm down. I looked around as I moved towards the crowd of people, tugging on my jacket every now and then. I had almost given up hope on finding him after a long time had passed. I was about to turn and just leave, forgetting everything I had planned and thought of, but then I saw him. He was sitting in one of the chairs off to the side, leaning forward to rest his elbows on his knees. He was messing with his fingers, looking bored and a little sad. The sadness made me frown, but I put on a brave face and started over to him.
I stopped at least five times, almost backing down, but I wouldn't let myself do that. Not tonight. Maybe sometime in the future, but not tonight. My heart sped up as I got closer, and my breath quickened. I had to keep wiping my hands on my pants because they were all sweaty. The moisture in my mouth disappeared and my throat went dry. I really hoped I didn't sound like a frog when I spoke. I stopped when I was about five feet away but took a deep breath. It was now or never.
I walked up to him and touched his shoulder, "Ness?" I said.
Ness's eyes widened and he looked up at my in complete shock, "Lucas?" he stood and turned to face me. I blushed when he looked me over, feeling those butterflies in my chest again. He stared at me like I was the most amazing thing in the world for a long moment before speaking. "What are you doing here? I thought you said you weren't coming!"
I shifted from foot to foot and messed with my jacket and fingers, "I-I um... well, I just... I kinda... W-well, you see... It's like... You... I... Th-the thing is..." I stuttered then looked down and took a deep breath. I rubbed the back of my neck, forcing myself to say what I was going to say. I forced my eyes back up to his beautiful cobalt ones, "Ness, I..." I bit my lip. Why was this so frickin' hard? I lit a girl's hair on fire for heaven's sakes! Why can't I just say it?
"What is it Lucas?" Ness asked, tilting his head.
I made a little sound then grabbed both of the other's hand in mine and before I could stop myself, I spoke, quickly. "Ness, I've liked you for a really, really, long time. Ever since we were nine years old. A-And I mean, really like you. Like, you drive me crazy. I feel like I'm going to explode when you just smile at me! And I think you're so handsome and the sweetest guy I've ever met! I-I was going to ask you to go to prom with me, well, probably not because I would have chickened out but I would have done something! B-but then you started dating that bitch and I was so heartbroken and dead inside but I didn't lose hope! I just kinda... kept really quiet about how I felt about you and tried not to show it but I can't hold this in anymore! I feel like every day that goes by, I'm losing my chances at telling you all this! I can't stand not being next to you, or see you smiling face, or to hear you laugh! I-I guess what I'm trying to say, because I just keeping going on and on and on and you probably think I sound like a complete idiot and you probably just want me to shut up and go away because I'm just some stupid gay kid with a giant crush on his best friend in the entire would, and I'm starting to sound really stupid! And what the hell am I doing? Oh my god!" I looked down again but kept going, "No! I'm gonna say it! I-I... I...!" I tried to say but Ness cut me off in a very unexpected way.
I felt his hand under my chin and he lifted it up. I looked at him with wide and watery eyes, so scared to hear what he was going to say, but that's just it. He didn't say anything. Instead, he smiled at me and leaned down. Holy crap, I thought I was going to die. I felt his lips against mine and I gasped, my heart stopping for a moment. He had his eyes closed but mine were wide opened. He stayed like that a moment then pulled back and looked down at me.
"You talk a lot, you know that?" he said. I would have apologized, but I was too busy gapping like an idiot to do much of anything else. He put a hand on my cheek, "Lucas, you're not just some stupid gay kid. You're the bravest gay kid, ever," he said.
"No I'm not," I choked out.
"Yes you are. Hell, you're a lot braver than I am. You had the guts to come in here and say everything I wanted to say but never could,"
"W-wait, what?" I said like an idiot, as I looked up at him.
Ness let out a chuckle and I felt his hand on the back of my head, "Look for yourself," he said then touched his forehead to mine. I gasped as his mind flooded into mine. I saw that he too liked me just as much as I liked him. He didn't know why he went out with Paula in the first place. I blushed darkly at how cute and adorable he thought I was, and how he much he wanted to kiss me right now.
Slowly, I pulled back, breaking the connection our minds had. I stared up at him with wide eyes but I couldn't help but give a giddy smile, which I now knew he loved, "Y-you think I'm cute..." I said, sounding stupid, but I knew he would love it.
"I do," he said, wrapping his arms around my waist and pulling me closer to him, "And you know what else I think?"
I smiled and wrapped my arms around his neck, "Y-you want me to shut up so you can kiss me?" I asked.
"How'd you know?" he asked, giving me that smile that made my stomach to back flips as he lifted my chin up a little.
"J-just a lucky guess," I said softly. He looked down, almost shyly, but then looked back at my eyes. He didn't say anymore but instead, he leaned back down and pressed his lips against my own. I closed my eyes, feeling like I was going to melt, but I'm pretty sure I did when he moved his lips against mine in a way I couldn't believe. He wrapped his arms tighter around my waist, holding me to his chest as we kissed. I wrapped my arms more around his neck, bring him closer to me. My heart was beating so fast, that I had to gasp in the middle of our kiss, but he just kissed me with an open mouth. I groaned, flushing dark at the fact that I did, but I only felt a smile on his lips.
I'm not sure how long we stood there, just like that, just kissing each other, but Ness was the first to pull back. I gasped for air when he did, not realizing how badly my body needed it. He was panting a little too, so I didn't feel all that bad. Our faces stay close together and he gazed down at me with the most loving gaze I've ever seen, and it made me blush.
"Do it," he said softly, making me blink in confusion, "Go ahead, touch my hair. I know how much you want to," I blushed darkly at this, knowing he was able to read all my thoughts and secrets about him too. I smiled some though and reached up, running my fingers through his hair slowly. "Soft as you thought it was?" he asked.
"Yes..." I said softly then pulled his head down to kiss him again. He let out a chuckle through his nose but kissed me back.
We continued like this until that annoying voice spoke up.
Ness made a little annoyed sound deep in his throat but pulled away from me. He turned and looked to see Paula standing there in the skimpiest dress I'm sure she could find. She also had long blonde hair, so I'm guessing she was wearing a wig, which made me smile. Ness kept his arms around me as he gave her a dark look, "What?" he asked. I kept my arms around his neck and watched her. Her eyes widened when she saw it was me he was making out with and she didn't know what to say for a long moment. "If you've got something to say, say it. I'm kinda busy here," Ness told her.
Paula looked up at him again but then gave him that fake sweet smile that made me want to gag, "I wanted to apologize for yesterday," she said, "I don't know what came over me. It was wrong of me and I should never have let a wonderful guy like you walk away from me," she put a hand on his arm and I made a very unhappy sound, which made Ness smile. I felt him pull me closer, if he could, and I smiled, resting my head under his chin.
"Sorry Paula," Ness told her, "But I don't date fucking whores," Paula's eyes widened at that and I smiled more.
"But I-..." she started but Ness waved a hand at her.
"Go away! I'm busy! Go ask some other guy to fuck you," Ness told her and I couldn't help but laughed, burying my face into his chest so it wouldn't so notice able. Ness noticed though, I'm sure of it.
Paula's mouth dropped open, but she crossed her arms, "Well, what about all those other times we had sex?"
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that this is moment where I break down into tears and run away, but I did. I knew she was lying to try and get me to do that. I lifted my head and looked at her, "You two never had sex," I said to her.
She looked at me, "How would you know?"
"I know everything he does," I said, running a hand down his cheek, getting him to smile at me, "Because his mind is mine,"
"Just like the rest of me," He said, turning his face to nuzzle into my hand.
I smiled, "Just like the rest of you..."
Paula watched but she glared, "Fine! I don't care!"
"Good," Ness said and turned his head to look at her, making me put my arm back around his neck, "Then go away," he smirked and snapped his fingers, sending her hair alight. She started to scream and panic, running away. I gasped, my eyes widening, but I put my hand to my mouth and laughed.
"Oh my gosh!" I shouted between laughs, "Did you really just do that?"
"Yup," Ness grinned down at me, "I got the idea from this sexy guy I know,"
I blushed at that and smiled up at him, "Does that sexy guy get another kiss?" I asked.
"That sexy guy gets as many kisses as he wants,"
"Good, because I never want to stop kissing you," I said then brought him day for another kiss.
