He looked around but,there was no one present,even though Zeke was supposed to be waiting for him.
Sean's pale blue eyes scanned the room for a while longer when suddenly,he was knocked off his feet and slammed back into the stairs.
It hurt like hell but,someone was suddenly on top of him.
None other than Zeke,of course.The blonde draped the red jacket over both their heads,just a lip's distance away.
"Zeke! What the hell ar-" their foreheads met shortly and he was silence by that along with a "Shut up." from the blonde.
He gazed back at Sean,with life in his eyes for the first time in months."I've told you Sean,I love you."
The black haired boy went pink."Yeah,yeah.Get off me,asshole." He muttered,glancing away.
It wasn't the first time he'd heard Zeke sing this tune but,it wasn't changing his mind one bit."Sean." Zeke ordered for him to look back at
him once more.He did so,only to be met with a rather sudden kiss.
"I love you.I want to give myself to you." Zeke stated after their lips parted.
Sean gave the same glare he always gave when Zeke pulled this.The look that told Zeke 'I don't like you' though,that was quite the lie.
"You're lying to yourself.Just what is it about me that you can't accept." Zeke continued,sparking a bit of Sean's interest.
"I'll change it,I'll fix it for you."
That seemed to be the one to throw Sean over."Goddammit." he muttered before returning the kiss.
Then,it was sex again but,it didn't feel the same as it usually did.It wasn't empty this time.
After a shower,they both sat on the tattered couch,Zeke smoking a cigarette provided by Theo.The small window by the basement roof cracked open to let out the smoke.The blonde draped his arm over the back of the couch and his calm,almost emotionless aura returned.
"So?" He finally said after a while of silence."So what?" Sean replied with a puzzled glance.
Zeke took a puff of his cigarette before replying."Ya gonna tell me you love me?" he asked.Sean pouted,obviously trying to keep a straight face.He couldn't exactly think of a smart comment to spit back."That wasn't part of the deal." was the best he could do.
Zeke adjusted his position on the couch and slouched closer to the other."But,you do."
"So what if I maybe do?" Sean turned away some more.The blonde leaned back again,blowing more smoke into the air."You're hopeless." he sighed.
That night,Zeke hardly slept.He thought that day would have been the hard part but,he knew very well the next would be much harder.
He could lose everything he'd suddenly obtained all at once.Then again,he guessed that's the risk you take with 'this love stuff.'
