Under Streetlights

Bright Lights and confessions.

Adam and Don had been friends for a while now.

Adam confesses his undying love to Don, under a street light in the middle of the night.

A street light, light pole, lamppost, street lamp, light standard, or lamp standard is a raised source of light on the edge of a road or path.

Similar lights may be found on a railway platform.

When urban electric power distribution became ubiquitous in developed countries in the 20th century, lights for urban streets followed or sometimes led.

Hi, welcome this is a safe place for you to be yourself and love who you are.

So I hope you have slept well, eaten enough today, staying hydrated, and getting enough time outside.

This is now your happy place.

If someone ever reads this, tell me how your day was.

Well and another daily reminder that you are a beautiful smart little muffin and I hope you have a wonderful day/night or evening, whatever you prefer.

And feel free to request if you want.

But I only do fluff, because my heart can't take pain right now.

/) have a nice day and stay safely hydrated.

Third-person

Adam and Don were just walking.

As you do.

Following where ever their feet took them.

Adam always had trouble sleeping at night and Don loved to wake up at random hours and raid the fridge.

So they both were up at three in the morning walking down the street at least three or four feet apart.

Don and Adam were pretty close, but they weren't all hugy and lovey-dovey with each other (that will change), so they kept their distance from each other.

Adam all of a sudden stopped and sat at a bench under a streetlamp.

"Why did you stop?" Don asked in a confused tone of voice.

"Come sit. I will tell you," Adam said as he patted his lap.

"I'd rather sit on the bench and not on your lap," Don said as he booped Don's nose and sat next to him.

"What did you want to tell me?" Don asked confusedly.

Adam sighed as he put his elbows on his thighs and put his face in his hand.

"I have had a lot of things on my mind recently," Adam said.

"Elaborate more. What kind of things?" Don asked, intrigued by his best friend's unusual behavior.

Adam wasn't usually one to get serious with stuff and usually just joke around, so seeing him like this confused Don a lot.

"Well, school has been on my mind a lot. Schools getting easier, but the people are getting harder to deal with and it's making me mad. Why can't everyone keep to themselves? What I am going to do after school has been on my mind a lot. Like I'm not sure what to do with my life right. Do I wanna settle down and have a family or do I wanna travel the world?" Adam questioned and then he continued to rant.

"You're on my mind a lot. That's why I have had trouble sleeping lately. I am too nervous that if I don't act fast someone might snag you. And I'm scared that you might die when I'm sleeping or something. That one of my worst fears. Losing someone who was dearest to me. It's crazy to think that we have been friends so long and I'm just starting to think...ugh, never mind. It's a bad idea,"Adam's rant was cut short as he stopped what he was saying.

Don grabbed Adam's cold hand in his warm hand.

That caused Adam to look at Don in confusion.

"What are you starting to think Adam?" Don asked as he tilted his head and looked into his light brown eyes.

After a while of silence passes over Adam begins speaking again.

"I don't know. It's a stupid idea. I think, uh, maybe, I want to be a little more than friends. You're so cute and kind all the time and you make me so happy when you text me good morning, or you ask me how I am doing, and you care so much. Not to mention your body. You're just so perfect in all places. I love it. You have such a babyface, and I want to kiss it. I want to kiss...you." The pair lock eyes and the sound of careless whisper plays as they lock lips just as they locked eyes.

Their kiss was cut short when the pair had to breathe (disgraceful, how dare you have to breathe during a super cute make-out session).

Adam let out a sigh of relief as he saw Don smile and look at him.

"You taste like a subway sandwich," Don said with a giggle as he moved his hair out of his face.

"You taste like cherries," Adam said as he admired the boy like he was the most prized thing in all of the land.

They both start laughing as they get up and head to their next destination.

"May I take you out on a date, sir Donny?" Adam said as he walked in front of Don and took his hand and kissed it as he bowed to Don.

Don laughed and smiled. "Of course you may," Don said with a smile.

And just like that, they were on their way to have a four in the morning date at a cute playground on the beach (I combined them see what I did there. I am a smart cookie).

Don's face lit up under the streetlights as he saw the beach and the playground.

He quickly took off his shoes and ran across the sand to the dimly lit playground.

Adam smiled as he slowly followed him.

They played on the playground for a few hours until sunrise.

"Look at the sunrise, cutie," Adam said as he sat down next to Don.

"It's so beautiful. I haven't seen one since I was young," Don said as he watched all of the colors form in the sky, becoming a beautiful masterpiece of what we call the sunrise.

"It's just like you," Adam said with a smile as he watched Don flush bright red and cover his face.

Silence consumes them as they watch the sunrise with awe.

"Hey Sap?" Don asked.

"Yes?" Adam said as he down at the boy with a smile.

"Does this mean...we...are dating?" Don questioned as his face flushed a bright red color once more.

"Only if you want, cutie," Adam said as he wrapped an arm around Don winked.

"Well, I want us too," Don said as he pouted and crossed his arms over his chest.

"Then we will," Adam said as he kissed Don's forehead lovingly.

That's how the story ends. This was really fun and easy to write.

Eh, whatever. Stay safe and toodles!

Ya, that's about it.

If anybody reads this, you request if you want.

Bye, and always remember this is a safe place for you to be yourself and love who you are.

So I hope you have slept well, eaten enough today, staying hydrated, and getting enough time outside.

This is now your happy place.

If someone ever reads this, tell me how your day was.

Well, and another daily reminder that you are a beautiful, smart little muffin, and I hope you have a wonderful day/night or evening, whatever you prefer.

And feel free to request if you want.

But I only do fluff because my heart can't take pain right now.
