Even in shades of darkness, Alex was beautiful beyond words. Soft shadows only working to further enhance the gentle features of his face. I was so infatuated with every detail. It was hard to think of him as being real. Hard to believe that he was willing to smile at me the way he does. Seriously, like...what is going on here?
It wasn't so much my wanting to kiss him, but the fact that I had to use every last ounce of will power I owned NOT to kiss him that gave me the biggest thrill. I had so little experience with the act of kissing itself, but I had dreamed about enough times to know that I'd figure it out without any hiccups once I got started. But WHEN? WHEN???
"So, you guys wanna go do sumthin'?" Preston asked, instantly breaking me free from my love starved trance before I did something irrational right in front of him.
"Oh. Ummm...I don't know. I'm so used to having to find something to do outside of school that I never really considered having fun while I was here." I said, still gazing into Alex's dreamy, light green, specs. Don't kiss him, don't kiss him, don't kiss him...
"I'm sure we could find some way to have fun in this place." Alex smiled, his voice laced with a hazy sensual tone that nearly caused me to dip at the knees. "Maybe we should look around some more? Check stuff out. See what we can find." Alex made sure to let me know that he was talking to me directly. My inches started to harden faster than I could get control of them. Hehehe, whoah...is my heart pumping enough blood to my brain? I'm feeling really dizzy here!
Preston, forever cheerful, said, "Well, I'm not from around here! I'm sure everything will be new to me!"
"Uh huh..." I mumbled.
"Yeah..." Alex giggled.
I don't think Preston understood, but he kept chit chatting anyway. "I came all the way from Valley Oaks. It's a private school. Well...it was a private school. Not anymore, I guess. Do you guys have a gym? Can we play ball or something? Or do you have a swimming pool? Valley Oaks had an awesome swimming pool!" We were a bit too enchanted with one another to answer him at first, but he just kept going. "So this is public high school? Wow! Like real public school. Do you guys get into fights, and have alcohol parties, and see girls who got pregnant, and stuff?"
Alex's cute little forehead furled up a bit, and he had to laugh a bit at what he was hearing. "Hehehe, what?"
"Oh, well...I mean...you know. Public school? I was home schooled before, so I just kinda have to go by what I see on TV." He said. There was a moment where he looked as though he felt a bit embarrassed by his assumption, but Alex didn't let the feeling linger for him.
"No drugs or gun shots around here, dude. At least not at MY school. You'd have to ask Jake here, seeing as he's the expert on this place."
Preston turned to look at me, and I said, "Nothing more serious to report than a few detentions and a couple of kids falling asleep in class, Preston. Sorry to ruin the fantasy."
He grinned, and he said, "Awww, it's ok, Jake. I'm glad it's fun here."
"Yeah. Lots of fun." I sighed. Alex and I kept making brief moments of eye contact, playing this flirtatious game of chicken as we both secretly wished for a little privacy. Don't get me wrong, I liked Preston! If nothing else, it was kind of fun having him around for shits and giggles in the compound. But...for right now, I would love nothing more than to spend some quiet time with my blond sensation and exhaust every method at my disposal to get him to let me shove my tongue down his throat as far as it'll go and vice versa.
Alex seemed a little bit nervous, but...his naughty little smirk was broadcasting his desire to work through it. The sad thing is, this is the farthest that I've ever gotten with another boy before. Everything from here on out is new territory for me. Scary territory. I didn't know whether to play it cool, giggle like a little kid on a sugar rush, or run away in terror before I screwed it all up forever. All I knew was that I was mesmerized by the beauty of his gaze, and I was SO ready for more! SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOO ready! Hehehe!
"I know!" Preston yipped suddenly. "Let's go up and watch them shoot zombies from the third floor! We can bet on who gets splattered next! Like....DOOSH!!!"
Not wanting to be mean, I said, "Maybe a bit later, Prez."
Alex's eyes met mine again. Just for a lingering second or two. And I giggled before I could stop myself. Oh man, this is making me woozy!
"M'kay! We can find something else to do if you want!" He said.
At this point, Alex asked, "Say, Preston...I think me and Jake are gonna walk around for a little bit. If you don't mind."
"Nah, I don't mind." Preston said, quickly following it up with, "Can I come too?"
Alex and I held our eye contact for a split second longer than before, and it was a clear signal that 'things were going to happen' between us the moment we found a place to be alone. So I breathlessly said, "I don't know if you want to come along, Preston. It'll be boring."
"Not as boring as walking around by myself until curfew, I'll bet." He smiled.
Alex and I started walking toward the doorway with Preston practically nipping at our heels. Alex asked him, "Say, aren't you hungry? Maybe you wanna raid the vending machines down by the cafeteria somewhere."
Preston was quick to sling his backpack around and start digging in it with his head down. "No need, you guys! I've got some good stuff right here! You want some?" He went rummaging through that thing like a hyper raccoon while I sighed from the slight frustration of not getting him to take the hint. "Here we go! You guys are free to have some! There's NEVER a time when it's not a good idea to keep free CANDY on you!"
He was following us down the hall, step for step, and all I wanted was to mash my lips up against this beautiful boy while the affections were still running wild for the both of us. That's when Alex gave me a really subtle wink, and he said, "Actually, you know what, Prez? I almost forgot, the on-site nurses wanted to give us a few safety vaccine shots tonight before curfew. Which sucks,but we've gotta do it. Rules, you know?" Then he gave me a subtle look to tell me to back him up on this. "I mean, I don't like needles any more than you do...but we don't want to start having a good time and then have them come looking for us, right?"
I chimed in with, "Yeah. Not in the middle of our fun."
Already, Preston's knees started shaking. Alex said, "Hey! Why don't you just come with us to the infirmary for a few minutes and wait for us to get our shots, and then we can all roll out together? Sound like a deal?"
I said, "That'd be cool, Prez! I mean, you've already had your shots for the day, right? I'm sure they won't give you any more. At least, I don't think they would. Not unless they thought you were a threat to in house security or something."
I heard Alex hold back a few snickers, causing me to hold back a few of my own. Preston's eyes opened wide, and he meekly responded with, "Uhhh...you know what? You guys can go do....'that', and then you can come find me later, ok? I don't need to go walking by that place. Not me. They don't like me very much over there."
"What?" I grinned. "C'mon! It'll be fun. They're not gonna do nothin'."
"Tell that to my sore booty!" He said. "Unh unh! I'm not gonna let them make a pincushion out of me! I'll catch up with you guys after." He said, and my heart began to flutter with excitement as I realized that Alex and I were just moments away from being alone together. Just MOMENTS! "Um...one thing though?"
"Can you show me back to the sleep section? I've been wandering around so long that I kinda forgot where I started from." Preston asked, a little pout on his lips.
Alex chuckled and rubbed Preston on the top of his head. "No worries, dude. We'll get ya back to where you need to be." Our eyes met again, and we all left together. Is this it? Do we just drop Preston off somewhere and then come back to kiss? Omigod...I'm shaking. The sides of my cheeks hurt from the utter joy that I was feeling at that moment. I was afraid that if I started smiling that I'd begin laughing maniacally and never stop. Let's go! C'mon! Walk faster!
Finally taking Preston back to our makeshift barracks, there was a moment where he almost seemed like he didn't want to part ways with us. We stood in the hallway through an awkward pause, Preston rocking back and forth on his heels as though he was going to have to say goodbye to us forever. "You guys really don't need to get any shots, do ya?" He asked. "That's no fun."
I told him, "Yep. Right over there. You sure you don't need some for yourself? We could ask them..."
"NO!" He whined. "Will you guys come get me after?"
"Of course we will. We'll come find you." I said. He almost looked like he didn't believe me. "Promise, ok?"
"Hmmm...m'kay then." He stood there watching us, a suspicious gleam in his eye. I think he honestly thought we were trying to ditch him for good. That wasn't my intention just....AHHHHH, I'm gonna make out with a boy for the first time ever, and I need him to find something to do for about an hour or something!
Oh wow...an hour of kissing. Can people kiss for an hour? I'd love to find out.
Preston took a few steps away, but seemed to be watching to see if we actually went into the doctors' set up to do what we said we were going to do. So Alex and I said good bye and headed to the door while Preston actually stood there to watch. Hehehe, he really wanted to make sure we didn't try to run off and have fun without him.
We went inside and stood just inside the door. We'd have to wait a minute or two for him to be convinced and walk away before we could go back to our private little spot in the darkness. So close. So very very close!
The doctors and nurses were too busy to really pay us much attention. Everybody had to get checked out multiple times before being fully admitted, and then they came back multiple times for further monitoring. You certainly couldn't blame them for being thorough. I don't think anyone even has any idea what really happened to the world or why just yet. Where it started, when it started, or why. Until they figure out some kind of origin for the outbreak...all of humanity is basically a cluster of lab rats, being poked and prodded for answers that we may never find.
