IS N/A


It had been a long time—too long if you asked him. He had followed the proper social protocol and waited the appropriate amount of time before worrying that he didn’t get a call back. He even didn’t bull rush the situation and send multiples of messages with a variety of different ways to say ‘hello’, and instead kept his cell phone securely in his pocket, assuring himself that it will come. Unless the vibrations called his attention, it remained quiet and untouched, only ever taking it out on occasion to check the time and maybe will a message to appear when he put it on the charger. But even after everything, after all the waiting and self-assurances, the call never came… the message never appeared in his inbox. And as time ticked by, Chase couldn’t help but wonder if what he had done, if everything that had transpired between him and Theo, was perceived differently by the ginger. If it was all for naught. Sure, things had happened with the aid of liquid courage… and Chase could understand how it might have looked insincere when you sat down and thought about it. But even then, shouldn’t they have sat down and discussed that? Instead of, well, pretending it didn’t happen and the other didn’t exist? Or maybe it was something completely different. Maybe Theo was the sweet innocent type on the outside who was really an evil bitch face on the inside who used him for all the fun sexy times they had in their alcohol induced haze. And after the morning of snuggling and doing nothing, he left with no real intention to ever call him or text him again! The thought was laughable, and made him chuckle as he walked down the designated path with Red. He might have only known Theo for six months, but that was a long enough amount of time to know that that ginger wasn’t a cruel person. If anything, he was shy and over analyzed things and probably had spent far too much time thinking about the situation and reading into everything more than he should have. Maybe he was waiting for Chase to make the call and had agonized over the radio silence just as he did. But no matter what, the blonde knew that there wasn’t a single cruel bone in that ginger’s body. And this stupid game of waiting was just that—stupid. Still though, a part of Chase had to wonder if Theo even cared or if he was content with letting the actions on his birthday go forgotten. Honestly, Chase figured that everything between them would have eventually led up to that night spent pressed up against that wall. It might have happened prematurely, but one day when he was sure enough, Chase knew he would have made that leap of faith. He liked Theo, and in more than just a friendly hang out and eat pizza and watch movies sort of way. He liked the ginger in the way that he wanted to feel the tingle of their lips touching again, the flutter of his heart when he went in for the kiss. The way his cheeks would twinge pink as he pulled away and looked into those eyes of his. The smile he would crack as he laughed and called him Theodora. And in realizing that, he didn’t want to keep playing the same game, keep up the same song and dance. They had to talk, they had to discuss things and draw the line in the sand where their relationship would stand. He couldn’t keep playing as if his emotions meant nothing. So when the radio silence was broken, Chase had wasted no time in setting up a… er… meeting of sorts where he could talk to the ginger. Of course, there was no way for Theo to know what was going to go down. He hadn’t led on in any way that he was dissatisfied about how things had been left and handled, that he wanted to talk about them and potentially remove himself from the situation until he was able to get over things should they go awry. Despite knowing that, he was nervous. He felt bad for lying to him, as if he was cheating the ginger out of his much needed time off from work by teasing him with the idea they could hang out like they had before. But Chase just couldn’t keep pretending anymore and he knew that. Looking around for a moment, he pulled out his phone to check his messages. They had arranged to meet at the park that day around 2 so they could both enjoy the warmer weather and Red could get out of the apartment. But where they would meet became the issue when Chase arrived and he realized they had a whole park to wander aimlessly around. So when he found the right tree, just south of the swing set, he sent the text and moved to sit at the base. Pulling his dog close, he placed a kiss on the top of her head, before reaching up to unclip her leash. Pulling the tennis ball from his pocket, he waved it in front of her for a moment to get her attention, before throwing it as far as he could and watching the excited dog bound off to fetch it. He gave a short chuckle, leaning against the bark, trying to calm himself before the storm would inevitably hit.tagged: Theo/Solarbby| word count: 919 | outfit:It'll happen sometime | notes: Baby doesn't like waitingcassie at atf & caution.

I remember how we used to play. I recall those rainy days, the fires glowed, that kept us warm. And now I find, we're both alone. Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end. But in my heart's a memory, and there you'll always be.

ʽ ʽ so t o d a y I've got s o m e t h i n g
to prove to you - I'm gonna prove you wrong ' '

tag: Chase! | words: 1782 | Confrontations | notes: Here we go...

Looking down at his phone, he couldn't help but feel nervous. Couldn't help the way his stomach flipped this way and that as he went through their conversation for the umpteenth time. Nothing from what he could figure out implied that there was a reason to be nervous- he just was. Ever since their eventful night on his birthday all those months ago- God it had escalated to months instead of weeks... Ever since that night, his work life decided to take an unpleasant turn with the change of season.

If it weren't for the occasional pizza and a movie night, Theo would have pulled his hair out and crumbled up a mess of overworked flesh on the floor. The time he spent with Chase was time that he treasured. Time that he never wanted to forgot nor give up. Making his way though the crowded streets he found his hand running through his hair again. He felt like a giddy schoolgirl off to meet her super secret crush that had no idea that she had feelings for him. That was a lie though- Chase knew how Theo felt. Chase knew all too well after their eventful night as a tangled mess in the blonde's sheets.

At least, that was what Theo thought.

Biting his lip, he wondered if the other actually did feel the same way he felt. Yes, the next morning was basically Chase pulling him close in those impressively fit arms of his- but he was also complaining of feeling like shit too. It was hard to deny himself that even though it had all started with a challenge, that was followed by large quantities of alcohol; that he didn't have feelings like that for the blonde. It was obvious to him after he sat down and spent the next two days running the scenario through his mind. The way his lips felt pressed against the other's, the electricity that seemed to surge through his entire being at their touch. The constant butterflies in his stomach when they were so close to one another- it made Theo's heart act like a fish out of water.

Taking a quick stop at a gas station to grab something, anything strawberry to calm his nerves, he took no time in unwrapping the sucker and taking it between his lips. He hadn't felt this way when he got up, or when he was getting ready- otherwise he would've just used his emergency shampoo, the one that smelled of strawberries. Instead, he just used his normal two-in-one combo that had a hint of chocolate to it.

Checking his phone again, in hopes there was another text from the blonde about where they were meeting, his head tilted back in slight frustration when his mailbox was empty. There had been far too much silence between them, and Tobi hadn't help any either. The little rat of a hedgehog had chewed through his charger cord while the phone was charging, then decided to mush a food pellet in the mouth piece. The week without his phone killed him, and he felt like Chase thought he was blowing smoke out his ears when he told him. He couldn't help but think everything in the world was conspiring against the two of them being together. That wasn't what he was going for, not what he was going for at all.

Switching the sucker's position in his mouth, he stood at one of the many entryways to the Park, his heart racing and his stomach doing somersaults against his ribs. Taking another peek at his phone, there was still nothing- but maybe that was because he still had half an hour before they were suppose to meet. Exhaling slowly through his nose, he knew where to go to wait. Taking the normal route, passing joggers and children playing tag, he found it: His Tree. At least, that's what Ms. Kenna said. Reaching his hand out to caress the bark, he inhaled deeply, letting the clam rush through him. He had no reason to worry about this. It was just going to be like any other meeting the two of them had. They would sit together on the grass and let Red run around while they caught up with one another.

Just another day of them hanging out. That was all.

So to keep his nerves from twisting into knots, he pulled himself up to sit on the branch that was more than able to support him, letting one leg hang over the edge while the other was bent towards him. He would just stay here until he got the other's text and enjoy the quiet serenity of the park. With a content sigh, he tilted his head back and let it rest against the bark of the tree. The text will come, and everything will be fine....

The text came right as he finished his sucker- when he was at his calmest. Just as he planned, his mood was lifted and he was feeling better than when he first got here. Swinging his legs over the branch, he pushed himself off, bending at the knees with his arms out as he landed. "A perfect ten...," he chuckled to himself as he straightened his shirt. Chewing casually on the sucker stick, he stuffed his hands in his pockets as he meandered his way towards the playground equipment and his little golden ray of happiness.

He saw Red before he saw Chase, and with a grin spreading across his face he tossed the once strawberry flavored stick in the trash and gave a sharp whistle to catch her attention. Kneeling down with his arms spread he was greeted with a pounce and a few ecstatic licks to his cheek. "Oh yes girl I missed you too!" Pressing his forehead to hers he scratched with both hands behind her ears, absorbing her energy as if he was a sponge. It was great to see her doing so well, though he couldn't help but notice how some of her fur came out when he ran his hands down her muscled frame. "Awww, is someone shedding their winter coat?" He chuckled as she licked his face again and spun in a circle, her tail wagging what seemed faster than the speed of light. Noticing the ball at her paws, he looked up and could just barely make out the frame of Chase. His grin growing wider, he wrapped his fingers around it and held it up for her. "You wanna go see Daddy Chase? Hmm? Do you girl?" She barked at him and sat on her hind legs in front of him, her tongue jutting out of the side of her mouth. Laughing softly at the sight, he kissed her forehead and stood up, brushing some grass from his pants.

"Alright, how about this... I'll race ya. And the first one to him..." he chuckled, feelings his phantom fox tail flicking behind him, "Well let's just say the first one to him gets to flop across his lap."

Bouncing on his feet, he spun the tennis ball in his hand as he shrugged his shoulders to gear up for the "race." He had her undivided attention as he held the ball out for her, letting her sniff at it. "Alright, you ready girl?" Swinging his arm back, he threw it towards their goal and watched as she bounded after it. Without missing a beat, Theo was right there after her. His Converse dug into the soft ground as he kicked off- it had been awhile since he had done something as drastic as this, but he wasn't about to lose. Not when the comforts of Chase's lap were involved. So on an exhale, he pushed himself just a bit harder, managing to catch up to her. His face had to look retarded, a loopy childlike grin on his face as he tried to beat Red to the spot Chase was relaxing- but he didn't care. Today was a day that would be spent relaxing- catching up with the two most important people in his life. Who cared what he looked like, he was having fun.

With luck on his side, the ball didn't land too close to Chase, so he managed to pass her as she slowed to scoop the ball up. Giving a triumphant cheer of victory, his arms trusting up into the air as he tried slow himself. Unfortunately, fate was not going to be on his side today after a relaxing lounge in his tree, for he lost his footing in attempts at slowing down. In one not-so-graceful motion, which to him felt like it was in slow motion, he started to fall, face first, to the ground. As his knees started to hit the ground, he tucked himself and proceeded to roll a couple times, landing just inches from Chase's feet. In a mixture of a laugh and a cough, he pushed himself over to his back as his arms flopped out spread eagle. Breathing heavily, he couldn't help but laugh loudly for what transpired, even as Red stood over him and let the ball drop on his chest.

Between panting breaths, he grinned up at her- "I win....." Another laugh escaped his lips and he tilted his head back to look at Chase, raising a hand to give a small wave. "Hi," he said a bit more breathless than he intended, "Long time no see Stranger." A stupid grin plastered to his face, he rolled over and pushed himself to his hands and knees to crawl up beside Chase. Plopping himself beside the blonde, he offered him a smirk and gestured at Red with his thumb. "Mighty fine dog ya got there- can run faster than any dog I've seen."

Exhaling through his nose, he lets his eyes slide close as he took in the moment. This was the feeling he missed- the feeling of belonging. It really had been far too long since he was able to do this. Rolling his head over he slowly opened his eyes, letting Chase fill his vision as his grin shrunk to a soft smile. At least, until he noticed the look on the blonde's face. Sure, he had laughed at what happened, but behind that- in his eyes, he could see that something was bothering him. Tilting his head to the side, he nudged him gently with his arm. "Hey... what's wrong?" He knew that look.... that look brought the butterflies back full swing, and made his stomach drop to his feet. Something was wrong- and part of him couldn't help but feel as if it was his fault.

Oh no...

The soft breeze was comforting as it blew by, gently caressing his cheeks, tousling his blonde hair in every which way. He smiled into the warm radiant rays of the sun as it glittered down and kissed his face, the warmth of the spring air comforting him as he sat against the tree. The fresh smell of grass… of the leaves… the blooming flowers invaded his senses and filled him with a sense of ease that had been hard to come by with all the stressors in his life weighing down on his shoudlers. He was relaxed, the tree formed ever so perfectly to meld with the way his body curved and cradled it just so perfectly. He could close his eyes and let everything disappear into a world of quiet blackness, that was, until Red would return with her tennis ball and insist on him tossing it yet again. But even that was calming in a way. Even still though, his mind would not stop reeling, his stomach not stop turning. No matter how he felt, how at peace he was sitting in the shade of the tree with the sound of chirping birds and his dog’s barks, the laughter of children faded into the distance as they played, he couldn’t seem to let his mind settle. The moment he tried to banish any dark thoughts, anything too serious for that exact moment in time, he would start to feel nervous… his heart speeding up suddenly and his hands going clammy. No matter what he did to try and push away his mission for his and Theo’s meeting, he couldn’t seem to get it out of his mind, just like the ginger whose face he couldn’t seem to shake. Idly he wondered if Theo had any idea what he had done, was doing to him. If he knew in the back of his mind the affect he had on Chase and his emotions. Sure, he was outwardly confident and still as egotistical and jokey as he was the day they met at the shelter, that would likely never change no matter the circumstance. But so much had changed for him—for them—since winter. They didn’t have the same relationship they had when he got Red… even when Theo came over to explain his missing presence that entire month to follow. And he had to wonder if Theo could notice the difference to, question if he felt the same. Sure, they were friends then, despite a few lingering stares and the hint of an idea tickling his brain. But were they still friends now? He had to mentally scold himself, shaking his head at the ludicrous idea that somehow they weren’t friends. They would probably ALWAYS be friends, so long as Chase had a say in the matter. But really… were they still friends friends, or just friends out of convenience? Or the type of friends who were friends because they were too afraid to take anything further… because of rejection? Messing up something that was already good? That was all well and fine, a perfect excuse even had you not included the events of Theo’s birthday. But throwing them into the equation and the simple problem suddenly became more complex and jumbled. The question had haunted him since he bid the redhead farewell the evening following their eventful night. It had bothered him as he went through his days, wondering when and if Theo would get ahold of him. He couldn’t seem to shake it, let it go and go on with his life like he had before. There had to be some rhyme or reason for the silence… for the lack of everything really. If they were afraid to make any moves because they were afraid of rejection or ruining a great friendship then why had they kissed to begin with? Or really, why hadn’t anything come of it since? He knew why they kissed, he remembered perfectly despite the evening landing him nursing a terrible hangover the following morning. If he remembered properly, and this brought a smile to his lips, they had done more than just kiss… it was far from innocent and borderline carnal. So why should either of them be afraid to take the plunge? Taking in a deep breath, Chase peeked his eyes open in hopes Red would be there breathing in his face with her slobbery ball in his lap. The distraction was a welcomed one, despite how serene he appeared against the trunk of the tree. But he was disappointed to find that his husky hadn’t returned, and was instead greeting the ginger he had set up to meet with. For a moment, as he listened to the conversation between them with a smile on his face, glad to hear the sound of his voice, even if it was technically out of ear shot for a normal human. How happy and at peace it sounded, excited about the idea of racing Red. Hell, he was glad in general just to see the flaming red hair, the speckled face he had come to enjoy sneaking glances at when Theo wasn’t looking. Just… everything. But when he mused about it too long, kept his eyes trained on the pair as they started their race a smile on his own lips, he began to feel the unease of the situation bubble in his stomach. Today wasn’t going to be a day where they could all just roll in the grass and trade jokes back and forth until they split a side as if nothing was wrong… it wasn’t going to be like it had been in the past--normal. It was going to be awkward bringing up what he wanted to say, even more so if he had to tell Theo that he wasn’t interested in just a friendship and they’d potentially be looking at more radio silence until he got over it. But Chase was far past the point of pretending he didn’t care for Theo, too far gone to act as though he didn’t want to be in a relationship with him. He wanted to spend time with him, to cuddle with him, to share secrets with him, to kiss him. He wanted to be able to hold his hand and rub circles on the flesh, to place a hand on his knee when they ate dinner or watched a movie. And Chase wasn’t about to fool himself into thinking that where they were would be enough for him anymore. Finding himself laughing as Theo tripped over his own feet and tumbled up to him with Red just a few seconds behind, Chase couldn’t help but shake his head. He had remembered games of chase when he was but a mere pup, doing everything he could to beat Master Slade, or Chief, or the bunny he was hunting. It didn’t matter to him if the others didn’t know it was a race, but it was a game he liked to play, and seeing Theo run with Red, it made everything come back to him—a large smile on his lips. He remained silent, other than his outburst of chuckles, watching as Red dropped her ball on the boy’s chest and barked as if triumphant. She gave a short howl as she spun in a circle, her tail wagging, and Chase had to lean over and grab the discarded ball waving it in front of her to get her attention again. “’Sup,” he said in response to Theo’s hello, attempting to hide his secret agenda but knowing too well that his words betrayed him. He honestly didn’t want to hide it, better to get it over and done with than to prevent the inevitable. “I was beginning to think you forgot about me again. Found a new sexy blonde to replace me with. Then I remembered something—I’m irreplaceable.” he laughed to himself, his smile widening with ease as the fear and trepidation wore off. It was now or never, but being in the moment seemed to make it so much easier than he could have imagined. Being around Theo made even some of the harder things to talk about… easier. There was no fear of judgment from this ginger… it was just comfort. Laughing as Red lunged forward to swipe the ball from his hands, he stopped tossing the slobbery ball from one to the other and leaned his hand back. He raised a brow to her as she feigned a run forward, looking back at him with confusion as he still had the ball in his hand, and with another laugh he lurched it forward watched as it flew through the air, Red running after it with gusto. Wiping his hands on his jeans, he took a deep breath, his eyes finally moving to look Theo in the face. He felt a small twitch of the butterflies in his stomach as he noted the look of worry that had come across the boy’s features, but considering the look at that had to be on his own face, he couldn’t quite blame the boy for worrying. Pulling his eyes away, almost regretting the action as his attention turned back to the red husky in the distance, Chase leaned his head back against the trunk of the tree. Biting his bottom lip for a moment, he nodded in confirmation to himself. “We… need to talk…” he started, his voice serious. It sounded foreign to his ears, he wasn’t used to being so somber, but instead more laughy and happy. But somehow he didn’t think this conversation would go well if they went through it like it was a joke. Swallowing hard, he looked back to Theo, offering him a meek smile as he shrugged his shoulders. Nervously almost, his hand moved forward, gingerly lacing his finger’s with Theo’s in a loose manner, as if expecting a recoil. But with a deep breath he gave a light squeeze, his eyes moving back to the returning dog. “We need to discuss what happened on your birthday.” Chase finally finished, not looking back. He wanted to say more, but something told him he should wait before jumping into it too quickly. tagged: Theo/Solarbby| word count: 1707| outfit:It'll happen sometime | notes: Why do I feel half of that wasn't necessary xDcassie at atf & caution.

ʽ ʽ so t o d a y I've got s o m e t h i n g
to prove to you - I'm gonna prove you wrong ' '

tag: Chase! | words: 2147 | Confrontations | notes: I couldn't make him stop ;s;

Even with the sun shining and the breeze blowing through his hair, sitting there next to Chase as he gave him that look. that look wasn't alien to Theo, for there had been too many times he had received that look when he did something wrong. Like the time he did part of Chase's dishes, or that time he skipped lunch to make it over to his house before the blonde went to work. Then there was that time, when he was wrapped in Chase's arms the morning after his birthday, when he was apparently talking to loud. The memory brought a faint smile to his lips.

Breathing heavier than his traditional breathing, he took note of how Chase opened with a joke. That was normal for him- especially when it involved teasing about how he was so sexy and the best thing that had ever happened to Theo. Which, in all honesty: he was. Right up there with Copper, Chase was the one thing in this world that he didn't have to pretend around. The one person that wouldn't stop talking to him for the shirts he wore, or how he would sometimes go quiet for no reason. It was hard for him to think of wanting to build another relationship like this up with a completely new person. Because the possibility of that even happening was slim to none.

No one would, or could, ever replace Chase.
He didn't want anyone to either.

Giving a soft laugh at his comment Theo nudged his arm once again before commenting: "Pfft. Yeah right. Me find a replacement for you. If anything, I should be worried that someone as sexy as you found a replacement ginger." Which was true. Theo had been a real shit of a friend these past couple months, and even though he tried to apologize he wasn't sure if Chase actually believed him. After all, Chase was an almost model child for the perfect guy; why would he even bother with someone as generic and boring as Theo? No, no he wouldn't think about that right now. He would save that for later when he watched whatever was playing on ScyFy tonight with a pint of ice cream.

Inhaling slowly, he followed Chase's eyes as he paid attention to Red. His laughs echoed in his ears and Theo couldn't help but wonder how he ever really made it through the day without hearing them. There was so much innocence tucked away in there, that it was almost hard to believe that he could be as perverted and snarky as he really was. Though chalk that up as another thing he seemed to be the only who was allowed to see: Chase could be as gentle as a puppy. No reasons were needed, he just could be. So when that look crossed his features after throwing the ball. When his eyes closed and his head rested against the tree, there was a red light flashing frantically in Theo's mind. This wasn't typical Chase behavior.

With his bottom lip tucked between his teeth, he felt the worry and panic wash over him- chasing away the serenity he had acquired while resting at his tree. Today apparently was not going to be what he led himself to believe it would be and it made his stomach bunch up right under his lungs.

Chase's blue eyes seemed full of sorrow and what Theo was reading as guilt as they turned their attention to him. Resisting the urge to say anymore, he noted how he kept tilting his head to rest against the bark of the tree, as if trying to absorb some hidden power within it's thick bark while trying to find the right thing or things to say. Then he spoke, and it was as if everything around Theo came to a sudden halt: "We... need to talk..." Oh God something was seriously wrong. His voice- it wasn't as gentle and carefree as it usually was, and it worried him to no end.

He found himself sitting straighter against the tree, his complete and undivided attention focused upon Chase's face in hopes of finding something, anything that could possibly mean it wasn't him. No, no, no! This wasn't what today was suppose to be about. It was suppose to be a day of them catching up, him groveling at Chase's feet because he was pulling the "Terrible Friend" card and that he didn't mean for all the radio silence to happen. He started to respond, "Look Chase- I know I've been quiet bu-" but was caught off. Not by words. Not by a look.

Chase had wrapped their fingers together.

He made the effort to grab Theo's hand and hold it. His breathing was stuck in his throat as he looked from the nervous smile that was painting it's way across his face. Looking from that precious face down to their hands, he looked back up at Chase with an astonished look playing across his features. Almost a mixture of relief and pure joy. This was actually happening. Maybe? It could mean multiple things, actually; even if his brain couldn't quiet think of what those reasons could be. As the blonde's hand squeezed his own, he looked back down at their hands, taking a moment to notice how well they fit together.

It was so confusing, when you got down to the nitty gritty of it. Theo had never really put any thought into wanting a relationship at all when he had crossed over from his world considering how his last two relationships with his caretaker and best friend had fared. Then he thought back to the way the dark skinned boy had made him feel their first meeting in that cafe almost two years ago. How he first felt about Maren when they had met. The more he learned about human customs and what was and wasn't considered "normal" or "proper," the more confused Theo became about the topic of dating and love. It hadn't taken him long to realize that there were multiple meanings of love, ranging from the love of a sweater to the love one felt towards another human being. But never before had he ever thought he would be having feelings like that, feelings that made him act like those girls in those cheesy chick flicks he tried to avoid watching.

Then came the outlook on Chase. The blonde sitting beside him, holding his hand, didn't seem like the type of guy to be interesting in a stammering fool like Theo. At least, that was what he thought. Though, when he thought about it, the closer the two of them got- the less Chase would talk about ex-girlfriends or random encounters. He honestly couldn't recall most of those conversations, because the first one he was trying to get over seeing Chase almost naked fresh from a shower. The other times, he didn't like the jealous feeling that bubbled in the pit of his stomach when he thought about it, especially after what happened on the night of his birthday. How they were pressed against each other in a fury of limbs that had to be deemed unsafe for anyone to walk past.

"We need to discuss what happened on your birthday."

In that instant his heart dropped to his feet and he felt sick to his stomach. The words echoed in his head and he was finding the simple act of swallowing harder than it should have been. Even though Chase's warm hand was laced with his own, he felt suddenly cold. He had seen this part before, saw it played out on the television screen multiple times. This was where the break-up happened. Where the perfect person for the main character would gently tell them "It isn't you, it's me." and leave them sitting, standing, or whatever they were doing, trying to not cry and completely lose their composure. Chase must have finally had enough of the radio silence that Theo was causing and wanted to point it out on how it all happened after his birthday.

Maybe it wouldn't have made Theo feel so bad, if Chase had turned his gaze back to him. Instead, he was more focused on looking out towards Red and her playful antics. Trying to swallow back the bit of fear that was lodging itself in his throat he felt as if he were swimming in his own brain. All of his coherent thoughts were scattered and what should have been a simple act of picking them from his train of thought to express them properly to Chase seemed like a feat even a God couldn't do. He didn't want to lose Chase, didn't want to lose their friendship or the memories they had built and were building as time past on. The more he thought about it in his panicked state of mind, the more he wanted to just lunge himself forward and wraps his arms around Chase. But the last rational part of his brain was telling him not to, that it wasn't the smartest thing to do in a time like this.

So he instead sat there staring at their hands, quietly pondering the events of his birthday in his mind. The thought behind the invitation was a simple enough one: Chase just wanted to give Theo an actual birthday that didn't involve spending it alone with his hedgehog. Theo didn't mind it, he would've felt terrible knowing there were actual things he could have been doing that didn't involve feeling sorry for himself. So when the blonde had come to pick him up to take them to their destination Theo had nothing actively planned for what to expect. Then there was the quiet walk, where Theo would have to guide Chase out of harms way as the other thought it intelligent to walk around with a blindfold on. The thought still brought a large grin to his face when he thought about it.

Fast forward and things got hotter. The two of them had more alcohol in their systems than what should have been considered legal, and the actions that played out did more than just made Theo feel good. He felt whole. Wanted. Loved. Something he didn't he could feel in this world, but he felt it; and with Chase no less. His breathing had slowed down as his mind replayed in slow motion the walk home, the short game that was finding Chase's keys at the doors to the blonde's complex, the mountainous climb up those stairs with a giggling Chase draped over him. It all boiled down to him being shoved against the door, Chase greedily trying to get ever more closer to him. The rest of that night was actually Chase pushing things further.

He hadn't actually thought of the events through this side of the spectrum. He was generally under the impression that it was the alcohol doing all the talking. But with the guillotine hanging over his head and Chase's hand laced with his own, it shined a new light on the subject. Maybe, just maybe, Chase actually did want to be with him. And from the way it was looking, and how it did look, as more than just a friend.

As if it was happening in slow motion, he saw the other boy's hand retracting before he felt it. No. No don't go! Quickly he locked their fingers tighter and leaning over he placed his other hand on top of theirs. Looking up at Chase he made sure to keep his eyes focused on his. Licking his lips slowly his first attempt at saying something came out as a weak rasp. Clearing his throat he tried once more; "I-um, th-th-thank you... again. For uh- for.. going out, with me."

The small laugh that escaped through his lips as he resorted back to his stammering state. Funny how one guy could build up his confidence to where he was actually able to branch out and start conversations with strangers to acting like they were meeting for the first time. Taking the hand that was holding both of theirs together, he scratched at the back of his neck. "Damnit Chase, you've got me acting like a fool now..." Another laugh escaped through his lips and as he adverted his eyes for a moment, it didn't take him long to look back up at the boy who made him feel so good about himself.

Once again, he opened his mouth and was thankful that nothing stupid came out. "What- what about it? Did... did I do something wrong?" Well, just because nothing stupid came out of his mouth didn't mean he wasn't going to stop stammering apparently.

IS N/A


The moment he started talking, attempting to bring up what it was he wanted—no, needed—to talk about with Theo, Chase knew he’d want to stop and bury it away again. Just as he had avoided the topic all month, had refrained from picking up his phone and outright texting the ginger about whatever the hell was up and going on between them, he wanted to avoid it now. Things were so much easier behind the impersonal mask of a text, or even phone conversation. You could say things you wouldn’t necessarily say to someone in person. It was a metaphorical backbone for those who couldn’t find the nerve, and to Chase, it seemed like the cowards way out. And a coward was something he was not. But now, after he told himself he was going to just swallow his pride and be the bigger man, he suddenly felt the first flickers of fear and doubt in his stomach. He used to be able to face his fears head on, crouched down low and snarling until he suddenly felt less afraid. He could take things on like a fearless hunter and run into the unknown, prepared to take it on no matter what. But sitting at the base of the tree, heavy words hanging in the air, Chase realized there was a vast different between then and now… the situations also comparatively different as well. He had been a trained bloodhound, a pure bred hunter. Master Slade had worked it into him what he needed to do, his job, how it was best appropriate to act. Nowhere in that training allowed for hiccups of fear to hold him back? He was meant to do a job, and not stop until otherwise told. But here in NYC, he had no training. He was taught how best appropriate to live among the city and its people, but not how to handle complicated social and relationship issues. Here he was just another man. When it came down to it though, if his inner griping about not knowing what to do because he wasn’t trained ever came to an end, hunting prey and facing physical danger head on was completely different and waffling in the ‘what ifs’ of human existence. Stopping however, was something he just couldn’t do. Sure, it would be easy to laugh at Theo’s joke back, a retort that Chase was more likely to find a replacement ginger than the opposite coming easily enough to his lips. And yeah, it would make their time together so much better and more fun than it was turning out. But the question then begged to be asked, could he honestly cheat himself out of what he really wanted? Putting this conversation off wasn’t going to be like putting off doing his dishes. He couldn’t turn away from it blindly and pretend his feelings for the ginger didn’t exist like the growing pile in his sink. It would just end up snowballing and creating a cluster fuck of a mess he didn’t want to clean up. And who knew… if it got to that point if they would ever be able to salvage a friendship then. At least now, if he got rejected, he could shut the door on feelings that hadn’t gotten a chance to get out of control. He could take a step away from their friendship to resituate himself and settle with the idea that they would be nothing more than friends. He could get over it soon enough and move on with his life, keep a good friendship intact rather than throwing it to the dogs and hoping it came out alive and not too badly injured. At least now, he would get the closure he wanted, instead of wondering if that crack in the door could possibly lead to something other than a dead end. So he had no choice but to summon his courage and continue moving forward. What was easiest to do wasn’t necessarily the best thing for them. And while it held more appeal, it would be cheating them both, and Chase wasn’t about to do that. He knew better than that… but more so… he wanted Theo to be happy, for him to be happy again. And if that could come from having his conversation, who was he to let it go and roll with the flow of things. Swallowing roughly as he gathered the courage, an attempt to pull his hand away from the ginger and face the situation head on, he turned his gaze and gave a confused look. He hadn’t expected Theo to halt his movements, giving his hand a tighter squeeze and covering it so there was no chance for escape. Hell, he hadn’t know what it was he had been expecting to happen, but the fact that he was shocked and at a loss for words suddenly made Chase realize that this was something he hadn’t thought would happen. Sure, he should have expected the unexpected… should have been prepared to combat the movement with an added smile or a caress of his thumb against the other’s hand. But he was stunned, sitting there fighting the confused look on his face that wanted to appear. What did this even mean? His gesture had been that of reassurance right? An indicator about what it was he wanted to talk about. It was a way to show Theo that maybe things could be okay, that he liked him and just wanted to sort out what the hell had happened. But he had been unsure if that was the right way to handle it, if it was something the ginger would appreciate or just scowl at. And so he had tried to pull away. So when Theo reclaimed his hand before he could run it through his hair or fold his arms over his chest, Chase had to wonder why? Was this a subconscious way to telling him that he reciprocated? That he too had questions about the evening? That they shared mutual feelings? Or was this just a quick subconscious move… a way to reject him in an easier more polite way? To try to make him feel better about the words that were going to come moments later? The pessimistic part of him prepared himself to hear the worst, the optimistic puppy in his head telling him he was being over dramatic and shouldn’t assume the worst of situations. But time had a way of turning things against him. All the relationships in his life had ended prematurely, left him feeling empty and betrayed. Those he thought he could call friends had turned their backs on him… had made him feel the bitter sting of rejection, what it felt like to be told ‘you’re just not good enough’. So how could he possibly expect that this would be any different? Sure they had become good friends, probably best friends in the past six months, but that didn’t mean anything. Even good friends… best friends… could turn their back on you and betray you. So what was stopping Theo? He closed his eyes and looked back out at Red who had taken to throwing her tennis ball for herself, jerking her head and letting go, only to chase after the ball, and go in a seemingly never ending loop. Normally he would have been amused and laugh, would have gotten up and ran at her and played until they were both out of breath, but the conversation was weighing heavily on his shoulders and the only movement he could make was laughing at her, and apparently, Theo’s appreciation for his birthday. He gave a small half smile to the empty air in front of him before he looked back to the ginger, trying to ban the pessimistic thoughts going through his head, his smile widening. Lifting his free hand, he waved it off with a soft chuckle, his other hand giving the boy a gentle squeeze. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad? Maybe Theo would be different… “You don’t have to thank me. I wanted to do it. What kind of friend would I be to let you wither away and spend your birthday with that little hedgehog of yours? You would have died of boredom and had no prince to save you.” he joked, cracking a larger smile. It was so easy to be himself around Theo, even when he was worried about the turn out… about what would happen. And he hoped that even if things went south, and he didn’t get what he wanted, that some semblance of this relationship would be there when he was ready to come back again. Fighting another laugh as Theo mentioned how he made him sound like a fool, he couldn’t help the smile that lit up his face. “It’s a talent of mine, what can I say. Though I thought you already knew.” he joked, leaning his head back against the bark. It was only when Theo pulled the conversation back to what it has started as that Chase returned his smile to the small, half smile, and shrugged his shoulders. His grip on Theo’s hand loosened, thought he didn’t pull away this time. Shaking his head, few strands of his shaggy hair falling into his eyes, he remained quietly, almost solemn as he tried to come up with the right way to answer this. Sure he could say something like a joke, but that would derail from the fact that this was a serious conversation. And while it would be easier, it would take away a lot of the meaning. Biting his lip for a moment, he shrugged his shoulders again. It was such a noncommittal gesture, yet it was all he could do. “You didn’t do anything wrong.” he reassured, looking to the boy’s eyes in hopes he would settle down and not worry about having done something ‘wrong’. Offering a small smile, he looked back out at the park, reveling in the sound of nature around him, trying to find some form of comfort to calm his nerves. “I just…” he stopped, shaking his head. Nope, that was wrong. “It was…” nope, still wrong. “We were…” Almost but not quite. Giving a frustrated growl under his breath, not quite used to being so inarticulate, he sighed. “Did it mean anything to you?” tagged: Theo/Solarbby| word count: 1774 | outfit:It'll happen sometime | notes: Why do I feel half of that wasn't necessary xDcassie at atf & caution.

I remember how we used to play. I recall those rainy days, the fires glowed, that kept us warm. And now I find, we're both alone. Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end. But in my heart's a memory, and there you'll always be.

tag: Chase! | words: 1065 | Confrontations | notes: my baby ;s;

Even though they had been friends for months, Theo still found it hard to read Chase at times. Still found it hard to be able to figure out what certain expression on the blond's face meant. So when the other went to pull his hand away, Theo didn't expect the look that was given to him. Was it confusion? Did he surprise Chase with the action he took? Or was this not the action that was expected of him to take? It was really hard to tell, and it bothered Theo a bit. He was always use to being the one that was rattled by things, not him being the one to actual do any of the rattling.

While trying to read the other's face, he could tell the changes in himself. His pulse increased, and his body temperature was rising. This was new to him, every last bit of it, and it confused him.

Casually texting one another about the meeting was one thing. Everything Chase had sent him seemed clam, jokable- just like normal. The situation they were in now? Chase was all to serious, and Theo was at least able to tell that the other was nervous. The topic of the conversation in the beginning was still a loss to him, but after hearing those words from his mouth mentioning his birthday; Theo had a slight idea.

What had Chase so worked up? So worried that he was acting like this? Had he actually done something wrong? Made a move that shouldn't have been made? He really wasn't in control of his self-control that night, but he was over one hundred percent certain that everything that transpired that night was something he had wanted to experience.

Hell, to this day Theo would lay in bed and think back on the actions they did.

He tried to apologize for being so quiet. Tried to let the other know that he wasn't doing it on purpose. To even let him know how much it meant that someone was willing to do something, let alone anything on his birthday. Per the norm, Chase just shrugged it off with that smile on his face. That same damn smile that made Theo's stomach twist and made his mind rush back to the night on the dance floor when he was shoved back against the wall.

A slight flustered mess, Theo couldn't help but call Chase out on the way he made him act sometimes; only able to grin when the other joked about the subject. That was another thing that threw Theo for a loop. Some of the blond's reactions were based around joking. And while it was possible that he could just be doing this to see Theo all flustered- he couldn't help but feel it wasn't the case.

At least, not this time it wasn't.

Trying to keep them on track, he pulled them back onto the topic of the party. He himself was finally working up the courage to admit his own feelings for the blond, and he didn't want to end up passing the opportunity to see if the other felt the same way.

His heart skipped a beat when the grip on his hand loosened, but was thankful he didn't try to pull away again. It would have crushed him inside if Chase was actually trying to get away from him now.

The assuring smile that he once wore twisted into a small grin as Chase stumbled over his words. There was really something about the way he would start to speak then sit there with his mouth slightly parted before attempting to start it a different way. It really felt nice to be on the other side of that conversation.

"Did it mean anything to you?"

A laugh escaped his throat and it was his turn to shake his head a bit. Did it mean anything to him? What did the blonde want to hear? That every night since then he had wanted to find a way to get that sort of attention without the presence of alcohol. That every time he ended up day dreaming or zoning out his mind focused on Chase's smile? his laugh? Oh that night meant so much to Theo. There were times his co-workers would stop and pester him for information because of the grin he wore upon his face.

With no thought behind it, he found his thumb gently caressing the back of Chase's hand. So he thought about it to, it seemed. Though the question remained: Did he think about the subject like Theo thought about it? That's what worried him when he would start to over analyze it.

"How do you want me to answer that without sounding like a cliche chick flick?" Grinning up at him, a blush had permanently settled upon his face. There was something about being in the reversed situation that made him feel better than what he would have normally felt.

Lifting their joined hands, he nodded at their loosely laced fingers. "I wouldn't be doing this if it didn't mean anything to me..." Chase knew what he meant. If it were any other situation he would have been a stammering mess. Would have been stumbling over his words with his face becoming invisible next to his hair. Theo would have turned into a silent doll, waiting for the next question that wouldn't have been so terrifying to him.

But there was something about the possibility of knowing Chase's feelings that made him man up and want to prove himself.

"Chase, it meant everything to me...." Flicking his eyes down to the grass, he let himself run off of a last minute decision: leaning forward he placed a quick, firm kiss to the other's lips before quickly turning back, his cheeks on fire from what he had just pulled. "You've been in my head ever since that night, and you need to know that I don't regret anything that happened."

His nerves caught up with him, and he found himself biting him lip, looking everywhere but at chase. Silently he hoped he wasn't reading this situation wrong. That he wasn't trying to make it seem like this just for his benefit. He really, really liked Chase, and if he could help it he would make sure the other at least knew how he felt.

"What about you?"

Although his gaze was directed in front of him, idly locked onto the form of his dog rolling in the grass with her tongue lolling out, he didn’t really take notice. His mind was a million miles away, and only due to his excellent hearing was he able to keep tabs on what was going on. Despite being so literally grounded, leaning against the tree, his head was someplace else entirely, flashes of the night club playing before his eyes. He had thought about that night so often since they parted ways the following morning. Had wondered what drink it was that had pushed him over the edge into insanity… what drink had given him enough liquid courage to make the move. Before sitting at the base of the tree, talking with Theo, he had wondered if it had all been just another stupid mistake that they could laugh off a few months down the line. The kind of story you told your kids when their “uncle” came over and you wanted to reminisce and laugh about the good old days. But before he had made the move to meet up with the ginger Chase had settled with the idea it had been more than just a funny mistake to laugh about in the future. He had wanted it… more than he knew. And his drunken self seemed to only embrace it more—take charge. Maybe if Theo didn’t feel the same it could turn into that laughable story for the rare visits in the distant future, but for now it was no laughing matter. He heard Theo laughing and the flashes of the night club began to fade. He could no longer see Theo’s red face pushed up against the wall, hidden partially behind messy waves of ginger falling into his eyes haphazardly. Instead lush green grass came into view, the red husky splayed out in the grass on her back in a very un-ladylike fashion, squirming around playfully. The turn of his head changed the scene, and instead of the blushing ginger he had pinned up and ravished as much as he could muster in a crowded club, he saw a smiling face with a blush, slight confusion in his eyes. He was suddenly aware of the way his thumb caressed the back of his hand in gently circles, his skin tingling lightly. The shoe was on the other foot this time, their respective roles reversed, and it made Chase slightly uncomfortable. He wasn’t used to being the serious one in the conversations between them. He was all cocky jokes and ego, not sentimental and sensitive. But, Chase realized, he couldn’t always be fun and games… and when the situation called for it, when he wanted something that was important to him, he couldn’t pretend like it was a joking matter. And that wasn’t to say Theo saw it that way either… that he wasn’t taking this situation as seriously as he was, but he had found some humor to throw in—a small gem of a joke—and earned a laugh. And it suddenly dawned on the blonde that this was one of those times, like when he had noticed Theo in that gorgeous scarlet shirt of his, that he just couldn’t control how he was feeling or reacting. He remained silent for a long while, just listening as he spoke and not interjecting a few sarcastic jokes to lighten the mood as he easily could have. When everything was said and done he could go back to that happy person, that cocky guy who pumped up his own ego just for shits and giggles, wagging his invisible tail in delight. But until then, only the small line of smile on his lips was allowed, the ginger’s words slowly tugging at the corners of his mouth and widening it. He honestly didn’t realize just how much it made him happy to hear that, that he felt the same way. He had been about to open his mouth and say something when he noticed Theo’s gaze moving to the grass floor beneath them. He had wanted to smile at him and tell him that he had wanted to do that long before the party, but didn’t want to overstep his boundaries… the lines in the sand, but he had suddenly been cut off. His eyes blinked once, twice, three times… and the moment was over. He barely had been given proper time to process it before the warmth on his lips had disappeared and left him pouting, wishing he had reacted instead of trying to process. It had been like the moment outside the club before they went in, when he was blindfolded and Theo had kissed him for the first time. He wanted more… wanted to feel the electricity again, the warmth, only this time he didn’t have to wait to reciprocate. The sullen, distance look on his face dissipated behind a controlled smile, listening, watching intently as the ginger in front of him continued to tell him how much that night meant to him. When in reality the kiss just moments before had been all he was looking for. It was good to hear it said out loud, to hear it confirmed. But actions spoke louder than words, and that said so much more. Gently his grip on the ginger’s hand tightened, his own thumb running circles over his skin as he waited for him to finish, a raised brow in his direction. And when he finally did, a question posed to him about what he thought, all he could do was lean over and steal a kiss from the male. His free hand lifted quickly and gently rested on the back of his neck, pulling him in closer before he retracted. For a moment, Chase felt satisfied enough to settle against the tree and say nothing to answer the question. To just sit in a content happiness, his thumb caressing the skin on his hand in gentle circles. But he realized that maybe Theo wasn’t as content with that as an answer as Chase would have been. That maybe he needed that verbal confirmation. Gently lifting their lifted hands, he leaned over and placed a chaste, quick kiss on the skin before leaning back. His eyes closed as he leaned his head against the bark of the tree, a fond smile on his lips as he set their hands on his thigh. “Like you don’t already know Dora.” he said playfully, teasingly. “What kind of knight in shining armor would I be if it meant nothing.” he laughed, peeking an eye open. Flashing a smile, he sighed, his face turning serious again for a moment. “I was afraid I overstepped my boundaries.” he explained with a shrug. “I wanted to do it, I’m glad I did. It meant everything to me. I just didn’t know about you.”tagged: Theo/Solarbby| word count: 1152| outfit:It'll happen sometime | notes: ALL THE HAPPINESS!cassie at atf & caution.

tag: Chase! | words: 1065 | Confrontations | notes: my baby ;s;

It was rare that the two of them ever actually had silence while in the other's presence. They always had something to talk about. Joke about. Be it something small as the weather, or larger as Theo tried to talk Chase into letting him at least do his dishes. Always there was something being said. So when the silence washed over them, his mind started to spin as both his heart and brain knew what they wanted to say. What they wanted to do.

Everything was placed in front of him, and all he had to do was react. But as normal, he was too busy overreacting. Trying to figure out the proper timing and the right words. It was laughable, really- how easily he could blow something up in his mind.

Here he was, sitting here under a tree with the boy who had stolen his heart- holding his hand no less! The night of his birthday was brought back to attention, and as Theo's eyes traced over Chase's face, he knew the other was replying what had happen. He found his mind following suit, and he couldn't help but wonder if they were thinking of the same thing. It was possible, though his mind liked to fast-forward to the scene that played before Chase's door- when he was pressed against the hard wood as the blond stole another kiss from his lips.

It was laughable, as once said, and he couldn't help but chuckle. Everything really was laid out before them. Set up like a detailed chess board. They were picking and choosing their words, and the more he thought about it the more he knew it had started before the party. The moment the two of them met at the shelter the game had started. Now just came the time for one of them to make the winning move.

Something stirred within him, causing him to chirp up and let it all out. It was what was needed, and part of him did it to prove to Chase that he had changed. That he was able to be serious, to be honest, to not think of it as a challenge. Their hands were still locked together and Theo let it all out; well- most of it. A blush crossed his cheeks as he thought about the more intimate things he had thought of when he let his mind wander over the memories longer than needed be.

A large part of him was glad that Chase stayed quiet. That he didn't interject with jokes and comments that he was accustomed to. It helped Theo stay on track and kept him from trying to back out of it. Once he started, it would be near impossible to stop, and that's the push that he needed.

But as the silence fell on them once more, Theo felt that he needed to prove it. Prove to Chase that it was more than just words, and that everything he said was true. He offered up a kiss that he had wanted more than anything from this boy. Since that night, and the morning that followed where they just laid in Chase's bed, a kiss was all he could think about. Even in the times of their movie nights. Those nights were painful, because he wanted to join their lips together so badly, to be able to lay his head against the blond's shoulder or drape across his lap like Red would do. But he was far too afraid to do anything. Was now being the key word.

His stomach teetered on the edge of falling to his feet as once again the silence washed over him. Part of him hoped he didn't just do that before Chase could explain that all he really wanted was a friendship. Part of him hoped that for once, he had left Chase speechless instead of it being the other way around. If he had been actually paying attention, he would have known it all when Chase smiled. Apparently he had said, or done, the right thing, and he was rewarded with another kiss. This one longer, with enough time for the blond to place his hand at Theo's neck to hold him in place.

Everything seemed to stand still as all the pieces started to fall into place. This was one of those moments they would look back and laugh on. How they were both too scared to actually start anything. To make that first move to get the ball on the roll.

His shoulders seemed lighter as their thumbs went to caressing the other's hands. It felt like a wet towel had been lifted from his head that he couldn't help but inhale deeply, a lopsided grin spreading across his face. Feeling his hand being lifted, he raised an eyebrow and watched with curiosity playing across his eyes. It wasn't until Chase spoke that he let the laugh that he had been holding out. Smirking as the blond commented on being a knight in shining armor he took in the way the other's eyes seemed to lighten. He really could get lost in those eyes of his.

It was his turn to glance out to see what Red was doing, and he couldn't help but laugh softly. Feeling the corners of his mouth start to curl, he swiftly lifted their hands and wrapped them around him as he turned and rested his head in the other's lap, taking his prize he won fair-and-square from Red. Holding onto the other's hand, he let the lay upon his chest as he grinned up at the blond. "I was in the same boat as you. Though I'm sure I was over-analyzing everything more than you."

With a soft sigh, he nuzzled the back of his head against the boy's thigh. "Just so you know, I won this spot fair and square. So I don't want to her anything about it." There was a wet nose at his ear and he squirmed, taking to wiping it off with his free hand as the wet nose then went to investigate their hands upon his chest. "I told you Red, winner got to lay their head in his lap." He grinned as his eyes trailed up to take in Chase's face. And win did he ever.

A part of him couldn’t believe what was happening; that what had just transpired had actually occurred. As if this moment was just a hyper realistic dream that he would wake up from, and feel that sinking feeling in his stomach as he realized it hadn’t actually happened at all. That all the time he had spent gathering his courage, and practicing what he wanted to say so he wouldn’t sound like a complete dolt, was just a lie his mind made up to entertain him whilst he slept. This… all of this… was too good to be true. And while Chase was rarely a pessimist, and preferred to think positively, a part of him couldn’t help but think that Theo would reject his feelings. He honestly wouldn’t have blamed Theo if he had. What they had, what they were, was complicated. More so than just one person caring for another person. It wasn’t so simple for either of them to be in that position. It’s not like he could come right out and serenade the ginger like any hero from those ridiculous animated movies would. Those were fairytales and make believe. Sure, he was the prince charming to Theo’s damsel in distress, the knight in shining armor to Theo’s princess, the confidence to his bashfulness, but that was just between the two of them. To the outside world… so cold and judgmental… they were just two guys. Apparently it was becoming more and more common every day, but that sort of relationship was frowned upon. And Chase knew that sort of pressure could be tough… especially for the gentle soul he knew Theo to be. It scared him… coming into this meeting knowing he was playing Russian Roulette with his feelings, his heart, but when he pulled the trigger he was glad to find his head hadn’t been blown off. That his affections were returned. A long, comforted sigh escaped his lips as his eyelids fluttered closed. He didn’t need to say anything more, perfectly content with everything, nervous that breaking the comfortable silence would ruin the illusion they were in. Sure, there hadn’t been any talk about labels, about where they stood in this awkward and weird relationship they were entering into. But it didn’t bother him to not have that closure, to not have those lines in the sand. He was with Theo, he cared about the ginger who had laid claim to his lap, and he knew the boy felt exactly the same way. And that was all that mattered when it boiled down. Lines could be drawn another day, because all he needed now was to relish in this moment. Slowly his eyes opened when Theo spoke again, and they turned to Red who had returned from rolling in the sun. A slim brow raised as he looked down to the ginger, his thumb slowly caressing circles on his flesh. “Mm… did you now? I didn’t realize my lap was a possession to be won.” he started, his tone turning to that of mock offense. Slowly his free hand lifted to his chest as he gestured to himself. “I am not some piece of property to be fought over, I will have you know. Some object you can own. I know that in all of my majesty you simply can’t resist it, but I am a human being. A knight no less! Shouldn’t it be your hand—your lap—up for grabs Dora?” he teased, lifting their clasped hands and gently bringing the boy’s hands to his lips where he placed a chase kiss. “For I would fight to the ends of the Earth for this hand… slay the dragon and return valiantly.” he continued with the charade, puffin his chest out with a laugh, before deflating and leaning back against the tree. It was all an elaborate joke, and he couldn’t help but laugh. Shaking his head, the façade fading, Chase lifted his free hand and gently plopped it atop his dogs. She gave a guttural grumble as she laid on the grass, her tongue lolling out as she tried to playfully nip at his wrist. They were a picture of a perfect family… and Chase would have had it no other way. He couldn’t have asked for a better turn out… a better dog… a better friend turned boyfriend. He was content with his life and where he was at in it. And it was all thanks to Theo. He might have been Theo’s knight in shining armor, but Theo was his as well. He wouldn’t admit it…. Lord only knew what the ginger would come up with to call him with his new knighthood. But Chase knew, and as he smiled down to the ginger, his fingers combing through that red hair he had come to love, he was happy. tagged: Theo/Solarbby| word count: 805 | outfit:It'll happen sometime | notes: So sorry it took so long wifey and that its all meh D:!cassie at atf & caution.

I remember how we used to play. I recall those rainy days, the fires glowed, that kept us warm. And now I find, we're both alone. Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end. But in my heart's a memory, and there you'll always be.

If someone were to have told Theo that all his dreams would come true in that faithful meeting with Chase he was fretting over earlier, he would have laughed and waved his hand to dismiss the notion. Coming into this meeting he was unprepared. He had no clue what the blond had in store for him, and all he knew it was just going to be like any other day.

But as the events turned and Theo was left breathless and his heart racing in his chest, he honestly couldn't have been happier. Never had he actually thought Chase would have felt the same way. Sure, they had the personal joke that Theo was the blonde's Princess. That the other was his own Knight in Shining Armor. But it was just a joke. Something they would laugh about and tease the other with. To know that it was actually more than that? Theo really couldn't help but grin.

He didn't think Chase would have gone for him. For the longest time he felt the other viewed him as a brother. The way the joked, messed around, a Bromance- he had heard it called. Just two guys who enjoyed the others company. Theo wasn't pleased with the thought, but with the way society viewed same-sex relationships, he wasn't about to put any more of pressure on anyone, especially Chase. He just didn't want to ruin the relationship he already had with the boy.

The signals were clear though, as Theo thought back on their previous encounters. The sly comments Chase had made in the shelter, how the other couldn't help but show off when Theo was around. How he would bolster about acting like he was flawless. If he would have paid attention to the effort Chase put into making him uncomfortable, to making those freckled cheeks of his blush- Theo would have had his answer ages ago. Not to mention everything that happened on that faithful night back in March. When the two of them couldn't be pulled from the other's lips.

What could he say, he was naive when it came to that sort of thing.

Silence had washed over them again, but this time it was welcomed. They were falling back into their normal habits, but this time there was more to it. Adjusting himself against Chase's legs, he didn't care about anything else in that moment save for the blonde who took to relaxing against the tree. Both of them lost a load off their shoulders, and the comfort of just being in the other's presence was good enough.

A comment that couldn't go unsaid slipped past his lips and Theo knew it would catch Chase's attention. Scratching Red under her chin he chuckled as the blond started on his little dramatization. A smile spread across his lips as their hands were lifted once more and a tingling sensation ran from his hand to everywhere else. "You would now? However did I get so lucky as to grab your attention. Surely there was something else you saw save for this freckled, stammering mess of a ginger." He laughed this time, a purr almost escaping his lips as Chase's fingers took to running through his hair. How many times had he dreamt of this moment?

Far too many times.

Slowly he closed his eyes, falling prey to the other's gentle caress. His breathing slowed and he felt a yawn coming on him. This right here? This was heaven. Nothing could ever come close to being better than right now.

The sun was shining, there was a gentle breeze that blew through the trees, and there was a blond playing with his hair that he was absolutely crazy for. He couldn't ask for anymore in that moment. It was the happiest he had been since his birthday, and he could only silently wish they could have more nights like that, only without the added mix of their liquid courage.

But right now those thoughts weren't important.

Reaching up with his free hand, Theo slipped a finger in the collar of Chase's shirt, giving it a gentle tug. He was pleased when he found the other didn't resist, and as he propped himself on his elbows there was a grin on his lips as he took a kiss for himself. "I don't think I'll ever get tired of this." Using that free hand, he slide it to cradle the back of Chase's neck as he went in for a deeper kiss.

The perfect start to a beautiful relationship.
