Perci T. Brooks is owner of this short.
The wetness dropped down and it made a little thud as it landed on the umbrella. They walked hand in hand as the rain fell around them. Both young men were silent as they went.
Thunder sounded and the younger man jumped a little. He wasn't expecting thunder while they were out. He's always been afraid of storms since he was a kid and he never grew out of it. The other hand squeezed his and turning his head he smiled.
"Everything will be okay, my love. We're almost home."
Just as soon as spoke those words, the thunder sounded again. This time closer and with it came lightning and a gust of wind. Everything startled the shorter young man and he couldn't hold on to the umbrella anymore. Finally he gave up fighting with it and let it go. The rain was dampening his hair and clothes and he started shaking from the thunder that kept getting closer and closer.
"Hey." his lover let go of his hand and pressed him up against the nearest wall.
The smaller man squeezed his eyes shut.
Hands were on his true love's arms, moving up and down. "Hey. Open your eyes."
The blonde shook his head.
Sighing he had to think quickly. So he decided on the one thing his man loved. Leaning down, he claimed those cold light pink lips and wrapped his arms around him.
It was a passionate kiss and it helped him stop shaking. Breaking the warm kiss, he bit his lip and opened his eyes looking up at his paramour. "Th-thank you."
"I love you. Now, let's get home and get you warmed up. I'm thinking fireplace, us in front of it, hot cocoa and the TV."
Smiling, he nodded. "Yes."
