Bigger Than We Thought – Unexpected Guest

I was going to walk home, but I figured I’d forget to call Sage when I did. I could pick up Drake and we could spend the night tossing and turning, but then I’d deprive my father of his grandson. I still took the train home, and I was walking up the stairs as I sent Sage a text.

I’m walking up the stairs to the Apex Unlimited building.
9:54 PM

When I was in my apartment, I sent another text with a selfie lying on my bed.

You could come join me.

I curled up in my bed with my pillow. There were four extra pillows now, I’d had some delivered from a store down stairs. My phone sat on top and I closed my eyes to sleep. If I got a response from Sage I’d wake up, if not I’d dream of him, anyway. The sound of a loud smacking kiss woke me from the drifting I had been doing. I glanced at my phone to see what Sage had sent.

Now you tell me. If you are serious, I can be there in twenty.

I’m always serious.
9:58 PM

I turned the screen off and closed my eyes. I was still tired from my earlier extension of my energy when killing Emerson. It was a fact I hadn’t told Sage yet. I felt the darkness take me but then I heard a soft knock at my door. I blinked as I turned the screen on my phone and looked at the time.

I crawled out of bed and padded over to the door in the dark, opened the door and found my mysterious blue eyed boy standing there with a grin. I smiled. I stepped aside and took his hand as he stepped inside. I didn’t say anything as I locked the door and pulled him towards my bed. I crawled into bed and Sage stood next to the side and pulled off his t-shirt and kicked off his shoes before he sat down to tug off his jeans. I watched the way his body moved in the dim light coming from the night light in the bathroom.

He sat there on the edge of my bed for several moments. I don’t know what he was thinking. His back drew my attention as I watched him breathe slowly in and out. The muscles in his back were strong and I wanted to touch him. I reached out several times but never laid my hands on his beautiful skin. Sage laid down on to his back with a deep sigh. I covered him with the remaining blankets and he looked over at me with bright blue eyes that I couldn’t see in the dim light, but I knew what color they were. I dreamt about them every night. I loved his eyes.

I smiled at him and offered him my hand; he entwined our fingers together and laid them down between us. I moved closer. Sage let out a soft sigh before he moved down and closer to me, his shoulder resting under my chin and his head laying against mine. I took a deep breath and savored the scent of him in my bed. Butterflies swirled in my stomach as I closed my eyes. I tightened my fingers around Sage’s and he hummed softly in my ear. “Night, Nox.” He whispered. I kissed his shoulder and whispered in return, “Night, Sage.”

The Last Phoenix (in order)

  1. I loved the gentle uncertainty in this scene. I half-expected one or the other to say, “Uhhh, never mind.” :D
