Alex was sat on a low wall near the forest that surrounded the school. It was a pretty sunny day and the weather was warm. The sky was light blue and there were random white clouds walking around. A pleasant spring breeze took immediately away the smoke that came out of his mouth. His feet where hanging and his sunglasses were on. There was a relaxing silence and the only thing he could hear was some animals and insects. He took another drag. It had been two weeks since Miles had kissed him. The next day after the kiss, he woke up early and left Miles’ apartment and went to ask Matt for some shelter. It wasn’t a good idea at all, Matt almost wasn’t at home and Alex didn’t fancy going out with him. His parents were practically as irresponsible as Matt, and most of the time Alex was alone in their house. After some days in there he decided to go and talk with his mum, who, reluctantly, accepted his apologizes and let him coming back home.
‘Home, sweet home.’ thought Alex when he had finally laid down on his bed. He stared at the ceiling. He missed Miles. He couldn’t avoid thinking of him, thinking on the kiss, thinking about Miles’ secret. Why hadn’t Miles told him he was gay? He thought Miles trusted him. Maybe he was afraid of his reaction. But that was stupid, Alex appreciated him too much for leaving him because his sexuality. But maybe Miles didn’t know it.
‘Hey, you, dumbass!’ he heard while a tiny rock hit him. He came back from his thoughts and looked at her. Elena was there, with a high-waisted denim shorts, a pair of Docs and a large t-shirt, put inside her shorts. Her make-up was the same as always and his hair was completely a mess, but that made her even more sexy.
‘I have been waiting for you, like… 20 minutes.’ said Alex jumping down the wall. It had been practically a whole week since Elena talked with him for the last time. She didn’t keep the promise she made of talking him at school, maybe she accepted because she was drunk, but that made Alex question her real intentions. Anyway, she had sent him a note that morning where she ordered him to meet her at that wall at 3 pm. He knew he was dumb following her order after her indifference towards him, but he couldn’t resist her.
‘Oh, yeah, I’m sorry.’ she said without really meaning it. ‘Alex.’
‘Yeah…’ he said approaching to her with his hands in his pockets. There were silence until Elena pushed him closer by his arms and kissed him. Kissed him in a fierce and passionate way, like if she had been craving for his taste for a really long time. Alex placed his hands on her waist and pushed her even more closer and their hip bones collided. Elena took back to breath and looked at him. She raised his sunglasses with a finger to see his eyes and a little smirk appeared on his face. ‘What was that?’
‘Umm, yeah, I don’t know, I felt like doing it.’ she said while she embraced him on a sweet hug and she placed her head on his chest. His heart was beating fast, and it was certainly true that what had just happened excited Alex and made him really happy after some weeks of pure sadness. Now his only thoughts were Elena. Her. Finally. He couldn’t believe it how quickly things had happened. He, in his inside, forgave her for her indifference. With that kiss she had solved all his problems and worries.
