The sun hit my face as my alarm blared, I'm definitely not a morning person. It is 8 in the morning, leaving my two hours until Simon shows up. Dragging my body out of bed, I headed to the shower. I could get done in half an hour before eating breakfast. Basically, I would be done an hour before Simon is here. My parents are already up and getting ready to go to work. Honestly, it's rare for my family to be up early except on busy days for work.
"Danny, come here, please." My mom spoke as she threw together some breakfast.
"What is it? I didn't do anything, did I?" I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything since I went to bed.
"I'm leaving 40 dollars for you today use it wisely. You can keep what you don't spend." Pointing to the money as she finishes the last touch of breakfast.
I grabbed the money and started to pull down 3 plates. Why would they give me $40? It's not like I'm pulling all the stops for someone I just met. Unless one-night stand, but I doubt that. Sitting the plates down, I grab a fork for me to use. My dad then appeared, all dressed and grabbed his plate. As we all sat at the table, no one spoke, but I don't blame them. We were all done with eating, and I still have one hour till Simon.
As my parents walked out the door, my mom gave me a hug, and my dad said goodbye. Now it was just my dog, and I. Boss was probably still sleeping in my bed or somewhere. I actually don't know when he walked into my room, but I know he went in there.
As I went to grab Boss, I put him in the backyard to use the bathroom. Not long after, I got a phone call from Simon.
"Hey, I just want to make sure if you are ready or not." I assume that meant Simon was already finished.
"I'm actually taking care of my dog, but I'm ready whenever. You do have a bit over an hour before the set time, but I guess you can come earlier. I mean, if you want to." I'm actually nervous for him to show up.
Before he spoke, he let out a gasp and said: "what kind of dog, does it have a short nose, I find those dogs to be very adorable."
"Yeah, he's a Boston Terrier. His name is Boss, like my moms' grandpa's dog. A stinky little breed." I said as I casual walked to the window to see Boss.
Yet again, another gasp came through the phone, "OMG YOUR DOG IS A BOSTON TERRIER, I MUST SEE HIM!"
"So, how far are you?" stating with the want to change the subject.
Time soon past, from our conversation. It wasn't long that I waited for Simon to get to my house, about 26 minutes had gone by. I didn't expect him to be here that fast when he knocked on the door. He had a shy smile as I opened the door. I instantly felt weak in the knees, his chestnut hair shined bright in the morning sun. My heart feels like it is going to implode on itself at seeing him. Kinda awkward when you just met the dude, literally yesterday.
"So, what's first?" Simon spoke softly, clearly nervous.
"How about the main areas like easy hang out places" It feels like im sweating really hard. Is it noticeable? Dear god, I hope not.
Everything is pretty silent as we walk to get into his car. I didn't know what to say. Maybe, I'm feeling odd because I did ask him about sexuality. What if it's because he's awkward about being near a bisexual guy?
Sitting down and putting my seat belt on, I asked, "want to play two truths and a lie? It might be fun since we don't know each other a lot."
Simon stayed silent as he started the car before he spoke, "I have dated a girl, this is my first time living outside the city, and I like cute stuff."
What kind of easy question is this? "Definitely, you didn't date a girl."
He just chuckled at my confidence in my answer. Pulling out of the driveway and headed to the town square with my directions.
"Too easy, I guess.", Simon kept his smile.
"Okay, my turn! I prefer one gender even though Bi, I never always had curly hair, and I do not even have my temps for driving.", I tried to make it kinda hard for this one, but I feel like the last one is clearly true.
Again, Simon sat silently in thought, before speaking. "I think it is the gender one, but I feel like it's the curly-haired one. I say, number 2."
"I thought for sure, I made that one hard! How did you guess that I always had curly hair and not that I prefer both genders!" I was kinda shocked.
He just shrugged his shoulders casually and said, "no one has that type of hair, without it being natural. Plus, you seem like one gender type of guy. If I had to guess the gender, you definitely like guys. I could be wrong."
We were about halfway, from the town square, as we continue the game until I asked, "How did you find out about you being into guys? Sorry, if that's too personal."
"I guess I always knew. My body gets excited around guys instead of girls. Other than that, I never thought any girl was cute or pretty in the sense of attraction. How about you?" Simon spoke as if he had nothing to hide.
"I don't really remember, but it's similar to your story. I felt affection toward both." I remained silent after that.
A little while longer, about five minutes, we pulled up next to the courthouse and got out the car. I looked around for the first place to take Simon to.
