Joseph laughed as Marc stuck his tongue out at him from across the classroom. It was a free period so they could talk but the two boys were separated from one another for fighting. They got in trouble of course but only got a warning.
Joseph looked at him and sighed pointing to his math homework. He wiggled his fingers and sparked a blue fire on top of Marc's head. His mind was half distracted from how cute he looked today and how they had a date tomorrow.
The fire made a little heart above his head and Marc laughed. Joseph blushed and made it dissipate. A blush spread through his cheeks and rose to darken his tan skin. The bell rang and Joseph walked over to Marc's desk. Nina was already over there giggling about some boy or whatever. "Oi. Hey babe." Marc said his Irish accent shinning through and Joseph smiled and kissed the top his head ruffling his jet black hair.
"Awwwwwww." Nina says and Roy walks over with Shawn. "Guys we have to go to an assembly. There was some fight in the hallway and now we ave to go get lectured about using our powers." Roy says staring at Marc & Joseph. They both smiled innocently and walked hand in hand to the auditorium.
"Is everyone here good. Good. Now settle down kids. LISTEN UP....." The dean yelled into the microphone and the chatter stopped. Marc rested his head on Joseph's bony shoulder. Joseph tousled his hair and and the dean said "Now can I have the two people who fought in the hallway this morning." He says. It's not a request- it's a demand.
Joseph stands up dusting off his knees and helps Marc up. They walk up to the front of the auditorium, Joseph whispering in Marc's ear, "Hey do you think we are gonna have to state the reason we were fighting." Marc just shrugs and they get to the dean.
"Of course it was you two. Anyway why don't you tell everyone why you were fighting." He says and Marc groans. "Isn't telling our parents enough?" Joseph says and the dean shrugs, "They said to do it." Marc giggles and pokes Joseph. "Of course they did." He says sighing.
"Well we were fighting because we were um trying to figure out where our date was going to be." Marc says and Joseph nods. "Yeah but don't worry we didn't get hurt." They said to calm the younger kids. One of the kids calls out, "What about that bruise on your jaw?" She says and Joseph stiffens. "Oh that I just tripped and fell. Nothing to worry about."
He smiles brightly and the dean ushers them off. He goes on a rant about fighting, peace,wars,etc. Joseph opens the door to the auditorium and swiftly goes to throw up in the trash can. "Hey Joseph, do you want me to get your pills?" Marc asked worried.
"No. I can't take more than two daily." He answered and wiped his mouth. "Anyway, the dean told my mom who hopefully won't tell my dad." He said and Marc hugged him. "Yeah. So I say we go look at the flowers." Marc said smiling and pulled him along to the greenhouse.
"Look at my Tulips they are thriving." He said brightly and Joseph laughed "Yeah they beautiful- just like you!" He said and Marc blushed. It spread through his face and made his freckles stand out more.
He cupped his hand around Joseph's face and stood on his tiptoes to kiss him. "Bleh. Acidy." He said and gave Joseph a mint. "Jee thanks. Anyway what are you gonna do for the winter holidays?" Joseph said as Marc put on gloves and started weeding.
"Oh you know the usual stuff. Think we can convince your parents to let them take a trip to Ireland." He said smiling. "Yeah. My dad is going on a trip there anyway. Milo and I will probably will be able to. Though I'll have to stay in a hotel with him. My mom and Rosie will probably stay home." Joseph said and they smiled at each other.
"Good. Now take off your shirt I need it." Marc said and Joseph took it off, handing it to him. Marc's eyes gazed at him and his eyes follow the scar on his chest. "Jesus. It's as prominent as the day he gave it to you." Marc said sighing and gather all the weeds in Joseph's shirt. He stood up and threw them away.
"Hmm. I mean at least you can walk around without people staring at you." Marc said tracing it. "Wish it said 'I hate my son cuz he is gay' Not 'F-----'." He said laughing and Joseph smiles putting his shirt back on. "At least my grandfather loves me." Joseph says and they walk back to the dorms. Marc's phone rings and he answers it. "Ok. Ok. I'll tell him." He hung up. "You're brother is pissed.'' He said worried.
Joseph sighed and flopped on his bed. "He can't get in the dorm unless-" His sentence gets interrupted when Rosie barges in. "Ohhhh brothhhherrrrrr I suggest you hide in the bathroom." She says and Joseph sighs.
"Well I mean he can't hurt me. We are on school grounds." Joseph says and Marc flops on top of him. Rosie jumps on top of Marc and Joseph wheezes. "Just cuz I'm tall does not make me strong." He says and they get off. Rosie goes and grabs Marc's fluffy blanket and wraps herself up in it.
Milo smacks open the door and wheezes. "SEE I said he can't hurt me." Joseph says laughing and Milo holds the finger up. "I- I leave for ONE WEEK and I come back to find out you got in another fight. Oh hey Rosie, Marc." He wheezes.
"Ummmmmm. Ye." Joseph says and Milo sighs. "Anyway. I'm bored entertain me." Milo says and flops on Marc's bed. Marc sighs and they turn on the tv. Rosie and Milo eventually end up leaving and Marc gets some food from the kitchen. "So thankful we can make food in our dorm." He says and Joseph laughs. They eat dinner and sleep intertwined together.
