It was random and silly and barely 1 o’clock in the morning, but they found themselves dancing in the darkened living room to no music and a whole lot of laughter. Bash and Alex were drinking heavily to celebrate Bash’s accomplishment in getting a writing deal from his new publishing company.
Alex had prided himself on making sure that Bash would receive an amazing deal just by giving him confidence. Bash stood up and walked in front of Alex and held out his hand. He took it and began dancing with him. He was awkward at first because he’s not used to doing weird, random things, but he wanted to with Alex. It wasn’t so bad after they started because it was just them, and he felt comfortable with him, especially in his arms.
“I’m so proud of you, baby,” Alex whispered in Bash’s ear. He snuggled into his neck without a response. The silence was calming for Bash. The thoughts inside his brain ceased, at last; he felt at peace in a long time. He knew it wasn’t going to last long, but it didn’t care, he enjoyed it. He looked up at Alex and gave him a quick kiss. He didn’t expect him to kiss back as fiercely as he did. Bash pulled his hands through Alex’s hair, tugging a little, which he moaned in acceptance. Their lips moved in sync, moving their hands over each other’s bodies. After a few minutes, they stopped breathless.
“I love you so god damn much,” Bash gazed in Alex’s eyes.
“I love you,” Alex kissed his forehead and smiled. The two began dancing again, this time with some alternative music from Bash’s playlist. By the time a few songs passed, they were so drunk and ready to pass out for the night. Alex was soberer than Bash, so while Bash couldn’t walk straight or take off his shoes, he helped him so he could comfortably sleep. Alex then curled next to him, and Bash woke slightly, enough to move to lay onto his chest and immediately fell back asleep.
Alex watched him sleep so peacefully. It has been a long while since Bash slept before him, not only that but so tranquil. He usually worries about him because he’s always so restless and tense, so being reassured allowed Alex to sleep more comfortably than usual.
