'I've known this.... It's why I'd never told you,' Jack replied is a feather light voice. His heart felt like it would burst with all of this joy. He hoped, longed, for erik to fully agree.
Erik took a deep breath. He was trying to debate on what to do. He knew he should stop it before it even started but he didn't want to. "Okay... Come to my place for dinner?" he questioned it as if he were asking Jack on a date.
'Tell me where and what time, and I'll be there,' Jack replied, his voice a bit bolder than previously. A date, wouldn't it be? Jack smiled to himself at the small, precious thought. He felt happy, the first time in eons.
Erik grinned when he saw how excited he'd made Jack. "Are you free tonight?" he asked, checking the time. They'd only been there an hour. "I can go home and get something together. I'll drop you off at your place so you can get ready?" he offered.
Jack laughed. 'I'm free every night. Of course,' he replied with a warm smile. Oh, god. This is acctually happening. I still can't believe it. It's like a dream come true, Jack's mental musings were full of joy and warmth. It made him smile even more.
((One bump for luck))
(( Oh, and happy halloween! ))
((Thanks... Sorry if I don't reply a lot. I'm in school and then outside of school I normally don't have wifi.))
Erik very much enjoyed seeing the joy of Jack. It made him smile as well. "Then let's get going. I'll take you home and then be back in a few hours once I've cleaned up and prepared dinner." he told his student, standing up to get his bag and keys.
'Okay,' Jack replied as he gabbed his bag and comic book from a nearby seat. He couldn't keep himself from smiling. The perfect day. He looked forward to tonight.
((Bumping to keep it alive :) ))
When they were both ready Erik lead the way out of his classroom, closing the door behind them once Jack was out. He would have held the younger male's hand but they were in public and of course couldn't be caught. The thought of being caught sort of thrilled Erik though he didn't voice that. "Mine is the black mustang." he said with a nod to the very nice vintage looking car. The male put his things in the back seat and got in to start driving.
Jack was impressed. 'It's beautiful,' and as he spoke, he ran a hand down the length of the car before he got in. "I like it. I've always admired classic old cars,' he noted with a smile.
Erik smiled. "Thanks. I've always liked the vintage myself." he said as he pulled from the school parking lot. "Which way to your place?" he questioned Jack.
'Left, then take a right, third house from the corner,' Jack replied softly as he admired the interior of the car. He smiled. He was in a very happy place.
He saw how the other male was enjoying himself and it made Erik keep on smiling. He drove to Jack's place and parked outside. "I'll be back to pick you up in a few hours. Do you like chicken?" Erik questioned Jack.
Jack laughed. 'Who dosen't? And I'll be waiting,' he replied with a smile as he got out, and waved goodbye.
Erik's smile broadened and he nodded. "Alright." he waved back before driving away from Jack's. His house was actually only five or six blocks away and within walking distance. He went into his house immediately, threw his bag full of ungraded papers on his bed and started to get ready for the date.
Jack entered his home and flung his stuff onto the nearby couch. He reached upstairs to his room and tried to pick out something decent, but still reflected his personality. He settled for a plain black t-shirt and grey skinnys. He also smoothed his hair out. Now it was just a waiting game.
Erik made a sort of quick yet hearty mean for Jack. He made baked pamesean chicken breasts as well as some chicken alfredo that was filled with homemade parmesean sauce. Erik let everything cook to perfection as he was showering and preparing himself for the date. He'd settled on some nice stone washed jeans and a black t shirt which he never wore to school. He looked very se.xy and knew it would be a surprise for Jack to see him in his comfy clothes. After taking everything out to cool it was a few hours later and the teacher headed back to his student's house to pick him up.
