Why is it every time you’re nice to me, I just end up liking you a little bit more?
“Damn this came out of nowhere huh?” Dave grumbled as he took off his jacket and threw it over him and his best friend.
It was suppose to be a normal day, just two bros, hanging out finally after years of talking over the computer. It wasn’t suppose to rain. It was suppose to be sunny the entire week that Dave was visiting. But then again, when has life ever been easy for John Egbert.
John had been nervous ever since they had planned this entire thing. Don’t get him wrong, he was super excited for Dave to visit. That was actually the most exciting thing that would happen to him all year. But it didn’t make him any less nervous because, let’s be honest here, John had a bit of a crush.
Wait that’s a lie. This wasn’t a crush. Not anymore anyway. During the game, sure, John had some sort of feelings for Dave, but that was totally Bromance. Nothing romantic about it. Just guys being friends. But at some point, something changed. They started talking more, started flirting more, started yurning to visit each other more. And John was in love.
He was in love with his best friend and he didn’t want to do anything about it cause that would ruin everything. Dave wouldn’t like a dork like him. Dave would make an uncomfortable distance between them. The exact opposite of what John wanted. And the exact opposite of what was happening right now.
The rain came out of no where, and it was a downpour. But of course, the ever ready Dave Strider was prepared and improvised, using his jacket as an umbrella for both of them, and pulling John close so his little buddy wouldn’t get wet. And John loved every moment of it.
He was so close to Dave he could feel the heat coming off the other boys skin. The blonde had removed his rain spattered shades and let his crimson eyes be seen by anyone who was near. And the only person around was John.
“Don’t worry Egbert, we won’t let a little rain ruin the day right?” Dave placed his hand on John’s head and ran his fingers through the dark locks as he tried to reassure the depressed looking dork that they could still have tons of fun today, even if was raining. There it was again, the rare Strider kindness that Dave only seemed to give a few people. And he always was nice to John. Always.
Every time Dave was nice to him or protected him or laughed with him, this little “crush” only got worse. Every time he was nice to him, this happy feeling in John’s chest only got stronger. But he frowned because he knew it wouldn’t last.
John wasn’t sad about the rain. No, the rain had brought his best friend, his crush, closer than he had ever been before.
John was sad that eventually the rain would stop and they would never be this close again.
Such is the fate of the Dork with a crush on the Coolkid.
