“Do we have to?” Liam whined as Mason dragged him towards the entrance to the club. “You know I hate dancing.”
“I’m not letting you spend another weekend laying on your couch moping about Theo leaving,” Mason said. “Now that you’re out and proud, you deserve to find someone nice.”
“Mason, I appreciate your concern, really, but-“
“No buts!” Mason exclaimed as they entered the club. “Besides, it’s too late now.”
Liam sighed, but decided to humor his friend. And who knows? It might be good for him to get out for a while and meet some new people. He couldn’t spend the rest of his life pining after Theo.
After everything that had happened, Theo had gotten the hell out of dodge, claiming he needed time away from everything so he could figure himself out. Liam hadn’t wanted him to leave, but he couldn’t just come out and say that, so he let Theo go with a heavy feeling in his stomach.
Now, two months later, he was openly bisexual and still pining after the chimera.
“Come on, let’s go dance,” Mason suggested, pulling Liam onto the dance floor. Corey was already there, waiting for his boyfriend with a grin. It didn’t take long for Mason to ditch Liam after that.
Dancing was fun. Even without a partner, the songs were catchy enough that he was able to move without feeling weird about it. A few people approached him and would sway for a few minutes before moving on. It was fun.
“Hey,” a voice said from behind him. “Wanna dance?”
Liam turned around, ready to take up the stranger on his offer, only to freeze as soon as he got a look at the guy’s face. Everything around him seemed to slow down, his heart pounded in his ears, and his blood roared.
It was Theo.
“Liam,” Theo said, looking just as surprised as Liam felt. “What are-“
“How long have you been back in town?” Liam demanded, fury and adrenaline pumping in his veins.
“I just got back tonight,” Theo said. He looked around and winced. “Maybe we should talk somewhere quieter.”
Liam nodded and grabbed Theo by the wrist, pulling him over to one of the tables in the corner of the club. “Why didn’t you tell me you were back? Or coming back?”
“I wanted to surprise you,” Theo said with a sheepish smile. “Surprise.”
“What are you doing here?” Liam demanded.
“What are you doing here?” Theo countered.
Liam glared. “I’ve been pining over you for two months and Mason got tired of it so he dragged me here. Your turn.”
“I applied for a job,” Theo replied.
Liam nodded. He took a moment to stare at Theo, unable to believe that the chimera was sitting right in front of him. “Dance?”
“God, yes,” Theo said with a grin. He grabbed Liam by the hand and pulled him onto the dancefloor.
As the two moved together, smiling and sharing kisses underneath the flashing neon lights, Liam couldn’t help but think that this - this was exactly where he wanted to be.
Right here, in Theo’s arms.
