1. Breaking the kiss to say something, staying so close that you’re murmuring into each other’s mouths
Eddie backed up against the bathroom stall, wrapping his arms around Richie’e neck and pulling him as close to his body as possible. Richie kept one of his hand’s on Eddie’s waist whilst the other cupped his cheek, stroking his thumb over his skin and sighing into his mouth when Eddie ran his tongue over his bottom lip. Richie had texted Eddie nearly 10 minutes ago to meet him in the bathroom and they hadn’t left it since, even though Eddie was halfway through his last lesson of the day and Richie was supposed to be in P.E.
After a few more minutes, and after Richie started running his hand up under his shirt, Eddie broke away trying to steady his breathing and gulp in as much air as possible. Richie didn’t move back, their noses bumping together and their lips grazing every so often. Eddie looked Richie in the eyes with a dazed expression and Richie smiled down at him.
“I need to get back.” Eddie whispered against Richie’s lips. But the taller boy shook his head, their noses rubbing against each other, making Eddie giggle slightly. That just made Richie’s heart melt even more.
“Stay.” Richie mumbled as he pressed their lips together again. “Stay with me.”
8. Being unable to open their eyes for a few moments afterwards
It was a Saturday, and Eddie had once again agreed to have a video game night at Richie’s house, which meant junk food and staying up till sunrise and talking about everything and anything. There friendship had always been like that, but then when things started to change, mainly when Eddie started seeing Richie as more than a friend, the game nights started becoming less frequent. Eddie was scared if he stayed around Richie too long he’d do something he would regret, but eventually he realised he had to just suck it up, that their friendship was too important to throw away just because Eddie had a crush.
But on that particular Saturday, as Richie put in Legend of Zelda and Eddie started thinking about what it would be like to kiss him, Eddie realised he had to do something about his feelings. He wasn’t going to bottle them up anymore, it hurt too much. So Richie played his game and Eddie watched, glancing at him every so often, taking in his concentrated face and his frown whenever he got into a boss battle. Eddie blinked at him, and watched as Richie died, again, and threw the controller to the ground.
“Fuck this game!”
“I mean seriously, who invented a boss battle THAT hard?!”
“Rich I need to-”
“Eds, you need to try this man, maybe you can beat thi-”
“RICHIE!” Eddie shouted, finally getting his attention. Richie jumped, but looked at him and stared.
“What?” He asked. Eddie paused, then put his hands on either side of Richie’s face, and pressed his lips against his. Richie froze, and so did Eddie, but then Richie moved his head forward, wanting Eddie to feel the pressure of his lips. He wanted this too. Eddie sighed and wrapped his arms around Richie’s neck, tilting his head to get a better angle as the two finally started to move their lips together, feeling each other’s breath on their skin and the occasional flick of their tongues.
It didn’t last long, Eddie having to pull away for some air, but when he did he kept his eyes shut. It was like he in a dream, and he curled himself up towards Richie so their chests were pressed together. Richie sighed, his eyes not being able to open either, as they both basked in the moment.
“Didn’t think you had that in you, Eds.” Richie breathed, and Eddie smiled.
“Never underestimate me.”
16. When one person’s face is scrunched up, and the other one kisses their lips/nose/forehead
Usually, Richie would be annoying Eddie for attention. He’d always be studying or reading or watching TV when Richie decided he wanted to make out. But now, it was Eddie’s turn to be desperate. Richie had been learning how to play guitar, and it had taken up all of his free time. All of his and Eddie’s time, to be more precise. And Eddie was getting bored.
“Richie.” Eddie whined, leaning his head on his boyfriend’s back as he watched him strum some chords over his shoulder. “Will you put that down?”
“I’m nearly done, Eds.” Richie said quietly, strumming and writing down the chords so he could remember them. Eddie sighed dramatically and flopped down so his head was next to Richie’s knee.
“You said that twenty minutes ago!”
“I promise this time.” Richie chuckled, seeing his boyfriend pout up at him with a frown. Richie hesitated than sighed as Eddie wouldn’t stop glaring at him, his face all cute and scrunched up. Richie leaned down and pressed a kiss to Eddie’s forehead, and brought his face up to look at him. Eddie was still sulking. “Oh come on!”
“Kiss me properly.” Eddie demanded and Richie rolled his eyes before doing just that, pressing his lips hard against his boyfriend’s and stroking his hair. Eddie grinned into the kiss, and even pulled away to start peppering Richie’s jaw with tiny kisses, but Richie laughed and pulled away, only making Eddie whine. “You’re mean!”
“And you’re fucking adorable.” Richie said, going back to his guitar, but enjoying the feeling of Eddie reaching up and playing with his hair whilst he practised.
