KLangst Week is here!!! I’m so excited. Today was Unrequited love/unrequited pining. I am a sucker for pining Keith, so here we are. @klangst-week
Rating: T+ for mild swearing
AU: Modern, wherein Keith pines over his best friend and is guilty for it
It was windy. So windy that Keith wondered how Lance stood upright as he did.
Well, okay, disclaimer. It’s pretty typical of Oklahoma to be windy, and as someone who grew up in the area, Lance was a bit experienced in high winds, Keith supposed. It was crazy, downright insane weather and winds so powerful that Keith wouldn’t be entirely surprised if it was enough to pull brick buildings up off of their foundations.
In all honestly, Keith was a little afraid that that might just be the case, and Lance’s parent’s house would be blown clean away.
When Lance roped Keith into watching his parent’s house with him, Keith thought that it would be a fun time; it would just be Keith and his best friend, hanging out in Lance’s childhood home. There were plenty of snacks, the bed Lance put him up in was pure heaven, and the flatscreen they used frequently was fantastic. It was going to be a good time. Hell, it was going to be great!
Well, that’s what Keith tried to trick himself into believing.
This day the wind came, changed by stealth from yesterday. A feeling rearranged the furniture and lay a ring of brittle gold upon the grass, a scent, windows closed towards cold, while, we, our dreams ferment.
A tidal furrow, ploughed stars swim the endless night, the moon hangs between cloud, a siren song in flight. But certainty decays and, blindly, seeds regrets; the wings of what now gaze where autumn casts her nets?
