The people in the restaurant were staring at the gorgeous blue eyed, black haired boy, with sad eyes. He had been sitting alone at a table for two for almost an hour. The waitress kept coming over to ask him if he wanted to order but the boy kept insisting that his boyfriend would be there any minute.
Alec looked down at his phone his black hair falling into his face. A frown formed on his face, and the little hope that his boyfriend might show up drained from him, when he saw the bright screen displaying no messages. At first Alec had been hopeful that he would show up, but now Alec was just angry. They had been dating for almost a month and Alec was just now realizing what an asshole he was. He never showed up for their dates, leaving Alec sitting alone while people looked at him like he was a kicked puppy. He never called or texted Alec. Plans they made only ever fit to his schedule and it didn’t matter if it got in the way of Alec’s. He was such an as-. Alec’s eyes were dark now and there was a scowl on his face.
Alec was getting angrier by the minute when the waiter walked over to the table again
“Sir are you sure you don’t want to order?”
“No I think I’m about-” Alec was starting to get up when a man he had never met before came over and interrupted him.
“Sorry I’m so late, babe, traffic is crazy right now,” Alec gave him a confused look but let him sit down anyway because he was beautiful. His hair was spiked up and was that glitter?! His eyes shone like the night sky and his lips looked so soft. He was wearing jeans and a shirt with more glitter on it. “I’m Magnus. Just go with it, yeah? Whoever didn’t bother to show up is a dick,” he added in an undertone.
Alec smiled at him and told the waitress to bring them some drinks.
Later, after Magnus had saved Alec from another embarrassing night alone, the two walked out of the restaurant together laughing and smiling. Alec was actually glad that his boyfriend had stood him up. If he hadn’t Alec never would have gotten to meet Magnus.
Magnus looked over to Alec, “You know I had a really great time tonight,” he started then looked down, nervous to say what he wanted, “maybe next time we could go on a real date?”
Alec was shocked, “I would r-really like that,” he stuttered out.
Magnus smiled and gave him his number.
Looking at Magnus smile like that Alec couldn’t help it. With a burst of courage he didn’t know he had, he leaned down and gave Magnus a quick kiss before walking off, feeling happier than ever.
