You’ve got to be kidding me. Dan thought as he felt a raindrop plop on top of his (straightened, for goodness sake!) hair. He looked up at the sky and scowled at the grey clouds that were threatening to spill. Quickening his pace, he adjusted his grocery bags and headed toward the tube.
Not even four minutes later he heard an “Oof!” and was knocked to the ground. His groceries went flying and he prepared himself to scream at the rude entity that was making his day a whole lot harder.
“Oh my god I’m so sorry! Here, let me get these for you! I was walking my dog and it started to rain so she bolted and I tried to stop her but I failed,” the stranger rambled. He handed Dan the bags that had been catapulted and sat down to catch his breath.“I am so, so sorry. Susan, really? I’m gonna have to remember to check the weather forecast before walking you anywhere. I’m Phil, sorry to have to make your acquaintance this way.” Dan sighed and held out his hand, and Phil grabbed it and pulled him up. Phil’s dog, Susan, was a shibu inu, and she was adorable (as well as Phil), and Dan found himself smiling.
“It’s alright, really. My name is Dan.”
It was really starting to pour and he realized his hair had definitely gone curly again. He groaned.
“Is everything okay? I mean other then the fact that I probably just ruined your day?” Phil said nervously.
Dan laughed softly and said, “Hobbit hair. I spent twenty minutes trying to straighten it earlier but it was a massive waste of time.”
“Don’t worry about it, it suits you. Now, if you aren’t busy, can I take you to get ice cream? I mean, I kind of owe it to you after what just happened. If you want, we can stop back to my place and you can borrow some dry clothes before we go,” Phil said hopefully. Dan smiled at him and they headed off.
“You look like you’d be my size. I’m gonna feed Susan, you can wear anything you’d like,” said Phil. Dan nodded as Phil left the room, and started searching through Phil’s wardrobe. He had some really cool clothes (not any black, unfortunately), and Dan settled for a pair of skinny jeans, a plain t-shirt, a Muse sweatshirt, and a pair of socks with little foxes on them, and went to find Phil.
“I can’t believe you like Muse too, it’s one of my favorite bands,” said Dan.
“Believe it, you’re wearing my merch,” Phil laughed. He grabbed Dan’s hand and pulled him towards the door.
After a ten minute walk huddled under an umbrella, the two stopped at a small vintage-style ice cream shop. They each ordered and Phil asked Dan to find them seats.
“I need to pay first,” Dan said, confused.“I’ve got it, silly boy. I owe you.”
Dan blushed. Lending him clothes, sharing his umbrella, and buying him ice cream just because his dog knocked him over? Phil was too kind.
“And here you go,” Phil smiled as he handed Dan his ice cream. The men chatted for a while, and eventually they realized it had been a fairly long time some they had finished their sundaes.
“Well, thank you so much Phil. This was really nice of you. If you, ya know, ever want to hang out again since you’re pretty cool and all, uh, here’s my number?” Dan stuttered. Phil laughed and typed Dan’s number into his phone. They threw out their napkins and exited the shop.
“Wait, you have a bit of chocolate of your nose,” Phil said with a smirk. Dan felt himself turn more red than he thought possible as Phil leaned in a bit to gently wipe away the fudge with his thumb. Dan looked at him and slowly closed the distance to press a gently kiss to Phil’s lips. They smiled shyly at each other and headed their separate ways.
