Shape of You(r Freckles)
Totally what happened when they discovered each other’s freckles.
Phil woke up, no idea what time it was and almost forgetting he was back home in London. A sleeping Dan lay beside him, both of them exhausted with jetlag.
Phil rolled over, about to press a kiss to Dan’s bare shoulder when he suddenly stopped. “Whoa.”
“Hmm?” Dan murmured.
Phil didn’t say anything and proceeded to lift and examine Dan’s arm, hand, knuckles.
“What are you doing?” Dan grumbled.
Phil then looked at Dan’s face and poked his cheek.
Dan flinched and growled before glaring at his boyfriend. “What the hell are you doing?”
“You have freckles.” Phil said with the most annoyingly cute smile as he began poking the freckles covering Dan’s cheek once again.
Dan wriggled away.
“They’re so cute.” Phil gushed.
“Okay, great, I have cute freckles. Can I go back to sleep now?” Dan asked.
“Sure.” Phil told him.
Dan turned over, his back to Phil. He closed his eyes, sleep overcoming him once again.
Suddenly, he felt a finger drag along his shoulder and zig-zag down his back.
Dan squirmed. “What are you doing?” he asked in annoyance.
“Playing connect the dots!” Phil said as he continued drawing imaginary lines on his boyfriend’s back.
“Stop!” Dan giggled.
“I wanna see if they make any shapes!” Phil said.
Dan rolled over and grabbed Phil’s hands in his, stopping him from continuing his artwork.
It was then Dan noticed his boyfriend’s arm. “You do realize you have freckles too, you spork.”
Phil looked down and noticed his arms covered in freckles.
“I have too many to make any shapes, I think.” Phil said with a pout.
“Not true.” Dan said before running his finger along Phil’s arm, connecting the freckles in the shape of a heart.
Phil smiled. “Let’s see what shape yours makes.” he said before grabbing Dan’s arm and connecting the little freckles with his finger.
Dan watched, trying to make out the shape. “What is it?” he asked.
Phil looked up at Dan with the utmost innocence. “A whisk.”
“For fuck’s sake!” Dan exclaimed before getting out of bed.
