“Kiss me.” & “Wanna dance?”
John Laurens could not get Alexander Hamilton off of his mind. They’d been friends for some time now, nearly three months, but all he could think of was how he wanted more, then he felt guilty for feeling that way. Alex didn’t need John complicating their friendship and his life like that. Besides, wasn’t being friends with Alex enough?
No matter how many times he tried to convince himself he could remain platonic with Alex, it never sunk into his brain. He couldn’t deny the way he felt around the other boy. He just hoped that he could keep his resolve up for the next twenty-four hours, since he was going to the Washington’s for a sleepover with Laf, Alex, and Hercules. He just needed to make it through the night without confessing how he really felt about Alexander.
The night was going incredibly well so far. They’d had pizza, played some games outside, and now they were in the Washington’s basement watching a movie. Lafayette was curled up against Hercules’ side, his head on the larger boy’s shoulder. Laurens was between Hercules and Alex. The latter boy was practically a little ball–– his knees hugged up to his chest, arms wrapped tightly around them.
Laurens could feel the nervous energy radiating from Alex, but he didn’t know how to help him. So the two just sat stiffly next to each other for the first forty-five minutes of the movie, when suddenly Alexander stretched out his limbs and leapt off the couch.
“I’ll be back. Keep it going,” he mumbled, quickly making his way up the staircase to the main floor of the house.
“Is he okay?” Laurens asked when the other two boys barely reacted.
“Mmm,” Lafayette hummed. “He has a lot of energy. Our little Alexander cannot sit still for very long,” he said with a chuckle. His eyes met Laurens and a devious grin lit up the French boy’s face. “But, my Laurens, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind some company…”
“Wh-what?” Laurens stammered, his freckled face turning red. “I wouldn’t want to bother him like that.”
“Dude, go find him. You wouldn’t be bothering him,” Hercules said.
“O-okay…” Laurens said, slowly getting up.
“We won’t stop the movie!” Lafayette called after him with a laugh.
Laurens took a deep breath, trying to ignore Laf’s teasing. You’re just going up there as a friend, he reminded himself.
Laurens looked in the kitchen and living room, but there was no sign of Alexander. George poked his head out of his study.
“You looking for Alex? I think he went upstairs,” the man said with a smile.
“Thank you, sir!” Laurens said before dashing up the stairs.
Sure enough, the door to Alex’s room was open and a hiphop song was playing from somewhere inside. Laurens peered in to see Alexander pacing his room and muttering. It didn’t seem like he was singing along with the lyrics, but more like he was talking to himself.
Laurens gently knocked on the door, causing Alexander to jump in surprise. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you!” Laurens exclaimed. “I just wanted to make sure you’re okay?”
Alex smiled at the other boy. “Just too much energy to sit still,” he said. “Hey, wanna dance with me for a minute?”
Laurens grinned. “Sure!” He joined Alex in the center of his room and the two began to jump and move to the quick beat. After about three songs, they were both out of breath and flopped onto Alexander’s bed.
They laid there panting for a few moments before Alex finally spoke.
“You know, there was one more reason I just had to get up.”
Laurens turned toward the smaller boy, leaning up on his elbow so he could see him better. “Oh, yeah?”
“Yeah…” Alex’s tan face started to turn red. “Um… it was you, actually.”
“M-me?” Laurens stammered. “Did I do something? I’m so sorr-”
“No! It’s not anything you did!” Alex said quickly, sitting up and letting his head drop into his hands, his fingers anxiously combing through his dark curls. “It’s just… I couldn’t stop thinking about how close you were to me on the couch. It made it hard to stop thinking about…”
Laurens swore his heart had stopped beating for a moment. Was it possible Alexander felt the same way as Laurens did? He’d never even considered that as a possibility.
“Wh-what couldn’t you stop thinking about?” Laurens gently prompted.
“How badly I wanted you to kiss me,” Alexander whispered.
Laurens was silent for a moment, so shocked he swore he must have misheard the other boy.
“See, I ruined everything!” Alexander exclaimed. “I’m so sorry. Please just forget I said anything?”
“Kiss me.” Laurens said.
Alex looked up at him. “What?”
“Kiss me, or I’m going to kiss you.”
Alexander grinned Laurens, tears forming in his eyes. He leaned in, their lips meeting, their bodies electrified. They both had no doubt it was the best first kiss of their lifetimes.
