FIC THING: AU WHERE FRANK IS A FLORIST AND GERARD IS A CUSTOMER AND A DORK
OH MY GOD THIS IS SO CUTE YES PLEASE
Gerard walked into the flower shop. It was an old place, small, and probably family owned by the looks of it. He’s never been here before, he just needs to ask for directions.
Gerard walked up to the counter. There was a young boy working, and that seemed to be it. He had dark brown hair and tattoos everywhere. His eyes were beautiful, Gerard felt like he could get lost looking into them. He was a short boy, but not scrawny.
“Hi, may I help you?” the boy asked. His smile was contagious; it looked like it could light up the whole room.
“Uhh…” Gerard responded. He couldn’t stop staring.
“Excuse me? Sir?”
“Oh. Oh! Right!” Gerard woke from his daze. “Sorry about that.”
“It’s fine. May I help you with something?” The boy’s voice felt like music.
“Um.. yeah. I need flowers,” Gerard said. He mentally cursed himself. He didn’t need flowers! He didn’t want to spend thirty dollars on flowers!
“Yeah? What kind? Who are they for?”
Something clicked in Gerard’s head.
“They’re for a future boyfriend. Uh, what do you recommend?"
The florist stood and thought for a moment.
"I personally would go with roses, but they are becoming more and more cliche.”
“Okay, I’ll take a dozen roses, then,” Gerard said. The boy smiled at him which caused Gerard to smile back.
A few minutes later, the boy returned with twelve long-stemmed roses. He placed them on the counter and grabbed his sharpie and a card from the rack.
“Who is this addressed to?” The gorgeous boy asked.
Gerard leaned over the counter to get a closer look at the boy’s name tag.
