Summary: 8 years later, some things never change..
Genre: Cavity-inducing fluff
Phil laid awake in his-their, their, bed, his arms behind his head, eyes fixed on the ceiling. The room was filled with darkness, except for a sliver of moonlight that filtered through their window and cascaded onto the man lying on his chest, curls falling past his forehead.
It all felt so familiar.
The room, the way Dan laid oh so perfectly on his chest, the way his hair curled on end. It reminded him of that mid October day, the air crisp and chilly, eight years ago.
Phil suddenly remembered how nervous he was. The moment the train pulled into the station, the realization sunk in. His knees shook, his hands trembled, and his heart nearly leapt out of his chest. He was paranoid that Dan changed his mind, had decided that he didn’t want to meet him after all.
That all changed the second he saw the timid mop of brown hair step off of the train and onto the platform. Dan was hugging himself, almost looking down as he walked, his cheeks a rosy raspberry color.
Phil fell immediately. He was doomed as soon as he laid eyes on Dan. His eyes went wide and the when Dan looked up at him and cracked that wide smile of his he was absolutely smitten.
That night was filled with lots of giggles and gentle touches, but the next night was spectacular.
The room was heavy. Giggles turned into desperate, intimate breaths, and their hips moved as one. Dan’s hair curled on end, his lips parted, legs wrapped delicately around Phil’s waist. His head was buried in Phil’s chest, love bites dotting his neck and collarbones like constellations. Dan’s thighs trembled the whole time, and he clung to Phil the rest of the night.
The rest of that night was spent in a dark room, Dan laying on Phil’s chest, Phil staring at the ceiling, whispering sweet nothings in Dan’s ear as he slept.
Much like it was eight years later. Except, now, they’re engaged, two silver bands decorated their ring fingers. Phil had finally found someone that made him think marriage wasn’t just a piece of paper.
They’d been looking for a forever home, browsing dog breeds that would complete their little family. They’d been doing everything together for the last eight years. And they wouldn’t have it any other way.
It was a beautiful love.
