What's Dumb?

Ethan sighed in frustration, causing Mark too look up from his phone.
“W-what?” Mark asked quizzically.
Ethan looked down, “This is dumb.”
“What’s dumb?” Mark questioned, still confused.

“Holding hands,” Ethan replied, as though it were obvious.
Mark looked down at their intertwined hands; he didn’t see anything wrong.

When Ethan gave no further explanation, Mark slowly let go of Ethan’s hand.
“Okay then,” Mark mumbled, returning his attention to his phone.

“I don’t mean I don’t like it. I just don’t get it,” Ethan added after a few minutes of silence.

Mark furrowed his brow. “I’m lost.”
“Like…Why would you hold someone’s hand when you can hold all of them?” Ethan pondered, not meeting Mark’s eyes.

Mark began laughing, which made Ethan the one with the questioning look this time. “You could’ve just asked me to cuddle you, Ethan,” Mark said through his laughs.

Ethan was blushing, and probably would’ve said something defensive if Mark hadn’t pulled the younger boy onto his lap and began pressing kisses into his neck.

full confession:

I tend to feel ashamed whenever someone mentions me being a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan. The main reason for this is because of my Mom continually asking me “What does it even teach you in life?” rather angrily. She is a bit accepting now but I still feel ashamed even when my friend mentions me loving a character from the show. While it is true and I won’t deny it it can be embarrassing for me.
