[size15 [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Handlee][Handlee [center Kaoru is sweet young man in his mid-twenty. He has been in love many times. He dated quiet a few girls but it just didn't seem to work out. Something didn't feel right. Kaoru parents were very strict and religious when he was growing up. They told him a man could only love a woman. It was a sin to love another man. At the time Kaoru agreed with them. As he go older his views changed. He started to find men more attractive than women. What would he do if he started fall in love with another man? He didn't know what to do about these feelings. It wasn't like he could talk to his parents about this. Surely they would disown him?
That's the rough idea that I have. We can always add on twists.
I need someone who's willing to play a strong male.

Axel climbed into the cab, allowing the other to enter first. He was happy to leave the club and the inevitable drama that would ensure if he stayed around. Tonight had been going well and he wanted to continue to have a good time. It wasn’t everyday that he made a new friend. Acquaintances, yes. But he felt he could consider Kaoru more than an acquaintance considering they had partied together and were now getting late night food. [+green “Hmm...my favorite food? Well, I’m a huge slut for pasta. Any kind of pasta really...oh! And bread!”] he said with a chuckle. He was always the person in his friend group that would ask the waiter for more bread. There was no shame in his love for it.
A blonde eyebrow rose at Kaoru’s idea of cooking for him. [i This boy is a prize…] He shook away further thoughts and scolded himself for his wandering thoughts, telling himself that it was the alcohol talking. Outwardly his facial expression showed no sign of his internal argument. A smile lit up his face, the corner of his eyes crinkling. [+green “You cook? I really admire anyone who can cook something even remotely delicious...I never acquired the skill.”] He folded his hands in front of himself and gave a small bow to Kaoru. [+green “And of course I would love to hang out with you again. Not just for the cooking either. Honestly I already consider you as a friend.”]
A comfortable silence filled the car and Axel closed his eyes, leaning his head back against the stiff cab seat. He felt content with how the night was going. Definitely not what he had expected when he left work, although the unexpected nights always made for the best stories. Hearing Kaoru speaking again he opened his eyes to look at him. He tilted his head, resting a hand in his blonde locks, a pout forming on his lips. [+green “I don’t think you talk to much. You’re fine just the way you are. Never apologize for being yourself, my friend.”] His tone was slightly serious but a smile was plastered on his face as he spoke.
The cab stopped in front of the diner that was their destination. Axel handed him a couple of crisp bills before climbing out of the backseat and holding the door open for Kaoru. [+green “I’m glad you’re having a good night, though. I hope this meal will make it even better!”] His blue eyes shone with excitement. He hadn’t realized how hungry he actually was until the smells wafting from the diner hit his nose. [+green “I want to get a whole plate of mashed potatoes. And a club sandwich...with extra bacon,”] he said happily as he strolled towards the entrance of the diner.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale He nodded in agreement as he walked with Axel to the cab that had pulled over for them. It was nice to have room to breath. [#ff310a "Yes I'm ready to go..."] he said as slid into the cab with. He glanced at the window back toward the club. His eyes landed on the figure that were once above him. He looked way and then back to Axel. He smiled softly as he try to forget about what he had over heard.
[#ff310a "So what is your favorite kind of food anyway. "] he said with a small smile. [#ff310a "I was thinking that maybe I could cook dinner for you sometime...I mean when I haven't drank this much that is...I'm a pretty good cook..."] he said said as he started to ramble. He then stop and sighed softly. Maybe Axel wouldn't want to see him again. It would be so lovely if he did. [#ff310a "I mean if you want to hang out with me again that is..."] he said with a small smile.
Kaoru eyes went back to glancing out the window. He watched as they past street lights. Kaoru was starting to recognize the area. They were getting close to his family's restaurant. He knew there were many diner and other small restaurants around but they weren't as high end as his place. He didn't mind he still enjoyed going out and going to other place.
Kaoru always loved cooking, when he turn 20 his father past the family restaurant down to him. Kaoru had been all over the country learning new things and way on how to cook. That was a thing of the past now. It hard to believe he had made it through all that plus schooling. His parents made sure he studied hard in school. Even thought college he always had his parents watchful eyes. So far luck had been on his side. The restaurant was successful he still enjoy cooking.
Kaoru snapped back to reality. He wonder what Axel did for a career. He wanted to ask but he didn't want to pry. It was probably already to much asking him to come over. It's not like these two were best friends. They had only just met. So far this night had been one of the best night he ever had. Maybe it just been so long since he had fun. How could think this? He just broken up with his girlfriend but being with Axel made him forget about her.
[#ff310a "I'm sorry if I talk to much...Or space off a lot...it's just been a long night...but a good night "] he said with a smiled as he looked towards Axel.
A bright smile lit up the blondes face, happy that his food invitation had been accepted. He could feel himself getting woozy from the booze and lack of food in his stomach. Not eating dinner had been a rookie mistake that he would surely pay for tomorrow. Despite that he wanted to make the best out of the rest of the night. [+green “Ah yes, I should let them know that I’m heading out. I’ll catch up with you outside,”] he said before watching the smaller male depart from the restroom.
Once he was alone in the restroom, he turned to the mirror to study his face. He looked surprisingly good for as intoxicated as he was. He smoothed back his hair and then quickly exited the room, not wanting to run into his ex in such an isolated space. The music and lights of the club immediately greeted him when he stepped outside of the dimly lit restroom. Axel expertly maneuvered through the crowd until he was back in front of the stage where he had left his friends. Two were nowhere to be seen, but Rico was still close to where they had started. He leaned in to say that he was heading out and Rico raised an eyebrow. [b “Where are you taking that innocent man?”] Axel let out a hearty laugh and fake punched his friends shoulder. [+green “Wow, you think so highly of me. We’re gonna hit a diner to recover from alcohol woes.”] Rico smiled, though he still looked skeptical. It wasn’t often that Axel left early without a handsome man on his arm. [b “I knew there was a nice person hiding in that black heart of yours.”] Axel stuck out his tongue and sashayed off towards the exit.
As Axel made his way out of the club he thought about his friends comment. Although Rico had been joking, what he’d said about his heart being black was pretty close to the truth. His random flings had gotten a bit overboard, even for him. He kind of missed the days when he thought true love was something attainable, but after his experience in the only serious relationship he’d ever had it had turned him off from that idea. If he wanted to keep himself from getting hurt again it was best to avoid anything serious.
The outside of the club still had groups of people hanging around, some above on balconies and others mingling around the door to smoke. Axel caught a glimpse of his ex up on one of the balconies and instantly averted his eyes, though he was sure the other had seen him. Sure enough the phone in his pocket alerted him of a text. [i [b Axel don't play games. You know I'm the only one for you.]] Scoffing at the text, he slid the phone away and avoided looking up at the balcony again. He had no interest in playing any mind games at the moment.
Seeing Kaoru waiting for him was a much better sight anyways. He lifted a hand to wave and smiled. [+green “Ah! I almost forgot what it felt like to actually have space to move,”] he joked, waving his arms side to side. [+green “Ready to head out?”] He motioned towards a cab that pulled up against the curb.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Kaoru blushed softly as he heard the familiar voice speaking to him. He glance over to see Axel standing behind him. The blushed on his faced darken. [+Red "It would probably best if we left....Yeah food really do sound good...or maybe just some water..."] he said as he held his stomach.
He did feel a lot better after vomiting but his stomach was still up set slightly. Maybe sitting down in the car would help. Then water and food. What could go wrong with that. [+red "I'd love to get something to eat with you!"] he said with a smile. Kaoru couldn't help it he love spending time with Axel he really didn't want to end just yet. Even thought they had just met today.
Today had really been a great day. This was probably one of the best day he had in months. Most the time it was just a fake happiness. That was something he just grown use to he almost forgotten what it truly felt like to be happy. Kaoru smiled softly as he looked down toward the floor then the looked back up and smiled. [+red "Lets go..."] he said but the then paused.
[+red "Do you need to say goodbye to your friends before we go?"] he said he looked at Axel. He felt a bit rude leaving but there was no way he be able to making back up there. Not after falling in crowd a losing his buzz. Kaoru try his hardest to seem normally. In all honesty crowed places scared him. All those people, he knew they weren't all looking at him but still his people anxiety still got in his way, and taunted him.
[+red "I'll wait outside for you"] he said with a soft smile. He made his way out of the bathroom. He slowly made his way to the exit. This place was exciting and so full of color. It kind of made him was to cook. Kaoru smiled softly as thoughts of having Axel over popped into his mind. This another thought appeared what if Axel didn't want to see him again after tonight? It's not like they were dating or anything of the sort. They were just two strangers that surprisingly had common interested and got a long well.
Kaoru let out a jagged breath when he stepped out side. He looked up towards the stars, the sky was beautiful just like a glittering gem. The cold night air felt great. Kaoru had gotten quiet hot after the whole ordeal. As he stood there silently glancing at the stars. He could heard the sound of people on the balcony above talking. Only catching a few words here and there it made him gasp ever so slightly when he hear Axel mention. Kaoru shook his head surely it was probably just a misunderstanding. Probably not even the same person. There was no way Axel was just play-boy. He was too nice.
Kaoru smiled as he sea green eyes landed on Axel. He was so happy that he was here. He was ready to go and to leave this place.
The music combined with the people cheering was almost deafening, though Axel wasn't one to complain. He liked when it was so noisy that he couldn't even hear his own thoughts. Especially tonight. Lost in the sea of people and swaying to the music, he almost failed to notice that Kaoru had fallen to the ground. [+green "Are you alright?"] He attempted to shout over the music but his words were drowned out by the loud pounding and the shouting. His eyes followed Kaoru as he disappeared into the crowd. Worried for the young man Axel leaned close to Rico's ear to tell him he would be right back. If anything bad happened to Kaoru he would feel solely responsible. He had brought him here after all.
Axel made his way to the restroom, assuming that was where someone drunk would end up. When he entered the men's room he found Kaoru standing at the sink. He examined the male with an understanding smile on his face. That was the look of someone who had just puked their guts. [+green "I had you pegged as a lightweight and I was right. Do you feel better after throwing up? I always feel better after throwing up, though I usually throw up the day after."] The blonde stepped closer to Kaoru and ruffled his hair. [+green "Do you want to leave? I can definitely walk you home or get you a cab."]
Axel pulled his phone out of his pocket, preparing to order a ride, when his stomach let out a loud grumble. The last time he had eaten was probably around lunchtime. [+green "Actually Kaoru, would you like to get some food? I know a great diner in the area and apparently I'm starving,"] he chuckled and pointed to his noisy stomach.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Kaoru smiled when Axel chuckle at his heartless remark. It wasn't long before Axel made one. Kaoru snickered [#ff310a "Of corse... I don't mind helping you out. You done a lot for me taking me out here and cheering me up."] he said with a smile.
Kaoru smiled softly as he looked at the people around them they all started to cheer happily. Kaoru felt Axels hand on his shoulder. He followed after him wobbly. He drank quiet a bit, but he was having a great time. As a male that resemble a mermaid, came out on the stage music got louder. People crowed around the stage. The people on the stage with their under the sea decor look extravagant.
Kaoru was normally quiet shy around all these people with the number of drink he had he didn't care anymore. He was just happy to be with Axel and his friends. He smile softly as the people dance around the stage. He then felt some hips sway into his. He didn't seem to mind until the alcohol hit his brain he couldn't help but to fall. His face turn beat red as he slowly got himself back on his feet.
He slipped away from the stage and ran off to the bathroom. How embarrassing. It was quiet obvious he was bad at holding his liquor. This was the first time he had ever drank that much. It wasn't like he did this ever day he had off. He normally just drank at home, that was only if his girlfriend or his parents weren't over.
Once had it to the bathroom he close himself in a stall. The fall to the floor really unsettled his stomach what made matters worse was he hadn't eaten supper yet. He took a deep breath trying to hold it in but he couldn't. He really hoped that no was in her to hear him vomit. Surely they laugh or think wrongly of him. After a vomiting couple more times Kaoru stood up and after cleaning the stall a little. He then moved to the sink to clean himself up. Perhaps it was time that he left. He didn't want to ruin Axel good time. He didn't want to be more of a burden then he already way.
Axel was surprised with the concern Kaoru seemed to show. Most of his friends were trying to ignore the situation, knowing that talking about it often made him even angrier. However, his angry feelings seemed to fade upon hearing [i "Want me to make him cry?"] which was followed by an innocent smile. The blonde male laughed loudly, probably louder than he should have but the alcohol was starting to effect him now. [+green "That was kind of scary Kaoru, such a sweet smile paired with harsh words,"] he said, still laughing.
[+green "I would love nothing more than to see him cry but I don't think people that have no soul are capable of such emotions. He is but a hollow shell with a pretty face."] The venomous words tumbled from his mouth followed by a wry smile. [+green "If he comes over here though, will you pretend to be dating me? I would make Rico or Glenn do it but he knows them already."]
The lights around the club dimmed and the light on the large stage got brighter. Everyone started cheering as a drag queen with a microphone made a grand entrance. They were on the shorter side but wore heels that were at least six inches. A dress that resembled the scales of a fish reflected off of the lights and their makeup was also underwater themed. [b "Good evening gays and gals! I'm Mistress Madame, as you may know, and I'll be keeping this show moving along tonight."] After cracking a few jokes, the queen introduced someone else who took the stage and started lip syncing to a popular song.
Groups of people rushed to the stage, throwing money and singing along with the drag queen. Axel gently grabbed Kaoru's hand and led him closer to the stage, his friends following behind. When they reached the stage Axel joined in with the singing in dancing, him and Rico bumping butts to the beat of the music.
~No worries! People get busy! It's fine :)~
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Kaoru smiled softly as he listen to closely. It really was cheering him up. Surely he would regret drink so much in the morning but right now he was just living in the moment. He suddenly seen the cheerful expression on Axel face fade. He wonder why? It didn't take long for him to understand when he said something about his ex being here.
He felt bad for the man. Knowing how it felt being in the same room with your ex. Always on edge, thinking that they are watching you. Surely they probably are judging your every move. Kaoru sighed softly as he thought of away to make Axel feel better. He felt bad known there wasn't much he could do.
He listen to Axel's friends chattering. [#ff310a "Are you okay?"] he said as he whisper softly in Axel ear after he had sat back down. Kaoru looked at the green shot. He gulped the shot then looked back to Axel. [#ff310a "Want me to make him cry?"] he said boldly but dryly, as he kept a cute but innocent smile.
Kaoru might of had a lot of problem of his own but he wasn't just going to sit back and watch his friends suffer. Even thought he just met Axel he felt rather close to him. Axel was attractive for a man. He love his happy-go lucky personality it was very charming.
~ Again I'm sorry for the delay -_-' I don't mean to be this slow at posting... I was just really busy last week... I had to dog sit it was very difficult getting sleep...~
A bright smile lit up the blonde's face at Kaoru's statement about his friends. They were definitely different and at times they annoyed the hell out of him, but he couldn't imagine life without them. They all had each others backs even when the rest of the world spit in their faces. [+green "You're right. I prefer being different, it makes life more interesting. You seem a little different too, Kaoru. Maybe that's why we get along so well."]
Axel waved his hand at the other male. [+green "There's no need to thank me. It's really my pleasure. I hope this helps cheer you up, even if it's only a little bit."] An elbow being shoved into his ribs almost caused the tall male to fall from his cheer. Rico apologized but turned Axel's chin near the opposite end of the bar. His happy smile faded as his eyes settled on a familiar face, a gorgeous man with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Axel scoffed and quickly looked away, [+green "Looks like I have my own problems with an ex to worry about now. I'll be right back."]
The previously chatty table stopped talking and watched as the blonde made his way to the bar. They all shared a look of worry as they glanced between the bar and the man that was known as Axel's ex. [b "It's been awhile since they've seen each other and it looks like he's here with someone. I smell drama cooking,"] Rico said leaning in towards the table so that everyone could hear him. The others agreed and expressed how immature it was of the other male to show up, only mentioning bits and pieces of what seemed to be a nasty breakup.
When Axel returned to the table with a tray of shots, everyone returned to their cheery selves. Axel, however, seemed irritated. He threw the shot back down his throat quickly and tapped his fingers against the table. His eyes focused on Kaoru and he tried to muster up a smile. [+green "Sorry about that. I just feel a bit unsettled knowing that he's here. And it's not that I miss him, I don't. We were a hot mess. Always on again-off again. It was tiring."] The tall male leaned back in his chair, trying to keep his eyes from seeing the familiar face again. He wanted the male to see him though, here having a good time with his friends. Happy and free from his clutches.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Kaoru smiled softly as he got into the car with Axel. Kaoru was nervous but excited, he never been to a drag show but surely it would be entertaining. Seeing grown men prance around in dresses. Sometime those men wore those dresses even better than the women. Honestly Kaoru didn't mind, he parents always scoffed when they seen cross dresser.
When the car stop Kaoru got out with Axel. He looked at th brightly colored building. Kaoru followed behind Aexl. He got a little nervous when seen the crowd of people. When he got closer he found there was nothing to be afraid of. Axel introduced all of his friends. Axel and his friends were just as friendly as friendly could be! Kaoru was happy to know there were still friendly people out there. Kaoru blushed softly when he got complimented on his hair. [#ff310a "Thank you"] he said with a sweet smile.
He followed the group into the building. He eyes lit up as they scanned around the crowed room. There were men in dresses, and other customs. They all looked beautiful. Kaoru was excited when they got a close table to the stage. He was glad he was going to be able to have a good view. Kaoru smiled softly as shot were brought back to the table. He felt bad for letting Axel friends pay for it. [#ff310a "Thank you so much"] he said with another smile.
Kaoru took the shot of the bright green liquid. It tasted great, it was sweet it almost didn't taste like alcohol at all. Kaoru smiled as hear Axel speak to him. Kaoru smiled softly when he heard the name of their queen. [#ff310a "That's a cute name."] he said with a smile. [#ff310a "They are just fine!"] he said with a smile. Kaoru lean close to Axel and whisper softly into his ear. [#ff310a "They might be a little different but there nothing wrong with different! I really like them. They seem like great cheerful people to be around."] he said
Kaoru smiled softly as he sat there silently in his chair. His eyes were still dancing around the room. Glazing and glance at people here and there. Kaoru eyes landed on someone dressed very cutely. They had cat ears and even a tail! How cute the thought to himself. He then glance back at Axel and smiled. [#ff310a "Thank you for bring me here"] he said with a smile.
[center ***Sorry for the delay!***]
[quicksand Axel was glad to hear that his advice wasn't unwanted. He didn't usually give advice to people he had just met, but it was good to know that Kaoru hadn't taken offense. A cheerful smile lit up his face when the other male called him handsome. He knew that he was attractive but it was always nice to hear it from someone else. [+green "Well, keep calling me handsome and you can vent to me anytime. I accept compliments as a payment for my services."] His tone was playful as was the wink he directed towards Kaoru.
The blonde was sure that Kaoru was going to turn down his offer. He could hardly blame him considering that he was a stranger and apparently had never been to a drag show. It wasn't everyone's cup of tea, though Axel preached that everyone should experience one drag show in their lifetime.
Axel clapped his hands giddily when Kaoru accepted his invitation. [+green "Ooh your first drag show~ How exciting! We'll have so much fun."] He slid a tip to the bartender and twirled out of his seat. He stretched his long limbs into a sassy pose. His dramatic actions stemmed mostly from excitement but the alcohol was definitely causing an effect now. Party mode Axel was almost upon the world. [+green "I'll get us an uber and then we'll be on our way!"]
The ride to the club was no longer than ten minutes, but Axel still tipped the uber driver well. When he climbed out of the car the vibrant neon light above them made his hair look every color other than blonde. The sidewalk outside of Bootsie's was bustling with people that all looked slightly drunk. Some drag queens that were in the show stood around in their high heels and big wigs. Their makeup almost glowing underneath the neon lights.
A group of three saw Axel and immediately waved him over. Axel smiled and waved back. He led Kaoru over to the group and introduced him.[+green "Everyone this is Kaoru. Kaoru, these are my friends Glenn, Rico, and Mari."] Both men had glitter beards. One was wearing booty shorts with a bright tank top (Rico) while the other wore a nicely tailored suit (Glenn), as if he had just come from work. The girl, Mari, had bright pink hair and wore a tight black dress with fishnet stockings. All three of them greeted him excitedly, Rico loudly expressing his love of Kaoru's hair color.
Eventually the group shuffled inside and found a table close to the stage. A pop song boomed through the club and people danced wherever they were. It was noisy, but not to the point where you couldn't hear the person next to you. Glenn excused himself to by them all drinks. [+green "So, this is Kaoru's first drag show. We just met at the bar but I thought he could use some cheering up and I think being in the presence of queens is just the thing."] Rico gasped dramatically, [b "First drag show? Oh my goodness Axel, look at you spreading the 'gay agenda'."]
Glenn returned from the bar with five bright green shots. Axel downed his immediately and slid the glass towards his friend, insisting that he would buy the next round. A drag queen wearing a sequined dress and brown curly wig stopped at their table and Axel's three friends jumped into an excited conversation.
[+green "That's our friend, Owen. His stage name is Princess Gumballs though."] Axel explained, turning his attention to Kaoru. [+green "I hope my friends aren't too overwhelming. They're always like this."] He chuckled and rested his head in his hand.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Kaoru listen to Axel's views on love. Perhaps he was being a little bit bitter saying love was a lie. Kaoru nodded it was true he really need to start living his life. He was scared to take that step. [#ff310a "That is true your advice hasn't fallen on deaf ears. Just having someone to talk to is really all I need... I just need to vent sometimes..."] he said with a sigh.
He closed his golden colored eyes. He rubbed the back of his neck when he heard the male talk about going to a drag show. He had never been to one and he was bit nervous. What if he parents found out? They would probably beat, or yell at him. [#ff310a "Oh you really don't have to worry about me handsome"] he said with a small smile.
[#ff310a "I've never been to place such a place before...It really sound fun but... I..."] he looked off to the side. He was be to timid. [#ff310a "You know what I think I would love to go! If you don't mind a stranger coming with you..."] he said with a soft sigh. He just met this guy but it felt like they had been friends for years. Maybe it was just the alcohol making it so easy to say things. Kaoru pay for his drink after leaving a nice tip. He then jumped out of his seat and smiled. [#ff310a "Lead the way!"] he said with a soft smile. He was still a little nervous going with Axel but why not it sounded like it would be fun.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand][quicksand Axel definitely agreed that true love never seemed to last. In his opinion true love didn't even exist. They were all just bumbling humans obsessed with the idea that someone out there was their perfect match. [+green "I wouldn't call true love a lie. It's more of a...fantasy? Something we've come to strive for because of literature and films. Not to sound cynical, but that's just the conclusion I've come to."] Listening to Kaoru talk more made Axel feel bad for him. His parents were never overbearing. They always made it clear that they just wanted him to be happy and they never took an opinion on his love life or job choice. Even so, he realize that not everyone had parents like his.
[+green "Hey, I know they're your parents and have helped you but you've got to live your own life. They won't be the ones waking up next to your partner."] He ordered another mai tai and twirled the straw around absentmindedly. Why was he giving life advice to this stranger? He wasn't qualified in the slightest. [+green "I'm no therapist. I don't know why I'm giving advice. Its probably the booze but...I have a few friends that have parents who don't agree with their lifestyle. It seems difficult to deal with."] Axel downed the mai tai and pushed the empty glass away. Drink number four and now he was starting to feel good. He was ready to tear up the town.
The blonde's ears perked up at the word 'drag'. [+green "Nothing to apologize for. I really don't mind. Speaking of drag though, would you like to accompany me to a drag show? One of my friends is a drag queen so all of my friends are heading to Bootsie to cheer him on. I feel responsible for lifting your spirits! A cutie like you shouldn't be moping in some bar. The night is young! "] Axel barely knew the male but he wouldn't feel good leaving him all alone.
[size15 [center [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kurale][Kurale Karou blushed softly and nodded. [#ff310a "Yeah probably... I've lost count of all the shots I have had"] he said with a soft chuckle. He continue to sip at his drink. [#ff310a "Kind of embarrassing huh?] he mumbled.
[#ff310a "Yeah... I suppose that is true love never seems to last...It's all just a lie?"] he said as he tried to hold in his bitterness. He smiled softly as he heard the male apologize. It wasn't like he cared on how the male handled his relationships. This wasn't his first break up. He should of been able handled it but it just stung. He felt lost. [#ff310a "I suppose that is true but i've never bother to try a date app....My parents always find someone they think would be a perfect match... It's not like a have much choice to decline since they have help me so much...."] he said with a sigh.
[#ff310a "I'm sure my mother probably call me ten times already wanting to know what went wrong."] he said with a sigh. When the male came in close he couldn't help but to blush a little. He listen to the male whisper into his ear about how it didn't matter. He was right that was easier said than done. [#ff310a "You are so correct ! Sadly I feel like walk on shaky grounds with my parents and any minute I'll fall...."] he said with a sigh. He ran a hand thought this red color hair. He really need to change the subject. He was sounding so depressing.
[#ff310a "Please forgive I don't mean to be such a drag..."] he said as he looked down at his drink. Perhaps it was time he left to go home. Home to where his phone was probably blown up with multiple missed texts and messages. He seen the male glance at his phone. Maybe he was planning on leaving too.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand][quicksand The bartender slid Axel's third drink in front of him. He wasn't drunk in the slightest, perhaps mildly tipsy, but he could definitely drink more. He squinted his blue eyes at Kaoru and shook his head. [+green "No need to pay me back. It's on me. I'd buy another one, but you kind of seem like a lightweight."] Axel said the last statement in a joking way though the other male did seem way more drunk than him. His statement was confirmed when Kaoru mentioned that is was his first time out at a bar. Yup, definitely had to be a lightweight.
Axel swirled the straw around in his drink. He was trying to think of how to respond about Kaoru breaking up with his girlfriend. Relationship advice was not his strong suit. He couldn't even remember the last time he had been in a relationship that lasted longer than a couple months. Probably in college, though that felt so far in the past and surreal.
[+green "Six months is a pretty long time in this day and age. Dating apps have seeped into our lives making it convenient to find a quick fling. I'm guilty of it and so many others are as well. So kudos to your for surviving six months!"] Realizing that what he said probably didn't come out the right way, Axel bit one of his knuckles. [+green "Shit. Sorry that probably sounded terrible. I am the worst person to talk to about relationships."]
Usually Axel wouldn't feel the need to apologize, but he felt bad for Kaoru. It was his first time in a bar and he got stuck chatting it up with him. Axel wasn't exactly known for being empathetic. He was known for not caring and "living his best life", as his friends often said.
Axel leaned in closer to the red and white haired boy wearing a mischievous smile. [+green "Can I let you in on a secret?"] He downed the rest of his mai tai before speaking again. [+green "Don't worry about what other people think. I know its easier said than done, but at the end of the day your own happiness is what matters most. To hell with everyone who tries to impose their will upon you."]
Axel ordered a shot of tequila that he downed with a quickness before checking his phone. There were many responses in the group chat confirming that everyone was meeting at Bootsie, a local gay club, to watch a drag show and get drunk. It sounded like a plan to Axel. [i Maybe I should invite him? It seems cruel to leave him alone at a bar wallowing in his breakup.]
