Apollo figured that he made the right decision, since both of their hands stayed in place for the entire movie. At first it made it hard to focus on the film, but after awhile it was just as comfortable as the cuddling. When the movie was ended he stood up to stretch and smiled at Dorian. [#123456 "I liked the movie too! I'm glad we saw it together."] He shook his head at the question about gummy bears. His stomach felt like it couldn't hold any more food.
When they got back to his car Apollo was feeling a mixture of happiness and sadness. He was happy that the date went well, but wasn't really ready for the night to be over. [#123456 "I'm not really ready to head back...though I don't know where we'd go from here. This date has been um, really great, so thank you. And I would love to spend more time with you on a second date? If...if you're interested."] Apollo stuttered and tried to keep eye contact with Dorian as he opened the car door for him.
Dorian was expecting Apollo to freak out so the jump didn’t catch him off guard. He did his best not to smile or laugh since he didn’t want Apollo to think he was making fun of him, that wasn’t the case at all. He just thought Apollo was really cute since he was so shy. [i I shouldn’t mess with him like that. I don’t want to freak him out too much.] He thought and eats a gummy bear.
When their hands touched Dorian could t keep the male from his face. This made him happy since he took it as a sign that Apollo was ok with his hand being there. They stayed in that position for the whole movie. Once the movie ended Dorian sits up straight and stretches his arms out in front of him. He looks at Apollo. “The movie was good huh? I like it.” He smiles and then stands up. He grabs his jacket and the rest of the gummy bears since he wanted to take them home. “Do you want anymore?” He offered since he knew they were just as much Apollo’s.
Once they had everything they walk out of the room. [i I’m a bit sad the day is basically over. It was great though.] He thought as they walk to Apollo’s car. “Are you ready to head back?” He stands in front of Apollo and looks into his eyes.
Apollo stuck his tongue out at the green gummy bear question, not having time to respond before the movie began.[i The green ones taste so bad. I can't even describe how bad they taste.] He thought as he focused on the large screen in front of him. Usually he hated the whole experience of going to the movies. The loudness, the brightness of the large screen, and the sometimes crowded rows of seats. This experience with Dorian was proving to be different. He felt comfortable and relaxed with the male cuddle up at his side. And the movie was pretty good too. He was definitely engrossed in the action on the screen.
When he felt Dorian's hand rest on his thigh, his whole body jumped as a reaction. He had been so focused on the screen that the very personal touch caught him completely off guard. Apollo looked down at the dark haired male to inspect his facial expression, but Dorian was looking at the screen. [i Maybe he just shifted a little and his hand ended up on my thigh...Should I move it or say something about it? I don't really mind it being there but I don't know what it means. Is it a signal? Am I supposed to do something?Maybe I should stop worrying about signals, ah, but I don't want to ruin the date.] Apollo could feel his heart speeding up as too many thoughts buzzed around inside his head.
Feeling that he was taking too long to correct his initial jumpy reaction, Apollo placed his hand on top of Dorian's. [i I hope that was the right thing to do? Hopefully he didn't even notice that I jumped.]
Dorian wasn’t as shy as Apollo, he was a bit more out there but he liked that Apollo’s as wanting up to him. [i He smells nice. This is comfortable. I’m liking this date.] He thought and just takes in the moment. When he felt Apollo’s arm around him he couldn’t help but feel his heart race a bit. He didn’t understand why he was so nervous but then again he assumed it was because he really likes Apollo and wanted the date to go smoothly.
When Apollo fed him the gummy bear he chuckles and takes it from Apollo’s hand with his mouth. “How can you not like the green one?” He asked and chuckled quietly. Before they could talk about anything else the movie began to play. Dorian focused on the movie as he cuddled with Apollo and ate the snacks they had.
During the whole movie Dorian would glance at Apollo every now and then, his mind would drift from the movie to Apollo. Dorian wanted to push the boundaries a bit so he rested his hand on Apollo’s thigh casually. He didn’t look at Apollo. He just did it and kept his eyes on the screen. [i This isn’t too risky. I mean it’s not like I’m moving my hand all over his body. He should be ok.] Dorian thought.
Thinking about what Dorian said about his parents not allowing him to eat many sweets growing up made Apollo think about his own parents. His mother never scolded them about food or really anything. Although, he rarely caused trouble and wouldn't have put up much of a fight if she had banned sweets or junk foods. [i We have pretty different parents. I wonder if I'll ever meet his...] The sound of the armrest between them being lifted snapped him out of his thoughts. Eyes widening, he watched as Dorian moved closer to him before resting his head on his shoulder and cuddling into his side.
[i This is...is this okay? There aren't many people and I have to admit this is nice. Warm. And he smells nice...] Apollo accepted the new joined position in their seats. Even though it made his heart hammer against his chest and his palms sweaty. He had been on maybe three movie dates in his entire life and not knowing what was expected of him made him unreasonably nervous. [i Just be natural. For once in your life, Apollo.] He wrapped his arm around Dorian so that his hand now rested on his waist and used his other hand to hold a green gummy bear in front of Dorian's lips. [#123456 "Please don't bite my head off, mister,"] he whispered in a silly voice.
Dorian chuckles softly and nods his head. “Yeah I’ve been thinking about it since dinner.” He said honestly. “I’m curious is all. You can’t blame me Apollo.” The young male felt comfortable around his friend to tell him the truth. He didn’t think it was a bad thing that he was thinking about what Apollo’s upper torso looked like. [i Apollo should be flattered that I want to see it.] Dorian thought.
Once they got their snacks Dorian helps carry the popcorn. “I’ll eat all of any color you want me to.” He said since he liked them all. “Growing up my parents didn’t really allow me to eat sweets or certain foods so now that I’m older I like a lot of the things I couldn’t have.” He said as they walked into the theater room. The place was nearly empty, there just a few people seated and that made Dorian happy. He didn’t like a crowded movie theater.
The two sit down and Dorian relaxes in his seat. They didn’t have people sitting on the side of them or in front or behind. [i It almost feelings like it’s just us in the building.] He thought and put some popcorn into his mouth. Dorian placed his now free hand on his lap since Apollo had let his hand go. His dark blue eyes connected with his friend’s for a moment. He smiled at Apollo wondering what he was thinking about. [i It’s pretty quiet in here and we’re so close to each other.] Dorian adjusted himself a bit while lifting up the arm of the seat and moves closer to Apollo. [i Don’t freak out Apollo.] He thought and smirked to himself as he leans on Apollo. His head rested on his shoulder and his body cuddled into his side.
Hearing Dorian's teasing comment made him crack a smile. [#123456 "Aw, that [i would] be mean. And hey! I never said I wouldn't let you see, just that you couldn't see it right there in the restaurant. Have...have you been thinking about it since dinner?"] Apollo blushed and wiggled his eyebrows playfully. Was he being forward? Was Dorian being forward? [i This is flirting, right? Its pretty fun to flirt with him.] He thought as he handed the employee money for the two tickets. Hand still attached to Dorian's, he led them into the theater and towards the concessions. [#123456 "I don't think I've ever had popcorn and gummy bears together. I probably haven't had any sweet snacks or foods since that cake from the anniversary party so I'm down for gummy bears. As long as you promise to eat all the green ones."] He chuckled and stepped up to the counter to order the snacks.
Minutes later they were in the theater 12, where the romance-action movie was showing. Apollo scanned the available seats and decided on a pair of seats that were directly in the middle both ways. He plopped down and finally let go of Dorian's hand, though was a little sad to do so. There weren't many people seated so far and Apollo could feel nerves settling into his stomach. [i On a date are you supposed to pay attention to the movie or make out during the movie? I don't want to seem like a prude but...ugh, I'm thinking about everything to much.] He turned to look at Dorian with a nervous smile, popping a few gummy bears into his mouth as the lights dimmed.
Dorian spend most of the car ride trying to picture what Apollo’s body looked like. [i He’s tall so maybe his more lean than muscular? But the way the sweater fits him it seems as if he does have muscle. Six pack?!] He thought just trying to figure it out since Apollo wouldn’t show him. When they arrived at the movie theater Dorian was caught off guard by Apollo grabbing his hand. He snapped out of his thoughts of Apollo’s mystery body and looked down at their hands. A small smile crept on his face as he walked with Apollo. [i This is nice.] He thought.
There were several new movies out, Dorian was taking into consideration what Apollo liked and didn’t like. “I should make you watch a horror since you won’t let me see what your body looks like.” He teased and looked at Apollo. “But I’m not that mean.” He chuckled. “Why don’t we see this one.” It was a action movie with romance. He figured it would satisfy both of their likes. “And yes we must get popcorn and gummy bears.” He said seriously. Dorian has a sweet tooth and he just had to have something to snack on. “I hope you’re ok with that.”
Apollo chuckled at Dorian's comment about feeding him and shoved another salmon roll into his mouth. [#123456 "Believe it or not, I work out often. I'd say I'm on the way to a god-like bod. I would lift up my sweater and show you, but, uh we're in public. You'll just have to picture it in your mind,"] he teased, flashing a devilish grin at his friend. He surprised himself by how easily the words came to him. Just a week ago he would have felt completely uncomfortable saying something like that to Dorian. [i Hmm, I wonder if he likes well built body types? Although...I can't see anyone ever having a problem with someone having a nice body.]
He put some thought into what movie genre they should settle on, chewing as he argued with himself mentally. [#123456 "I'm fine with anything as long as it isn't horror. If I'm being honest...my favorite genre is probably romance,"] he smiled sheepishly. Apollo was a sucker for cliche plots, predictable characters, and happy endings. After eating until he could not fit any more food in his stomach, he leaned back in his chair and stretched. A satisfied smile lined his lips. When the waitress came back with the check he began to reach for his wallet only to discover that Dorian had beat him to it. [#123456 "Tsk, sneaky."]
When they arrived at the movie theater Apollo opened the passenger door for Dorian yet again. This time he took Dorian's hand in his own and intertwined his fingers with it as they walked up to the ticket booth. It felt weird to make them move to hold someone's hand, but he didn't hate it. [#123456 "I'll pay for the movie since you paid for dinner. Pick whichever one. Oh...and I know we just ate but should we get popcorn for the hell of it?"]
“I’m going to pay too. You don’t have to pay for everything.” Dorian looks at Apollo. He then chuckles at his comment about having people feed him. “Hey it won’t taste as nearly as good if I’m not the one feeding you.” He smirks and eats some of the fish. “You must have the body of a Greek God if you want to be treated like one.” He teased. [i Of course you don’t know what his body looks like. Maybe he has a well built body. Heh I would probably have to feed him again if he does.] He thought.
The two really began to eat once the entrees arrived. “I do want to go to the movies. I’m like most genres. What about you? I’m sure we can find something to suit both of our tastes. I know there a really good action movie out.” He eats some of the calamari. “I’m so happy right now.” He chuckles and keeps eating. Dorian really did enjoy good food.
When they finished eating they had enough to pack up and take with hem. Dorian split what food was left with Apollo. He then takes out his car and hands it to the waitress before Apollo could get his card out. Dorian winks at him since he paid for the entire bill before Apollo could. The dinner was nice and easy but Dorian knew that the movie might be a bit more nerve racking since they would be sitting close together in a dark room.
Just hearing Dorian list off the appetizers made his stomach rumble. Everything sounded so good. [#123456 "It's a plan. Let's go crazy and order whatever our hearts desire. I'm buying. Hmmm...I think I'll get some miso soup too,"] he said with a smile and closed his menu. When the appetizers actually arrived he could hardly stop himself from digging in, but paused hearing Dorian suggest what to try first. Apollo made a move to grab his chopsticks to pick up a piece of the fish, but Dorian was already holding the piece of fish to his mouth to feed him.
Apollo hesitated, shifting his eyes to look at the tables around them before returning his gaze to Dorian. Now blushing, he opened his mouth slowly and received the fish. His eyes lit up as he chewed. [#123456 "That's really good! Also, maybe even better because you fed it to me. I should have people feed me more often. I am named after a Greek god after all,"] he joked after swallowing the fish.
They went on happily chatting and eating their appetizers. When the sushi boat arrived Apollo placed a hand to his forehead and pretended to faint. [#123456 "Well, ready to watch me stuff my face even more? I wonder how much of this we can really eat."] Apollo readied his chopsticks and went for a salmon roll, popping it in his mouth with a satisfied smile. [#123456 "We were going to head to the movies after dinner, right? What kind of movie were you thinking? I have absolutely no idea what's playing because I almost never watch movies. It's sad, really."]
“You would think my parents would feel the same way but nope. They don’t. I don’t see what’s so wrong with being a musician. Do they tho k I’m going to turn into some type of wild rebel or something? I don’t know. They’re just too over protective. I’m grown.” Dorian said.
Once they were seated he couldn’t help but want everything he saw on the menu. “How about you get the boat and I’ll get us some other items. Like the bbq albacore, some calamari, and their tempura mushrooms?” He asked wondering what Apollo thought about that. This way they could share all the items and enjoy the different entrees. Dorian didn’t expect Apollo to pay for their meal or anything. He actually wanted to pay for it all but he had a feeling Apollo wouldn’t let him do that. [i If he doesn’t want me to pay for it all I will at least pay half.] He thought and looks at the drinks. “Ooh tea sounds good.” He mutters. He wanted something warm since it was cool out. Fall would be disappearing and Winter will be taking over soon.
As the night went on the two talked and laughed happily. They are their appetizers and waited for their food. “You have try this first.” Dorian said as he breaks his chopsticks. He then holds the piece of fish to Apollo’s mouth. He didn’t think too much about feeding Apollo, he just did it.
A frown set in on Apollo's face as he listened to Dorian explain the stressful situation with his parents. While his own mother could be particularly annoying about his love-life, neither of his parents had ever pressured him to do any particular job. As long as he was happy and making money, they were happy. [#123456 "I think you're a brilliant artist and musician. You shouldn't have to choose between the two because your own happiness is really the most important thing."]
Apollo shook his head to answer Dorian's question. [#123456 "Nope. Never been here so I'm pretty excited to try it. I kind of want to go all out and get one of those huge sushi boats."] He was taken aback by the comment about being sweet, opening the door out of habit. [#123456 "Ah, oh, it's just uh good manners. But I'm glad you're enjoying the nice treatment,"] he chuckled. His face immediately heated up, feeling the others lips against his cheek. Trying not to draw too much attention to himself he followed behind Dorian into the restaurant.
The hostess led them to a table and placed a menu in front of both of them. Apollo pretended to drool as he flipped through the menu. [#123456 "Wow, yupp. I'm going to order the ridiculous sushi boat. I'm feeling bold and ready."]
“Yeah I got some work done but I mean it was all very stressful. My parents are harassing me about this art stuff. I got a lot of paid gigs with the band and they just had the idea of me being in a band and pursing my music. Like I love art and all but I think I really want to be a musician or at least do both. They want me to just focus on art and it’s not fair.” Dorian ruffles his hair a bit. “Even though I told them I wouldn’t make the art pieces that people were going to pay me for I did. Now I’m waiting for my apology from them.”
When they arrived his stressful mood disappeared. “Me too. I’m going to eat till I can’t breathe.” He teased. He loved that he could joke around with Apollo like this. They were really good friends so it made it easy for Dorian to be on this date without Apollo. “Have you been to this sushi place before? They have amazing oysters here. Oh and their bbq albacore is great.” When Apollo opened the door for him he smiles wide. “You know you’re really sweet. I could get use to this nice treatment.” He chuckles. “Thank you Apollo.” He kissed his cheek without thinking too much about it and walks into the restaurant.
Apollo couldn't help but laugh at Dorian's response regarding his sweater, blushing still from being called handsome. He wasn't around people enough to think about his own looks, but he was slowly becoming more aware of them. [i Hearing someone so attractive call me handsome makes me feel...really good.]
“Yeah I won’t be drinking either. I don’t want anything to get in the way of me developing any real feelings about tonight. I want you to enjoy me when I’m sober.”
The sentence took awhile for Apollo to process. He raised both eyebrows, his face turning extremely red. Did he mean...no, surely he just had his mind in the gutter. Apollo bit his lip and tried his best to avoid eye contact figuring that Dorian didn't mean anything like that at all. [i Ahhh why did I even think about it like that?] Apollo nodded his head about leaving and followed the other out of the apartment.
Inside the car his blush had finally settled down and he felt more relaxed. [#123456 "I know what you mean. I'm working on a project that requires a lot of focus but I just couldn't. I got some work done. I was just all nerves. Ah, nervous in a good way though,"] he said as he shifted the car into drive. The car ride was short and when they arrived at the restaurant Apollo realized how hungry he actually was. [#123456 "I'm going to shove so much sushi in my mouth. You'll be disgusted,"]he joked, stepping out of the car and heading around to the passenger side to open the door for Dorian.
