Re: haystack, riddle, cat

I hope you like it! Definitely out of the ordinary for me. Also, long: 481 words D:

At first, Danny was sure that it was because Jackson and Lydia were on the outs again. "A haunted hayride?" Danny asks, a little dubiously, looking at the phone to make sure it's Jackson calling him.

"I have two tickets," Jackson says, "and," Jackson adds, before there's talking in the background that sounds an awful lot like Lydia, to Danny. "Just meet me there, all right?" Jackson hangs up the phone before Danny can say anything.

Fast forward an hour, and Danny's sitting on a haystack next to his best friend, thigh-to-thigh because that's how close Jackson sat. When Danny asked why Lydia couldn't come with Jackson, Jackson's scowl told a different story than his words: "I didn't ask her," Jackson said, and Danny raised his eyebrows in obvious disbelief.

Jackson's barely even paying attention to the driver as the man tells them about the horrors that await; instead, he's telling Danny about his mom's friend's cat that's staying at their house while she's out of town, and driving is Jackson insane. Danny is - confused, but he's willing to play along. Jackson only talks a lot when he's nervous or anxious, and so Danny listens, comments in the right places, and very carefully doesn't jump out of the wagon when they go into the hushed forest and Jackson holds his hand.

Jackson laces their fingers together and holds onto Danny's hand like he's afraid Danny'll rip them apart, which is laughable. Danny's spent his entire friendship with Jackson trying to solve the riddle of his feelings for his best friend, which include but are not limited to: best friends, unrequited but ignored lust, requited but platonic love, and a quiet wonder (that is definitely not pining) if there is ever a chance.

Danny takes a deep breath and gives Jackson's hand a squeeze as the first of the probably many theatrical screams are head from afar, and doesn't squash the little bit of hope he feels this time. When Jackson leans closer and whispers, "pizza after?" Danny nods, and feels flushed at the brush of Jackson's lips against his ear, hot breath on Danny's cheek. Danny leans back to look at Jackson in the eye, and can see that Jackson's aware of what he's doing, the effect it's having on Danny. For a moment Danny thinks that Jackson will kiss him right there, in the dark on a haunted hayride of all places, but instead Jackson just grins at Danny's affirmative nod.

Fast forward an hour, and Jackson's finally letting go of Danny's hand to get into their respective cars, to meet for pizza. Without holding Jackson's hand this whole night feels less real to Danny, until Jackson puts a hand around the back of his neck to pull him down for a kiss.

They don't make it to pizza, but late night (early morning) fast food is good too.

Re: haystack, riddle, cat

Oh, this wins on so many levels. Nervous is Jackson is everything I never knew I wanted and confused Danny, hoping and not knowing and then holding hands which is my absolute, fool-proof kink (shut up, it's totally a kink). And then kissing. Also kissing.

Thank you so much for writing it!

Re: haystack, riddle, cat

I'm so happy you like it! Hahaha, I was kind of wondering whether to put the hand-holding in because in their minds, they're grown-ass men and Jackson's kind of compensating for something, usually.

But then I figured that maybe this fic could be about him getting over whatever the hell he's compensating for, lol. YAY FOR HAND-HOLDING KINK I kind of adore it too.

Re: haystack, riddle, cat
