Xander had been over at Cameron's townhouse for a little while, and they were supposed to be studying for their project. Really, if Cameron could ever stay on task like he was supposed to, then Xander probably wouldn't have to be explaining the novel to him. But he was up to his usual behavior of not wanting to read, so it was left on Xander. Really, he could have read the book if he wanted to. But he was somewhat playing dumb, because he couldn't lie, he wanted to spend some time around Xander. The young man intrigued him, that was becoming obvious as Cameron pushed around his room in his computer chair, half listening as the young man explained the first chapter to him. "This is making my head hurt... It's too early for this," Cam said suddenly, looking over at him with a small laugh. "You wanna take a break?" He asked, somewhat innocently.MADE BY HEY MICKEY!

FALL FOR YOUR TYPETwo hours in Cameron's room. It was a wonder why Xander hadn't lost his mind just yet, in all honesty. X couldn't even remember when or how he developed this little crush, but being in the guy's presence was hard for him. Thankfully, not literally, but he wondered how long that would even last. They got paired together for the project and at this point neither was interested in it. The mere fact that X was working with the guy was enough to make him want to act like he gave any type of relevant damn about what they were asked to do. So even as X had to continue to try to explain the book, he didn't dare get impatient. "Uhm, sure, we can take a break," X didn't care. The project was more than half done, so at this point, what they didn't even matter to him anymore. He bookmarked the book, and sat it down before he rubbed his legs slightly.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
He nodded when X said he was cool with taking a break, glad that they were on the same page. "Okay..." He said as he stopped rolling around in his chair. He took the book from X and their hands brushed a bit, causing Cam to look up at X for a split second before he looked away; feeling a sense of nervousness overcome him. "Ah... Are you hungry? We could grab something to eat downstairs or something..." He said, realizing he was running over his words. He cursed himself in his mind, trying to calm himself down. Normally Cameron was outspoken without an issue and he was attempting to get himself back to that, for the sake of not making himself look like an idiot in front of X.MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPEThe exchange of contact was enough to make X shiver, and he actually had to grimace at his own behavior. He was always awkward around people he actually had interest in, but this had to be the worst of his awkwardness to ever show. "That sounds fine. I'm a bit hungry to be honest," He said as he stood up, trying to get that fuzzy feeling to leave his body, the same one that had completely had him feeling like he had drank something warm. He headed with him downstairs before he hopped on the counter and yawned. "So...what do you have to eat?" He asked curiously.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
"Me too.." He said, dropping the book onto his desk and leaving his bedroom with Xander. They went downstairs and Cam was glad to see that he was making himself comfortable on the counter. He opened his refrigerator, looking around and biting his lip; examining the contents. "Well... I got bacon!" He said with a laugh, pulling out the package and dropping it on the island. He was no chef but he for damn sure could make some bacon. "And Pizza Hut from last night... And..." He frowned when he realized everything else was just miscellaneous junk. "That's it." He said with a laugh, turning around to face Xander again. "Take your pick, I'm dying of options over here."MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPERubbing his chin, X just watched the young man as he went about in the kitchen, and he shrugged once he was given the choice of Pizza or bacon. Both sounded very tempting. "...We could have both," He said with an aimless shrug. "I'm really that hungry, so..." He chuckled slightly, before he hopped off the counter, going to the kitchen island before he took the pack of bacon and held it in his hand. "I'll even help cook it," He offered.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
Cameron chuckled once he heard both and nodded, pulling them both out of the refridgerator. "That's my kinda guy, let's do it then.." He said. He didn't realize how it sounded until it came out, and by then it was too late to stop it so Cameron tried to act as nonchalant as possible. Since X wanted to do the bacon, Cam directed him to the pots before turning the stove on and letting it heat up. He liked to let his pizza heat up in the oven first, for whatever reason. Since he didn't have anything to do yet, he hopped up on the counter, watching as X made the bacon. "One of these days I'ma stop taking the easy end of the stick and stop sticking you with all the work," He joked with a laugh.MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPEX's eyes kind of widened at his comment, but he kept his cool and refrained from any type of real reaction as he hopped off of the counter. Once the bacon was in the pan X started to let it fry and watched over it. He smiled a little and looked over at Cam, shrugging his shoulders. "One of these days. I don't really mind though," He said. He was just happy to be getting some food into his stomach, and it wasn't like he was objecting to spend this time with Cameron, so he wouldn't dare complain. He kept watch on the food and he yawned slightly. "How crispy do you want your bacon?" He asked, looking over at him.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
He caught the widening of X’s eyes and couldn’t help but mentally face palm. Chill the hell out, He had to remind himself as X spoke. Cam nodded, still wondering when his time would come to take on the larger responsibility in something between the two. He shrugged it off, figuring it’d come along eventually. Cam pretended to think dramatically over the bacon before coming to a decision, looking down at the food. ”Crispy, you know… Not burnt,” He said with a laugh. ”It’s on you, really. I don’t care. Bacon is bacon.” Cam said, getting down from the counter. He put the pizza on two separate plates, and then went to the microwave. The only issue was the microwave was right above the stove. Okay so maybe that wasn’t really an issue. Cam knew what he was doing when he went to put the food in the microwave; it put him in close proximities with X. Right up under him, actually. So much so that he “accidentally” bumped into X, and Cam struggled to feign a fake apologetic face as he realized just how close they were. ”My bad…” He managed lowly, looking X in the eyes.MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPEHe shrugged; personally he liked it cooked, but not super crispy, but some people liked it near burnt, so he thought it be courteous to ask. He continued to cook in a bit of silence, as Cameron proceeded to prepare the pizzas and such. But X's body began to tense a bit because he felt his 'senses' tingling. Cameron was coming closer, so close that X could smell his cologne and feel his body heat. The groan that threatened to come out when their bodies touched was forced back down Xander's throat, unable to let that shit slip out. There were rumors that Cam was on 'the other side' - secretly, of course, as Xander was. But he couldn't afford to test it. It'd be his luck to try it, and he deflect the advance, and out him to others. Cam didn't seem like the type to do that of course, but Xander had his fears anyway. He almost didn't hear the man apologize admist his conflicting thoughts of fear and lust. "It...it's fine, really," X could feel his cheeks slowly reddening, bringing actual color to his usually pale face. Fuck, He thought. He was surely fucking things up.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
Once he looked Xander in the face, he looked dazed, almost. Like he was there but he wasn’t really. Cam wasn’t sure if he should take it as a good sign or a bad sign. But once he saw X’s face begin to redden, he could slowly put the pieces together that the odds were in his favor. ”Okay…” He managed, clearing his throat. Cameron licked his lips, trying to decide on his next move. He could chance all of this, and at the most what would he lose? A project partner, for a project that he was struggling to give a sliver of a fuck about. For whatever reason, his mind wasn’t factoring in the possibility of being outed. Maybe because Xander seemed too nice to do that to anyone. There was a silence in the moment, and Cam knew it was now or never. Deciding that the time was now, he leaned in for the kill. Hesitating, he glanced in X’s eyes before lowering his own and kissing him. MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPEX's mind was kind of reeling in the moment, and in the tremors that invaded the pits of his stomach. Something inside of him was telling him to take a chance for once in his life. He usually played by rules that were pre-determined by whatever circumstances he was given, and usually got his way only because he knew he would. He hated to go for things that were even one percent of possibility of failure, but Xander just wanted to see what it was like to kiss this man...his lips when they were properly moisturized looked perfect to do so. After some inner conflict, he finally did decide to go for it, but never got the chance to, because Cameron beat him to it. His heart began to nearly thump in his chest, and a shaky hand slid up to the back of Cam's neck, gently pulling him closer although he didn't deepen the kiss. No need to get nasty with it, not yet. He pulled away after about a minute in, and reached with a free hand to turn down the heat on the bacon, almost forgetting about it. All the while, however, his eyes never left Cameron's. "I've always wanted to do that," He whispered, their lips still inches from one another.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
He didn’t back away, or push him off, or fight it at all. That alone made his heart began to pick up, and all of the signs were pointing to this going his way. He was relieved, and now that this obstacle was moving behind them as the moments went on, he was trying to plot is next move. He felt X’s hand on the back of his neck and Cam could feel his heart damn near stop. They continued to kiss, up until he pulled away. He turned down the heat on the food, and he was grateful for that because he knew good and well he would have forgotten if you left it up to Cam. His eyes stayed on X though, and he nodded at his words, feeling the same way. ”I… Me too…” He hated to be stumbling over his words again but he couldn’t help it. His mind was racing, and as close as they were to each other, his mind was racing and he was finding it hard to concentrate. Glancing down at his lips again, Cam couldn’t help but lean in and kiss him again; this time deeper than the last. He placed a hand on X’s hips lightly, trying not to give into the temptation he was feeling in wanting to touch him. He knew the more he touched, the less he’d be able to control himself in the long run. MADE BY HEY MICKEY! AT ATF.
FALL FOR YOUR TYPEHearing that Cam wanted the same thing, only made X a bit upset that he hadn't done this sooner. This all could've been already done, the awkwardness and everything included. But everything happened for a reason, Xander concluded, thus silencing any thoughts that didn't include how soft and sweet Cameron's lips were. There was just nothing that could ruin this moment. It only got better when Cam went for it once more, and the kiss deepend, making X wrap his arms around his neck slowly. He gravitated closer to Cameron, not wanting anything to keep him from his body, and the groan that he had suppressed earlier came out softly against the other man's lips.TAG: CAMERON | WORDS: LOTS |
His arms around Cam’s neck caused him to heat up a bit, and he let out a soft sigh against his lips. He could feel X coming closer to him, and he placed his hand on the man’s other hip. The groan that left X’s lips made him stiffen – in a good way – and he tightened his grip on his him, letting his fingers lightly dig into his skin. As their deepened kiss continued, Cam found himself leaning back against the counter, bringing X along with him. He broke the kiss and placed his lips lightly along X’s jawline. He was about to bring his lips to his neck when he heard the microwave beep and he could smell the bacon beginning to burn to a black crisp. ”Fuck…” He half sighed, half groaned, not wanting to move an inch from where they stood.MADE BY HEY MICKEY!
