“I still don’t think this is a good idea.” Raleigh stood to the side, watching Yancy and Tendo set up. If you could call wheeling kegs of beer into his kitchen as ‘setting up’.
“Well it’s a bit late for that now.” Tendo remarked as he dropped a case of yet more beers onto the counter.
“Chuck hates parties, especially surprise parties.”
“Tough shit, your boyfriend’s turning twenty-two and we all need an excuse to get drunk and make terrible decisions.” Yancy stated. “He’s getting a party.”
“Well, at least there’s enough alcohol here to make him forget how much he hates them…” Raleigh mused.
“That’s the spirit-“ Tendo started, but all three of them froze when they heard the sound of a car pulling up outside.
“Oh shit, he’s home.” Yancy paled. “What the hell is he doing back this early?”
“How the hell should I know?!” Raleigh was starting to freak out now. None of the other guests had even arrived yet. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise party without all those people to shout surprise and scare the shit out of the guest of honour.
“Stall him! We’re not done setting up back here.” Yancy hissed and pulled out his phone and started dialling.
Raleigh wasn’t sure how in the hell he was meant to stall him, especially long enough to get the damned party started.
He made it to the door just as Chuck pushed his key into the lock and turned the handle. He was a little taken aback to find a slightly out of breath Raleigh waiting for him right at the door.
“Hey! You’re back early.” Raleigh greeted, a little too loudly.
“Err, yeah… class got cancelled…” Chuck eyed him suspiciously.
Raleigh flinched when he heard the distinct sound of a can hitting the floor. He made a mental note to throw it at whoever was guilty of dropping the damned thing.
Chuck’s eyes narrowed. “The hell was that? Is someone back there?”
He made to move past him but Raleigh stepped in front of him and blocked his path.
“What? No. It’s just you and me here.”
“What the fuck is going on Ral-”
Chuck was abruptly cut off by Raleigh shoving him up against the door and crashing his lips onto his. It was the first thing he could think of and well, it hadn’t failed at distracting Chuck in the past. And he couldn’t deny that it was working now too. Chuck’s hands were in his hair and his tongue was in his mouth, tasting every inch of him.
Normally Raleigh was the one who was shoved against walls or various pieces of furniture and having his mouth devoured by Chuck. This was certainly a pleasant surprise for him. One he could definitely get used to.
Raleigh barely gave him enough opportunity to breathe; he lips were back onto Chuck’s after every brief break for a quick gasp of air. Chuck’s hands trailed down his back and came to rest on his ass.
“Gross, dude.” Raleigh broke off the kiss and stared back at his brother who had leaned out of the kitchen door. So much for the distraction.
“Take that shit some place else, guys.” Tendo called from the kitchen.
“Oi, the fuck are you two doing in my kitchen?” Chuck let go of Raleigh and moved past him and marched out there to kill his brother and friend.
So much for that particular surprise.
