A Bench For Two

It was nothing at first.
Then it grew bigger.

'A Bench For Two' is a story about Gee and B. About confidence, friendship and most importantly love; though that'll always remain a mystery.

Hope you enjoy :)

G: I know it's late.

B: I don't care.

G: You can sleep here if you want.

B: Not until you feel better. Maybe I should make you some tea or something.

G: I heard that coke is good for the stomach in these situations.

B: Where do you put it?

G: Don't know.

B: Where are your mom?


G: Somewhere on this planet.

B: I'll go check it for you.

Ginette looks after his back feeling sick and tired. She closes her eyes, feeling dizzy.

B: I found -

Brendan looks at her sleeping figure, then he puts the coke on the stand by the bed. He pulls a blanket over her and sits down by the wall. He leans his head back and closes his eyes, and soon sleep overtakes him.
