The time passes quickly and it's finally dark outside.
"You ready to go?" I ask Calum and Luke excitedly.
"Yes we are very ready." Luke says.
I smile and jump out of Calums lap. "Let's go!"
Luke leads Calum to the backyard and sits him on a chair.
"You good man?" He asks Calum softly.
He nods and bites his lip.
"What's your problem? Why are you doing that?" Luke chuckles and pokes Calums lip.
He points down to the bulge in his pants.
"Damn it Ari!" Luke chuckles and shakes his head. "Giving the poor kid boners."
"Don't act like you don't ever have one from just seeing me!" I joke.
Luke rolls his eyes and punches Calums shoulder. "Do you need to go take care of it or are you okay?" He asks Cal.
"I need to take care of it...it's throbbing." He whispers.
I bite my lip and Luke nods. "Ari take him to the bathroom please."
"But...okay.." I get up and grab Calums hand.
I walk him to the bathroom downstairs and open the door for him. "Go ahead and..yeah." I say quietly.
He walks in. "Thanks."
He closes the door and I walk to the open back door. "Go ahead...yell at me." I say to Luke.
"I wasn't going to yell at you." He sighs.
"You weren't?" I ask.
"No. I'm not going to. You guys can do whatever you want. I'm not your dad." He says quietly
"Why does it matter so much if we kiss in front of you?" I ask.
"I just don't want him to get hurt, or regret." He sighs. "But you wouldn't hurt him."
"I..Luke..I can just..not have sex with him..ever." I say quietly.
"No. No that's not what I said." He says quickly. "Just wait till he gets his eyes back. Trust me."
"I love him." I say so only he can hear and not Calum in the bathroom."Is it too early for me to love him?"
"Maybe. But it's too late now. If you love him then you love him." He says softly.
"But...he onlys LIKES me. You heard him say it." I reply.
"He just takes longer to fall in love than you do." He whispers.
"He could be in there right now and change his mind about me." I say.
"He won't change his mind unless its because he realizes that he loves you." Luke says and pats my shoulder.
"I have a question for you." I say.
"Hmm?" He grabs one of the bags from the grocery store and empties the contents.
"Are you jealous of him?" I ask and lean down, grabbing a small firework box. "And is this gonna be colorful?"
"A little..and yes." He chuckles.
"If this ones not colorful I will punch you." I tell him. "So you admit it, you like me." I say.
"A little. But not nearly as much as Calum." He whispers. "Just..don't tell him okay??"
"I won't." I reply. "And..sorry Luke..but you're friend zoned."
He chuckles again and shakes his head. "Yeah I kinda figured I would be."
I hear Calum groan and I squeeze my eyes shut.
"You okay?" Luke asks humorously.
"Shut up, Luke." I say lowly and cross my legs.
"Cal! You're girlfriend wants your d-"
"Luke!" I yell.
I hear Calum chuckling for a few seconds before it turns into another groan. "Damn it." I breathe.
Luke chuckles and grabs a lighter.
"Wait for Calum!" I say.
"I am!" Luke replies and sets the box in the middle of the backyard.
Calum walks outside with a slightly red face and shaky hands. "Hi." He breathes and Luke chuckles.
"Baby." I stand up and grab his hands. "Why are you shaking?" I ask even when I know.
He blushes and looks away. "No reason."
"Tell me." I whisper and peck his lips.
"I-I was touching myself." He whispers shyly.
"I know." I giggle and wrap his arms around my waist.
He scrunches up his nose and giggles too. "C'mon let's go watch some fireworks baby."
I smile and sit him in the chair. I sit on the floor next to him and hold his hand.
"Ready?" Luke asks quietly.
"Ready." Calum replies and I nod at Luke.
He lights the box and walks towards us quickly, kneeling down next to me.
The sparks fly out of the box in colorful arrays.
"Wow. Cal do you see them? Atleast a little?" I ask softly.
"Wow." I repeat and lean my head on Calums hand.
I move my eyes to Calum and he smiles out at the backyard.
I lean up and kiss his cheek.
He smiles wider and Luke gets up the light another box.
"This is amazing." I whisper and peck his cheek again.
"Just like you." Cal says.
I smile and stand up. "Can I sit in your lap?" I ask softly and pat his knee.
"Yes." He nods and holds his arms out.
I sit down and turn to the right a little so he can still see the lights.
He rests his chin on my head. I smiles and watch the next box go out.
"Can we make smores now Lucas?" Calum asks quietly.
"Yes. Let me get the wood and stuff." Luke gets up and opens the door.
I turn my face a little and peck Calum's jaw line. "Hi babe." I whisper.
"Hi babe." He repeats, making me smile.
"You're really cute. Your smile is adorable." I tell him.
"You're really cute too." He says.
"Thank you." I blush a little and peck his cheek once again.
He pulls me closer to him and kisses my head.
Luke walks back towards us and smiles at me a little. "Okay, let me get the fire started." He whispers.
I nod and watch as he leans down and lights the wood in the pit. "Luke..your buttcrack is showing." I say.
"Oh..sorry." Luke chuckles and pulls his pants up.
"I'm glad I'm blind so I don't have to see that." Calum says and covers my eyes.
I giggle and stick my tongue out and up, licking Calums hand.
"Oh my god. Was that your tongue?" He chuckles and removes his hands.
"Yes Cal, it was my tongue." I reply proudly.
"You have a big tongue." He whispers and smiles.
"Oh." I look at my tongue in my phone camera. Is it really that big? "Sorry." I sigh.
"No its not a bad thing. I was just saying." He says quietly and smiles.
"Okay." I nod a little and stand up. "I'm gonna get some water."
"Okay. Hurry back babe." Calum says and looks down at the growing fire.
"Mhm." I say and walk into the house. I sit at the table.
Luke looks at me for a few seconds with a confused look before looking away.
I open my camera again and examine my tongue. He's right. It's huge.
