Eddie’s own grin soon followed, his nose nudging into the other’s as he laughed quietly “Merry Christmas” he teased, the arm around his neck making him so much happier and confident that Michael felt the same as him. With a swift movement, Eddie gently pushed the other man over to lie down on the couch, Eddie on top as he made sure the man’s head fell onto a cushion. There was nothing sexual about this, he was merely being playful as he kissed him lightly again, not being able to believe that Michael actually liked him enough to kiss back.
Michael couldn’t help but laugh with Eddie; his laugh was infectious. A great big grin was set on his face at the cheesy line. He squeaked with surprise as he found himself lying down on the couch with Eddie on top. He squirmed with delight and chuckled when his other arm joined the other around his neck. He was glad that they finally figured it out. Michael knew that he felt something for the other, he just didn’t know what. He pulled away, just inches from his lips. “Merry Christmas to you, Eddie.”
Furrowing his eyebrows, Eddie looked away, feeling thoroughly embarrassed until Michael spoke again. He admired that the kid was still smiling at him before he felt those soft lips press against his once more, this time he let himself enjoy the contact, his hand knotting into the other man’s shirt as he tilted his head slightly.
Michael grinned against Eddie’s lips when he felt his jumper twist. He let an arm wrap around Eddie’s neck and his hand played with the hair on the back of Eddie’s neck and he leaned forward a little more. Michael couldn’t deny the face that he was enjoying this greatly, he was enjoying the soft touch of the other’s lips.
“Mhmm…” Eddie murmured as he gave in, leaning only a few more inches closer before his lips met Michael’s. It was a chaste and quick kiss, his mind getting blurred at whether this was right or wrong as he swiftly pulled away, a slight expression of shock on his face “Shit…I’m really really sorry..”
Michael’s eyes widened when he felt his lips connect with Eddie’s and he was more surprised at the gesture than anything else. When Eddie pulled away he instantly missed the touch. He didn’t know whether it felt right but there was something about it. “Don’t be sorry..” He whispered, smiling up at Eddie before letting his emotions take control and leaning in, pressing a kiss to Eddie’s lips.
“Nuh-uh” Eddie protested jokingly, his hand nudging Michael in the stomach, his fingers lingering over the sweater material before he pulled away, his body leaning in so close to the other male. He looked down at Michael’s lips and gulped before looking into his eyes, chewing his lip nervously “You’re really tempting…” he breathed as he fought the urge to lean in further.
“Uh huh.” He replied, a wide smirk spreading across his face. Michael could feel Eddie’s stare on him and he swiped his tongue across his lips. He quirked a brow at Eddie’s words and he felt himself moving closer, his leg touching Eddie’s. “Really?” He asked, his smirk disappearing and he looked up at Eddie expectantly.
“Who’s your mom? I have yet to meet her yet.” She smiled at his reaction. “You’re very welcome. I knew you would love it. Had to get that custom made. Plus there are games and the accessories in there too.”
“Oh her name’s Charlotte, she’s Dad’s girlfriend.” He smiled widely at her. “Thank you, really. You didn’t have to get me something. A candy cane would be fine.”
“Oh, that’s good. You’re organised and I’m not” Eddie laughed, gazing back at him before shrugging “M’not that interesting you know…You’re gonna get rather bored” his voice trailed into a whisper as he scooted a little closer, he wasn’t really sure why he felt the need to be closer to Michael, he just knew he needed to be, he kinda craved it.
He chuckled at Eddie’s comment, watching the other move a little closer to him. He felt a little warmth add to his cheeks and he bowed his head, looking at his knees. “Of course you’re interesting..” He said, glancing up and smiling at the other before moving a little closer to Eddie, the space between them becoming smaller.
“Yeah.. I couldn’t see that either.. But somewhere in your dad’s heart he’s a big teddy bear.” She chuckled then pulled out a big box wrapped in Christmas paper. “Here. This is for you.”
“Oh he is.. Just around me and mom..” He trailed off, smiling widely. “Thank you..” He pulled the paper off and opened the box, his eyes widening in surprise. “Thank you so much, Dani. Really, thank you!”
“Blonsky? Hmm. Interesting. Well tell your father it’s a nice idea to give them out. Very sweet of him. And how are you doing Michael? Did you get any presents yet? I have one for you and your father.”
“Nah it was my idea to hand them out, he stole one this morning as a taste tester apparently. Can you imagine him giving out cupcakes?” He laughed. “I got one, from Dad. A bull dog puppy that I’ve named Chunk. Oh you shouldn’t have..”
Eddie slowly sat down on the edge of the couch, looking up at Michael “I’d love to…” he said, a smile creeping back onto his face “I wouldn’t wanna get in your way though, I mean..I’ll only stay for a bit if you’re busy” he nodded, his hands fidgeting in his lap.
Michael sat down on the couch next to Eddie and smiled at him. “Oh stop it.” He said waving a hand at him. “It’s totally fine, I’m done with all the wrapping and stuff already. I was prepared days ago.” He twirled his thumbs in his lap. “You have my undivided attention.”
Noticing the blush, Eddie smiled bright, his hand instinctively moving up to trail a index finger over the man’s cheek before he realised what he was doing, quickly snapping it away “Um..N-no I’m ok thanks..I’m really full. I bet they taste great though. I didn’t know you could cook” he rambled, feeling the heat run to his face as he quickly looked down before walking off to the couch.
Michael felt his cheeks grow warmer and he knew his whole face was matching the color of his jumper now. He smiled up at Eddie and shrugged his shoulders. “Dad said they were..” He trailed off, glancing down at the floor. “You can stay a little while if you want.. That’s if you want to.”
