SHAWN was already packed and ready when the bell rang. Then he was out the door and heading for the staircase without looking back. It wasn't as if he didn't like Mr. Arrick or his class. There was something about classic literature that actually appealed to him. And learning it from a Scottish guy seemed to make it more real. But the school day was long and he had to be home before five o'clock, which gave him very little time to spend with Marcus.
Shawn thundered down the stairs before most of the other classrooms had spilled their occupants out into the hallways. That was the way he thought about it, the time of passing between classes. After eating so many students, the classrooms finally got sick and puked up the contents of their stomachs. Which meant that everyone in the school, Shawn included, was just some disgusting vomitous chunk.
He needed to spend less time coming up with metaphors and more time thinking about Marcus.
At twenty three, Marcus was five years older than Shawn. That didn't really bother Shawn. He could do as he pleased. He wasn't sure how it would sit with his parents, though. Of course, the fact that he was dating a man would probably overshadow the age difference in their eyes. His mom would be okay with it, he knew. She was pretty open minded, having been taught the lessons of hatred as a child. But his dad would blow a gasket. My son?! A queer?!
