Just sneaking this one in…

Today…a little late for Halloween but…

The bizarreness of the circumstances didn’t really hit Aaron until they were almost at the diner. Here he was, on the way to drink coffee with some guy he’d accosted in the street. The fact that it was Halloween didn’t help matters much. They walked together in silence, respectable distance apart, listening to the tinny jingle of mechanical skeleton laughter and occasional pumping bass from the parade of houses and stores they passed. It was late enough that the younger trick or treaters were safely tucked up in bed and only the older contingent, fueled by alcohol rather than candy, roamed the streets.
When they were almost run down by a bewildering crowd comprised of sexy nurses, unimaginative toga wearers, surprisingly convincing zombies, and what appeared to be the Easter Bunny, Aaron chanced a look over at his companion. And found himself looking straight into those gray eyes again. He could feel the flush of heat in his own cheeks as clearly as he caught the blush on the stranger next to him before they swiftly looked back down at their feet.

    Love all the details. And I love them looking/not looking at each other.

    It can be freeing, if reality is suspended for a while. :)
