Another Highway

Post  Shane Anderson on Sun Mar 06, 2011 9:41 pm

Continued from here
"Just stay under the speed limit, so we won't get pulled over. But please go over 30 this time?" Shane begged. "I don't want to get in trouble my first day! And for being on a date? My dad would NOT like that." He turned the possibilities over in his mind...Blaine would be furious...Shane and Reed would be called to see the Dean...his dad would be notified, if that was how things worked anyway... "Floor it!" he exclaimed suddenly. "Please. Blaine would KILL me if I screwed up on the first day!"

Reed's eyes widened at the desperation in Shane's voice. He knew from what Shane had told him, how bad his dad could be, and he did not want to cause a problem between them. So he did as any self respecting boyfriend would do in this situation; put his foot down hard on the gas, and floored it. He gasped momentarily at the sudden speed and then laughed. He couldn't believe what he was doing.

Shane laughed at seing Reed's face as the car gave a lurch and darted forward. The blonde boy looked completely and utterly terrified, and then gave a laugh of what seemed like hysteria. Shane, on the other hand, loved going fast. He loved driving as fast as possible - at least, he would if he was ever in a car alone. He was always with someone who had a license - though he'd never really had much of a chance. It wasn't like his dad was ultimately supportive of all his endeavors, so Shane was lucky if his dad would take him out driving once every month. Shane fully expected to get his license very, very late.
Shane realized the danger of driving so quickly in the dark, but the road was quite empty because the highway was brand new and Shane trusted Reed with at least 50% of his heart. Maybe 55%.
"You're doing great!" he exclaimed, exhilarated by the feeling of going way over the speed limit down the highway with his boyfriend.

Reed gave Shane a nervous smile, taking his eyes off of the road for a second, and then gasped as the handle slipped out of his hands, and they swerved on the road momentarily. He gave a squeel as he quickly and clumsily regained control of the car.

"That was a close one." He sighed in relief and then tightened his hold on the wheel so hard that his knuckles were showing. Reed couldn't believe how fast he was going.

His mother would have a heart attack.
Reed never took his eyes from the road for fear of crashing for real this time. The roads were dark, and with his record he couldn't take any chances. He couldn't get distracted by Shane again, as hard as that was.

Shane grabbed at the seat as the car swerved, and looked wildly around. Fortunately, there weren't many other cars to run into them, so they were fine. But they could just as easily have run off the road and, had they been alright, have missed curfew. If they hadn't been alright...
Well, Shane didn't want to think about it.
"Just keep your eyes. On the road," Shane said through gritted teeth, because clenching his teeth was a nervous habit that he couldn't seem to shake. He then leaned back in his seat and thought about how terrible it would be if anything bad ever happened to Reed.

"Oh, don't worry, I am" Reed replied shakily as he stared determiningly ahead. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you about the curfew...It just completely slipped me mind" he sighed. He couldn't help feeling a bit guilty at the possibly of getting Shane in trouble on his first day.

"Don't apologize, hobbit," Shane said, clenching and unclenching his teeth. "I should've read the handbook, but the stupid thing is like 63 pages! Who has time to even write something like that, let alone read it?" He sighed. "Is there anything else that would be good to know? Like you're not allowed to steal food from the cafeteria?" He forced a laugh, wondering why he was so nervous. He wasn't usually this worried about anything, he just kind of let life happen and didn't bother worrying about it. But where Reed was concerned he might make an exception...

"There's not really anything specific to Dalton that is different in any other school" Reed shrugged. "Just don't make a spectacle of yourself and you should be fine" he laughed smugly. Dalton wasn't exactly a big fan of individualtiy. The Warblers were no exception. This was probably why Kurt had such a hard time fitting in at first.

Shane bit his lip, choosing this nervous habit over the teeth grinding one because he'd had to wear (one of those things that they make you wear at night when you grind your teeth too much - what the heck are they called??) from the time he was 12 to just a few months ago. "So..." He pretended to be deep in thought, pushing any and all images of a bloody, mangled Reed from his mind. "No streaking?"

(it's a night guard. Or a retainer, I have to wear my retainer for that. Otherwise I wouldn't have to wear it at all)

Unfashionable Though

Reed's face turned a deep crimson at the thought of Shane streaking around the school. He couldn't form words right now. "Um-no" he replied and then laughed, "I'm pretty sure Dalton frowns upon public nudity" he added boldly, adding to the color in his cheeks as he giggled.

(Alright, I wasn't sure, I thought it might be a retainer but...eh...)

"Hmm...And are there any other good schools around here whose ideas on that subject might be a little more...loose? Because I could just go there instead and streak around all I wanted." Shane laughed at the expression on Reed's face, which was the most amusing mix between desire and embarrassment.

Reed bit his lip as he blushed trying to keep his thoughts on the road and away from Shane streaking. He tried to come up with an appropriate response, but only ended up mumbling incoherantly.
Finally he whined, "Stop distracting me!"
He would surely crash if Shane kept this up.

[check your facebook mail - I finished the Picture of Dorian Gray and my reactions are incoherent]
Shane put his hands in his lap and stared straight at the road like a good boy. He occasionally glanced at Reed, but the temptation to say something sexual was too much. Sometimes there were moments where sexual jokes were not appropriate. This had all the markings of one of those moments.
He instead found a way to grind his teeth through his lip, which was quite painful, but wasn't that the point? At least he thought it was - to create pain greater than the worry, so that the worry vanishes and all you're left with is a gnawed lip and a retainer.
"Sorry," he said after a moment of silence, which was unbearable. He also said this because his lower lip needed a break and it didn't quite work the same with the upper lip.

Reed smiled over at Shane and then frowned at his expression. "Are you alright?" he asked. He appeared to be biting his lip...had he said something wrong?

(Okay, I will, and UGHH MY TV ISN'T WORKING! I'm watching fox on a livestream now...grrr)

(Why are you --- actually, we'll talk about this on Facebook.
ONCE I GET OVER THE FACT THAT DORIAN ---------)

"Hmmm?" Shane looked over at Reed, who had allowed his eyes to wander from the road. "Don't you dare look at me," he warned Reed with menace - loving menace - in his voice. "And yeah, I'm fine, just a nervous habit. Biting my lip. Grinding my teeth. Thank goodness I don't bite my nails, or else then I'd really be a wreck."

"Oh."
Reed felt a pang of guilt. It was his fault that Shane was so nervous now. His awful driving skills had the other boy on edge.
"Well you should really stop that!" He gasped taking a glance at Shane's lip briefly before returning his eyes to the road, "You're bleeding!"

Shane's tongue flicked out of its own accord and tasted blood. He licked it dry and immediately started biting again. "Sorry. Habit. Can't help it. It's just...I don't want you to...I don't want anything bad to happen to you." He gave Reed puppy dog eyes. "It would make me sad." He stuck out his lower lip, which was cracked and bloody and therefore probably wouldn't give the right effect. But at least it would have an effect.

Reed's eyes softened as a slight blush tinted his cheeks. It took everything inside of him not to fling his arms around the boy in the passenger seat.
"I'm not going anywhere Shane. I suffer injuries on a daily basis. I'm used to it. You don't need to worry so much."

Shane smiled and removed his teeth from his lip, if only to appease Reed for the time being. "And maybe that's why I'm so worried," he murmured, more to himself than to Reed.
Because, truly, the day was coming when he fell was pushed [Lauren, are you reading this?? See how perfectly I'm setting this up for you??] down the stairs and...
"Can I turn on the radio?" Shane asked, already reaching for the dial. "Are there any good channels here? How about some good rock? Or do you like something else? We could always go with like...country. Or something." He snorted, because he couldn't picture Reed ever listening to country music.

Reed made a mock expression of horror at the country comment and then responded, "Anything's fine, just nothing too distracting." he laughed and added, "We wouldn't want me crashing us into a ditch." He couldn't help but smile at Shane's worry for him. He had never seen anyone as concerned for his safety as Shane, and as annoying as it was sometimes, he couldn't help but be greatful.

"Hmmm..." Shane reached forward and turned on the radio. "A Little Help From My Friends" blared through the speakers at a volume Shane was surprised Reed would ever listen to the radio at. He grinned wide and, turning the volume down just slightly, said, "I love the Beatles," and started to sing very loudly.

"I know." he smiled at the memory of the two of them singing "If I Fell" at the beginning of the night. The sound of Shane's voice was slightly distracting, but it soothed him at the same time. As much as Shane hated his own voice, Reed thought it was nice.

What do you think about love at first sight?

Reed smiled softly at the lyrics. He certainly could never see himself with Shane after the first time he saw him. He remembered Shane asking "Who's that?" and all Reed could think was why his he staring at me like that?. He never would have imagined he'd be speeding down a highway with the same boy, listening to Beatles music.

What do you think about love at first sight? Shane sang, glancing over at Reed. He thought love at first sight existed, definitely. There was no doubt in his mind that Reed was someone important the minute he saw him. He remembered asking Blaine who he was, and then when Reed tripped and fell, asking nervously what was wrong with him. But the moment he saw Reed...he just knew. He didn't know they would fall in love, heck, he wasn't sure what love even really was. He just knew that Reed was more than just some kid who fell down a lot. What had Shane's teacher said about Romeo and Juliet...'star-crossed lovers,' and star-crossed means fated to be?
Then Shane shook his head and kept singing, because he didn't want to think about the similarities between himself and Romeo...He would never kill himself for love, although, honestly, if Reed drove off the road and died Shane might have to re-think that...

"Shane?" Reed asked meekly. He took a deep breath and asked, "Do you remember when we first met?" He flushed wondering for a second if he was overthinking the situation. He had always wondered what exactly was going on under that curly head of Shane's on that day last year.
