I was underwhelmed by X2, but illiterate threatens to suck me into its ficverse with things like this:
“I thought it was just a game, just something we did because you couldn’t touch your girlfriend,” John said and it came out sounding hurt and bitter, which is what it was, but he hadn’t meant to sound so weak.
“I don’t know, but I know that I missed you. I missed lying with you at night and listening to you snore and—” Bobby broke off and kissed his neck again, used a free hand to start undoing John’s pants.
John pushed his hand away.
“Bobby,” he said, sitting up on his elbows and throwing the other boy off balance. “Don’t you think this is a little unfair?”
“Why would you say that?”
“Because you plus me plus your hand in my pants doesn’t exactly equal Bobby loves Rogue forever.”
“You’re being ridiculous, this doesn’t…”
“Mean anything.” John scowled at him. “Let yourself out, okay?”
