Phan - The runaway - Part: 25 Phil POV
His head hurt, and it took him some time to remember where he was, at the hospital, he was run over by a car... again.
He didn’t open his eyes, he just wanted to lay there and think. He registered the sounds around him, the machines attached to him, beeping in different ways, and summing, but there was one other sound that wasn’t supposed to be there, a quiet sobbing next to him. He then realized that something or someone was squeezing his right hand, those hands were warm, and familiar.
Phil opened his eyes and turned his head to the right, to face a Dan crying into his pillow while squeezing his hand, he was alive, and he wasn’t hurt or injured, his Dan was fine.
“Why are you crying Daniel? You’re supposed to smile, dispose your dimples and glowing eyes” Phil said and gave a vague smile at the boy who’d now lifted his head and stared Phil in the eyes, he looked shocked, but happy at the same time.

There was someone at the door, Dan sighted and got up, he’d been playing Skyrim, so he wasn’t happy about having to leave his game.
He opened the door “What can I dooooo....” he wasn’t able to finish his sentence, he was just standing in chock, without being able to say anything, or do anything, it had to be a dream right?
It couldn’t be real, but it was, his heart pounded fast, as the boy in front of him sent him a tired smile, a smile causing Dan to cry.
Without thinking he wrapped his arms around the other boy, and crashed his own lips against the other’s lips, the kiss was returned, and Dan entangled his fingers in the other boy’s hair deepening the kiss, pressing their bodies against each other, never wanting to let go again, never.
When they had to catch their breaths, their lips broke apart, they were both laughing, with red cheeks, and tears of happiness pouring from their eyes.

It was around noon when he boarded the train, he was on his way.

But his brother wasn’t like that, he accepted him as he were, girly or not girly, gay or not gay, he was the reason Phil was still alive, or else he would probably have committed suicide at a young age.

He couldn't wait for school to end, so he could visit his new and different friend. He was still confused about his urge to see Phil, and his thoughts around the other boy were strange.
