Title: Last Caress
Fandom: History Boys
Note: For koshweasley.
The cricket pitch was deserted this windy Saturday afternoon, except for themselves, met seemingly by chance the day before they went up to their respective colleges.
Scripps's hands were jammed into his pockets as he kicked at a tussock, the fabric of his trousers pulled tight. Akhtar knew the signal.
"Behind the shed," he suggested.
Afterward he lent Scripps the handkerchief that his mother always tucked into his pocket. He would wash it out himself, or perhaps keep it for a while, something to remind him.
"I'll write," said Scripps.
"Yeah," said Akhtar, and touched Scripps's face, a last caress.
