Challenge #172: Shopping Title: It Wasn't a Honeymoon Condom: 2 to Prom Kiss
Brian and Justin spend their rehearsal dinner answering questions, offering reassurances, and avoiding lectures. When Justin can’t take it anymore, he catches Brian’s eye, and they escape to Babylon.
They share a few drinks and a tab of E, dancing until the gay grapevine kicks in, and they notice all the speculative and sympathetic looks aimed at them.
Their bedroom is filled with golden gardenias. If Justin wasn’t tipsy and high, he thinks he’d burst into tears. Instead he stands speechless until Brian clears his throat.
“Emmett couldn’t bear to waste them after all the time he spent finding them.” Justin almost laughs because there are plants everywhere and gorgeous yellow and orange blossoms covering their bed. Then he sees a look on Brian’s face he only half remembers, and he’s speechless again.
He sucks Brian off with the scent of gardenias surrounding them. When Brian fucks him, he feels the smooth petals against his face, their fragrance so strong he can taste it. They fall asleep with gardenias crushed between them and under them and spend the next morning laughing while picking them off each other and ordering new sheets.
Justin holds this memory closest while in New York.
