This week, I bring Aeternum back to the table, showcasing a playful scene. In in, David and Jonathan are about to do some karaoke (of the Queen and Bowie kind)… in front of the friends and family of Jonathan’s Juilliard school friends.
PS… I broke the rules by two-ish sentences.
“Wow, that’s a bold choice, but I do have the track… if you’re sure.” The emcee blinked at Jonathan, watching him steal David’s fedora before pressing a kiss to his white-blonde hair.
“I’m sure,” Jonathan confirmed. “I would do nothing to shame this beautiful man.”
David faced his boyfriend, protesting, “But… what about me? I don’t want to shame you, either.”
“You won’t. Do it like we always do at home.” Jonathan smiled at him, pushing David’s hair over his ear. “And look at me when you’re singing. Don’t look at the crowd.”
“I’m just… Mercury in front of everyone? I just don’t want to emb—” David bit his lower lip.
Jonathan smiled at him, shaking his head and placing one finger to David’s lips. “You could never.”
