TomTordTord has been spending a whole week making the perfect letter to give Tom, but he's still not sure if he can give him the letter and get his result. "Okay, Tord. You can do this." Tord's heart starts pounding as he walks toward Tom on the couch. "T-Tom, I uh, have something for you..." Tom glances up from his video game, nonchalant. His 'eyes' harden when he sees the communist and he sounds exasperated though.. "What is it, Tord?" He asks, holding out his hand and waiting, and the commie's heart fluttered. "I, um, w-wanted to give you s-s-something." Tord stutters, starting to back out of the room, blushing. "B-but y-you s-s-seem b-busy so m-m-maybe I'll drop b-by a-another t-t-time.." Tom's 'eyes' soften, seeing how nervous Tord is. "No, I'm not busy." He says softly. "C'mon, what was it that you wanted to show me? Tord was really starting to get nervous. "N-NEVERMIND!" Tord screamed with a red face and slight tears in his eyes. Tord ran upstairs and tried not to cry from the anxiety he's covered up for many years, ever since he moved from Norway in fact. Tom felt straight up guilty for letting Tord run off. 'I'm such an idiot. Why was I being a jerk to him just now?' Tord ran into his room and quickly shut the door, and started experiencing something he thought he'd never would experience again. Tord was having a panic attack.
Tord was trying to call out for someone. ANYONE to come and help him. "tom... Tom..... TOM....... TOM!!" Tord screamed each call for Tom louder than the other. After the 4th shout his breathing got worse and started to actually HURT him. Tom went back to his video game until he heard Tord. "TOM!!" Tom quickly paused his game and rushed to Tord's room. When he opened the door, he saw Tord red-faced, legs layed under himself, and trying to catch his breath. "Tord!!" Tom quickly went to Tord's side and tried calming him down. "Tord, it's okay, i'm here, calm down, calm down, the sooner you do, the sooner it will stop..." Tord honestly couldn't hear much of what Tom was trying to tell him. "Tord.........calm down........It will stop..." That was all he could hear. Tord's throat had gotten so dry from the hard breathing, he was starting to cough. "Cough! Cough!- TOm...T- Cough" Tom was starting to freak out. He ran downstairs to get Tord a glass of water. Tord just stared at the door as Tom rushed out. His thoughts were storming with panic. 'D-did he... Abandon me...?' Tord kept coughing as tears started forming in his eyes.
Tom ran back up with the water and Tord looked like he was going to die because how his chest was rising and falling at a fast pace. He looked like prey about to be taken by a predator. Tord looked up at Tom with a tear-streaked face happy knowing Tom didn't leave him. Tom ran back to Tord's side and handed him the water. Tord gulped down so much at one time. "Woah woah, don't drink too fast, drink it a bit slower." Tord took Tom's advice after trying to catch his breath once again. "There you go..." Tom was starting to feel relieved that Tord was starting to calm down. When Tord finished with the water he took a few slow breaths and looked at Tom."T-thanks." "You're welcome.... Hey, Tord?" "Y-yeah?" "What was it you wanted to give me?" "Tord looked like he was going to cry again. "I-it's n-nothing." "It can't be nothing, Tord. If you're getting emotional, than something's gotta be wrong. Please, just tell me." The Commie's heart fluttered once again knowing that Tom ACTUALLY wanted to know he was okay. He pulled the letter from out of his hoodie pocket, and he stared at his favorite gun sticker he placed on the envelope flap. He gave a sigh and nervously handed it to Tom. "H-here... Just take it.... But... P-please d-don't read it here...." Tom looked at the sticker that was placed on the envelope. He figured it must of been special to Tord. Tom opened it right in front of Tord anyway. He didn't give a smug face or anything. Just a concerned expression. Either way, Tord's heart still sank in fear and anxiety.
I've been wanting to tell you something for a while now... But i'm sure you'll never feel the same way. But I've kinda been getting dreams about us hanging out... Like... On dates.. And every time i'm around you, my heart feels... Like you're not the only thing I could live for... And I guess those were signs of a crush... Maybe something a little more than that maybe... I'm sorry for treating you so bad in the past, but I hope things will be better in the future, maybe not as a couple, but... Maybe..... 𝘍𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘴.
After Tom read the note, he noticed that Tord was crying, and he felt, like maybe, he liked him too. Tord started to get up from where he was sitting, Tom quickly popped his head up. "I-I-i'm s-sorry, Thom-mas, I don't know w-why I ever t-thought you w-would like m-me...Hic T-THIS WAS J-JUST A STUPID C-COMMIE MISTAKE! Just like me!" Tom's heart sank when he heard Tord say those words, Tord turned to the door and Tom quickly shot up from where he was sitting and grabbed Tord's hand. "Tord... You're not a mistake." Tord turned around with a still tear-streaked and flushed face. Tom pulled Tord into a hug and caught his attention. "I love you, Tord." Tord's eyes widened and then softened and he hugged Tom back as he began to sob 'thank you' 's to Tom. "Shh. it's okay, Tord. You're okay.... You're okay." Tord pulled out of the hug and pulled Tom into a kiss. Tom was surprised at first, but then he melted into it. Tom never felt like this, it felt nice, he loved the way his heart was beating now that he was with Tord. They ended the kiss, both calmly panting and catching their breath. "S-so, does this mean we're-" "Yes, Tord. We're boyfriends now." Tord was so happy. he pulled Tom into another hug and laughed. "Jeg Elsker Deg, Tom!" "What?" Tord chuckled at Tom's confusion. "It means 'I love you', Tom." Tom gave a warm smile. "Well then, Jeg Elsker Deg too, Tord."
