Aiden lay back on his bed, his battered acoustic guitar on his chest. There weren't many people on his floor at the moment, and he was taking advantage of that fact completely. He sang loudly (and not quite on key), strumming his guitar wildly. He rarely got to play just for fun and not worry about quality (and today's musical adventures were decidedly lacking in that), but this was Aiden's version of letting loose.
"You're just a boy! She's just a girl!" he yelled, keeping in time with the Forever the Sickest Kids song. "Don't break her heart! She'll wreck your world!" He wasn't bitter. Truly. But it was a good song. Besides, he and his last ex hadn't really been that close to begin with. There hadn't been much heartbreak in that breakup.
He'd had one of those. But it had been a long time ago.
Maybe that was one of the good things about not dating around that much. He'd had two relationships, and neither had worked out. Aiden wasn't hopeless about his future prospects, but... sometimes his track record left a bad taste in his mouth. Everyone said dating in high school was a bad idea, and while he didn't quite agree with that, he could see where they were coming from. Aiden and his ex had ended up going to schools on opposite ends of the country. Well, Colorado was closer to the East Coast than California was, but the point still stood.
Oh well. No reason to worry about that shit right now. He had his trusty guitars and a fantastic roommate that was almost impossible not to be too attracted to. He hadn't told Felix, though. Didn't want to make it awkward. He was pretty sure Felix knew about his sexuality (hell, he knew Felix had slept with more guys than he might want to know), but he didn't need to throw it in his face that he occasionally couldn't help checking him out.
No harm in that. Aiden had no desire for a relationship with his roommate. He liked their friendship too much, and he didn't want the drama. Besides, sober, Felix would never go with it, and Aiden didn't do meaningless sex. So the point was basically moot.
They had enough in common, though, to make their friendship one of the best ones Aiden had ever had. Similar taste in music made for a great fallback, and sometimes talking girls with Felix was fun.
He strummed the last bar and threw in a quick vocal run, this time in complete control of his voice.
