Sebastian-Benjamin hated doing yard work like every other teenager ever, but the fact that he was forced to clean the year, de-weed the garden, clean out the pool, and fix that darn hole in the fence, he hated it more then any other teenager would. He sighed softly as he finally finished de-weeding the garden, he drew his arm over his forehead and let out a deep breath, "I hate you both so much," Sebastian muttered towards his parents where they were getting ready to leave the house for their little get away that they were having.
Normally you would see Sebastian lying around on the garden with a good book or playing with the family dog, he loved nature so much that he was a huge advocate for the current nature issues that were going on in town. However, when he was forced to do such degrading work, then he hated it, he hated everything about it. That left an unsettling feeling in his stomach, he stood up and began cleaning up the tools that he used for the garden after rinsing them off with the hose. Now it was time to clean the pool, which was a little less degrading but still pretty degrading.
Sebastian was cleaning the pool with one of his earbuds in when suddenly he heard a voice that almost caused him to fall forward into the pool because it scared him. Once he found his footing and stepped back from the polls he spun around and glared at the boy on the other side of the fence, "You ass! I could have fallen into the pool! How about grabbing my attention before you start talking?" Sebastian asked. His father came around the corner of the house to check on his son when he heard him screaming, he noticed the neighbour boy and rolled his eyes, "Watch your footing then, and stop blaming other people," his father snapped, he walked away and unbeknownst was being mocked by his son. "Fucker," Sebastian muttered while secretly flipping his father the bird behind his back.
"He's a pompous ass who could give less then two shits about me, let alone a shit, and he basically just likes to throw religious crap at me and constantly remind me that being gay was a sin, wearing make-up like a girl was a sin, wearing girly clothing was a sin, honestly I would just love to push the ass into the pool," Sebastian answered, he leaned on the pool stick a little bit. "I'm Sebastian-Benjamin," Sebastian said introducing himself, noting that even though they've lived next to each to other for over ten years, he didn't even know this guy's name,
"Don't even get me started with emos and goths," Sebastian muttered as he went back to cleaning the pool, their wasn't much in the pool considering that he was always so sure that he got nothing into it. He sighed softly, "Since you know my dad so much, then you already know why he believes that make-up is only for girls, as for your father, who is also my pastor by the way...he's not as pompous as my father is," Sebastian spoke. "Also, feel free to call me anything you wish, my friends have given me thousands of nicknames, their favourite one seems to be Benji," Sebastian added.
He chuckled softly and finished cleaning the pool, "No one really calls me Sebby anymore," Sebastian answered as he went ahead and stashed away the pool cleaning stick. He grabbed more tools that he would need to fix the fence, he walked over to it and started examining the holes and stuff; "I would rather wake up to hearing Scriptures and Bible verses then my dad screaming Leviticus 18 & 20 in my ear every damn morning," Sebastian said. He didn't dare look up Gabriel.
"My parents want me to fix the fence since it's not going to fix itself," Sebastian answered as he began working on covering the holes and stuff with what he had to work with. He sighed in relief when he heard his parents car drive off, "I love gardening, I just don't love doing it when my parents tell me to do it," Sebastian added.
Sebastian stood and unlocked the gate for Gabriel when the boy got off the fence and walked over to the gate that connected the two yards, he let the boy in and then headed back over to the part of the fence he was fixing. "I generally like walking through the park, listening to music, eating chocolate, volunteering at the local animal shelter, playing with my pup, Valentine, and just doing whatever I can in nature," Sebastian answered in response to the boys question.
Sebastian sighed, "I hate going to parties, too much people," he replied as he continued to work on the fence. He's worked on the fence before which was why he knew exactly what he was doing. "I like listening to Pop music, like Halsey, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, things like that and I think they're going to be gone for a week, why?" Sebastian answered.
Sebastian snorted, "They once left me alone at the house for a month just so they could go on their honeymoon," Sebastian answered before sitting up from where he was leaning forward. "I prefer the quiet then the loud noise or whatever," He added, he sighs softly and dropped the tool he was using, his hand had cramped up. "Fucking hell!" He hissed, he grabbed his wrist and held it still.
He hated when he got cramps during yard work, especially when he worked on his garden, oh his beloved most prized garden, he was surprised when his mother had simply said...'Here's your 14th birthday present' and then she had presented him with a very ugly looking garden. He spent the next two years working on it to get it to the beautiful state it is now, it currently holds an orange tree and an apple tree, tulips, roses, and some orchids. He held out his hand towards Gabriel, "Normally my brother would be here to supervise me, but alas, my parents kicked him out and so now he lives with his boyfriend in California," Sebastian mumbled.
Sebastian only smiles softly in response, "Pekple who live in this town generally have the smallest of minds; and my brother said that California is fantastic, people are more accepting there then they are anywhere else, so he told me that if I ever decide to come out, that I am more then welcome to fly out to California and move in with him," Sebastian murmured softly. He sighed softly when his hand began to relax.
He chuckled darkly and flexed his hands, he crouched back down to finish the fence, "If I came out to my parents, I wouldn't even have a chance to apologise before my father punches me in the face and kills me," Sebastian mutters darkly. "But he did say that if it ever gets so bad that I can't handle staying in this rotten place, that I can just call him up and his boyfriend will come and get me, his boyfriend is a cop, and so if my father or mother try to hit me, he could easily have them arrested right away," Sebastian said with a small shrug. "I might call him next week, and if I do, then I'll never have to see this place ever again....which also means that I'll never see your beautiful face or any of my friends ever again," Sebastian said.
Sebastian hadn't meant to be so straightforward with this guy, but he just didn't care in this moment, he would probably be leaving next week and so he might as well be as nice as he could with him. "My friends never bore me, I love them even if they are crazy assholes who do stupid shit and get in trouble 24/7," Sebastian said with a laugh, "and no, I'm not staying for them, I'm staying because I'm afraid of what will happen once I leave," Sebastian added quietly. He finished the fence and placed the tools off to the side, "Please refrain from leaning on the fence on your side, this needs a couple days to dry completely," Sebastian said, he carefully climbed upon a step ladder that he had and looked over the fence to make sure that nothing got close to Gabriel's garden.
Sebastian sighed and looked at Gabriel, Valentine had come over and was now sniffing the boy's shoes and legs, "Pride is next week which is one other reason why I might call, it means that I can finally be with the people I'm supposed to be with....my fellow Homosexuals," Sebastian said. He had paused after 'with' to give dramatic effect and then he waved his hands around in a crazy motion when he said 'my fellow homosexuals'.
Valentine was still and her tail was wagging as Gabriel petted her, she wanted to be petted by Sebastian too but could sense the boy wasn't up for that at the moment and decided to stay in front of Gabriel. Sebastian chuckled and began putting the tools in the shed, "That's true, I'll be with my brother, my future brother-in-law and a whole lot of people who will accept me for who I am," Sebastian said with a grin. He closes the shed door, "Would you like to come inside for something to eat or drink?" He asked.
Sebastian led Gabriel inside, Valentine followed the boys inside, he petted her between the ears and then walked completely into the home, after Valentine made her way in first. He led Gabriel to the kitchen where stuff for pb&j sandwhiches had been left, "Would you believe me if I told you my Mom was more acceptable of gays then my dad was?" Sebastian asked.
Sebastian headed over to the kitchen sink and washed off his hands, after that he went over to the cupboard and grabbed two plates, he began working on making two sandwiches, one for him and one for Gabriel. "Nah, she secretly has two moms who she loves to death and she's been a supporter ever since but has kept it hidden from my Dad because she loves him so much, she constantly sends my brother money so that he and his boyfriend can pay their bills and such," Sebastian answered, Valentine rested at his feet.
