Cole's SuspicionMature

Sebastian unlocked the door to his apartment witha sigh and shuffled inside. I looked around at the spotless apartment, looking for anything that's out of place or a speck of dirt that needed to be cleaned, but it was perfectly clean.
Satisfied Sebastian walked further inside and checked his messsages. He paused when Cole's voice came on.

"Bas where are you? Look I'm sorry about what I said this morning." He pasued and sighed into the phone. "I don't like seeing you like that Bas, you know that. And I just...snapped. I know that this isn't about me, but it's what I feel." Cole said thickly.
Sebastian had the image of him sitting in a lone booth at their favourite cafe with tears shining brightly in his eyes and his brow furrowed in concern.
The image pulled at Sebastian's heart strings, but he didn't pick up the phone.
"Sebastian please forgive me, look I'll be here for another hour if you don't show up, I-I understand and I'll walk away, Bas I promise, I'll walk away." Cole hung up.

Sebastian scrubbed his hands over his face and swore under his breath. He didn't want Cole to up and leave, he couldn't handle it. Cole's all Sebastian has, no friends, no family, no one but Cole.
Frowing Sebastian walked in to his room to get changed. He placed his jeans in the basket for his denims and shirt in the colours basket. He neatly combed his hair, brushed his teeth and slapped on a bit of cologne. He checked the mirror to see if he was presentable, nodding that he was; Sebastian collected his car keys, locked his door behind him and drove out to their favourite cafe.
The Sunshine Cafe is a small and intimate place where everybody knows one another and the food was excellent and the place is kept spotless, so it's a place where Sebastian is comfortable.

Only forty minuted had passed before Sebastian walked into Sunshine and spotted Cole slumped over the table in the far left corner booth. Sebastian walked over and took the seat opposite him.
"I'm sorry I'm late." He comented.
Cole's head lifted and sebastian saw the guilt and the sadness in his eyes. Sebastian winced and resisted the urge to lean over the table and embrace him.

He clenched his fists together on his knees and just waited for Cole to speak.
Cole just looked at Sebastian with an unreadable look on his face.
"Where were you?" He asked. Sebastian cleared his throat.

"I was having a pint with a... friend." He said avoiding looking at at Cole.
Cole frowned and leant back in his chair.
"What friend?" He asked bluntly.

"Someone I meet whilst I was doing my laundry." Sebastian said with his eyes averted.
"Why didn't you tell me?" He asked Sebastian in a hurt voice. Sebastian sighed and folded his arms across his chest.
"Because I only met him today." Sebastian whispered as he peeked at Cole's expression. Cole's eyes widened.

"You only met the guy today, yet you went and had a pint with him?" Cole sputtered.

"I saw no problem with it, plus he's the one that offered, so I accepted." Sebastian said quietly as his hands started to shake. 
"Saw no problem with it? Sebastian he could've been dangerous!" Cole almost shouted.
Sebastian scowled and looked around and saw that a good majority of the cafe were looking at them ib disapproval and curiosity.
Sebastian swallowed and felt his heartbeat speed up and as sweat started to line his brow and the bottom of his back.

"Cole please keep your voice down, you're drawning attention to us." Sebastian told him in a slightly panicked voice.
"And Thane isn't dangerous, he was a gentleman." He told him softly. 

"Thane? His name is Thane? That's a suspicious name, it could a killers name. Did he give you his last name?" Cole asked him seriously.

"No he didn't give me his last name. We had one pint of beer, I gave him my number, then we parted ways." Sebastian looked around again and saw that people were still watching them, he slumped in his seat more and felt his face heat.
Cole jumped from his seat.
"Are you crazy? You gave him your number? What the hell were you thinking? Or not even thinking at all!" Cole shouted at him.

Sebastian flinched and looked up at Cole.
"Cole please keep your voice down." He whispered to him.
Cole looked down at Sebastian and sighed.

Sebastian wanted to apologize, but he stayed where he was standing and watched as Cole looked down at his feet and avoided looking at Sebastian.
Nothing is wrong with Thane right? He thought to himself.
Feeling his phone vibrate in his pocket, he pulled it out and answered.
"Hello?" He said into the phone.
"Sebastian? Hi, it's uh, it's Thane." Sebastian's heart leapt in his chest.
Cole looked at him and shook his head, he turned on his heel and walked out the cafe.

The End
