My jaw almost hit the floor as I stared at Win in shock, from the back of the art room.

The class broke out into chatter, as their phones where whipped out to spread the news that Win and I were dating. Wins face pretty much mirrored mine. I was guessing that his "announcement" was unintended word vomit, because he had panicked.

Fuck.... I guess he did warn me that he always panicked and screwed up doing speeches....

Didn't expect THAT to come out though...

I knew that there probably wasn't a single person in the school that didn't know now.

I had never been more grateful that our parents had literally no involvement with the school other than paying the fees.

The teacher tried to calm the ruckus that was growing louder and louder, as there were still presentations to be done. No one paid the poor guy any attention whatsoever, so he gave up and retreated to his desk.

Win edged his way to the back of the room next to me, still looking utterly horrified.

"I'm sorry! I swear I didn't plan on saying that! It just kind of came out in the moment... Fuuuuuuck.... FUCK!!!" He groaned while he smacked the palm of his hand into his forehead a few times.

I grabbed his hand to stop him, and laced my fingers with his. I was a little mad at first, purely because I had spent so long trying to restrain myself around others and then he just blurts it out in front of everyone..

But then I realized, I could snuggle and kiss my Winnie as much as I wanted at school now.

The positive definitely outweighed the negative on that one.

"Dumbass.... But at least I can do this now..." I leant down and placed a sweet, tender kiss on his soft lips, resulting in a series of gasps and cat calls from the other students.

As I pulled my face back from his, he turned his face away from me while the heat rose in his cheeks, painting them an adorable shade of pink.

"Idiot... Now there's no chance that they will believe that I meant to say "best friend" instead of "boyfriend"..." He muttered shyly.

I pulled him into a cuddle as he grumpily, but weakly, tried to push me off of him. "I think I like this way better though. Now I can snuggle you whenever I want to!"

I was expecting more of a negative reaction at us coming out, but the people in this class seemed to think it was cute.

I wasn't stupid enough to expect everyone else to react the same way though.

We spent the rest of the class answering a barrage of questions from everyone, no one seeming to care that I wasn't actually supposed to be in this class to begin with. The group that had formed around us dispersed as quickly as it had formed, as soon as the bell rang to signal the end of school.

As we were walking out of the front gates, Zach and Mason ran to catch up with us.

"Did you seriously come out during your art presentation, Win?!" Zach teased, a massive grin on his face.

"..... Shut up...."

Mase chuckled and shot Win a cheeky, knowing smirk, as he wrapped an arm around Zach while they walked. "Looks like someone panicked again."

Winnie whirled around, kicking Mason's ass in response.

"So... I'm picking this wasn't the first time something like this has happened?" I asked, trying to hold in my laughter, lest I be kicked as well.

Wins face burned with embarrassment, as he zipped up the hoodie he had put on as we left the class. He then yanked the hood over his head and pulled the drawstring tight so only the tip of his cute little button nose was visible through the small hole.

I quickly put my arm around him and pulled him tight into my side, so the idiot wouldn't walk into anything or fall over because he couldn't see.

"We've only witnessed it once.... Last year in English we had to write a speech on some topic I can't remember... We had to memorize it, and were only allowed a few cue cards, but Win lost his before class. He got about halfway through his speech before he started babbling, which somehow turned into him telling everyone that he still slept with a stuffed toy." Zach reminisced.

"A tie dyed rainbow triceratops I think?" Mason laughed.

I knew exactly what he was referring to. "You mean squeaky?"

Win blindly elbowed my side in annoyance.

"Yeah that was it!..... I'm picking he still sleeps with it then..?" Zach asked, unable to contain his laughter.

"Pssh! No, he sleeps with me. Squeaky lives on his bedside table now."

Zach and Mason both doubled over with laughter, and I could just make out a muffled groan coming from Win underneath his hoodie. He grumpily tried to yank it back off, awkwardly struggling to free his face. I chuckled at his stupidity, and helped him get his hoodie off, making him look even more embarrassed because he had managed to get himself stuck in a damn hoodie of all things.

"You guys suck." He sulked.

I snuggled him tight against me, swaying side to side with him in my arms as we walked. "Awwwww, Winnie baby, you are full of surprises.... Weird fucking surprises.... I love it."

"Whatever.... Loser.... You're weird...." He grumbled, as he pried my arms off of him. "What's the plan for the weekend guys? Anything good?"

Zach stared at Win like he was an idiot. "School festival..."

"That's this weekend?" Mason gasped.

"Seriously Mase, the posters are plastered all over the school... How could you not know that?" Zach groaned as he pinched the bridge of his nose.

"I didn't either though...." I admitted sheepishly, raising my hand awkwardly.

Winnie did the same. "Yeahhhhh..... Same here...."

Zach rubbed his forehead in frustration, as Mase beamed a goofy, self satisfied smirk at him.

Sometimes I felt bad for Zach, because he had to deal with three oblivious idiots all day every day.

"Think of it this way Zachy, without you, us three would be lost.... Well... Probably just bored as fuck really... But you know what I mean." Mason jested, pinching Zach's ass cheekily.

Zach swiftly smacked him on the back of his head in response. "Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. I'm awesome. So we going to go or what? We can invite the others too. I reckon it will be fun to see what stupid crap all of the clubs are doing for it."

"What do you mean?"

I had never been to a public school's festival before. My Private Academy in London only held brunches, balls, and high tea's.

"The school clubs are allowed to use the festival as a way to get extra funds for club activities and stuff. The school gives them a small budget to set up a stall of some kind. There's usually food, face painting, balloon animals, hand made crafts.. That kind of shit.." Win stated with disinterest.

"Ahhh, okay. Any of you guys in any clubs?"

"Ew. No." Win grimaced.

Zach chuckled, shaking his head. "Definitely not."

"We like to limit our involvement with school to... Well.. School. The festival is an exception though.. I wanna go on some rides! And your Winnie is a sucker for the sideshow games." Mase added cheekily, cocking his head up as a sly grin took over his face.

"Really, Winnie?"

"..... I'm competitive... Shut up." Win grumbled in annoyance.

Zach and Mason both called out at the same time, "Lies." Before turning to each other and giggling at their synchronisation.

"He likes the fluffy toys you get when you win." Mase beamed cockily, throwing his hands up defensively, in anticipation of the punch he was sure to receive from Win.

Win, of course, delivered a swift, brutal kick to his shin instead.

"Screw you guys. You all suck." Win growled, as he spun on his heel and stormed away, while the three of us burst into fits of uncontrollable laughter.

I was surprised he hadn't beaten us all to a pulp for making fun of him, but the small smile that played on the corner of Wins mouth, told me he was only pretending to be mad.

I loved seeing Win like this.

Every day he was coming out of his shell more and more, and he actually seemed to be having fun. He was still my little grumpy bum, but there was happiness behind it, not the same coldness as before.

I fucking loved it.

I didn't think he could get any cuter, but he did. Every time he smiled, my heart felt like it would explode, and I found myself smiling along with him involuntarily.

Oh man, I am so far gone....

Definitely no turning back now...

Not that I would ever want to.
