It was a quarter past three in the afternoon and Harry and Adam were now in town, shopping for groceries. They had finally finished fooling around with each other after sharing a very pleasurable shower together. They were at the supermarket and as usual, Adam was going way over the top buying things which they didn’t need just because they were on special offer.

“Baby are you sure we really need a pack of assorted multicoloured pencil decorations?” Harry questioned in a monotone voice.

“No, but they’re cute don’t you think? They’re cheap too.”

“Well, whatever but try not to over-do it ok?”

Adam replied with a smile. That way he didn’t have to say yes or no, he didn’t have to commit or promise anything but it would be enough to shut Harry up. It was a technique which he had used many times before and it usually worked.

“Anyway, is there anywhere else you want to go after we’re done here or are we done shopping after this?” Adam asked.

“Uh, I think we’re pretty much done aren’t we? Besides, it’s a Sunday so everything will be closing soon. What are we going to eat tonight? Have we bought anything for dinner?”

“Yeah I guess it is near closing time isn’t it.” Adam answered glancing at his watch. “No we haven’t thought about dinner yet have we?”. He looked up at the freezer unit in front of him, “How about pizza?”

“Sounds good to me” Harry responded happily.

Adam grabbed a pizza from the freezer, tossed it in the basket and they made their way to the checkout. After paying and bagging up that week’s groceries, they left the supermarket and headed to the car park. They were just about to get into Harry’s red ford focus when Harry stopped suddenly.

“FUCK!” Harry shouted.

“What have you forgotten this time?” Adam questioned.

“It’s James’s birthday on Tuesday and we haven’t got him a present yet!” Harry groaned, pissed off and stressed out.

“Well, don’t panic, we’ll just go back into town and get him something!” Adam replied calmly, trying to relax his boyfriend.

“Yeah we’ll have to because we both have work tomorrow. We need to hurry though before all the shops shut!”

So the boys put the groceries in the car and ran back into town, frantically trying to think about what to buy James as they ran. James was Harry’s best friend. They had known each other since high school and were very close. They had always joked with each other saying that if James wasn’t straight, they would definitely be an item. Harry knew that it wouldn’t bother James at all if he didn’t buy him anything for his birthday, but it was important to Harry that he got a present for him, whatever it was. He and James had been the best of friends for as long as he could remember and neither of them had ever forgotten the other’s birthday. Harry was determined that this wasn’t going to be the first time he didn’t get something.

“What’s the time?” Harry asked, his voice changing volume as his body jerked up and down while he ran.

“Twenty to four” Adam replied in a simple, straight to the point way.

They kept on running until they got back to where the shops were. Harry had no idea what he was going to end up buying; he just knew that he needed to decide on something fast. He was stuck. He didn’t just want to buy some random junk because then it wouldn’t mean anything. No chocolates or wine or all that boring stuff which people always buy for people’s birthday. It had to be thought out, it had to be appropriate, it had to be perfect. But he didn’t have enough time to think. He was panicking, worrying, desperately trying to come up with an idea. No matter how hard he tried to think, he just couldn’t ...
