“You've never – really?” Danny asked in surprise.
“No Danny, I haven't,” Steve replied looking a little sheepish as he admitted to the fact. “Plenty of women, but you would be the first.”
“Honestly,” Danny repeated again. It was like being blind sided, hit by a freight train he wasn't aware of or expecting. “None. Ever?”
“Jesus Danny, make a bigger deal of it why don't you?” Steve snapped. His nerves were already frayed from telling him, afraid it would change things, slow them down or even turn Danny off. “No Danny never. Plenty of women over the years – well okay not plenty, but – you get what I mean. But no, no men. Zero. Nada.”
“I just assumed,” Danny said, calming his tone seeing Steve was spooked by his reaction. “Well the way we've been going, what's been developing, you seem so sure of yourself.”
“Why would I be unsure?” Steve asked with a small laugh.
“You don't seem so sure now,” Danny said with a small shrug.
“Yeah well things are getting more physical,” Steve pointed out. “I think it wise to give you a heads up in case you have high expectations about what our first time will be like. We're in unknown territory for me now.”
“Sorry I seem surprised,” Danny apologised, moving closer again. His initial reaction had caused him to peel back. “And a little confused to be honest, because a guy like you I can't imagine many people not wanting to get their hands on you, regardless of gender.”
Steve laughed lightly giving a shake of his head. “Maybe I missed all the signs of interest from other guys. But none of them were you D. I've honestly never given it much thought. I labelled myself as straight because I'd never been attracted to another guy until you came along. Then my world kind of tipped over and in a weird way things actually slotted into place. Not that I ever felt like I was missing out on somethings or denying part of myself but past relationships haven't ever been like this for me.”
“So you aren't freaking out at the idea of us getting more – physical?” Danny asked, feeling the tension in Steve's body at the question.
“I'm not freaking out,” Steve assured him. “But I want you to understand if I seem out of my depth. I didn't want you thinking it was because I wasn't enjoying it or bored or something stupid like that.”
“I promise you won't be bored,” Danny laughed giving him a squeeze of reassurance. “I promise to try and make it good for you.”
“I wasn't trying to say it won't be,” Steve pointed out. “But you understand why I'm telling you right?”
“Yeah babe, I get it,” Danny told him. “And thank you for being honest. We'll take it real slow okay?”
“Not too slow I hope,” Steve teased, feeling eased after broaching the subject.
“Well, some things we will have to take slow, but there's fun in that,” Danny said in thought. “But you know what you like and I'm pretty sure it'll be the same kind of thing that I like so aside from certain aspects, depending on how physical you want to get at first, well I think we'll muddle through with some pretty interesting and intense results.”
“Sounds promising,” Steve smiled, feeling eager to start and tugging him closer. “When do we start?”
“The sooner the better,” Danny replied, sealing the deal with a kiss.
