Notes: Written for stagesoflove, prompt set #4 - Five public places (park, beach, movie theater, pool, carnival)

At the Carnival

The wheel was old and worn, with peeling paint and bright new bolts scattered in amongst the dull ones. Rodney spent ten minutes quizzing the attendant and the carnival's engineer-cum-mechanical whizz.

Later, John couldn't remember a thing about the view.

But he remembered the smile in Rodney's eyes, the way the garish lights painted him in blues and greens and reds. He remembered the taste of cotton candy in Rodney's mouth, the curls at the nape of Rodney's neck beneath his fingertips.

He remembered slipping the attendant twenty dollars to leave them alone till the carnival was over.

He remembered.

I love this! Seriously, I have a lump in my throat right now, thinking about John bribing the Ferris Wheel operator and just getting lost in Rodney and the lights and the swoop of his stomach as they went around and around.

Thank you!

As soon as I saw the 'carnival' prompt as the final one of this set, I knew it was perfect for John. :D

These were all very sweet, and the bit with the sunscreen was funny. Nicely done.

Lovely, just lovely. And, of course, what he remembered would be every little detail about Rodney. He's in love! *twirls them*

Thanks, sweetie. These have been a joy.

Hon, that's so sweet, so lovely, so beautiful. Nothing soppy about it, just the perfect ending to a love story. Love it to the rafters. You couldn't have done better.
