Frank waited and waited, but after what felt like eternity he got a response;
~ hey, you scared me there, i was worried you were having second thoughts about our date tomorrow ~
He replied back;
~ of course not! you seem like a super cool guy, and i can't miss spiderman d: ~
Gerard sent back;
~ yeah, we wouldn't want to disappoint young peter parker d; ~
Frank giggled, he couldn't wait for his date, he'd only known Gerard for a few days but already he felt like he knew him. Talking to Gerard (even over text message) had made him truly laugh for the first time in months.
He texted back;
~ what a shame that'd be d: so gerard i was meaning to get to know you a bit better, you seem like a great guy, but i realized... i know absolutely nothing about you, and you know nothing about me either :c ~
After a few minutes of waiting, he got a new text from Gerard;
~ well, i don't really know where to start, um, i'm 26, from belleville, my brother mikey is one of my best friends, he's 23, i work at the doughnut shop every weekday morning, i want to be a comic artist with all of my heart, i love comics, i like dogs, i love rock music, and i really seem to like this tatooed man that I recently met ;3 ~
Frank was even more excited about Gerard now, he liked comics, dogs, and rock, plus he's an artist, how cool is that!?
He now felt obliged to tell Gerard about himself though, his response was;
~ gerard, you now seem like an even cooler person than before... I didn't think it was possible. im 23, also from belleville, im an only child, my best friends name is ray, i work at the mall in a shoe shop every day from 11-4, id be completely happy with my life if i could make a living off of playing my guitar, i too love comics(: dogs are my favorite animals, and rock's my favorite type of music too, and i seem to be taking quite a liking to this waiter i had at breakfast a few days ago c; ~
Gerard soon replied with;
~ man, you sound awesome! how have we just now met? well, I cant wait for our date c: ~
Frank caught a glimpse of his clock and gasped, it was already 10:45, he was going to be late for work.
~ aw, gee, im really sorry to do this again but i'll have to get back to you later, i gotta go to work/: ~
He slipped his phone into his pocket and got up off his bed. On his way out the door he snatched his coat up and grabbed his wallet. Soon he was on his way to the mall and another monotonous work day.
