[It had been a couple months since Aaron Burr and John Laurens started dating. Honestly, Aaron was kind of surprised that they got together in the first place, or that they had stayed together as long as they had. This loud kid who he somehow kept running to all across campus, who kept ending up in random classes of his. (Probably it was more accurate to say that Aaron kept turning up in John's classes, actually. He was really, really serious about pre-law, but still. He found the time to take as many classes as he could. To explore different things. To keep his options open.)

John should have been the last kind of person he would get together with, but...there was something about him. His friendliness. The way he paid such close attention to Aaron. That kind of care and attention had been something he hadn't even realized he'd been missing, until John burst into his life and started giving it to him.

...Of course, there were downsides to dating an impulsive, adventurous, enthusiastic guy. He more than sometimes had really dangerous ideas. Even for dates.]

No, I agree that would be romantic. But I don't think sneaking in would be the best idea.

[Most of the people who knew John had been shocked when he and Aaron began dating. He was so much more reserved than many of John's other friends or past significant others. But John had been intrigued by him right from the start -- this guy who seemed way too smart for his age, who seemed to only let on glimmers of whatever he was thinking.

Plus, goddamn, that smile.

Oh sure, by now John knew there were a lot of times when Aaron would smile and not really mean it, but his genuine smile, the one he'd have when something actually was making him happy, that was probably the most beautiful thing John'd ever set eyes on.]

Well how else are we suppose to have a romantic picnic in an old abandoned house? C'monnn. Nobody'd probably even notice we were there.

[He pouts and wraps his arms around Aaron's neck and shoulders.]

That's kind of the point. We don't?

[Despite his protesting, Aaron still doesn't look all that bothered. It just doesn't seem like the best idea, to him. If they get caught...well, he and John are who they are. They could get into a lot of trouble with the wrong police officer. Aaron definitely doesn't need that kind of record.

Still. He brings a hand up to rest on John's arm, smiling at him a little.]

We could go for a regular picnic. What's wrong with a regular picnic?

I guess nothing's wrong with a regular picnic. But it's just not as cool or fun as a secret picnic.

[Because now that he's got this idea in his head, a regular picnic just seems to pale in comparison to the excitement of a picnic they're not supposed to be on.

He closes the distance between them to give Aaron a kiss. Just a quick peck on the lips.]

Are there any downsides other than getting caught?

[Okay, the kiss is nice, and he reciprocates. BUT.

Aaron then narrows his eyes slightly as he thinks about that question, trying to find the right argument that will convince John that this is a bad idea. (He doesn't necessarily think he's going to find that argument, honestly. He knows John well enough to realize that sometimes this sort of thing is a losing battle. That he needs to pick and choose what he's going to drag his feet about.)

Trying to point out his actual concern is just going to make John dig in harder. The idea of injustice, and having someone to fight.]

Better scenery somewhere else?

[...Yeah sure, he'll go for the superficial. Is a rundown house really the best locale for a date, really?]

[His pout intensifies, leaning on Aaron even more than he had been before.]

Mannnnn, come on. What're your ideas for a spot then?

[It's not that he's particularly dead-set on NEEDING this picnic, but the idea is in his head, and until it gets replaced with a better idea, he isn't going to understand what the problem is.

Besides, he thinks he could make it look really precious. Get some battery-operated christmas lights to string up, maybe have like, candles or something too? Shit, that would be great. He's up for something else, but it would have to be really good to outweigh this mental image he's created for the two of them.

And in the mean time, he's planning on being a whiny little butt about it.]
