@wolfiplier came up with this absolute genius prompt omg
I forgot to do younger Jack's accent oops
Jack walked into the dentist's office, clinging to his mother's hand.
"Why don't you go sit down, sweetie. I'll get you checked in."
Jack nodded and rushed over to the area where the toys were. A boy was there already, he looked older than Jack and he had darker brown hair.
"Hi." The kid said, acknowledging the boy standing there.
"Heya! I'm Jack and I'm 10." He said, puffing his chest.
"My real name's Sean though, I like Jack better." He whispered.
"Wow. You're so old."
"Well, I'm Mark and I'm 11."
Jack stood agape.
"A whole YEAR older than me? How does being 11 feel?" He quizzed, sitting next to the boy. Mark shrugged.
"I mean... the same I guess? So why're you here?"
"I'm getting a tooth taken out. It's gonna be so cool!" Jack exclaimed. Mark huffed and made a noise like a laugh.
"Pfft, you kidding? It hurts!"
"Yeah. Duh. That's why they give you shots."
"Hasn't your mom told you?"
"No! Well now I'm scared, Mark."
"Sorry. It'll be okay."
"Mhm." Muttered Mark, putting an arm around Jack and side-hugging him. Jack smiled and hugged back.
"So what're YOU in for?" Jack questioned, and Mark laughed a bit.
"I'm just getting a cleaning."
"No fair!" Jack whined, pouting.
"We might get done at the same time, though."
"Can we ask our mommies if we can hang out again?"
"Ey, Mark! Come on!" Jack called, holding two remotes.
"I'm coming, I'm coming!"
"Well yeh've gotta hurry up before I start this race and beat ya."
"You wouldn't dare. I told you I'm coming!" Mark yelled from the hall, finally making it to the door.
"Alright, let's start this race." He whispered, pressing the start button on Mario Kart.
This night seemed normal, but it was the seventeen year anniversary of them meeting. All those seventeen years ago at the dentist, neither boy knew of what was in store for them. Fame was coming quickly, yet they relished and played in the light of youth. (That sounded really cheesy ugh)
And still, neither of them knew who would be the first to utter the words that meant most, the most out of seventeen years of words:
I love you.
They felt the same way, yet they were afraid to show it.
