I was in my freshman year away at college. My roommate was a fellow I thought was a little effeminate. He was into English Lit and I was having a problem with it. So he was helping me.
One night, we were studying late and decided to take a break and go out for a beer. One beer let to two and so on. We were a little drunk walking back to the dorm that night, so we put an arm around each other's shoulder. As we laughed and talked, our faces were so close we could almost take in each other's breaths. There was something mesmering about it. We kissed. And when we got back to our room, we turned out the lights and made love. It was very tender and wonderful.
