I'm not a bad boyfriend. No, really, I'm not. I love Maxwell with all my dear heart. And I did not forget his birthday.

I just didn't know what to get him. Seriously, how are you supposed to know what to get for your boyfriend's sixteenth birthday? It's fucking hard, I tell you. Fucking hard.

So, you know, I didn't do anything for him all day. And he seemed pretty bummed about it. Well, okay a little more than bummed. Depressed. He looked okay to everyone else, but I knew. But still.

WHAT THE HELL WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO?

By nine o'clock that night, though, I managed to have an idea. (Yes, nine o'clock. I'm a slow thinker, I'm sorry.)

I knocked on his bedroom door, since his parents had let me in immediately upon greeting me. He smiled when he opened his bedroom door.

"Happy birthday," I said, smiling back and leaning in to peck him on the lips.

He kissed me back and held my hands. "Thanks Jeremiah."

"I'm sorry I didn't get you anything today," I said guiltily, staring down at my feet. "I just didn't know…"

He chuckled as I trailed off, and tugged at my hands again. "You don't need to get me anything," he said, though something in his voice said otherwise.

I pulled away and gave him a look. "Yes I do."

Maxwell frowned. "No, I don't—" he started.

But I cut him off by kissing him again, this time pulling him by the collar of his shirt. I pushed him into his bedroom wall, cupping his face in my hands. My tongue slipped its way into his mouth, and I bet down on his lips gently as my hands started opening the top of his shirt. He made a small content noise as my hands found the crook of his neck, then his jaw line. I bowed my head down to his hands and brought them up to my face, and then put them in my mouth, coating saliva around his fingers. I felt him shiver in my hold, and smiled a little, glancing up at him.

"I told you I needed to get you something," I whispered, pulling his fingers out from between my lips for a little, and leaning in to peck him on the lips, breathing hot against his skin.

He just grinned at me with his pink cheeks, and pulled me into another kiss.
