Paint it Black part 5

     Ryan swallowed hard when he saw Daric heading towards them from the bathroom. Daric looked confused when he saw Ryan there. He opened his mouth to speak but Dallas cut him off. "I invited Ryan here. He's been doing nothing but moping around since we got here and I felt bad." Daric glared at the pitcher then looked at Ryan. "Can I talk to you outside?" Ryan nodded and followed Daric to the parking lot in back of the bar.

     Daric didn't look mad, like Ryan expected. He seemed confused and needing answers, so he took a deep breath and spoke up. "Daric, I think you should know something. I have loved you more than a friend for 3 years, since i first got here. I've tried and tried to hint but your thick ass head didn't get it.  I couldn't tell you sooner, but I can't exactly go around telling people I would like to spend the rest of my life with my innermost feelings," He paused. "I'm sorry for wasting your time." He turned to walk away.

      The first baseman was stunned, "Wait," Ryan turned around. Daric grabbed Ryan and pulled him in a tight embrace. "I am so fucking sorry dude. I really didn't know you felt that way about me." He tightened his arms around the outfielder. "I wish you would have told me sooner, though because now I feel like a total asshole about everything I said and did to you the last few days. Jesus, I am so sorry, Ryan." Daric broke the embrace. "Is there anything else you need to tell me? Because I mean, now would be the perfect time." He said this as a slight joke to lighten the severity of the moment, but was serious nonetheless. "No, I think I told you enough of my deepest feeling for one night." Ryan smiled. "I'm going to go back to the hotel. You should go make sure Dallas isn't doing something stupid." Daric smiled back. "Alright, see you."
      That night Ryan was laying on his bed thinking of what he said to Daric, how he said it, what he should and shouldn't have said. A buzz from his phone interrupted his thoughts. It was, once again, Dallas. 
     "Daric told me what happened. Congrats u lovebirds." Ryan gave a dry laugh.
     "fuck u"
     "I believe u mean thank u. If it weren't for me, this wouldnt have happened." 
     The outfielder put down his phone and got up to take a shower. Another buzz. This time, it was Daric. "Come visit me. I'm lonely."
