Swing That Way

Title: Swing That Way
Éric Chedeville/Guy-Manuel, slight Guy-Manuel/Thomas, Thomas/Élodie
Now it was Thomas’s heart to break…
I do not own anybody mentioned!
Thought I would write some sadness about Thomas missing his chance with Guy-Manuel.


Thomas watched from the shadows, hidden by a brick column, but able to witness the club-goers swaying their hips to the beat. The beat was steady, and the ping of guitar sounds was synced together almost perfectly.

It reminded Thomas of one of Daft Punk's earlier works.

And that's why it hurt so much more; especially when he looked up to the two disco-jockeys, both happily bobbing their heads to the beat and giving each other seductive smiles.

It wouldn't matter if it were only two completely anonymous people up there, but one of the members happened to be Guy-Manuel - Thomas oldest friend, former band-mate and lover...

Well, not quite lovers. They had had a little fling with each other, but Thomas had been smitten by Élodie. And even though it broke Guy's heart, he had happily ignored his aching heart and smiled with a façade when the two had eloped and had begun to make plans for their wedding.

But now it was Thomas's time to feel the heart-ache, and it hurt like a bitch as he watched Guy-Manuel curl even closer to his new partner, and lover.

It had come as a surprise to Thomas when Guy had confided in him that - yes, he was gay.

"I didn't know you swung that way, Guy."

There was a sigh of frustration. "You of all people should know that I 'swing that way'!"

He had known. Oh God, how it had sadden him when he saw Guy-Manuel's face fall whenever Élodie or any other person - make it man or woman - had been around him.

And now it was his own face that was falling, tiny tears prickling at the corner of his eyes as he watch the other man run his fingers through Guy's hair and pull his former band-mate's mouth up to his own.

The crowd whistled and howled like animals at the display of affection, and a warm hand brushed against his back.
Startled, Thomas glanced up to see his wife smiling at the display of affection as well.

"Oh, isn't that sweet, Thomas," She said softly. "Éric just proposed to Guy!"

Thomas turned his head to the side and ran a hand over his face, trying to erase the tears before letting out a shaky breath.

"Sweet, yeah..."

Please leave anything!
