There were butterflies in Antonio's stomach. He felt like each exhale should release a cloud of them into the air, but it didn't happen. This was a bit ridiculous, he had gone out with Mathias hundreds of times. He didn't know why he was so anxious, he had been on plenty of dates before with girls in Spain and he didn't know those girls beforehand! He definitely knew Mathias, they were best friends. Though, best friends didn't usually kiss.... or ask each other out on dates... He had tried not to think of it as a date, but just one of their normal hangouts to help him calm down, but it didn't work. His heart still beat loudly in his ears and the butterflies raged on in his stomach. This was just so nerve racking!
Should he have dressed up a bit more? Mathias was always wearing stylish clothing, Antonio felt like he would probably look a little silly in comparison. However, this was the best thing he owned and stealing a set of Mathias' clothes to wear on a date with him would be a little awkward. At least he combed his hair.
He glanced at his cell phone to check the time, briefly wondering if he set out too early. He did want to give Mathias space to get ready since they were roommates. Though, now that he thought about it, he could have just waited in the common room and walked here with him. Next time he would have to do that, it would probably be more fun! Well, if there was a next time....
Antonio shook his head and leaned up against a wall near the entrance to the lounge. Hopefully Mathias would get here soon so they could just have a good time and dispel these silly worries that kept popping into his head!

Mathias had spent a good hour looking through his clothes, trying to find something that worked for the date he had planned tonight. He tried clothes that were casual, clothes that were fancy, and everything in between, but he had been completely stumped. Of course Antonio had never been the type who cared, and Mathias knew that better than anyone, but it was a date. And not just the type that girls sometimes went on, but... a real, full fledged romantic date.
He was somehow feeling a little lightheaded, and he was the type who never got nervous! (Well, unless heights were involved, but that is a different story.) He just wanted things to be the same as they always were with Antonio, and he was terrified of things changing.
But would things be any different if the two of them were dating? People had always confused them for a couple because they did all kinds of things together, but... what if he wanted too much from Antonio? Mathias didn't have any huge demands or anything, but he just didn't want things to change his relationships with his best friend.
In his panic, Mathias realized that a bit of sweat had formed on his brow. He sighed to himself and quickly wiped it off. Why was he panicking? This was so unlike him! Antonio hadn't ever been a malicious person, and if things didn't work out, they'd probably go right back to being best friends.
Nodding to himself, Mathias gathered up his things, and put on a nice button-up top, a pair of pressed jeans and casual-dress shoes. He couldn't say he was dressed up beyond recognition, but he usually did dress like this, and he usually tended to dress up more than most.
Now he was ready to go.
Glancing at his watch, he was happy to see that he wasn't running late, and as usual, he'd be right on time for their meeting. He quickly left the dorm and sprinted down the sidewalks until he was in town again, and almost immediately upon spotting Antonio, the Dane ran up to him and grinned.
“Hey buddy, looks like you finally combed your hair!”
Awhh man! What a lame way to greet someone on your first date! Mathias couldn't help but laugh at himself. But it was true. Antonio was just so handsome with his hair combed, and the fact that he tried to dress up nicely made Mathias' heart sore.
“So are you taking me on the date, or am I taking you?”

"Hey buddy, looks like you finally combed your hair!"
The sound of Mathias' voice made Antonio's nerves flutter up into his chest and then vanish with his next exhale. He hopped off the wall and walked up to him. "Ah you noticed! Does it look nice? Yours looks nice."
It was so much easier to feel relaxed now! He strode up to him with a big grin on his face, stopping when they were practically nose to........ collar. One of the biggest problems that Antonio found himself facing with Mathias was that the Dane was just too tall to surprise with kisses! Granted, he did have a few tricks up his sleeve to get them on the same level, but it would be nice to just plant one on him without having to hop up on his tip toes or yank him around to get the angle right.
He slid his hands into Mathias', tugging him down just enough so that he could lean up and press a quick kiss to his cheek. "I was thinking that we could just take each other out at the same time! ....That makes sense, right?"
Antonio stepped back, letting go of one of Mathias' hands so he could lead him towards the restaurant. "I got us a table here, I figured we could eat first, to get it out of the way!"
He laced their fingers together, giving his hand a small squeeze. It was nice to finally be able to indulge in the urges he would get to do little things like this without having to use the excuse that Spanish culture was just that affectionate. He did want to smother Mathias in all of the kisses that he had been holding back, but that would have to wait for later!

"I was thinking that we could just take each other out at the same time! ....That makes sense, right?"
Mathias could only nod out a reply to Antonio's chattering. Of course this was one of Antonio's usual greeting kisses, there was nothing different with this. But thinking about it now, Antonio couldn't just laugh off their lip kisses with a 'it's just Spanish culture!' Of course they both knew it wasn't, or else they wouldn't be here today, but that didn't matter.
Nothing mattered because they had decided to go through with this! Mathias couldn't be happier!
"Yeah it makes sense! Anything is okay with me, you know!" To be honest, Mathias would've preferred it if he paid for the meals because Antonio wasn't exactly what one would call well-off, which Mathias knew right away from their very first meetings back in first year. Antonio took such good care of his uniform, and on the weekends stuck to wearing clothes that looked like they had been used for farming, playing, sleeping and any number of things.
But once Antonio got something on his mind, Mathias didn't try to stop him. His appearance was that of a clueless easy-going individual, but there was a stubborn streak that Mathias had experienced a few times.
Plus, it was their first date! He had to let Antonio have some fun and treat him!
The Dane leaned against Antonio as they walked together through town.
"Hey you wanna hear something funny? I had a dream that I went on a date with you once! Except it actually went pretty badly, because I kept getting nervous and accidentally being mean... But I'm not even nervous at all now that I'm actually here with you!"
