Story: Second Genesis; the title of this piece is 'I Don't Want This Night To End.'
Summary: Noah and Jackson's first date.
All The Notes: Takes place in June 2035. The title is taken from a song of the same name by Luke Bryan. If anyone is interested in what radio station everyone is listening to in this piece, I tried my best make it here. This is not at all how I planned this to end, but Noah stopped here and just absolutely refused to talk more, and I've given up. (Judge me as you will.) I also apologize for slight time warps.

The sun was close to setting when Noah and Jackson started heading back toward the house. )
