He had heard people say that the hardest part of parenting was accepting when they don’t need you anymore. Reggie disagreed. He was sure the hardest part of parenting was finding a butt plug hidden in your teenager’s floorboards.

Finding it in the middle of the school year was probably for the best. He had time to process and plan. He could see why such a proclivity would make Freddy feel alone. Angry even. The aggression made some sense.

Christmas break was here now. It was the best chance he was going to get. He had coerced the kid into helping him work on the engine of his current pet project, a 1956 Chevy Bel-Air Classic. “Uh, hand me that wrench, will ya?”

Over the years, Freddy had gotten better at reading Reggie's various moods, not that there was a great range of them. Today however, his eyes had a persistent gloss of constipation in them, which meant he had something Important he was building up to saying.

So Freddy had cautiously agreed to help him with the car and suggested they bring a few beers with them because he had a feeling he'd need them. Though it wasn't exactly his passion, Freddy still liked working on cars. He had some knowledge about them thanks to Reggie, and there was something satisfying about using his hands.

Freddy had just cracked open his first can of beer and was gulping it down as he handed over the wrench with a grunt.

“Thanks.” He took it without looking at him and reached in to loosen a thing (Mac knows nothing about engines, ok.) Trying to sound like it was something he asked all the time, “Did you have a good semester?”

"Uh, yeah. It was okay." Leaning against a nearby work table, he peered over at what Reggie was doing.

Now that he could get weekend leave from Hogwarts, Freddy had been noticeably better behaved at school and rarely got into fights anymore.

"Have you been seeing anyone?" It wasn't the most graceful way to broach the subject, but he wasn't the most graceful guy.

Freddy had no idea how much Reggie knew, but given that rectally troubled glimmer he'd seen in his eyes earlier, he guessed he must've found some evidence by now. Or figured out at least a little of it. Scratching behind his ear, he said, "Er... yeah. Sort of."

"Cool." Reggie was relieved he wouldn't have to pry that information out. At least they were starting off on the right foot. He stood from the car and wiped his hands on a rag as he spoke. "You know Freddy, when I was a soldier, I was lucky to meet all kinds of people."

"...yeah?" Freddy took a careful sip of his beer. He could feel this leading up to something already. >.>

"I learned to judge people by who they are and the grit they have. Not by . . . social expectations." He paused and drank a mouthful of his own beer. "Age, wealth. . . those things end up not mattering much when you are fighting next to someone. You know what I mean?"

"My point it is. . ." he sipped before making his point. He had really only rehearsed the first two sentences. "I judge you based on your character. Not-" he was almost able to say the word sexuality, but he didn't. "Not anything else."

A defensive look shuttered down over his eyes. Freddy had heard "talks" like this many times from many different people over the years. "Is this about my family?"

"What?" Reggie was pried out of his nerves. "No. God no. It's a little late to bring that up don't you think?" He actually chuckled a little bit. Maybe he was relieved that there were much more pressing things in this kid's life than his preferences.

Freddy sucked in a long breath. And as he breathed it out, his voice was still tense. "Ok... great."

"No." Reggie shook his head as if to further reassure Freddy. "I just, I want you to know: anyone you chose to love is fine by me. I just want you to be happy."

Freddy could understand why Rachel would be ashamed to be dating him. He wasn't sure why he would have any reason to be ashamed to be dating her. Side-eyeing Regging, he said tentatively, "So... uh... you know, then?"

There had been a shred of doubt that maybe he wasn't, but his answer eliminated that shred. It felt good to get it out in the open and confirmed. "I put the pieces together. And I understand why you wouldn't tell me." His voice had an uncharacteristic softness to it. It was so important to him that Freddy knew that Reggie accepted him, homosexuality and all.

Who was this person even? Cautious and bewildered, like he might be dealing with an actual alien bodysnatcher, he said carefully, "So, you're okay with it, then?"

"Of course I am." He said, normal tone returning. "I know I'm old but I'm more open minded than you think." He drank more of his beer and looked back at the exposed engine.

Feeling the urge to fidget with something, Freddy took a quick sip of his beer to calm his nervous energy. "I just... wasn't sure cause of the age....."
