“Hey sunshine,” Kiriya called over the kitchen counter. Emu had been resting in the adjacent living room, lying flat on the sofa and eyes covered with his forearm. “What’s wrong?”

“Ate too much popcorn.”


“The caramel flavored one.”

Kiriya checked the kitchen self and true enough any trace of the sweet snack had vanished. And they had purchased a lot of them since Emu beamed like a child on Christmas and begged Kiriya to literally buy the whole stock because caramel popcorn is just the best how come you never ate it before (Kiriya never did. For him, popcorn had always been a salty snack and he didn’t like the idea of mixing opposite flavors, although that was not how caramel popcorn works, as he later found out).
In the end, Kiriya managed to haggle the number of packs down to four, very much to Emu’s dismay. It was more than enough and they could always buy more later or so, the older man argued. It hadn’t been two days yet and they very much ran out of popcorn.

“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should, sweetheart.”

Emu groaned. “You are the last person on earth who has any rights to reprimand me.”

“Hey, I’m already cutting back.”

“One pack.” Emu shot straight up (which actually had been a bad idea, he noticed) and looked Kiriya directly in the eyes, his expression of disapproval clearly speaking for itself. “One freaking pack of sugar!”

“You know what they say.” Kiriya brought two cups to the living room (he replaced Emu’s coffee with a cup of tea) and sat down next to his boyfriend, grinning. “Baby steps.”

“You’re impossible.” Emu didn’t have the energy nor will to argue any further. He lay down once again and slightly adjusted his position until he was finally comfortable enough and rested his head in his boyfriend’s lap.

“And yet you’re still madly in love with me.”


“No rebuttal?”

“Nah.” Emu closed his eyes. “Lying is your forte, not mine.”

“Heh.” Kiriya coughed and Emu could feel the movement of his partner’s arm. It didn’t take much to guess someone was trying to hide a flustered smile.

“I know you’re blushing.” Emu teased, his eyes still far from open.

“Oh shut up.”

“Hmmm~” Emu let out a pleased sigh. In contrast to his words, Kiriya’s touch felt incredibly soft and gentle. He fondly caressed Emu’s hair and sometimes moved one of his unruly bangs out of his face. It was one of these rare, peaceful moments shared in bliss and Emu wouldn’t have had it any other way.
