Please read and enjoy! ^ ^ /
Eunhyuk leaned against the doorframe of his own room, holding a to go cup of coffee, and looked at Donghae lying sprawled across his bed as if peering at him over a pair of glasses.
"Hello, sweetheart," Donghae said, waving from where he lay. "You look good."
"Do I?" Eunhyuk glanced down at himself, dressed in casual clothing, a zip-up hoodie loosely hugging his sides to keep out the cool spring air.
"Where'd you go? To buy that?"
Eunhyuk glanced at his coffee questioningly, and Donghae nodded.
"Didn't you get me anything?" Donghae pouted.
"No," Eunhyuk laughed, shutting the door behind him. "I didn't know you'd be here. What are you doing here?"
"Aww." Eunhyuk sat down on the bed and smiled at him. "Well, let's fix that."
"What did you get?" Donghae sat up and glanced suggestively between Eunhyuk's face and the cup.
"Want to try it?" Eunhyuk crawled to the middle of the bed and pushed Donghae's legs away to make room. He held the cup out to Donghae. "Don't burn your tongue."
"Thanks." Donghae sipped it. Eunhyuk watched as his expression quickly turned from curiosity to disgust. He coughed as he gave it back to him, his mouth drawn into a thin line and his eyes screwed up.
"What's wrong?" Eunhyuk laughed.
"What is that?"
"It's a strawberry mocha," Eunhyuk replied innocently. He laughed at Donghae's expression and eased the lid off of the cup. "You don't like it?"
Donghae shook his head, as if to say no one would, and Eunhyuk smiled.
"Just have the whipped cream, then," he said.
"You don't mind?"
He shrugged. "I like the coffee."
"Okay." Donghae took it from him again and skimmed the whipped cream off of the top, watching as Eunhyuk stood up and took his hoodie off and hung it up. Eunhyuk stretched his hands over his head and yawned, and looked back at Donghae with a smile.
"Either I drink that and stay awake or we nap, and I drink it later when it's cold."
"Cold coffee is the best coffee."
"You just want to sleep with me."
"I told you I'm lonely. I need love."
"You're so cute when you're honest." Eunhyuk laughed softly and took the drink from him. He sipped it, smiled with satisfaction at the flavor, and set it down on the nightstand with the lid loosely covering it. Donghae moved over as Eunhyuk pulled back the blanket and got beneath it, tugging on Donghae's arm. Donghae joined him and immediately snuggled into him.
"Why are you feeling so lonely?" Eunhyuk murmured, pulling the blanket up around them. He turned towards him and sighed, his fingers lightly stroking Donghae's hair. Donghae shrugged and planted a small kiss on his neck.
"I don't know. I just want you."
"It's not like we haven't been seeing each other."
"It's everything," Donghae said in a rush. "It's work and stress and people and expectations we have to meet, and I just want to forget all of that and be with you for a while."
"Sorry." Eunhyuk sighed and slung his arm over Donghae. "I should have asked you to come with me to the café."
"It's okay. I waited for you."
"Obviously." He laughed. "You're right here."
"Hyukkie, why do you like strawberries so much?"
"Ahh...why is my tongue red?"
"Because you're human."
"No, no. It's because there is a strawberry's soul there who was separated from its strawberry lover long ago. It wants to find that strawberry, so I keep eating them, searching for the right one. I just haven't found it yet."
Donghae laughed. "What kind of story is that?"
Eunhyuk laughed and kissed his cheek. "A made-up one."
"What will you do if you find that strawberry?"
"Well, they would only be reunited for a moment, wouldn't they? And strawberries aren't very smart. It would probably think that the strawberry had just left and not been eaten...so I'd just keep eating more."
"You'll never stop, will you?"
"No. I love them. Strawberries." Eunhyuk nodded to himself.
"If you had to be without one thing forever, would it be me or strawberries?"
Eunhyuk rolled his eyes. "Please."
"If you want me to say that I love you, just ask."
Donghae hid his face against him, and Eunhyuk started to laugh again.
"Why are you being shy?"
"Just...me or strawberries?"
"Good." Donghae sighed with relief and then laughed. "But Hyukkie..."
"Tongues are pink."
