Even something mundane can be fun with the one you love.
Especially if it’s to buy something you both use everyday ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Married (♂x♂) 43
Thomas let out a heavy and annoyed sigh.
“Yes honey, I know you’d rather be home right now,” Lin said, half amused. “You don’t need to show me.”
“That’s why I love you. You know me so well,” Thomas said with a forced smile. “Then let’s go home and not waste this beautiful day outside!”
“You know we need a new bed. And we’d appreciate today way more with a bed,” Lin muttered, his cheeks a shade of red.
Thomas couldn’t help but flash an embarrassed smile. My boyfriend knows how to manipulate me… “That’s a good reason, I guess…”
“Besides, sleeping on the mattress on the floor isn’t good for us.”
“I don’t know about that. I’ve been sleeping pretty well these past weeks. And it’s all because of you,” Thomas said, trying to make his boyfriend blush.
Instead of embarrassed, Lin smiled and kissed him on the cheek. “I’m happy to hear that. But I know you’ve been having back pain like an old man.”
“That’s because my chair at work sucks. I asked for a new one but so far I’ve been ignored.”
Lin chuckled and rolled his eyes. “I can’t believe you still think you can trick me. After all these years, you should’ve learned by now.”
“I’m not trying to trick you… It’s true my chair sucks!”
“Yes, I can tell that’s true. But the back pain is because of the bed. Now let’s go buy a new one.”
Thomas once again let out a sigh. “Why couldn’t we order online? I know we can find cheaper beds on the net.”
“The shipping is too expensive. I checked,” Lin added before Thomas could say. “It’s cheaper if we buy in a physical store.”
Though the arguments were solid and he had nothing to retort, Thomas wasn’t convinced. Stupid online stores… Why say free shipping in the whole country except north and northeast? We’re part of the country, damn it!
“It’s still no reason to waste a Saturday doing this… I’d rather pay more just to be at home right now.”
“It’s amazing how you can be a cheapskate in some places and waste money in others.”
“I’m not a cheapskate. I use my money in the smart way.”
Lin laughed. “Oh, really? Then please, enlighten me, Master of Finance. What’s the smart way to spend money?”
“The smart way is to use the money to optimize your time,” Thomas ignored the laugh and explained.
“To optimize your time?” Lin couldn’t keep the mockery out of his voice. “Then please explain how that Dragon Ball Z lamp next to our bed optimizes your time.”
Thomas looked at his boyfriend, forcing his mind to think of an answer that wasn’t too nerdy. “It motivates me to get out of bed and be more like Goku,” he answered with a serious face.
Lin let out a delightful laugh and leaned in, “My nerd boyfriend can come up with so much bullshit.”
Even Thomas couldn’t help but chuckle when they parted their lips.
“Yeah, well… You fell for that.”
“Yes, I did. And I couldn’t be happier.” Lin beamed and hugged his arm. “But how long did it take?”
“Time doesn’t matter. It’s about the result. Slow and steady. That rabbit and the turtle story.”
They looked at each other and laughed at the same time.
“What the hell are we talking about?”
“I have no idea. I’m too tired and shouldn’t be held accountable for anything I say.”
“Anything you say can and will be used against you,” Lin said, giving him a light kiss.
“You’re a cunning man, Lineu. You’re trying to make me have fun while shopping.”
“Ah, you figured it out?” he smiled. “But once again, it took you too long.”
It was impossible for Thomas to be mad at his cute boyfriend. Even so, he pretended to be and took a deep breath, letting out a breath through his nose. “I can’t believe I’m so used to being manipulated by you.”
“You make it sound like I pull your strings.”
“You do. Thanks to you, I’m a functional member of society. I wake up early to exercise, I don’t stay up all night playing games or watching anime anymore, and on top of it all, I’m in a great and wonderful relationship with someone I love. That’s all on you, pal.”
“I’m so happy to hear that. Now let’s go buy a bed!” Lin beamed and dragged Thomas.
The street was pack with people. They had trouble walking side by side and had to settle with holding hands.
Thomas couldn’t help but smile as the thought crossed his mind. I can’t believe holding hands with him is enough to make me happy… I’m really in love with this guy.
They turned in a small street with several different stores. As they walked to the mattresses and bed store, Thomas noticed Lin eyeing a sneaker in one of the windows.
“What kind of bed you want?” he asked when they entered.
“One that can handle us,” Thomas said with a cocky smile despite his red cheeks.
Lin chuckled and slapped him in a friendly way. “Yeah, we need a sturdy bed for all your crazy ideas.”
“Mine? You’re the one who–”
“Welcome!” Almost like materializing out of nowhere, a vendor appeared by their side. “Can I help you two?”
“Yes. We need a bed frame. Our old one… broke,” Lin said, trying to suppress his smile.
Thomas didn’t even try. He looked away and covered his mouth, but it wasn’t enough to hide his embarrassed laugh. Thanks to that, Lin failed and chuckled.
The vendor understood and smiled too. “I think we have what you’re looking for.” She led them deeper into the store where the wooden bed frames were. “These are sturdier.”
“What do you think?” Thomas asked. “I honestly don’t care much as long we can put the mattress on it.”
“Don’t say that. Look, this one is big. That’s good, especially since you tend to take most of the bed.”
“What? I don’t do that.”
“Yeah, you do. You almost push me out of the bed at nights. Every time,” Lin said, flashing a cute smile.
Thomas shook his head. “Stop lying.”
“You also hog the covers, by the way.”
“More lies? When will you stop?”
Lin laughed and turned to the vendor. “Can I test it?”
The woman nodded and he laid on the bed. However, instead of taking half the mattress, he was on the corner, almost falling off.
“You’re still going with that joke?”
“This is how I sleep. I mean, how I end up after you push me.”
“Just so you know, I’m not amused.”
“But I am. C’mon, let’s see some more beds.”
Thomas was red, sweating and panting. Despite his anger, he didn’t give up.
Lin was by his side with a sympathetic smile. “We should’ve paid…”
Thomas clutched the tools with more strength than necessary. “It was too expensive. They were cheating us with that price!”
“Yes, they were. But didn’t you say something about using the money to optimize your time? If we had paid them to set the bed up for us, we could have been testing it by now. That would be the smart thing to do. And fun too.”
“Shut up,” Thomas muttered and pouted, getting a smile from his boyfriend.
“Here.” Lin handed him a glass of water.
“Thanks.” Thomas drank it all in one gulp and put the glass down. He took deep breaths ad his face was as red. “Help me.”
Together, the two of them managed to put up the bed frame and the mattress on top of it.
After they finished, Thomas cleaned the sweat from his brow. “Finally. It took way longer than we should. Stupid instructions.”
“It’d have helped if you didn’t ruin the Portuguese and the English version.”
“It wasn’t my fault! Stupid paper that rips easily.”
“Yeah, the paper’s fault,” Lin teased, flashing a mischievous smile.
“Shut up,” Thomas rushed, taking his boyfriend’s hand to stand and look at their work. “It looks good.”
“Yeah, it does. And you looked so manly doing it.”
“Shut up,” Thomas muttered again, his cheeks a shade of red that had nothing to do with the physical effort. He wrapped his arms around Lin’s waist and brought him closer. “There’s only one way to test if the new bed is good.”
“You’re right,” Lin said with a sly smile.
They kissed and lie on the bed, getting even sweatier than they already were.
