Suzaku decided that he would never go shopping with Gino again.
The first time they did, he ended up with a large (stuffed) panda which did absolutely nothing but frown – it was grinning, Gino insisted – at him from the top of the drawer every morning.
The second time they did, he ended up with two gigantic (stuffed) dogs, a Golden Retriever and a brown German Shepherd which were as tall as his waist and took up so much space in his closet – Arthur particularly enjoyed chewing the golden one, so putting them outside was out of the question – that most of his clothes were now stacked on the floor.
After these first two experiences, Suzaku figured out that he would have to decline any other invitation to go shopping together with Gino if he still wanted to have a bedroom.
Gino exclaimed that the (stuffed) panda and the (stuffed) dogs were the proof of his undying love.
Suzaku told him that he missed the point by at least a hundred miles.
Gino silenced him with a kiss and dragged him out anyway.
The truth was it wasn’t about those stuffed animals or the fast dwindling space of his bedroom. It wasn’t even about two grown men visiting that section in the department store which no grown man should ever visit.
The truth was the first time they went shopping together, they ended up in a small, cozy coffee shop and Gino was holding his hand under the table throughout their stay like they were a couple on a date – which they weren’t, because even though he let Gino did unmentionable things to him in his bedroom sometimes (or most of the nights, depending how one looks at it) they were absolutely not in relationship.
An evil voice cackled somewhere in the back of his mind and said that he was in denial.
Suzaku replied that they all lived near a river in Egypt.
The voice pointed out maliciously that he wasn’t exactly putting up much fight to pull his hand away.
Suzaku ordered it to shut up.
Gino asked if he could kiss him right now – and licked that cream off his lips.
He got a kick under the table and a death glare for his troubles.
The truth was the second time they went shopping together, Gino ended up ignoring his warning and kissing him in the middle of glowering bears and gawking little girls – and a few scandalized mothers reported them to the store manager for indecent exposure to their children’s tender mind.
The store manager, a kind woman of forty-five, immediately recognized who the blonde shameless man with immoral tendencies was – him being a regular patron since the innocent days of yore – and feigned ignorance.
But the third time they went to the same store together, Gino dragged him (fingers intertwining with his) to see something which Suzaku could only conclude as a (stuffed) penguin roughly at the size of his bed, and he was alarmed to find that he actually didn’t mind the thought of not having a bed that much when Gino was smiling at him like that.
It made him wonder if his sanity had finally given in to the immovable force that was Gino Weinberg. Again he was alarmed to find that even this thought didn’t shake him that much.
But it didn’t stop him from threatening, “You buy that for me and I’ll throw out the bed.”
Gino replied that it was a wonderful idea because they now could share a bed under a fairly reasonable pretext.
Suzaku stomped out of the store and vowed that he would never go shopping with Gino again.
And we all know he will XD
