It was a cold afternoon when you dragged me outside. It was freezing even we already wore winter clothes, but you were happily skipping like a 5 years old kid craving for Ice cream. I couldn’t help but to sigh, 20 minutes ago we were comfortable in our sweaters being in each other’s arms while watching television then suddenly you raised your head, looked at me. Grinning.
20 minutes ago
"Sho-chan!!! c'mon! Let's look for Ice cream!" you happily grinned at me
"Masaki it's freezing, why will you want to eat ice cream?" I frowned lightly
"Well... I don't know...I just feel like having one! Pleasee Sho-chan!!" You begged me with your puppy eyes I know I’m weak at them so I try not to look at you
"Masaki...It's cold" I reasoned out and attempt to hug you to get comfortable again
" Don't be lazy!! Pleaseee Sho-chan!! I promise as soon as we get back we'll continue to cuddle in the sofa? Pleaseeee??!?!" He dodge my hug and continue to plead, I can't help but to sigh. Well he got me.
"Okay...just keep your promise!" I looked at him to see him giggling
"You have my word Sho-chan" you replied sweetly and kissed me lightly on the cheek pulling me to our room to change
When we reached the grocery store I went to reach a basket in the corner while you ran inside and turned to me. "Sho-chan hurry up!!" your face shows clear excitement as you try to wait for me.
Still skipping happily I couldn't help but let out a chuckle by your childishness, though I can't help but to envy you. You're always free from any conditioned view, may it be related to work or not, but you were never ignorant. I woke up from my thoughts when you grabbed my hand "You're walking too slow Sho-chan! I already saw the Ice cream! C'mon!" smiling at me and dragging me once again.
As we saw the small buckets of Ice cream you smiled widely, too excited to choose which flavor will you buy. At first you chose the cookies and cream flavor but soon place it back as you see what more flavors the store have, then 10 minutes have passed, you still can't decide and I can't help but to teased you for it.
"Masaki 10 minutes have passed, how come you still can't decide?" I laughed even more when you pouted
"You're so indecisive sometimes...how about we buy every flavor in the store?" I suggest, though this time you're the one who laughed. Such a melodious laugh, the kind of laugh that I could listen for the rest of my life.
"You're silly Sho-chan..." You kissed me and pressed our forehead for a short time just enough to feel how cold the tip your nose are.
In the end you picked the cookies and cream flavor, when we reached home we did everything as you promised and of course eating that Ice cream we bought. We spend lazing around, doing nothing, just relaxing and enjoying each other’s presence. Until night that we already need to sleep.
I can't help but to look at your sleeping face as I hugged your waist to bring you closer, you were only in sweats, your hair is so messy because of laying all day. Still you're so beautiful. And as this moment, I knew I loved you more than anyone else I had ever loved. Our relationship is already years long but you never seem to ran out of surprises, I couldn't help to let out a content sigh. That moment earlier, I knew you were my once in a lifetime. And yet all we were doing was looking for ice cream.
