A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
“You have two dads? So, who wears the pants in their relationship?”
Bikky rolled his eyes. He liked the guys on his college basketball team, but some of them asked some really dumb questions.
“I have one dad who happens to live with his boyfriend, and they both wear pants,” he replied scornfully. “They’re regular guys, not drag queens.”
“Yeah, but who’s the boss? You know; the man of the house?”
“Neither of them. Why does someone have to be boss? They make decisions together, both pay their share of the bills and do their share of the chores; it’s a partnership, like any good relationship should be.”
“Pay no mind to him, Biks,” one of the other guys said, grinning. “Todd’s a Neanderthal, thinks men should work and women should stay home, have babies, and cater to their husband’s every need. I keep telling him he needs to step into the twenty-first century but… There’s a reason girls lose interest in him after a few dates.”
Bikky laughed. “If I tried to treat Carol like that she’d kick my ass. She’s scary.”
“Why are you with her then?” Todd asked, bemused.
“Because I love her. She’s incredibly smart, funny, beautiful, and knows how to take care of herself,” Bikky replied. “She makes me a better person, and I wouldn’t want to change a single thing about her.” He grinned suddenly, finally realising something. Ryo and Carol were a lot alike; maybe what he saw in Carol, Dee saw in Ryo. Both he and Dee had instinctively sought out someone who would bring out the best in them, and their love for the special someone in their lives in turn brought out the best in their partners. “Carol and I are equals, just like my dad and his boyfriend are.”
