The green grass stretched seemingly endlessly before him in a long, smooth slope. Standing at the top of the incline, Dee sighed wistfully; too bad he was a responsible adult and not a little kid, because otherwise he might be tempted to…
He looked around himself; aside from Ryo, who was busy laying out their picnic, there was literally nobody around, not so much as a sheep to bear witness. Besides, they were on vacation. If he couldn’t indulge a few childish whims on his own time then what was the point of anything?
Lying down on the grass, which was dry and pleasantly warm, he pushed off, whooping with delight; he hadn’t done this since he was about ten or eleven.
Ryo turned at the sound to see Dee rolling down the slope, probably getting grass stains all over his clothes. “How old are you?” he asked in amused exasperation as his lover climbed back up the hill.
“Still young enough to enjoy the simple pleasures of life,” Dee grinned. “You should give it a try, it’s fun! I’m gonna do it again.”
After a moment’s hesitation, listening to Dee’s laughter, Ryo shrugged; so what if he wound up covered in grass stains? Modern detergents and stain removers would get rid of them easily enough and why should Dee have all the enjoyment?
Abandoning the picnic, Ryo stretched out at the top of the slope and started rolling, feeling like a kid again. Dee was right; it was fun!
