Ryo was fixing dinner when he heard Dee come in. “How’d it go?” he called.


Dee slouched into the kitchen and slumped onto a stool at the breakfast bar. “I failed.”


“You can’t fail an eye test, Dee.”


“Like Hell I can’t. She said I need glasses! My eyesight’s always been perfect!”


“Vision can change as you get older, it’s a fact of life. I wear glasses.”


“Yeah, but that’s different; you’re long-sighted, you only need ‘em for close-up, readin’ and stuff. I need ‘em for distance.” The way Dee said it, anyone would think he was going to his doom.


“Well, if you hate the thought of glasses you could always get contact lenses instead, but I happen to think with the right frames you’d look good in them.”


Dee looked up from his moping. “You do?”


“Glasses are sexy, didn’t you know that?” Drying his hands, Ryo set the towel aside and walked over to stand in front of his lover. “Something bold, dark, maybe even black. I could come with you and help you choose.”


That was a novel idea to Dee. “I get to choose?”


“Of course, idiot! Glasses are more like fashion accessories these days, you can even get designer frames; there are hundreds of styles and colours to choose from, something to suit everyone. You could have a plain pair for work and something a bit more stylish for nights out.”


Dee brightened. “In that case I guess maybe it won’t be so bad.”



The End
