“What is all this stuff anyway?” Ryo’s old place had always been tidy, practically minimalist; Dee couldn’t understand how there had been so much to move in the first place.
“Oh, that lot’s Bikky’s,” Ryo replied, gesturing to the biggest pile of boxes. His smile was tinged with nostalgia.
“WHAT?! The house ape’s not even gonna be living here, why are we stuck with all his stuff?”
“He couldn’t take everything with him to college and it doesn’t make any sense to pay for storage when he might need his things when he visits. It can all go in his room so he’ll feel at home when he’s here.”
Dee knew he could be dense at times, but as he looked at his partner, understanding dawned. Bikky had been such a huge part of Ryo’s life for years, but now he was living at the other end of the country. It wasn’t really Bikky who needed all his stuff here; it was Ryo himself. He just wanted to feel like the kid was still here and could come home any moment. Sighing in resignation, Dee surrendered to the inevitable.
“Whatever. We can unpack it all in the morning.”
