“Happy Anniversary, babe!” Dee set a tray containing a plateful of scrambled eggs and toast, and a cup of coffee on Ryo’s lap.
“Anniversary?” Ryo asked, confused and trying to figure out what anniversary it could possibly be. Not of the day they met, that had been a few weeks ago, or of the first time they slept together, which was no doubt engraved on Dee’s memory but was still several weeks away. After all, they’d only been together as a couple for ten months.
“You don’t remember? It’s been exactly two years since you kissed me after I got shot in the leg and nearly blown up,” Dee grinned. “That was the first time you let me see how you really felt about me.”
“I remember,” Ryo said softly, “but I wish I didn’t. I’ve never been more scared than I was that day, terrified that I would lose you even though I didn’t understand back then just how much you mean to me.”
“Sorry, I didn’t think; I shouldn’t have reminded you.”
“No, I’m glad you did. It’s good to remember why I should never take you for granted.” Ryo pulled Dee close, kissing him. “Happy Anniversary, Dee.”
