A/N: This one’s a double drabble and a half, 250 words.
Wearing a suit to work is one thing, getting done up in a tux is something else entirely. Dee frowns into the mirror, trying for the tenth time to tie the blasted bowtie; he’s about ready to throw it out the window and hang the consequences, but it’s Carol’s wedding day and he doesn’t want to upset his Princess.
Why’d she have to insist on formal though? Is this retaliation for his crack about her not being qualified to wear white?
“Aren’t you ready yet?” Ryo appears in the doorway, already immaculately turned out.
“My tie won’t go right.” Dee hates that hint of a whine in his voice too, but frustration is getting the better of him.
“Why didn’t you say something?” Ryo sounds fondly exasperated. “Here, let me.” He comes up behind Dee, looking over his husband’s shoulder into the mirror.
“Be my guest.” Dee drops his hands to his sides, letting Ryo reach around him to fix the tie. It’s done in less than a minute, those deft fingers working so swiftly Dee’s eyes can’t keep up. “How d’you even do that?”
“Practice.” Ryo turns Dee to face him and grins slightly sheepishly. “Ever since Carol said she wanted us in formal wear, I’ve been practicing. I knew Bikky would need help with his and I wanted to be sure I could get it right first time instead of fumbling for half an hour.”
Dee leans in to kiss him. “My hero. You always think of everything.”
