7 - "I dreamt about you last night"
I thought about Cindereki but said that would be too easy and expected. So no princesses today 😔 Hope you enjoy this!
Reki raises an eyebrow as Langa leans in closer, his chopsticks pointed at his lunch.
"Are you finishing that?"
"The lunch I'm currently eating?"
Langa sighs as he slumps back against the wall. His head is tilted back as he whines. "I didn't pack enough food this morning. Forgot half of it on the counter."
Reki furrows his brow as he glances at Langa. Sure, Langa is forgetful by nature, but it's unlike him to forget his lunch of all things. It's usually the first thing he packs in the morning.
"What's got you so distracted today?" Reki asks as he hands Langa a bag of homemade cookies.
Reki flushes at Langa's nonchalance. He knows Langa has the habit of saying things straight but it doesn't make it easier for him. Not when he says things like that.
"So..." Reki glances at Langa before quickly turning his attention back to his food. "How exactly am I distracting you?"
"I dreamt about you last night."
If Reki thought he was hot before, he isn't ready for that. His cheeks burn as he chokes on his bite. He chokes and coughs out a "what?," his eyes huge and staring at Langa. He's never had anyone dream of him; at least, he's never had anyone tell him they dreamt about him.
"Yeah, I..." Langa takes a bite of a cookie, his smile small and shy. "I dream about you a lot, actually."
"What..." Reki can't bring himself to look directly at Langa anymore, so he stares at their hands, side by side on the concrete. "Do you remember what happened? Am I at least cool in your dreams?"
"You're always cool, Reki."
Reki drops his head in his hands, groaning. No matter how many times Langa compliments him, he'll never get used to it. He'll never not burn red in the face as Langa leans closer, whispering to his ear that he's amazing and awesome. Reki will never not blush like mad as he covers Langa's mouth with his hand.
"Dude, just tell me what you remember."
Langa's fingers curl around Reki's as he pushes his hand away. His face is also flushed, a pale pink blush blossoming under his eyes.
"I don't remember much; the details are pretty hazy now. But I do know that you were there. I think we were walking in some sort of forest? Along a river too? We were looking for something, I think, but I can't remember. It's a little blurry. And," under his blue hair, his ears turn red, "I might have been a little distracted looking at you."
Reki giggles as his hand squeezes Langa's. He giggles as Langa goes on with his story, occasionally pressing his lips in a thin line as he pinches his eyebrows, trying to recall as many details as possible. He giggles as the dream grows more and more ridiculous.
"There was a giraffe. I don't know why there was a giraffe, but it was there. And it was talking. It told us to follow it if we wanted to find whatever it was we were looking for. And I think it was green."
Reki snorts as he covers his mouth. "I should draw that. A green talking giraffe; sounds like a pretty interesting sketch."
Langa glances at Reki, a smile pulling at the corners of his mouth. His blue eyes sparkle under the midday sun, blue as the seas, the skies, the most beautiful color Reki's ever seen.
"There's one thing I still vividly remember."
"What's that? Pink tigers?"
Langa chuckles as he shakes his head. "That I woke up before I got to do this."
Reki can taste the cookies on Langa's lips as he closes the distance between them. He can taste the sweetness of Langa's lips as he kisses him back. He can feel the sheer happiness from the smile that is pressed against his, giggles mingling.
"I guess you're cooler than dream Reki since you make my dreams come true."
Laughter bubbles out of Reki as he shoves Langa away, calling him a sap. Yet, when Langa pulls him back for another cookie-crumb-infested kiss, Reki doesn't resist, only melting under the touch.
