"we can stay here, don't know how many places are open right now anyways." He said, glancing over at Mako and smiling "you're gonna ruin your hair, and after I worked so hard on it." He teased, pressing a kiss to his boyfriend's lip and gently nudging him off the of him so that he could get the ice cream. "Any flavor in particular, I have a few to choose from."
Mako stuck his tongue out playfully and reluctantly moved over when he was nudged. "Yeah, yeah… I'm sure my hair will be fine. And you can grab whatever you want; I'll eat pretty much anything you've got, so you might as well get one you like."
"Alrighty! Coffee chocolate chunk it is then." He announced, pulling out the tub of ice cream from the fridge and two spoons from the kitchen drawers. He dropped back down on the couch and crossed his legs so that he was more comfortable and handed off a spoon to Mako
Mako accepted the spoon and started eating ice cream out of the tub, humming contentedly to himself. "Mm… this is nice. We should definitely do this more often." He kissed Zyl's cheek softly.
"we definately will, especially now that you're moving in." He replied happily, resting his head against Mako's shoulder after the kiss. "We can have date night more often too. You can teach me how to cook!"
"Yeah, yeah. I'm no fancy chef, but I guess I can teach you how to be competent." Mako ruffled Zyl's hair affectionately. "You're older than me, though. Aren't you the one who's supposed to be teaching me things?"
"I am one hundred percent competent for your infirmation, I just suck at cooking." He leaned into the touch with a happy little sigh. "Yeah but who actually knows how to do anything in their twenties? That's more for when you reach thirties." He replied with a laugh. "Fine, how bout this, you teach me how to be a decent cook so I don't starve and I'll teach you how to cut your own hair."
"Mmm… I like you cutting my hair, though." Mako huddled a bit closer, curling a lock of Zyl's hair around his finger. "It's nice. Relaxing. And I know you'll do a good job. What else do you think you could teach me, hmm?" He looked up at his boyfriend with curiosity.
Zyl closed his eyes for a few moments and lightly pressed a kiss to Mako's wrist. "I'm not sure love, maybe how to be less shy?" He teased lightly, smirking at him. "What would you like to learn from me?"
Mako huffed indignantly, his face flushing a bit. "You're so mean to me. And I dunno. I'm pretty capable as is, honestly. I can do laundry and clean and cook and stuff. Most normal adult things I can do fairly well."
He chuckled lightly and thought for a moment. "I can teach you to play the violin. Not sure how useful that is but I've always found it relaxing. And oddly satisfying when you learn a song, even if it doesn't sound the best."
"Sure, if you want. I can't really play any instruments, so I guess it could be interesting." Mako shrugged a bit, resting his head on Zyl's shoulder and humming softly.
"That's a good place to start then. We can start from the very beginning without any stress." Zyl pressed a kiss to Mako's hair and glanced up at the screen, seeing that the movie had ended and credits were playing.
"Mm…" Mako closed his eyes and huddled closer, obviously not particularly concerned about the movie being over. "I love you…" He murmured softly.
Zyl nuzzled Mako's brow and smiled softly "I love you too sweetheart." He murnured back in reply, setting aside the icecream and hugging Mako close to him
"What time is it?" Mako asked. "I'm tired but I dunno if it's a socially acceptable time to sleep…" He sighed softly, returning the nuzzles and humming softly.
"rest, hon. I'll wake you up later." He reassured, lightly brushing aside Mako's hair from his eyes. "I'll drive you home later, okay? Just get some rest."
"Alright…" Mako closed his eyes and yawned, curling up against Zyl. It didn't take him very long to drift off to sleep on the couch, seeming content and comfortable for the moment.
"beautiful thing, what am I going to do with you, hm?" He murmured, turning off the Tv and shifting on the couch so that they were both more comfortable. "Sleep well darling." He whispered, setting an alarm on his phone before he fell into a light sleep, arms wrapped around Mako
Mako stayed asleep for a while, but woke with a start when the alarm went off. He groaned softly and rubbed at his eyes, still drowsy and a bit out of it from just having woken up. "Mm… love…?"
Zyl jerked awake slightly at the sound of the alarm. He sat up a bit to turn it off and ran a hand through his hair. "I'm here." He muttered sleepily, stretching slightly. "Sorry about the alarm." He chuckled lightly and gently brushed a hand along Mako's cheek "I could get used to this."
"Mm…" Mako huddled up against Zyl, obviously still pretty sleepy. "Yeah, me too… I love you~…" He yawned and looked up at his boyfriend. "I gotta go home now, right?" He asked softly.
Zyl shrugged, running his hand through Mako's hair "if you'd like." He replied, sleep heavy in his voice "or you can stay the night. I can drive you to work in morning." He suggested, blushing slightly. "If you want, of course."
Mako flushed as well. "Ah, um… y-yeah, we can do that if you want. I'd probably have to borrow some clothes in the morning, though, since none of my stuff is here…" He buried his face in Zyl's chest.
Zyl nodded, trying his best to push through the drowsiness that compelled him to go back to sleep. "Sure, take whatever you'd like." He muttered, shifting up into a sitting position. "You can shower too if you want. I already did when I got here."
