January 21st, Year 110
Chuuya woke up as the first rays of light came through the window. He’d come over to Dorothea’s place, bringing wine and conversation with him, though once they finished the bottle, they went to bed.
The redhead had slept that night on the couch in the living room, not wanting to bother Dorothea with setting a guest room or anything like that. Chuuya sat up and stretched, hearing his bones pop and muscles loosening from their stiffness.
He did some stretches and did a slight warm-up since it was early in the morning, making sure to be mostly quiet. And once it was a reasonable time, he decided to make coffee. Maybe he could also make breakfast for Atsushi and Dorothea.
But once he did brew coffee, Chuuya heard a door open and the sound of footsteps moving through the house. And that was when he saw Atsushi—in night clothes. Kind of funny and kind of cute.
Either way, he waved at the kid when he looked at him, almost dumbstruck. “Hey, kid. Long time no see.” Not the best reunion greeting but it was the best he had right now.
