Hikaru closed the door on the busy day he had and Akira smiled warmly, kissing him lightly on the lips before they both settled on the couch.
"How was your day?" Akira asked politely.
"Fine," he began, shifting a little in his seat. "Akira..."
"Can we get a pet?"
Akira winced noticeably. "No."
"Why not?" Hikaru persisted.
"We've been over this before. We don't have room."
"Okay." Hikaru sighed.
Akira's attention diverted to the door, the distinct sound of whimpering catching his ear.
"What was that?"
"Nothing," Hikaru blurted, nervously heading towards the kitchen. "I'm starving. Want a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich?"
