    Summary

    “That’s not how the English language works,” he pointed out with an amused snort, turning further towards the other boy and pressing a kiss to the corner of Simon’s eye, causing him to squeeze said eye shut with a small noise in half-hearted protest. “But you might be right about being my favourite person, at least.”

    Summary

    “Nothing. I—nothing. Where’s the damn exit??”

    Raphael failed to swallow the laughter that bubbled up in his chest and he choked out a “sorry” that didn’t sound like he actually was sorry when Simon glared at him.

    “Probably downstairs, I would assume. We’re on the second floor so I doubt there’s an exit around. At least not if you’re planning on using a door to get out of here,” he replied casually as soon as his laughter had died down and then he actually jumped a little bit, though it was more due to Simon’s short scream and not because of the person suddenly jumping out at them.

    Summary

    “It might be just a question but it’s not a simple one, love, of course it’s difficult,” she replied and her voice had that tone she had always used when he was younger and nervous about something, the one that always managed to calm him down and make him feel more relaxed.

    “It is, though. With him, anyway,” Raphael sighed, pushing the fingers of his free hand through his loose curls while his other hand was still occupied by the playful furball stretched out in his lap. “I think now I get why Alec was so all over the place.”

    Guadalupe laughed again and Raphael’s lips quirked into a small smile because it was impossible not to smile at his mama’s cheerful laughter, the warm ring and fond ring of it.

    Summary

    “You definitely look decent,” Simon commented and he couldn’t even feel embarrassed by how breathless he sounded because the stunning view of Raphael literally managed to take his breath away. “Why do I have to wear a tie and you don’t?”

    Raphael only quirked an eyebrow at him while reaching out to unfasten the tie and redo the knot from scratch. His fingers were steady and clearly knew what they were doing, easily sliding the silky material of the tie into a perfect knot before smoothing it down over the almost black looking dark blue of the shirt Simon was wearing.

    “Because I say so.”

    Summary

    There was a slight possibility that his over-dramatic antics and the slight spam with messages had something to do with Raphael not reacting to him now - not because the other was mad at him or anything but to get back at him for being a nuisance. Simon sighed and grimaced before emptying his glass, putting the phone back into his pocket and placing the glass in the sink. He shuffled back into the living room, pushing the sliding door to the kitchen halfway shut behind him and then heading into the hallway to check if Raphael really wasn’t home.

    Summary

    Raphael took a deep breath before he silently walked closer to the living room, carefully nudging the door further open - he was pretty sure they had closed all the doors before leaving - and at first he saw only little things that were out of place: like a few pillows from the couch lying on the floor, one even on the coffee table, and one of Simon's comics looked a little bit torn where it was lying in the middle of the room as well. He frowned, his heart still pounding a little bit faster before he finally spotted the culprit of the slight mess and a startled laugh escaped his throat.

    "What? What is it??" Simon whispered where he was still in the hallway, clearly not having dared to enter the apartment as well and with his phone in hand, ready to call the authorities if someone popped up to maul them.

    Summary

    “When we decided to take a vacation I didn’t exactly picture us at the beach with pink molds, building a sand castle,” Raphael mentioned and nudges one of said molds in the shape of a starfish with the tip of his finger, watching his lover pick up another one that looked like an actual tower for a castle and scooping some of the wetter sand into it from the hole they had already dug.

    “You should always be prepared for the unexpected and I still think it’s beyond hilarious that the little girl offered us her moulds to build a sandcastle with as thanks for us keeping an eye on her family’s stuff while they’re in the water.”

    Raphael hummed and couldn’t help but smile when he thought about his lover’s baffled expression and his quickly following ecstatic reaction when he had decided that, yes, they had to build an actual sandcastle now. It didn’t exactly go too well, despite already having carried some water towards their small construction site with the just-as-pink bucket of the little girl.

    Summary

    'You can be a terrible person if you want to but that's not what I meant. I'm really glad he asked you and that you clearly helped him out. Thank you.' Magnus was clearly smiling and the softness in his voice caused Raphael's heart to swell a little with affection for his best friend.

    "No need to thank me. It wasn't exactly difficult to help him because I actually like the guy. And it was for you so..." Raphael shrugged slightly, trailing off a little awkwardly and grimacing when Magnus's laughter rang through the line. The other thanked him again and actually added an 'I love you' when he said his goodbyes. Raphael didn't get a chance to reply before the line went dead and he placed his phone back on the coffee table with a huff.

    Summary

    Alec blinked at him and he seemed a little surprised before his lips curled into an amused smile that caused Raphael to frown.

    "This was a slightly better speech than go for it," the other chuckled and Raphael huffed softly, pressing his lips to the rim of his mug to take a careful sip of the hot beverage. Alec had shown up here all dramatic with this "We have to talk" attitude and something akin to panic in his eyes just because of this. Raphael wondered if the other had always been this dramatic or if Magnus had simply rubbed off on him. Surely it was the latter...

    Summary

    "Buenos dias," Simon mumbled against his neck, arms tightening around Raphael's waist and warm body pressing against his back. He would probably never grow tired of waking up like this, with Simon wrapped around him like a koala and their legs entangled, wrapped up in the warmth of their shared body heat under the blanket. Raphael only hummed in reply, too comfortable and lazy to actually form words and Simon's chuckle caused his lips to curl into a fond smile.

    "So, how was the first night in the new apartment?" Simon asked, as mere whisper against his skin that was soon peppered with some more feathery kisses and Raphael tilted his head a little to give his lover better access to his sleep-warm skin, a content sigh escaping his lips.

    Summary

    "I told you, it's fine. I'm doing very good, actually. There are only a few things I really have to learn and there's still plenty of time for that. Also, I have quite the smart boyfriend who I know will help me with learning the rest of the stuff I need." Raphael winked playfully at his lover who snorted, rolling his eyes fondly before leaning closer to press a sweet kiss to the younger boy's cheek.

    "Okay, okay. I got it. There's nothing to worry about because your absolutely amazing, stunning boyfriend takes good care of you," Simon sighed and pressed a hand against his own chest dramatically.

    "Would you stop complimenting yourself? I never said that you were stunning."

    Simon glared at him and pouted, causing Raphael to start laughing and since he had already put down the pen he stole a gentle kiss from his lover's plush lips that immediately responded by pressing back against his. He relaxed and didn't even pay attention to the pen slipping from his grasp before his hand found its way to Simon's neck, fingers playfully digging into the soft hair at the nape of his lover's neck to pull him a little closer.

    Summary

    "I thought we didn't want to make a big deal and yet here you are, cooking an amazing smelling dinner," Simon said and he tried to sound accusing but all of this was way too adorable and he really didn't mind any of it. Though, he did feel bad for not thinking of something like this himself.

    "Like you said, I only cooked dinner, that's not making a big deal. No worries, I didn't get a present - only a few candles for the table," Raphael replied with a chuckle and lowered the temperature of the stove before turning around to face his boyfriend with an adorable smile tugging at the corners of his full lips, the faintest hint of a pinkish blush still high on his cheeks.

    "Still, now I feel bad for not doing at least a small thing," Simon pouted but couldn't hold back his smile any longer when Raphael playfully bumped the tip of his nose against his.

    Summary

    He glanced across the room to the small table in the nook of the kitchen where one chair was currently occupied by his boyfriend who had his own assortment of learning material neatly piled up on the part of the table where he was currently writing something down.

    Simon barely managed to suppress the sigh that was trying to crawl out of the back of his throat. He had been so happy when Raphael had decided on getting his GED and when the application for evening school had gone through pretty quickly. It was the middle of March now and his lover was visiting the evening school for about three weeks now and he had seemed to enjoy it at first but, of course, the stress of juggling it together with his job in the coffee shop had quickly caught up to him. Raphael was stubborn and had refused to cut back on the hours he worked in the café. So now he spent the evening of every weekday at school and five days of the week working in the coffee shop, the rest of the time mostly consisted of learning because he had to get back into the material which took a little more effort in the beginning.

    Summary

    "Okay, there it is again, the frowny face. I told myself not to ask and wait until you talk to me on your own accord but...what's going on? Something is bothering you lately and if it's something I did--"

    "Dios mío, Simon, you didn't do anything. It has nothing to do with you, don't worry, idiota. It's just something Magnus said but...it's nothing," he dismissed with a shrug, grabbing the mug his boyfriend had just cleaned and starting to dry it off. He could feel Simon staring at him, followed by a sigh and the sponge dropping into the dishwater before the other dried his hands off on his thighs instead of grabbing the second towel.

    "Come on, tell me about it. It can't be nothing if it's clearly on your mind so often," Simon pleaded softly, reaching out to take the mug and towel from his boyfriend's hand, put them down on the countertop and curl his fingers around Raphael's hands to tug him into the living area and sit down on the bed instead of the more uncomfortable chairs at the tiny kitchen table.

    "Really, it's nothing, bebé," he sighed but his fingers intertwined with Simon's automatically, squeezing them gently while his thumb brushed the back of the other's hand absently.

    Summary

    "You're so ridiculous. How did you manage to get drunk already?" Raphael laughed at the other's indignant sound when he poked his lover again. Simon clumsily curled his fingers around the other's wrist to prevent him from full on tickling him but his coordination was already suffering from the effect of the alcohol and Raphael's laughter didn't help either.

    "Stop laughing at me!"

    "I would never dare to laugh at you, cariño," Raphael replied with the most convincing innocent smile he could muster. While Simon kept one of his hands immobile, he simply used the other to push his lover's sweater upwards and then pressed his lips to the pale skin he revealed. Simon squeaked in surprise and swatted the younger boy's head, only to feel teeth scrape his soft skin teasingly, causing a shudder to run down his spine.

    Summary

    For tonight, they had simply started sending each other text messages and photos to still kind of share their celebrations, even if they couldn't be physically together right now. Raphael had sent him a video of his little brothers butchering a Spanish version of Silent Night - it took Simon almost half of the song to realise why the wonky singing (that was putting it very nicely, though) had sounded kind of familiar. Admittedly, Luke was the one who asked why these kids seemed to be on a mission to kill one of the most popular Christmas songs that Simon had realised what it was supposed to be. He hoped the boys would get a little better at singing when they got older, otherwise, he would be really worried about the health of everyone's hearing.

    Summary

    "You're up before nine at the weekend and in a good mood this early? Who are you and what have you done to Simon?" Raphael's still sleep-rough, yet amused voice pulled him back to reality and Simon's eyes snapped open - he hadn't even noticed closing them. So Raphael basically just caught him standing in the kitchen, with a glass of orange juice in his hand, eyes closed and a stupid smile on his face. Great. Though it wasn't the first time something like this happened and it would probably only happen more often when they actually lived together.

    "Wow, really? And who are you, then, because I don't remember my boyfriend ever being funny," Simon replied and for a brief second he thought it was a witty reply but he realised his mistake even before the other laughed softly.

    "Oh, so you're finally admitting that I'm funny~," Raphael exclaimed a little too gleefully and Simon grimaced with a sigh. Yeah, his brain was definitely still half asleep.

    "No, you're not."

    Summary

    "That's all the more reason to talk to him. You can't just assume his reaction and make your decision based on this assumption. Tell him about your insecurities instead of trying to avoid the topic. If you want to move in with him, you should find out what he wants and then decide together. And believe me, I know it's scary at first to even consider this step but it's the right decision - I see the way you look at him and talk about him."

    Raphael scrunched up his face sceptically and shrugged a little. Magnus did have a point, admittedly. He loved Simon so much that it was almost overwhelming sometimes and his boyfriend had given him absolutely no reason to expect rejection concerning the moving in together but for some reason, he was still insecure about it. This was Raphael's first relationship, after all.

    "You're probably right," he admitted with a little shrug and tilted his head with a frown when Magnus snorted softly.
