    Summary

    “I’m good,” TK assures him as he blows across the surface of the coffee to cool it down and Carlos watches him for a moment longer before he shakes his head and huffs a laugh.

    “What’s so funny,” TK asks, “hey.” He stretches his leg out and from where he’s sitting on the back counter, his sock covered toes just barely grace the back of Carlos’ thigh.

    “It’s nothing,” Carlos says, still shaking his head as he picks up the cutting board and uses the back of his knife to scrape cubes of zucchini and slices of mushroom into the preheated pan on the stove top. “You just look cute, that's all.”

     

    Moments, big and small, in their kitchen.
