“The first thing that strikes Shiro is the shape of him - small compared to the men around him, long and slender, while still finely muscled. A sharp jaw coming to a point at his chin, dark hair, long enough that he can pull it back into a small ponytail, leaving a mess of pieces at the front that hide his eyes from Shiro. He has a sudden, strong urge to get closer, brush up that curtain of bangs so he can get a look.”
When Shiro’s car breaks down, he thinks his day is ruined, but then he meets a beautiful mechanic tending to a row of perfect roses, and his heart says otherwise.
The first time Shiro kissed Keith, it was after he fell off his bike. He'd been pedaling as fast as he could, trying to keep up with Shiro's longer legs, when his front wheel hit a rock and sent him spinning out.
Keith sniffed, trying to ignore the way his eyes were stinging. Shiro jumped off his bike and ran over. "Oh no! Want me to kiss it better?"
Keith blinked up at him. "Huh?"
"Kiss it better? My Mom does it for Ryou all the time!"
And before Keith could answer Shiro ducked down and kissed his skinned knee.
Or, a childhood tradition that they eventually outgrow... or not.

Keith is dreading an evening with the Holts' alpha cousin, who's too snobby to spare a word for an Omega with only 1,000 pounds a year. But an invitation to join the Holts on a visit to his house to use his new telescope is too good to resist, and Keith discovers there might be more to Shiro than he expected.
