The mint haired boy felt relief when he opened his eyes and saw Ira’s face so close to his own. The bodies of the two were still tangled, their legs twined together and one of Ira’s arms slung over Bunny’s waist, while Bunny’s hands held against Ira’s chest. Bunny was surprised Ira was still sleeping, the dark haired male always seemed to wake up before the smaller of the two. He must have been truly exhausted.
Especially since Bunny knew Ira had fallen asleep before him; the mint haired boy had stayed up watching Ira as he slept. He wasn’t sure if his inability to sleep and desire to keep looking at Ira had stemmed from the stress of his emotional state, the gnawing anxiety that this situation was just a vivid fantasy he was having, or the overwhelming affection and ease looking at Ira had filled him with. Bunny carefully reached one of his hands up and brushed some of the navy strands of Ira’s hair which had fallen over his face. Even asleep he still looked tired and Bunny would hate to wake him.
But as that thought crossed his mind, he became aware of the beginnings of daybreak which were slowly illuminating the room. Would it really be alright for Ira to continue sleeping? Didn’t he need to wake up and open the café downstairs? Not that Bunny really wanted him to wake up and leave, but it probably wasn’t okay for him to monopolize Ira this way.
Struggling with whether or not to wake up Ira, Bunny missed the sounds of heavy footsteps approaching Ira’s bedroom. Bunny only registered someone was nearby when he heard a voice, [b [#730099 “Hey Ira!”]] Bunny didn’t place the voice immediately but recognized the person when the door to Ira’s room was violently thrown open and the dark skinned man with dreadlocks who worked in the restaurant was revealed. Bunny jolted up from the bed into a sitting position with the loud noise but the man wasn’t actually looking at the room yet. His head was turned like he was actually speaking to someone behind him rather than the man whose room this was. [b [#730099 “Are you okay, you weren’t downstairs so I can to check up,”]] The man’s words slowly fell off as he turned his head and saw the mint haired boy staring back at him, [b [#730099 “on you.”]] Ira, for his part, was sitting up groggily, still in the haze of sleep.
[b [#730099 “Oh, shit, my bad,”]] The man said as he looked at both Ira and Bunny awkwardly. Clearing his throat, he jerked a hand over his shoulder, point behind him with his thumb, [b [#730099 “I’m gonna go. Sorry ‘bout that. You guys, uh, take it easy?”]] Ira’s employee hardly seemed to know what he was saying at this point. As the hulking man backed out and slowly closed the door, in a much gentler manner than he had opened it, Bunny felt his face heat up with embarrassment. The mint haired boy quickly covered his face with his hands as the feeling washed over him and his body curled up until he could rest his head against his knees in a brace position.
Leah had charged in on him while he was sleeping more than once but it had never felt embarrassing like this. Was it because it was someone other than Leah? No, that probably wasn’t right, Bae had woken him up a few times before when they’d traveled together for work. No, this embarrassment was probably more because he was in Ira’s bed, with Ira no less, when the man barged in. Bunny wanted to burrow away in the blankets so he wouldn’t have to face this situation but that would mean uncurling from his current position which was hiding his flushed face. Not removing his hands from his face, he spoke to Ira, [b [#60B9D6 “Don’t you have to go to work?”]] That had been why the man had come, right? Because Ira was in bed instead of in the restaurant. Bunny didn’t want Ira to leave but he also didn’t want to make Ira miss work.]]]
