Each year was the same when it came to your birthday. You stayed at home, ate loads of chocolate and watched some films by yourself. You werent one for partying or really celebrating anything for that matter. Your friends ended up giving up with partying with you. They still came by and gave you gifts and warm birthday hugs. That was it. They though you lived and breath in your home. The crazy cat lady Dante once teased you. Saying how you will grow old and live with fifty cats.
Today you decided to go for a wonder into the city. It had been a while since you brought anything nice for yourself. Dante never brought you anything. He was always out busy do his own thing. When he came home, he wanted either food or sex. Therefore, you gave him one or the other.
Wandering through the city, you found all these nice clothes and jewellery you could get yourself. Maybe show off to Dante. Yet he always said he preferred your clothes on his bedroom floor. You ended up not buying much in the end. Nevertheless, what you got you loved and would last you ages.
You came home, the house felt different as you entered. The air was fresh the windows where cleaned, there was no rubbish on the floor. You were dreading what would wait when you walked into the living room. Slowly entering, you found the room spotless. In fact, the whole house was clean. Your jaw could have hit the floor from what went on in here.
Did Dante do this?
On the coffee table. You saw a bunch of flowers. Inside them was a note. Hey! Surprise! Yeah I do clean. Only for you! See you later! Gob-smacked, you smiled in glee. Guess Dante was sweet and had a heart after all.
You ran up stairs, throwing your clothes everywhere. That little voice in the back of your head was singing again. Dante was going to take you out some place nice Hopefully not a club. He knows I hate them, You mumbled with you headed deep in your wardrobe
Hours passed, you had a nice warm bath. You straightened your hair. It was getting very long now. You knew you would need a cut soon. You found a nice tight dress to wear, it was smart yet causal. Dante never understood that phase when you told him about it. He simply relied. I dont mind what you where, its going to end up o my bedroom floor anyway.
Downstairs, you heard Dante come home. He did his usually routine. Go to the kitchen and see if there was anything to eat. You herd him grunt. That gave you the hint. Dante is hungry
We havent got any food! He shouted up the stairs. You sighed. Walking down stairs, knowing you relaxation time was over. You entered the living room. When Dante saw you, there was a little twinkle in his eyes. Wow! You look great! He smiled.
A little embarrassed you asked. Not too much is it?
Why are we going somewhere? He asked, looking puzzled. You felt something snap in your brain. Your wasnt sure if it was sadness or anger. Dante
please tell me your joking! You voice was wavering. Dantes joke clearly didnt go to plan. He almost made you cry.
Oh bugger! Babe! No! Shit
Im an asshole
I was joking! Quickly Dante walked close to you, holding your hands. Gently he kissed you forehead. Happy birthday
and yes! I got plans
sorry for upsetting you!
Dante did have plans. You drove out to the beach. He knew you liked it there. Because of how busy Dante has been lately. You two never had a chance to do something together, and that was peaceful.
The sun was setting, sending a warm glow across the sky. The air was Luke warm and there was no breeze.
I know its not great. But I try. Smiling at him, you replied. Its perfect. And I couldnt think of spending it with anyone else but you. You hands rested on his cheek. Im such a sore loser.
Why say that?
Because Ive never done anything good for you.
I know what your going to be like when you get back from demon hunting. Tired. Grumpy, maybe even needy. Dante grinned. But I am not going to leave you
even if you throw me on the other side of the world.
Youre starting to sound cheesy. And I thought that was my job.
You laughed, Dante laughed Along with you. You cant be cheesy. Thats not your style
I guess you can be sweet.
Sweet. So not sexy? He winked. Yes! Of course, you can. Im just saying
He waited for the end of your sentence. You looked onwards to the sea. You felt Dantes fingers lace with yours, he gently squeezed. A smile rose to your lips. Thank you Dante
Shouldnt I be thanking you?
Because I saved your life?
Yes! I thought Id died and gone to heaven. Hell! Im glade I was still alive. Other wise I would never have had a chance to be here with you.
Here comes the cheesiness from Dante! You giggled.
Come on. At least Im trying here.
Thats a good enough for me
You looked back into his eyes. For a moment, the whole world stopped moving. You only thought it was you two in the whole of the planet. Dantes hand cupped your face. Gentle touching your cheeks. You both leaned into it. His lips were soft and warm. He was ever so gentle with you. You may have been human, But You knew you werent made of china.
Happy birthday. He whispered into your ear. You smiled in glee. Holding him tight in your arms. His head buried into you hair, taking a big sniff. You giggled, finding his action funny. You smell nice. hHe muffled into your hair.
I always smell nice silly.
For the rest of the afternoon, as the sun was setting down, you walked around, talked and relaxed. Dante was glade he made this happen. He needed a break from demons and fighting. Do you want to go home now
you look tired? Dante asked, turning to face you. You yawned, he smiled at that. Ill take that as a yes then.
As Dante carried you back to the car he said. Well, this is a first.
Im not drunk.
I like it when youre not drunk
Because Im such a sweet person.
Because youre sexy
You laughed. Dante chuckled as he helped you in the car. He was being so sweet with you. You didnt ever see him this kind before. This was a completely new side to him.
Driving back, your eyes felt heavy. Youd been up for hours. All that walking across the beach just wiped the rest of your energy out.
Dante kept an eye on you as he was driving back. Watching you slowly fall asleep beside him. He awed at the sight. He loved watching you sleep. It was to him, the cutest thing ever.
Once home Dante carried your sleeping body up to the bedroom. There, he tucked you in the covers. Dante
Yes? You didnt answer. Little squeaks escaped your lips. It was almost as if you was dreaming about him, Dante
You mumbled again.
Dante, being intrigued, rested his hand over your face. A faint smile grew on you face.
Smiling at you being even more adorable. Dante tucked under the covers with you. Cuddling up close. You turned around. Burring you head into his neck. Thank you Dante
You mumbled. For what?
Dante waited for the rest of those words. However, looking down to your face, you fallen back to sleep. Smiling, Dante replied. I love you too
