Request from ~PaniniAlchemist!
It was a ridiculously hot summer day that Wednesday. Despite Feliciano’s attempts to make you go out under the sun and play, you definitely stood your ground to just stay at home and cool down. Now here you are, savoring the cold aircon blasting throughout the living room while reading a nice novel you just bought a week before.
While you were reading halfway through, you heard someone came in and took a seat on the opposite couch. You lifted your gaze from the book and saw that it was only Ludwig, wearing only his surfboard shorts and he was heavily perspiring. You blushed upon seeing it and you immediately tucked your eyes inside the confines of the printed letters. Gosh, this is just embarrassing, you thought.
“(name), can you please get me a dry towel and something cold to drink?” you jumped a bit in your place when you heard Ludwig said that to you. “O-Of course, just wait a minute okay?” you laid the book wide open on the coffee table and fled the living room while trying to avoid looking at the well-built body of the German.
You headed to the cabinet and pulled out some few towels and hung them over your shoulders. Next, you went to the kitchen and pulled out two tall glasses from the dishwasher and poured some iced tea. You then returned to the living room where you saw Ludwig was reading a book he got from the pile.
Feeling the blush return to your cheeks, you hastily put down the two drinks from the table and draped the towel over Ludwig’s arched back which hopefully, covered his torso for the meantime. Without looking up from his reading, he mouthed a “Danke” and you nodded in acknowledgement.
You settled yourself back in your spot on the opposite couch and picked up your book to calm down your jittery nerves. Once you resumed reading, you finally forgot about what you saw earlier and concentrated on the story.
---- Two hours after…. ---
You managed to finish the whole novel without anymore further interruptions. When you closed the book and dumped it on the top of the pile, you noticed that Ludwig might have bored himself to sleep reading your novels. You snickered a bit at seeing his form lying on the couch and his face was covered with a book.
You stood up from your seat and went over him. You gently removed the book to prevent him from being stirred awake. You returned the book to its respective pile and kneeled beside him on the floor and studied his sleeping face.
You smiled at how angelic and calm his face can be when he’s like this. And…and you can’t help but feel that he’s so…vulnerable. And you suddenly have the nagging notion that you want to kiss him…on his soft lips…
You shook your head and slapped your cheeks for thinking such thoughts. Its bad (name)! Bad! It will only look like you are taking advantage of him! No, you can’t do such a thing, even if he’s like your biggest crush ever! Okay, you have two choices (name) you should calm down and retreat…or aarrghh…just do it, damn it!! After having a bit of an uphill battle with your clashing feelings, you let the latter impulse won.
You took a deep breath and steeled yourself. You cannot believe you’re seriously going to do it.
Cheeks flaring red, heart thumping wildly in your chest you started moving closer and closer towards Ludwig’s face. When your lips were just a mere centimeters apart, Ludwig’s eyes suddenly shoot open and that caused you to be startled and you backed away. “A-aahh…I’m so sorry!” you cried and clasped your hands together as if praying.
“What was that for frau? Are you really that desperate to kiss me?” you stared at Ludwig who had a smirk on his face that made you turn even redder. “F-F-Fwaahh…y-y-essss…I-I-I think…” you stuttered.
“Come here, (name)” he commanded and you obeyed. You were aiming to sit beside him on the couch, but you were pulled into his lap instead. “E-Eh? W-What are you doing?!” you squeaked. You spun your head to side to meet his dazzling blue irises. And you were almost regretful that you locked eyes with him.
Without any fair warning, Ludwig kissed you on the lips. You were caught by surprise at first but you melted into the passionate and fiery kiss that made you feel numb. After the two of you broke apart, Ludwig leaned down to your ear and licked it.
And in a seductive tone he whispered, “You didn't have to do that you know. You just have to ask me whenever you want them liebe. There’s even no need to say please”
