Fights were never easy and sometimes, you just needed a little bit of comfort, even if it was something small, like sweet latte art.

Murasakibara never thought much of it but his presence in your life became somewhat of a routine. It wasn’t as if he chatted with you twenty four-seven but you shared a few hi’s here and there and acknowledgements whenever you pass by each other in the streets. He worked as a barista and you were a constant customer who ordered the same latte every time you came around. You were sweet to a certain extent, always polite, and one time, you even helped him out when a customer was being difficult.
Perhaps he was growing fond of you, much too fond for his liking. Perhaps it was merely his imagination.
He hoped it was because he wasn’t planning on falling for someone with a boyfriend anytime soon.
You were attached by the hip with your boyfriend. He was awesome and funny but he wasn’t anything special. Of course, the fact that you’ve been going out for a few months now only encouraged people to think otherwise. You knew that he probably wasn’t the one but he felt safe at that moment. He was a good man and you liked him.
Murasakibara worked at the counter, handling cashier duties but he was more often assigned to coffee. He was the best coffeemaker in the store after all and he was pretty skilled in making latte art as well. His eyes often found you amidst in the crowd. You were wrapped in his arms, laughing to whatever he was saying. During these days, Murasakibara felt a twinge of jealousy in his heart.
However, one day, as he stood there in front of the cashier, he noticed that your eyes were red and puffy. He wanted to ask you why you were crying but he felt bad. After taking your money and giving you your change, he decided that he should be making your coffee and switched with his friend.
