L: "I love you, ____." You startled in your seat next to him, eyes fixing on him in surprise. "I— What?" He turned to face you, his eyes as blank as they normally were, but he repeated the words. You shook your head, sending your hair into your eyes, and smiled widely. "I love you too!" He looked relieved for just a moment before he said, "I know. I’ve known for a while. You weren’t hiding it very well." You rolled your eyes and sighed. "Damn detective."
Mello: He was unusually quiet the past few days, no random angry outbursts or snarky comments. You thought he was going to break it off, so you were preparing yourself for that. Then one night when you were getting ready for bed, he dropped a bombshell on you. “____, I love you.” You froze, looking over at him to make sure he was serious, before bursting into relieved laughter. Of course, he didn’t see it that way and stood up, ready to burst at the seams with anger. You lunged at him, wrapping your arms around him and pushing him onto the bed and said, “I thought you were going to— Nevermind. I love you too, Mello!”
Near: “I love you.” You didn’t skip a beat, turning around and throwing your arms around him, internally squealing with happiness. He looked surprised, a light blush painting his pale skin as he wrapped his arms around you, hiding his face in your shoulder. It wasn’t something he had meant to say, it had just slipped out in the heat of the moment. He was relieved at your reaction, though, so he figured it wouldn’t be too bad. “I love you too, Near!” Scratch that. He felt as if his face was going to burst into flames.
