You wear glasses? (For the prompt thing 🙂)
Set new boyfriends era.
Aaron woke up, feeling the mattress dipped on the other side. He wasn’t quite used to sharing his bed with someone yet, and he smiled when he thought of Robert. Things were relatively new, but going so good. He opened his eyes, then frowned. Robert had a pair of glasses on, flicking through the paper in bed.
“You wear glasses?”
“Oh. Morning,” Robert said, taking said glasses off rather quickly. “I er… They’re reading glasses, I don’t usually wear them, I…”
“You’re embarrassed about wearing them?” Aaron asked, rolling over so he got closer to Robert, looking at his face. It was interesting seeing this kind of vulnerability from him. In public he was so confident, so sure of himself.
“I don’t like people knowing,” Robert admitted. “I look older with them, I just… don’t like wearing them. Usually I don’t need to, it’s only for the small print, so…” Robert took them off, resting on the bedside table.
“You look quite… I don’t know, different with them,” Aaron said. “Sexy,” he decided. Most definitely.
“Oh?” Robert asked. “I’m not sure if looking different to my usual self and being sexy at the same time is a compliment.”
“It is,” Aaron assured. “Trust me.” Robert suddenly looked interested as Aaron leaned across him and put the glasses back on Robert, being careful. “I’ll show you just how sexy I find it.”
“I like the sound of that.” And for the next hour, Robert didn’t mind that he needed reading glasses.
