Ooh "If I had a star for every time you brightened my day, I'd have a galaxy in my hand" with keith pls
More self-indulgent trash for my birthday I hope you like it. Fair warning if Keith ever said this to me I would melt. I would be gone.
God, I love Keith. Tbh I just want Keith for my birthday, that’s all. I’ll be fine with Keith.
Your giggle rings through the training hall, Keith’s deep chuckle echoing behind it. Laying beside Keith, his arm underneath you, the both of you look up to the ceiling where the projection of foreign constellations decorates the room.
“Okay, so what should we name this one?” You point up and expand the image so Keith knows which one you’re talking about. He takes a few seconds to think about it, but finally decides, “caterpillar.”
You sputter once again, and you shake your head through your laughter. “Come on, Keith–”
“I’m serious! It looks like a caterpillar!” He says, pointing out the little legs, and the elongated body.
You sigh and yield to his statement. “Fine, but it has to sound more scientific than that! Like Caterious Pillarion or something.”
“Cater-o Pillar-o.” You snort and laugh once again, “okay, you win. Catero Pillaro it is. Put it down in the history books kids, Keith Kogane is a master at naming stars.” Rolling onto your stomach, you prop yourself up on your elbows and face your boyfriend. Keith turns his eyes to you, a faint smile on his face. He brings his hand up to smooth out your hair that’s been mussed from laying down.
A comfortable silence falls upon the both of you, the stars rotating around you thanks to the projector. You smile at Keith, and take his hand, turning his palm to you to kiss it.
“You know, [y/n]… If I had a star for every time you brightened my day, I’d have a galaxy in my hand.” You stop in surprise, heat creeping up your neck, spreading to your ears and cheeks. He smiles at you, cupping your face. He props himself up on an elbow so he can lean forward, and capture your lips.
“Keith Kogane, you… dork.” He chuckles, coaxing you to lay down with him once more.
“Only because you’ve made me one.”
