- 51 - “I’m your husband. It’s my job.”
You were really glad, that your job was more loose. Of course you still had to work hard, but your boss often allowed to come later to work or work from home. Just at the end of the month, you had to present the results he wanted. And today was the day you had to present your work.
When you woke up, Yongguk was already gone, leaving his obligatory message pinned onto the fridge. ‘Good Morning, jagi. I hope you slept well. I’m already at the studio.’ You quickly made yourself a coffee, before changing out of your - Yongguks - sleeping shirt and throwing on proper clothes.
And of course everything had to go wrong today. Your co-worker ran into you, begging you to help her with the software update she had to do and she is stuck and doesn’t know what to do anymore. You were pretty good with that stuff, so you quickly helped her out. You hurried to your meeting, only to find out your boss came even later than you were. During your talk one of the listeners spontaneously decided it would be a good idea to vomit on the table. After a doctor was called for her, you quickly finished your talk, only wanting to get home now, but your boss had other plans. He called you into his office and told you, that you will manage the newest upcoming project. You were really happy about that, but that also meant spending even more hours working at home and at the company.
When you finally got home, Yongguk was already there, playing around in the living room with Tigger. He greeted you excitedly, but you only walked into the bedroom and wanted to change out of your uncomfortable clothes. Meanwhile Yongguk got up and sneaked up behind you, hugging your waist and resting his head on your shoulder.
“Baby, why do you ignore me?” By now you knew him long enough to know, that he would pull his signature pouting face. You leaned into his touch before speaking up. “I’m not ignoring you, Gukkie.” Yongguk loosened his grip and carefully turned you around, so that you were facing him. “What’s wrong? You sound tired.”
“That’s because I am.”, you answered, giving him a sad laugh. Yongguk picked you up and carried you the small way over to the bed, placing you down on it, before climbing in behind you. You turned yourself over, now facing your smiling husband. You scooted closer to him, snuggling into his chest and immediately he locked his arms around you. “Now tell me what happened.”
“The day started out pretty good. I just wanted to hold that stupid talk I prepared for so long. I just wanted to go, when my co-worker suddenly came to me. She had a problem with the new software update, so I quickly had to help her out.” You made a quick talking pause and Yongguk just looked at you, nodding with his head. “I was already late, but when I turned up, my boss wasn’t even there. He came 5 minutes after me. In the middle of my talk, one of the listeners in the back decided to vomit on the table.” Yongguk pulled a disgusted face at your statement. “After this torture my talk finally ended at some point, but then my boss called me into his office. He picked me to manage the upcoming project. I’m happy about it, but that also means I have to spend even more time at work.” Yongguk let you talk all that time, only speaking up now since you are finished. “I’m sorry, jagi. You had to go through all of this today. Wait here.” He unlocked his arms from you and you whined at this loss, while he only chuckled. “Don’t worry, baby. I will be back soon.” With that he disappeared into the bathroom.
“You really fell asleep in the few minutes I was away, hm?”, Yongguk asked. You hid yourself in your pillow, causing him to chuckle. “Cmon, get up or the water will get cold.” You lifted your head a little and watched at your smiling husband. That gummy smile you fell in love with. “But I’m comfy right now.”, you answered, head falling back again. Yongguk walked over to you and easily lifted you up in his arms. “Just admit it. You want my carrying service.”
He carried you into the bathroom, before placing you down again and giving you a quick kiss, ready to leave.
“Aren’t you staying?”, you asked.
“No, I’m not. I’m going to answer work mails.” This time it was your turn to make a pouting face, causing Yongguk to chuckle. “Baby, I’m not the one needing a bath now. I promise, when you are finished we can cuddle.”
You eyed him suspiciously. “Really?” He nodded. “Now get going or we have less time to cuddle. New clothes are on the bed.” He already was out of the door, when you called him back.
“Yes?”, he asked, sticking his head through the door.
“You are the best.”, you told him, geniually meaning it, causing him to smile once more. “I know.”
The bath really was relaxing and it helped with the pain in your muscles. Your breathing got a little slower and you nearly passed out again, if Tigger wouldn’t have barked at something, followed by Yongguk scolding him for acting up. You got out of your bath and quickly wrapped a towel around yourself, drying your hair and applying body lotion, before walking into the bedroom where Yongguk placed clothes for you. You changed into the comfortable sweatpants and one of his hoodies, before joining him on the sofa. After seeing you he immediately placed his Mac away, opening his arms wide, signaling for you to curl up on him.
“Feeling better now?”, he asked, softly going through your hair.
“Yes.”, you answered, nodding against his chest. “But I have to watch out or I will fall asleep again.”
You lied like that in silence for some time, simply enjoying each others presence. Yongguk started to draw soft circle son your skin with his thumb, while you listened to his calming heartbeat. Until you remembered something.
“Shit. I have to cook something.” You wanted to get up, but Yongguk held you in place. “I can cook.”, he offered, but the both of you knew how it would end. “Yongguk, I really appreciate your offer, but we both know you can’t cook. Like at all.” He just laughed at your statement, finally letting you get up. You were already in the kitchen, when you face palmed yourself. You forgot to go grocery shopping.
“What is it this time?”, Yongguk asked, most likely still lazing around on the sofa.
“I forgot to go grocery shopping. We need to order in.”
“Jagi, just check the fridge. If you still want to order in then, it’s okay.”
Thinking he is fooling you, you don’t expect much when you open the fridge, but to your surprise, the fridge is full with new food. He must have went shopping. You went back to the living room and hugged him from behind. “Gukkie, why did you do all that?”
“I’m your husband. It’s my job.”, he answered, smiling sweetly. “Now cooking or delivery?”
