“Is there anything you want to tell me?”
Magnus was lying at the door frame, looking at his boyfriend, who was deeply involved with a book he was reading. He looked up, concerned.
“What? No,” Alec answered, but he wasn’t looking like he was clueless, Magnus could perfectly see it. That’s why he didn’t drop the subject, even though it wasn’t that important. He was just curious. “Something happened?”
“No, it’s just that I can’t find my eyeliner,” he answered. “Do you know anything about this, Alexander?”
There, he thought, when Alec closed his book. He was looking like he had seen a ghost or something even scarier. Magnus could tell that he’s fighting with his thoughts and he can’t really say what he wants to say, so he gave him time.
“So…” he began. “There’s a possibility, that… I used it? And forgot to put it in right place? Or… Or something like that.”
Warlock suspected it, to be honest. He knew how Alec was looking at him when he was applying his makeup. He suggested once or twice that his boyfriend could try it too, but he refused every time, so Magnus decided to not push on him. It wasn’t necessary.
“Don’t be mad at me, please. I should ask or something, I know, but…”
“No, darling, stop,” Magnus said, walking to the bed. He sat next to Alec, smiling softly. “There’s nothing wrong with that. What’s mine it’s yours and it’s even not about that you took that without asking me first. I don’t want you to feel ashamed of what you want.”
For a minute Alec was looking like he was about to explode because of his embarrassment, but now he was calmer. He put his book away, his eyes only for Magnus.
“I know, but… Well, it doesn’t matter, anyway. I suck at it.” he laughed, but Magnus wasn’t laughing with him. He really wanted his boyfriend to feel comfortable, not like he was not supposed to do something because he wasn’t perfect at it.
“No, of course, it matters, Alexander,” he answered. “Look, I can teach you some tricks if you want? If you won’t feel good, we can stop, but I think it can be fun, what do you say?”
“Uh, why not?” Alec smiled.
Magnus smiled too and then kissed his beautiful, giant dork.
