Drabble Prompt: Isak and Even Sitting in a tree...
This work of crack fluff mess can only be blamed on @softestisak who has been hounding me about it for like 2 weeks. Here you go, dearest :P
(now i really wish I could draw because I want the two of them up in a tree more than life)
If there was ever one thing Isak could say about Even Bech Naesheim, it was that he was never boring.
“What’s the weather like down there?”
And Isak is dumbstruck with his hand over his eyes to block the sun but even the bright rays aren’t doing anything to cloud the sight in front of him.
Isak chokes out something of a laugh. “What the fuck are you doing?”
Even leans back, feet dangling unassumingly as his back hits the trunk of a giant oak tree. Only Even is not a normal person who would just oh-so-casually be sitting in front of the tree.
He has to be the idiot who climbs the sucker. Who climbed the tree and is now sitting contentedly on a branch a good 10 feet up from the grass, looking like he hadn’t a care in the world.
That was Even Bech Naesheim.
“When I got your text, I was assuming a picnic or maybe that you were going to sketch something out here.”
“Ah Isak,” Even tilts his head back and closes his eyes for a few gentle moments. When he opens them again- well he has never looked so free, “You should know by now to expect the unexpected.”
“Are you stuck?”
Even laughs, but doesn’t reply.
What he does do, however, is kick his shoe at Isak; nearly nailing him the chest (thank god for quick reflexes,) Isak holds up the offending shoe in victory.
Even pats the spot next to him, “Let’s go.”
“What?” Isak looks around, “Me? Up there? No?”
“’Why not,’ he asks,” Isak says, pitching his voice lowly, “Um- because I don’t want to die?”
“Come on, baby. If I can get up here so can you.” Even pauses and the corners of his mouth tilt up, “Unless you’re too scared?”
Isak rolls his eyes, “No- I know what you’re doing. You’re trying to psych me out; make me feel like I want to go up there to prove something.”
“Oh,” Even leans his head back and shuts his eyes again, pulling down a pair of Isak’s sunglasses down from the crown of his head, “Suit yourself down there.”
Isak stands there for approximately a minute and a half.
“Fuck.” And he throws his backpack down, making for the trunk of the tree. The climb isn’t too bad; really it only takes like five moves maximum before he’s slinging himself onto the same branch.
Even grins and slides the sunglasses back up, “Look at you.”
“I’m going to die,” Isak looks down and shuts his eyes, “Can this branch hold us?”
“I guess we’ll find out.”
“That’s comforting.” Isak takes a breath and leans back against the trunk, turning his head ever so slightly to look at his boyfriend, “Halla. Why are we in a tree?”
Even shrugs, “I planned a picnic- the food is down there on the other side-
“I knew it.”
“-but then I just wanted to feel like I was above the ground for a little while. It’s weird to explain.”
Isak lets out a small puff of air through his nose, “Not it’s not. Makes sense.”
“It does, doesn’t it?”
Isak scooted over the tiniest bit, barely holding in undignified squeaks when the branch shakes a bit with effort, but finally stops when his thing is pressed firmly up against Even’s.
Even glances at Isak’s face. “Hi.”
And then something passes over his face and he’s laughing hard enough to shake the surrounding branches. Isak clamps down on the trunk, “What the fuck?”
“Sorry, sorry,” Even inhales, “I just though- you know that children’s song? The one about kissing in a tree?”
Isak looks at him like he’s crazy, “What?”
“You know,” Even hums, “Isak and Even sitting in a tree…”
He trails off and waits for Isak to fill in the blanks…
“Oh that one,” Isak laughs a bit too, stopping when the branch moves again, “K- I- S-S-I-N-G.”
Even’s eyes are bright as he reaches out a hand to smooth down Isak’s cheek, before cupping the back of his neck and pulling him in a bit. Just enough to brush his lips across Isak’s.
When he pulls back, Isak is soft and smiley. “Wasn’t that just adorable? Eskild would be melting. We should Instagram this.”
