Monsters

PG, 200 words, daddies!klaine and warm milk.

“Alice was seeing monsters again,” Blaine sighs, as he returns to bed and tucks himself under the covers with Kurt.

“Oh no, should I go check on her?”

“No, no need. She seems to have calmed down,” Blaine replies with a yawn, “She’s asleep now.”

“What did you do?”

“I talked to her, told her that the monsters are actually kind. They only want to make her laugh, and there’s a whole documentary about it, the one we watched. And then I just got her some warm milk,” Blaine whispers.

“Warm milk, mmm…”

“I know. It’s delicious,” Blaine says with a half-laugh.

“It indeed is,” Kurt murmurs against Blaine’s ear, and Blaine could recognize that tone of voice anywhere. It’s the same Kurt uses on him in not so innocent ways to always distract him from work, but only for the best reasons.

“You want some too?”

“If it’s not much trouble,” Kurt stirs, like a kitten, and Blaine can’t help but grin.

“Only because you’re my husband,” he says, already getting out of the cozy bed, “Also because you’re a cat.”

“That I am,” Kurt purrs, and Blaine giggles.

Sugi’s adventures in Japan day 223

Yesterday I had to wake up early to head out to Himeji station where my boss was going to pick me and my co-workers up. I managed to get to the right exit by asking someone because the maps around the station area didn’t seem to be labeled with Cardinal directions and my boss wanted to meet at the East exit. Actually, come to think of it they were labeled but I couldn’t find east on the map for some reason even though I know the Kanji for all the Cardinal directions. Oh well, I asked a couple walking by and they pointed it out to me right away. My coworkers were there as well as my eccentric coworker’s wife who had been invited. There was only one coworker who wasn’t there.  My boss came a little late and drove us to the station, she was busy speaking with the others and didn’t really speak to me directly at all. I don’t particularly mind though. I spoke with my coworker’s wife, she’s very friendly and nice so we had a lot to talk about. When we got to the place, which was basically this park we took things out from the car and set up for the kids’ arrival. I did what I could when I was able to but I’m sure my boss felt like I was sitting around too much. I had to though at times because it was hot and I got light-headed. I spoke to the kids and parents a little bit but mostly spoke with my coworkers and we got to have lunch but of course it was beef and I can’t handle a lot of beef so this resulted in my stomach being quite angry with me most of the afternoon.

I did play some with the kids, we threw a Frisbee around for a little bit. The company owner was playing too so my boss can’t say I didn’t play with the kids at all because the company owner himself is witness to it lol. My boss was running around a lot so she was too busy to really mingle much but she spoke my eccentric coworker and his wife some. A lot of the kids were playing with water guns but I didn’t want to get wet so I stayed away from that area. Some time after we cleaned up from lunch they lined the kids up and blindfolded them while they all took turns smashing a watermelon with a fake wooden sword. It looked like a lot of fun and I wish I could have tried it but it was only for the kids and my eccentric coworker since this BBQ doubled as a goodbye party. Once that was done and everyone had some watermelon to eat we all gathered together for the photographer to take a piccture. At the very end my coworker gave a farewell message to the students and then we cleaned up and were on our way. After I was dropped back off at the station I didn’t want to go home yet so I had dinner and then I went to sing karaoke for 3 hours. I thought it would be more expensive since it was late but with the 3 hour pack it’s a set price until 8PM so I paid the exact same price as I would have going early. Today is my last dayy off and I’m not sure what I’ll be doing yet. My stomach is upset again, it’s been a while so I’m debating about going to the doctor just to make sure I’m ok but I haven’t decided yet.

Psalm 31:19-24
19 How abundant are the good things 

    that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all, 
    on those who take refuge in you.
20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
    from all human intrigues; 
you keep them safe in your dwelling
    from accusing tongues.

21 Praise be to the Lord, 
    for he showed me the wonders of his love 
    when I was in a city under siege. 
22 In my alarm I said,
    “I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
    when I called to you for help.

23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people! 
    The Lord preserves those who are true to him, 
    but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart, 
    all you who hope in the Lord.

365 Songs That Make Me Think of You: “Best Days of Your Life”-Kellie Pickler

“I’ll be there in the back of your mind. From the day we met to the very last night and it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days, the best days of your life. Ain’t it a shame? A shame that every time you hear my name brought up in a casual conversation you can’t think straight. And ain’t it sad? You can’t forget about what we had.”
