thank you for your patience once again. Here is another one and this time I took 41-year (well, he is 43/44 in this one) old Mr. Frye to the test. I mean, he needs love, too. And he is such a handsome man and had to go through a lot.
I hope you will enjoy this piece of Fiction. I do not have any knowledge about the bathing back in Victorian England. I googled but didn’t find enough or maybe I did not dig deep enough. (I actually just googled again to not look like a complete idiot in front of you and added a few things, heh)
A happy Fryeday to all of you. I hope my english followers are all okay + their families and friends after what had happened.

Yagura smooths back his hair, frowning as strands fall loose
again a moment later.
“You look fine, boss,”
Kisame says, glancing at him in the rear view mirror.
Yagura huffs, biting back a cruel response as he crosses his
arms and leans into the plush cushioned seat, eyes going outside the window.
He ignores the way his treacherous heart rate picks up, knowing
that there is only a slim chance she’ll even be there. It’s stupid to get his
hopes up like this. Still…there’s a chance…
Yagura bites back a groan, staring at his shaking hands.
Yet, when she smiles his way, it doesn’t feel that way.
“We’re here, boss,”
Kisame says, concealing a smile as Yagura takes a deep breath, gathers his
laundry (clothes this time, not money), and exits the vehicle.
Yagura pushes into the rundown laundromat, eyes automatically
flitting around, even as he tells himself that he is so stupid to even-
Sakura is seated atop a washing machine, a large medical tome
seated in her lap. She is beautiful, hair loose and features relaxed, as she
taps out a beat along with the rhythm of the machine beneath her.
She is not alone.
A man is speaking with her and, from his scrubs and smarmy
expression, Yagura knows he must be a work colleague.
Sakura doesn’t seem all that interested in their conversation, eyes straying
to her book and Yagura cannot let this stand.
He heads over to them, opening up the machine beside Sakura with
force and pushing all of his darks into the machine. He is intentionally loud
and he cannot hide a vindictive smirk as people begin to take notice.
Including Sakura and her suitor.
face brightens as she takes him in and Yagura doesn’t even catch the way the
doctor next to her blanches and backs away. No, he is entranced with Sakura’s
grin, one that she wears just for him.
“Thanks for that, Yagura,”
she says, leaning forward as if she is interested in talking with him, as if
she wants him there. “Dude could not take a hint.”
“Yeah, I noticed,” Yagura
says, contenance darkening for a moment. “Want me to do anything about it?”
“You mean in a ‘sleeping
with the fishes’ type of way?” Sakura asks, shaking her head. “Too much
paperwork on my end. Though I could certainly use your presence every laundry
day. What do you say? Join me every other Saturday for laundry?”
She is teasing him.
She is teasing him, a
crime lord, without any hints of fear or recrimination in her eyes.
Yagura has never been more in love.
“Wait a minute,” Sakura
says, sitting up straight and scrutinizing him closely. Yagura feels himself
flush. “Are you jealous?”
“J-jealous? Whatever gave
you that idea?” Yagura asks, straightening his cuff links.
Sakura narrows her eyes for a moment before shaking her head. “You’re right.” She
blushes lightly. “Sorry about that; you did something really sweet and I teased
you for it.”
“I-it’s fine,” Yagura
Sakura unfolds from her position on the washing machine, hopping
down to his level. She leans in, brushing a soft, light kiss against his cheek.
mind goes blank as she pulls away, smiling sweetly. She hops back onto the
machine, opening her book. “Thank you Yagura,” she says. “I really appreciate
Yagura waits until she is immersed in the book before he slowly,
subtly presses a hand to his cheek where she kissed it. It still feels warm and
Yagura slumps, boneless against the laundry machine beside her.

Rowdy: Wishbone, you tell that baby that milk’s about ready to be delivered! Hey, what about–[backs into Mr. Favor] Favor:[catching and letting go of Rowdy awkwardly] And where are you going? Rowdy: Oh, I figured on milking me a buffalo cow! Favor: You what? Rowdy: Yeah, well… Favor: Look, we’re moving this herd along in an hour. You figure you got time to find a buffalo, and milk it, eat your morning meal, and be ready to kick this herd along in an hour? Rowdy: Well, I figured on passing on the morning meal. Favor: As long as you’re ready when we are. Rowdy: You mean as long as Mama Buffalo’s ready!
