hello daily reminder not to ignore female muses and disregard all the hard work put into them bc chances are they had to put in 5 times the effort a male muse has to put in for a sliver of the attention. also? don’t Assume they ONLY exist to jump dick. thanks.
“AAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!” the kid screamed, running as fast as he could back to his parents, who looked on worriedly.
Lance burst out laughing, as Kolivan simply stared out in hurt confusion.
That was the fourth time in the last hour. The majority of young kids took one look at Kolivan and ran for the hills.
There had been a few that had loved his ‘costume,’ but they were few and far in between.
“Am I doing something wrong?” Kolivan asked softly as he turned towards Lance, not happy that he was being laughed at.
“I-I’m sorry,” Lance said, wheezing. “It’s not you.”
Finally managing to catch his breath, he looked up at the purple giant in front of him.
He could see why the kids ran. A lot of them weren’t exactly ready to process his furry (adorable) self, the yellow eyes (which they had explained away as ‘special contacts’), the scar, the height, pretty much everything about him.
He wasn’t very tall right now though, having sat down against the wall, shoulders slumped.
“Do I look scary to them? Strange?”
“Hey, hey,” Lance hurried to reassure, walking over and putting his hands on said shoulders. “It’s not about you, they’re just too young to see how awesome you are.”
Kolivan tried to smile, but the weak attempt disappeared quickly. “I wanted to try this- this hol-id-ay,” he said, sounding it out slowly. “Especially because you love it so much, and you looked so happy this year-”
“Shhhh, shhhhhh,” Lance said, moving his hands to Kolivan’s cheeks (not being able to resist the urge to pinch them slightly) and placing his forehead against his. “I was happy this year because you were going to be here with me. No other reason.”
Kolivan looked up, accidentally brushing his nose against Lance’s.
“Yes, really.” Lance said, smiling softly.
Moving closer, he nuzzled his nose against Kolivan’s, then hopped up.
“Now c’mon, let’s see if we can make it to six in an hour.” he bounced up and down
Smiling ruefully, Kolivan nodded and got up to head towards the front door, but not before he pulled Lance into a tight hug.
“Thank you,” he whispered.
“Love you Koli.”
*They make it to nine in an hour, and Koli says he loves him too and isn’t sad anymore and it’s a happy ending and yay 😆*
