Summary: Daveed comes home from a trip and comes back with a surprise…
Word count: About 600
It all started when you were sat on the couch on your phone. Not really searching anything, just, exploring. Daveed was sitting at his desk, writing down lyrics for… some project. You were scrolling through your Facebook and you came across an ad.
“Small female pug for sale! Needs a home!”
You gasped as you looked through the few pictures they had of the little puppy. It seemed to be the runt of the group, which only made you want it more.
Daveed was writing down lyrics. Words flying across the page as he jammed out to one of his favorite albums. He looked at the page, tore it out, and threw away the paper. Nothing good was coming to his mind. He was trying to get something, even a sentence, that he liked. As he slid off his headphones and rested his head on the table in defeat. He heard a gasp and very quick footsteps coming to his small office/recording studio.
He sat up as he immediately felt your presence in the room.
“What is it honey?”
You shoved your phone into Daveed’s hands and gave him a second to look through the post.
“…So you want this puppy.”
“Yes! She’s so cute! Like I want to stab my eyes out she’s RIDICULOUSLY cute!”
Daveed laughed a bit, “Honey you know we don’t have the room for a dog. And I’m always gone all the time…”
You sighed, “But… Then she’ll keep me company.”
“Hm… We’ll see I guess. You should probably head to bed soon baby.”
“Yeah… I assume you’ll stay up writing then… Goodnight babe.” You lean down a bit to press and soft kiss to his lips. He smiles, “Goodnight babe.”
Little did you know he has a plan up his sleeve.
It was the next morning and you woke up to find the bed empty. No warm, strong arms wrapped around you. You got out of bed and looked into Daveed’s office. Nothing. Kitchen. Nothing. Bathroom. Nothing. You checked basically everywhere and Daveed was just… gone.
This is when worry started to settle in. You called him a couple times and sent a few texts to get no reply. Eventually you have up and decided that maybe he went on a walk and his phone had died… or something like that.
An hour passed and you were of course, very worried. You tried to do things to preoccupy yourself but the lack of Daveed in your apartment didn’t feel right. You were sitting on a chair reading a book when the door opened to reveal Daveed. Holding a small pug.
“No way…” You said as you sat down your book and rushed over to take the small puppy.
“When did you- is this why you were gone all day?!”
He laughed, “Surprise!” Neither him or you could stop your smiling. He took off his coat and you sat the puppy down, allowing her to walk around a bit.
“You are a man of many surprises, Diggs.” You smiles and kissed him, putting your arms around his neck. You pulled away and went over to the puppy. Kneeling down to pet her gently and scratching behind her ear.
“So what do you wanna name her?” Daveed said as he kneeled down next to you.
“How about… Tony Award Nominated Daveed Diggs?”
He laughed and kissed your cheek, “What about… Petunia!”
“I like it… Petunia L/N Diggs.” You smiled and held up the puppy, kissing it’s tiny nose.
