Right now Even comes back from picking up Lise and is in a seemingly endless discussion over what animals they should see first when they go to the zoo this afternoon.
(His suggestion to just see what animal comes first when you walk through the zoo was elegantly ignored by his little sister).
When he opens the door to their flat Lise rushes past him, is out of her tiny shoes in a second and starts into the livingroom/bedroom to find Isak.
“Woah, halla!” Isak says, almost crashing with Lise in the doorway. He smiles down at her and does the awkward half wave he always does. Even lowers his head to hide his grin. There was no other word than adorkable for Isak right now.
Lise, who had stopped dead when he appeared in front of her, now sways from side to side and mumbles “Halla.” back, voice shy and eyes on his feet.
Even bites his bottom lip to at least tame his grin a bit. They both do this every time. They can’t wait to see each other but as soon as they meet up they both get awkward and shy. At least it only lasts a few minutes every time. So, Even walks up behind Lise, pokes her in her side to make her giggle and places a greeting kiss on Isak’s lips.
because I’m obsessive and stressed I made a document listing comprehensive, step-by-step analysis of the remaining to-dos for cosplay for NYCC, and what still needs to be bought, and realized that it is entirely possible that between me and @ameliarating we may end up with six different black wigs
How does Isak know Even is drunk? Well, the thing with drunk!Even is that he gets happy and clingy. Don’t get him wrong, Isak is not complaining. Where someone might think he’d find that annoying, he finds the constant need of contact, the flushed cheeks and the ruffled hair of his boyfriend were nothing but adorable.
Even doesn’t drink often, which is why, when he does, he gets drunk pretty quickly. He usually just nurses one or two beers over the timespan of the party but on some occasions he allows himself some more drinks.
If it is one of those rare nights, a few things are very likely to happen:
Even exclaiming “Halla!” even though they stood beside each other the whole time with a crinkly smile that makes Isak’s mouth widen into a grin in
return. With a much softer and lower voice Isak responds, “Halla,
baby.” which earns him nose nuzzles when Even leans in. Isak pecks his
lips once and then assesses his boy and asks quietly “You ok?” while he bumps their noses once more. Even nods enthusiastically.
Even slumping down close to Isak on a couch (or rather, at least half on him) or scooting closer and closer until he has a leg over or under him before he circles both his long arms around Isak’s middle, settles his head down against his shoulder and sighs contentedly.
asleep curled beside (or on top of) Isak, who strokes his arms up and down or
scratches his head or just has an arm around him.
with Eva, Mags, Eskild, Vilde, Ricardo (who even was that again? A friend of
Eskilds? Doesn’t matter tho, he’ll be rambling) about how much he loves Isak. (Drunk Eva and or Eskild always agree excitedly and well a lot of gushing happens until Even goes off to find Isak bc he misses him).
all the boys repeatedly and telling them how
awesome they are. Mahdi and Jonas always gently shove him in the direction of either Isak or Mags when this happens (which both of them gladly take on, Isak not at all jealous that the attention wasn’t on him for a minute. Not at all. Ok? He isn’t. Stop, he really isn’t jeez. But that’s enough Mags, give him back already).
everyone for breakfast at their place for the next morning and promising a variety of pancakes, fruitsalat, waffles (cue fingerguns at Mahdi), scrambled eggs etc.
Even allwoing Mags to crash at theirs (which Isak revoks instantly).
Isak or attacking him with cheek kisses out of the blue even though they were
in a conversation with someone else.
Isak he loves him a good 20 times in an hour and dramatically pouts when Isak
doesn’t respond with i love you, too in
an instant. (which he really always does but Even is an impatient fucker when drunk).
Even poking into Sana’s dimples when she grinned at something sassy Isak says at which both bio buds roll their eyes but can’t really surpress a smirk.
(Thir friends don’t find the cuddling out of the ordinairy since A) they have seen Even drunk before and B) drunk!isak is honestly way worse with the PDA bc drunk!isak is just one hell of a horny guy.)
“So,” Even began with a cheeky smile, locked his phone and rolled onto his side to face Isak on their bed. “I have great and slightly maaaybe annoying news.”
Isak mirrored Even, an intrigued look on his face, eyes squinted and tongue between his lips as he waited expectantly.
“Good first.” Isak decided and Even leaned in to press quick and sweet kiss against Isak’s lips.
“You get to take me to the zoo tomorrow!” He murmured against Isak’s mouth as if this was all Isak could have ever dreamed of.
Breathing a laugh Isak mumbled “Lucky me.”
Added a kiss and then nodded once, bracing himself before he said “Ok, now the maybe slightly annoying news.”
Even pursed his lips once, a nervous gesture Isak grew very familiar with over the last few months, before the words left him in a rush.
“Mom asked if we would take Lise for two days, because they will have to go to my grandparents house and sort through their stuff to decide what to throw out and all that, now that they are moving down here and Lise would be so bored and also run around there and mom won’t have time to really look after her and… Yeah.” He finished inelegantly and searched Isak’s face for any sign of uncomfortableness or annoyance.
What he found, though, was a small fond smile and one of their signature eyebrow raises.
“Are you saying I not only get taken to the zoo, but also get to hang out with my favourite Bech Næsheim?” Isak mock-gasped “I’m in!”
“Excuse me, I’m your favourite Bech Næsheim!?” Even’s outrage was betrayed by the grin on his face.
Isak pulled a face and made a hmm, not really gesture with his hand.
“What!” Even huffed and shoved gently at the shoulder of a giggling Isak, before he scooted closer and tangled their legs together.
After a moment of soft smiles and hands being interwined, Even’s face sobered a bit.
“Are you sure? I could tell mom I can’t and you’re working or something if you don’t want to, baby.” But Isak was already shaking his head before he finished talking.
“No, I’m ok with it. I love how you are with her and it’s,” he shrugged with one shoulder, “always fun when it’s the three of us.”
And Isak really meant it - the first few intimidating moments of awkwardness aside - he really was gone for that energy loaded little girl. He loved spending time with every member of Even’s family to be honest, they always made him feel like he really belonged with them.
Even smiled at him in that slightly surprised and in awe way that made Isak’s stomach flutter when he leaned back in for more kisses.
After a while Even leaned back, just enough to press their foreheads together and enjoy the drunk-in-love look on Isak’s face for a second before he murmured “Say it.”
He nuzzled their noses together as Isak furrowed his brows a bit in confusion.
“Say I’m your fave.” Even explained with a grin and a kiss to Isak’s cheek. Isak finally caught on and a smile tugged on his lips as half lidded eyes locked with Even’s.
This was their usual playful banter, but Isak knew Even sometimes needed to hear his feelings out loud to get rid of that little voice of doubt.
So, instead of continuing with a drag, he brushed a lose strand of blond behind Even’s ear, before he pulled him in a bit to once again smush their foreheads and noses together.
“You’re not just my favourite Bech Næsheim,” he began in an almost whisper and stroked his hand up and down Even’s back. “You’re also my all time favourite person.”
The bright smile that took over Even’s face made his sparkly eyes crinkle at the sides.
“Yeah?” Even asked and Isak placed three hard pecks on Even’s lips before he answered.
