Once it’s mentioned, you can’t help but notice something peculiar about how your husband looks at you.

Also, I set up an art blog and I’m going to shamelessly promote it on here it’s @sleepy-doodles you can send in art requests on there if you’d like.
“Have you ever noticed it?” Jahee asked, turning her gaze to you.
She had dropped by to pick up some papers from Jumin, your husband having left the room to retrieve them.
“Noticed what?” You raised a curious brow, frowning.
“The way he looks at you.”
You scrunched up your nose, questions burning in your head at the idea. “What about it…?”
“I’ve never seen him look at anything the way he looks at you,” She stated. “It’s like you…it’s like you painted the very sky or raise the sun every day. It’s like…you’re everything.”
Your eyes widened to the size of saucers, never having quite thought about it before.
And the gears in your mind began to turn.
He had always viewed you with such warmth and adoration, a light in his gaze like a candle in a dark room.
As though as long as you were beside him, it’d be okay.
“I think he’s truly happy,” She smiled lightly. “because of you.”
The words left you stunned, still processing the very idea as Jahee left, having all that she needed.
And Jumin quickly noticed.
You never stopped studying him, examining to see if that same glint would stay in his eyes towards anything else.
But it didn’t.
It only came when he looked at you.
It was as if he lit up like a firework at the very sight of you.
He loved you that much?
The pure amount left you in shock, hardly able to comprehend it.
Someone loved you that much.
He loved you so much.
“Darling, what’s the matter?” He eventually asked, peering closer. “Did something happen?”
You shook your head, reaching up to cup his face in your fingers.
There was so much tenderness in his gaze.
There always had been.
As though he was overwhelmed with his adoration for you, spilling out in his words and expression.
Did he know how much he meant to you?
Did you tell that much in your glances?
Jumin melted at your touch, taking your hand and pressing his lips between your knuckles, smiling lightly.
“Why do you…” You began, the question slipping from you without you even entirely aware. “Why do you look at me the way you do…?”
He stopped, tipping his head in confusion. “What do you mean?”
“You look at me like…like I’m your entire world…”
He thought for a moment before chuckling softly, pulling you close.
“Well, that’s because you are my entire world dear.”
You opened your mouth to speak but nothing came out.
“MC, you’ve changed my life like I never thought possible,” Jumin explained, weaving his fingertips through your hair. “You gave me a reason to smile and to laugh, a reason to believe that miracles existed. Because you are a miracle.”
“Darling, what you see when I look at you is hardly a fraction of how much you mean to me.”
You couldn’t even come up with what to say in response, tears welling in your eyes as you erupted towards him, curling your arms around him, holding him as though he were your lifeline.
He returned the embrace in seconds, not even hesitating.
“I love you so much.” Your murmured, your face buried in the crook of his neck.
And his response left you never wanting to let go.
“And it still amazes me how lucky I am that you do.”
Folks, if you wouldn’t mind, future questions about the Toon Henry AU (and all other questions not directly about art) should really go to my personal blog, @squigglydigglydoo! This is really meant to be my art blog. :O
Some photos of my kenku costume at Anthrocon 2016, taken by @adammillerstudio! Oh boy did I ever have a lot of fun! The other raven in these photos is @qawstume and the snowy owl we are mobbing is @crystumes, who made both of the blanks that we used for our masks.
