Gray/Rogue - watching Frosch
AN: Ooh, fluff! It’s been awhile since I’ve written. This might be my first Gray/Rogue fic, so please go easy on me.
Gray watched curiously as the small pet galloped around, it’s pink clothed tail swinging carelessing in the wind. Much like the frog outfit it wore, Frosch would bounce off their paws in chase of the butterfly which glided around. Almost like a game of cat and mouse, the exceed would follow the insect with glee.
In watching Frosches activity, Gray found himself entranced. It was difficult to connect such a childish animal to a shadowed man like Rogue. The two were polar opposites, Frosch being a being that at furst glance of the dragon slayer should quiver in fear. No such thing has ever happened though.
The moment Rogue stepped into view, Frosch would clibg to him with a wide smile. Rogue was Frosch protector. He was not someone the exceed would run from because Frosch could never trust anyone more than Rogue.
That was a trust Gray believed fully in. Not for the bond a dragon slayer and exceed shared alone but because of the trust Rogue put in Gray himself. Under the care of Gray, Frosch was in care.
And maybe, just maybe, Gray cared for the exceeds partner more than he was willing to accept. Yet, as Gray notice Frosches eyes trail away from the butterfly and watch as another figure cane into view, Grays heart stuttered. He knew if he looked up he would see the tender eyes of night, eyes that would loosen the tightness in his chest.
