Kiliel Home Depot adventures prompted by @charsid that took me wayyy to long to fill. Hope y’all enjoy :)
“Tauriel, no. No way are we going with tapioca.”
“Why not?” She squints at the paint sample. It looks perfectly fine to her.
“Maybe I don’t want to think about gross pudding every time I walk in the door?” Kili runs a careless hand through his hair. He’s one of those annoying people who has no idea how good he looks. However, Tauriel’s finding him less attractive than usual at this very moment.
“Okay, well, what’s that in your hand?” she fires back, blushing a bit. He holds up his own paint sample, grinning like he actually can’t see anything wrong with it.
“It’s electric eel.”
“It’s bright green, Kili. We’ll go blind with that all over the living room.”
“Babe, come on,” he says, sidling up to her and wrapping an arm around her waist. “Let’s not lose sight of what’s important here.”
“We have our own place now, just us. No Fili leaving wet towels everywhere—“
“You do that,” Tauriel interrupts, thought she can’t resist leaning into his side a bit.
“—no Legolas taking up half the fridge with his food,” Kili goes on without missing a beat. He smiles up at her. “It’s just you and me now.”
Tauriel likes to think she’s a strong-willed person. But she knows she’s a goner the second she looks down at Kili’s face. Even after a year and a half of dating, she hasn’t quite learned to resist the puppy eyes yet.
“Fine,” she concedes, trying to look stern but finding it way too difficult. “I guess you can pick the kitchen color. But nothing too weird, I mean it.”
He holds up a vibrant sunset orange sample; the shade practically burns Tauriel’s retinas, and Kili’s giving her the smuggest grin she’s ever seen.
