How about “Aww, you’re cuter than a baby kitten” with Ichi?
Despite saying Ichi for almost a year now, you thought you could never top his love for cats. It’s not that he ignored you, he just became a different person when around felines. You thought he was happier around the fluffy fur balls, since he always had a smile.
You couldn’t quit place if it bothered you, or if you were simply jealous of the cats. Silly, what human gets jealous of an animal?
You woke up one morning next to Ichi, who was already awake. He was looking at you while you were sleeping, a smile on his face. You groaned at him.
“Ichi, what do you want..? I look like a mess…”
He chuckled and kissed your forehead.
“No, you don’t. In fact, you look cuter than a baby kitten.”
