“Morning, beloved.”

Steve smiled, feeling Tony draping himself over Steve’s solid frame. Steve was in the kitchen, making coffee, not surprised in the slightest that the smell of freshly brewed coffee did lure his lover out of the warm bed.

“Morning, Tony,” Steve hummed out, turning his head to the side, to get a good morning kiss, Tony was eager to give.

“You got up early today,” Tony said pleasantly, licking his lips after the kiss. Steve’s lips tasted of freshly squeezed orange juice. Tart and tangy and delicious.

JB as a boyfriend

The 5 senses version


  • He has a poker face that only you know well enough to read his emotions
  • Smiling brightly every time right before he kisses you
  • His face lighting up every time you walk into the room, regardless of his mood


  • Teasing you about silly things like being scared of spiders and scary movies (but he loves protecting you from those things)
  • Singing you cheesy love songs whenever he gets the chance
  • Texting or calling for at least an hour every night you aren’t together


  • Apple pie ~ Tart and tangy, not 100% sweet but 100% tasty


  • Fall leaves on a windy day, campfires in early autumn, hinting at storms behind his gentleness


  • Spooning in bed with neck and jaw line nuzzles and kisses
  • Resting his head in your lap while watching TV on the couch
  • Massages on the bed that turn into tickle and pillow fights

Overall, JB doesn’t care about an audience, he is affectionate and loving at all times. He can be cranky but you are the one bright spot that always shines in his life.

October was in the chair, so it was chilly that evening, and the leaves were red and orange and tumbled from the trees that circled the grove. The twelve of them sat around a campfire roasting huge sausages on sticks, which spat and crackled as the fat dripped onto the burning applewood, and drinking fresh apple cider, tangy and tart in their mouths.
