happy thought: imagine how big haruka is going to smile the first time she gets to introduce michiru as "my wife" and vise-versa
I have a little stack of these “happy thoughts” in my Ask Box, and I’m just going to keep posting them sporadically.
Can’t you see Haruka, just SO PROUD? Like they’re at a dinner party or some event, maybe a gallery showing for Michiru, some situation where Haruka’s like ALREADY so fucking proud. And they aren’t TECHNICALLY newlyweds anymore, they’ve been back from their honeymoon for little over a week, but it still FEELS like it’s new to Haruka. And she gets into this conversation with someone at the event (or said someone makes the mistake of making eye contact with her).
“Yeah, I’m here with my wife, Michriu, who happens to be my wife. Can you believe it? Michiru is my wife. It sounds so great, doesn’t it? ‘My wife, Michiru.’ You should try saying it. No, no, don’t say, because I’ll want to dig a hole to the center of the earth and bury you there, it’s a whole thing. So just think it. Actually, don’t even do that, just listen to me say it again. 'My wife, Michiru’. 'Wife’. 'Michriu’. 'My’. Isn’t that beautiful? Isn’t she beautiful? My wife? Who is Michiru? Michiru is my wife. Wife.”
Haruka drifts off for a second, then shakes her head clear.
“Right, so I was going to say! My wife, Michiru, is my wife and …”
If there was ever going to be another point to this conversation, nobody ever learns what it is.
