Nursery having his bday on Valentine’s Day means he prolly didn’t realise a bazillion times people were giving him a present to confess their feelings…
Like girls gives him chocolates.
“Oh thank you! I didn’t know you knew today was my birthday.”
Girl gets too guilty/flustered and just goes with it.
“Flowers? Thanks! Nobody has ever give me flowers for my birthday before. This is super cool.”
Guy shamefully retreats.
And it happens all the time till…
“Here Nurse, happy whatever” said Dex pushing a badly wrapped present against Nursey’s chest.
“What did you get me?” Nursery asked excitedly and ignoring Dex awkward shifting.
“It’s shaped like a book, feels like a book and looks like a book” said Dex dryly while crossing his arms.
Nursey by this point has tuned him out and ripped the paper apart.
“It’s a book!” Nursery said pleased.
“Shocking,” muttered Dex sarcastically.
“Love Letters of Great Men?” Nursey read out loud and felt his cheeks warm for no reason.
“Yeah,” Dex said oddly still.
“It looks interesting, thanks for the birthday present,” Nursey said already skimming through the book.
Dex cleared his throat. “It isn’t for your birthday.”
Nursey almost missed that, but then his head snapped up and his mouth fell open.
“Happy Valentine’s day you moron,” Dex said before trying to make a break for it.
“No wait!” Nursey called out desperately while stepping on top of the wrapping paper he had left fall to the floor, and slipping.
Dex caught him before he could face plant into the floor, with an exasperated sigh. Nursey looked up at him.
“I’m falling for you,” he said.
Dex mouth fell open and he dropped Nursey.
“You deserve that,” Dex said with pink cheeks.
“Maybe a little,” Nursey admitted, standing up. “Can I take you out to dinner?”
“It’s Valentine’s Day idiot, everywhere is full” Dex said, his position relaxing and allowing Nursey to stand closer than normal.
“Well, I know this place, they have excellent pie and I know for a fact will be empty today.”
“…fine, but we are ordering take out and just watching a movie.”
“No Netflix and chill?” Nursey asked with a smirk.
Dex made a frustrated noise and walked away. “I changed my mind!”
“No wait! Dex I was joking!”
“I’ll see you at 6,” Dex snapped as he continued to walk away.
