For your Drabble prompt: a quiet night
The waves wash gently upon the shore, a soft and steady sound as they rise and fall, soughing endlessly down the coast. Viktor closes his eyes to listen better, quiet and content.
“There’s gonna be sand in our hair later,” Yuuri sighs, snuggling against his side and tangling their legs together. They’ve got a blanket laid out for stargazing–there’s a meteor shower tonight–and it’s still, quiet, and peaceful. Just the two of them, the sea, and the stars.
“Worry about it later, then,” he suggests, pulling Yuuri closer. The wind picks up for a moment, blowing sand everywhere despite their blanket, and Yuuri splutters, hiding his face in Viktor’s shoulder to avoid getting any in his mouth. Viktor can’t help but smile.
A few moments pass. A meteor streaks by overhead, and Yuuri points at it with delight.
“Did you see it?” he asks excitedly. “That one was bright!”
“I saw it!” Viktor nods. “Did you make a wish, solnyshko?”
Yuuri shakes his head. “Why would I?” he asks. “You’re already here.”
Viktor turns his head to look from the sky to Yuuri, to the moonlight reflected in his dark eyes. His face lights up when he spots a second meteor, gasping in delight, but Viktor only has eyes for him. He’s beautiful.
“Vitya! Vitya, you didn’t see that one!” Yuuri laughs, glancing at him with a playful shake of his head. “You’re not going to see any shooting stars if you don’t look up, you know.”
“Who needs stars?” Viktor asks, giving him a squeeze. “You’re already here.”
Yuuri smiles, far brighter than any of the constellations above.
