Written for fanfic_bakeoff
He’s been sitting at the counter all morning watching me and Russell and snickering. When Russell fills up his coffee cup and leaves the room and Ed snickers once more, I finally reach my limit.
“What is so funny?”
Ed gives me a devious look that makes me wary and replies, “You haven’t noticed have you?”
The snickering returns in full force and I glare at him.
“I’m amused with something that obviously has to do with you and Russell. I love you and refuse to think you are this blind and dense so I’ll give you another chance to figure it out.”
I wrack my brain but come up with nothing and the few guesses I give voice has Ed rolling his eyes and looking exasperated.
“Alright Sparky, I’ll give you one big glaring hint but that’s it. If you don’t get it from this I give up on you.”
Before I could reply Ed shouts for Russell and when he enters the room Ed asks us to face each other. Russell looks as confused as I am but he’s just as use to Ed’s antics and sense of humor so he plays along without question.
So here we are, facing each other and confused as fuck. I was about to call Ed crazy when it happens. I realize what it is and I don’t know how to feel about it.
Ed must have seen the dawn of realization on my face because he dismisses Russell who’s only response is to kiss Ed on the cheek and say, “Be sure to tell me what this is all about once you’re done being amused, Love.”
Russell’s hit a late growth spurt and is now noticeably taller than I am.
I’ll never hear the end of it.
