Coming home from work was that breath of fresh air that you needed, the weight on your shoulders lifting as you walk through the door. It was nothing new but today was too stressful and that’s all it took to push you over the edge — it was something you weren’t able to hold it in any longer. Exhaustion took over you and it was clear to your boyfriend. He watches you drop your bag by the staircase, sliding your feet out of your shoes to slide into the comfort of the pair of slippers he loved matching with you.
There he was sitting on the sofa by the tv, clothed in his usual grey hoodie and dark sweats to which you walk toward him with his arms already open and ready to hold you. A relived sigh left your mouth as you saw his welcoming gesture, already beginning to feel at ease.
“Come here, love.”
He cradled you slowly, side to side, his lips were resting atop of your head whilst simultaneously humming a calming tune. You love it when he sings or hums to you. It’s his way of making you forget about your troubles and engulfing you in that comfort that’s well needed and appreciated.
The vibrations from his humming travelled from his chest to yours, gradually letting your eyes shut from the lull of his comfort. It wasn’t long until your body eased into Taehyun’s, peaceful in his hold and knowing that you’re safe to relax without a worry in mind.
He was truly amazing for that matter. He always knew what to do and how to look after you even when you were beginning to subconsciously disregard your own wellbeing.
You shift in his arms slightly, “Taehyun,” he hummed in response to the soft call of his name. “I’m sorry I don’t do much around the house. I want to, but work lately has been eating up all my energy, and I really do appreciate that you’re here to do that too, but it’s unfair to you.”
“Hey, my love, look at me,” he held out his forefinger lightly lifting your chin until your lips met his, initiating the first tender kiss you’ve received in a while before repeatedly giving you gentle pecks. “It’s okay. You don’t have to go through this alone, yes? Just know that I’ll always be here for you even when times are tough, that’s why I’m here.” He gently squeezed your frame in a reassuring manner, reminding you that everything will be okay and will work out in its own divine time.
You lean your head against his chest again, your temple resting by his collar bones. Deep in thought you were mentally fighting the urge to tell him that he didn’t have to do that, that you didn’t want to be a burden to him. And yet, he knows it’s difficult for you to accept something so simple.
“Taehyun?” You lift your head, raising your hand to cup his cheek, eyes holding that loving gaze.
“Thank you,” you pause, pecking his soft pink tinted lips. “And I love you, so much.”
