Seeing Ajax in the study focused on a textbook with notes scattered all over the desk after six months of having to rely on the poor signals of hotel Wi-Fi, brought a broad grin to Daniel’s features and while he knew that getting Ajax’s attention at this point in time would require more than a simple hello, how you’ve been, pay attention to me, this was important. This couldn’t wait. Okay, it could wait but it was something he preferred to deal with now, before he changed his mind and decided to bring this up on another occasion after he was gone for another six months and could avoid the conversation altogether.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to deal with this, he did but it wasn’t simple; it was best to deal with it now.
Giving the other a once-over, Daniel sidestepped over to the project and plugged in his computer, clearing his throat three times (for good measure) to ensure that Ajax’s attention was on him. After all, he’d always been far more entertaining than a book, no matter how many times his husband tried to deny it. “We need to talk…” Daniel awkwardly stated, aware that the four words were the last thing anyone wanted to hear, especially when on the wall it read:
Reasons Why I Deserve A Goat: An Autobiography By the Love of Your Life, Your Favorite (AND ONLY) Husband, the Reason For Your Smiles, Daniel Devereaux-Snyder.
