Eren furrows his eyebrows at his boyfriend. “Are you alright?” he asks.
“Huh?” Levi replies.
“You keep squinting when you look at the TV.”
Levi frowns. “I’m not squinting.”
“What do you call this then?” Eren asks and imitates the face Levi was making.
“I did not look like that!”
“You absolutely did!”
Levi’s mom comes in from work. “Hi Eren,” she says cheerfully. She bends over to kiss the top of Levi’s head and drops a box in his lap. “You’re glasses are here, sweetie.”
Eren’s eyes widen and Levi shoots a look at his mom. “Moooom~” he whines. “I didn’t tell Eren yet.”
She shakes her head. “Guess I told him for you then,” she says and walks to her bedroom to put her purse away and go through the rest of the mail.
Levi looks hesitantly toward Eren who grinning stupidly. “Lemme see,” he says.
“Fuck you,” Levi replies.
Eren frowns. “Please? I bet you look great with glasses.”
“Are you saying I have a shitty face?”
“No, I’m just saying glasses could enhance your features or make them look cooler and more mature.”
Levi frowns down at the box in his lap. “I don’t want glasses,” he mutters.
“Why not contacts then?”
“Mom used to wear them and she thinks they’ll be too uncomfortable for me.”
Eren takes the box of Levi’s lap and opens it. He smiles. “They look nice,” he says. “Lean forward for me.”
Levi leans further back in his chair. “No way.”
Eren smirks and gets up on Levi’s lap. “Just sit still.”
Levi tosses his head back and forth. “No, I hate them!”
Levi mom sneaks up behind them and holds his head still so Eren can slip the frames on him. Levi pouts as he stares up at his boyfriend. “Happy?”
Eren smiles softly. “They look great on you.”
Levi’s cheeks go slightly pink and he crosses his arms. “You’re just saying that.”
Levi’s mom sits on the other couch. “They really do look good, Lee,” she says. “Go look.”
Eren pulls him off the couch and drags him to the bathroom. “See?” he says.
The frames are thick, dark red, and round on the bottom. Looking at himself with Eren smiling at him like that, he doesn’t feel quite as bad about them. “I guess they’re alright,” he mutters.
Eren leans over and kisses his cheek. “They’re perfect.”
No, you’re perfect, Levi thinks. He has to hide his blush from Eren.
