Chapter 23 – You can lie down on the bed.
"You can lie down on the bed."
Near and Mello both locked their gazes on each other, their eyes widening before they both looked at me, Near with a mix of confusion and irritation while Mello only gave me the irritation.
"Again with that…?" Mello breathed out, taking his hands from Near's shirt. Near did the same, probably wanting to avoid having another sexual experience with Mello so soon.
"Ah… perhaps you need more foreplay? I thought that would have been enough." I pondered, and Mello's jaw dropped while Near's eyes widened and his face went a little more red, as did Mello's.
"L!" Mello yelled. "Are… you actually serious about watching… Near and me…" he looked at Near, who looked at him at the same time, both of their faces steadily darkening. "… Are you?"
"Yes?" I questioned, humoring him. He groaned, crossing his arms and looking at me.
"Why can't I do it with you instead?" he whined. I resisted twitching, Near glaring slightly from Mello to myself. Near was scary when made angry…
"… Definitely, not a good idea." I told him after some thinking. Mello let out a string of curses and some incoherent words, and Near took a tiny step away from him as he started complaining at a rapid speed.
And so Mello complained for a long time, until…
"L, I got the sweets you requested." Watari stepped in through the door, holding a box of rainbow-sprinkled cupcakes in one of his hands.
"Great timing, Watari…" I breathed, and Mello went silent, both of them staring at Watari, but Mello shot a few more glances at me.
"Mello, Near." I addressed them, drawing both of their attentions back to myself. "You are free to leave now. The meeting is over." I told them as Watari walked over to where we were, handing me a cupcake on a plate and setting the box of them down on the table.
Nice try! Let's see the current level of closeness between Mello and Near after your intervention…
