As dawn approached, the butler snapped out of his daydreaming and realized he still had to prepare for the upcoming morning. So much for peace…he mentally grumbled. Sebastian began to sit up and retrieve his clothes, but Ciel clung to him tightly, forbidding him from leaving. A chuckle escaped his lips as he gently attempted to remove the child’s hand.
The young boy made a small noise. “…we have other servants, Sebastian…” He whined lightly, “…you don’t have to go right away this morning…” The young lord sighed, opening his tired blue eyes to gaze at his butler. He didn’t realize he spoke the word “we”, and he didn’t care, just wishing his butler to stay with him while the duties weren’t as pressing. He hadn’t had this much closeness with anyone for so long, if ever, and he kept his hand on him. “…please…” It was a small, barely audible request, but he meant it.
Sebastian didn’t expect his master’s words, and his ruby eyes slightly widened. Children…he thought, amused. He finished putting his pants on and climbed back in bed, shirtless. ”Very well then, my lord.” the raven whispered as he kissed Ciel. He thought about the events that occured last night, and blissfully sighed.
The youth’s eyes softened as he settled closer to his butler, sore from the previous night, but content nonetheless. He hummed lightly in content, happy to be with Sebastian as his mind wandered in question of things. I wonder what Sebastian’s name was before I ‘named’ him… Looking up at him in wonder, he sighed lightly in content, happy to have the time to blissfully muse.
Sebastian leaned on his hand that propped him up, and gently stroked Ciel’s head. Even if he was happy to be with him, he began to tire of simply thinking. His hands itched to get some work done.
