Neji lay bundled up in his sheets, his arms splayed out across the double bed, thinking contently about the night before with Shikamaru.

The Hyuga turned onto his side, and his eyes fell upon his boyfriend, who was lying on his back, covered by the blanket Neji wasn't wrapped in.

A pale hand touched a tan shoulder; he scooted closer to the Nara and pulled him to his chest. The hand that was once on his shoulder, rest on the other's head, while Neji lay back on the bed.

Shikamaru snuggled into his chest, breathing softly, while his arms loosely wound their way around his boyfriend's waist.

The two stayed like that for a while, until the dark eyed man awoke, smiling at their position.

"You awake?" Neji asked Shikamaru as the other moved around him.

"Yerp." Shikamaru rubbed his eyes, and shook his head softly, removing signs of sleep.

Shikamaru sat up, wrapping the sheet more firmly around his waist while he examined his lover who was still laying on the bed. "I love you, Shikamaru."

Shikamaru smiled, "You know, I think I might love you too."

Pale arms wrapped themselves around Shikamaru's lithe waist and pulled him down to Neji's chest.

Even though I'm not a morning person, I could wake up like this everyday.
