Because, well, I felt like writing something different.

I swear though, Solitaire Pair is like WIN. To me, it's like…it actually WORKS. But Niou's probably too OOC anyway. xD

My brain is amazing. XD

Shishido Ryou stared at his kitchen, glaring at the ants that were crawling all over his white countertop. He twitched when he found out the source as to why all the ants were invading his home; a cup of Calpico had been left out on his counter.

He took his cellphone out from his pocket and dialed Niou's number while getting some bug spray from his closet.

Ring. Ring. Ring.

Shishido ruthlessly sprayed the contents of the container onto his whole counter, even on his cup. Screw the freaking cup, he thought.

Ring. Ring. Ring.

Why wouldn't Niou pick up the damned phone? It was already three in the afternoon; surely he wouldn't be still sleeping?

Ring. Ring. Ri-

Finally, after the ninth ring, Niou picked up. "What?" came a groggy voice. "Why are you calling me so early in the morning?"

Shishido almost forgot to answer. "It's already three in the afternoon! What are you doing still sleeping?!"

"Oh…I stayed up all night playing some video game," Niou answered him with a yawn. "I think it was called…oh, I dunno, I forgot. Anyway, why are you calling me?"

"You left your freaking drink out on the counter," Shishido growled, giving the counter a few more sprays. "Now there's like a million ants on my counter, and I have to clean up the mess. Why couldn't you just put your cup back in the fridge or something?!"

"Whatever. It's not like it's going to kill you cleaning up dead ants," was the only answer he got. "I'm tired, you know."

"You could actually act like a responsible adult once in a while. Seriously, sometimes you still act like a kid."


"Come and help me clean up the mess at least."

All Shishido got was a noncommittal grunt, and then a few seconds later Niou hung up. He sighed, and began cleaning up the mess.

A day later…

Knock! Knock!

"Coming!" Shishido called out, crossing his living room and reaching the front door. He opened the door, and to his surprise Niou was standing outside. "What are you doing here?"

"What the hell do you think I'm doing here?! I'm here to clean up the mess, if you've forgotten," Niou answered him.

Shishido only stared at him.

"Well you could let me in at least," Niou said impatiently. "It's freezing out here."

"You do know that was yesterday…right?"

"Whatever," Niou answered him. "At least I'm here to help you."

"I've already cleaned it up."

"…What the hell?!"

"Did you expect me to just leave it there?!"

"What the hell?! Of course I'd think you'd leave it there! Didn't I say I was coming over to help you?! And what the hell…" And so Shishido had to listen to Niou's uncharacteristically long rant.

Really, his boyfriend could sometimes be such a pain in the butt.

I deleted like, half of this story because I made Niou into a Mukahi. X.x. But then, I fixed it, so it's okay now! Yay!
