Two Letters

Summary: Mello tries a weak ploy to get Matt to tell him he loves him.

Mello entered his apartment, arms full of brown paper grocery bags, and called out to his roommate. "Matt, get your lazy ass out here and help me with these damn groceries!"

The redhead came bounding out of their room excitedly. "Wee, food!"

"Yeah, I got all the shit you like," Mello said, dumping the bags onto the counter.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Matt hugged a package of his coveted gummy worms.

"Well, I was thinking you could express your gratitude in more of a phrase that starts with an I and ends with a U…"

Matt thought a moment. "You're right. I owe you."

The mafia boss face-palmed. No, you dumbass! I meant "I love you."
