Pairings: Atemu + Yuugi
Story Type: Drabble/one-shot
Summary: Pyjamas aren't something to get annoyed over.
Disclaimer: Don't own Yuugiou, clean and simple.
Notes: Set in the same AU as theme 075 – plushie, except fast forwarded a few years from that time.
"Yuugi, don't you think it's time you grow out of these pyjamas?"
He looks down at the star-patterned, light blue attire. "What's wrong with it? It's comfortable to wear."
"It's just that, last time we went on our grade trip, some of the ruder boys in our class were making fun of you – doesn't it get annoying for you?"
He shrugs like it's not a big deal. "At the most they'll see me wear them once a year. So what?"
Atemu shakes his head, chuckling. "As long as it doesn't bother you."
"Unless you're troubled by it? I guess it looks a little childish..."
"Oh no! Not at all, Yuugi." Atemu's face is one of surprise, a little shocked and a hint of alarm seeps into his voice, as if afraid he's somehow offended his companion. "It's. Kind of. Um. Getting worn though." He points to the joints areas, which are visibly thinner to the point of almost seeing holes.
"I'll get some cloth and sew them up later," Yuugi yawns, putting away his toothbrush. "Besides, this is the first thing that my dad has ever bought for me, so it's a little hard to throw away just because of a little wear..."
It's quick, but Atemu catches a fleeting, bittersweet smile before Yuugi faces completely away from him. He decides not to probe, because it's the first time in half a year since the last time he's slept over – school gets in the way more often than not – and he likes to spend this night as carefree as possible. Who knows when they'll get to do this again?
"Atemu, are you coming out of the bathroom any time soon?"
"Coming, coming," he hastily hangs up his towel in the spot reserved for him, and turns off the light on his way out. Yuugi's already in the middle of spreading out two futon in the cleared space in his room. "So what's the plan for tomorrow?"
"Sleeping in. I think we both deserve it after those exams."
