Shivering, you tried to cover nose with your warm scarf. It was severely frigid outside, but you were undoubtedly bored in your lonely, desolate place you called "home." So you decided to walk in the deep, crisp snow to your friends', Sollux and Karkat's, house. You hadn't called either of them, nor had you pestered them about trotting to their place. It would be a nice surprise for them, wouldn't it?
As you caught a glimpse of his and Kk's hive, you started to pick up your pace. Man, you seriously didn't want to be in this cold any longer. Dashing to the door, you grabbed the door handle and twisted it. The door opened.
'Are you serious, they left the door open? I thought they were smarter than that...'
Soundlessly, you walked up the steps to Sollux's room and walked in.
You turned your heavy head away from your computer screen to look at the thing that just walked in your room. Oh wait, no, it wasn't a thing. It's just _____. You turned your desk chair to face her a bit better.
"What are you doing here?"
_____ smiled at you and walked over to you. She was staring at you wrapped in your various amounts of yellow blankets. You even had KK's blanket.
"Sollux...are you cold?"
"Yeth!! The whether is rediculouth, I can't thtand thith..."
She reached out to you and laid her gentle, warm hand on your forehead.
'What ith she doing oh my gog why ith she touching me.'
You felt embarrassed and you could feel your cheeks heat up, which is a little good since you were freezing like hell. She removed her hand from your forehead and you felt disappointed. You had liked her hand there...
"Aw, Sollux are you sick? You're not even wearing your glass-shade things..."
"Where's Karkat? Is he sick too or did he just leave you here?"
"No he'th fine. He went to go get thome more blanketth and thtuff for me..."
"Oh what a sweety he is~. But uh, well he left the door open."
"I can tell."
_____ took a step back and crossed her gracious arms, thinking for a moment.
"What do you have in your kitchen?"
She sighed at your terribly blunt answer.
"I'm going to make you something with whatever you got, 'kay?"
You watched silently as _____ walked out of your room to go make you something. After she had closed the door, you couldn't help but smile to yourself.
With all of your beast cooking skills, you whipped up hot water to make some herbal tea. You had added cloves and star anise to the hot water to make it healthier, and hopefully make poor Sol feel well. Since you knew how much Sollux liked honey, you totally put a crapload of the yellow sugary substance in his tea cup and mixed it. You left some hot water for KK, just in case he wanted some when he came back.
Taking the two steaming cups of tea -one for you, one for Sollux- you opened Sol's door again and placed his tea in front of him. He looked at it, and then you.
"It's tea. Drink it, it'll help you feel better."
Sollux observed his cup like it was a dead frog and then sniffed it. He obviously liked the smell, so he proceeded to dri- oh. Sol dropped his cup on the floor. The tea cup holding the precious healing fluids smashed on the numb ground.
"Sol, there was steam coming from that cup."
He looked at his cup, feeling guilty and retarded. You spent your time making that delicacy for him and he dropped his cup. It really smelled good too...
Sol raised an eyebrow as you perked your lips and began blowing into the tea you had made for yourself. He blinked several times when you actually put the edge of the cup to your mouth and tasted it repeatedly.
"Here, have mine. It's cool now, so you don't have to worry about it being too hot."
You handed your cup to him modestly and he accepted it with yellow cheeks. He was going to thank you but instead you intervened with a cute grin on your face.
"I'm going to clean up the mess you made Sol."
He nodded as you left to get the tools to clean the mess. He looked into the vessel you put your mouth on and inhaled the delicious aroma.
He drank from the cup to obtain the sweet nectar.
You finally finished cleaning the mess that Sol had accidentally made. You hadn't expected him to fall asleep when you came back from the closet though. You had moved him to his bed so he'd feel well sooner. Still, you looked at the peaceful, resting bundle of blankets on the bed.
'He's so cute when hes sleeping~.'
Your quick eye caught a glimpse of something though, a shiver. He was still cold, huh? A smile spread across your lips and you walked over to his bed.
'Might as well...'
You creeped into his cocoon of sheets and cuddled up to him. Sol nuzzled his head into the mysterious warmth, which happened to be the crook of your neck. Sollux's lips parted and he spoke a sweet, soft whisper.
Your eyes widened, and you smiled.
"You're welcome, Sol."
After you gave a secret peck on his forehead and huddled closer, your eyelids closed to rest.
Karkat had finally came back from the markets with a couple of bags full with blankets and shit. Damn it was cold outside, he wouldn't be surprised if he got sick too.
"Sollux!! HEY SOLLUX. I got the crap!!"
He placed the bags on the kitchen counter except for the covers and rested his eyes on the kettle which was still warm.
Karkat went up the stairs to Sol's room and opened the door. He saw a huge shit of sheets. But...then he saw two people. He walked closer. What's that thing? Oh, wait it's not a thing. It's _____. He shrugged.
'She must of came over out of boredom.'
He was about to leave. But next to Sol's computer chair. Was. A bucket. His eyes went huge like shit and he threw the bags of blankets at _____ and Sollux, waking them up, and pointed an accusing finger at them.
"EW, OH MY GOD YOU GUYS ARE FUCKING GROSS. I'M DONE HERE, GOODBYE."
He ran out of the room disgusted. He didn't even know that the bucket was innocent and only used for when you cleaned the tea Sol had spilled.
Way to ruin the mood KK.
