Not exactly the homecoming I was expecting.

Ju was beat when he got home. Not for the first time he vowed that when he was out from under his contract and a freelancer, he was never going to work for that asshole again no matter how much money he was offered. What should have been wrapped up in a couple of days turned into a week of torture. All he wanted to do was snuggle up with his wife and sleep for a few days straight. He looked up at the dark house and then his watch. It was late but still too early for Aya to be in bed unless she’d had a hell of a day. He went in through the shop and stored his gear then headed up the stairs. He noticed that Yoichi wasn’t in and figured the man had finally found some friends to hang out with. He also noticed that the mustang and the bike were both in the garage. He sighed figuring that his baby was just as beat as he was and probably wouldn’t be too happy about him waking her up to whine. He walked up the stairs and into the living room.

On the floor were his wife and his son,a bowl of popcorn between them, both with control panels in their hands, with Aya squealing as she ducked and dodged attacks launched by Yoichi. Yoichi let out a few choice words when he didn’t dodge a couple of hers. He just stood there with a smile on his face, glad they were getting along. His smile faltered somewhat when Aya raised her hands in triumph and Yoichi tackled her and started tickling her. She tried to get away but he grabbed her by the waist and tickled her some more. They were rolling around on the floor and laughing so hard that neither of them noticed Ju standing there. Once the fits of laughter had subsided, they stretched back out on the floor and picked up the panels again. Yoichi reached over Aya to get the popcorn and Ju frowned at how familiar he seemed to be crawling over his wife. He cleared his throat which caused Aya to yip and jerk up just as the popcorn was within range of her hand. She hit the bowl and popcorn sailed everywhere which occasioned another round of laughter from her. If Ju didn’t know better he’d swear she had been drinking.

She got off the floor still giggling softly and carefully stepped around spilled popcorn till she reached her husband. She wrapped her arms around his waist and tilted her head up for a kiss which Ju gave her. “Hey baby. I didn’t expect you until tomorrow. Things must have been bad for you to leave early. Hungry? I can heat up some leftovers for you. Yoichi cooked this evening.” Yoichi for his part, was busy picking up popcorn. He stood and waved at his dad. Ju nodded at him and told Aya that he was starving. Yoichi told them he’d heat something up and for Ju to go unwind. He’d handle dinner. Ju thanked him and he and Aya headed to their bedroom.

He sat down on the bed and watched as Aya began to unpack his bag. “You two seem to be getting along well.” Aya nodded. “We’ve been talking and getting to know each other. I took him to the bar a couple of nights and he taught me how to cook a few things. He’s not as bad as I thought. I’m sorry I didn’t trust him. He’s more like you than I would have thought. Enough about him. How are you doing? You look so tired.” She finished unpacking then sat down next to her husband who promptly placed his head on her shoulder. She stroked his hair and waited for him to talk.

Ju loved it when she did that. He was like a small child needing comfort from the boogy man. “That man has issues baby and he’s worn me out.” He sat up and looked at her. “You and Yoichi seem to be getting along just fine. I’m glad…I think.” Aya looked puzzled. “Why I think?” Ju shrugged. “He’s young and impressionable especially right now with being in a new place and no mom and all. I don’t want him to mistake affection for something stronger. It could lead to problems.”

Aya looked exasperated. “Ju. You can’t have it both ways. First you tell me to get closer to him. Now you say not too. Make up your mind please.” Ju pulled her to him and nuzzled her neck. “It’s just I know how irresistible you can be. I don’t want him succumbing to your feminine wiles.” Aya just huffed at that and leaned her head to the side so he could nibble at her neck easier. When his hands started roaming she looked at him. “I thought you were tired.” He gave her a lecherous grin before pouncing on her. “I’m never too tired for that.” Aya just giggled and shook her head before giving him a kiss that made him glad he had a little energy left. Outside their door, Yoichi pulled his ear from the door and smiled. The first seed had been planted now all he had to do was be patient and help it grow.
