Summary: It's enough to wake up.

Glenn shifts sleepily as the warm sunlight spills in from between the blinds. Mark's arm tightens around his waist briefly before relaxing again. Glenn slowly blinks and sighs stretching as best he can without disturbing Mark. Mark murmurs softly, curling closer to Glenn when Glenn makes to get up. Glenn smiles and carefully slips out from under Mark's arm. Mark rolls into the space Glenn left behind, one hand curling around Glenn's pillow.

He turns and heads into the bathroom. He finishes up in there and goes into the kitchen to make a fresh pot of coffee. He knows Mark will get up when he smells the coffee and breakfast cooking. Glenn rummages around in the refrigerator, pulling out eggs, bacon, sausage, and milk.

He starts making breakfast and sure enough, Mark wanders in, still half asleep as he wraps his arms around Glenn's waist, leaning his chin on Glenn's shoulder. He presses a kiss to the side of Glenn's neck and then just leans against him as Glenn flips the last pancake onto his plate.

Glenn manages to pour two cups of coffee and fix them to their preferences with Mark half asleep against him. Mark reaches around him and snags his cup, shifting over to lean against the counter and sip at his coffee. He hums in delight as the caffeine starts to wake him up.

Glenn sets the table and Mark follows, taking the seat across from Glenn. They eat in silence as Mark attempts to wake up more and Glenn reads the newspaper, passing the sports to Mark, who hums his thanks. Mark's not really verbal until at least his second cup of coffee.

Sometimes waking up together is enough for them.

Such a nice little slice-of-life fic. I loved it!

Thank you! Glad you liked it!

I loved it. I love all your fic. At this rate, I'm going to have to make a separate folder for you in my memories, lol.

(And if I ever start sounding creepy or stalkery while I'm drooling over your fic, just say something. It's just not very often that I genuinely fangirl another writer's work like this.)

No, I don't think you sound that way at all! :D I really love your feedback.

Actually, I've been meaning to ask this for a while, but I didn't want to seem like a giant weirdo or anything, but would you mind if I friended you? If you don't want me to, that's fine. It's just rare to find another fan of wrestling who ships U/K like I do. :)

I wouldn't mind at all!

animanga_maniac is my personal journal. This is my fic journal. You're more than welcome to friend both but just be warned that all I tend to post under nochick is porn fic and general nerdy fandom things. :-)

Added both! Yay, thank you!

Now to figure out what I'm doing with this fic.

Added back!

I'm sure you'll figure it out just fine. :-)

Also: I broke down and made an Undertaker icon (I wanted something with the hat; I HAD to have the hat). The obsession is growing, lol!
Lady Strange: BODsynnerxx on July 9th, 2013 08:47 am (UTC)
Yay! \o/

I sure hope so. It's over 8k. /sobs

That's an epic icon! I'll probably be making some soon myself. :D

Just re-reading some of your stuff. I've missed your stories!
