Two Peas in a Pod : 3

"Ooh, that smells great."  Duo let Heero bat his hands away from the takeout bag and sat obediently back to watch.  The garlic naan came out first, and Heero set it down within reach, so obviously Duo had to pop the container and steal a corner to munch on.  The receipt fell out of the bag as Heero worked and Duo helpfully moved it to the side.  "You went here?  I thought we didn't like this place.  Service was crappy."

"It was just takeout, and it was on the way."

"There's other places on the way."

"But this is the only place on the way that serves spinach in a form you'll actually eat."  He took the lid off the container of saag gosht and set it down in front of Duo, along with another container of jasmine rice.

"Spinach?"  Duo took the plates Heero had taken out earlier and placed one on each side of the table.  "What are you trying to say?  If I'd had some more muscle on me, I wouldn't have gotten hurt?  This is a little after the fact, don't you think?"

Heero neatly folded the bag and put it on the kitchen counter.  "No, I'm trying to say you lost a lot of blood and I was worried."

Duo's hand went reflexively to the bandage decorating his temple.  "Aw, you know head wounds...."

"I was still worried," Heero responded quietly as he sat down at the table.

Duo shut up and ate his spinach.

Heero is a very thoughtful boyfriend. I'm glad Duo didn't give him too hard a time about eating the spinach.

Duo's lucky Heero only came back with spinach and not liver and the whole nine yards. =)

How Heero says 'I love you' without saying I love you; with spinach... :D

There are worse ways to say it. =D Liver and onions come to mind.  But a quick internet search reveals to me that dark chocolate is also reasonably high in iron, so maybe Heero dropped the ball on this one...

Heero couldn't stop him from getting hurt in the first place, but that doesn't stop him from doing what he can. ^_^

Spinach, of all things. Only Heero would say I love you with spinach. ^___^

I dunno, I could picture saag gosht! meaning I love you in Klingon or something... =)
