[ work smart, not hard - open ]
« on: November 03, 2019, 10:34:49 PM »

if there was one thing the self-proclaimed “people-smart” man knew, he liked to think it was that people could easily be won over with gifts. whether it was big or small, so long as a person seemed to take effort in making them feel cared about and wanted, then they didn’t care. it made them happy. it won them over. perhaps that was why roman had decided to pick up one of the chores off the list, and go trade around at a neighboring group. he was damn good when it came to trading, persuading people to give him one thing in exchange for practically nothing. this only proved the fact as he wandered into town, a bag of loot over his shoulder.

“alright,” he hummed shortly, sliding the bag off of his shoulder with a deep sigh. “i got a few things for everybody. some food, some trinkets… everyone take a look around.” he made the announcement as he began setting things up in little categories; there were some fruits, some canned goods, some kids toys and more. really, roman liked to think he did a good job at this, and really worked his ass off for the group. hopefully this would all pay off in the long run. or even make himself feel a bit more accomplished. ever since… everything went to shit, basically, he hadn’t felt like himself. hadn’t felt useless. perhaps this would start the process of him slowly getting better. in the meantime, he simply placed his hands on his hips and step back, observing the nearing people.

      If there was one thing Kronos knew, it was that he liked gifts. Materialistic in his own right and proud of such fact, Kronos' heart followed any goods that he could acquire because the sensation of momentary happiness was thrilling. He was easily impressed (come on - the sound of his own echo and a damn taxidermy cat had him reeling with excitement) and it seemed like everybody knew this at this point.

Upon seeing Roman returning, Kronos' eyes lit up with eagerness. Oh - this was going to be fun. ❝ Hey, man! ❞ He squeaked eagerly - probably not the most appropriate term of endearment towards somebody he'd only just begun to romance... Oh well.

He popped his hip to the side as he pursed his lips, scratching through the goods and maybe taking one too many things to not be seen as selfish, gasping before cradling one item in particular. ❝ I've been dying for one of these beauties! Muah! Gorgeous! ❞ He raised his brows, dropping the rest of his stash by his feet before holding the peach up into the air.

being called “hey man” by a love interest was… honestly why was roman even trying to act surprised at this point. his gaze flickered over towards kronos as he strode over, looking far too excited to go rummaging through the goods. he huffed a short breath. “sorry; they were all out of taxidermy cats.” he was sure kronos would find something that piqued his interests, though.

of all the things he pictured kronos to be excited about, the last thing he expected was.. a peach? … no seriously, why was he even trying to be surprised by this turn of events. he rose a brow, then remarked, “a peach, really?” guess peaches were something that rome had taken for granted all this time. watching kronos hold one up in the air like it was some damn godsend made him feel that way, at least.

“there’s plenty where that came from. i could always get you more if you liked.”

but at least ro would constantly try and impress kronos. always.

      Kronos snickered to himself at Roman's comment on taxidermy cats. Whilst sweet Pookie was gone with the wind, Kronos could now only look forwards. And that meant no more grief and heartache over a cat that'd already been dead for a number of years. Hey, maybe someday he'd find a real life Pookie and cherish her more than ever.

Some would say that he was easily impressed (and maybe he was) but he would vouch for the fact that he purely appreciated the more simple things in life. That was not to say that he didn't appreciate the complicated things in life, too, else liking Roman would be out of the picture. ❝ Uh, yeah. ❞ Kronos insisted; adding, ❝ When have you last seen me eat one of these?! Yeah, that's right! Even I've forgotten and I'm the bastard eating them all! ❞

But, besides all rambling, Roman would still be nice to Kronos. The offer sent him reeling; oh, this man couldn't possibly get any better than this! ❝ What?! You'd do that for me? ❞ Consider this feeling the feeling of loooove.

Was it love? Probably not?

Would Kronos convince himself otherwise?

Duh.

kronos adored the simpler things in life. usually roman would see that as too much of a drag; boring, even. however, it was different with kronos. his appreciation for it made it seem all that much better. whether it be a taxidermy cat or a peach, kronos seemed so enamored with it- and that, honestly, was fucking adorable.

the corner of his lips twitched at kronos’s insisted words. “you’re ridiculous. you know that?” it was the most affection that could’ve ever peaked through his usually monotone voice. the rambling was annoying, a headache, really - but maybe roman liked the persistent headache that was kronos.

“of course i would,” he responded quickly, watching kronos seem so elated that rome would get peaches for him. god damn it; literally the smallest of things made kronos happy, and rome hated the happiness it made him feel. he straightened and took a few steps closer to kronos. “you’d have to split them with me, though.” he really didn't; however, just to pick at kronos a little wasn't the worst thing in the world.

      Hell yeah, Kronos adored the simpler things in life. He loved himself for instance, but only for some of the time. Painfully simple, maybe to some a lost cause. But, he was a lot more than that, and maybe Roman saw that chaos in him. The utter carnage of disorganization and wit and obnoxiousness. Even the mere fact that Kronos would never take a single thing for granted, observe with dazzling eyes as if each and every thing was treasure to him.

Kronos' brows fleetingly bunched together at Roman's words, a strange sense of... kindness lacing the words. That guy was always so impassive, that words as simple as thing sounded like heaven to needy ears. ❝ Thank you. ❞ Kronos purred, scrunching up his nose. ❝ Thank you very much. ❞ Now that was an impressive Elvis impression if Kronos had ever heard one before (he hadn't).

When Roman stepped closer, Kronos raised his brows and cocked his head to the side. ❝ Split them?! Sure, I'll take nine and you can take the tenth. ❞ He teased with a shit-eating smirk on his lips. ❝ Unless you have a problem with that? ❞ Kronos' playfulness was the sort that'd induce a lifelong cringe, and yet he welcomed it with a comforting ease.
