"I was going to leave him anyway, it stings how we can never hold a conversation. I'd much rather have you, you can speak and everything."
Cam joked and laughed, and smiled when Kal kissed him. Cam happily kissed back, and afterwards grinned and chuckled.
"And you can do that."
Kal's suggestion made lit up Cam's face, and he nodded excitedly.
"That sounds awesome. But are you actually saying I need to hug a pillow? What's the use of a hot boyfriend when I can't snuggle him?"
Cam fake pouted, but he couldn't keep it up for long. Cam smiled bit goofily and wrapped his arms around Kal's neck and have him a hug. After that he sat up, finally freeing Kal's arm from under him, and pretended to roll up his sleeves.
"Let's get to it then. The faster we get to your place faster we can get lazy and I can try to talk you into braids."
Cam laughed a bit, and reached for his prosthetic.
In reality, Cam was very much aware of the possibility of meeting Lyrseir, and that made him feel like a nervous wreck. Outside Cam kept it together though, no use in panicking now, or yet.
And he could do that kissing thing. As many times as Cam wanted him to. Kal wasn't afraid of being close. As long as it didn't bother the other person, and it clearly didn't bother Cam, he was fine with it.
He laughed at Cam's pouting face and was about to poke him in the lip when he broke the act and wrapped his arms up around his neck. As Cam sat up and began getting ready to pack up their stuff Kal snickered. "By the way, how do you know the pillow I was referring to wasn't actually me anyway?"
As Cam put his leg back on Kal set about packing up the rest of the stuff and putting his shoes on. "Alright Cam, you ready to leg it on back to the Spa?" He hefted his own bag onto his back and went to pick up both boards. If they hadn't had all the stuff he would have have just offered to fly with Cam. But two surfboards and their bags would make that too unwieldy.
Cam raised a brow at Kal and leaned over a bit to poke him om the stomach, snickering.
"Then be more specific. If you're the pillow then what's the mattress and blanket?"
Cam laughed and attached his prosthetic back, and also dug out a new hair tie and put his hair back on a ponytail.
Cam pushed himself up and swiftly put on his shoes and packed his own stuff, including the sushi that there was still a lot left. They could just put the rest in Kal's fridge.
Cam heaved the bag over his shoulder and turned to grin at Kal.
"There's snuggling and food waiting, so hell yes. Gimme my pickly steed."
Cam would go over to Kal and try to take the other board under his own arm. And if he succeeded in this Cam would take Kal's free hand in his and grin.
"I wanted to walk at least part of the way like this. Would you give me a hand?"
Kal had been assuming he'd just carry all the stuff he'd brought rather than asking Cam to carry more. He knew he could handle it. But then Cam had moved to take the second board and Kal didn't really have a good reason to say no.
As it turned out, not saying no was the correct answer as Cam linked hands with Kal after picking up the board. If he'd been stubborn and insisted on carrying them both then he would have really missed out. "This hand? Sure, it's yours for as long as you want it Cam. We can walk the whole way back like this if you want."
It was nice being able to hold Cam's hand. Soft and strong. It would take something like a full blown tsunami to knock him off cloud 9 at that point. He was pretty sure that happiness was going to linger for quite a while as they began heading back to the Spa and Kal's apartment.
