A/N: inspired by this (and because pastel_jade was asking for it
1. You can steal their clothes
“Tao! Have you seen my –“ Kris paused in the doorway and smiled looking at his sleeping boyfriend. He carefully walked over to stare at his boyfriend curled up on his bed, wearing just his t-shirt and boxers. He had a sweatshirt thrown across him as a makeshift blanket but he could still see his boyfriend shivering.
He shook his head and reached out to gently shake the boy awake. “Tao, Tao, it’s time to get up.”
“Mmm…” Tao waved a hand lazily at Kris. “Just a little bit more…”
“No, baby. I have to get going and so do you. Plus I need my shirt back since I was planning on wearing that today.”
“Huh? What?” Tao opened his eyes and looked down. He flushed as he sat up and gingerly rubbed the sleep from his eyes. “Oh…uh…I-I’m sorry, Kris hyung. I-I just –“
Kris chuckled, placing a finger against Tao’s lips. “It’s alright, Taozi. I understand. You can borrow it for the day and I’ll find something else to wear.”
He pecked the boy on the lips before moving off towards his closet. It didn’t escape him the flushed cheeks as Tao slowly lifted the shirt to his nose and sniffed. He had to remember to buy himself another shirt later. His boyfriend had a knack for borrowing and never returning his clothes.
2. They have to give you their fries
“Hey~! Those were my fries, Taozi.”
Tao grinned triumphantly at him. “Not anymore.”
“Tao…” Kris looked at him.
Tao just smiled cheekily back at him as he munched on his fries. “Mmmm…delicious.”
Kris gave him a mock glare before sighing and turning back to his food. He smiled as he reached into his bag and took out the other bag of fries he had remembered to order. Of course, it wouldn’t be his fries for much longer once Taozi got through with his new bag. He smiled to himself as he continued munching on his burger, not even surprised when another set of hands reached into his bag of fries.
3. They look cute when they sleep
Kris rubbed his eyes as he took of his glasses. He had been working on his essay for the past few hours and he had finally finished. Of course, it was past midnight and he had to work to drag himself to bed.
As he opened his bedroom door, he found his boyfriend fast asleep, textbook still open beside him. He quietly chuckled as he walked over and closed the book, remembering to mark the page. He set in on his nightstand and carefully tugged his covers out from underneath the boy to cover him up.
He smiled looking down at the peaceful sleeping face of his boyfriend. He looked especially adorable, curled up and sleeping in one of Kris’ shirts again. He dropped a light kiss to his nose before heading off to get ready for bed.
4. If you’re sick, they still have to kiss you and then you can get them sick hell yeah
Kris blew on the spoonful of hot soup before holding it to his boyfriend’s lips. “Say ahh…”
Tao opened his mouth wide enough for Kris to stick the spoon in. He took a swallow and smiled gratefully at Kris. “Thank you, Kris hyung.”
“You’re welcome, now finish all the soup and then get some rest.” Kris smiled and dropped a kiss to Tao’s burning forehead.
“Hyung~!” Tao pouted up at Kris before pursing his lips. “Give me a kiss.”
“Taozi, you’re sick.”
“I want a kiss.” Tao pouted even more.
Kris sighed. “Will you go straight to sleep after I give you your kiss? And finish your soup?”
Tao smiled brightly. “Yes.”
Kris gave another little sigh before leaning down and pecking Tao’s lips. “There. Now finish your soup and go to sleep.”
The next day, Kris groaned when he felt his burning forehead.
“You know, you shouldn’t have kissed me yesterday.”
Kris glanced over to see Tao smirking at him, a tray containing a bowl of soup and some medicine in his hands. He groaned and pulled the covers over his head.
5. Free food
Tao smiled happily as he munched on some of Kris’ chips he had found in his pantry. Kris stared in slight horror at the mess that was the kitchen table. There were crumbs and wrappers everywhere. He walked over to his fridge and saw only a few items left. He opened up his pantry to find the same thing.
“Taozi~! Where’s all my food?”
“I don’t know but I think you need to go buy some more.” Tao licked some of the nacho cheese stuck to his fingers.
“I just went grocery shopping yesterday. How did all my food disappear?”
Tao shrugged. “I don’t know.”
Kris groaned and buried his head into his hands.
6. Hand on my butt
“Taozi…” Kris quietly growled. “What are you doing?”
“What?” Tao looked innocently up at Kris. “I’m not doing anything you haven’t thought about doing.”
“Taozi…let go of my hand.”
Tao pouted. “No. I have it right where I and you want it.”
Tao kept a firm grip on Kris’ hand resting on his butt. He was not letting go, no matter how much Kris wanted it. He knew Kris wanted this more. He had seen his boyfriend looking at his butt but he had always been too afraid to touch. His boyfriend tended to forget that he could look and touch. It reminded him of the days before they went out. But he still preferred the days when they did officially start going out.
There were so many perks to having a boyfriend and Tao was one for exploiting them all.
