Raen shook his head quickly and gave a small shrug, “No, yeah, I’m not judging anyone’s decision to get a service alpha. I can understand the desire to… not have to spend heat alone. I just personally wouldn’t enjoy it, unless I already knew the alpha and had a connection with him.” He gave an awkward little smile, resting his head on Roman’s shoulder so he wouldn’t have to look at him. And maybe Roman wouldn’t notice his embarrassment – Raen didn’t want to seem like a blushing teenager who didn’t know how to handle talking about sex.
He tilted his head to look up at Roman though, when the other seemed uncomfortable with the arrangement of him going to a hotel for his heat. “I’ve done this before, you know”, he said with a raise of an eyebrow, “I mean, it’s not a big deal. But we can talk more about it later.” He didn’t want to start arguing about it now, there was plenty of time to decide on what to do before his heat after all. Saved by the doorbell, Raen hurried to the door and greeted the person delivering their food. Having already paid for it, Raen took the bags and thanked the man before closing the door again.
“I’ll just have water”, he replied happily, stomach growling with demands for food, “God, I’m starving.” It was a little early to be having take-out and watching a movie, but Raen wasn’t really complaining. With his food on a plate and a glass of water in hand, Raen made himself comfortable on the couch again.
“This is nice”, he murmured close to Roman’s ear, smiling as he secretly indulged himself just a little in the other’s scent, “I can’t remember the last time we watched a movie together like this.” He practically burrower himself in as close to Roman’s side as he could manage and made a happy sound in the back of his throat at the taste of his food as the movie started.
