    Summary

    “So if you don’t think you’re up for getting Jayson a gift, that’s fine,” Patrick says with a shrug. “But I guess you’ll have to forfeit your title of Ultimate Gift Giver.”

    David’s jaw drops even as his husband’s expression stays precisely neutral, and nope. This isn’t how it’s supposed to go.

    Summary

    Patrick doesn’t respond correctly - because Patrick has never once responded correctly to David being horrible. He just takes another sip of tea, and fucking smiles again. 
    “What?” David snaps.
    “Nothing, I just-”
    He stops, mouth still open, sound still somewhere in his throat. Then he laughs again. It’s quieter this time, more to himself, like he’s surprised himself with it. It’s infuriating, and it’s adorable, and David doesn’t get it. 

    Or, five times Patrick almost said "I love you", and one time David said it first.

    Summary

    "This isn't some sort of competitive thing, right? Like I put together your surprise birthday party and now you feel like you somehow need to beat me with surprises?" David asked nervously, glancing to look at Patrick again. Patrick had been driving them for about an hour, and David still had no idea where they were headed, just that it was a surprise weekend.

    *

    Patrick takes David away for a weekend getaway. It's not as bad as David thinks.
