A quick Duff/Izzy drabble.
“Sorry…It’s cold, I know…Just stay still, okay, Izz?”
“Why do you have to use that?” the brunette whined.
Duff smirked up at him. “What, do you want me to just push it in there, no preparation at all?”
“No…” Izzy averted his eyes. “But do you have to do it this way?”
“Sorry, it’s the only way I know how.” The blonde gave him an apologetic look. “Now get ready, I’m gonna push it in.”
Izzy steeled himself against the pain he knew was coming, even though Duff had done all he could to minimize it. He was gritting his teeth so hard that his gums were starting to hurt. His knuckles were white from the force with which he gripped the counter. His eyes were shut tight.
“Alright,” Duff said, catching the older man off guard.
“I-it’s in..?” Izzy asked.
The bassist rolled his eyes. “Yeah, it’s in.”
Izzy opened his eyes and looked in the mirror, then grinned when he caught sight of his new piercing. He turned back to Duff and wrapped his arms tightly around him. “Thanks for piercing my nose. You’re the best!”
