"What's this?" Scotty asks, leaning over the big plastic bag Kevin put on the floor when he entered the loft.
"Some new pillows," Kevin answers casually.
"You're really on a shopping spree, aren't you?" Scotty asks, peeking at the colorful fabrics of the new pillows.

"Well, you know. I haven't really put that much time and effort into making this place look decent lately, and now that you're here..." Kevin says, not finishing the sentence. He didn't really know if he would be able to tell Scotty that it was because of him that he suddenly felt the need to buy new stuff throw out old stuff and clean the whole place.

"That's nice," Scotty says. "I know I can't shop because I have no money, but I like new things. Too much." He squeezes the pillow Kevin hands to him. "When I have money I tend to find and buy stuff I don't need."
"You?" Kevin asks, entertained. "The most practical man walking on the face of Earth?" He gives Scotty a kiss on the cheek. "I can't believe it."

It's only been two weeks since the lobster and the whole Jason story and it wasn't until a few days ago that Scotty decided he would stay in the apartment. He hadn't thought it would be a good idea to start a new relationship with Kevin living with him, but being the practical man he is, he knows he can't afford anything else, and he knows that they have both grown, relationship wise.

"I love this one," Scotty says, holding up a blue pillow with some shiny green fabric on it. "Where will these live? There are already many pillows both here and in the bed. We need room for us, you know."
"Maybe we should throw some old ones out. This has seen better days," Kevin says, holding up a plain green one from the couch.

"Do I dare suggest moving Liza? You don't let me use her to sleep on anyway," Scotty says.
"Move?" Kevin asks.
"To more of a place of display, like the window?" Scotty suggests, knowing that the subject of Liza is thin ice.

"I don't know. I like having her here," Kevin says. Scotty smiles behind Kevin's back. Kevin is if anything practical and concrete. The fact that he refers to a pillow as her instead of it is remarkable.

"Maybe we should get new pillows and duvets for the bed as well," Kevin says. "And some new kitchen equipment. The stuff I have now is what mom gave me when I moved away from home. We need some new stuff for your cooking. Better stuff," Kevin finishes and sits down on the couch, leaning against the mountain of new pillows, as if to see if they are good enough.

"I'll take you shopping tomorrow, honey," he says and gives Scotty another kiss on the cheek before leaving for the bedroom.
"Sure, I'd love to," Scotty says when Kevin leaves. "I'd love to go on a nesting shopping trip," he adds, quietly.

"What?" Kevin asks from the bedroom.
"I'll make some pasta," Scotty calls back, chuckling to himself as he enters the kitchen.
