Summary: Sometimes, Conrad saves Yuri from the little things...
Notes: Fluffier than intended. For torsui, original prompt was 'ways to serve'.
Sunlight poured in through the ancient windows of Covenant Castle's grand library one warm afternoon, providing plenty of light for the two men currently residing amongst the books.
Yuri wasn't looking for anything particular amongst the shelves, except perhaps a hiding spot from Gunter, who kept expertly conning him into 'just a bit longer'.
Finally, unable to stand one more trivial bit of Shin Makoku's history, Yuri mumbled something about an emergency bathroom break and guiltily fled.
He didn't even make it out of the corridor, however, without nearly running square into Conrad.
"What's wrong?" Conrad questioned, momentarily alarmed and glancing in the direction that Yuri had come from. "Anissina?"
"Gunter," Yuri replied quickly. "He thinks I'm coming back, but I think I'm completely out of room for new things in my brain today."
Conrad laughed. "He has your best intentions at heart."
"I know, but..." Yuri paused, looking for an excuse.
He didn't actually need one.
"Come on," Conrad said with a warm smile. "Some urgent business just came up."
"It did?" Yuri was momentarily confused.
"It did," Conrad replied as he reached to rest a guiding hand on Yuri's shoulder and lead him off away from the library. "Let's go. We'll figure out just what was so urgent when we get there."
Yuri couldn't help a little smile. Conrad was always watching out for him.
"Possibly in the kitchens?" Yuri questioned. Snacks were always urgent business.
