It starts with them walking home one day. ‘Ferre wants to do an experiment on how people see same gender relationships in their little village and so they agree that they’ll hold hands every time they’re together for a couple of days.
You know, totally just for science.
Cut to a week later and they’re holding hands constantly, sitting on each other’s laps, cuddling during movies and their friends are wondering how long this experiment was actually meant to last for.
The strange looks they got for the first week start gradually disappearing as people get used to them.
They don’t notice how much more time they’re spending together until Marius asks Courf one day how they’re coping with being like a couple for so long. That’s when he realises that he might be a little bit in love with ‘Ferre.
Then they’re watching a movie one day, huddled under a pile of blankets and Courf decides to ask whether the experiment’s going to last much longer.
“’Ferre?” *blink blink* “’Ferre?”
“Well… I don’t know…”
Confused adorable puppy ‘Ferre looks at small kinda-smiley Courf and Courf just says “Fuck it” and kisses ‘Ferre so hard they both go dizzy but when he finally pulls away ‘Ferre’s right back in there.
The ‘experiment’ ends up including marriage and kids too.
