Some Assembly Required

Tom and Harley were just two random tourists in Tokyo. Back home, they led very different lives, but none of that really matters when a Japanese game show host forces you into matrimony for the sake of entertainment. Is this cooincidental marriage really all that ties them together? Or,mis there another way they're connected back home that could makes things really messy?

His room was so tidy. My room was a fire hazard.

He handed me a t-shirt and shorts, then left the room so that I could change. I reached for the zipper on my dress, but it was harder to pull down than it was to zip up. I had very few options to get it undone, and they were all embarrassing.

I opened the door and peeked out.

"I'm sorry, but could you help me with something?" I asked.

He stood from the sofa and crossed the room quickly.

"I can't get my zipper undone," I blushed. "If you could just get it started, that would be awesome."

He nodded and I turned around. He pushed my hair to the side and gently tugged the zipper down. I don't know why, but I got nervous and my heart started racing.

"How's that?" He asked, his voice catching in his throat.

I reached back to see if I could pull it the rest of the way.

"Perfect, thank you," I said and hurried back into the room.

I changed as quickly as possible, laying my dress neatly on the bed, then went back into the living room.

"Thank you," I said and sat on the sofa next to him.

"No problem," he smiled. "Would you like to watch a movie? Sometimes, when I can't sleep, it helps to distract my mind a little bit."

"That sounds nice," I agreed.

He turned on a really cheesy movie from the eighties. It had Chevy Chase and Demi Moore. Made zero sense. But, it was funny and required very little of my attention.

I found myself relaxing and leaning against him. And then his arm went around my shoulder. It was so warm and so comfortable. And then I sort of just drifted.

It was the best sleep I'd gotten in my life.
