    Summary

    Winter’s sun has risen, and Ben is still beneath the sheets when he blinks his heavy lids open. 

    There’s no sound, the usual soft breathing beside him absent, and the warmth replaced with a coolness that sinks so deep it’s chilling. London’s soft light is spilling in across the sheets, slanting into his eyes, stinging, enhancing the tiredness he feels. It takes him a moment to come to himself, still halfway stuck in the darkness of his troubled dreams.

    When he does manage to blink himself awake, he’s wet-eyed and hazy, and registers nothing but the empty half of the bed bedside him. He lays entirely still and swallows against the feeling of his skin curling, against the feeling of his body trying to turn itself inside-out. 

    Three days in a row.

    Summary

    Ben’s answering laugh is crystal clear, and it’s surprising that such a frequent sound can suddenly impact relief and content. “Whatcha’ gonna do, carry me over the threshold, bridal style?” His eyebrows waggle obscenely, and Callum has to school his face into an unimpressed façade.

    “Don’t tempt me.” He replies, although his attempted threatening tone falls unbelievably flat. Instead, he sounds hopeful, and the dopey grin settled on his features does not help his case.

    -

    Somehow, Callum has been put in charge of looking after Ben after his hospital discharge. Ben's just a bit horrified. His nurse thinks that Callum is his boyfriend, which is just a whole other thing.

    Summary

    And then of course there was the very awkward moment when Callum rather forwardly grabbed his overnight bag from the front porch after Ben had remarked that he was getting tired. He teased Callum for a good ten minutes about him making assumptions that Ben wanted him to stay, remarking that he thought Callum was “one of the respectable ones”.

    “I—I am...of course I am. It ain’t nothin’ like that, Ben, I just thought that…sorry I didn’t...I didn’t know whether we—“ Callum had stuttered, before Ben had cut him off with a kiss.

    It was nothing heated or suggestive, just a short, sweet brush of the lips.

    “I want ya to stay, you muppet.”

     
    ...Or, the one where the Mitchell's are on holiday, so Ben asks Callum round for a beer. ''Newly established boyfriends'' stuff ensues.
