    Summary

    "Martin?" He hears Jon call from the kitchen. The sound echoes in his head, bounces off the walls of his skull and distorts with every collision until it is nothing but static, white noise, white foam clinging to his thighs as he stands in the ocean.

    Left the kettle on, Martin realizes somewhat distantly. The shrieking had stopped a while ago, but the hob was likely still on, heating a kettle full of nothing for an empty house. Sometimes, Martin wonders if Jon feels like he lives with a ghost. There's irony somewhere in there, but Martin's too tired, too cold to try to find it.

    Summary

    Jon sighs and shakes his head again. “I don’t know how to—I found a tape, Martin, that’s all, and there was some, uh—god, does it really matter, Martin? Can we just—just keep on, keep taking statements and you can tell me what you actually came in here to talk to me about and—”

    “It really doesn’t matter what I came in here for; I’m worried about you now.”

    Jon shoves his hair back with one of his trembling hands, head dropping so Martin can’t see his eyes anymore, and that’s not right at all. “Don’t be.”

    Summary

    They both, at the same time, link their fingers together over the spare seat in the taxi - but that only lasts for a few seconds before Martin has to pull away, nervous and overwhelmed. Jon's already withdrawing his own hand, rubbing it unconsciously as he does so like Martin's touch has left some kind of physical mark. Watching him, the mindlessness and intensity of his movement, Martin finds it very hard to breathe.

    ———

    There’s a conversation that Martin and Jon need to have after the Lonely. Unfortunately, they are - historically - fairly terrible at putting stuff into words.

    Summary

    How is Martin supposed to tell Jon that he panicked, stupidly, when the lovely old lady down the village asked him what they were doing in this part of the world? Got the shopping! Oh, by the way, we're married now! Whole village thinks we're on our honeymoon, hope you don't mind!

    Summary

    Martin cooed in sympathy. "Tired, are you? Of course you are." As though he hadn't taken half of Jon's weight all day, as though he wasn't literally carrying Jon right now. "I could wash you, if you like."
