you look nervous.  do you ...  want to tell me something? 

paradisaeas

"i'm not explaining anything to you",  he says,  moments before explaining everything to me.  oh  –  / off /?  off ..  how?  how is she, by the way?

@paradisaeas,    oh  you  know  exactly  how  this  occurred.   i'm  not  explaining  anything  to  you.    (..)   i  went  to  visit  my  mother  and  she  insisted  something  looked  " off "  about me.

...i messed up.  don't give me that look.

@paradisaeas,    quite  frankly,   what  you   /need/  is  to  sleep  with  him  again.   clearly  it  did  some  good.     you look fully rested.

@paradisaeas,     /kaveh/.    look  at  me.   you  two  have  been  dancing  around  your  own  stubborn  egos  and  your  emotional  idiocy  for  the  better  part  of  the  last   decade.  you've  been  living  together  for  over  a  year  now,   playing the roles  of  akademiya  sweethearts  with  an  annoying  accuracy.   alhaitham  is  head  over  heels.   it's  obvious.

[ he eyes the futile attempt at taming his friend's ears,   which would be amusing if it wasn't in this context. ] what about him?  is he being weird again?  do i need to whack him?

@paradisaeas,      (    he  huffs  as  he  lifts  his  head  from  the  table,    swatting  once  at  his  ears  to  keep  them  from  drooping.   )     it's  that  stupid  matra.

[  the blonde frowns,  setting down his books to sit next to his friend. he purses his lips,  voice quiet. ]   do you want to talk about it?
