I promise to make it worth your while. I've definitely got a few things I'd like to work out.

Extensively.

[ ...huh. That's more inquisitive and less gutter-minded than- what was his name again? Matt? Merle? Max? She mostly just remembered he was a good lay and pretty damn uncomplicated. That was what she was looking for. ]

Just some work stress. Same as always.

[ More the tech company than the cape business but it was usually one or the other. ]

[ he's just making sure "working out some things" isn't code for "punch you in the face", but since he doesn't know this woman (is it a woman?) or her work, it probably isn't ]

and how can i help?
does it involve drinks and sex because i am very good at both
power_ful: (sideways (pb))

[personal profile] power_ful 2016-11-29 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
That's pretty much what I was coming to you for.

[ Well- ]

Mostly the sex.

Did you get that reinforced bedframe you were telling me about?

[ they should talk. charlie had said as much in the class room earlier and matteusz agreed, but now that they're home, miss quill off somewhere else with her gun and the ability to fire it, charlie doesn't know what to say or where to start. he feels — he feels hurt, but at least the walls are no longer closing in around him. he's no longer trapped, but his chest still feels too tight, like there is a band around it that squeezes and squeezes, making it difficult to take a deep breath.

they should talk. so charlie opens his mouth and says the first thing that comes to mind, which is ]
Matteusz — [ and he doesn't know how to continue. he knows that he is showing far more weakness and emotion than befitting a prince, but this is not rhodia and he is not prince here, at least not if his friends are to be believed. he is too princely for them still, and too stupid, not knowing how things work on this planet.

that hurts, too, but not as much as knowing that matteusz is afraid of him. ]

[ He'd kept his distance, since the room came back into the world and Ms. Quill saved Charlie. He'd been there, sure, there's nowhere else he'd go, even if he could, but he'd remained apart from Charlie, hovering on the periphery of the room, walking down the sidewalk a step behind.

He knew his confession had hurt Charlie. Charlie who loves and loves and is never afraid. But he can't run from the fact that it was truth. Neither of them can. ]


Yeah. [ He steps in now, awkard but not hiding, not running. His hand reaches out, finds Charlie's, if he'll let it. Because after Charlie defeated the entity, when the rock was trying to claim him as its new prisoner, Matteusz had realized what he hadn't been able to put into words up until then.

Yes, Charlie scares him. But the idea of losing Charlie scares him even more. ]

Okay, but if your bed breaks again, I'm still not paying for it.
partiers: (007)

[personal profile] partiers 2016-11-29 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
we could just do it on the floor
or against a wall
power_ful: (oh?)

[personal profile] power_ful 2016-11-29 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
...classy.

I could do wall.


[ ...she'd have to be careful with the wall. No give like the mattress had. ]
partiers: (005)

[personal profile] partiers 2016-11-29 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
you're classy

[ #greatcomeback ]
power_ful: (bzuh?)

[personal profile] power_ful 2016-11-29 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Damn right I am. Glad you remember.

I wanted to head over in a couple of hours.

Where's your place again?

[ charlie has been keeping his distance, too, shoulders hunched inward and his arms crossed or one of them wrapped around his middle. he doesn't realise how defensive the posture is, or that it might make it more difficult for matteusz to approach him. he wants matteusz to approach him, and at the same time, he doesn't. matteusz is afraid of him, that thought keeps playing in his mind.

but matteusz reaches for charlie's hand, and charlie unfurls his arms so that matteusz can take it, letting their fingers tangle together. he still can't bring himself to look at matteusz, though. he should. he should be stronger than this, but he isn't. not when matteusz has been his rock and guiding force, when he's so lost and the person who'd promised to find him is afraid of him. ]


Yes? [ he asks, a little uselessly. ]
partiers: (009)

[personal profile] partiers 2016-11-29 10:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[ he attaches the address — and a selfie, since winn taught him how to take those ]

so i'm thinking i'm not who you meant to text
but you can still come over if you want
power_ful: (sideways (pb))

[personal profile] power_ful 2016-11-30 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
Okay, you're not. But you're actually cuter? And National City is way more convenient.

Still good for in an hour?


[ and she sends a photo of herself fluttering a wave at the camera ]
partiers: (011)

[personal profile] partiers 2016-11-30 09:02 am (UTC)(link)
definitely still good
you kind of remind me of someone though
do you know a kara?
power_ful: (wide eyes (pb))

[personal profile] power_ful 2016-11-30 12:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Why?

[ Yes, Mon-El, the answer is emphatically yes. ]
kochany: (06)

[personal profile] kochany 2016-11-30 03:22 pm (UTC)(link)
[ It hurts Matteusz, to see Charlie looking so lost. They can't continue like this, walking on eggshells. Whatever they've been hiding needs to come into the open. ]

We should talk. [ Which sounds like the worst thing he could possibly say. He winces, continues, ] I want to talk. I don't want you to be upset.

[ The hand not holding Charlie's seeks out Charlie's cheek, thumb brushing over his jaw. ]
