sing me to sleep
Four evenings Charles and Erik managed to get some rest in the midst of dark times, and one morning they have all the time in the world.
Happy My Birthday to you, internet!
Thanks, as ever, to pearl_o for letting me write most of this at her in email and for looking it over for me when it was done. Old Charles and Erik's relationship predictably made me so happy in DoFP, so I doubt this will be the last time I tell a part of their story ♥
Title from "Asleep" by the Smiths.
They take the Wolverine back to their house at Charles' insistence.
I don't want him there, Erik says, arms crossed as Charles drives them from the airport and across town.
Well, until we get a better base of operations, get used to it, dear, Charles says. We can't very well have this meeting at a Starbucks, now can we?
Erik sighs and hmphs out loud, which only serves to catch the Wolverine's attention from the back seat.
"Prof," he says, leaning up between them and peering at Charles wryly, "should my ears be burning?"
"An old fight, Logan," Charles says. "Nothing to worry about. I'll make sure he doesn't kill you in your sleep."
Erik rolls his eyes at the Wolverine's bark of laughter and stares mulishly out the window until they reach the house--secluded, unremarkable, ordinary. In another life, he imagined settling into a house like this with Charles for other reasons entirely. Today, he follows Charles and the Wolverine inside, where the floral papered walls are covered with video screens, blueprints, and maps and the tasteful, plush furniture has been shoved haphazardly into a corner to make way for tables piled with books and computers. The Wolverine takes it all in and whistles.
"This is serious," he says.
"It is," Charles says, staring up at him unwavering. Erik has nothing to add--there's nothing to add. It's the most serious thing any of them have ever dealt with before. He stands behind Charles and places his hands on Charles' shoulders. A united front. There were times he thought they'd never be on the same side again. He almost wishes he was right.
"Okay," the Wolverine says, looking them up and down slowly. "Start from the beginning."
It's a long story, especially starting from the beginning. The telling alone takes them late into the night, when Charles starts to repeat himself in his drowsiness and even the Wolverine is nodding off.
"We'll continue tomorrow, I think," Erik says. It makes Charles smile--in their youth, it was Charles who made sure they ate and drank and slept on time, while Erik was happy to work late into the night, until he dropped. These days, Erik takes Charles' second chance at life for the gift that it is and does his level best to make sure Charles stays healthy and alive for a long time.
"There's only one bedroom, I'm afraid," Charles says. "The sofa pulls out, if you move some of the tables around."
"Or you're welcome to gather some sticks and grasses and nest out back, of course," Erik says. The Wolverine snorts and Charles sighs.
"The couch is fine," the Wolverine says. "I've slept worse. Do you--" He pauses and frowns, then looks at the two of them again, eyes narrowed. "Wait, if there's only one bedroom--"
