"Read to me?" Charles asks and smiles happily when Erik’s lap shifts under his head as he reaches for the nearest book. Erik settles back against the pillow with a sigh.
"Out loud or?" Erik asks fondly, free hand stroking Charles’ hair.
"Out loud please," Charles says happily and presses into Erik’s hand, curling closer to Erik and tugging the blanket up to his shoulders. Charles lets his mental barriers down just enough to curl into the comforting warmth on the edges of Erik’s mind.
Erik’s voice is quiet and soft and calming as he reads and it fades into white noise, background to the sleepy warmth uncurling through Charles’ body. He lets his eyes drift shut, the rise and fall of Erik’s voice, the familiar calm way his brain takes apart the words, the soft feeling of Erik’s fingers stroking his hair all wrap around him as he falls asleep.
