Isak has a toothbrush in hand and a mouth full of paste when he cant take it anymore, “I think there’s something wrong with Sana.”
He spits out the paste and feels a bit better. He’s no longer drowning in the information; in the lonely knowledge that Sana is spiraling. And Even would know what to do. He always does.
There is a squeak from right behind him and the sound of the shower fades off into drips. Even pokes his head out of the glass and nods when Isak reaches over to hand him a towel.
“Mmhmm. Like I asked her for biology help the other day and she just-” Isak wipes the rest of the white foam from his face, “She told me to understand that I was alone.”
“Du er ikke alene,” Even whispers, pressing a kiss to the back of Isak’s head as Isak frowns into the mirror. Even then promptly shakes his head like a dog and gets Isak all wet. Fuck him.
“I know that. But I don’t think she does anymore.”
“Have you tried talking to Noora or Eva?”
Isak shrugs and at Even’s pointed look, shakes his head. “Do you think it’s about my face? She kept glaring at my eye.”
Even switches on the faucet and grabs his own toothbrush, “Maybe she doesn’t like seeing her friends hurt.”
Isak considers this as Even brushes his teeth. When Even is spitting out toothpaste and wiping his face, Isak comes to his decision. “I think it’s more than that. I also think we should invite her over for dinner.”
“Okay,” Even says easily enough, “How about Friday night?”
Isak nods, a tad distracted at the thought, “Yeah. You think she’ll say yes?”
“I think the only thing you can do right now is reach out. Like you do best.”
Isak grins and throws his arms over Even’s neck, practically purring in delight when Evens’ lock around his waist, “Is that right?”
“Yeah, that’s right.” Even leans down and brushes against Isak’s lips.
“Awesome,” Isak disentangles them and heads for the bedroom, pulling Even along by fingers bunched up in a white sleep shirt. “And I’ll kindly ask that she leaves her brother at home.”
