Say My Name / Cry Me A River
The Neighbourhood

I won’t let you say I’m assuming things
If something’s going down, that’s the way it seems
It shouldn’t be the reason why you actin’ strange
Yeah, nobody’s holding you back from me
‘Cause I know how you usually do
When you say everything to me times two
Why can’t you just tell the truth
If somebody’s there, then tell me who

16 and 8 for the fix thing

I’ve uploaded one for 8 (The floor is lava) here

16. Cry me a river.

Robert jolted awake with the force of Aaron’s foot connecting with his shin.

“Uh?” he called out in his sleep-drenched confusion.

“Your turn,” Aaron mumbled, barely audible as he spoke into his pillow, all sound drowned out by the screaming coming from the room next door.

Robert sighed and rolled onto his back.

“I did the last one,” Robert protested weakly, eyes still glued shut with sleep. “I’ve got to go to Leeds…tomorrow…for work –”

“Cry me a river, Robert,” Aaron muttered quietly, taking his pillow and folding it around his head to drown out the sound of Oliver’s crying. “I was up four times with him last night and woke up for work at half five. You sort it.”

Robert sighed; knowing full well his husband had a point. He hadn’t exactly been pulling his weight recently, especially seeing as it hadn’t been long since he’d had to work away for a whole three nights, leaving Aaron quite literally holding the baby.

He lay there for a few more seconds – willing Oliver’s screams in the next room to cease all by themselves – until Aaron kicked his shins once more and he relented, hauling himself up to sit on the side of his bed and slide his feet into his slippers.

“Fine, ok!” he conceded as he pushed himself up off the bed and stumbled out of their bedroom.

A few minutes later the crying stopped, and Aaron could hear Robert singing sweetly to their son in the next room.

He smiled to himself, before succumbing to sleep himself, sated by his husband’s gentle lullaby drifting down the hallway.
