It’s unusual that Phil is up later than Dan, but tonight’s just one of those nights where sleep refuses to dawn on him.
It’s been taunting him too; he’s tired as fuckbut he can’t seem to settle down and sleep.
He gave up a few minutes ago, just laying on his back - eyes open - with a completely knocked out Dan on his chest.
Speaking of Dan, the man
has his cheek pressed just below Phil’s collarbones, his features
totally slack and his lips parted just enough to have breath flutter out
from between them.
Phil strokes a gentle
finger down Dan’s belly, basking in the silence of Dan’s room. All that
can be heard is Dan’s steady breathing, complemented by the hint of
snoring that Dan always denies he has.
After a few more minutes, Phil feels the traces of sleep begin to weigh his body down.
He subconsciously pulls Dan closer into him and his eyes slowly droop shut…
Phil peeks an eye open
to see Dan’s eyebrows scrunching, his face pulling into one of
discomfort. He shifts a little on Phil’s chest, the heat of his position
making Phil want to squirm.
He resists this urge,
instead bringing a tired hand up to Dan’s hair and slowly massaging his
scalp, hoping that will help calm his sleeping partner.
“Fffff… Don’t put- Phil.” Dan groans, a sleepy but unmistakable tone of annoyance in his voice.
Phil - too tired to
laugh at Dan’s unusual sleep talking - just shushes his boyfriend
softly, soothing him. “Shhh Dan, go to sleep.”
Dan squirms a little,
his nose pressing uncomfortably into Phil’s ribcage. “Clooooooose the
cupboards behind you, twat.” Dan slurs, the movement of his body creating
even more heat.
Phil almost has to kick the duvet off.
“The cupboards aren’t open. Gotosleep.”
It’s silent for a moment.
Phil’s body starts to relax back into the mattress again when-
“Wait, waht'er you- nah!” Dan crows, thrashing to the side abruptly and succeeding in smacking Phil in the left eye with a flailing arm.
Phil hisses and clutches for his eye, a long groan escaping him at Dan’s sudden hostility and garbled nonsense. “Dan!”
What the hellis Dan dreaming about?
Dan stills momentarily as Phil nurses his injury, not used to violence at 3:27am.
There’s quiet again and Phil can’t help but get his hopes up.
Slowly, his eyes droop shut…
“Mmm- Philllll, can you grab the mail?”
“Dan, it’s 3:34 in the morning; thereisnomail. Go to sleep.”
“Th'postman is here.” Dan argues.
“No he’s not.” Phil sighs in annoyance. “Please go to sleep.”
“Mail’s still sitting th- love you.”
With a long, exasperated release of breath, Phil guides Dan closer into his body. “I love you too, Dan. But - I’m begging you - please go to sleep. We’ll talk about this in the morning.”
And with that, a silence falls over Dan’s room once more.
It’s 7:42am when Phil wakes up.
He’s running off of three
and a half hours of sleep (considering it took him another half hour to
fall asleep after Dan’s last comment) as he stumbles down the hall and
to the table, following the smell of pancakes.
Dan glances over his shoulder from the stove as Phil trudges in sleepily. “Morning.”
Phil just grumbles, dropping his head into his arms on the table.
“Don’t need to be rude.” Dan jokes lightly, snickering to himself.
Phil - oddly enough - does not find this funny.
He’s pulled out of a temporary sleeping state when Dan places two plates on the table.
Phil jumps, startled, and Dan chuckles. “No sleep, huh?”
A low grunt is his only response.
Yes, Phil is grumpy. But - to be fair - he didn’t even get four hours of sleep because of a stupid argument over the mail.
There’s a comfortable
quiet at the table as they eat before Dan slowly speaks up. “I think the
mail came in this morning. After breakfast, could you go down and grab
Phil’s head shoots up and Dan recoils, almost falling off of his chair. “JesusChrist, Phil! What’s gotten into you today?”
“I do notwant to discuss the mail with you again.” Phil warns.
Dan just stares at him in bewilderment and confusion. “We never-”
“We did! Last night.”
“Phil, I have noideawhat you’re talking about.”
Phil stares at Dan long and hard, but Dan’s baffled expression doesn’t change.
With a heavy puff, Phil gets up and stalks downstairs to retrieve the mail.
Just the way he looks at her really worried then his face turns hard in anger as if seeing Amy hurt makes him feel even more determined to protect her. I’m so happy that we’re seeing more SonAmy proof in shows. I’ve adored this pairing since forever. I’ve never felt so happy, thank you sega for making SonAmy canon.
So let me start this story off by telling you all that we have a cat. Now I hate this cat, he showed up on our door step one stormy night as a kitten meowing and my sister decided to keep him and since that day he does nothing but meow nonstop until we give him attention. Now I don’t hate that he meows I hate that he an attention seekin ho because there’s only room for one of those at our house and dat me. Anyways let me get to the point of the story here. My whole family and I are sitting in the living room and the athans about to go off and I’m like coo, Imma go make wuduu pray and hit da sheets ON TIME tonight. But that little mother (it’s Ramadan so I’ll leave it at that) decides to meow at the door. Now normally I don’t give him the attention but my sister was like I’m a let this foo in maybe he trying to get some suhoor/Sehri before the athan too. Next thing I know she’s like “noooooooo” and so I turn to look at that son of a (again it’s Ramadan so imma hold myself back) had a live mouse in his mouth. Then he looked me straight in the eyes, I swear I ain’t making dis ish up, and I could see it he telekinetically told me “you ain’t gon sleep tonight ho” and when our eyes met we stared at each other for a good like 5seconds and I was like “ho don’t do it” the he drops this mouse out his mouth and I’m like “oh mah gawd” and it goes shooting behind my moms china cabinet. Anyways I jump up and I’m like “imma kill him imma kill em” but my sister holds me back and kicked him out the house. Now we got a live mouse in the house and me, my sister, my dad and my mom begin building a fortress around the china cabinet, half hour later a 1/16 size replica of San Quinten prison was built around the China cabinet and I was like lemme grab me BB gun and end this but first everyone put on these safety googles, so now we all staring into the fortress with saftey glasses on in Pajamas like guards on the outter prison walls but when my sister saw the mouse she’s like nah man just at him he just scared wanna go him so I’m like okay okay we’ll catch him and let him go. Now this mouse must have been masta splintah or some ish trained the ninja turtle in Kung fu and karate type of ish because Next thing I know this little biatch was jumping the high security walls of our prison and my dad sees it and now the whole situation is moving slo mo and I’m like “oh heeeeeeellll nawwwww” and my dad tries to push him back in but instead flings the mouse into my arms and I’m trying to catch him like a hot potato but he escapes my death grip like a wet bar of soap slipping out of a prisoners hands in the shower, crushing my soul and he made a hail marry run under the couch. So fast forward it’s now 2 hours after fajr and I’m on the floor crying like a 12 year old who went through there first breakup like “dis stupid cat, I hate him he planned this he knows I hate him, that PoS” thinking I’m going to have to blow up the house like they blew up the factory in the movie The Mouse Trap to get rid of it, but I digress and we now have San quinten 2.0 built around the couch bigger, taller, stronger and I’m like give me the gun God will understand…..but this little master splinter son of a climbed underneath the backside of the couch and beneath the throw and my mom was like “don’t you dare shoot a hole through the leather couch” and you know how Arab moms be about the furniture, she kill me before the bb even make it out the barrel. Long story short I was forced to trap him underneath the throw and release him alive and well outside.
I ain’t a killer but don’t push me. Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to getting pussy. Picture paragraphs unloaded, wise words being quoted.
Penitentiaries is packed with promise makers. Never realize the precious time the bitch niggas is wasting. Institutionalized I lived my life a product made to crumble. But too hardened for a smile, we’re too crazy to be humble.
Get a grip motherfucker.
