imagine laurent’s relief when damen woke up from his post-stabbing unconsciousness. I mean, laurent finally won against his uncle and then had to watch damen bleed out on the floor and lose consciousness like 15 minutes later!!
so seeing damen wake up has got to be the most relieving feeling in the world. damen wakes up to find laurent asleep against him and I bet he just reaches out to brush some hair out of laurent’s face. laurent wakes up immediately and as soon as he realizes that damen is awake, he sits up and grins, just resting his hands on damen’s chest to feel his heartbeat and make sure this is real, he’s okay, before realizing that damen is probably still in pain and he should check in on him before throwing himself at him. damen doesn’t mind though, he just lets laurent fuss over him, probably saying something stupidly nonchalant like “it’s not so bad” despite the fact that he was unconscious 5 minutes ago, and they just lay there for a while, in desperate need of a bath and some food and a long, deep nap, and they just cherish the fact that they’re safe and together and alive and in love and the relief is so heady that no amount of kisses can make it feel real but they try anyway
