You Ever Get That Feeling?
  • Harry is sitting at the head of the table, checks his watch. 5 minutes till the meeting. Eggsy shuffles into the room, looking disgruntled as only someone ridiculously uncomfortable could be, and plops onto chair next to Harry clutching his head.
  • Eggsy: Urrgh...
  • Harry: Good afternoon, Eggsy.
  • Eggsy: s'not.
  • Harry: Feeling under the weather?
  • Eggsy: If by under the weather, you mean having my head be savaged by an invisible poltergeist, then yeh Harry, I'm under it. I'm 20 thousand leagues under it. How'd you know?
  • Harry: You're in Merlin's chair.
  • Eggsy: *groans and buries his face in his folded arms on the table*
  • Eggsy: ....Fuck, why do bloody headaches gotta be so bad?
  • Harry: *tuts with concern* are you sure it isn't a migraine?
  • Eggsy: I dunno...does a migraine try to push your eyeballs outta your skull every time you inhale?
  • Harry: Ah. That sounds like a tension headache.
  • Eggsy: *peeks over his forearm with a squint* Izzat a good thing?
  • Harry: Well, as a matter of fact...*stands up and begins taking off his suit jacket, folding it over his chair*....it is.
  • Eggsy: Why're you stripping? Not complaining, or anything, but the others are on their way.
  • Harry: The good thing about having a tension headache, Eggsy, is that you can relieve the tension, and therefore the headache. Sit up.
  • Eggsy: *sits up slowly with a wince*
  • Harry: Now just relax.
  • Harry starts giving Eggsy a scalp massage. Takes a while, but Eggsy slowly relaxes into the seat, his head resting against Harry's stomach a little from the tension leaving his neck. He looks much younger than his 25 years now that he's not scowling, though still so tired. His mouth is even opening a little from how relaxed he is, which makes Harry smile.
  • Merlin comes into the room but stops short, observing them unnoticed at the door for a while, before closing the door quietly behind him. He sends a meeting re-time to the Kingsmen, just because.
