Pairing: Adam Green/Carl Barât
Rating: No rating needed.
Author's notes: I just desperately needed something tender. So here we go. Sappy. Fluffy. As usual.
Warnings: As always: spellcheck on strike. And as I am a huge mess right now, there are probably mistakes everywhere. I am sorry about that. Oh, and the idea for this came from Adam telling Gero von Boehm that he sometimes feels so stressed out on a tour that he cannot sleep anymore.
Disclaimer: Probably happened exactly like this this very morning. It's great how I can lie without even blushing.
Carl has to smile looking at Adam lying in his bed, all curled up into himself, tightly clinging to Carl’s pillow; still sleeping soundly. He sits down on the edge of the bed and glances at the alarm clock sitting on the nightstand. Nearly noon. Adam has been asleep for thirteen hours straight. Carl sighs, his boyfriend had really needed a good nights’ sleep. Sometimes touring simply gets too much for him and stresses him out so much, he isn’t able to sleep anymore. Exactly this was the case on his last three dates during his latest tour through Germany, and not even sleeping pills were of help anymore like they usually are. Carl was appalled when he picked Adam up at the airport last night, his lover looked like he might drop dead any second. And he also was angry at Adam for not telling him about his lack of sleep when they talked on the phone the day before. Adam mumbled something about not wanting to worry him before collapsing into his arms, burying his head into his shoulder and more or less letting Carl hold him up on his feet. Carl’s anger vanished as quickly as it came and he took Adam home as quickly as possible and upon arriving at his flat put him to bed immediately, climbing in with him, holding him tight. He was asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. Carl lay awake a little longer just watching him sleep peacefully, tightening his hold on him.
Adam’s eyelids start to flutter and Carl runs a gently hand over his forehead, Adam opening his eyes slowly and blinking a few times at the sudden harsh light. Carl moves his hand to run it through Adam’s hair and smiles: “Morning, love.”
“Ohgod, how long did I sleep?”, Adam’s voice still sounds scratchy and rough from sleep. Carl leans down and places a lingering kiss on his boyfriend’s temple.
“Thirteen hours. And that was high time!” Still running his hand soothingly through Adam’s hair, who leans into the touch. “’m sorry for not telling you. I just didn’t wanna worry you, you know. You always worry too quickly, Carl. And as it was only one day left, I thought … “
Carl interrupts him. “Shhh, it’s okay. I am not angry anymore. I am just glad I have you here with me for three weeks now. That’s what’s important. Three whole weeks together.”, Carl grins. “I can pamper you for three whole weeks now. And have my wicked ways with you.”
Adam grins back. “That sounds brilliant, Carlos. But before you have your wicked ways with me could you maybe feed me? I am starving.”
Carl chuckles. “I can image. Let me order some Chinese for us. Enough time after that for seducing you.” He leans down again and drops a kiss on Adam’s forehead before getting up to order the food.
