you’ll just write the fic for it and we’ll all be happy :P
As prefect, Logan was obligated to stay at Stuart House after the prom and make sure none of the boys got into too much trouble. He would have much preferred to get a hotel with Julian and spend some much-desired time together without constant interruptions, but at least the house would be emptier than usual.
Once Logan had changed out of his clothes form prom and into something more comfortable, he returned downstairs, but not before unexpectedly passing Derek in the hall. “Shouldn’t you be with Casey?” Logan asked, cocking an eyebrow at him.
“Shouldn’t you be monitoring the burlesque show in the kitchen?” Derek asked, not even looking up from texting. When Logan looked even more confused, Derek explained, “You left Julian alone after he drank half a bottle of tequila. He wanted attention.”
“I’ve been gone for five minutes…” Logan grumbled, turning to go down the stairs. He had started to find Julian’s constant need for affection more adorable than annoying, but he supposed that was a hazard of them being whatever they were now. Logan thought they were dating, and Derek agreed that they were at least dating if not boyfriends, but Julian kept saying stupid, coy things like ‘I don’t like labels’ or ‘call it whatever you want to.’
As Logan reached the kitchen, he could here people laughing and Julian singing.
”’—and with a square in the act, he’s gonna set this music back to the caveman days…’” Julian belted loudly—but miraculously in key—while he reclined gracefully across the kitchen counter like a jazz singer on a grand piano. “’Everybody wants to be a cat!’”
Logan pushed through the crowd of boys who were indulging whatever fantasy Julian was enacting, and he hovered over his friend-and-sometimes-boyfriend. “Julian,” Logan said, failing to frown in disapproval.
“‘Everybody’s pickin’ up on that feeeline beat—‘cause everything else is’—” Logan sighed and picked Julian’s lithe body up, throwing him over his shoulder “—hey, put me down. I’m not finished!”
Logan pat Julian’s bottom. “Time for bed, kitten.”
“You ruined my song,” Julian pouted, struggling against Logan as he was carried up the stairs. He tried in vain to twist out of Logan’s arms, but he was either too tired or too drunk to do it, and instead, he draped himself more heavily over Logan’s shoulder. “You’re not nice to me.”
When they got to the second floor, Logan set Julian back on his feet, still holding him a little so he didn’t stumble back down the staircase. Frowning, Logan quietly said, “I’m sorry.”
“No, wait—” Julian seemed to realize that he had said something wrong, but in his inebriated state, he couldn’t quite figure out what. Logan knew he still took every comment too seriously, still blaming himself for the past three years, even though Julian had never held their history against Logan. Julian wound his arms around Logan’s neck and purred, “You are sometimes nice to me,” while nuzzling into Logan’s neck. “You’re nice to me a lot of times.”
“Okay,” Logan replied. He closed his eyes as Julian cuddled up to him, Julian, until he felt something wet lapping at his chin. “What are you—are you licking me?”
“‘m a cat,” he mumbled, slumping against Logan and bursting into a fit of giggles.
