[CLOSED] weenies

WHO: Drift and Wing
WHERE: Hippie house (aka Drift and Wing's rad bachelor pad at the Hub)
WHEN: As soon as Wing gets back from THIS.
WHAT: Drift being an emotionally constipated weenie and Wing being Wing
WARNINGS: Hippies

[Okay, so maybe Drift was having mixed feelings about Wing "going out" with Knock Out. On one hand, HEY, he was making friends and all. That was good! It wasn't really fair that Drift was hogging someone as good as Wing all to himself anyway. At least, that's how he felt sometimes, considering they lived together, sparred together, trained together, meditated together... yeah. They were practically glued at the hip at this point. He couldn't blame Wing if he wanted to get away from him every now and then.

On the other hand, Drift couldn't help but feel a little... off. Jealous? He wasn't really sure what it was, but either way, he didn't like that he felt that way. He certainly wasn't entitled to Wing's time or attention, but part of him liked it. Almost craved it, even, and that bothered him. He'd chalked it up to being afraid of losing him again, and while that might have been true, in the back of his mind he knew there was more to it than that. And that bothered him, too.

Basically, everything was bothering him, and he felt stupid for being bothered. Man, what a pain.

So here he was, waiting up for Wing to return and busying himself with tidying up his side of their shared room, trying to distract himself from being a gigantic weenie.]

[Wing gently caught Drift's arm to stop him from doing anything yet.] You could just ask me, you know? It's not like I'm spoken for or anything. [Either he's reading Drift right, and he's 99% sure he is, or he's just made a fool of himself.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - gentle smile)

[Wing shifted to face Drift, smiling at his roommate.] You could ask me out, you know? Or are you worried I'll say 'no'?
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - can you believe it?)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
Not at all. I'm completely serious. Unless you don't want to go on a date. You just seemed like you wanted to ask.

Perhaps I read you wrong, though. [He shifts to cross the room back to his side.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - smirk)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
Well, you never asked. I'd not spend so much time with you if I didn't enjoy your company.

[He turned back to study Drift, hands on his hips.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - Very disappointed)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
[His optics narrow a bit, smile disappearing.] And why would you think you'd not deserve someone like me?

You're a good mech, Drift. You'd lost your way when we first met, but from all you've told me you've gone out of your way to be the best that you could be.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - gentle smile)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
It means everything, Drift. No one is perfect, that you're trying means a lot.

[He stepped back up to Drift, reaching out to give his friend's shoulder a squeeze. He doesn't know if he can ever teach you to see yourself as worthy, but he can try.]

You're worth more than you let yourself believe.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - sweet smile)

[He was mildly surprised to have his hand brushed away, but it also told him just how wounded Drift was inside. When Drift stepped in to hug him? Wing smiled softly and wrapped his arms back around Drift, holding him firmly close.]

I'm glad I can be here for you. You mean a lot to me, Drift.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - bedroom eyes)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Wing just held Drift to him, one hand softly moving up and down Drift's back.]

So...if you won't ask me... [He shifted back just enough to look at Drift.] Are you doing anything tomorrow night?
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - wink)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 05:07 am (UTC)(link)
Good. It's a date, then.

You have a favorite place around here? [He knew Drift hadn't been here too much longer than he had, but it was worth asking. Drift had been with him practically since arriving, so if Drift had found a place he liked before Wing arrived, Wing wasn't aware of it.]

[That giggle earns him a soft snerk from Wing.]

Hot springs sounds nice.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - wink)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-02 05:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Wing is perfectly happy to just hug him.]

I think your idea is perfect. We'll head to the hot springs tomorrow.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - sweet smile)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-03 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[That's okay, you can be awkward, Drift, Wing finds it rather endearing.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - gentle smile)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-03 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. We should.

[Have a last quick hug.] Sleep well, Drift.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - happy)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-03 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
[That sheepish laugh makes Wing pause, and with a chuckle he comes over to help Drift clear off his berth. You dork, he loves you, you know that? How deeply, even he's not sure yet, hey, it's only been a couple months, okay? But he does love you.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - wry grin)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-03 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
Hm, I think that may have been my fault. [He gives Drift a light nudge before he steps away to go put down the things he just picked up off the berth.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - cheeky)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-03 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, since Drift won't be lying down to sleep quite yet, Wing sits beside him, reaching to gently love on Rodimus. This only causes Skyhopper to perk up and let out a rather jealous sounding meow. Skyhopper starts picking his way across the room.]

I won't apologize then.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - happy)

[Wing just leans into Drift a bit in return. When his cat came around close enough he offered up a hand to the kitten, bringing the little rascal down by his chest.]

I think bringing these two back here with us was a good idea. [he loves da kitties. ~<3]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - wry grin)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-04 05:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Wing isn't afraid of moving a sleeping cat. He plucks Rodimus up, stands, and motions for Drift to lie down. He's not noticed that you move too much in your sleep, so once Drift is settled, he'll plop the protesting kitty onto Drift's chest plates.]

Adorable and in charge, yes? [amused.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - laugh)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-04 05:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[Wing laughs and shrugs, gesturing to the little furball that's managed to find a way to his helm. Skyhopper is looking rather smug up there.]

I don't know either of us will ever tame them.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - wry grin)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-04 06:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chuckles.] I think we should learn to choose our battles. Good night, Drift.

[He'll head to his berth, plucking Skyhopper from his head so he can lie down.]
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - sweet smile)

[personal profile] knight_light 2014-07-04 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[He actually facepalms so he can laugh at you without you knowing. You're such an adorable dork, Drift.]
