Mr. Wright’s Case
- What a great timing.
That made him smile a bit, imagining the few chances that the event of their reunion had to happen, that was almost comical. But well, Ciel wouldn’t believe such an encounter to be possible just some years ago. Supernatural was still a weird field, and would surely always be for the young earl.
- Yes, it is.
Glancing outside, Ciel stood up and went to his own bed and took off his coat. It was warmer than outside in the room, of course, but it was still cold. Just putting off a layer of clothes made him shiver - and reluctant to sleep in his usual night shirt.
Alois arched one eyebrow to observe better that last movement.
Slowly pulling the lace on his neck with two fingers, undoing the bow, Alois turned to the window when the wind started to make noises as it came in. After changing his clothes, slowly and without embarrassments, teasing Ciel. Soon enough, both were heading to their respective beds. Alois was still getting comfortable and testing the bed when the wind blow inside again, blowing off the candles and leaving the whole room into darkness. Fear enveloped Alois as he yelled, he thought he wasn’t gonna be able to move in any sort but he did and he did it to run towards Ciel’s bed, nestling with the other boy, as shaking a lot. Anything but the darkness. Anything.
Oh, Ciel was totally able to feel the stare of the other while he was getting ready for the night, but he didn’t react. He had his share already, fighting would help in now way. Let him have what he wants -a peek and being annoying- and then he would let him alone as well. Patience was a necessity around Alois.
With much effort, Ciel was in his sleep clothes and he quickly put himself in bed. Too cold, and the wind outside was helping nothing. Fortunately there was a thick eiderdown on the bed, Ciel was able to feel warm again and he sighed of relief.
When the candles went off, he didn’t get scared, only a bit surprised by the sudden darkness but since they had decided to sleep it was for the best. However,…
- What are you doing Alois?
This kid and the concept of privacy. What was the big idea? He could feel the blonde shaking far too close from him.
- Wh… What’s happening?
