[IC] Home Again  
*With the Sableye sat on his shoulder and the Glaceon trotting along at his feet, Steven climbs the hill to get home.

Jirachi had left him at the bottom of the hill and he climbs up by himself, grateful to be there again. Steven had enjoyed his company but found it exhausting, not used to travelling with someone. All the same, it had been fun.

He reaches the front door and knocks on it, alerting his other half of his arrival, before pushing it open and going into the house...*

*The angel's other half doesn't hear him come in- Steven is sat at the window seat, huddled up in the double quilt and hugging his other half's pillow close to him, sound asleep with his forehead rested against the glass of the window. He looks tired and worn, as if this is the first bit of sleep he's had for days.*

*After kicking off his shoes, taking off his coat and scarf and putting Steven's present in a safe place, Steven goes to find his other half.

He smiles softly when he finds him resting against the window so.*

I wonder how long he's been there... He looks tired out...

*He goes over to his sunbeam and plants a kisses gently on his cheek to wake him.*

Mmm...

*Steven wakes slowly, blinking a few times to clear his blurry vision, and looks at his other half tiredly.*

Oh, this is a nice dream...

This isn't a dream, Steven. I'm really here...

*It takes Steven another few moments to realise that indeed, he's awake, and the realisation that Steven is home quickly dawns upon him.*

Angel...!!

*And he practically leaps up and clings tightly to Steven as is he's the only thing left in the world.*

*Wraps his arms around him tightly and nuzzles into his shoulder, eyes closed and smiling softly.*

It's me, I'm here...

Oh god, I missed you... I'm never letting you go again...

*Squeezes Steven tightly on those last few words.*

Steven Stone: at peace[personal profile] whisperingsteel on April 17th, 2009 12:29 pm (UTC)
I missed you too... S-so much...

*Leans against him.*

But I wasn't gone long...

If felt like years to me, angel.

*Puts a kiss on Steven's temple as he draws back a little to look Steven in the eyes, stroking his cheek gently and smiling tiredly.*

Can I get you anything?

Steven Stone: smile[personal profile] whisperingsteel on April 17th, 2009 12:32 pm (UTC)
Mm... Even such a short time is too long to be away from you...

*Smiles warmly, glad to be home and lost in Steven's stormy-grey eyes.*

I wouldn't mind a cup of tea, sunbeam. But please, let me make it. You look tired.

No, angel, I can get it.

*Steers angel over to the sofa by his shoulders before dashing into the kitchen to make his other half a yamé tea. He comes back through, not only with the tea but with a plate of toasties, and sets them all down on the coffee table.*

*Sits gratefully on the sofa as he waits for Steven to come back. In his head, he is remembering all that happened over the past few days and he decides he'll have to play the tune he composed for Steven.

He smiles gratefully as Steven returns and he picks up the plate of toasties from the coffee table.*

Thank you, sunbeam.

You're more than welcome, love.

*Leans over and kisses Steven's forehead in between mouthfuls of toasted sandwich.*

How have you been? What have you been up to, sunbeam, whilst I was away?

Well, I've... I've been pretty lonely. I didn't get up to anything, except mope around the house... I couldn't even sleep while you were gone.

*Looks like he feels guilty.*

S-sorry, Steven...

I thought you looked tired...

No, don't be. It can't be helped... It's just how I cope when you're away.

*Drinks his tea and nods.*

I know, but it doesn't mean I don't feel guilty for it...

No, angel...

*Sighs and looks a little guilty himself, wishing he had said nothing.*

You do what you need to do. If you need to go and travel, so be it. I'll be here waiting, and I'll manage, somehow. Do what's best for you and don't worry about anything else... okay?

Mm, I know. I just miss you and feel bad for making you feel lonely, that's all.

Well... you can make it up to me now that you're back, hmm?

*Strokes Steven's hair gently, admiring how long it's getting and how it flicks out when it reaches his collar.*

I'm glad to be back, you know.

*Runs his fingers through Steven's hair and leans back into the sofa, glad to be sat on furniture again and be with his sunbeam. He closes his eyes.*

Are you going to sleep...?

It's very tempting... This is heaven.

*Purrs softly, leaning into the strokes.*
