Happy birthday, galehot!

Title: Someone Who Always Knows Better
A/N: thanks for your help, sxysadie21. This much.

“Michael, stop the whining, for fuck's sake. He only went there for two weeks. Enjoy the life of a temporary bachelor. Look at the guy. Hot, don't you think?”

Michael didn't. He didn't think at all. He just missed Ben. Missed him like crazy, like he thought he couldn't breathe sometimes. Maybe it was partly because they had never separated for such a long time before.
Except...except for the times when Ben was in hospital. And those times were the worst. They were a live and subconscious fear in Michael's mind. The fear to lose, to never see again. This time was different. He was telling himself, Ben had just left for a conference and a couple of lectures. But the fact didn't change a thing. He missed him. He missed him so much it hurt. He was longing for him.

Michael didn't turn his head in the direction Brian pointed. Neither did Brian. Michael sipped off his beer while Brian was nursing a long cold cup of coffee.

“You don't look too interested yourself,” Michael noticed absent mindedly.

Brian huffed. “Had him.”

“Yeah.” Like Michael didn't know.
Brian stole a glance at his watch. Two hours left.
He asked Michael to give him a lift home, because “Dudes, Mikey got a car!”, and entered the loft. The chromed designer clock, a part of the new interior, said, one hour and forty two minutes left.
Brian changed, had a smoke, checked e-mails, changed again. One hour ten minutes. He had another smoke.
A call for Thai take out, a hot long shower, and a shave. That took him an hour. A very long hour.
He checked his condoms stock. Two new packs. Lubed, hypoallergenic. Should be enough for the holidays.
A smoke. Who the hell made TV ads those days? He turned the TV off. It was better in complete silence.
Silence and the ticking.
Twenty minutes after the landing.
The delivery guy came and went, the bed sheets were changed into dark blue.
Fifty minutes.
Fucking snowy roads and slow taxi drivers.
A smoke in front of a dark window.
Not that he was waiting.
Not that he was longing.
No fucking way.
Those words didn’t belong in Brian Kinney’s vocabulary.
For all he knew.
But there was someone who always knew better.
