It was the first day of their winter break. More importantly, it was the first winter break that would be just Julian and Logan. Derek had come across sudden plane tickets to Hawaii, and would be off getting tan and hooking up with every hula girl he came across.
Julian crossed the marble floors and wide windows, making his way down the familiar hallway to Logan’s room. With Michelle and Senator Wright out, the place was quiet. Peaceful, even. He pushed open the door, and had no choice but to smile. He found Logan there, lying sprawled out on his silver-grey bedspread.
Midterms had been stressful, he knew. For the past two weeks Julian only saw Logan either pouring over books in the library, or rushing from building to building with heavy bags under his eyes and a distant, glazed expression of frustration and desperation. Now, all that weight seemed to have lifted from him.
Here, he seemed peaceful. Angelic, almost. His chest slowly rose and fell, his lips closed, with almost a turn of a smile. Almost. His thick eyelashes resting against smooth cheeks that once again had a healthy glow to them. So Michelle had him eating properly again, that was good.
Though Julian thoroughly enjoyed drinking in the scene, he couldn’t resist. It had been far too long since he had been able to touch Logan.
The bed dipped as Julian slowly crawled over to him. He placed his hand on Logan’s firm chest, nuzzling him gently awake. He still had his usual smell of detergent and fresh rain. Logan murmured, turning his head instinctively towards Julian. Before he had properly awoken, Julian guided him into a brief, sweet kiss.
Logan sighed thickly as he opened his eyes.
"Hey you." Julian smirked. "Listen, I have a problem."
"Yeah?" Logan yawned, stretching. "What’s that?"
"I have an asshole boyfriend who slept through his phone ringing, so I was stuck downstairs for twenty minutes trying to get inside." Julian laughed though. How could he be mad?
"That sounds like quite a problem." Logan said quite seriously. "We’ll have to think of something to do about that."
Julian grinned, brushing the bridge of his nose against Logan’s.
"You might try taking your clothes off. I’ve found a naked Logan solves most problems."
