Desire universe: 27th Birthday

Note: I said that I'd be jumping around in time... 200 words this time.


27th Birthday

It was Dom's birthday, and he was beyond tired. All he wanted was to curl up somewhere and hibernate. Instead he was partying again, drinking too much and trying hard not to look over to where Billy was standing.

He could tell that Billy was not happy with him, could feel the disapproval hidden behind a glittering smile without even glancing. But he could not give in, not this time. This time he would lock Billy out of his room. Maybe he would even take someone else with him.

Oh, who was he kidding?

Billy would stalk into his room, all fury and disappointment, because Dom had already given him his key earlier today, when pressed against the mirror of the hotel elevator, finger-shaped bruises already forming where he'd be wearing his cuff later.

Dom looked up, just to see Billy leave the room without a backwards glance. He wanted to follow him. Have him take the pain and convert it into something that covered the holes in Dom's heart. But Billy had not given him the sign, so Dom would have to wait, alone in his room. All night, if necessary.

Dom had given in a long time ago.
