[ooc: follows the end of this thread: erik v. war]

*Riley still can't believe that he's managed to actually capture the attention of someone like Erik. He can't believe that someone like Erik could actually be in love with someone like him. It just didn't make sense. It went against the way fate had been treating him his whole life and yet, here he was, happy and in love with someone as incredible as Erik.

Erik. Erik who was currently late.

Riley tried not to worry but it went against his being. Erik was never late like this. Maybe a few minutes or a half hour late with breathless apologises and kisses to make up for it but it's been almost two hours.

Erik had a habit of going out on his own some nights. Going to bars to drink and numb the pain that Riley wished he would just share because Riley was here and Riley wanted to help. He had told Erik as much but... but it was hard for the man to share. Riley understood that. Riley could be patient when it came to this.

But Riley wasn't patient now. He had called Erik's cell a few times but got no response. Now all sorts of situations were flowing through Riley's mind; each possibility of what had happened worse than the last and before it drove him completely insane, Riley pushed himself to his feet, grabbed his shoes and went to pull his coat on. Ready to go out and find Erik himself, if he could.*

*Erik had considered going home after the fight, but he needs someone to hold on to. He needs someone to hold onto him. He finds himself at Riley's door, hesitant to knock with such battered, bloody knuckles, and holding his breath so his sobs aren't audible through the door. He raises a shaking hand and squeezes his eyes shut, hoping to find courage behind his lids.*

*Erik doesn't say anything; he just wraps his arms tightly around Riley and buries his face in his hair, choking on his own tears.*

*Erik can't seem to find the words - any words - to say what he's feeling or why he's feeling it. He keeps himself wrapped around Riley and tries to stop himself crying so damn hard. His fingers are curled into Riley's shirt and his face is pressed against his neck now. He wants to stay like this forever. Hide behind this person that has brought him nothing but happiness.

He takes another minute to cry and shake before he attempts to speak.*

I-I... I... r-ran... into... someone.

*He draws in an unsteady breath and shuts his eyes, fingers curling and uncurling in the fabric of Riley's shirt.*

There's s-something I... h-have to tell you about m-myself.

*Erik pulls back far enough to unbutton and roll up his sleeve, revealing his tattoo from the war.*

I'm not... I'm not from... h-here.

*Erik pinches his eyebrows together and nods as much as he can manage.*

I... it... I didn't want you to kn-know.
