He's drunk.

He's in a terrible mood and thinks he ought to be allowed to be out of the house and drunk where Jim won't feel any of his wrath. He's removed himself from a situation that'll get him into a fight and has burrowed into the Hub's bar, knowing if he does this at the Winchester, someone's bound to get Jim. He's been nursing this through, letting a few hours pass before he tips the scales and drinks a little more.

It's all to get rid of that pit in his stomach that reeks of failure and reminds him that whatever plans they'd made for the future or to get them closer to his dream, they've fallen apart in front of him.

God damn it, he really hates his life, sometimes. He'd give anything to be back in a civilized place where he could build a future for him and Jim without having to resort to begging. That's not his luck, though. "Hey," he says hoarsely, getting the bartender's attention. "Another double, would you?"

The bartender slides the drink across the table, but it isn't Bones' hand that closes around it. "A double!" Jim observes, "This is exactly what I would have ordered, thank you."

Sliding into the seat next to Bones, Jim brackets him against the booth and away from prying eyes. "Been looking for you."
chasedthestars: (Cheeky.)

"I can tell," replies Jim, taking a drink with fingers wrapped firmly around the glass. "Which means it's lucky I found you and not somebody else. I won't talk if you don't want," he offers. "We can sit here quietly."
chasedthestars: (Hard to hear.)

Jim doesn't deny it. He wakes up hopeful every morning, and disappointed when he goes to bed, but that's got nothing to do with Bones. "You're not disappointing me. You could never disappoint me," Jim says, adding, "No matter how many fights you try to pick. I love you. This is the 'for better or worse' part, and we'll get through it."
chasedthestars: (Resigned.)

Bones familiar drawl rasps like sandpaper over Jim's heart, and he resists the urge to put an arm around him - the last thing either of them need right now is to come to blows, and Bones is as good as a powderkeg right now.

"I can't," he says, voice coming rougher. "I can't, Bones, and it's got nothing to do with our vows. I can't stand the thought of you sitting here, all alone and feeling like this. Okay? It breaks my heart."
chasedthestars: (Far away.)

"Instead, they're unrepentantly good, and you are not a man who can hate good people," says Jim, sighing as he slides over the rest of Bones' drink. "They're not our only hope. We knew going in that it would take time."
chasedthestars: (Intent.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 06:15 am (UTC)(link)
"We can go as fast or slow as you want." Jim rests a hand against Bones' back, rubbing gently. "It's gonna happen, Bones. This was only the start. I'm not gonna let us fail. You know that, right?"
chasedthestars: (Attentive.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
"I know." Jim's hand travels upward, closing around the hard knots slowly overtaking Bones' shoulders. "But you believe in me, and I'm telling you, I'm gonna get us through this. Nothing is more important to me."
chasedthestars: (Listening.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"Is this calm?" Jim asks, but not unkindly, still kneading at the tension in Bones' back. "Are you gonna let me take you home? Because you know we've got bourbon there, too."
chasedthestars: (Over shoulder close.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, it's better than throwing chairs," Jim concedes. Holding up a finger, he signals for a drink of his own, releasing Bones to hold it between his hands when it comes.

"You don't believe me, do you?" he asks at length. "That I'd put making you happy over everything else."
chasedthestars: (Bones.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Jim isn't entirely convinced, but he drops it for now. If he's right, he'll only be more miserable, after all. "You just have to have faith, Bones," he says. "Borrow some of mine, if you have to. I've got enough for both of us."
chasedthestars: (Sleepy eyed.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"You're married to a handsome man, Bones," says Jim, trying for a smile. "A lot of things should make you want that." He knocks back half his drink, breathing slowly through the burn. "If you mean it, finish your drink."
chasedthestars: (Talking.)

"Maladicta or Charlie Jones," says Jim, steadying Bones with a hand even as he gulps down the last of his own drink. "Jane was our only blonde, but that's okay. Kirk genes are strong."
chasedthestars: (Brother.)

[personal profile] chasedthestars 2013-12-29 10:30 pm (UTC)(link)
"Tell that to the genes of Jame T. 'I look just like my father' Kirk," replies Jim, serene, and guides Bones to the door and into the fading daylight.

"You know I've been looking for you since mid-morning."
