lol oops momentary anon fail. anyway sorry for the wait, IT'S FINALLY SUMMER NOW THOUGH SO LET THE FIC FLOWWW

Bringing it up at lunch on Monday is like pulling teeth, but even Mark knows he's so well out of his element that he has no choice but to get a couple of outside opinions.

"Nah," Dustin says dismissively when Mark has brought him and Chris up to speed. "Eduardo? No way. He'll come crawling back, he knows he loves us."

"Isn't that Gossip Girl?" Chris interjects.

"Maybe."

"That doesn't even come on for like three weeks, what, did you read the books?" Chris grins and takes a bite of his sandwich. "I didn't even read the books," he says with his mouth full. "No one with a Y chromosome has ever read the books."

"I've just seen previews," Dustin sniffs.

"Guys," Mark says. "Focus."

"Sorry, sorry," Chris says. "I don't know what you're so worried about, though. I really can't see him moving away. I mean…everything is here for him."

His eyes linger on Mark as he says it, and Mark looks away, chewing on his lip.

"It seems like it might be real," he says quietly.

"Why?" Dustin asks.

Mark scowls. "Bullshit about his father. And he said…" he pauses, calling up the exact words. "He's 'spinning his wheels out here.'"

"Aren't we all," says Dustin.

"That's what I said," Mark says. "But – he kept talking about how he wasn't in a position where he could just stay."

"Like you," Dustin adds delicately. Mark shrugs unhappily, and Dustin claps him on the shoulder.

"Look," he says. "Just, you know, profess your undying love for the dude. That always works in movies."

Mark doesn't say anything. He's trying to pretend the thought hasn't crossed his mind a million times already, and he suspects Chris can see straight through it, but if he does he doesn't mention it.

Chris catches him after lunch, though, predictably.

"Hey," he says.

Mark nods and braces himself.

"I really don’t think you should worry," Chris says quietly. "Seriously, I just can't picture it, him wanting to go, I mean, so soon—"

He bites his lip.

"Just, you don't want it to be like you're making him give something up, to, whatever, to be with you," Chris says. "I think that's probably it."

"I'm not asking that."

"Well, you don't mean to, but—"

"I'm not," Mark says. "It's not that I…" he grimaces, "don't want him to be successful, fuck. It's just – the way he's doing it, I mean, the reasons—"

"Have you told him that?"

"Yes."

"Have you really?"

"As far as I know," Mark bites out.

Chris studies him for a moment, then shrugs.

"Maybe Dustin's onto something."

Mark rolls his eyes and Chris holds up his hands.

"I'm just saying."

"Yeah," Mark says. "Well, we'll see."

Chris nods.

"Your pitying expression is certainly filling me with confidence," Mark says, deadpan, and he retreats into his office and glares at the glass walls until his computer makes a noise and he's pulled back into distractions.

The week rolls on with that detached sense of trepidation that comes with looming inevitabilities. Though they're okay, mostly, they're trying. They're not unhappy, they're laughing and Eduardo's touching him on the shoulder and Mark still feels like he's lucky almost every moment of it, only now it's accompanied by a little pang, too. And Eduardo is still leaving for Miami Saturday afternoon and Mark is just trying not to think about it. If he doesn't make it important, it won't be, he thinks. If they don't make it seem real then it won't happen. That's the best he can hope for.

Or at least he doesn't see another option, because Eduardo isn't changing his mind, at least not about Miami, at least not yet. It's only the first step, he says. It's only to see, he keeps saying, over and over.

Mark asks just once whatever happened to Eduardo being sick of his father controlling his life, like he'd told him what feels like a long time ago now, and Eduardo says something edgy about how it's not like he doesn't want to work for J.P. Morgan and Mark gives up. He hopes the look on his face is enough to make his feelings known.
