FILL: call to me with words i never knew (58/?)

(Anonymous)
Mark only sleeps a few hours, but it's not for lack of trying – he's sluggish and drained when he wakes to the sound of the phone ringing and gropes for it in the midday half-dark of his bedroom.

It's Dustin. Mark flops back onto his pillow, an arm over his eyes, and listens to a stream of unstructured plans for Chris-related festivities – this coming week will be his last, of course, so the real party will be next weekend, but Dustin was thinking they should go out tonight, probably, and they'll do a real, expensive thing in San Fran on the Friday and then a house party on the Saturday if Mark's cool with hosting that. It occurs to Mark that party-planning is a good coping mechanism for Dustin, even if he sucks at it. He thinks that's the kind of thing Eduardo would probably say. Maybe he'd phrase it a little differently. He nods along and when Dustin says so, drinks tonight? he says, "Okay."

He hangs up and closes his eyes and when he opens them it's early evening and he'd fallen back asleep. He sighs, over-warm and muzzy and irritated, and decides he ought to move this party to the living room before he sleeps through the whole week. The house is huge and quiet even though it's never either of those things, it's perfectly reasonably sized and it's full of noise, the hum of the refrigerator, the tick of a clock somewhere. Strange, how Mark notices those noises now. He never had before Eduardo was around.

There are two things he cares about in his email: Chris' letter of resignation, and David's, the CFO's. They make his jaw tight to look at. He doesn't know why he's letting all the pressure of replacing them fall on him. There are people to do that – David got hired with very little involvement on his part, and Chris… well, it never really applied to Chris.

For just one solitary moment, Mark gives himself over to deep, stabbing, I'm in my twenties and one of my best friends from college is leaving me and us and here and he takes care of so much shit for the company and for everything and he always knows what to do and I don’t know how to do anything, I don't know what to do about anything and fuck what the fuck are we going to do anxiety. And then he swallows and it's gone – though it doesn't escape him what that turned into at the end. He looks around the empty living room. His head aches, and he closes Chris and David's emails without looking at them again and goes to find some aspirin.

He has an unread text when he gets back.

if you just give me a job like that my father's going to say it's bc i'm sleeping w you

Mark stares at it. He reads it again, and a third time. His phone buzzes in his hand.

he's going to say i was sleeping with you to get a job. that's it, idk what else to tell you.

Mark lets out a little helpless breath, looking away from the screen like it's poisonous, staring around the living room. His hands are shaking, and he fits them around the edges of his laptop to hold them still. He wants to drop his head into his hands and sob, dryly, until his throat is so raw he can't speak. He wants to go to Miami and wipe Eduardo's father off the face of the map, and then take Eduardo by the shoulders and look him in the eyes and say, see, see, do you see now?

He texts back, fingers stiff, breath shallow in his throat.

i'm not trying to make you choose. but i hope you know that's fucking ridiculous.

He hits send accidentally, curses under his breath, and writes another one:

the job wasn't even open when we got together. if you know he's wrong i don’t get why it matters what he says.

He breathes steadily for a full minute, listening to the hum of the fan in his laptop, before his phone buzzes again.

you are making me choose though

And then:

i don’t know, mark. we'll talk when i get back.

Mark replies, okay, and then he calls Dustin. He thinks he probably ought to get drunk tonight.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (58/?)

blah, at least wardo was straight with him, even if it was through the form of a text and was kind of obvious. =\

@_@ very conflicting, i'd probably be iffy about taking the job too if I were in Eduardo's place. though irl I'm kinda more cold like Mark so I would also think it was ridiculous. ^^;;

This fic is one of my favorites!

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (58/?)

This fic just special, okay? Everything is well written and characterized and built. I hope they (Mark and Wardo) pull through; they have to. <333

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (58/?)

Oh, Mark. Not everyone is you. /o\

Ahhh, I want to yell at Mark for not realizing how quickly you can kill someone's reputation and appeal as a employee/coworker if everyone thinks they got the job by sleeping with someone. It's that black mark on your resume that no one wants.

I love this story and I really like that you have Wardo hesitant about it. I can't wait for the next part!
