FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

(Anonymous)
Sometimes it stuns Mark that he's only known Eduardo for a few weeks. Maybe he's not used to making friends who aren't abject nerds just like him; maybe he's out of practice. But he thinks Eduardo's worked harder than people usually do.

He wonders sometimes if his reputation preceded him.

But that doesn't matter, because Eduardo's here now and things are turning out the way they are, regardless of how they got started.

And the way things are – they're easy, and simple, and they don't come with any caveats. Not yet, anyway. Eduardo does say things sometimes, deliberately nonspecific nods to his family that come with a brief darkening of his eyes. Eduardo has a very expressive face, in a way Mark's never noticed in anyone before. It's possible that he just wasn't looking – but he's looking with Eduardo. It's hard not to notice, what with the way Eduardo's face flickers and sways with the flux of his thoughts, when he's listening to someone speak, when he's looking studiously, sincerely into their eyes. Add that to the list of Eduardo habits that should make Mark deeply uncomfortable by all precedents, but for some unknown reason are not.

Eduardo wears his heart on his sleeve, and Mark thinks it's remarkable how different that is from him. He doesn't have the schema to be anything like the way Eduardo is, vocal and emotional and unafraid in some ways, though Mark suspects that might be something of a defense mechanism. Mark is brazen, but there's a difference. He wears things heavy in the base of his skull when they're going wrong, a constant headache, showing nothing more than pinched eyebrows and the taut set of his shoulders. His sleeves stay clear. He keeps his heart out of sight and out of mind.

It's kind of ridiculous, Mark thinks. This is the most thought he's put into anything to do with relationships since he made Facebook.

He gets Chipotle with Chris and Dustin after his coding tear is over but before he gets any sleep, two nights later, and he's zoning out when he hears Eduardo's name.

"What?" he says, sliding back into focus.

Chris and Dustin glance at each other. Dustin is grinning.

"We were just saying that, uh, that looks like it's going well," he says.

"What?"

"With Eduardo."

Mark's still not getting it.

"Your friendship," Dustin says, pronouncing it carefully, as though Mark won't recognize the word.

"Oh." Mark takes a bite of the guacamole section of his burrito. "Yeah."

Chris is smiling tentatively.

"It's good to see you with someone," he says. Dustin chokes on his drink.

"We're not dating," Mark says. Dustin coughs and Mark gives him a stern look.

"It's not like I can't find the middle ground between having no friends and being, like, married," he says., and then, he wonders if that's true. Well, not the marriage part, exactly but there's something to it.

"You guys have just been spending a lot of time together," Chris says, glancing at Dustin. It's precisely what Mark's brain was trying and failing to arrive at. He shrugs.

"He's a good guy," he said. "He figured out how to use my coffee maker."

Chris raises an eyebrow, and Dustin says, biting down on a smile, "Well, that explains it."

Mark knows what they want to ask – what's Eduardo got that literally no other person ever has, where Mark and stable friendships with people who aren't his roommates are concerned? But he's not sure he knows the answer to that yet, or at least he's not sure he could articulate it in a way that doesn't make him look like a lunatic.

He steals one of Dustin's chips and keeps quiet. Scrutiny worries him a little – he'd rather avoid it for the time being if he can. It's better, he thinks, not to mess with a good thing.

Great update. It's really great, how Mark's observations of Eduardo exist on two levels, and he hasn't quite managed to connect them. I'm excited to see where they go.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

Yeah, I'll <3 this story forever. *nods her head* Yep.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

aww. i liked that this update focused on that stage of being new friends, enjoying each other's company so much and that hint, tiny hint that it's not all platonic. when they are already in an established relationship and they look back, they'd probably realize that they started falling in love from this point.

this is lovely.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

This is so, so achingly good! I really love the niche you've found concerning the characterization and the pacing, giving the characters time to slowly develop an organic relationship.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

i hope they will go well>3
your fic is really sweet and i enjoy every bit of it!

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (8/?)

I am LOVING this. Mark stubbornly puzzling through what's going on and what he feels about Eduardo is so charming and so HIM. And Eduardo, of course, is like a ninja friend, stealthily charming his way into Mark's life forever. COFFEE = TRUE LOVE, at least in my book. I definitely cooed a lot at the idea of him making mental Mark coffee notes. ♥
