FILL: call to me with words i never knew (12/?)

(Anonymous)
It transpires that Chris is in the guest bed and Dustin is actually in Mark's bed. ("What? You obviously weren't going to use it.") Nobody is happy to be awake, but matters are made slightly better by a hangover-absorbing stop at McDonald's on the way to dropping off Eduardo, who says he has to change for work, at his townhouse.

He waves sleepily at them from the curb as they pull away. Mark is driving, and from the passenger seat, Chris says, "What is it an investor does all day, exactly?"

"If he told you that, he'd have to kill you," Dustin says around a mouthful of hashbrowns.

Mark doesn't speak, but as he turns off of Eduardo's street, he mentally resolves to find out the real answer. He feels a little bit like things are lopsided after last night – like Eduardo knows so much more about him than anyone ever has, and he knows hardly anything in return.

He wants to be able to give Eduardo some drunken piece of wisdom like que será, sera, and he wants it to be relevant – to stick.

***

The four of them have brunch on Saturday – only the combination of Eduardo's classy social skills, Chris' persuasiveness and Dustin's exuberance for French toast could make Mark do brunch – and Chris, bless him, spares Mark the trouble of showing interest.

"I'm a venture capitalist," Eduardo says. "It means I find promising start-ups and invest in them."

"You can spend all day doing that?" Dustin asks.

Eduardo laughs. "Somehow."

"But we're not a start-up anymore," Mark says. Chris glances at him. "I mean, I know after Thiel we left room for new investors, but isn't the point of being a VC to collect on the company's growth before it gets big?"

He looks at Eduardo with academic curiosity.

"Thiel, yeah," Eduardo says. "Well, my father knew some of the ones who came after him. It was his idea, actually. So that's how I got in."

Mark nods. He's come to think of Eduardo's father as a bit of a dirty word, just from the way Eduardo's face flickers a little every time he mentions him.

"But I don't regret it," Eduardo says quickly. "You know that. I wanted – I'm glad I was able to meet you." He nods to the table. "You guys," he amends, smiling a little, glancing at Mark and then looking down.

Mark avoids everyone's eyes, and avoids thinking about the way his stomach had given a little leap at Eduardo's words. It doesn't stop Dustin from making a dramatic toast with his mimosa, though – about how three's a crowd but four's a party, and how they wouldn't trade Eduardo in if he paid them, which he's already doing, so it's a moot point anyway.

Mark goes to the bathroom while they're waiting for the check, the dibs on which he has already argued Eduardo for and won, because he's polite like that.

Chris, in his feminine way, comes too.

"I think he really likes you," he says thoughtfully to Mark's reflection while they're both standing at the sinks.

"I appreciate the tone of surprise."

"No, I mean – it's fine. It's good."

Mark shrugs.

"Mark," Chris says, turning to him, "you know, it really is good. Making friends. Having – relationships with people who aren't actually a website you made up in college."

Mark fixes him with a challenging stare.

"I have you and Dustin."

Chris snorts. "Okay, and relationships with people with whom you didn't make up the aforementioned website in college."

Mark dries his hands. After a moment he says, "On Thursday, I was talking to Eduardo about how sometimes I wonder what the next step is for me." He frowns. "Like, I don't know, in life. Because Facebook's so much of it." He gives Chris a rueful look.

"And what did Eduardo say?" Chris asks.

"He said it wasn't the only thing I had."

Chris grins. "Does that mean what—"

"Yeah. I think it did."

Chris shakes his head and claps Mark on the back as Mark pushes open the bathroom door in front of him. "I like this one," he declares, and Mark just rolls his eyes.

Ah, there is nothing I don't love about this story. The pacing is so good, and you manage all of the relationships well. Eduardo and Mark are at the forefront, but you don't lose Dustin and Chris in the story. And this "You know that. I wanted – I'm glad I was able to meet you." He nods to the table. "You guys," he amends, smiling a little, glancing at Mark and then looking down. is perfection. Super excited for the next update.
