FILL: call to me with words i never knew (14/?)

(Anonymous)
ahh guys. your comments make me so happy, i'm so glad you like this so far. i'll try to keep it coming!

Eduardo looks tired the next time Mark sees him, which is on Mark's front step for no real reason except he asked if he could stop by and Mark said yes. His eyes are dark and rounded into bleary shadows. Mark tries not to let the fact that he's knows Wardo's gay now float to the fore of his mind. Chris is gay. It's whatever. He steps back to let him in.

In the kitchen, he watches Eduardo fish around in the fridge for beers. Eduardo has been here enough times now that it doesn't even sit wrong with Mark when he makes himself at home, and Eduardo, for his part, doesn't give Mark those little glances like he's asking permission, not anymore. They can just do this now. It's not a thing.

"What's up," Mark asks, when he's leaning securely against the counter. He accepts beer and bottle opener when Eduardo hands them over.

"Nothing," Eduardo says in that way of his that means it is precisely not nothing. "I've just got to go to Miami for a few days."

"Oh." Mark waits.

"It's my father," Eduardo says predictably, after a brooding pause and a long pull on his beer. "Wants to introduce me to some new people, he says. New opportunities," and he sighs on the words.

Then he looks at Mark, which is the part Mark had not been looking forward to. He doesn't know what Eduardo wants him to say. He wishes he'd just keep talking. Mark can do listening – he can stand in a room with someone and be quiet and nod occasionally and let them read supportive into that however they want.

Supportive with words, though, that he's not so sure about.

He opts for a half-frown, an expectant sort of sympathy that says he'll take more information if Eduardo wants to give it.

Eduardo still looks miserable, though, and he doesn't say anything, so Mark says, hesitantly, "Want to go sit down?"

"Yeah." He sounds grateful. Mark leads the way.

When they're on the couch, Mark puts his feet up on the coffee table and drinks while Eduardo starts to talk.

"Things are just never good enough for him, you know? I'm doing fine in Palo Alto. Good, even. But it's always got to be the next thing, and the next, and the next." He tips his head back and runs the heels of his hands over his eyes.

"It's just a few days," Mark says. He knows it is not the right thing to say.

Eduardo glances at him sideways, frowning. "I know," he says, sounding distant. "It's never going to stop, though."

"I find that hard to believe."

Eduardo raises an eyebrow.

"One day you'll be more successful than him," Mark says, shrugging. "You'll be better than him. I mean, you already are." He mouths at the lip of his beer. Eduardo turns his head to stare. "You're only 24. At your rate – give yourself a couple years." It occurs to him that he doesn't even know what Eduardo's father does. He makes a mental note to Google it. Or ask. Maybe asking would be better.

"That's easy for you to say," Eduardo says, but he's smiling.

"Yeah, well, I'm not trying to live up to anyone," Mark says.

"Sure you are," Eduardo says. Mark looks at him, nonplussed. "With Facebook. That was your thing. You made yourself on that."

Mark shakes his head. He's not getting it.

"It proved that you—" Eduardo starts, and then he stops, shakes his head too, takes a drink of his beer. "I don't know. I wasn't there."

"I wanted to be in a final club." Mark's talking before he realized that he opened his mouth. "I came to Harvard because it was Harvard…and then I still had to work for it."

Eduardo's eyes have slid into a lock on Mark's face. Mark looks over at him for just a moment and something about that expression makes his chest hurt, weirdly. He's never talked about this with anyone before. He didn't even know there was anything to talk about.

He's forgotten what he was going to say. He wonders if Eduardo's father knows he's gay. Is the Saverins' money the kind where Eduardo's got to produce an heir? That would be so stupid. He thinks they're probably new money, but maybe it doesn't matter when it comes to that kind of thing.

He doesn't want Eduardo to have to do anything he doesn't want to do.
