*Challenge #48: Angst*
Title: Silent Stillness
Notes: pendulumchanges beta'd this for me. *smackles Pend* I wanted to write today and I have a weakness for parallels, so this came to mind, based on "Quiet Surrender" the other day.

The loft was dark and empty and still. Brian stared at the door for a long time, wishing it would open and Justin would come back in, yet knowing it wouldn't happen. He walked to the bar and poured himself a drink, feeling the walls closing in. Sighing, he thought of all the things he could have said or could have done to keep Justin from leaving. But he couldn't say them -- wouldn't say them -- so now he was here, alone again. And this time he knew that Justin wasn't coming back. He closed his eyes against the settling stillness.
