It was not the first time he'd found him that way. Alfie had gone to bed an hour or so earlier, but he didn't sleep too heavily and when the door closed he'd come awake. He waited for half an hour or so for Julien to make his way to bed, and then he knew exactly what had happened and got up, going to look for where he'd fallen asleep this time.
He wasn't hard to find. He also wasn't hard to carry, so Alfie kneeled down to finish taking off Julien's shoes, then gathered the smaller man up in his arms and carried him to their bed.
