Alfie had his side to the door, didn't hear the door open over the rush of water. When he turned to reach for shampoo he saw Julien standing there, though, and he grinned a wide, happy sort of grin. It could have been the worst day ever, and Julien actually managing to get home early would have made it better. As it was, it had been a pretty damned good day already, and now it was almost perfect. He sat the shampoo bottle back down and then slid open the glass door to the shower.
He didn't say anything, just jerked his head in a motion that clearly meant 'get the hell in here. now.'
