Who: Ozzie & Drew When: that evening Where: their place What: Drew comes home Rating: R+?
After his run-in with Dean at that club, Drew's sexcapades had turned into something a little more like prostitution; all that was missing was the money. He didn't want to eat, or sleep or do anything but try and become lost with someone else's body, touch and be touched and forget and forget and forget.
And then he saw Ozzie's message and he couldn't forget anymore because the pain of it was right there, curled about his heart and he had to return.
He came back to the house that he'd thought he'd forgotten about (but could never forget about) and knocked gingerly on the door; he looked terrible, gaunt and tired and black-eyed with exhaustion, his body bruised from too rough games and drunken carelessness. He was dirty and grimy and dressed in someone else's clothes, and all he wanted was to see Ozzie and say sorry before he curled up on the step and died.
