"I kick you?" Ben asked as if this was the first time he'd heard it. There was a vague memory of Kerr teasing him about it in the past but it had been a while since it had been mentioned or described. "I wouldn't do that," he denied.

Ben's thumb caressed over Kerr's lips and he wriggled to get closer so he could lay a soft peck there.

"Are you okay to call Cain in here with us?" he asked, hoping that his request wouldn't spoil their cosy mood.

Kerr chuckled heartily at Ben's opening statement, delighted by his words because they were so unexpected. He grinned as he leant forward to kiss the tip of Ben's nose, enjoying the warmth that emanated in his chest simply because he got to hear Ben's sexy waking up voice.

"I don't actually just lie here mooning at you, you know," Kerr chastised playfully, shuffling down onto his side and supporting his head with his hand, his elbow burrowed into his pillow. His other hand was wedged between them, the backs of his fingers stroking Ben gently.

"It's just that, when you're about to wake up, you do this cute little wiggle with your nose and your lips twitch so I know exactly when to start looking at you so I can see you open your eyes." His grin turned mischievous, his eyes twinkling. "Plus, you finally stop kicking me, so that's a bonus."

Waking up in Kerr's arms the next day and feeling peckish, Ben remembered his promise to Cain the instant before opening his eyes. As usual, Kerr was awake before him and watching him. He narrowed his eyes and smiled, caressing hands up Kerr's side to get to his face. He cupped it.

"I can't believe you're not yet bored of watching me sleep," he said, his voice husky and unused.

Harm stuck his tongue out in return and upped the ante with a head waggle and a nose wrinkle because he found using the money fun. He'd gone to the trouble of securing some petty cash for just this purpose and using a card seemed so usual in comparison.

He gasped and pulled back to smack Trick's arm when he was accused of flirting, his expression indignant. "I was not flirting!" he hissed in protest, though he blushed immediately after because he supposed telling the guy they were living locally might have been construed as a come-on. To avoid drawing attention to them, he dragged Trick down into a table for two near the front window, where they had an expansive view of the street.

"And I didn't tip him," he huffed, settling himself into the seat opposite Trick and nestling his bag on the floor between his feet. When Harm looked up, he noticed how the sun beaming through the window made Trick's tanned skin glow healthily and lit up his pale blue eyes deliciously, causing Harm's body to clench with longing. The water nymph was ridiculously beautiful. As if Harm would ever flirt with anyone again when he had Trick across from him or within touching distance. The very idea was preposterous!

"They don't do tips here like we do, I don't think," he reasoned and then pulled a troubled face as he leant across the table to get closer to Trick, glancing towards he counter to see the worker was preparing their order and well beyond hearing distance. "Do you think he thought I was flirting with him?" he asked worriedly, frowning at his boyfriend. It would certainly explain why the guy gave him those measured looks. "I was just excited!"

"I think it's weird that you pay with cash instead of card," Trick replied before sticking his tongue out. He looked over his shoulder at the cashier before turning his face back toward Harm. "But it helps with the discount when you're flirting. Did you tip that guy?"

Kerr smiled, pleased that Ben was listening to him. "Let's go," he agreed, turning them both and hurrying towards home.

Kerr's words had a more sobering effect than he likely intended. After speaking about violent sires and thinking about New York so much, the taking of a head was too close to the reality Ben had faced. The seriousness leant into the kiss where he captured Kerr's lips to create something more than a light dalliance into a deeper and more fulfilling passion.

When they pulled back from one another, Ben's eyelids fluttered momentarily before he returned to walking. "We should get home soon so I can have a baggie."

The pushing down of his thirst was becoming less effective. Not because of time but because of the peculiar mix of stress and lust.

At Ben's reassurance, Kerr quirked a skeptical eyebrow but when the (potential-but-totally-unlikely) breakup was mentioned, Kerr's expression became disapproving. "Don't even let it get close," he warned. "If they're monogamous and happy, you need to stay away."

Smirking, he stepped in front of Ben and cupped his cheek, threading his fingers through his hair. "Find some new playthings. Preferably not a council member that can take your head, though. I'm very attached to this head." He gave Ben's hair a tug for emphasis and leant down to press a soft kiss to his lips.

"It'll be fine," Ben said with an eyeroll and a smirk. He contained his laughter because he knew what Kerr was getting at and it was very likely that Ben would focus on Harm and cause tension between him and his boyfriend. "I won't let it get to a breakup."

Kerr's humour only grew as Ben listed off his Irish goals. He smiled and nodded along as Ben listed them off, pleased that they wouldn't be rushing towards any of the London councils just yet. It seemed they might have to negotiate a few Irish ones, though; Kerr suppressed his wince.

"I think there are four bedrooms, yes, but should we really intrude on their time together? I know how you like to toy with him, you won't get carried away and ruin their relationship, will you?" Kerr drawled, his tone playfully challenging.

He couldn't imagine the three of them - plus anyone else Ben decided he liked the look of and dragged home with them whenever he liked - would put Harm and his boyfriend at ease, especially if Ben's blatant attraction for the nurse was on display. They were probably monogamous. Merely the concept of Cain might be too much for them. Plus, it would feel more than a little disingenuous to have offered them a lovely place to stay only for them to crash the party when it was just beginning.

The whole concept made Kerr uneasy and he was looking for Ben to reassure him.
