There's an armchair by the window of the small room that Charlie particularly likes. It's overstuffed and comfortable and just big enough for two, if one is on the smallish side.

He's curled up there now, a photograph of a blonde forty-something man on his knee.

Someone is not a happy boy.

A hand on his shoulder.

He nods and sits down on Charlie's lap, looking at him curiously.

"Something the matter, Charlie?"

He nods and looks at the picture.

"Well, I gotta say he aged well."

And he looks at the picture for a moment before smiling at Charlie as gently as he can manage.

"He's got your love."

Does he mean it as a trait? Maybe. A comment on Charlie's commitment to his son? Maybe as well. Something indescribable in his appearance that reminds him of Charlie? Also possible.

"Probably more than that."

And his voice is gentle. So gentle.

"Make you a bet he makes president by 50."

"What's better than president?"

From: [identity profile]
"And why can't you be both?"

"But is the flaw in the position or the people who usually fill it?" he argues.

"And what if a saint became president?"

He shrugs.

"I'm not. But it was a good distraction."

Date: 2006-04-27 02:37 am (UTC)

He nods.

"I know. But something's better than nothing."

And he taps the picture.

"And you know you were an important part of this kid's life. That's the most important part."

"Hell yeah, you were," he says with a soft kiss to Charlie's cheek.

"Don't know how anyone could hate you, babe." He says quietly. "The way I figure it, if he knows you, he loves you. If he doesn't know you... it's because someone was fricking unfair."

And he wraps Charlie up in his arms as best he can before pressing a kiss to the top of his head.

"Love you too."

"Do you want me to tell you the truth," he asks gently, "or do you want me to make you feel better right now?"

"It'll never stop hurting, baby," and he holds Charlie tight. "It's always going to suck. That being said? Life goes on. 'Life is a series of meetings and partings. That is the way of it.'"
