Prompt idea from [community profile] dailyprompt for 11/13/14

I was dosing, in and of sleep, listening to the background gunfire and dialogue of ME3. I was curled up on my side near the edge of the bed with him sitting on the floor with his back to the side. If he leaned his head back just a bit, he would hit my stomach.

"Hey." he touched my shoulder and I started awake. I sat up and noticed that the tv was on the console home screen.

"How long have I been asleep?" I felt a bit bad, but the lack of sleep had been taking its toll on me these last few nights. Tai had moved away from me to sort through cloths, tossing a few onto the a chair.

"About half an hour. You staying?" I looked at him taking off his shirt and dammit, couldn't help the flutter in my stomach. I wanted to beat myself, this was Nolan's best friend, his brother. Well...truth be told with the way Nolan was and how he left, their relationship had kind of taken a nose dive. My internal debate must have taken longer than I thought, because Tai turned back to me and met my eyes. He stood there in basketball shorts and nothing else, his long black hair slightly obscuring his deep brown eyes. Heat crept up my face, but I couldn't force myself to look away. "Becuase," he took the few steps over to where I was sitting on the edge of the bed. "You can stay if you want to. I'll take you home on the way to work." I stared up at him, and there was something in his eyes that made my breath catch.

"That's..." I cleared my throat. "Yeah that works." He sat down beside me and wrapped an arm my shoulders.

"I meant what I said that night, but now I have to ask that you let go. It's over, he's gone. I hate seeing you like this."

"What should I do?" I looked over at him, already to close. I looked away and leaned my head on his shoulder instead.

"Find a new hobby, do something, anything. You have to detach yourself from him. He was just a shitty controller to a cute little console. " he squeezed my arm and kissed my temple. I wasn't sure how I felt about being compared to a gaming system, but I'd been called far worse. I cuddled closer to him and wrapped my arms around his waist.

"You say do...anything..." I looked up at him. "What exactly does that entail?"

"Jenn..." his control was worse than mine and my heart was in my throat when he kissed me.
