/silently, he calms down. Taking a deep breath, he shudders, letting it all out as he curls around the other
Uh huh. Cause I’m a good boy. I don’t have to go back until I’m ready.
/he’s really just forcing himself to calm down, but it works.
/continues rubbing his back, rocking him a little
Yes, you are a good boy. A very good boy.
Shhhh, calm. Uncle’s here.
/he goes quiet, just letting the other rock him, letting his eyes flutter shut as he’s held.
I love you. I love you, Uncle. Love you so much. Thank you for being with me.
I’m…tired. Can you put me to bed, please?
I love you too. I love you too, Petru. I love you too so much. I’ll try to be always there for you.
Alright. /picks up properly, gets up, and walks to his bedroom
/after getting there, puts down on the bed
Do you want Alex to stay here and sleep with you?
N—no. I just want to sleep by myself.
/his voice cracks slightly, and he lets his eyes flutter shut as he cuddles into the pillows.
When I…when I wake up, can…can you please bring Mister Buns back?
