Quentin’s tired of waiting and seriously, if they weren’t stuck decades in the past with no one else but themselves, he thinks he would have found someone else to take his mind off of it. But they’re here together and Eliot’s all he’s got. Eliot’s his everything now. His best friend. His quest mate. His roommate. The bane of his existence. His stronghold. His confidant. But he’s also the one thing he really wants to confide about.
And it’s driving Quentin crazy.
He’s never been one to make the first move, but he’s had to grow up a lot in the past few months. He’s had to learn everything that he thought would never work for him because there was no one else to hide behind. There was no one to help him with this. He wanted Eliot and there was no one to help him with it.
He tried being sexy. He bent down to do stuff, making sure his butt was facing Eliot. He ate with his fingers and licked it all up. He tried walking around with nothing but a pair of shorts one time and he just ended up catching a cold and had to spend the next few days wrapped in layers and layers of clothes because Eliot was pissed that he would be so fucking stupid.
Quentin knows Eliot isn’t sleeping with anyone. He also knows he’s the only guy around that Eliot spends any time with. Which is why he’s wondering how Eliot can look him dead in the eye when he’s trying to be sexy and react to nothing.
