240: “Are you drunk?”

“Are you drunk?”

Steven knew it was a dumb question based off Josh’s rosy cheeks, sweat forming on the crown of hairline and especially the water forming in his eyes. Sighing Steven threw down a few bills to cover the tab along with a decent tip for the bartender who called him once Josh took his fourth shot of brandy. 

“Are you okay?” Steven whispered. He didn’t bother waiting for a response; he knew he wouldn't get one. Pulling onto the road he did glance over watching as Josh pressed his face against the cold window. Sighing Steven drove. 

“I can’t sleep. I hear her screaming for me when I do. Only when I’m drunk does it go quiet.” 

“Then sleep. I’ll be here.”
