Work Text:

Charlie lay watching the clock with Don's arm slung over his chest. He could tell Don was awake, but neither of them was moving.

11:59 became 12:00.

Charlie held his breath, but Don's chest continued to rise and fall against his back, and Don's arm didn't move.




Charlie wondered if maybe Don hadn't been awake after all; but that would be telling itself.

"Don, technically, I've stayed until morning now."

Charlie felt a silent laugh on the back of his neck, and smiled as Don's arm tightened around him.

"Then I guess you might as well stay."
