Nathan padded over to Caleb's bedroom. Noticing the door was open a crack, he gently pushed it open wider. He stood in the doorway for an awkward moment, slipping his glasses from his face and unnecessarily cleaning the lenses with his t-shirt. He finally found his voice and apprehensively ventured into the room further. "What's up? You wanted help with the userpics, right?" he asked kindly.

"Okay." He said softly, but watched him do it on the screen. Feeling bored already, he glanced at his hands instead, and found himself watching them move. "And then what?" He asked, his shoulders slumping, feeling like a baby.

Nathan glanced down at him, and did little to suppress the smirk tugging on one corner of his mouth at the way he was behaving. "Okay, now you've got to upload them." He bent down a little, sliding his arm across the top the chair, and tried to ignore the fact that he was just barely touching Caleb's back. "You won't need to resize them 'cause most of these are already a hundred by a hundred," he added, and relinquished the mouse, figuring Caleb could manage the next step.

Caleb let out a frustrated sound and sat back, his brows furrowed, his mouth in an upside down smile. He leaned back suddenly as if to get away from the computer, and almost jerked when their bodies touched. He jerked forward and then muttered a small apology, glancing at him before glancing back at the screen.

He didn't know what to do, and that frustrated him more than ever. Instead, he simply took the mouse after Nathan, and clicked around, hoping that would work instead, and nearly kicking the desk in front of him when nothing happened.

Nathan frowned slightly at his reaction but instead coughed quietly as if he hadn't noticed anything, deciding that the situation held an awkward enough air from what had happened earlier at the restaurant; the last thing he wanted to do was stir up more bad feelings.

He wet his lips and finally intervened when he realised how frustrated Caleb was getting, gently taking the mouse from him. "If you didn't know what to do next, you should have just asked," he told him, speaking softly. "Here, let me show you," he went on, his voice remaining level and patient. "Hopefully you'll remember, so next time you wanna upload some shit... well, you'll know."

One corner of his mouth turned up in a smile and he, after a few clicks and a little more explaining, uploaded the photos they had saved. "Got it?" He straightened up, his arm sliding away from the chair, and he instead just gripped the back with his hand. "That's all you wanted, right?"

"I did ask," Caleb muttered to himself and found himself relaxing at his tone. He looked on helplessly and licked his lips as he watched.

"And I can have 15, right? And I just have to label them, right?" He muttered quietly, feeling him move back. He leaned back and felt his hand, knewing it would be there, and didn't move forward.

"Well, no, what I meant was-" Nathan stopped abruptly, and then abandoned that train of thought, instead calmly addressing the other questions.

"Yeah, that's all you have to do," he replied with a brief nod. His breath almost caught in his throat as Caleb leaned back into his hand, and even though he knew no one else was home save for themselves, he tried to exercise some sort of self-control.

He turned his palm outward, gently rubbing his back, fingers trailing up and down his spine, taking comfort in the familiarity of his body and warmth.

Caleb bit his lip and kept his eyes to the screen. "Okay, walk me through this stupid shit one last time. Okay?" He put his hand on the mouse and cringed, knowing he kinda forgot already. Good thing Nathan was patient, he thought.

He rolled his shoulders as he clicked around and tried to upload another icon, rolling his head back slightly as well. Hope surged up within his body at the mutual wanted contact, and he felt better already.
