Nathan had woken up several hours earlier from a bad dream and, after several minutes of tossing and turning, couldn't manage to get back to sleep. Once awake he couldn't even recall what had upset him badly enough to have roused him in the first place and tried to shrug it off. As he sat at the kitchen table, reading the newspaper in a vaguely interested way and nibbling at some slightly burnt toast, it was obvious he hadn't slept well the previous night - the darkness under his eyes, the heavy-lidded expression.

Caleb came in ten minutes later wearing his boxers and a plain white shirt that could've been mistaken for rags, padding his way in with sleepy eyes. He yawned quietly and even though he knew someone was there, he didn't quite know who.

"Hey," he croaked quietly, eyes still closed as he opened the fridge, looking in for some milk.

Nathan slowly looked up from his paper, watching Caleb for a moment before staring at his unfinished toast. "Hey," he replied softly, clearing his throat and folding the newspaper. "You're up early."

He glanced over his shoulder when he heard who it was. Caleb straightened slightly, a little more awake now. "Yeah." He blinked slightly at him, and then turned back to the fridge to get the carton of milk.

He closed the door and padded to the table, blinking the sleep out of his eyes even if he knew he'd return to bed just minutes after. "What're you doing up?" He asked before he took the first initial sip, leaning against one of the chairs.

Nathan inhaled deeply as he leaned back in his chair, resting his hands in his lap. "Mmm... nothing important. Had a bad dream or something and I couldn't get back to sleep," he explained, bringing one hand up to rub at his sore eyes.

He smiled suddenly as he noticed the cup in Caleb's hand. "Just had to get some milk, eh?" he teased quietly, cupping his chin as if studying the scene.

"You know it," he murmured, bringing it to his lips and then looking at him over the rim. "What dream? You look like shit."

Caleb glanced at his face, noticing the bags, and his tired expression. He drank once more and put the cup down, a milk moustache on his upper lip, unnoticed.

Nathan blinked in surprise and then chuckled, absently gazing down at his toast. "I don't remember anymore." He glanced up and chuckled again, this time at the sight of the stripe of milk above Caleb's lip. "C'mere," he murmured, gesturing for him to move closer. "You've got a little..." He reached up and rubbed at his own mouth in hopes that Caleb would become aware of his milk mustache.

Caleb frowned a bit, and then rolled his eyes affectionately as he straightened, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand. He moved closer, however, sitting in the seat beside him. "S'time is it?" He asked absently, and then took another sip just to have another moustache.

Nathan casually reached out, arms slinking around Caleb's waist and giving him a quick, fierce pull so that he was sitting in his lap rather than in the chair beside him. "Oh... I dunno. Must be six by now," he remarked, slightly furrowing his brows as he tried to calculate exactly how long he had been up now.

Caleb was in the process of taking another sip when he was jerked, but helped the move along by pushing himself onto his lap. He shifted until he settled between his thighs and leaned back some, just to feel his body heat.

"S'early," he mumbled quietly, staring at the table before them. He leaned back a bit more.

Nathan gently pressed his face to Caleb's back, slowly breathing in his warmth as he slid his arms up so that they were around his chest. "Hm..." he murmured against him, his voice soft and lazy. "Yeah... you want me to let you go back to sleep then?"

"I dunno," Caleb rumbled softly, eyes fluttering closed, "You comin' with?"

He grined a bit, turning his head a bit as if to look at him, giving up halfway as he contently put a hand on Nathan's outer knee, hand curling around it.

Nathan bounced his knee slightly at Caleb's touch, humming under his breath as he thought about this. "Yeah. My bed? I don't like your pillows," he quipped, slightly squeezing his arms around him.

"I like my pillows, yours are like fucking rocks," he murmured with a pout, eyes still closed tiredly. "But whatever."

He drank his last mouthful of milk before swallowing, leaving the glass on the table as he leaned his head back, murmuring against his jaw. "C'mon, before I fall asleep right here."

"Okay, okay!" Nathan shook his head a bit, a smile at one corner of his mouth as he released Caleb, giving his back a playful push as he slid out from under him and sauntered off towards his bedroom. He briefly glanced over his shoulder to make sure Caleb hadn't actually fallen asleep and smiled again.

He tiredly followed, feet making soft sounds against the wooden floor. He didn't bother to smile as he moved behind him, and then pushed him along by his hips when he thought Nathan was taking his time.
