'What do you want to do in the future?' Mustang interrupted.

'Me?' Ken was caught suddenly off-guard. 'I…'

'Come on' Mustang prompted playfully. 'Tell me. You've never told me before what you wanted to do when you leave college. Are you going to go to university?'

Ken sat up against the headboard, hugging his knees to his chest

'I….I've always wanted to be a graphics designer' he admitted. But…my family had other plans for me. They wanted me to work for the church.' Ken smirked then. 'Maybe this is a good thing…me being here…I was devastated when they kicked me out…but maybe…in the long run……it's for the best. I've never realised how overpowering and controlling they were until I stood up for myself.'

'You think it's a good thing being in my bed?' Mustang smirked, having only caught part of what Ken had just said.

'I'm sad they're gone from my life' Ken continued, choosing to ignore Mustang's comment. 'But I think that in time…I won't miss them anymore.' Ken smiled. 'I'll miss my siblings…but they'll be alright without me.' He looked up at Mustang then, who was leaning back on his hand. 'I've never told anyone before what I wanted to do once I left college…you're the only one.'

Mustang turned very slowly to face him, a sly smile spreading over his face as he watched Ken silently.

'What do you want to do in the future?'

Mustang just stared at him.

'Mustang?'

'I don't have a future.'

'What do you mean?'

'I just…' Mustang paused then, biting his lip as he thought. 'I live only for the now.'

'Yeah' Ken said flatly. 'I can tell.' Ken sighed. 'You know, you could be a better person if you tried, if you had some self respect and didn't act like an animal.'

'You think I act like an animal?' Mustang repeated, sounding genuinely concerned, as if he hadn't realised it before.

'You don't care about yourself' Ken pressed. 'You're cheap. Doing those things to who knows how many people. Can you even count all the people you've been with on your hands?'

Mustang frowned. He didn't look at Ken, but Ken could tell that he was really thinking about this, and taking his words seriously.

'No one's ever been so honest with me' Mustang mumbled after a time, 'they just…' he trailed off, before raising his head again. 'Do you care about me?'

'What?'

'Do you care about me?'

'I…' Ken began, '…I guess I d

o.'

Mustang stared at him. Tears began to prickle in his eyes.

Ken blinked, staring back in shock at this.

'I'm sorry' Mustang huffed, turning away sharply, grinding his teeth. 'It's the drink.' He went quiet for a moment. 'I have sex with a lot of men' he said casually, 'but I don't love any of them, and none of them love me.' He turned back to Ken then, eyes clear. 'You're different. I meant it when I said before that I loved you…I do…even more so now that…' he clenched his teeth. 'I will make you say that you love me' Mustang told him. 'You're so interesting. You are like a puzzle to me…'

'You can't make someone love you.'

'I know' Mustang said. 'But feelings can change.' He rose from the bed then, moving away and towards the door. He paused, glancing back. 'Sorry to have woken you' he said to him quietly. 'I'll leave you alone now.'

He went away, closing the door after him.

Ken stared at the closed door for several seconds, before lying back on the bed.

He couldn't sleep properly for the rest of that night, and in the room opposite his, Mustang tossed and turned.

'Uuuuhhhh!'

'What's wrong' Ken asked Mustang as he ate his breakfast, sitting at the table.

'I've got the mother of all hangovers' Mustang groaned, slouching across the kitchen and dropping heavily into the seat.

He slumped forward then, resting with the side of his face pressed against the tabletop and dribbling.

Ken pushed his cereal away and leaned around to get a better look at Mustang, seeing his sunken eyes.

'Didn't you sleep?'

'No…'

'You came into my room last night.'

'Did I?'

'Yes' Ken replied flatly.

'I don't remember…'

Ken stared at him with a flat expression, leaning on his elbows with the spoon stuck in his mouth.

….convenient……

Later that morning, they walked to college together. Mustang walked briskly beside Ken, striding with his hands in his pocket, slowing down; then skipping ahead, before slowing down again, then skipping ahead.

'Will you stop that?' Ken glowered at him. 'It's annoying.'

'Oh so you noticed me' Mustang gleamed, flashing his perfect teeth in a grin.

'How could I not?' Ken slowed to a stop. 'What are you trying to do?'

'I just want to be noticed.' Mustang spoke, sounding sincere now. 'That's all I want. I want you to notice me, to know I exist.'
