'What are you doing here?' he asked.

'Oh…' Mustang mumbled, turning away, 'nothing in particular…just……sitting.'

Ken frowned at him, raising an eyebrow.

'Why are you here?'

'It's peaceful here' Mustang said to him, 'don't you think?'

Ken stared at him for a few moments, before his attention drifted away, seeing the graveyard around them.

Everything was still, there was no breeze on this day, and the sun above them in the sky shone brightly down, lighting up the world below.

The grass around them was bright, the flowers dotted about the graveyard before the headstones were beautiful, and the sparrows flitting about the bushes here and there sung their melodies.

'It is' Ken mumbled, speaking to Mustang again, 'it is beautiful…'

Mustang smiled at him, glancing towards Ken only briefly, before looking away again.

'I know I live a wild life' he mumbled, 'but even I…at times…enjoy peace.' He breathed a heavy sigh then, closing his eyes for a moment, before opening them again. 'I love it here' he spoke, 'here…I get a different perspective of the world…and it is beautiful.'

Ken continued to watch him, saying nothing.

'I promise' Mustang said to him, suddenly changing the subject, 'I promise I'll behave myself. I'm trying to be sophisticated after all. Like you.'

Ken narrowed his eyes. 'I thought you didn't remember last night.'

Mustang faltered then, realising he had slipped up. He grinned then.

'Alright' he said. 'You caught me.'

Mustang rose to his feet, moving over to Ken, but stopping a few steps away.

'I love you' Mustang said to him. 'My feelings for you are genuine. I will make you see, but…' he smiled as he walked past him. 'I will give you space, I will respect your needs, as you want me to.'

He passed him by, pausing to glance back as Ken turned to face him.

'I love you Ken' Mustang told him. 'I love you.'

Mustang smirked, shoving his hands in his pockets. He turned and walked away, without another word.

Ken glared furiously after him, cheeks burning and balling his fists. He gritted his teeth, heart thumping in his chest.


Weeks passed, and to Ken's surprise, Mustang kept his word.

He still lived with Mustang, and went to college every day. His life returned to as normal a routine as it could have. He did not see his parents, and he did not see nor hear from either his brother or sister. It hurt him at first, but the pain was sl

owly beginning to ebb away.

But what he had told his siblings had been true. He was happy, despite everything.

One morning, on a day when he had no college, Ken spoke to Mustang.

'What do you mean you want a job?' Mustang asked him.

'I would have thought that it was self-explanatory' Ken replied flatly, cooking his breakfast slowly and watching Mustang who sat on the sofa.

He had slept on the sofa that night, having come home late as he had been out drinking.

'I want to earn money' Ken said to Mustang, flipping his egg over in the pan. 'I don't want to depend on you for food and everything. I want to provide for myself.'

Mustang sighed wearily, slumping back on the sofa and hooking his leg over the back.

'I suppose that makes some sense' he grumbled. 'What sort of job did you have in mind?'

'Anything' Ken replied. 'Just a few hours a week around my classes. I won't be in college forever. I have to learn to look after myself. I have to decide what to do with my life.'

Mustang watched him closely as he spoke, resting his arm across his forehead, staring up at the ceiling.

'Didn't you say you wanted to be a designer?' Mustang asked him.

'Yeah' Ken said. 'But in the meantime, I need money now. I have to graduate from college first, and get good grades; then I can pursue my dreams.'

Mustang listened to Ken talk, hearing the spit of the oil in the pan, he sighed deeply, closing his eyes and becoming still.

A few weeks later

'So you've got a job now' Chris said to him.

'Yeah' Ken replied, sipping on his coffee as the four of them sat at the table in the café. 'I was very lucky to find it actually.'

'Where is it then?' Neil asked him. 'Tell us.'

Ken grinned at him. He glanced towards the waitress as she approached their table, smiling as she took their empty cups, placing them on the small round tray she carried. She was a pretty young thing, slender with long brown hair tied into a plait and held by a large pink ribbon. She looked very smart in her white dress and black apron the female staff here wore.

'Is there anything else I can get for you?' she smiled sweetly at them.

'No thank you' Ken said to her. 'We're fine.'

She paused then, eyes lingering on him, before moving away.

Anthony leaned forwards in his chair to get a better look at her as she moved away; turning back to Ken once she had gone. 'You've got a job here?' he said.
