Hold Me (Snund)
Prompt dragged out of Chairmode. Not exactly what you asked for, but I tried. ^^’
~ ( o_o ) ~
Scott let a sad chord ring through the house, an equally sad melody following behind it. He was beaten down right now, a terrible day at work and an even worse week. He’d call it a record considering how bad the last few days were.
His promotion went to some newbie, customers had been getting in his face for no reason, and he needed to have the brakes in his car replaced soon or he’d fail his rapidly approaching inspection.
“Fuck.” His head lolled back, plucking away while staring at the ceiling. Scott couldn’t really play much, a few connected notes here and there, linking up to completely different tunes, musical discord to reflect the mood.
Snake was coming down the hall, soft footfalls in sync with his strumming. Scott wasn’t even feeling up to doing shit with him later, barely wanted to be in the same place as him now. He didn’t want to Snake to see him like this. The older man picked up on the hint, going straight past into the kitchen. He called out from out of sight.
“Soup?” He could hear bowls clattering around. Did his opinion matter?
“Yeah, sure.” More banging, but it sounded like a pot falling into the sink. Snake was around the corner and in front of him in a heartbeat. Scott didn’t bother to sit up. “What?”
“Really? Nothing to say about that?”
“Should I?” This certainly wouldn’t make the man leave him alone. He couldn’t summon enough fucks to be sarcastic right now though. Too much energy, the day already draining him past dry.
“Never thought I’d say it, but yeah. I expected some dumb crack.” Snake sat down beside him, and Scott sighed as loudly as he could. “So are you going to tell me what’s wrong?”
“Nothing.” He wouldn’t sit down and embarrass himself in front of resident ‘hard ass’ Snake. It’d just been a bad week that started to get to him. Because Snake was so fucking perfect and shit never gets to him and it was already bad enough he wore the damn pants so he definitely shouldn’t make it worse by acting like a girl over a few bad days.
“Jund… You suck at lying.” Snake winced at the harsh strum, almost like nails on a chalkboard.
“You wouldn’t get it anyway dick.” He pushed off, dropping the guitar on the coffee table, retreating to the shared bedroom. Not shared tonight. Snake could sleep on the fucking couch. He slammed the door and fell onto the mattress.

“That could have gone better.” Snake glanced down towards the bedroom. No response from the stubborn brunette. Snake ran a hand through his hair.
He grabbed the neck of the discarded instrument, hand grasping around the strings, carrying it with him to the door. Snake laid back against it, sliding down the frame, legs bent. The guitar sat in his lap. He didn’t know much, but maybe just enough to fix this.
The first attempt didn’t go well, hand slipping. There was a thud from hitting the side of the acoustic guitar. The second didn’t fair much better when he forgot to press down any notes.
The third went better, finally making a pleasant sound.
This melody was different than Scott’s, something hopeful, uplifting. Snake smiled; he could hear their bed creaking. At least he wasn’t playing for someone unconscious. There wasn’t a song, just pleasant noise to get Scott to speak again.
“You know…” He kept his voice as soft as he could, not wanting to set the volatile boy off. “I have shit days too.”
“I can’t tell.” It was muffled behind the door.
“Don’t exactly like to announce it.”
“Oh, because I always love to!” That hadn’t been the right thing to say. Scott always ended up in Snake’s arms, never the other way around in these past few months, but the taller never held it against him. Everyone had those moments. They dealt with things differently. If Scott needed to be cuddled with to get over something, fine. His boyfriend could be weak around him.
“It’s not like that.” Perhaps he should have given Scott the same courtesy.
“That’s what it fucking looks like.” The music stopped. Snake opened the door. Scott had a few tears in his eyes, wiping them off vehemently. His arms were crossed, still refusing to let go.
Snake laid the guitar by the nightstand, sitting on the bed. He held Scott’s arm, leading him to stand in front of Snake. Gently, he pulled the arms apart, uncrossing them, and holding them wider, while pulling him closer at the same time. He could hear a few complaints, but Snake cut them off when he pressed his forehead into Scott’s chest.
Snake let the tension release from his shoulders. His hands grabbed the sides of Scott’s shirt, huffing a sigh of frustration. Hesitant arms draped around his shoulders.
“Just…hold me this time.”
At first, he only leaned on his stiff boyfriend, too caught off guard to do anything more, or to pull out any of his usual sarcastic jokes. Then the hug tightened, rubbing Snake’s back.
Snake felt Scott kneel down. The shorter tilted his head upwards, kissing Snake on the forehead. The two scooted backwards onto the bed, Scott falling back onto the mattress, Snake moved to the side. His head stayed on Scott’s chest, still held by the thin arms. A hand combed through his longer hair.
“Don’t be.” They sank down further into the bed. The worry drifted away, Snake more peaceful than he had been in awhile, Scott as well. No need to shift, this position comfortable by itself, they drifted off to sleep.

Happy Late B-Day Chairmode <3<3<3
