Nocturne


Half limping to the piano in the middle of the dining room next to the wide stairs, Jamie sat down and began to play. Nocturne by Chopin filled the air and soon he felt warm breath puffing down his neck. Cody nuzzled deeper, murmuring in his ear, “Aren’t you supposed to rest?”

Never pausing, Jamie only tilted his head to allow Cody more access. “I’m not in pain.”

Cody must know he wasn’t, after all those painkillers.

“Still have to take it easy, Jamie. Your leg was busted. And you must be drowsy from those drugs.”

“I can’t leave you alone.” He shifted a bit, giving room for Cody on the bench.

“Alone?”

“Go eat your dinner. Just imagine yourself being in a fancy restaurant or something with music to accompany your meal.”

“You don’t eat.” It was a statement, not a question.

“No.” And it was a confirmation. Jamie kept playing. This was like a catharsis after all that had happened. “Don’t feel like eating.”

“Jamie.” Cody ran a hand over Jamie’s back before tightening his arm around his waist.

“Cody, please. I’m fine. I just feel – a bit woozy. You’re right, must be the drugs.” He kept on playing.

Cody tugged him closer. “Come on. Let’s get you to bed.”

Jamie rested his fingers but he didn’t get up. He laid his head on Cody’s shoulder instead and began to doze off.
