Presses his forehead against the other's gently, "My Hawk."

A soft smile spreads over his lips at the words and hums softly, “That I am.” the archer looking up into Bane’s eyes. ” ‘S been too long.”

"It has, my Hawk." He says quietly, wrapping his arms around the other man, pulling him close, allowing himself to sink into the affection he knows will be offered.

"Brother." Barsad’s voice belied no surprise but in truth he had not expected to see Bane return so quickly from his sabbatical. "Are you well?"

"Yes." Bane says, looking up at the sky. "I admit, though…having removed myself from the world for so long…I no longer know my place in it." 

Barsad nodded. That was simple enough to understand. All that had happened in the last few years had left many of the soldiers questioning the path. Himself included. “Where would you like that place to be?”

"At your side, if it is still possible." The mercenary says. His eyes crinkle again in good humor. "You’ve always been my guiding hand, brother. I think I need you more than ever."

"To the mountains. I meditated, removed myself from the world and all it’s degeneracy." Bane nods to his brother and begins walking. "You were missed greatly, Barsad. I had come to take your company for granted, my friend."

"Well it is good you have learned your lesson, Brother." Barsad fell into step behind Bane, watching carefully, waiting perhaps for a directive.

"Yes." Bane says, looking up at the sky. "I admit, though…having removed myself from the world for so long…I no longer know my place in it."

"Brother." Barsad’s voice belied no surprise but in truth he had not expected to see Bane return so quickly from his sabbatical. "Are you well?"

"I feel stronger now." Bane says, reaching out to grasp the other man’s shoulder. "I have had a good reason to anchor myself back in the proper mindset." Bane’s eyes crinkle like he’s smiling at Barsad.

"That is good news. Where did you go?" He answered the smile with one of his own. The time for worrying for his Brother’s safety was clearly over.

"To the mountains. I meditated, removed myself from the world and all it’s degeneracy." Bane nods to his brother and begins walking. "You were missed greatly, Barsad. I had come to take your company for granted, my friend."

Bane bows his head, then nods. “Yes. I am well, brother. I did not feel I was myself…it was necessary I leave before I became…someone false.” 

"And now?" He asked calmly.

"I feel stronger now." Bane says, reaching out to grasp the other man’s shoulder. "I have had a good reason to anchor myself back in the proper mindset." Bane’s eyes crinkle like he’s smiling at Barsad.

So close.

You’re so close that you can taste his exhale, breathe him in, kiss his eyelashes - but can you truly believe this is real? That’s he’s right here next to you, warm and tangible and utterly Arthur, looking at you like he’s wondering the same? Not Arthur the soldier, the point man, but Arthur with the brightness in his eyes, the dip in his cheek. Arthur with the chuckle in his voice, the mysteriousness, even though he lets you read him like an open book.

        ( Is this love? This thing devouring you from the inside out, this thing that keeps drawing you in? )  

If this is a dream, you think, and he echoes the words against your mouth.

"If this is a dream," he says softly, like it’s your little secret. "I never wanna wake up."

He touches his face - a gentle pass of fingers against his mouth - it isn’t ruined. He can breathe without assistance, without drugs, and Bane sighs out softly. “I do not wish to awaken either, darling.” 

Bane knows it’s fake. Knows none of this is real. But what is the harm is dreaming? Blue eyes focus on the younger man, and Bane is drawing Arthur close for a kiss they will never share in the real world.

A real world full of guns and pain, a world where they are on opposite sides, and can never truly be one without the other sacrificing all that is dear to them. And they are both too stubborn to make such sacrifice.

That’s not only Barsad bait, my sweet bird.
