Jude finds himself nuzzling against him, still breathing heavily, his body almost limp with tire. But he holds him tightly all the same, loathe to let go of him for more than just the reasoning that he might topple over the second his feet touch the ground. That was definitely part of it, but for the most part he just wants to hold onto him longer.

It's even more of mistake to cuddle him close but he does it anyway, despite his instincts telling him he should just leave him here to clean up and go to bed. But he doesn't, he wraps his arms tight around him and easily supports his entire weight, snuggling against his neck with a small sigh. It would break his heart when he found out. He would hate him for sure. The thought comforted him in odd ways. At least then Jude would see him for who he really was, and he would realize that none of this meant anything. No one could love the real Alvin. He holds Jude close and pretends, for just a moment, that Jude could love the real him.

Jude is close to passing out, finally, so he steels himself and sort of shimmies out of his arms, trying to stand upright on his own and wobbling a little bit. He wipes off his mouth, sighing faintly and adjusting his pants to pull his boxers back up. It's embarrassing to be seen like this, even when it's by the person who made him this way.

"We...we can't... tell any of them." He says, biting his lip (still red from Alvin's abuse of it).

Alvin snorts in response, the mere thought of anyone discovering that he had done this causing him to shudder. They might kill him more dead for this than for anything else he had planned.

"No argument from me," he says and he fixes his own pants, casual as ever.

He starts to head back to the inn, turning away from him, but lingers momentarily, trying to find what he wants to say to him.

"...th-that was... good." He whispers, not sure if those are the right words.

Alvin wraps an arm around his shoulder and grins at him.

"Glad you enjoyed yourself," he means it, even if it when he says it it sounds patronizing.

His face is still dark red, and the contact with him, after that... well. His stomach flip-flops a little bit.

"Well... I'm definitely going to be able to sleep..." He mutters, maybe lightly tracing Alvin's hand as they walk.

Alvin chuckles, almost having forgotten that was how this had all started, as teasing as he had been when he said it.

"You and me both, kid."

He might lean into his arm just a little bit.

"...Would you, uh... would you kiss me again?" He asks, voice quiet.

Alvin stares at him and he's afraid Jude will read his apprehension like an open book. So he leans down and kisses him again, and this time he's gentle and soft and considerate. It's what Jude deserves, but it's a mistake to give it to him. To indulge in pretending that he has feelings for him, and he has to remind hinself, sharply, that he doesn't.

Jude leans into his lips, enjoying how carefully Alvin kisses him. He knows it's not the best idea to do this, but he's all he can think of, after that. He's not completely sure of what he feels for him, as their lips part and he opens his eyes to look to him, but he knows it's a warm feeling he wouldn't mind having again.

Alvin pulls away even though he could easily get carried away again. He'd better not; he'd surely already tortured him enough.

He cups his face and says, "you should get some sleep."

He wishes he didn't really like how Alvin's hands felt against his face.

"...Y-You're right. I'm sorry." He mutters, pulling away from him and trying to walk a little bit faster.

-x-

It's seemed like sleepless nights were just going to be his future for the rest of his life. It was no surprise this time, though. Alvin had never felt conflicted before, at least not like this.

What was he thinking, jumping in front of him like that? He carefully checked his ribs and inhaled sharply when they were still tender as could be. They'd probably feel much better if he could manage to get some sleep. Was he trying to get himself killed or was he trying to atone? Even he didn't know. Did he want forgiveness at this point or did he just want to die and get it over with?

He sighed deeply and leaned over the edge of the railing on looking the city. There weren't enough beds, that's what he had said when he had snuck off to the inn for the night, instead of sleeping in the manor. How could he look Driselle in the eyes, after all he'd done? Or, consequently, hadn't done.

"Everyone should get as much rest as they can."

Of course, as much as Milla's words rang true, Jude was still wide awake this late. It happened more often than not, especially lately with such a burden on their backs, so when even Milla was starting to notice, he had a problem.

Not that it changed things. He still found himself outside, staring at the night sky like it might mean something. Like it might explain how he's supposed to feel about him. It doesn't, not really, but it is a calming, temperate night and it does help him feel a little better.

He's probably still hurt, he thinks quietly, because I didn't go heal him when I should have and then he ran off. And as much as he knows this, he doesn't know if he could really even face him. Of course, that's when he spots him out of the corner of his eye, leaning on the railing.

Alvin bristles as he becomes faintly aware of a presence on the periphery of his vision. He moves to reach into his jacket, for his gun, before he realizes he left his jacket and his weapons in the inn. Stupid. But at this point, he wasn't entirely all that worried about dying.

It's Jude, anyway, he realizes once he turns to see him and Jude isn't likely to kill him. Surprisingly, after all he'd done, Jude still didn't want to kill him. Caught in a lie, betrayed them twice now...twice recently, twice that they know about, anyway.

He opens his mouth to say something to him, but decides against it and instead hopes Jude hasn't noticed him yet and if he does, he decides against coming over to him. He wasn't entirely sure could be said, anyway.

Jude watches him, resting his chin on a palm as he leans forward on the bench by the inn. Judging by his posture, he is indeed still hurt pretty badly. A twinge of guilt runs through him, and though he knows he'll probably reject it, he stands up and walks towards him, arms crossed over his chest in a warming fashion, not an angry fashion. Certainly, he's still bitter towards him for the things he's done and tried to claim as 'helping', but even so... he can tell there's a reason.

"Should you really be walking around right now?" He asks, brow furrowed tight.

Alvin waves his hand dismissively, and he does his best to avoid looking at Jude, but he's sure that it's pretty clear he's in some pain by the way he awkwardly shifts his weight onto the right side of his body.

"Should you?" he asks, raising an eyebrow. "It's past your bedtime, kid."

"Don't try to deflect the questions when the answers are obvious." He retorts. "It's past yours too. Why didn't you let any of us look at it? None of the regular medics are as skilled as Elize and I are." It would be a brag if it weren't completely accurate.

"Let me heal you. It'll get infected if you don't hurry." He says firmly. Even if the idea of being so close to him... again... is jarring, he knows it's what he has to do.

"Don't." he says. "It's fine."

Alvin can barely stand standing next to him, much less having him near him all alone, in the middle of the night, again.

"Or don't you remember what happened last time we were alone together like this?"

"I don't care. You're not dying because of me, Alvin." He clenches his fist. Of course he remembers. It's all he can think about, some days.

"The blood is almost seeping through your bandages." He only approaches further. "I can tell."

Alvin flinches slightly at how assertive Jude has gotten in just a short amount of time. Or, maybe he's finally just sick of his shit. Either way, it's not an unwelcome change in his demeanor towards him.

"Fine, if you insist, Doctor Jude," he concedes, much as it pains him to do so, to think of Jude coming closer to him still is painful for a multitude of reason, even if Alvin likes to pretend it's simple enough.

But, inevitably, he pulls his shirt out from where it's tucked into his pants and lets Jude have a look at his chest and his ribs. Jude wasn't wrong; very nearly the blood had soaked through the bandages now, and small droplets were running down his side.

Jude drops to a knee and examines the scratch--scratch is the accurate word for it, being from claws and wings, but it's definitely not simply a scratch anymore. He's got a few broken ribs on the side, too. Alvin fought that whole fight pretending like this was nothing. Jude can't stop from sighing at his idiocy.

"What I can do right now is at least stabilize it, but we need to go back to your room in the inn so I can get something to clean it. It'll be easier on you if you're laying down, too." The idea of being in place like that alone with him is daunting, but for now he knows it's what he has to do. He rises back up and looks into his eyes.

"Jude," he begins and then he averts his eyes. It was a mistake, a horrible one to be alone with Jude, especially in the privacy of his room at the inn. But he knows Jude won't relent and so he lapses into silence and let's his shirt drop back down to cover his bandages for the time being. He turns and heads toward the inn, knowing all too well he shouldn't allow this to happen.

Once they're in his room he shuts the door behind them and pulls his shirt off entirely, because by now it's covered in blood anyway, and he tosses it aside. His jacket and his weapons are stacked haphazardly on a chair nearby. He sits on the edge of his bed and pretends that it isn't horrendously awkward to be alone with Jude.

Jude pulls the only other chair over to the bed, having grabbed some disinfectant from the innkeeper before they'd made it to Alvin's room. It is awkward, of course it is, but all the same he's committed himself to this and would feel sick to his stomach if he didn't follow through and help him.

"Lie down, Alvin. You'll open it worse." He says, but it's almost a command at this point.
