Title: Home
Fandom: RPS
Rating/Pairing: PG, Jared/Jensen. (It's friendship if you tilt your head and look at it from the right angle...)
Summary: Jared can't sleep, so he decides to be annoying instead, and Jensen doesn't seem to mind.

Jared's restless, not even able to sit still. He knows he should sleep (he's got an interview in the morning, and those go better when you can think) but instead he's pacing about the hotel room like a caged tiger, deliberately not looking at the clock to see how late it is.

His phone's in his hand before he realizes he's taken it out, and his fingers find the text messaging option, punch in a familiar number, types in a two-word message:

> u awake?

He presses send, and sits down, one leg jittering up and down as he waits for a response. He knows he'll get one; he always does. And without fail, a few minutes later, his phone bleeps.

> am now

On the heels of that message, another bleep:

> fucker

Jared grins widely; he can't help it. In his mind he's imagining Jensen lying sprawled in bed, squinting at the phone like he's regretting having opened it. Jared's leg stills, and he types back:

> u know u love me

A few minutes later, Jensen replies:

> :P

He waits for another reply, but nothing comes, so he sends another message back:

> so whatcha doing?

It takes him slightly by surprise when his phone, instead of giving the text-message bleep, rings. Jensen's ring tone. "Hey," Jared says, and he's grinning like an idiot for no good reason.

"I was trying to sleep," Jensen says, "but some fucker kept texting me." His voice is low and sleep-roughened, trying for cranky and missing by a mile because Jared can hear the returning grin. The sound of it warms him all the way through.

"How horrible," Jared says with solemn sympathy. "Whoever it was should be flogged for interrupting your beauty sleep."

Jensen gives a snort. "You're the one that needs beauty sleep. I'm gorgeous any time."

Jared's laugh takes him by surprise. "Go fuck yourself," he says fondly, still laughing.

"Any time," Jensen says promptly, cheerfully. Jared can practically see him -- hair mussed from the pillow, eyes half-lidded, body sprawled carelessly across the bed, maybe with one bare foot tucked up under the other leg -- and he aches with the need to be there. Not for any particular reason, just a deep-seated need for *home*. Actors are used to traveling -- for location shoots, for interviews, for publicity -- but that doesn't mean that they don't also have a home, something that means more than a place where they stay.

For Jared, home is where the dogs are, and home is where Jensen is, and right now it's the same damn place; and he's not there, and that's an almost physical void tugging at him.

"So, uh," he says into the phone, even though he has no idea what he wants to say.

Jensen snores loudly at him; not a real snore (Jared knows he's not actually asleep), but one of his fake ones, and Jared grins again. Hasn't really stopped grinning, really.

"Okay, yeah, fine," he says, without rancor, "go back to sleep," and he snaps the phone closed. Holding it's kind of like holding Jensen's hand, in some weird way, and that's stupid as fuck but at least Jared's restlessness has stopped, and he actually feels like he can sleep.

He gets into the (cold hard too-short) hotel room bed, and it helps to pretend that Jensen's there with him, that if he rolls over there'd be a warm body there. He's still holding the phone loosely in one hand, and so when it bleeps at him a short time later, he wakes up from the twilight-sleep doze he'd fallen into.

> yeah, i miss u too

Jared's still holding the phone when he falls back to sleep.
