MOAR PHICTION.

Title: Communication
Fandom: Black Hawk Down
Pairing: None - Nelson, Twombly.
Summary: Since Nelson was deafened, he and Twombly have their own ways of communicating.


Middle of the night, Nelson's just about awake. He feels the bunk shift, aware that Twombly is climbing down from his bunk. Nelson perks up slightly, and catches his bunkmate's foot.
Where're you going?
Twombly grins, and shakes his head, dropping to the floor. He flicks his hand to one side.
Nowhere. Scoot.
Nelson nods and rolls over, his eyes heavy, barely stifling a sudden yawn that's emerged from nowhere. Twombly's smile grows fractionally larger, but he shakes his head again. Nelson looks sheepish.
Sorry, man, it's not you.
Twombly holds up his hands.
It's fine. It's good that you're finally sleeping.
The deaf sniper nods, but eyes the other man carefully.
You sure?
A firm nod, and he takes Nelson's cold hand in his own as he eases into the bunk beside his best friend.
Definitely.
Nelson rolls over, and presses his forehead to Twombly's, the two of them knowing how wrong it would look were anyone to walk in right now.

But it's not like that - it never was, and it never will be. There's nothing romantic - but there's something strong there.
Twombly releases Nelson's hand, and wraps his arms loosely around the sniper.
Warm breath on Nelson's face, as Twombly's eyes slide shut.
Love you.
A smile.
Love you too.

Awwww... I actually love the gen-ness of this, the bond between them is really moving. I thought the banality of the dialogue also worked really well - it got the friendship across really well.
