It makes sense, Jamie tells himself as he spreads the wet mess that trails him down the hall to his room; he should let the cocoa cool, anyhow, to keep himself from burning his mouth. It's hard to wait then you're all-the-way cold and there's something in front of you that could warm you so easily.

And that's what it feels like to see Geoffrey just now, too. Jamie doesn't feel quite right disturbing the layer of warmth wrapping Geoff with the soggy hug he had been considering giving him.

He wants a shower, failing that, but doesn't want to wait. Knows even lukewarm water will scald with his skin so chilled. In the end he simply strips down and towels off, dressing again in dry clothes and hanging his wet ones in the W.C. uncertainly. He grabs his Jolly Roger and wraps it about his own shoulders, then pads back out to see if he can't get some of Geoffrey's warm.

Geoffrey stifles a yawn behind his hand and dips his index finger into one of the mugs, testing it's temperature. "Perfect," He announces, to himself, and takes them both by the sturdy handles. Not too hot, not too cold, just perfect, for my Goldilocks, he twitters to himself, feeling fuzzy-minded and heated from the inside out.

That heat rushes to his cheeks and pinkens the skin just below his throat (a natural response, one he can't control, and he likes it that way) when Jamie reappears. "Shall we take these into the den?" Geoffrey says, handing Jamie one of the mugs to warm his white-tipped fingers. He huddles close to Jamie, takes the mug from Jamie without thinking, so that Jamie can get comfortable without danger of sloshing.

He reminds himself of his mum sometimes, these days, but Jamie's just so... so there, and Geoffrey worries so much of the time, and it's easy to want to take care of Jamie.
