“Mm… no…” Roy almost whined under his breath, moving so he could sit up and continue nuzzling Dick. He sighed and closed his eyes, resting their foreheads together. His hands came up to cup the boy’s cheeks, simply sitting there and enjoying his company. ”I’m tired, but I don’t want to sleep…” He frowned, eyes still closed. He wanted to stay up with him, hear his laugh, see his smile some more. Maybe he’d sing for him again and Roy would be able to… Actually- ”Dick?” He opened his eyes and smiled a little at him, his fingers caressing his cheeks. ”Would you mind it very much if you held me tonight? Just tonight, I want to hear your heartbeat more.” He chuckled under his breath and leaned down so he could rest on his shoulder, his eyes fluttering closed again. ”As weird as it sounds, I miss that…” God, why was he so tired? He really didn’t want to sleep yet. He was literally falling asleep on Dick, though. That couldn’t be attractive or wanted. He frowned and sat up a little, looking at Dick for a moment. He was going to ask him for a few more things, then realized he was being very clingy and possibly very annoying, so he shook his head and laid back on Dick. ”I don’t want to sleep, but I don’t want to fall asleep on you. I’m sorry. I think I’ll be heading to bed now…”
“I wouldn’t mind doing that at all.” He never asked Dick to do that, and really he didn’t mind at all. Dick didn’t mind doing anything for him- No, not a single bit. He hoped Roy knew he would do anything for him. “But it looks like you’re about to fall asleep on me. Go on and head to bed, I’ll be there later ok.?” Dick frowned and kissed the top of his head.”I know you don’t want to sleep or anything, but just go. I don’t care.” He nudged him up, then sent the archer away. Dick knew he himself wouldn’t be sleepy or going to bed for a while, but Roy needed his sleep. So Dick sat alone in the living room for a few hours more, watching whatever was on tv until he felt himself at least half yawn. He turned the tv off and slowly walked back to the bedroom, and once he was sitting in bed he paused. Right, Roy had wanted him to hold him. He got up quickly to check on the baby, the walked back and got under the covers. He wrapped his arms around the archer, and felt him shift and turn over. He laid his head back on one of the pillows, and waited for sleep to come… If it ever would come.
