Bprooftop


The roof of the hostel can be accessed via one of the fire escape doors on the top floor, leading directly out onto the flat rooftop and one of the best views of muggle London you can find. It looks prettier at sunset, though.

For once, it's her turn to be perched on the edge of the rooftop, kicking her legs back and forth like a lazy swimmer as she takes in the night air. It's been an interesting few days, to say the least, but it feels almost fraudulent to be sat out here without Az beside her; it isn't her family who is suffering right now, isn't her elder brother turning up to wreak havoc. And yet she's never felt more drained in her life. There's a multitude of factors which could be contributing to it, each of which she's perfectly aware of - it's been almost a year since her parents disappeared, which still hardly feels real; her younger brothers might be being adopted out to America and only bothered to tell her yesterday; and Az, who never seems to be able to catch a break, needs a solid support system. She can't be- be like this. Sat on a rooftop at midnight, trying not to cry. Creeping out of bed in an attempt not to stir him had felt strange enough, let alone being sat out here in solitude, but sometimes the fresh (well, as fresh as London can be) air and its soporific effect is the perfect antidote. Sometimes.

Let's be real, it's hard to creep out of bed and not wake Az. He's always been a light sleeper, more out of necessity than anything, and an empty bed is enough of an oddity that he didn't stay asleep for long. It's not hard to figure out that Billie's gone to the rooftop after he realises she's not in the kitchen, so he's grabbed two hoodies from his their room and gone out after her. "What's wrong?" is all he says to announce his presence, taking up his usual place beside her and offering her the spare hoodie. It's always cold on the roof. "And don't say nothing, I'm not stupid."

She senses his arrival minutes before it occurs, of course; that's not even a Seer thing anymore, it's just a Billie thing. And it gives her ample time to blink back any tears that were threatening to spill and make herself look less small and feeble, though it's clear her efforts are wasted when he introduces himself like that. "It's really not that big of a deal! Honest. You should go back to bed, you've had a rough week." Still, she accepts the hoodie; it is cold out here, and it smells like him, that distant fog of cigarette smoke as she slips it over her head and thrusts her arms into the sleeves. "I just wanted fresh air more than anything. And yes, before you wisecrack, I'm aware that's pretty much impossible in London. But it's the next best thing, okay?" She's grinning as she says it, looking over at him, well aware that she's rambling but what the hell. He has much bigger things to worry about at the minute.

Az likes to think he knows Billie well enough to see through her efforts to distract from a problem, and he proves himself right this time, responding to her ramble with his customary frown. "I mean, clearly it is a big deal," he says, scrutinising her face. If it wasn't a big deal she wouldn't be out on the rooftop by herself, would she? He can count the number of times she's done this since the start of their relationship on one hand, after all. And if there's one thing Az cares more about than his own drama it's making sure that Billie is okay. "Whether I've had a rough week or whatever doesn't really matter. What's wrong?"

Nobody hates lying more than she does, especially to Az of all people - it feels awful just to pretend like everything's okay, which is something he does without even thinking, saying I'm fine like a reflex - but sometimes it's for the greater good, right? There's no need to stress him out any more than he already is. But it's difficult to maintain any sort of facade when he's there, and looking at her like that, and Billie crumbles almost immediately after he asks that question. Her shoulders slump, smile sliding off her face as she leans into him slightly, tucking her hands into the sleeves of the hoodie. "It's really nothing. A lot's happened this week, that's all. It's- a lot to take in at once." That's close enough. "Are you okay? And don't you say you're fine, either."

Az slips his arm around her waist when she leans into him, shuffling into a better position. With the number of times they've done this, it's a reflex to him now, fitting himself and his life around Billie's. "I've been worse," he says, giving a one-shouldered shrug. It's not even a lie. This doesn't even feature in his top three worst weeks ever; no, most of those were last year. Which really says something, doesn't it? That his dad can die and he doesn't even think it's that bad. "Stop trying to change the subject. We're talking about you."

Feeling him pull her close feels like a green light to fully tuck herself into his side, comforted by the touch as always; he's her safe place, he always has been, even before they were together. Even before they were friends. That throwaway comment of being worse makes her insides churn just a little - she's seen the scars plenty of times, heard all the stories but the thought of Az being hurt in any way makes Billie want to bawl, and she's well aware that she has to be careful in this fragile state as she's in genuine danger of brushing against an old scar and having a vision of how it got there. Merlin, that would probably tip her over the edge at this point. "I hate that. I hate that you've been worse." Normally she would be able to maintain her usual bubbliness but here? It feels pointless. It's difficult to keep up that glass-half-full approach when every corner seems to have monsters hiding behind them. "Your dad just- and your brother's wreaking havoc and- sorry. You don't need reminding."

"It's really not that bad," he tries, because she sounds like she's on the edge of tears and he really doesn't want her to cry over him, of all people. It's not even that much of a lie; once he located Sam and calmed down enough from the initial shock of Elijah finding them to accept her belief he wasn't coming back, it all became much more manageable. As for his dad- well, that's something he almost feels like he shouldn't share, even with her. Mostly because it's a tangled mess of emotions he doesn't want to poke even with a ten-foot pole. "Is that really what's got you so upset? It can't just be that." That doesn't make sense.

She'd never be upset at Az for not wanting to share something with her; she's not that type of person, never has been, and she's always made it clear that he need never feel obliged to tell her details that he doesn't feel comfortable sharing. Merlin knows he's earned his right to privacy after everything he's been through. "I don't like seeing you upset. If anybody in the world deserves a break, it's you." He is as comfortable as ever, a barrier against the wind and the bitter chill of the air, and Billie brings her knees up to her chest to try and squirm further into his side. "But, um- I suppose there's just- lots of little things building up, y'know? I'll be okay! Please try not to worry about me. It's not even a done deal yet, like, it was just a suggestion- the agency told me a few days ago but they said nothing was set in stone so I'm just overreacting. And it's not like portkeys don't exist, right? I'm sure they'd make me one. I think-" Ugh, she's rambling again. It feels like a defence mechanism more than the inability to articulate herself, and she clamps her lips together upon realising before deciding screw it, she might as well just say it. "I think my brothers are moving to America. I think. I don't know yet. It's a possibility."

At her assertion he huffs an exasperated breath, leaning down to kiss her hair and saying, "Thanks, but I'm really fine." He's perfectly happy to keep playing her wind barrier, especially when she curls into his side and starts speaking. It's got the air of something that's been bottled up, and he's used enough to Billie's quirks by now to listen intently until she finds her way to the root of the matter. "I don't think you're overreacting," he says, once he's certain she's done talking. "That's a lot. What do you mean, it's not a big deal? America's still another continent. Have you spoken to your brothers about what they think of it?"

His reaction is blissfully calm, a nice sedative for her racing mind, but talking about it feels like breaking a dam and Merlin, she's been fretting about this far more than she'd ever realised. Maybe the dreams are how it's been manifesting itself: those horribly vivid dreams of her brothers moving away, no goodbye text, disappearing just like their parents did- yes, that has to be it. Because if they're prophetic in any way, Billie's not exactly sure that she's going to survive the next month or so. "I haven't had chance yet. The agency told me and I wanted to go down and see them but I didn't want to leave you- and not because I don't think you can't take care of yourself, Merlin, of course you can. Better than anyone. But I just- I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if anything happened and I wasn't there. If Elijah had shown up and things got ugly. I knew something was going to happen, and I didn't want to just leave you to face it all on your own." Her face scrunches up as she admits it, feeling as sheepish as ever; she wouldn't have been any use if something violent had gone down, after all.

"What?" Az asks, aghast. "No. You said yourself Elijah's not coming back, didn't you? Your brothers are much more important than any of that shit, right now. Of course you should go see them." Merlin, he can't believe that she's been dealing with this herself the past few days, and he had no idea. He really can't fathom why she wouldn't just go. "And even if he did, I can handle him. He's a muggle." He pauses, aware of the way his tone changed - always changes - at the word. He really is trying to not, promise. "How long have you been dealing with this by yourself?"

As far as she's aware, Elijah isn't returning any time soon, though she wouldn't be surprised if this is the day her intuition decides to become faulty and he shows up in the doorstep, a looming figment of all Az's bad memories. Their combined luck has been dreary enough so far, it seems like a fitting conclusion. His horror seems misplaced, though, if anything; the way his tone shifts in intonation on the word muggle is nothing new, and something they've discussed many times to partial avail (though it feels like Elijah's reappearance might just reverse most of that progress), but that's minor compared to how shocked he is at her keeping it to herself. Of course she did? Why would she bother him with this, an issue that is relatively miniscule next to his current dilemmas, and just add to his stress? "Only a couple days," Billie says, the confusion evident in her voice. "I just- I didn't want you have to worry about me on top of everything. You've got enough on your plate at the minute."

"No offence," he begins, still confused at her motivations for keeping this to herself. She can't actually think that, can she? That's ridiculous. "But of course I do - I'm dating you because I want to worry about you. You shouldn't keep all this to yourself just because you think I can't handle it on top of the other stuff. What's the point of dating if you don't let me help you? This is a two-way street." He completely misses how hypocritical he sounds; he does share things, after all. He texted her this time, and he tells her when he thinks things are important. Maybe not all the time, but usually it's nothing of that much consequence. "You've really just been sitting on this? Merlin, Billie."

Though he is being a tad hypocritical - she is neither upset or cruel enough to bring up his prior disappearing act, though even that has been dramatically coloured after recent events - it barely registers with Billie, as she's too... stunned? Caught off-guard? By Az's response. Not that she'd ever put it past him to be caring; Merlin, he's had her back since before she can even remember, before they knew each other's names. It's just a little strange, when your main purpose in life is to worry about others, to hear another person worrying about you. Even if that person is the one you're head over heels for. She goes to speak but nothing comes out but a brief stutter, pushing aside the self-derogatory feelings that arise (of course you should have told him, Billie, he's your boyfriend) and nodding, satisfied. "Sorry. I didn't mean- sorry. I think I'm just used to-" She cuts herself off with a scoff, mind instantly going back to Cameron and Brad and all the other boys she spilled her heart to only for them to leave as soon as they got what they wanted. "-to people leaving the minute I start giving them something to worry about."

It's not hard to guess what she was going to say, and Az feels a flicker of anger towards them all - Cameron and Brad and the rest. Merlin, it's been a year since that night in the courtyard where he told her to block Brad the first time, hasn't it? His arm tightens around her waist when she finishes speaking, frown deepening as he considers it. He's had quite possibly the opposite problem in his life thusfar - people not giving him space - but Billie's always been the opposite. Maybe that's why he likes her so much. Opposites attract in the best way possible. "Stop apologising. I know," he says, frown deepening. "But you don't have to worry about that, with me. I promise."

There's a flicker of panic at the notion that she may have completely given him the wrong idea, that she would ever anticipate or expect that sort of behaviour from him when the total opposite is the reality. "No, no, of course not. Merlin, no- I trust you more than I trust myself. I love you." It comes out far more freely and unhesitant than the last time she declared it; to be honest, why wouldn't it? It's true. She used to say those three words very often to anybody who wanted to hear it but with Az it just- it feels so different. It feels real. "It's just a hard habit to break, I guess. But I'm working on it! I promise too." The grin comes naturally as well, bright and beaming as the stars.

That's not what he meant at all; of course she wasn't anticipating that kind of behaviour logically, but Az knows enough about emotional baggage to not be surprised she hasn't broken the habit. It would be very hypocritical of him to take offense, wouldn't it? "I love you, too," he answers, taking a moment before continuing. "For what it's worth, I know you do, and I trust you, too. I get it."

Has she ever had somebody say that to her before and actually believed them? In a more shallower sense of the verb, yes; it's been said to her a multitude of times by various different boys, none of whom actually meant it and all of whom she blindly fell for. But it's never felt like this before - that warm, genuine sense of satisfaction that yes, things might actually go well this time. Whether it's the Seer part of herself finally yielding its suspicion and accepting that not every romance she'll ever have is completely doomed, or just herself being- well, really fucking in love, is another question. And one Billie doesn't particularly care for in this moment in time because she's too busy biting her lip to stop herself from saying something embarrassing (or just straight-up crying like she usually does), before leaning in and upwards slightly to kiss him, a hand curling around the back of his neck to pull him closer. "I love you so much," she repeats, for good measure. You can never hear it enough times, and now she knows she can say it and it doesn't feel premature, she's never going to stop.

There's no hesitation when Az leans into the kiss, the hand that's not around her waist finding its way to her jaw. When she pulls away and repeats herself his expression splits into a smile, his first of the night, and he presses another peck to her lips before he pulls away. It always shocks him, just how much better she makes everything feel just by virtue of existing; how even now, with his family falling apart (hers too, apparently) she still manages to make it feel like things will be okay. "You're perfect," he tells her seriously, and then kisses her again because he knows he'll never be good enough with words to properly convey everything he feels. "You need to start putting yourself first more."

She knows when does, as drastically awful as she has consistently been at that, and decides in that moment that she’s going to walk down to Lil Bundles tomorrow and have it out with the owner. Hell, she’s legally old enough to adopt them herself now, right? All she needs is- well, a stable address that doesn’t lead back to a commandeered youth hostel. That might be a slight chink in the armour. But the worry melts away when Az kisses her again, her hand trailing up from his neck into his hair, and she smiles - smaller but genuine - as they pull apart. “I will. I promise. But so do you.” Although it’s virtually impossible for Billie to allow herself the spotlight for more than five minutes, she’s genuine in her worry. Merlin, Elijah was stood in their hallway mere hours ago, looking ready to kill Jai himself. “You don’t have to talk about it if you don’t want to, and Merlin, I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t- but it’s okay to be upset about your dad. Even after everything he did. You’re allowed to grieve.

"I'm not upset about it," he objects, tone defensive. No, upset is much too simplistic a word. He's not sure what he feels, exactly; he's not happy like he thought he'd be, he's not relieved, either. He's just- tired. Of thinking about it. "Why would I be upset about it? There are bigger worries right now." Like Jocelyn's theory about Elijah, but he's not going to mention that to Billie now. "Like your brothers. Surely there are rules to prevent them sending them away?" Though he wouldn't be surprised if there weren't. Bureaucracy is like that.

Though she's likely ignorant of the majority of torment Az experienced from his father - and she knows she's only scratched the surface of that - it still baffles Billie how somebody could not feel upset about the death of a parent. Family is family, right? Even if you don't like them, you still love them. Though it's not like she can say much in terms of strain; her own father was- is the nicest man on Earth, and imagining anything else is... well, it's unfathomable. But she also knows that arguing that would be both useless and ridiculously insensitive, so while she may not fully understand, she's going to at least try. "I don't know. Their parents have been missing for nearly a year." Her voice cracks a tad on that final word but she swallows it down - she is not crying again, not this easily. "I can apply for legal guardianship, I think, but the agency will want proof that they have a safe place to live and- I love this place, but it's not exactly stable, is it? They want a nice house and a white picket fence. I can't give them that."

It's not that he's not upset, necessarily, but Az is self-aware enough to know the upset comes from the fact that he never had a real father in the first place, rather than any regret that Abraham Cagan himself is dead. And the switch in topic is a mild relief - switch to another stressor, just one that requires less self-examination. "We can work round that," he says, reaching for her hand and linking their fingers. "I mean, I'm sure Tori will help, if you ask her." He himself might not be a fan of asking for help, but he's not stupid; sometimes you need an adult with a stable living situation to help you out.

Whilst Billie, on the other hand, is not at all adverse to asking for help, there are levels to this sort of thing. Asking Bunny for a place to stay after her parents vanished felt burdening enough, but asking that of Tori is overstepping a line; this isn't exactly requesting a short-term loan to pay the rent or an errant signature to copy onto adoption forms. "Help us out how? Buy us a house? In the middle of London, to fit- well, however many people?" That's another obstacle in the road to settling down: it's not even been a year since she moved into Backpackers but it feels like home. Sat here, on this rooftop with the black sky and the smog and the cold air - it couldn't be further from rural Ireland if it tried but it's the only place she wants to be. Here, with Az and his family and the other kids, fussing and tidying up after them and taking them shopping for school supplies before term starts. It's what feels right. "I can't ask that of her, Az. It's too much."

"That's not what I mean and you know it," he tells her, rolling his eyes. "But I'm sure if you asked her to use her address she'd let you. And we're about to graduate, anyway; you wouldn't be lying for long." Or could they put the mill, maybe? They've certainly fixed it up a lot. He just doesn't know the law as to whether it's legally theirs or not - maybe he should ask Francisco. Speaking of... "Or Francisco, I guess. He's not even in the country, we could write his address and live here otherwise, until we get somewhere." It's not like he'd say no, either; the man's desperate to make it up to Az. Might as well use that for something important.

The eyeroll doesn't help her confidence much but she shakes it off, pulling her knees up to her chest and feeling smaller than ever; it isn't like Billie to ignore her problems - at least not ones of this scale - but what she can say? Other people come first, they always have. "The agency will send someone to look around whatever address we give them, to make sure it's suitable for them. Otherwise they could be letting kids go anywhere. Thank you, though," she adds, leaning in to kiss Az on the cheek; though she's yet to meet his real dad, and doubts that she will anytime soon considering he seems as elusive as a ghost, if he's anything like Az then he's sure to be an amazing person. The type of father that Az deserves. "I appreciate it."

"Will they check after the initial ones? Without warning, I mean." There's got to be a way around it, it's just a matter of finding it, he thinks. And it doesn't seem like Francisco is going to be using his house for a while. "It'll work out," he adds, draping his arm around her. "When do you think you'll go see them?"

It’s not like Billie doesn’t cry at quite literally everything - she was sobbing the other night at some soppy romantic movie she watched when she couldn’t sleep, which scared the life out of Sam when he came downstairs to get a glass of water, bless him - but talking about this is only inevitably going to bring the tears. Still, she tries to suppress it, lips trembling for a minute as Az pulls her into his side. Merlin, if she cries any more, she’ll turn into drops. “I don’t know. I don’t know how it works. I think they’ll be followed up, by social workers or something, right? That’s how Muggles do it. But-“ Ugh, one word more and she’ll be a wreck, so she cuts herself off by burying her face into Az’s shoulder, eyes squeezed shut. She’s always hated this about herself: how she crumbles at the merest circumstance whereas her friends can take it on the chin and continue, phased but not a wreck like this. Can you imagine what a mess she’d be if she didn’t have Az and Bunny and all her (remaining) family left? And now she’s about to lose more of them. What a mess.

Az doesn't say anything when she buries her face in his shoulder, simply turning further towards her and resting his head atop hers. He can't blame her for feeling like this; he doesn't know how he'd handle someone trying to take his siblings from him (Sam, mostly, but Sarai and Jai too). And the fact that she's been dealing with this herself, in some kind of misguided attempt not to stress him out- Merlin, he hates when she does this. All he wants is for her to put herself first, for once in her life. But now isn't the time to approach that particular issue, so he settles for pressing a kiss to her hair and tracing patterns on the back of her hand with his thumb until she's let it out.

It’s so cold out here, and by the time she’s done crying into Az’s shoulder she realises that her shivers are less from her sobs and more from the night air biting through the hoodie. And as much as she would happily stay here forever with the warmth of Az beside her and the slow, soothing motion on her hand, it’s not fair to keep him out here freezing to death. It’ll be far warmer in bed. “Come on, before our lips turn blue,” Billie says, gently lifting her head up and dabbing at her eyes with the cuff of the sleeve. The stars are a comforting partner, sure, but her happy place well and truly is curled up under a duvet with Az beside her and Pluto and Pumpkin at the foot of the bed. It’s the only place she truly feels safe.
