Holly's giggling to herself as she repeatedly tries to open the door to her apartment with no success. The world is spinning and it's all because her friends made it their personal mission to get her drunk tonight. Evident from the way she's struggling to stay standing, they succeeded. Giving up, she scowls and sits on the floor next to her doorframe, leaning her head against the wall. She looks up at Donnie expectantly. "I can't get innnn." she whines, before holding out her keys to him in her hand. "I'm tired. I don't want to stand anymore. This is so stupid."

Merlin, it’s like trying to deal with a toddler - a very drunk, very giggly toddler who’s going to be extremely hungover for her birthday tomorrow. He’s just as drunk, though; maybe not falling-over level but definitely enough to make him just as giggly, letting out a sharp laugh when Holly sits down and holds the keys out. “Do I have to carry you bridal-style like I did in sixth year?” he grins, taking the keys and barely managing to slot them into the lock. That had been a fun night: the ball, bumping into her on the stairwell and scooping her up like that, then getting so wasted he could barely remember anything the next day. He remembered that, though, clear as a bell. As if he’d ever forget.

"You don't have to. I can take care of myself." she says indignantly, nearly falling over as she tries to get up. She plants a hand on the wall for better balance, moving slowly before she finally enters her apartment. When she's sure Donnie's inside as well, she uses her foot to kick the door closed and looks up at him before poking him square in the chest, an accusatory look in her eyes. "Why did you let them do this to me?" she says, dramatically, referring to her intoxicated state. "I don't think I've been this drunk in years."

He goes to grab her arm and catch her when she gets up, but he’s so drunk himself that he’s also a little off-kilter. Still, once he hears the door shut behind them and he’s confident nobody’s looking - hey, call him paranoid, but all it takes is one photo in the papers - he instantly relaxes, grinning when she prods a finger into his chest. “Ermmmmm, because you’re the birthday girl?” he points out, wrapping his arms around her waist and pulling her closer with a smirk. Everything’s a bit hazy but it’s not like he’ll be looking anywhere else but at her tonight. “And there’s no way I’d let you enjoy your birthday - or pre-birthday - without celebrating?”

When he pulls her in closer, she wraps her arms around his neck and tiptoes to kiss him, a smile spreading across her face as she does. It's always so nice being here in her apartment where no one can see them and she doesn't have to worry as much. Afterwards, Holly lets go and sits down on the couch. "You guys didn't have to do anything for me." she tells him, "I would've had fun just staying at home and doing nothing."

The contrast between how they behave here and in public is so drastic; they have to be so careful whenever they’re out in a bar or with the others but here? It almost feels like they could be normal. But that’s too much to think about tonight, so Donnie smiles as he kisses her back then joins her on the couch, an arm clumsily stretching around her shoulders. “You can’t not go out on your birthday, Hol,” he argues, pulling a face. His own birthdays used to be so lavish and ridiculous, his dad hosting some elaborate family dinner or even a whole party for his eighteenth, but a drink out with their friends is so nice and normal. “Staying at home and doing nothing is not fun. I can’t believe you find that fun.” He’s teasing, of course, but his voice softens a little at his next question: “You had a good time, then?”

As Donnie starts talking, Holly starts to snuggle up to him, kicking her shoes off onto the floor. She tangles herself with him until she's almost in his lap, fiddling with the collar of his shirt absent-mindedly before she realizes he's asked her a question. "Of course I did," she tells him, looking up. "Everyone I love was there and everyone had fun. There isn't really more to ask for than that, right? And I don't normally celebrate my birthday, so that bar was pretty low to begin with." She giggles a bit just thinking about it, even though it sounds kinda sad.

It feels like the most natural thing in the world, her cuddling up to him, and Donnie drops a kiss onto the top of her head as she talks; they could honestly sit like this for hours, though he knows they probably won’t. “Right, well, next year we’re doing it properly,” he vows, words a little slurred as he grins. “As in party, balloons, drinks, pub crawl, everything. We could even make a trip of it - could you imagine all of us, going on holiday together or something? It’d be great. And you couldn’t use the ‘I’ve got work’ excuse to slope off like you always do,” he teases, with no heat. Though that excuse does always sting a little.

"Hey! I don't always use that excuse." she says, even though she knows that she does, but it's worth contesting anyway. "A year is so far from now though," she says, though the mention of this plan of his has caused a flurry of butterflies to go off in her stomach. "Things might change by then. This – " She uses her hand to gesture to how the two of them are positioned. She wants to say we instead, but that would be acknowledging that there is a them. " – might change by then." Not wanting to completely dampen the mood, though, she looks up to kiss him once on the corner of his mouth. "But we should definitely do it. I won't flake. It'll be fun – you're right, and we'll surely still be friends, no matter what happens, right?"

He probably shouldn’t have even mentioned the prospect of next year. So much could change by then; after all, Lida is literal royalty, and wherever she goes, he does too. If she had to go back to Russia or wherever at the drop of a hat, it’s not like he’d have much say in it. But that would kill the mood, and right now he is extremely happy, so he smiles down at Holly and brings a hand up to gently brush her cheek before shuffling a little on the couch so she can get impossibly closer. “A lot can happen in a year,” he drunkenly agrees, nodding. “You could be on the moon by then.”

She shakes her head, smiling like an idiot as she looks up at him. "No way." she tells him definitively, sounding totally convinced. The next part is a whisper as she leans angles her head upward so that she's can kiss his neck, right beneath his ear. "I wouldn't leave you like that again." Her words are a bit slurred but it's obvious how much truth there is behind them. "You asked me to stay this time, remember?"

Merlin, he almost melts at that; it’s so worlds away from how she usually is, out of bed as soon as daylight breaks and barely giving him a second glance, that if he didn’t know her so well he’d swear this was a different person kissing him right now. But it’s Holly, and even after so many years he’d know her by touch alone. “Who said I wouldn’t be on the moon with you?” he smirks, angling down a little so he can kiss her properly. “But yes, I asked you to stay. Regardless of what happens.”

"Then I'm staying." she confirms with him, kissing him once more after he does, as gently as she can. This is nothing like how they usually are, which kind of scares her a bit, but Holly's too drunk and too happy to properly address any feelings of dread. "No matter what. You and me – we're a team, okay? I'm not going anywhere without you. Promise. Even if it is the moon." She laughs, trailing kisses on his jaw in between her sentences. "That would be fun, yeah? You and I running off to the moon together."

“Wow, you are drunk,” he laughs, mostly to distract himself from the shivers as her lips trail along his jaw; she probably won’t even remember this tomorrow morning, and he’ll definitely have one hell of a headache, so they should make the most of this while they can. It’s never usually like this. Not that he’d ever change it for the world. “We should go out more often if you end up like this.”

She's about to catch his earlobe in between her teeth when he mentions that last bit. "Hm?" She sounds confused even though she knows what he's talking about. She's drunk, though, which makes the whole thought process a little hazier. "Do you like me better when I'm like this?" she asks, moving her head so that she's facing him, looking at him in the eyes. "I can try being like this more often. I don't want to be doing this if you don't like me and it's just making you upset."

She’s so pretty. He’s literally lost just looking at her for a moment before her words catch up with him, and his brow furrows slightly. “I love you just the way you are.” He doesn’t even think about what he’s just said, head far too fuzzy for that and distracted by the kisses he drops onto her shoulder, now she’s moved a little closer. “I wouldn’t change a thing about you.”

"But you don't mean it like that, right?" she says. She can't help herself from thinking out loud, trying to rationalize the words that he just said. She's distracted by how good his mouth feels on her shoulder that she uses a hand to angle his chin upwards so that they're looking at each other again. "This – this isn't like that." she says, mostly to reassure herself more than anyone else. She's in denial of course, somehow even all the alcohol she's consumed tonight isn't enough to get her to confront the truth she's been avoiding. "We're just – yeah. This isn't a thing – at least not like that." Right?

The room moves about two seconds behind as she lifts his chin up, but he finds her eyes quickly enough. And her words are slurred and take a few moments to properly connect in his head; yikes, he put his foot in it. The way he always does when he’s drunk. If he was sober he’d probably panic and rush to damage control, or maybe argue and say that he did mean it, but right now all he wants to do is reach and tuck that stray lock of hair behind her ear. “Sure,” he sighs, sounding a little distant. “This is just this. It’s whatever we want it to be.”

She doesn't catch the somber tone in his words. Instead, a smile spreads across her face, looking relieved. When he reassures her, she leans in and kisses him again. "For what it's worth, I love you too," she tells him, moving her lips down from his mouth, to his jaw, to his neck. "Not in that way, of course." She laughs at the thought, burying her head in the crook of his shoulder before continuing to plant soft kisses on every accessible part of his skin. "You know what I mean." Not even she knows what means, so ridiculously in denial about this whole situation, but she continues regardless. "You're one of my closest friends and if anything happened to you, I'd never recover."

Oh, it’s a really good job that he’s not sober right now. If he’d heard those words with a clear head, it probably would have killed him. He accepted a long time ago that he’s fallen a lot faster and a lot harder than Holly has, and maybe that’s an unavoidable truth he’ll just have to live with for as long as this thing continues, but he’s more than willing to downplay his feelings if it means he gets to keep Holly. After all, as awful as it is to think about, this has an expiration date. All affairs do. But whatever, he’s not ruining the moment, and he grins when he wraps his arms around her and pulls her onto his lap, trailing kisses down her neck. “Friends do this a lot, do they?"

Holly can't help the sound that escapes her throat when Donnie starts kissing her neck, and she buries her hands in his hair and grinds down on reflex. She laughs, though, as she takes off her shirt when she hears what he says and rolls her eyes playfully. "Mhmm," she confirms, smirking as the two of them continue. "Best friends." she teases him, before she begins unbuttoning his shirt. Normally, there are a lot more thoughts running through her head about how this is still a bad idea and that Donnie will get tired of her soon or someone will find out and it'll be over for the two of them, but tonight is just so perfect that she really can't bring herself to care anymore.

It's safe to say he slept well, between his alcohol consumption and what they got up to last night. When Donnie wakes up it takes him a second or two to realise where he is - though he's come to recognise the white ceiling that stares back at him, and the colour of the bedsheets and the blonde hair of Holly on the pillow beside him. His head's extremely fuzzy and his throat's crying out for a litre of black coffee to try and wake him back up, but he's far too comfy here to move. And besides, he's not said good morning yet. It's not typical for him to awake first so he takes full advantage of it, rolling over and wrapping an arm around Holly's waist as he drops a kiss onto her cheek.

Holly stays asleep for another half hour or so, but she's always been a light sleeper so she stirs a little when sunlight starts to creep in through the small gaps in the curtains. Her head hurts like hell and she barely remembers last night; it's not like anything new must've happened anyway because here she is waking up next to Donnie again, like always. She's about to get up and force herself awake enough to make coffee but is firmly held in place by the arm around her waist, so she rolls over onto her other side to face him. "Morning," she says as quietly as she can, for the sake of both their heads. "How long have you been up?"

He's just beginning to drift off again when he feels Holly move beside him, and he offers her a tired smile as the sunlight streams in through the curtains and almost directly into his eyes. "Not very long. It's nice to wake up and you're still here," he says, voice quiet and jokey; it used to bother him that she'd disappear every morning without so much as a goodbye, and maybe it still kind of does, but he's also gotten used to it. It's not like Holly's ever been the type to confront her feelings. "Though if this hangover is anything to go by, I'm not moving from this bed for several hours."

She decides to ignore that comment about her always leaving before he wakes up; it's not like it bothers him anyway. If it did, surely, he would've mentioned it by now. Besides, what does he care if she's still in bed when he wakes up? "If you let me go, I can make us both coffee." she offers, referring to the arm snaked around her waist. She isn't used to waking up like this. Normally she's already getting dressed before they have the chance to properly enjoy the morning after, not that they should, because the whole concept is so annoyingly domestic. "Or I can shut the curtains?"

If he actually remembered most of last night, he'd be able to see the blatant difference between how she was then and how she is now immediately; it's weird, seeing her shift back into the Holly he knows so well - clinical and cold, detached from feelings (or at least admitting them) - but it's not a big deal. "No, it's fine, I'm not a teenager anymore." He spent so much of seventh year hungover that it was practically his default setting; he's a bit better at handling rough mornings now. "Coffee sounds great."

She uses her hand to remove his arm from its position around her waist. Her reluctance to leave their position doesn't show as sits up. She clutches the sheets to her chest before grabbing the nearest available article of clothing, which happens to be Donnie's shirt from last night on the floor. She almost rolls her eyes at how domestic this is going to look before she puts it on; he's so much taller than her it almost fits like a dress. "I'll be right back." she says, smiling a bit before coming back a bit later, a mug of coffee in each hand. "Here." She passes one to him as she sits cross-legged on the bed, still in his shirt because she can't be bothered to change out of it or any other unnecessary movements with her headache. "Did I do anything too embarrassing last night?"

It'll take him a while for the memories of last night to come back to him, at least it more detail than they are now. To be honest, he's too distracted by her wearing his shirt to think clearly at the minute, smirking as he sits up to take the coffee mug from her. "I don't think I'd remember if you did." What even happened last night? They all went to a bar to celebrate, got obscenely wasted, ended up back here like they always do- and he'd said something about next year, and going on holiday together or something. Wow. Drunk him is an optimistic. There's no way he'd be able to peel himself away from work or Lida or responsibilities to go anywhere. "I've never seen you that drunk before, though. It was funny."

Holly turns a bit red as she listens to him; she doesn't normally get that drunk for a reason, after all. "It's not funny to me." she tells him, pouting, though it's obvious she's just embarrassed. She trusts Donnie, so it's not like she particularly minds. She takes a sip of her coffee. "You think anyone noticed we left together?"

The way she goes bright red makes him chuckle, blowing the steam away from his coffee. "I told Riv I was just making sure you got home okay, seeing as you could barely walk," he says, still a teasing lilt to his voice - he's never going to let her forget that. And to be honest, he could probably have kissed Holly right in the middle of the bar in front of everybody and Riv would think it was just friendly. Whether Whitney noticed, though, is another issue he'll have to confront; if she turns up at his desk again with takeaway cartons, it's a sign. "But I think everybody was too out of it to notice, don't worry."

Holly nods, content with the explanation. She knows the reminder that they have to be careful is a bit of a buzzkill, but the aftermath of everyone finding out is too much for her to even begin to consider having to actually deal with. "Thank you." she ends up mumbling out, as if it's difficult for her to say it. "For putting up with me last night."

"I was hardly putting up with you," he points out; it's not like he'd been stone cold sober and playing babysitter all night. "We were all hammered. I'm pretty sure Dick started singing at one point." The memories are a bit cloudy but there was definitely a karaoke machine involved. "I'm just glad you had a good time. You always seem so wound up with work, it was nice to see you relax a bit."

His concern is sweet so she leans in and kisses his cheek once while he's drinking his coffee. "You don't need to get worried about that." she says, grinning a little, because his worry is somewhat appreciated even though he's beginning to sound like her boyfriend or something, which is territory they really shouldn't be treading. "I can take care of myself just fine." Of course, if taking care of herself means barely sleeping and taking as many cups of coffee as she can in a day.

"You barely take care of yourself and you know it." It doesn't come out harsh or argumentative, more just concerned; he's been thinking about it more and more recently, especially if the merger between WizCo and the Ministry actually goes ahead, or whatever plans end up being greenlit. It'll just mean more hours and more paperwork and less sleep, which is exactly what both of them need at the minute. "And if work gets busy again, you'll be even more wound up. But that's fine, because it just means I can take you out drinking more often," he finishes with a smug smile, leaning back against the pillows.

Holly scoffs. "If you think I'm going to get that drunk around you ever again, you're sorely mistaken." she tells him, even though she knows it's more likely than she's saying. "I don't think I ever want to get that drunk again in general. Most of the time the night before is just extremely hazy, but now I'm really drawing a complete blank." At least Donnie was there with her – that means nothing too terrible could've happened.

It's slowly coming back to him in bits and pieces: the bar they went to, Dick getting up on stage and singing show tunes, River knocking a drink over at some point... didn't Holly sit on the floor outside of the apartment because she was too drunk to unlock it? Something like that. And then they were on the couch... bits and pieces. "You don't remember anything?" he frowns - Merlin, he didn't realise she was that drunk.

She thinks a bit, then remembers a little from last night. "I remember what happened at the bar! There was karaoke, right? And Whitney kept trying to take the mic away from Riv so our ears wouldn't all bleed out – thank Merlin." She smiles fondly at the memory. "I don't really remember leaving the bar, just that I left with you... Everything afterwards is a bit of a blank." Holly shrugs, adjusting her position on the bed and setting her half-empty mug on the bedside table so she can lean on him. "Not like anything important must've happened anyway, if it was just us."

He sets aside his own mug too, mostly so his hands are free so he can wrap an arm around her shoulders like it's the most natural thing in the world. It's still pretty early if the sunlight is anything to go by but he honestly could stay here for the rest of the day; it's not like he has anywhere to be, or anywhere else he'd want to be. "Nothing important? You really do have a way with words, Holl," he smirks, a hand finding her hair.

"Hey, I – " She rolls her eyes as she tries to defend herself. "I didn't mean it like that. You know what I mean." A strange sense of deja vu hits for a second, but she doesn't really think anything about it. Probably something she said last night. Couldn't have been that important if she doesn't remember. She leans on his shoulder when he pulls her in closer, smiling as he begins to play with her hair.

The deja-vu hits him as well, stronger as he actually remembers quite a lot of what happened now he's woken up properly and has some caffeine in his system - they were on the couch, joking about running away to the moon or something and- oh man. Please don't say he did something stupid like telling he loves her. He knows he's an idiot when he's drunk but he's not that bad, surely? "I know what you meant," he nods, kissing the top of her head when she curls in, but there's a brewing sense of dread in his stomach. He definitely said it, didn't he? Shit. There are two options here: one, pretend like nothing ever happened since it's not like Holly remembers it anyway. Or two: say it again, sober. They're both as bad as each other.

When he kisses her forehead she closes her eyes contently for a couple of seconds, adjusting her position on the bed so that their legs are all tangled and she's as close to him as she could possibly get. "I can't believe it's my birthday." she says, "I feel like I could just spend the whole day in bed and never leave."

He feels ill, but decides to downplay it after all; it's Holly's birthday, for fuck's sake, he's not going to ruin it by making some terrible declaration of love when they both know it can't go anywhere. That would be more cruel than anything. "There's nothing stopping you from doing that," he reasons. A few text messages to Lida and he could easily disappear for the day. "Unless you've made plans? Which I doubt, since you told me last night you were planning on staying in and doing nothing for your birthday. You miserable thing."

"We could go somewhere." she says, mostly thinking out loud, before catching her slip. "I mean — I could go somewhere I guess. You can go home if you need to." The reminder that Donnie has to go home after this to his wife leaves a bitter taste in her mouth. "I'll figure something out."

"So you won't bite my head off if I put something in the group chat?" he teases, grabbing his phone because he needs to come up with some excuse for Lida about why he didn't come home last night. Luckily, getting drunk at a best friend's birthday do and staying overnight in a hotel isn't the most outlandish he's had to conjure up before. "Though I'd be amazed if anybody has it in them to go out again tonight. Maybe Whitney, since she never seems to get hangovers." Man, he's had some wild nights out with Whitney, too. The more he thinks about it, she almost definitely noticed them leaving together... oh well. He'll cross that bridge when he comes to it.

She tries reaching for his phone before he can message the group chat, as if anyone's still alive to respond, but fails. She lets her arm fall in place around him though, cuddling up to him. "No one's going to take you up on your offer." she says, mumbling her words into his chest.

He lifts the phone before she can get it, smirking when her arm falls around him and she moves in closer. He hasn't had any missed calls or texts or anything from Lida, so she clearly didn't care where he was all night, and there's nothing embarrassing or incriminating in the group chat. Though the texts he got from Riv the other day about being close to Holly did give him a minor heart attack. "Looks like it's just you and me, then," he sighs - like he'd rather have anything else - and tosses his phone back onto the bedside table.

She shoves him a little bit. "You make that sound like it's a bad thing." Which, it probably is, but she's going to ignore that voice in her head for now. It's her birthday; she deserves to be happy today, right? And being with Donnie, as annoying as it is to her, makes her happy. "I'll have you know I love it when it's just you and me."

The shove makes him laugh, responding by just tightening his arms around her so she can't move as much and kissing the side of her head. "You know it's my favourite thing in the world," he says, teasing but also reassuring in his tone - she's always been an overthinker, ever since they were kids. "Do you actually want to go out anywhere - planetarium, or just into Lincliff? Or we can just stay in bed all day. It's not a problem." Code: Lida won't ask questions. "I'm happy to do either."

She can barely move when he's holding her like this, not that she minds. She feels an overwhelming sense of security and safety in his arms that she can't quite put a name to, so she smiles instead and relishes the feeling. "I'm happy as long as it's with you. Merlin, that sounds so cheesy. Forget I said anything." she says, making a face to show she's not serious. "I think I'd like to stay here a little longer." she answers him, "It's early and the bed is way too comfy." He's comfy too, she thinks.

"Look at you being soft," he laughs, trying to ignore the sting now he remembers what she was like last night - giggling, talking about running away to the moon and how she'd never leave and acting like she was his girlfriend or something, to use her favourite joke. Even now she's not being the way she usually is: up and out as soon as the alarm goes off, barely giving him a second glance because Merlin forbid she stays and faces reality for once. But that's not really fair. She's the one playing second fiddle, after all. Donnie sighs, sinking down into the sheets a little as he pulls Holly closer, trying not to think about it too much. It's her special day, after all. "Okay, then. Let's stay."
