    "Deal," Tramp agreed, accepting the hand.  "I'll do it."

    Ashton nodded and shook Tramp's hand, arranging a time and place to meet before the meeting before Ashton took a winding way back home.

    (That was a rather confusing sentence. XD)

    Tramp whistled to Bobo as he headed down the alley, humming happily.  This was going to be easy!  Easy money, and a new connection.  And a cute new fella to taunt.
    In truth, Tramp had never favored guys.  Not really.  The streets, however, had a way of making you do things that you never thought you'd ever do to stay alive.  There wasn't a huge market in females wanting a nightly companion, but men... men were always hungry.  Tramp figured at least half of his male clientele didn't actually favor guys, either, but horny guys found a way.  He'd taught himself to admire guys, and the straight ones he had fun tormenting with his flamboyance.  Possibly because he was jealous of them.
    In any case, easy money to buy him the drugs he needed!  Drat that Echo for destroying his former connection.
    Echo....
    Tramp shook off the momentary pang of loneliness and smiled at Bobo.  "What do you say to a real meal tonight, boy?"
    Bobo panted, his fluffy tail wagging.

    There hadn't been much word or sight of Echo since TRamp yelled at her, to the point a couple of her connections who knew she and Tramp had been close asked him about the little thief. Other than that, she seemed to have all but vanished from the city, only heading out and flipping goods when she was low on money.

    Ashton finally came home, slipping inside quietly in case anyone was sleeping.

    Lex looked up from the book he was attempting to read.  He wasn't illiterate, but he had a lower reading level than most his age.  There hadn't been much call for reading when on the streets.  "How'd it go?"

    Ashton nodded a greeting. "Well. I found a guy. Seemed more than happy to take it up, even knowing that it could be a bit dangerous for him." Ashton snorted. "Seemed a bit eager when I told him he was going to be impersonating a British guy. Told him I'd meet up with him before the meeting to go over some last details, and I have to make a mini smoke bomb."

    "What is it with Americans and the British accent?" Lex mused.  "Anyway, nice job.  Need any help with the bomb?"

    Ashton shrugged. "No idea, and I can do it well enough. It's only a small one this time. Do you want to come with me to meet the guy tomorrow?" he asked Lex.

    Lex considered.  "No.  The less interaction I have from now on the better.  Ashton?  Thanks for doing this.  I'll have to make a call tomorrow."

    "Hey, it's no problem." Ashton smiled. "Besides, haven't I always taken things important to you seriously? And this feels like one of those things."

    "It is," Lex said simply.  "I'm going to get some sleep.  Don't stay up too late."  He stood and made his way to his bed.

    "Aye aye." Ashton said, saluting Lex before he went to his own room to make the smoke bomb.

    Layla was getting ready to curl up on the upstairs couch to go to bed.

    "Night, Lays," Lex said idly as he passed.  "Don't fall off the couch."

    "Not planning to." She said with a smile before laying down and snuggling under the blanket.

    Lex laid down on his bed and lay staring up at the ceiling.  This was the first time in... what, a week? that he'd slept without someone else in the room.  That was a strange feeling.

    Ashton finished the smoke bomb and set it aside before doing some light reading. He would go to bed before too much longer.

    Lex eventually drifted off into a restless sleep, tossing and turning as he slept.

    Ashton woke with a start, heart racing and gasping for breath. He was shaking as he tried to calm down. It had only been a bad dream.... another nightmare. This one was worse than normal though. He ran trembling fingers through his hair and slowly got out of bed. He felt like a child for always requesting this of him, but Ashton knew Lex understood maybe more than anyone how it made Ashton feel. He softly walked into his friend's room. "Lex?" He asked softly, still shaking slightly and slightly out of breath.

    "Mph?" Lex asked, jumping out of his light sleep.  He rubbed his eyes and peered blearily at Ashton.  "Sup, Ash?"

    Ashton looked down guiltily. "Lex... can... can I sleep with you tonight?" He asked quietly. He didn't like disturbing Lex like this every time he had a nightmare, but Lex always seemed to be able to help, and Ashton trusted Lex more than anyone.

    Lex yawned and scooted over, pulling the blankets down.  "Come on in," he mumbled sleepily, not at all opposed to the idea.

    Ashton nodded a thanks and crawled into bed beside Lex. It would still take a little bit before he calmed down again and fell asleep, but just knowing he wasn't alone did help already.

    Lex wrapped his arms around Ashton, snuggling in sleepily.  Ashton's body was cool, but together they were getting nice and toasty!  Sharing a bed always made sense on the streets as it kept each other warm, but it had been a while since they'd done this.

    Ashton sighed and snuggled back. This helped a lot more even. He liked snuggling with Lex, weirdly enough, and easily calmed down enough to fall back asleep, cuddled with his best friend.

    Lex eased into a deep sleep, comforted by Ashton's presence.  Ashton was safe.  All was well, now.
