The cool thing about one guy quitting on "moral grounds" right after the flyers had gone out about Take Your Daughter to Work Day was this: Topher now had said scientist's office for the rest of the summer. It was a little too fancy-schmancy for him, and it could use a fridge and a trampoline and maybe some posters of superheroes and cats hanging off of , but it was a place to hang out that wasn't the conference room when the team was working on "intern-unfriendly" (i.e., high-clearance-level) projects in the labs.
 
Also, his chair was insanely comfortable.
 
When he got a call from Billy in the middle of the day, Topher was pretty excited about the opportunity to show off his new digs, so his response to Billy's weirdly-worded request to stop by was a resounding "Duh." Making out in an office was supposed to be hot, right? He just... might want to turn off the surveillance feed out of his office first.

Vital testing apparatus disabled.

Perfect.

When Topher hadn't said anything about the weekend, Billy had thought that maybe the whole thing he'd talked about with Astrid hadn't happened. But then he realized that Topher wouldn't know anything had happened and wouldn't know if anything was different and if nothing was different then what if nothing had been different and basically, by the time Billy got to Topher's office and knocked on the door his hair was practically standing up from nervously fidgeting with it.

Billy smiled softly and kissed Topher back, not wanting to give off the wrong impression. "You earned it by sticking around long enough to be here when it was open? That kind of counts?" he said.

"No no, it's okay. You can have all the spinny action," Billy said, looking Topher over for any sign of a headache or bruising or something worse. "So uh, how's it going?"

"I'm doing okay," Billy lied smoothly. "That was a really strange weekend we just had, huh?"

"Um, some weird girls making people feel different," Billy said, trying to stay outwardly calm. "Did you feel any different?"

"Yeah, kind of like the Ramona shippers," Billy said. "Did you feel any less in control than usual? Or like you, I don't know, liked me more?"

"I... I guess I did?" Billy said uncertainly. "One of the girls said something to me and... I felt different about our relationship."

"Well, it depends." Yeah Billy, that was reassuring. "Do you think you like me because you really like me, or do you feel like something makes you like me?"

selfhelphero: ([neu] oh good so you're crazy)
From: [personal profile] selfhelphero
That got a smile out of Billy as he shook his head. "No, it's a question of my abilities. Over the weekend, you liked me because I wanted you to. Because... well, I guess I made it happen, with my powers," he said. "And if you didn't feel any different than normal..."

Topher was a smart guy, surely he could see where that train of thought went.

"I know. And I don't want to be doing anything weird," Billy said. "Over the weekend I wanted to but... what if I don't know I'm doing it? There are so many things I don't know about my powers. I mean, right now I make stuff happen by wishing really hard. What if that's how we happened?"

...okay, that was something Billy hadn't considered. "Because I wanted a boyfriend?" he said, but he didn't sound quite so convinced anymore. "You're one of the first guys who's ever liked me back. And you're not a bad boyfriend or anything, for the record."

selfhelphero: ([pos] tiny smile at you)

"So, you're not worried about this?" Billy asked, looking a lot more relieved.

"I don't want to, I really really don't," Billy said. "I've been so worried that I was hurting you somehow, and I don't want to do that ever."

That hug was awfully nice, and Billy hugged Topher back easily. "Thank you. I needed that reminder, I think. I'm glad I came to see you."
