He quickly called the airport, not caring how much or how late the flight was. He needed to see,Slash....
He didn't understand why he was so miserable without Axl, but as always, he never understood them two at all. The man reason Slash was miserable because, Axl had to stay longer at his parents because he had met with some old friends down there and he wanted to catch up. Now he'd been there for a whole two weeks instead of a weekend.
“I don't know,baby. Maybe a little longer.” Came Axl's upset tone from through the phone. He really missed Slash. He didn't know how much that he would miss Slash as much as he was. He wasn't sleeping well, he was snapping at everyone because he didn't have Slash with him all the time to calm him down.
Slash made a complaining noise and sunk deeper into the couch. Duff felt sorry for Slash. Him and Axl had never been apart for this long and he was not looking forward to more time away from his boyfriend. The guitarist pouted and he looked over at Duff for some support, but he just shrugged and went back to his article.
“But why though? You don't even like anyone down there,”Slash protested,”I need you here. I'm so bored and I miss you. Don't you miss me at all?”
“Of course miss you, Slash. You know that. But I have friends down here who need help with a few things but I promise I will get back there as soon as I can. Now I really have to go but I'll call you back later,babe.”
This answer made Slash calm down a little, his frown turning into a small smile after he heard Axl's truthful reply. But it would be better to hear it in person. He didn't want to hang up, it made him feel good just hearing his voice.
“OK. I love you,Axl.”
He heard Axl chuckle happily, Slash's eyes lighting up when he heard this.
“I love you too,baby. So much. Bye.”
Slash said goodbye and hung up, dumping the phone set on the floor before laying back against the arm of the sofa. He was bored again, there was no Axl next to him, whispering into his ear or telling him jokes. There wasn't a warm body wrapped around him, there was no red hair underneath his chin. Also Slash hadn't gotten laid in two whole weeks.....no wonder he was snapping at everyone.
The same moment, miles away, Axl Rose couldn't sleep either, he needed someone to talk to before he feel asleep. There was no-one to calm him down when he got frustrated or anxious. Axl growled, moving to the other side of the bed, hugging the pillow in his arms and he buried his face into the soft material of the pillow. But it didn't smell of smoke or peppermint, or there wasn't long curly, black hair that always coaxed him to sleep.
But it was all wrong. Axl sighed and rolled onto his back, staring at the ceiling. He didn't know how much he would miss Slash, they had only been together for half a year and they were joint at the hip. But right now, Axl felt like a part of him was missing, like he could only go for so long without Slash.
Axl gave it another ten minutes before he leapt out of his bed, stepping toward the drawers that held his clothes. He grabbed his bag off the floor next to the bed, he shoved his clothes in the bag as fast as he could. Grabbing a scrap of paper and a pen, Axl quickly wrote out a fast note for his parents and friends. Then afterwards as he stepped out of the house, he quickly called the airport, not caring how much or how late the flight was. He needed to see,Slash.
“I thought he was the needy one.” Axl mumbled as he called for a Taxi.
Sorry, had to leave.
Something really important came up.
A few tiring and frustrating hours later, Axl had finally made it to the front door of the apartment that the band shared. He dug around in his bag for the key, sighing as it took him a few minutes to find them. He opened the door, quietly stepping into the apartment, closing the door behind him. He dumped his bang on the floor and his keys on the counter as he passed the kitchen and made his way to his and Slash's bedroom. He made sure to be quiet when he passed Izzy, Steven and Duff's room.
Opening the bedroom door, Axl stepped into the room and his eyes were met with Slash's sleeping form. But it wasn't a peaceful sleep that the guitarist had when Axl was there. Slash was mumbling and moving in his sleep. He walked to Slash's side of the bed and he sat down at the edge, and he put out his hand, rubbing it up and down Slash's warm arm. Slash made a humming sound and moved closer to the contact.
Axl smiled and stood up and leaned down, pressing a small kiss to Slash's forehead,”Slash,baby.” Axl purred into his ear, his nose rubbing against Slash's. This made Slash stir and his eyes flutter open, and brown made contact. A smile broke out on Slash's face and he sat up, moving so that Axl could fit into the bed.
Slash pulled Axl into a long and needed hug,“What are you doing back? You said you'd been gone for longer.” Slash mumbled into Axl's neck, tightening his hold on the singer, who in return, hugged him back. Axl smiled happily, pressing another kiss to Slash's soft skin,”I missed you.”The guitarist whispered, pulling back so that he could press his forehead against his boyfriends.
“I missed you too.”Axl replied,”I couldn't sleep without you, so I got on the first plane that I could get and you sounded so fucked up on the phone that I needed to come home. I was miserable without you too, I had no-one to talk to.” Slash grinned for the first time in two weeks.
He was happy that his singer was hold but he was also happy that Axl would come home so quick, drop everything, just to come home to him. He and Axl lay down on the bed, Slash's arms wrapped around Axl tightly. Axl's fingers played with Slash's curls, hiding his face back into safe space that he had missed for 14 whole days. Slash chuckled and pulled him closer to his body.
They just lay there for a while just whispering to each other quietly, catching up about what the other had missed. Axl closed his eyes, just happy to hear Slash's voice. His voice was like a lullaby, he could listen to him for hours. He then felt Slash grabbing the duvet and pulling over their bodies, “Now we can finally both sleep properly.”Slash commented and this made Axl smile. Just as they were falling asleep, Axl moved closer to his boyfriends ear.“Slash?” Instantly, Slash's attention was on Axl,”Yeah?”
Axl pressed his lips to Slash's, kissing him as tenderly as possible. They kissed for a few minutes before Axl pulled back,”I love you,Slash.” He said sincerely, before he curled at Slash's side again. Slash smiled again, kissing the top of Axl's head,”I love you too. More than anything else.”
