A few minutes after a certain post, Mat gets a visitor.

A very furry visitor, which carefully thumps at Mat's door with a paw, then just sits in front of the door, tail curled neatly around him, waiting, looking as friendly as it's possible for a lion to look.

Mat opens the door, and is the picture of rumpled misery. Sweatpants, socks, rumpled t-shirt, and hair going every which way. He sees the lion, sitting there all prim and proper, smiles a tiny bit, and stands aside to let him in.

"You didn't have to come, you know."

He's glad he did.

Mat reaches down to scratch his back as he passes, and closes the door.

Then hesitates.

"You're not going to think I'm a huge girl if I... cuddle... will you?"

Mat smiles, just a bit, and moves to flop out on the bed. There's plenty of room if Gene wants up. "Yeah, I'm a fucking girl anyway, I know. You don't even have to be able to say it."

Mat's response to the licking is...

Well, he takes it like a kitten. He makes one of those 'yeah, I know, at least none of my friends are around' faces and just sits there and lets him.

He doesn't say anything when Gene makes that 'oops' face. And when he starts to purr...

He buries his face in Gene's mane and tries not to think about everything that his making him fucking miserable.

Also he's glad his brother isn't in the room, because he doesn't think Nate would take kindly to him snuggling his ward. Mostly just because they can't stand each other.

Right.

Right.

He's okay. He is, he really is, despite the fact that he's just... all over the place.

"I think Sam's still kind of mad at me for the... the thing," he says, a bit abruptly. "With Natasha."

One of many things weighing on him. Might as well ramble to the cat.
