Summary: Mark and Seb's reunion hadn't lasted very long
A/N: Sequel to 'The Perfect Crime'. and 'The River I Cried'.
Word count: 1000

Seb was convinced that he’d never get to see Mark again, to hold him or to touch him or to kiss him or to love him, but they’d worked it out- they were happy. He was smiling again when he thought he’d be miserable for the rest of his life (he’d told Mark about that feeling and Mark had just laughed- they’d been apart for barely over a week after all). He was happy- he and Mark were working again, even better than they had been before and he wasn’t willing to let that go. He walked into dinner, too caught up in his own joy to notice the strange looks everyone was giving him. He dropped into the seat next to Mark and just watched Mark for a minute. He reached out towards where Mark’s hand was resting on the table and frowned heavily when Mark pulled his hand away. His worries were eased slightly when he saw Mark pick up a cup of coffee- that was definitely a reasonable excuse for moving. He hesitated, staring at Mark for another few minutes, before daring to reach out towards him again. He knew that he touched Mark- he had a distinctive memory of feeling Mark tense beneath his touch- but it was barely a second later that Mark was pushing his hand away.

“Don’t touch me.”

Seb’s eyes widened. He tried to reach back out towards Mark, but he didn’t get the chance.

Mark stood up and stepped back, out of Seb’s reach.

“How could you?”

Seb opened and closed his mouth a few times before speaking.

“Mark, please. I don’t understand.”

“It’s all a fucking joke to you, isn’t it?”

Seb tried to speak again, but Mark was storming out of the room before he got the chance to say a word. He stared at the spot Mark had been stood in for several minutes before slowly turning around. He looked around the room and wonders how he could have failed to notice those looks before. He stared down at his hands, half-expecting everyone to yell at him, but there are minutes of silence before Christian is talking to him.

“Do you know what you said today, Seb?”

“Said?” Seb frowned- he hadn’t talked to Mark since this morning when they were very much happy. “I haven’t even… No.” He put a hand to his mouth when the realisation hit him. “I didn’t mean…”

“Did you expect him to let that one go too? Doing it in the race is one thing- that’s your job- but why didn’t you leave it out there?”

“I did. They asked and asked and… I love him.”

“That’s not enough anymore. He…” Christian shook his head. “You two are going to be the death of me. You’ll have to find a way to work together and I don’t care how you do it. This goes no further than today. Do you understand me?”

Seb bit on his lower lip, but nodded.

“I will fix it.” Seb stood up. “I will.” He started walking towards the door.

“And in future, Seb, please learn when to keep your mouth shut- you are making all of our jobs infinitely more difficult.”


Christian’s words echoed in Seb’s mind as he rushed towards Mark’s room. He didn’t mean it. Oh, god, he didn’t mean it. He had to fix this, do whatever it took. He was banging on the door to Mark’s room for almost five minutes before he realised that it was open. He hesitated for a few seconds before pushing the door open and stepping inside. He looked around the dark room several times before his eyes adjusted enough to be able to make out Mark’s outline by the window. He took a few steps forward and opened his mouth, but no words came out.

Mark had known Seb would follow him from the second he’d left the room, but now Seb was here he wasn’t sure what to do.

Seb pushed the door shut and walked across the room. He stopped a few paces back from Mark. He looked around for the light switch, but before he could even take a step towards it, Mark was speaking.

“Don’t do it. I don’t want to look at you.”

Seb clamped his mouth shut- he remembered Mark saying that before and, not long afterwards, things got bad for him. He turned to the side and looked at Mark.

Mark clenched his jaw and stared out of the window.

Seb reached out towards Mark, but he could practically feel Mark flinch from where he was stood so he drew his hand back.

Mark folded his arms across his chest.

“I didn’t hear. I didn’t understand. I’d ignore them anyway. I’d do it again. He didn’t deserve it.” Mark slowly turned his head to the side to look at Seb. “I don’t care. I don’t love him. That’s what you really wanted to say, isn’t it?”

“No, Mark.” Seb reached out towards Mark. “I would never…”

“Stop. I don’t want to hear it.”


“No. No! This shit was supposed to be over with, Seb- we were supposed to forget about it and move on. You said you forgave me, that it was over, that… We’re not back to how it was and we can’t even make it work now.” Mark shook his head. “You never really forgave me, did you?”


“I don’t wanna do this anymore. Just go.”


“I said go!” Mark had moved- turned to the side and grabbed Seb’s arms- before he even realised it. “Go!”

Seb bit back a gasp, but willed himself not to move.

“You would not do that again.”

“No.” Mark leant forward. “That would be too easy.” He pushed Seb away. “Go.”



Seb stood there for a minute, staring at Mark.

“I love you.”

Mark had turned away and was staring out of the window again.

Seb took a small step forward.

“Please remember that. Always.”

Oh Seb, what have you done? Why couldn't you just have kept those thoughts to yourself?

This is all you fault. Two weeks ago I was all for lynching the vile Vettel and his cheating ways on the racetrack. But now I want them to work, and it's all gone very wrong. Now Mark has to get angry and try and forgive again, and that won't be easy. You may love him Seb, but that may not be enough.

And back in the real world. Nice writing again, I enjoyed it.

Because he's an idiot who just doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut

It's not my fault- it's their fault for breaking up in front of the whole world. They're making me care about formula 1, god damn and Mark Webber? He only Tweeted about cycling- it's like he wants me to love him!

No, it's not going to be easy for them, but they'll get there in the end

Oh, thank you! I did kind of enjoy this bit, as angsty as it was

Oh God... he's another Jakob.

They share the blame, it's your fault for providing me with such excellent reading material ;b

Blimeyu, strady, that's a whole different ball game. You're not channeling Lewis and Button are you? He did what? *scurries off to find MW twitter account* OMG his twitter name is @Aussie Grit... too fabulous.


It was angsty but handled with your ususal flair for difficult conversations

Except, I think Jakob doesn't really have any idea what's going on or what he's really saying, but Seb is very well aware of it all

Okay, maybe it's my fault a little

He also totally Tweeted a picture of him and Fernando Alonso, which absolutely looked like a date and thus another fic idea was born :S

Aw! Thank you!

No, not been lured into another Jakob post.
Seb uses words as a weapon.

;D Dear God, just read my last comment. Strewn with typos and I was using a proper keyboard as well. Proof reading, that's the focus for today.

NO, stop it now. Delete that photo and never look at it again. You have poor Bernie in that hooker fic to help and lordy knows how many other angst ridden cyclists to deal with lest alone the George/Sagan !notbaby fiend to deal with. It's only 4 days 'till the Giro and 10 weeks to the TDF... give the guys a break :D :D :D

Isn't every post a Jakob post? Apart from the posts about Bernie, of course
He makes it far too easy to hate him

Totally understandable

It's going to be turned into a fic sometime, though, but, yeah- right now I'm working on other things. Currently, I'm delighting in Brad being awesome and then bro-ing it up with Andy and Berto

Oh dear am I that predictable :(
Now I haven't written about Bernie for ages though.
I can alsways do a lengthy piece about Froome???
Scrub the above... Bernie and Jakob 4ever I don't care hahahahaha
Seriously though, tell mr shut up if it's too much... I won't mind.

Brad is always good value, even when he's in twit mode. ohh brandy and Berty... makes a change.

It's okay to be predictable sometimes. And it's nice to talk about Bernie and Jakob usually

It's turning out to be such a nice fic to write/plan/think about and I'm not sure I can even properly explain why

You shouldn't even try... Just go with the gut feeling.

I feel like they need to explain it, though, but then they're all being 'We just understand each other' and I'm working on the basis that that's explanation enough and now they're basically teaming up to take over the world (in a good way)

on 2013-04-30 10:36 pm (UTC)

With those guys on board, the explanation would be so long long and involved it just wouldn't be worth it. Better to go along with what they say. What an alliance they will make!

Yaay Taylor. Did you see the photo of him posing with bling shoes?

They keep trying to explain it because everyone wants to know, but they can't find the words mostly so I'm just going with 'It works because it works' or 'It works because I say it works'. They mostly just want to hang out and be awesome together and I kind of love them

Is that not like every other picture of Taylor? ;P I haven't seen a recent one, though

That is absolutely the right thing to do. They would be 'cool gang' in any peloton scenario.

I guess so, but he does it well. I'll try and find it on my twitter line. He also tweeted today about wearing pink jeans. He must be very secure in his masculinity to attempt that :D

That's exactly what they are! And they're awesome and I love them and I love this fic. Cav decided to understand a little bit today, though, which was nice of him- he then proceeded to mock Brad some so it was off-set slightly, but totally worked

I saw that about the pink jeans. Taylor is definitely something else, for sure, but he's always totally shipping himself with Alex (and then Fabian and Tom for a bit too) so it's no wonder we get such nice Tweets from him

Brandy and Berto hanging around, being cool in Lycra and shades. You know when cyclists are waiting at the start of a race and they are astride the bike, but not sitting on the saddle, they always have one leg stuck out straight, and they've got the Oakleys on and are chatting or staring moodily. THAT is how I see the cool gang. I bet everyone is desperate to know what's going on, and can they join in please?

Ah, I was wondering when Cav would show up, because he would back Brad any day of the week. I am pleased to hear he was cooperative, and also that he's not letting Brad being a Sir put him off treating exactly as he's always done.

He does, can't wait to see what the Giro produces, because Alex is there! They won't be able to resist will they. iRL I wonder if Taylor has a bit of a thing for the lady features writer from cycling weekly... Always tweeting.

Mostly, Cav is so far being the only one who's asking Brad what's going on with him and Andy and Berto- everyone else is worrying about other stuff. He's just in it a little, though, because it's not about him understanding- the fic is basically really about Brad (and Andy and Berto) kicking ass

I think Taylor has a bit of a thing for most ladies, tbh

on 2013-05-01 10:52 pm (UTC)

That is because Cav can hang with the cool gang and be accepted, so he can ask these questions. Well I'd be worried about other stuff too, like how the hell I am going to be on a bike for 3 weeks and climb all those mountains. :)

Well he's young, it's only natural.

Cav is not so much nagging with them, though, but he's worried less now about Brad, which is good (although, in the long run- I mean LONG run- he ultimately ends up worrying about Brad more). That sounds awfully confusing, but I still love the whole idea and it's actually working in fic form so you will get to see how it all plays out properly and not just in garbled comments on the subject.

It does make sense, yes

Oh dear, have you started another epic? I don't know how you keep them all in your head.. More power to you.

For some light relief, you should write a short one off piece on Frank and Jakob in a gay bar... No strings attached, no sequels necessary ;d

Seriously though, I'm glad it's going well and you are pleased with it.

Btw did you see elladella's latest fic post? Nice bit of dark magic going on there.

I started a while ago, actually, and it wasn't meant to be epic. It was supposed to be a little thing about Brad being awesome one day in the Tour and now it's turning into this huge thing and I'm not quite sure what to do

Except in my head that already turned into a massive thing. I need to get myself reacquainted with drabbles, I think

I'm really loving this one right now so I'm riding that wave of enthusiasm for as long as I can

TBH I really don't like Andy/Berto just together and I know the writing would be awesome (I've read some of her other fics), but I think not shipping the pairing the fic is about would not really work for me

Well you do have. Thing for epics... but you know you did really well with the memes, maybe drabbles or double drabbles would be a good thing. You have so many brill ideas that they spark off each other and before you know it you have a huge story. Maybe write them as standalones that then make a series or something. Are you planning to do RPF Big Bang with one of your epics?
But hell, you're writing and enjoying it, so just carry on as you are I say.

I do know what you mean, if you can't buy into the relationship then it's hard to invest in the story, no matter how well written. But Jeez, in this one Berto woke up and his willy was missing, what a great cliffhanger!!! Seemed spookily good timing after our previous comments on dark and magic !notHogwarts fics.

I'll try and drabble it up soon (or write about that one time Sebastian Vettel punched Fernando Alonso in the face), but I'm actually really making good progress with this epic right now so I'm just gonna roll with it. I know it goes on for much longer than just this one fic, though, so I should totally get points for not writing it all in the same story
I would have done, but they're not doing RPF Big Bang this year. Maybe I could just find another big bang to participate in

It sounds like an interesting story for sure, but I just can't get invested

Oh I should have guessed from your reply that something is gonna happen! :O oh gosh Seb why can't you ever keep your stupid mouth shut, bb.

Heart breaking, this verse, absolutely so. But I love it. :)

They were going to be okay after the last one, but like you said Seb can't keep his stupid mouth shut

I think they're going to be okay in the end, though, but, yeah. probably more heartbreak to come first

Thank you for reading!

I keep getting confused when i read this fic though i am not sure why i think part of it may be thatthe sun has fried my brain ...

Perfectly understandable reason ;) I could try and make things not so confusing next time?

It wasn't confusing to a person to half a brain but unfortunately every time I read it my brain was off somewhere so to me it confused me however my brain made a brief return and I re read all three fics and it makes sense now :) I really feel bad for mark now he just acts like a broken puppy and seb well I think his brain has gone on holiday and hasn't been back for a couple weeks now someone needs to help that boy out and put up missing posters !!

I'm pretty sure this comment makes no sense but with my brain in and out like it has been (btw still blaming the sun for that especially since it was sunny today) this is as good as its getting right now :) loving the fics btw :)

Mostly, now, I just want to say that I think Mark is a broken puppy :(
