Some Emmet and Lord Business.
Emmet is surprised - more than surprised - as he feels Lord Business come crashing into him with so much momentum behind his solid frame that it almost knocks Emmet from his feet. He’s not sure why it never even occurred to him that this might be some kind of attack… it just didn’t seem that way. He’s not sure what it is, exactly, until he feels the villain’s arms come up around him, holding him in a crushing hug that could almost be painful if not for the sheer need of it.
Emmet understands this.
He does. He knows this feeling, complete in the small tremors of Business’ arms, the catch between breaths. Oh yes, he knows it. Nights upon nights of those lingering moments before sleep when he’d curled an arm around his pillow, buried his face against it and pretended it had the weight and warmth of a living person.
It’s hard to be lonely. Harder to admit it, even to yourself.
His arms come up, coiling around the man’s shoulders, eyes closing for a moment. Not letting go… not until Business let go.
You never know just how long someone needs to be hugged, after all…
Had a bit of fun with Illustrator this evening. Did the usual thing of submitting it to a couple of shirt sites. If anything comes up I’ll post it here :)
Edit: This is also potentially available as a t shirt on Qwertee! If you want it, you can vote for it and it might be selected :) go to www.qwertee.com/product/build and vote if you like it.
