Arthur inspects Eames' smile--he looks much more relaxed, maybe even happier now--then nods at the cabbie. "What did you say to him?"

"I told him that you're /so/ excited to be off on our honeymoon and that was why your speech was stunted," Eames says, without missing a beat. "That sweet man understood completely," he assures Arthur.

Arthur rolled his eyes so hard he thought they'd come out of his skull. "Honeymoon. /Right/," he drawled. "Well, aren't you going to get a shock when you see our room in Saint Lucia." Because he hadn't been able to book two rooms, or even a room with two beds. It was holiday season in the Caribbean, and they wouldn't be able to upgrade for another few nights, 'til someone else left.

"The beach is apparently ten feet from our back door," Arthur allows. "We'd better go check in. Come on. You want to check that luggage, or have it on the plane?"

Eames shoulders his bag. "Best to keep it on me, pet," he says. "I have mommy's little helper in there, along with a book or two for when it wears off and I'm left sitting next to your enchanting, but likely sleeping, self."

"Do I get to chose my own name, or have you picked one out for me?" Eames simpers.

(Quite all right!) Reluctantly, Arthur is impressed at how easily Eames chatters on to the woman at the check-in counter. He can only pick up one in every five words, but even he can tell that Eames sounds almost like a native speaker.

Eames winks at the steward when she walks away from them after they check in. She titters and blushes. That's nice, Eames thinks. Getting that kind of reaction. Does wonders for his ego, which is at an all time low at the moment. He walks him and Arthur away when they're done. "What to do now, Arthur? Shopping? I know you can't say no to a bit of duty-free," he teases.

Arthur looks at the bookshop longingly. "All right. Here." He hands Eames one of his cards. "Debit only. The pin is 0405. The equivalent of a thousand US dollars."

Eames blinks at him. He was only joking. But he takes the card, not really planning on using it. "I shan't spend it all in the one shop," he promises. He keeps Arthur's gaze for a moment longer than normal, thanking him as best he can for the trust he's being shown.

"I'll be in here." Arthur points to the bookshop. Then a menswear shop catches his eye, and he points to it, too. "Or in there." He needs to find some light clothes, suitable for a Caribbean island.

"I would be shocked if you were anywhere else," Eames says as he walks off to wander the halls of shops and see if there's any window shopping to be done. He glances at the ticket to see how long they have - not too much, not too little - and goes about the store windows and open displays.

There's nothing that catches his fancy. He wasn't expecting anything to, honestly. He doesn't feel the need to buy anything any more. Why would someone like him need baubles and gifts for people? There's a thought, though...

On his way back to meet with Arthur, he picks up a nice (muted) flat rim hat. Nothing too fancy, but it will suit Arthur wonderfully. Eames smiles to himself and tries to imagine something that wouldn't suit Arthur. The thought keeps him preoccupied all the way back to the bookshop.

Arthur is on page thirteen of a new novel of an author he likes. The store clerk is giving him dirty eyes and Arthur could tell that if he spoke the language, she'd probably be telling him this is a bookstore not a library so stop reading it and buy it or get out. It's a speech he's heard a thousand times. But he's so deep in figuring out the prologue that he almost doesn't hear Eames approach.

He sees the tips of his shoes, though, and looks up. He spots the hat in Eames' hands and looks suspicious. "Bored already?"

Eames puts the hat on Arthur's head and regards him. After a moment, he nods and smiles. "There. I knew I was right," he announces. "Come along, Arthur, we don't want to be late."

Arthur runs his fingers over the rim and sighs, but he doesn't take it off. He buys the book and heads after Eames, pausing only a moment to buy a light, white shirt to change into once they get off the plane. He always thinks of planes as freezing cold, so he won't change into it yet. Only when they walk out into the humid, sweltering Caribbean.

Why did he agree to this again?

Then he looks at Eames, who seems happier than he's been the entire time Arthur was trailing him, and remembers why.

Eames is happier. He's travelling again, something he didn't think he would be doing until he finally found a job (since he very quietly gave up on the idea of Arthur coming to him with anything), the man he's been in love with for years has finally admitted to trusting him enough to give him a credit card - which is significant, really, since their lives are all about thrills and money. Someone cares, right now, or is at least doing a pretty good job at pretending.

He's richer than he has been for a long time right now.

And he gets to look at Arthur whenever he likes. Now, if they just had a batch of Yusef's best and a nice, interesting mark then everything would be right as rain.

Instead, what they have is a very long--or several not quite as long, with the connectors--flight to a tropical island, all expenses paid. Arthur has saved very wisely, but when he gets in the mood to spend, when he has a reason to spend, he doesn't skimp. They're staying at a nice place--part of the reason why it's so solidly booked out. They're going to eat good food and drink good wine and try out a few new things while awake, then try and get some sleep.

And they'd stay on the island as long as it took to get them some proper rest, god damn it, or Arthur's name wasn't Arthur. (It wasn't, but it had been for quite a while, so it almost felt like his name.) Maybe they'd even stay on the island as long as it took to get them to get along permanently like they had been for the past few hours.

Eames hasn't bothered to think of the plans Arthur's made for the trip. He's too impressed with the cocktail he was given to knock him out, far too excited to be going somewhere nearly new, and much too surprised to find himself ravenous on the flight. This changes, of course, after he eats a few bites of the plane food. Though he does smile at the stewards and thank them and apologise more than he has to when they take the food away.

For the record, Eames believes completely that the only reason why Arthur's putting up with the jabs and the teases and the pet names and the presents is because Eames is doing what he wants him to do. Which is fine. It's nice not being shot down for once, if only for a little while. Eames isn't an idiot, he knows this can't last.

The only reason Arthur is putting up with all that is because if Eames stopped, then something would be seriously wrong. That he's still flirting and messing around and annoying Arthur with a big grin on his face is comforting; it means Eames is still there, still hanging on, even if by the barest fingertips.

If Eames suddenly stopped, there would be something seriously wrong.

So Arthur wears the hat until Eames passes out, after the food, and then he rests it on Eames' head, the brim tipped down to shield Eames' eyes from the cabin lights.

It's entirely possible that Eames positions himself so that he'll lean into Arthur, on his shoulder, when he does fall asleep. It's a trick he managed to figure out on one of his early seducing jobs, and he's never really forgotten it. Something about having someone fall asleep on you, it makes you a little happy. Unless you completely despise the person - but if anything Arthur only dislikes Eames. He'll be fine.

Though he doesn't sleep for long. A big enough jolt from turbulence shakes Eames out of the drug haze and back into reality. He has got to stop being so sensitive to kicks.

Arthur does soften quite a bit when Eames' head droops onto his shoulder. He can't help the smile spreading over his face. He pulls out his book, careful not to disturb Eames, and settles in to read while Eames sleeps.

Then the turbulence comes, and Arthur drops his book, heart jolted by the drop in his equilibrium.

He realises Eames is awake, and drops his hand onto Eames' leg. "It's all right. Go back to sleep."

Eames blinks blearily at Arthur, and puts a hand over his right before he wakes up properly. He lets it drop. "I'm afraid that's not on the cards any more, love," Eames says, voice muggy. He sits up and stretches. "How long do we have left?"

Eames stretches and leans into Arthur's shoulder at the same time. "Mm," he mumbles, bringing his arms down and rubbing his eyes. "I think I'll be just fine. And that I'll take a walk once I can feel my legs again. How was the flight for you?"

Eames smiles. "No, I don't. It's what makes me such a catch, pet," he winks. "You do. But it's quiet. I don't mind." He unclicks his seatbelt to stand up before they put on the lights for landing.

"I do not snore," Arthur says, affronted. Of course, the last time he slept in the same room as someone was probably when he dozed off next to Cobb, making sure he didn't follow Mal out the window that terrible night.

Eames smirks and goes on his stroll around the cabin. He may sweet-talk an old lady or two while he's doing it, just to keep his spirits up. He's back in his chair and belted up just around the time the light switches on.

He feels better already. Amazing what a bit of (dreamless) sleep can do for a man.

Eames makes sure to lift Arthur's new hat carefully from his seat before sitting down, and then placing it jauntily on Arthur's head.

Arthur rolls his eyes but doesn't protest. It's been a long while since anyone's bought anything for him; he certainly hadn't expected Eames to get him something, not even a hat. He slips his book into his bag and kicks it under the seat in front of him, and settles in for landing. He likes take-offs and landings.

Eames zones out for the landing, and the leaving of the airport, and the taxi ride back. He doesn't know if it's the drugs or the fact that his body isn't used to sleep or maybe it's just the state that he's in already, but he needs constant stimulus to actually feel like he's there. Once they get to the hotel he perks up, though, and starts making jokes again and smiling and teasing. But before that he'd be like a husk for a little while.

Course, it could be that he's only eaten one or two bites of food in nearly an entire day of travel.

Once their bags are in their room--and that bed does not look big enough for two grown men, but the hotel staff assured them that as soon as someone left, their room would be upgraded (Arthur speaks fluent French, so Creole isn't that difficult to figure out)--Arthur hustles Eames down to the beachside restaurant. His own stomach is growling. Airplane food doesn't agree with him so he doesn't eat it. But he's looking forward to trying some freshly caught seafood.

Eames isn't. But he does want to be near the water for a while, for some reason. He thinks there's something about the waves that'll just make him feel better.

They don't really make him feel better, not really, but they do give him something to look at while he drifts off again. While he thinks very hard about how they're going to deal with one bed and who Arthur is going to put on the floor with some pillows and who's going to get the mattress. How much he'd love to wake up next to Arthur's soft snoring, or just lay there listening again. How everything suddenly seems entirely unfair and maybe Arthur isn't being kind at all, but this is just an elaborate plan to pay Eames back for teasing him for years. Arthur is a devil for his precise strikes, after all.

He tries not to let anything show on his face and just watches the waves while Arthur orders.

Arthur takes note of what everyone likes to eat whenever he hears them order something, so he has vague ideas about Eames' preferences. He's hoping that once Eames smells the hot, fresh food in front of him, he'll want to eat it; there's more colour in his cheeks since breathing in the smell of the ocean.

A bowl of hot potato chips arrives almost immediately, and Arthur pushes it at Eames. "Have one," he says, and if he was anyone else he'd have been pleading.

Eames doesn't even look away from the view. "I won't eat all your chips, Arthur," he says pleasantly. "Go ahead and enjoy them." The smell turns Eames' stomach slightly. He tries not to think about it and takes a sip of water. After a moment, before Arthur can say anything back to him, Eames tugs at his sleeve just slightly and points out to the sea. "Have you ever seen anything so pleasant? I admit to not being a huge fan of the ocean before but tonight..."

He drifts off again, very aware that he's close to begging Arthur to tell him what his intentions are, why he's doing this. He's just tired and paranoid and it's making him emotional. Ridiculous.

Eames nearly laughs at himself.

"They aren't my chips, they're the starter." Arthur sighs, and looks out over the water. "I must admit, this place is beautiful. You chose well." If only they were here under happier circumstances; a romantic tropical getaway, or something. But Arthur's just happy Eames is here. Small victories are the most important, sometimes.

Eames flicks a glance over to the chips and gives Arthur a Look. He sighs, and takes one and eats it slowly. It repeats on him almost instantly, and Eames makes a face, but takes another. The look on Arthur's face is enough to keep him doing a lot of things he doesn't want to.

"When it comes to picking destinations," Eames says eventually, remembering that they were talking. "I seem to be the best. It's a gift I was born with, darling. It can't be taught."

Arthur relaxes a bit when Eames eats. That's something he'll have in his stomach, at least. "Ah, but I always seem to choose destinations where people end up offering me jobs," he points out, grinning.
