Eames smiles tightly. He honest-to-fuck just got a tight ball in his stomach and it has nothing to do with how he's reacting to food or anything else. He's dying to be on a job right now. Reality's flat. It's hurtful. Eames wishes that either of them had a PASIV, just so he could - but it doesn't matter because they don't and he knows it.

"That's an impressive trick, Arthur," he says out loud.

"Sometimes one I wished I couldn't do." Arthur tilts his head a little, inspecting Eames' expression. "Is something wrong?"

Eames laces his fingers and rests his head on them, looking at Arthur with an almost amused expression on his face. "Do you know how many people I would gladly kill for a job right now?" he keeps his tone light, since the waiter arrives at that moment with their food.

Arthur's eyes are fixed on Eames, working out if he's truly serious, even as the waiter brings their food and leaves again. He hardly notices it in front of him. Then he sighs. "I think you mean, how many people you'd kill for a /dream/ right now."

Eames sits back and waves his hand dismissively. "Either way. With a job, I would get paid to dream," he looks at the food in front of them and slumps slightly. "And to dream well."

Arthur remembers all-too-well how Eames is feeling right now. The dream world is much more beautiful and vivid and /real/, sometimes, than the real world, and you can control it. You can't control real life, you can only live it. And inception must be the ultimate dreaming high.

He starts to eat, only picking at his food. "There must be something about the real world you like. That you can hang onto."

Eames laughs and pushes his food around his plate with a fork. "Plenty of things I like, love," he smirks. "Nothing I can hold on to. But don't worry your head about it. I'll be just fine after a little while. Isn't that what you said?" He tilts his head, still smirking and voice friendly but his eyes are definitely begging Arthur to tell him something. Anything, at this point, to make it seem okay right now.

Eames' smile nearly crumbles into something overly-emotional before he catches it. He has to look away from Arthur for a moment to get it back to its original state. "Thank you," he says. "But you do realise that means you'll have to run into the sea with me once or twice? Because I have a plan."

That startles a laugh out of Arthur, though it's a soft laugh--he didn't miss that crumbling expression, but he'll politely let it go. "Oh? What kind of plan involves running in to the sea? Can I wear swim shorts?"

Eames appreciates Arthur being a gentleman and ignoring his moment of ridiculousness. "You know I can't tell you the plan," he chides. "And no. But I won't be making you go in naked, don't worry." He pauses, thinking. "Not the first time."

Eames smirks again, and he feels almost human once more. "I know," he says. "That's why I'm doing it. I shouldn't be the only one who's lost it while we're here. It's only fair you join me in madness."

Eames bites his lip, overly flirtatious. "Oh, Arthur," he coos. "I love it when you talk dirty like that."

Eames fully intends on making Arthur ruin one of his precious suits. He wants to see one in tatters, if he can, but water will have to do.

"Aren't they always, when I'm around," Eames finishes his water and looks to his food. It seems better to eat the chips than what he has right now, so he does. Though he covers them in salt first.

Arthur outright laughs this time. "No, not Cobb. No, it was Mal. She was the romantic. She said I was too much like stone; I needed a little give. So she made me read romance novels. Used to quiz me on them to make sure I was reading them." It doesn't hurt as much to talk about Mal anymore; or at least, not with Eames.

"Did you like them?" Eames asks after a moment. He can't see Arthur enjoying something like that. Though, if he's honest, he does like the idea of a messy Arthur sitting in some French farmhouse reading romance novels. It appeals to him.

He pauses and thinks about it. "I think I started to understand why others liked them. I'm sure if I'd continued to read them, talk about them with Mal, I would've come to enjoy them simply because it was something we shared."

"I used to read quite a few," Eames admits. "They're always available in train stations and airports, for very little money. And I travelled a lot before," he waves his hand. "Everything. So I read things that didn't tax me too much, or didn't influence me in any way. I don't know if you know this, darling," Eames smiles. "But I'm quite a romantic already."

Eames may redden, but he scolds himself for misreading something Arthur's said as flirting. Again. Instead, he smiles wider. "Why, Arthur. I do believe that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me," he says, and he tries not to think about how true that is.

Eames, despairingly, thinks Ah. He knows, and gives Arthur a strange look right back. Then he goes back to looking out onto the ocean, this time recalling Cobb's description of Limbo and wondering if it would be entirely bad to be lost like that. He completely forgets the pure rage he felt at the prospect while on that job.

Arthur is quiet for a moment, sure that Eames is agreeing with him, and goes back to picking at his seafood. Then he says, "Well. If it makes you so uncomfortable to have someone you don't like saying nice things to you, you could just tell me to stop."

Eames looks back at him. "Arthur," he sighs, completely serious for once. And very, very tired. "I couldn't dislike you if I tried. Please continue to say nice things about me. It's very pleasant." He thinks.

Arthur looks at Eames for a long moment, but Eames is a consummate actor. His entire profession is built around acting, around /being/ someone else. But he nods, anyway. "All right." He cracks something of a smile. "I'll see what I can do."

Eames tries to smile back and nearly manages it. He can't take this any longer, however, and he needs a break. His heart and his head need a break. He pushes back from the table and stands up. "I can't eat another bite, love," he says lightly, even if his voice sounds hollow even to him. "Help yourself to mine. I'm going to try to get to sleep before you get back, maybe take more of the little sleeping aid. Kick me out of the bed if you need to." He picks up the hat that's sitting on the table by Arthur's plate and puts it back on his head, playfully, then leaves.

Arthur doesn't even pretend to not watch him go. He's worried about Eames, and he's finding it more and more difficult to hide just how much he wants Eames in his life. So he watches him go, and decides from the slump of Eames' shoulders that he'll give him a few hours to himself. They'll be spending enough time together later. He does finish his meal, and picks at Eames, and has another bottle of beer as the sun sets over the ocean.

When the restaurant starts filling up with couples, he leaves, and walks along the beach. He gets sand in his shoes and he takes them off, walking barefoot right up to the back door of their room, and then he sits on the deck chair and watches the water for a while.

Eames goes straight to the hotel room, kicks off his shoes and slumps in the bed. He curls up a little and even indulges in some thoroughly morbid thoughts before moving on to the usual running away from anything difficult schtick he's got going for himself. It takes a moment - more like a full hour - before Eames sits up and undresses for bed. The sun is setting and Eames can see the beach from the bed, though the large window at the front of the room.

How romantic, he thinks. Which is exactly what prompts him to take some of the sleeping drug to knock himself out and stop thinking for just one second about how pathetically lonely he is, even with someone with him. It doesn't really count, after all, if that someone is Arthur, constantly breaking his heart minute after minute.

He doesn't even have time to pull the blankets over him before he passes out.

When Arthur finally lets himself back into the room, silently, using all his skill not to wake Eames, he stops and looks at Eames for a moment. The kind of passed out sleep Eames is indulging in right now comes only from--yes, there it is. Arthur spots the bottle on the bedside table.

He's not surprised. He used Cobb's sleeping pills for weeks at the farmhouse. But he's determined not to let Eames get addicted to this stuff to sleep. Detox is not something he wants Eames to have to go through right now; he's got enough on his plate.

Arthur finds a couple of blankets in the linen closet. He settles one over Eames, and curls up on the two-person sofa with the other. He's out like a light before his head hits the armrest. It's been a long day.

Eames does not dream.

He can't dream on that stuff anyway, but there's always a part of him that wakes up disappointed. He rubs at his eyes and sits up, looking around him. The bed is surprisingly comfortable and that's enough to jolt him into a lot of paranoia, completely forgetting what he's done in the past forty-eight hours. He pushes off the blankets from his legs and is nearly dressed by the time he sees Arthur on the couch and sits back down. That's right; Arthur gave him the drugs. And brought him here. And paid for everything.

He sighs heavily and puts his head in his hands. He made Arthur do all these things and then forces him to take the couch. Fantastic, Mr. Eames, he mocks himself in Arthur's voice. Well done. You must be so proud of yourself.

The vague noises of movement register on the edge of Arthur's consciousness, and he starts to wake. He knows that once he opens his eyes he'll be awake for sure, so he lazes for a moment, keeping them closed, pretending he's one of those people that can just slip back into sleep easily.

Then he remembers Eames, and his eyes fly open. He sees Eames sitting on the edge of the bed, looking almost desolate. "Good morning," he says, carefully. He sits up, the blanket falling off his shoulders.

"Arthur," Eames greets him and brings his head up to smile weakly at him. "Do me a favor, won't you, and take the bed tonight? I'll probably benefit from being on the couch. Something I'm used to. Frankly, I don't know why I didn't take it last night. Shall I order in some breakfast?"

So long as he keeps talking and moving, he'll be just fine.

"Breakfast sounds good," Arthur agrees. "We'll sort out the bed when it comes time for sleep, I think. There's always the possibility that we could simply share it. I didn't want to wake you last night to discuss it, but the idea did occur to me."

Eames finishes getting dressed, slower now that he's not manic and worried. He doesn't answer straight away. Could he handle that? Would he even want to subject Arthur to that? Eames cuddles naturally anyway, what the hell would happen if it was Arthur next to him. And he'd wake up next to Arthur, in real life, warm and breathing and real and Eames would beg, he knows he would, for Arthur to stay and pretend. It wouldn't be pretty. Eames is quite fond of the sliver of dignity he still has.

"Let me think about it, pet," he says, pulls on a shirt without buttoning it and leans over the bed to call their breakfast in.
