Title: He's All Grown Up
Fandom/Pairing: NARNIA; Peter Pevensie/Edmund Pevensie
Notes: Written for the prompt "crowns" @ the 100foraslan challenge community. Second entry.
Summary: Edmund's all grown up. Peter isn't sure what to think.

They still share a room as if they are still three or five, or ten or eleven, or twelve, or thirteen. When it thunders, Edmund no longer jumps straight into Peter’s bed, or into Peter’s arms. He doesn’t crawl under Peter’s covers to sink cold feet under warm sheets after scary stories of boogiemen, and things that go bump, or boo in the dark. Edmund might be just a bit older than Lucy, but even Lucy was not quite as, well – easy to scare.

Not that Peter minds very. They’re both Kings now. They lord over Narnia; are responsible for her people. And what a King he is right now: Edmund the Just is jumping about on the bed, grinning like he can’t grin anymore.

He no longer pops under Peter’s sheets when lightning dares strikes. Doesn’t find it in himself to crawl into Peter’s space to hide away from the dark. Edmund sleeps on Peter’s bed.

Logistics are also logistics. They share a room. They share a bed. They share each other.

Peter curls hands upon his brother’s waist, causes him to pause in the middle of a spring that has him up in the air. Peter tucks him close, kills the moment. He tips the crown off Edmund’s head, lets it fall back onto royal sheets. Edmund moans against his mouth when their lips meet. Their bodies fall together in perfect tandem.

Peter pushes Edmund against the bed, lets the sheets sprawl, haphazardly, about them. It is the way it was. Way it is meant. Way it will always be.

It doesn’t burn Peter that Edmund doesn’t crawl from his own bed to his anymore – not when they share one together. Edmund doesn’t need to crawl so far into Peter’s arms. It makes holding him so much easier.
