Dick stared into the cold blue eyes.

They could be colder though.

The deep furrow in the brow spoke of resentment and keen distaste.

He'd seen darker looks.

The lips were curled in a grimace laced with contempt.

All in all, he had seen much worse.

"It's amazing, the things you learn about a person when you live with them."

Tim's voice shocked Dick, causing him to jump away from the bathroom mirror. He was half-dressed for a night of 'winging it, with his pants and boots on, but he still needed to put on the upper half.

Tim had taken his toothbrush to the bedroom to pick out his clothes for the morning. Spitting out the last of the foamy paste, he grinned up at his lover.

"I never would have thought you were vain, but with the amount of time you spend in front of the mirror at night..."

Dick stiffened. He hated getting caught.

"I'm not vain," he muttered. "I always practice..." He stopped short, not wanting to embarrass himself any more than necessary.

Tim rinsed and watched Dick's reddening face inquisitively. After a moment's reflection, he got it.

Mastering the art of laughing and talking at the same time, he said, "You practice scowling before going out each night?!!!?!!!? Oh my GOD, you are so pathetic!"

Dick listened to him laugh all the way to bed, where he tucked himself in between giggles. Turning back to the mirror, Dick regarded the image in the glass carefully.

"Well, I don't have to practice anymore..."
