Jake Jensen often woke up in odd surroundings. It was part of the packaged deal that went with being able to sleep pretty much anywhere and through almost anything. Unless someone was actively talking to him (sometimes not even then), he could keep on sleeping while people moved equipment and furniture. More than once, the result had been that hed been half-buried in the back of a truck or cargo plane.
This time, he woke up with most of his top half on the coffee table and the rest of him on the couch, tangled in blanket. He could smell fresh chocolate chip cookies. An old mambo tune was playing on Beths beat-up little boombox, and his favorite voice in the world was softly singing alongand if his damn foot werent falling asleep, hed be perfectly content to stay put for another hour.
You guys been remodeling in my sleep? Jensen slurred, still unwilling to open his eyes.

Third Times a Charm
Apparently, before Jensen joined the Losers, they Didnt Do Holidays.
Holidays were a luxury the Losers could rarely afford. Christmas was usually the only one they could count on, and theyd missed it twice (once just after Pooch joined, and hed been useless and mopey the whole day Jensen wouldve loved to see that). Sometimes they could get Thanksgiving or Independence Day (that one was especially nice, because a set of dogtags and a military ID could get them all shit-faced on less than ten bucks).
They didnt even bother with birthdays.
Jensen put a stop to that boring shit right away.
Jensen would make a big deal out of almost any national holiday (and a few from other countries) plus Halloween. Hed thought about trying for more, but hed only been with the gang for just shy of two years, and he didnt want to try Clays patience (Roque was different, it was fun to

Cougar has never been jealous before.
If he wanted something that someone else had, he either got one of his own or he got over it. In high school, if he wanted someone, he smiled and pouted and found excuses to take his shirt off. There had never been the worry of unrequited desire, because hed never been attracted to someone who couldnt be seduced, and never wanted more than each person was ready to give. His tastes at the time (and the tastes of all his partners) had been loose and fast-changing, so none of his relationships were designed to last more than a few days. In fact, he could slip right into the middle of somebody elses relationship, do them both a few times, and slip right back out without even leaving a mark (beyond the usual wow, that was fun).
So this jealousy shit is new to him. And he doesnt like it.
He has no basis of comparison for this feeling. Muc

It was maybe three months after Jensen joined the Losers that he got to see firsthand how much Cougar hated the cold.
Jensen thought it was the funniest thing hed ever seen, and he wanted everyone to know it.
This is hilarious, he said.
Roque glanced sidelong at him. You better watch yourself, kid. He comes over this fire at you, I aint stopping him.
But Jensen couldnt help it. He waved a hand before using it to squeeze his marshmallows to see if they were done. Look at him! he snickered. Its barely below freezing, and hes acting like its a fucking ice age, man! He looks like a little kid. Besides, its a big fire, I think Im safe.
Cougar glared miserably through the gap between scarf and hat, but didnt bother to respond.
You know how he got his nickname? Roque asked idly, turni
