Something was wrong. Something was very wrong. Ringo rubbed at his bleary eyes as if that might help the fog clear from his brain. What was it?
The tea was missing.
"Yes?" Ringo nearly jumped out of his socks as he turned around. Of course the bugger was already up. He didn't have any trouble falling asleep at night. Well, there was the occasional nightmare, but he hadn't had those since their last time on the road.
"You're up a bit early, aren't ya?" George asked, a slight smirk tugging at his lips. Ringo glanced at the clock and glared at his friend. It was two in the afternoon.

That was how I knew that I was home, but this time I didn't smell it... or remember.

He picked up the mug and the other one meant for John. He walked out into the living room to see his boyfriend curled up on the couch.
"What are you doing, love?" he said, amused. He set down the mugs on the table beside the couch and sat next to him.

The next morning, I woke up early in my hotel room, fully rested and refreshed. I did a quick stretch; then got out of my bed. Getting dressed, I grabbed some casual wear from my suitcase. I was wearing a maroon colored, short sleeved shirt. On the shirt was this logo of a designer company. I chose to match it with a pair of black corduroy pants. Very casual. After that, I briefly straightened my hair in the bathroom. I've got to look at least somewhat decent when going down to the lobby to get breakfast.
