"Hello?" Tony spoke into his phone, not bothering to check who it was before answering.
"How long will you be gone?" Steve said from the other end of the line, skipping the greetings.
"Steve? Isn't it like... 3 in the morning over there?"
"Yes. I set the alarm so I could call you at an appropriate time."
"You- Oh my God, Steve." Tony was smiling brightly now. He felt like a dumb teenager with a crush, Steve made him feel that way and he loved it. Not that he would ever admit it.
"So? How long?"
"A couple of days, I think." Tony heard Steve groan. "I take it that you miss me?"
"You set your alarm to call me at 3am, it's no use denying it, Steve."
"I guess you're right." Steve admitted with a sigh. "I just got way too used to sleeping next to you."
"Well Cap, you should put that aside and sleep while you can, when I get back I won't let you even snooze for a while. You know, they have some quality porn channels over here, I learned a few new techniques. You think you cou- Uh. He hung up."
