~If you've got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites~

Christian Bale sat down on the small couch in his trailer. For the past 5 months, he had been on the set of the 5th Batman movie in Los AngelCaliCalifornia. With the tough-shooting schedule the crew kept, he never had time to keep up with anything in his personal life. That included his ex-boyfriend, Michael Rosenbaum. Michael himself was always busy on the set of Smallville in Toronto and Christian decided it would be best for the couple to part ways. Michael was hurt, but within the next few months, he had started up a fling with his co star, Tom Welling.
"All this thinking of you can't be healthy, love" Christian sighed as he pulled a blanket over him on the couch. No time to go to his house, he had to be in the makeup chair in 5 hours anyway. His tired eyes fluttered shut, and he was asleep in no time.

~When you make love, do you look in the mirror?
Who do you think of, does he look like me? ~

Christian's dreams were always troubled by the presence of Michael. He missed the bald headed sex symbol so much that his dreams haunted him with visions of a dominant Tom Welling, pinning his arms and toned body to a large bed. Christian always watched, tormented, from the same chair in the corner of the apartment shared by the two WB stars. He could swear that Michael sometimes moved to call out his name, or maybe he was imagining it. He could never tell for sure.

~Do you tell lies and say that it's forever?
Do you think twice, or just touch 'n' see?
Ooh babe ooh yeah
When you're alone, do you let go?
Are you wild 'n' willin' orit jit just for show?
Ooh c'mon~

Sometimes Christian's dreams would show Michael sitting alone, with a tear staining his cheek. He was always staring at a picture in his wallet. Christian knew exactly what the picture showed; he didn't have to walk near to see it. It was taken the time they had visited a beach on Miami, Michael with his arms lovingly around the brown-haired British Batman. Whenever Tom asked about the picture, Michael always answered "It's just a memory, It doesn't matter." Then wrapped his new lover up in a hug.


~I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don't wanna be there when you decide to break it
No! ~

Sometimes, Christian's dreams reminded him of the night they made love under the stars. It had been such a sad night for him; it was the night he knew he would have to tell Michael that he would be away for the next year, filming Batman. Every touch, every tender kiss broke his heart more and more. It was in that exact moment that Christian realized he truly loved his Michael. The pair snuggled in each others arms under the night's sky, breathing heavily and on the verge of sleep. "I have to tell you something, love. I have to go away to film for a year, and I won't have time to see you."
"But I can come visit you..." Michael offered.
"I saw the filming schedule yesterday. There won't be any time. Michael, I don't want you waiting for me. You deserve to be loved. You deserve someone that can be there for you heart, body, and soul. I can't give you what you deserve, love. It has to be this way. I'm sorry."
Christian would kick himself everyday for the pained expression on his lover's face at that moment.

~When I'm with you are you somewhere else?
Am I gettin' thru or do you please yourself?
When you wake up will you walk out?
It can't be love if you throw it about
Ooh babe ~

Some dreams showed him Michael in the shower, tears streaming down his face, running his hands down his torso. Christian was always in the shower with him, but invisible to his former lover.

~I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy~

His hands traveled the same path as Michael's, for he knew it well. Yet, sometimes he would forget, and lean in to place an invisible kiss on Michael's neck. Christian watched helplessly as Michael slumped against the shower wall, calling out his name, tears falling harder than before.

It was this exact dream that caused Christian Bale to wake up in his trailer, chanting "I'm so sorry! I love you, Michael" over overover again. He tried to stand up off the couch,

~Love bites, love bleeds
It's bringin' me to my knees
Love lives, love dies ~

But fell to his knees in tears of his own. He looked up to the ceiling of his trailer, and over at a framed picture. The same picture Michael carried in his wallet.
"How could I have been so stupid!?!" the question resounded from his mouth, as it always did this time of night when he awoke from his nightmares. He picked up his cell phone that was on the table by the sink and dialed the familiar number to Michael's cell phone. Ring. Ring. Ring.
"Hello? Hello? Christian, is that you? I've got caller ID, you know...and I miss you." Christian hung up. He couldn't cause Michael anymore pain than he did already. No. He wouldn't.

~If you've got love inr sir sights
Watch out, love bites
Yes it does
It will be hell~
