Paul was sitting at his desk trying to fit his new song together. He was writing a song in the hopes to serenade his little drummer but the words weren't coming out the way he wanted them. And he kept thinking about Brian and Ringo both being home alone by themselves.
Last night he came home to see both his boyfriend and manager sleeping on the couch under some heavy blankets. If it hadn't been for John, he would've done something rash like yell at Brian and accuse him for being sneaky. John said that Ringo had been cooped up in his room all week and didn't want to miss the John Wayne marathon.
Just then Paul noticed that the TV was on and John Wayne was shooting up a storm.
He just didn't know what to do about his jealousy towards Brian. Brian was taking care of Ringo more than he was. Even though the new contract said that he should and Paul being the second Lieutenant for Ringo Care, he couldn't shake the feeling that Ringo would be better off with Brian.
Before he won Ringo over from Brian, Paul was keen to observe everything he could about the two of them. He knew they had a lot in common like both tending to fall into depressions and both easily get lonely and both were teasing targets for John to pick on.
When the other two had fallen in love with Ringo Paul knew he had some tough competition. John could make Ringo laugh, George was his best friend but Paul was the only one who wasn't shy to sleep and cuddle with Ringo in the same bed in their early days.
He soon noted that Ringo soon started to arrive late at work sometimes so he investigated and followed him one morning. He discovered that Ringo started going to Brian for some comfort and to hide from his band mates. After that Ringo had been late for work every morning, going over to Brian's office for some chat time.
Then when Brian came in to oversee the recordings Paul noticed that Brian started looking at Ringo with a dreamy look on his face. A week after that, he went over to Brian's office for a little advice on how to win Ringo's heart but overheard Brian confess his love to Ringo instead.
Now, handling a comedian and a best friend was one thing, but someone who could understand Ringo's problems was definitely tough competition. Brian could understand Ringo's problems very easily because he's had the same experiences.
Paul could understand why Brian woud fall in love too. Ringo was an appreciative guy. He would return favors and give presents as Thank Yous and Brian was a hard working guy. Ringo showed a lot of appreciation to him.
Putting himself in Brian's shoes the best he could, Paul could really understand why he would fall in love with Ringo. Ringo probably made him feel worthwhile. Ringo would be his very reason to go to work every day and his reason to come home every night.
All the boys knew Brian was looking for someone to love and to be well loved in return. He knows from experience that Ringo was full of love and can give the kind of love that would last forever.
Paul looked down at his song and scanned the words. They weren't the words of undying love, they were words of jealousy and questioning. He crumpled up the paper and tossed it aside and tried working on another one but his thoughts kept interrupting him.
"Hey Paulie, whatcha doing?" Ringo asked. "Working on a song." Paul answered and set down his pen to pull Ringo down on his lap.
"Ringo, I’ve been thinking." he said. "I’m very jealous of Brian." "Paul, I’ve told you--" "Hold on, hold on, I’m not done." Paul said, putting a finger over Ringo’s lips. "I’m jealous but I can see why he loves you so much and I think you should return it."
