The reason is that they are two men, and nothing of philosophical allegiance nor pragmatic concerns hung in the balance; there is no significance to it. Enjolras has not devoted a second thought to it. He would be bemused that Grantaire is doing so, if he realized.

"Combeferre, I think, would disagree."

There's a faint humor to the words. And yet --

And yet it's the first time he's said Combeferre's name aloud in weeks. He hadn't entirely realized, until the word was in his mouth. That awareness coils in his stomach like an illness; it's wrong, it's awful. Their friends aren't here, no one here knows them, no one here can share their smiles or praise their names. Enjolras has not said any of his friends' names in speaking to or about them in longer than he can count.

At least he can do so with Grantaire. However little his conversation ever signifies, however the others' absence hurts like a missing limb -- there is, at least, that.
