Reaching out his hand, he gently carressed the other man's cheek, and he gazed at him like he never had before. Those soft, gentle eyes were only looking into his. Nothing else mattered in that moment. He wanted him to know what this feeling was that made his heart race a million miles per second. His slender fingers slid through that grayish hair, presenting their warmth upon the bare skin. However, it wasn't the touch or the way he looked into his eyes that had the other man on the verge of tears, but--
Just barely the corners of his lips curved. So small yet so sweet. And, what escaped those lips was even sweeter.
"I love you."
And, in that moment, it was as if nothing could ever separate the two.
The sensation, the warmth, from one single human being couldn't possibly be this soothing--this addicting. Yet, even the unimaginable can happen. Even the sweetest of moments were possible, and all it took was the love of a pure heart. As simple as it was, as simple as what every day was, it all didn't matter as long as those simple days were always spent together. And, if one day that could reach his heart, then maybe--just maybe it wouldn't be too much to ask.
'Can I continue my days like this with you?'
