“Don’t stop.” Scotty whispers and Kevin doesn’t plan to. He watches Scotty close his eyes and surrender and he let’s go of his own hold. Feeling Scotty’s even breathing against his skin, makes Kevin swallow away the lump in his throat. Anyone other than Scotty would have walked away long ago. But Scotty will still hold him at night, when he cries. Scotty waits patiently for Kevin to be ready, even though Kevin himself is not sure if he ever will be. He kisses Scotty, realizing once again, just how lucky he is, to have this man by his side.
