Blind man of today, seeing the sun of tomorrow
"...And cut. That's a wrap." Everyone started clapping.
I reached out and hugged Gale, as if my life depended on it. It was the last day of shooting Queer as Folk forever. Since, Gale and I, were in the first scene shot for the show, they ended shooting the same way. Right after our last kiss as Brian and Justin, I couldn't get enough of him. It seems, he felt the same way. Tears starting rolling down my cheeks and met his, until I couldn't who's tears were on my face.
"It's okay, Randy. I'm here, I understand." He whispered in my ear. I nodded because I was to chocked up to say anything. Too soon it was over.
I knew I was crying. I also knew he was crying. All I wanted, I needed, was to run and wrap my arms around him. Hold him. Kiss him. Never let him go. But, I knew i couldn't, for two reasons.
First, Gale is straight. And didn't we all know it. He is also my best friend in the whole world. The fact that I think I love him and the fact that I'm gay and he's straight could ruin our friendship forever. This friendship is the only thing that gets me through life. Gale is my life.
Second, if I let myself hold him, hug him, kiss him; I'll never let him go. I'll never be able to get on with my life like he probably wants me to.
I was still crying after I finished my speech and while everyone was clearing out, I went to explore the set one last time. I was so busy saying goodbye to my life for the past five years, I didn't hear Gale follow me. He wrapped his arms around me- in what I knew was a friendly hug- and rested his head on my shoulder. I leaned into the hug anyways.
"Gale, I..." I whispered softly.
"Shh...it's okay, don't say anything. You don't have to." He answered pulling me closer and kissing my forehead. We shared that moment together, saying goodbye to our past life as lovers, Brian and Justin.
We were at Pearson International Airport in Toronto. I was leaving for NYC; Gale, Peter, Hal, Michelle, Scott and Bobbie, were going to LA; and Thea was staying here. We had already said goodbye to her; there was a lot of hugging, kissing and crying.
So here I was standing in my terminal in between Peter and Bobbie. Whispering wished of luck, everyone left to go to their terminal, except for Gale. I took a deep breathe and turned to face him, trying to hold back tears. I could see that he was doing the same.
"Rand..." He whimpered, voice cracking. And that was all it took. I ran straight into his arms hugging him for what felt like forever.
But as usual it was over to quickly.
"I'll never forget you. Promise me you'll call or text or IM me everyday. It doesn't matter if you're busy, tired, mad, or even if it's three on the morning; you'll always take at least an hour of your day for me." He said sternly looking me in the eyes.
"I promise." I said as he took my my face between his hands.
"I'll miss you so much." He said.
"...And you know I will too." I answered with a sad smile.
He lifted my head, kissed my nose, then my forehead- not caring if the world was staring- turned and walked away. But, not before looking back.
The fact that he looked back told me that I had him. Forever. Even if it wasn't romantically, he was mine as I was his.
