THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US

From the moment they met more than ten years ago, Klaus had been drawn to Taki like metal filings to a magnet.

For love he had forsake his country, his family, everything. And in doing so found only cold indifference.

How could his flower ignore him now? Frustrated rage festered inside until something snapped. His passions overwhelmed him and in trying to love Taki, he hurt him.

Now, Klaus held Taki's limp, unresisting form in his arms. He had wanted to be closer to him, but he had never felt the distance between them as keenly as he did now.

THE END

A/N: This is my first attempt at writing for this series. I hope to improve with time.
