"You've always been there for me. You're the reason I'm alive."

These words rang in my ears as I was looking into this amazingly blue eyes. This could not be happening.

But it did. Here he was, the only person besides my family that I have grown to love.

"Your point being?" No, I could not let myslef get hurt again. Love and relationships only make a person vulnerable, and I could not, would not lose you too.

"If you leave, I'll die." There, he said it.

"Stop being childish," Tom made a stern face in vain hopes of stopping him from... from what? "You don't need me to protect you anymore, you can do it on your own. I'm not needed here."

"I need you," Kyle's voice was quiet and serious. "I need you to love me."

That was not something Tom expected. Neither were the soft lips which suddenly pressed to his own and a gentle hand on his cheek. Kyle smiled feeling the stubble under his fingers. His eyes fluttered closed as he felt Tom deepen the kiss.

I love you. I won't let you go.
