Kendall stepped out of the shower and wrapped a towel around his waist. He dried his hair quickly with another towel and stopped when he heard James talking to Logan.

"James this doesn't change our relationship. You are who you are" Logan says sympathetically.

"Thank you so much, Logie. Now it's just a matter of telling Kendall, I don't know how I'm ever going to work up the courage to do that" James says sadly.

"If he's really your friend, he'll understand, James. He's known you longer than I have, so he should understand" Logan says, his tone full of understanding. James sighed.

"I know…I just…It could make me lose him" James says almost inaudibly.

"He'll understand, James" Logan says before getting up and leaving James. James sighed and wrapped his arms around his knees before seeing Kendall walk out. He watched as Kendall sat down next to him, never taking his eyes off of James.

"What do you need to tell me?" he asks seriously, his gaze fixated on James. James's eyes widened.

"You heard that?" he asks worriedly. Kendall nodded.

"Tell me" he says, watching as James looked away.

"I can't" James says softly, tears threatening to spill over. Kendall opened his mouth to say something, but was interrupted by a knock at the door. He got up and answered it and came face-to-face with Jo.

"Um…ready to go?" she asks, confused, as she looked down at Kendall's towel. Kendall blushed and ran to his room to get ready. Jo walked in and nodded at James, who nodded his acknowledgement back. The two sat there in an awkward, and very pregnant, silence until Kendall emerged again.

"alright then. James…we're going out. I should be back around 10 or 11" Kendall says cheerily, clapping his hands together.

"Have fun…Kendy" he says, adding the nickname softly. Kendall nodded and looked down at him, about to say something, before being dragged off by Jo. James watched as the door to the apartment closed and watched the spot where Kendall had been standing. James had been so captivated at that moment. James let a few tears cascade down his cheeks as he curled up with a pillow.

When Kendall came home, he walked in and saw James curled up. He raised an eyebrow, then smiled and picked him up, carrying him into their room. James immediately curled into his touch, nuzzling into his chest. Kendall smiled and lay James down on his bed. James grabbed onto Kendall's wrist and would not let go. He cuddled Kendall's arm, which caused Kendall to fall on James's bed next to him. Kendall blushed and tried to pull his arm out of James's grasp, but to no avail. He sighed and tried to get comfortable. James held onto him as he began mumbling in his sleep.

"mmm…Kendy…mm…no! My Kendy! He's mine!" he says softly, causing Kendall to raise an eyebrow. Kendall watched him, then gently shook him.

"James…wake up. Come on Jamey…" he says, shaking him softly. James cringed and slowly fluttered his eyes open. He blinked a few more times before blushing deeply and letting go of Kendall's wrist.

"Oh God…Kendall…I'm…I'm sorry" he says, very embarrassed. He turned on his side away from Kendall. Kendall wrapped an arm around James and made him turn over again.

"We need to talk James…" Kendall says, looking deeply into James's brown eyes. James felt his heart skip a beat. He sighed, then took a deep breath.

"Kendalli'''" James says in one breath, panting and regaining his breath. Kendall blinked.

"Um…what?" Kendall asks, looking at James, who blushed and looked away.

"I said I've been in love with you for the past three years I've just been to afraid to tell you because I don't want to jeopardize our friendship" James says softly, listening to his heart beat. Kendall thought for a moment, then leaned forward and kissed James's forehead.

"You know how to flatter a man, Jamey" he says, smiling at him. James smiled back.

"What does this mean, Kendy?" James asks curiously, looking up at him. Kendall's smile faded.

"Well, I still have Jo. I'm so flattered you like me James…but nothing can happen between us right now" Kendall says, stroking James's cheek.

"Right now? Is there hope for later?" James asks, eyes bright. Kendall chuckled.

"I'm saying not to rule out all possibilities of us. You never know what could happen" Kendall says, kissing James's cheek before getting under the covers and falling asleep. James held his cheek where it had been kissed and smiled, falling into a deep, Kendall-filled sleep.
