"Todd, I love you." Neil states.

Todd can't be hearing Neil correctly. He can't be. Todd has dreamed of this, but there's no way this is actually happening. It just can't be. This all has to be some big joke or something. This isn't happening because it is impossible for Neil to love Todd.

"Well, that's impossible." Todd say, because his only other option is saying 'I love you too' and tackle hugging Neil.

"Bullshit. Nothing's impossible. Especially not this. Why would you say that?"

"Because there's no way someone like you could ever love someone like me." Todd says, still slightly convinced that he's somehow fallen into some weird dreamland.

"You've got to stop being so hard on yourself Todd." Neil says. "Because I do love you, I do. I love you, I love you, I love you."

"I…I love you too." Todd says, thinking that since everything else is out of whack today he might as well do something he wouldn't normally let himself do.

A smile spreads across Neil's face and Todd smiles back. Neil places a hand on Todd's cheek, leans in and brushes his lips over Todd's in a ghost of a kiss. And Todd finally realizes that maybe this is all for real, that Neil really does love him. So he grabs Neil's face and kisses him like he's been dreaming about for months.
