Summary: Soubi explains the depth of his feelings for Ritsuka.

Disclaimer: I don't own Loveless or "More than you'll ever know" by Travis Tritt. I made up the book title mentioned, but if there is such a book, I own no rites to it.

Ritsuka lay on Soubi's bed reading the three hundred twenty one page book "Theories on memory". Soubi sat at his desk, appearing to work on a sketch.

It was a beautiful autumn day and leaves of different hues danced outside the window. Though an art student who would normally appreciate such a sight, the fighter did not pay attention to anything but his sacrifice.

Out of the silence his velvety voice spoke *"Ritsuka I know living with me is not always easy". The boy turned to face him. "Soubi?" he inquired, though he heard what he said never missing a word spoken by the man.

Soubi had a discontented expression on his handsome face as he explained further. *"Due to my teachings, I dam up emotions some may just let flow, but when you're not by my side I feel a part of me has died. We belong together. We are destined for each other."

"You've said this before Soubi, I know", Ritsuka gently replied. No matter how many times he heard them the words brought a flutter to his chest.

*"I love you more than you'll ever know Ritsuka, more than life, more than I ever loved before. No one compares to you."

"Soubi I'm not going anywhere." His sacrifice assured with a smile then turned back to his book. The font on the page meant nothing at the moment. Soubi was all he could focus on.

*It's beyond words; I couldn't want you moreā€¦

A/N: I notice it may seem like a bit of a character exchange, because Ritsuka is comforting Soubi, but I think it flows.
