Author’s Note: Takes place during episode 202. Justin’s POV.
“Like the first time?” he asks.
I barely manage to give him an answer. But he doesn’t need a vocal confirmation, my Brian. He doesn’t give a shit what others say. I used to wonder if he’s telepathic, because he can see behind all the crap, lies, and pretence– and hunt down the truth, just like that. It makes some people hate him so much; because he tells them the truth, whether or not they want to hear it.
Usually they don’t.
Maybe that’s why I trust him so much, especially now as I feel more vulnerable than ever. My Brian doesn’t put up with bullshit, nor does he offer any.
There it was again. Since when have I dared to think of him like that? On that first night we were together? Yeah, because back then I didn’t know him, and thought he loved me.
Today… Well, the illusion of ‘my Brian’ is the only thing that makes these two nights similar. Because even if he promised to make love to me like he did back then, he isn’t.
He’s gentler. Slower. Loving to a point where it’s almost ridiculous.
Perhaps it’s real now.
Maybe now he does love me.
