Early morning sunlight streamed through a window. It's rays fell upon the two sleeping men who embraced, naked in their slumber.
Frank, gradually opened his eyes. His caring hand glanced down the strong arm of Brian, who lay beneath him. The big man hadn't seemed so strong last night, but a little fragile amid troubled emotions.
Brian awoke, smiling. He caressed and drew Frank's leg up. “Thanks for being there last night,” he whispered. “I was so upset. You took away the pain.” He kissed him.
“I've loved you for the longest time,” Frank replied. “I'll always be there.”
