"I found you, I love you, and tonight I claim you as my own. As ours — Indi's and mine — as the love of my life." Jase said, his voice strong conviction high.
"How long have you imagined this night?" Jase asked, convinced it wasn't only him that had shouted for Leo as his cum hit the shower wall, at home alone.
"So long, Jase, so fucking long."
Full of passion, Jase was rooted to the floor, not convinced he could move if he wanted to, his gaze raking down Leo's naked body, and yet it was his eyes he was gazing at.
"Your mind is what I fell in love with first, your ability to exist in this world feeling all you do. Sensory overload causes your meltdowns — they're a part of you. Those are what you fear the most. Those are what I hoped for each month, as you let me into your world, to love you. And each time, it became too much. I loved you for your ability to feel more than I could."READ MORE
For years, Leo hated that he'd felt things so many people never experienced, how he'd pick up subtle energy shifts. However, these caused meltdowns and depression — it was also these that had contributed to him — becoming the best in his field.
Leo's stoicism with many people wasn't shown with Jase or Indi. They saw him for him beyond what he displayed to the world. Leo's quiet introspection, the way he moved away from sensory overloads without complaint. The tranquillity, and peace he radiated, was the perfect balance of each of them. Jase and Indi loved and cherished Leo.
Indi's C-PTSD had eased in the months they'd been together, convinced it was because of Leo's ability to feel energy shifts — he noticed anxiety forming with Indi — often before Angel had.
As Indi had said so many times before, Leo took away the anxiety and quietened his mind.
A world without each of his men wouldn't be a world Jase wanted to exist in.
Warm lips on Jase took him out of his reverie, the moan the want, the energy between them both, high tonight.
"I can't, Jase, make love to me — then fuck me."
Jase nodded. Lube was placed into his hand, as disconnected as he felt — he felt it all.
With a deep breath, Jase pulled back, sat back on his knees, assessing the man in front of him. A slow smile graced his lips.
Loving Jase had been easy. Learning to love himself in the four and a half months he'd been with Jase and Indi had been fun. Only made possible by the man in his arms.COLLAPSE
