A/N: Happy Birthday, LyricalKris! I hope you have a wonderful day.
Thanks to SorceressCirce for beta’ing.

I’ve tried so hard to keep my distance, to be a good friend and not press him to do anything when he’s not certain what he wants to do or how he feels.

But right now, he’s making it awfully fucking hard – pun intended.

He’s been distant for days now, and I figure it’s cool. Give him space to figure himself out.

Today, though, he’s been making comments. Glancing my way when he thinks I’m not looking.

Right now, it’s all I can do not to press against him – not to kiss him senseless.

“What’s stopping you?” he whispers.
