At the Park
A full year after 10 U.S.C. §654 had finally been killed, John still had trouble believing he could kiss another man in public without destroying his career.
Rodney seemed content with nothing more overt than bumping elbows as they walked, talked, ate and sat together, but John wanted to give him more, knew he deserved more, for sticking by him and struggling to remain discreet all these years.
They were at the park watching Madison, Jacob and little Austin when John finally screwed his courage to the sticking place and leaned in for a feather-light kiss.
Rodney's smile was incandescent.
