Looking down at Dee’s sleeping face, Ryo desperately wanted to reach out and touch him, just for a moment. Brush that thick, black hair back from his forehead, smooth and unlined in slumber, perhaps trace the curve of Dee’s lips with the ball of his thumb, or glide his fingertips across Dee’s cheekbone. He was so breathtakingly beautiful.
Instead, he drew back from the bed; he didn’t want Dee to wake, because if he did, Ryo wasn’t sure he’d be able to leave, and he needed to. He had so much to think about now.
He hoped Dee would understand.
