Ryo gazed at Dee, peacefully sleeping on the far side of the bed.
‘I wonder if Dee likes guys…’
He felt something stir inside him, something he refused to acknowledge, and ruthlessly pushed it back down.
‘No, I can’t afford to think like that, especially not now. What on earth possessed me to let him spend the night? So stupid.’
Lying back against his pillow, he willed sleep to come.
A tiny voice in the back of his mind sneered, ‘you’re a fake and a coward. Would it be so terrible to admit that you’re gay?’
He just didn’t know.
