Lying awake in the big, comfy bed, Dee gazed, entranced, at the man beside him. Ryo was sound asleep, slim body silvered by the light of the full moon shining through the window.
Dee had been watching his new lover sleep for over an hour, yet still he couldn’t seem to tear his gaze away, settle down, and get some much-needed sleep himself. He’d waited so long for this, weeks turning into months, a year, two years… Sometimes he’d started to wonder if he was wasting his time, but his own stubbornness wouldn’t let him give up his pursuit of the man who’d stolen his heart.
Ryo snuffled in his sleep, shifting slightly, a small frown creasing his forehead as dark eyes opened to peer sleepily at Dee in the moonlight.
“Dee? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, babe; nothing at all. Everything’s perfect. Go back to sleep.”
“Mmmm. You should sleep too.” Ryo’s eyes slid closed again and Dee’s smile widened.
“I will in a bit.”
“Sweet dreams, baby.”
He’d never given much thought to karma, but watching Ryo drift off to sleep again, Dee decided he must have done something very good in a past life to deserve this.
