A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Despite his determination to live as a straight man, Ryo had spent his entire adult life feeling like an alien who didn’t fit into the role he was trying to play. He dated women he liked, but never felt the attraction and desire other guys talked about, so he avoided sex whenever possible.
With Dee, it’s different. The attraction and desire are there, and Ryo know he fits with this man in ways he never did with any woman, but he still feels awkward about sex.
Maybe it’s because of his less than inspiring experiences in the past, or because he forced himself to repress his desires for so long; he doesn’t know. In some ways it doesn’t matter why, because the only important thing is that now he’s found someone he trusts completely, who is patient and perfectly willing to teach him what he needs to know and help him come to terms with his sexuality.
Meeting Dee was the best thing to ever happen to him, and Ryo is sure that in time he’ll become comfortable enough with his body, and with who he is, to be able to love Dee in all the ways they both want.
