A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Drake still found it hard to believe. He and JJ had spent years as partners and close friends, had their good times and bad, their angry fights and good-natured arguments, and they’d been each other’s shoulder to lean on through it all.
But how had they got from there to where they were now?
Six months ago today, he’d suddenly found himself looking at JJ in a completely different way, not just as a friend but as a very attractive man, warm, witty and caring, and his heart had skipped a beat. All because of an impulsive kiss.
“What’re you thinking about, Drakey?” JJ’s voice broke into Drake’s thoughts and he turned to smile at his boyfriend.
“It’s six months today since you kissed me up on the roof; I was just thinking how far we’ve come since that day. I had no idea where that kiss would lead.”
“Any regrets?” JJ asked, sounding uncharacteristically hesitant.
“Just one. I wish I hadn’t wasted so much time dating all the wrong people when the right one was in front of me the whole time.”
How they’d got here wasn’t important; all that mattered was that they had.
“I love you, JJ.”
