Chemical ~ A HalSin drabble
No matter how amicably their meetings may start, Hal always found himself arguing with Sinestro over something. Diplomacy, defense and now power. They’d fallen onto the topic of the emotional spectrum only to debate which each man considered to be stronger. Sinestro was adamant that fear ruled all for it was the fear of a thing that drove any person to obeisance. Hal’s answer surprised Sinestro. Instead of his own corps’ power of will, he chose love.
"Love?" Sinestro scoffed. "Love is just a chemical reaction the brain artificially produces."
"Naturally, not artificially," Hal shook his head. "Maybe you can explain the feeling away with science but that doesn’t diminish the feeling. Hell, Sin, every emotion is a chemical reaction, but you know the thing about chemical reactions? They need triggers."
Hal floated over to the Korugarian and stopped just inches from him. He could feel the heat of Sinestro’s body seep through both of their uniforms. Risking a provoked attack, he lifted one hand to graze a gloved fingertip down crimson skin.
"Am I initiating a response?" He whispered, his lips close to Sinestro’s.
Sinestro refused to concede, he would never believe that love could ever be strong enough to win wars or move mountains. However, there was no denying the small fluttered pulse within his chest that Jordan’s light touch aroused. Perhaps love was incapable of great things but he accepted that there might be a chance that whatever it was between him and the Green Lantern could be.
