“I’m not going to lie anymore. It took me 14 years to figure it out. Happiness earned through deceit always come to an end. Even if you hide out of fear or turn a blind eye because you’re appalled… forgetting the truth doesn’t make it go away". - “I realized that you have to face it head on. No matter how painful it may be… in the end, you still have to face it. What other choice do you have?”
A moment passes between them, smiling
and flushed, lingering bubbles of laughter fluttering between them.
Victor’s smile softens and he moves a breath closer, a natural step,
and Yuuri can’t help the way his eyes flick down to Victor’s
unending, heart shaped smile. His cheeks burn and he can feel
Victor’s eyes on him before he meets that piercing gaze again.
Yuuri’s heart stutters.
