Sidney spends nearly every spare moment of the next month with Geno but that’s not enough to ease the sting as they lay tangled together the night before Geno will leave for Pittsburgh. They don’t have a lot of words—they’ve both said them all so many times—so they lay together, trading soft kisses, slow touches; soaking up as much of each other as they can one last time.
Sidney whines when Geno starts to pull away, tries to pull him back in. Geno winks at him. “Just for a second, Sid. Have present for you.”
