And he’s so mad because of course the one person he really cares about would be someone who couldn’t be seduced by his charms. And maybe at the end of their visit he lets it slip, that he’s enjoyed this and wouldnt mind a date or too. And he can feel Bones freeze beside him and he’s ready for the gentle let down but it still hurts - but it doesn’t happen. Bones pulls him around to look at him and Jim could get lost in those eyes. “Jim, I need you to be serious do you mean that?” and Jim nods, but he’s also unsure about what’s happening and kind of hopeful that this might go his way, “because I’ve been in love with you for a real long time kid,” and Jim’s never seen him look so goddamned happy before - that’s why he never dated and Jim feels so stupid for not noticing but also elated because he has him now, and he kisses Bones on the mouth and Jim kisses right back. And Bones has never been so excited because he never thought Jim would feel that way, at least never seriously. And spending a week with him cosying up to him, pretending to be his husband only made it more apparent to Bones what he wanted, and what he couldn’t have. And to have the chance now was something he never considered, but holding Jim in his arms just feels so right, and his lips against his are even better.
I really want to kiss you rn
