‘“You have always been, well, incredibly accepting, and patient, and I have no doubt that you would try to make my inadequacies work for you in every capacity, but that is the trouble, my dear.”
The word ‘dear’ stirs something nostalgic and sweet inside Patton. He lifts Logan’s hand to his mouth and kisses it again, just because he can.
“What are you afraid of?” he murmurs against them.
Patton looks up, wondering. Logan’s eyes are closed.’
It’s here at last, the happy ending. Sorry for the small delay, I only just got done with my midterms and had to put the editing of this chapter on hold. Then I realised the chapter was kind of trash so I had to rewrite about half of it, but anyway - here you go. Tag list and more at the end, thanks so much for a great response, and I hope you enjoy!
