Jim awoke about 11:00 that night after making love twice with Blair and saw the moon shining brightly through the skylight. He pulled Blair closer to him and tightened his arms around him and said, “Blair, wake up. It’s time to open your eyes and look at the moon.”
Blair opened them immediately and said, “Oh man, this is better than I ever dreamed it would be. Thank you for waking me up and sharing this with you.”
“Well, it’s not like you won’t see it again, you’re going to be up here every night, right?” Jim was unexpectedly anxious.
“Oh yeah, I plan on being up here for the rest of my life, Jim. Don’t worry about that. No, I just meant tonight. This is our first night for everything and I’m glad we got to see the moon together too.”
“So am I, Blair and I’m glad that we decided to move past friendship because this is so much better.”
“I never would have figured you for a sweet talker or a cuddler.” Blair teased.
“Well, you give me reason. I never did much before, but now I seem to care more.” Jim kissed him and then lay back to watch the moon some more.
“Will we tell anyone about us?” Blair asked.
“As soon as you feel like you want to out us to our friends, we can. But I’d rather keep things quiet at the station. Everything will work out just perfect.” Jim started breathing deeper and Blair could feel him falling asleep.
“I love you so much, Jim. You’ll never know how much you mean to me.”
“I feel the same way Chief. I’m exhausted, can we talk more in the morning?”
“Yes, our day two is coming up.” Blair snuggled into Jim’s waiting arms and they were both sound to sleep within moments.
The moon was shining off the men and seemed to be just for them. Maybe it was.
