This was the best dream he could ever have hoped to have.

Only it wasn't a dream, Lee told himself as he propped himself up on one elbow and looked down at the man who was sleeping peacefully beside him. Will was no dream. He was a sweet reality.

Lee couldn't help but smile, his spirits rising at the thought. This wasn't what he had expected to find when he'd traveled across the country to DC.

He still didn't know if the clinical trials were going to work for him, but now he had even more of a reason to want them to. He wanted to live. He needed to live, to spend a lifetime with his newfound love.

He'd never had such a reason to live.

Oh, he had wanted to hold on to life before, but that had been for purely selfish reasons. He'd simply been too afraid to die, to stop existing.

But now, he had a reason to live that went beyond anything he'd ever felt before. He had to live for Will, for the long, full lives that they would have ahead of them. He couldn't simply slip away and leave his Will alone, to be broken and lonely for the rest of his life.

No. He couldn't do that to Will. Will needed him here, needed him to be strong, needed them to be together. He was going to fight for life with everything he had.

Before he'd met Will, he had wanted to live, but he had been drifting along, living in a dream world somewhere between truly living and preparing to die.

Now, everything had changed. He was in love with a wonderful man, a man who gave him the strength to live and make something out of that life. A man who gave him the courage to face the fight that lay ahead, rather than simply giving up and giving in.

He wasn't going to die. He wasn't going to give up. He was going to fight for his life every step of the way -- and he was going to win that fight.

For Will. For all the dreams that they would share.

They had so many dream in the future to make come true, dreams that he couldn't wait to get started on. So many dreams of his own that he wanted to fulfill, dreams of a love that he'd thought he would never find.

He had found that love with Will, and he wanted to enjoy every second of it. He wanted to live to a ripe old age, with that love always growing in his heart.

Yes. He was going to live. Lee took a deep breath, closing his eyes and feeling strength surging through him. This was what Will did for him. Will revitalized him, made all of his dreams come to life.

He had faith in those dreams. And in the two of them.
