"That was delicious." Lee put down his fork and smiled at Will across the kitchen table, his blue eyes seeming to light up as he spoke. "My appetite hasn't been that good for a while. But I don't think it's just the food, even though I love Chinese. It's the company."

That smile was so enthusiastic, so ingratiating. Will wanted to fall into the brightness of it, bask in the light of Lee's eyes. He wanted to lose himself in this man.

They had talked so much during dinner, and found out so much about each other. In retrospect, Will was glad that they'd chosen to drive into town and get food from the Chinese place he always ordered from. He didn't want to sit in a restaurant with other people around.

No, he wanted Lee all to himself.

He wanted to keep this man here, in his home, for the rest of their lives. He wanted to spend an entire lifetime loving Lee, being with him -- no, several lifetimes. He wanted to love Lee for an eternity, to hold him close forever.

That wasn't going to be possible, and he knew it. Lee was dying. He had cancer. But .... cancer wasn't fatal. Not always .A lot of people out there were cancer survivors; Lee could be one of them. This treatment he was taking would work.

And they would live happily ever after.

Will wanted to believe that. He had to believe it. He couldn't believe that fate would be so cruel as to take Lee away from him. Fate would smile on them, and give them the chance for a life together. It had to. For once, things had to go his way.

He couldn't tear his gaze away from Lee; he had never had anyone look at him so intensely, with such .... desire in their eyes.

It was intoxicating, exhilarating. And at the same time, it ws almost frightening. It was obvious that Lee wanted him -- and yes, he wanted Lee, too. But he'd never been intimate with anyone before. Not in the way that Lee obviously wanted them to be.

How was he going to admit that fact? It was embarrassing.

"You've never been with anybody before, have you, Will?" Lee asked, his voice very soft. He was regarding Will with a soft smile on his lips, the desire still in those blue eyes. Even though he had obviously guessed Will's secret, it didn't seem to change his feelings.

"H-how did you know?" Will stammered, then looked down with a wry smile. "I guess it's pretty obvious, isn't it?" He sighed softly, nodding. "Yeah, I'm a virgin. It's embarrassing to admit that. I'm nearly thirty years old, and I've never been with anybody."

"Will, it's not a crime," Lee said softly. "I think it's sweet."

"So it doesn't bother you?" Will asked, feeling greatly daring. He wanted Lee to know that he was indeed interested -- but he knew that he wasn't ready for them to be completely intimate tonight. He was still a little apprehensive, still holding back.

They needed to get to know each other a little more, he told himself. To .... well, to explore each other before they gave themselves completely.

"Not at all," Lee told him, reaching across the table to take Will's hand in his and lace their fingers together. "Though I'll be honest and say that I don't want to wait for long. I understand that you're not ready right now, but I want you, Will. And not just for a night."

"I want you forever," Will whispered, the words coming out of nowhere.

And he did. He wanted a lifetime with Lee, an eternity with him. He wanted the two of them to grow old together; he wanted to be able to turn over in bed and see this man's smile every morning for the rest of his life, until they were old and grey.

Lee nodded, the smile still curving his lips. Those lips were beautiful, Will realized. So full and pink and inviting .... All he wanted to do was kiss those lips, to feel them open beneath his own, to taste Lee's mouth and know what it felt like to be kissed by him.

"Kiss me," he whispered, the words tumbling out before he could stop them.

"Gladly," Lee answered, getting to his feet and moving around the table to Will's chair. He drew the other man to his feet, the intensity of his blue eyes making Will's heart skip a few beats. This was it, then. This was the first moment of their time together.

It started here and now. It would be intense, and passionate, and maybe even a little scary. But Will was ready for all of that. More than ready.

Lee moved toward Will, pulling him into his arms. Will wrapped his arms around Lee's waist, leaning into him, raising his face and closing his eyes. When their lips met, he could swear that he heard rockets and saw stars -- and was lifted towards the heavens.
