Will glanced in the rear-view mirror to be sure that Lee's car was still following his, though he didn't know why he was worried. Lee had been there all the way from DC; it wasn't as though he was suddenly going to melt away, or disappear like he'd never existed.

It seemed impossible that he'd actually met someone -- especially someone who seemed as perfect as Lee was . He could hardly believe that he'd been so lucky.

Well, all right, so Lee wasn't perfect. He had cancer. But that wasn't something that Will was going to let get in the way of their developing relationship. Cancer could be beaten. Millions of people had survived. Lee could be one of them.

He wasn't going to give up. And he wouldn't let Lee give up, either.

He wanted to spend the rest of his life looking into those blue eyes; he wanted Lee to have a long and happy life with him. He wanted them to grow old together, to be able to look back on lives full of shared memories and magical moments.

They would do that, Will told himself firmly. They would be together for all of their lives, and beyond. Lee would beat this cancer, and their lives would go on.

Maybe it was weird for him to have fallen so quickly for a man he'd barely met, a man he knew next to nothing about. Some people would say that it wasn't the best idea for him to have invited Lee to stay in his house while he was participating in the clinical trial.

But in his heart, Will knew that he'd done the right thing.

He couldn't have said why, but something told him that Lee was going to be special in his life. He couldn't help feeling that he had found the person he had been searching for all of his life, the person who would bring him out of his self-imposed isolation and into the light.

Just looking into Lee's blue eyes made him feel .... alive. More so than he ever had. He felt as if he was on top of the world, as if he could achieve anything.

Will never wanted that feeling to end. He wanted to have Lee by his side for the rest of his life, sharing the world with him, knowing that he had someone who loved him -- and who he loved in return. That was really all he'd ever wanted.

His eyes widened as he realized just what he'd been thinking.

Love? When had he begun to think in those terms? He and Lee had just met; love didn't enter into the equation of their lives yet. He couldn't have fallen in love so quickly with someone he hardly knew; that was crazy. It was just infatuation, not love.

No, it was more than that. What he felt for Lee was something that reached deep into his soul, something that he felt in his heart. Maybe it wasn't love -- not yet, anyway -- but he was sure that it was going to grow and develop, and that it would do so very quickly.

He was already falling in love with Lee. He might as well admit it.

Those eyes had held him in thrall from the first moment he'd sat down and looked across the table at Lee. Those eyes had seen so much that Will would never see; Lee knew the kind of suffering that most people would never have to experience.

When Will looked into those eyes, he could swear that they could see into forever, into the future that the two of them could have together.

The first time he had looked into those eyes, he'd seen forever, too. He had seen the two of them far into their future, holding hands, laughing together, as much in love as they had been when they had first started. He wanted to believe that could happen.

He wanted to spend forever with this man.

Would that be possible? The only way to find out was for the two of them to keep heading down the path they'd already started to take. He was more than willing to follow that path, to see where it would lead them. And he was sure that Lee was, as well.

He turned the ignition off, opening the door and turning to wait for Lee. His heart skipped a beat at the thought that this man would, for all intents and purposes, be living here.

Okay, so Lee was more or less a stranger to him. But there was that pull of attraction that he couldn't deny; he wouldn't have been able to walk away from Lee, or to let him be so far away in a hotel when they could be sharing his living space.

Maybe it was a little crazy. But it was what he wanted.

"Nice place you have here," Lee said with a smile. "You live here by yourself? Don't you get lonely?" He tilted his head to the side, a slight frown between his brows. "I kind of sensed that you're a loner -- like me -- but everybody needs company once in a while."

"Oh, I have company," Will told him with a grin. "Of the canine variety. Come inside and meet them. They'll have to get used to you being around."

As he looked into the depths of those eyes again, he could see a sadness lurking there, one that he wanted to banish for good. He wanted those eyes to see into forever -- and to keep him, and the future they could share together, firmly in their sights.
