When they got to the top of stairs, Lee surprised Will by heading towards the bathroom rather than the bedroom. Will followed him, his brow furrowing, wondering what Lee had in mind.

Lee turned to him outside the bathroom door, raising a hand to stroke his fingers through Lee's hair. "I thought a shower might be in order." His smile flashed in the dimness of the hallway, and Will thought he could see a gleam in those blue eyes. "Together."

He gulped at Lee's words, but nodded slowly. He'd never taken a shower with another person, but maybe it would be a good way to calm his fears and make him feel less nervous.

He could touch Lee, and Lee could touch him.

It seemed like a good idea; it would be a way for him to ease into the intimacy of making love. Even if they didn't actually have sex tonight, he wanted to touch Lee; he wanted to be with this man, to give himself over to Lee in every way.

It was only his foolish fears that were holding him back, Will told himself firmly. And there was absolutely nothing to be afraid of. Not with Lee by his side.

Will's legs were shaking as he followed Lee into the bathroom; he would have to strip in front of this man, and he was already feeling shy about that. He just hoped that Lee liked what he saw; he didn't think that his body was anything special.

Lee was already pulling off his shirt, and Will admired the long, lean body that the sweatshirt had hidden. He was an incredibly handsome man, both in and out of his clothes.

Lee didn't look like someone who was suffering from cancer, Will thought as the other man bent to turn on the water in the shower and adjust it. Yes, he was lean, but he didn't look emaciated. Maybe that meant that the cancer hadn't done a lot of damage.

That thought made his spirits rise. There was so much hope for their future.

He was going to give his body to Lee tonight, even if they didn't take things all the way. He had already given his heart; there was no reason for a physical giving not to follow that.

Giving his heart had been easy. It had been like falling into eternity, falling but never hitting the ground. Will had never wondered what giving his heart to someone would feel like, because he'd never thought that he would do so. Now that he had, it seemed natural, inevitable.

How could he not have given Lee his heart? Once he had seen those blue eyes and that devastating smile, he was done for. He'd fallen, and fallen hard.

And he never wanted to get back up again.

Will slowly began to remove his shirt, turning away from Lee. He didn't want the other man to watch him undress; it felt awkward and embarrassing to be taking his clothes off.

He turned when he felt Lee's hand on his shoulder; Will looked up into those blue eyes, seeing the desire clearly written in them. Lee wanted him, that much was obvious -- and deep inside, he knew that he wanted Lee, too. He was just nervous and frightened.

Lee drew him into an embrace, wrapping his arms around Will and holding him close. "Will, there's nothing to be afraid of," he said softly, his tone reassuring. "Nothing."

Will nodded, knowing that Lee was right. It was only his mind being ridiculous and trying to hold back; Lee already had his heart. There was no reason that his body shouldn't follow.

Being skin to skin with Lee felt exhilarating; suddenly, Will wanted them to have all of their clothes off, to touch Lee's body without reservation. And he wanted Lee to touch him, too; he wanted to feel those gentle, warm hands all over him.

Stepping back slightly, he fumbled with the button and zipper on his jeans, only to hear Lee's soft laugh as the other man brushed his hands away.

"Let me do that," he said softly, his hands making quick work of the task.

Will closed his eyes as his jeans fell to the floor; he stepped out of them, realizing that Lee was pushing his own jeans down his long legs.

He couldn't say a word; he simply stood and stared. Lee was the most beautiful man he had ever seen; his body, to Will, was utter perfection. Will wanted to take Lee into his arms, to press their bodies together, to hold on to him for the rest of their lives.

Lee stepped closer to him, doing what Will would have done if he could have made himself move. He pulled Will into his arms, his lips meeting Will's in a heady, heated kiss.

Will was sure that he could feel himself melting.

The heat of Lee's embrace seared him from the inside out; he wanted nothing more than to stay here for all of eternity, locked in Lee's arms, feeling Lee's body next to his. But time had to move on; he couldn't stay in a single moment forever, no matter how pleasurable it was.

Lee's hand moved down Will's back to rest just above the curve of his ass, then lower, to cup one rounded, firm ass cheek. Will couldn't hold back a moan.

That hand on his bare skin felt .... he didn't have a word for it. This felt like nothing he had ever experienced before; he wanted that hand to touch him all over, to roam to every part of his body, spreading fire as it went, until he was engulfed in flames.

He had never wanted anything so much in his life. He had given his heart to Lee; now he was giving his body, readily, willingly, with no reservations.

He wasn't going to hold back any longer. He couldn't. There were no barriers between them now, either physical or of any other kind; there was no need for him to hold back. He could give himself unreservedly, knowing that he was loved and wanted.

Lee would accept him as he was, with no questions and no conditions.

They were going to take a shower together, explore and discover each other's bodies. And then they would go to bed together -- to perhaps discover even more. Will didn't know where this night would take them, but he knew that he was ready for it.

He wanted to give himself to Lee -- all of himself, not just his heart, but his body as well. He was throwing away his inhibitions, leaving them all behind.

Will let Lee guide him into the shower, and as he stepped inside and pulled the curtain closed behind them, he could feel his heart leap in his chest. Tonight would be the start of a whole new life for him, and he was prepared to welcome that life with open arms and an open heart.
