    Summary

    "Can't I just sit with them a little while?" Duen asks. "Is that wrong? They don't have anyone, P'Thara." No one except each other, and right now they don't even have that for comfort, either. There are tears in his eyes, Duen realizes when his vision blurs, and he lifts a hand to scrub them away before they can fall. "I didn’t touch them very much," he insists, because it dawns upon him that Thara probably thinks he's breaking some kind of code of ethics. "I know that I can't let them imprint on my scent. I know. But I couldn't . . ."

    They're alone. They're alone.

    And knowing that is its own kind of agony, clawing at his insides until he feels like it will tear him apart from the inside out.

    Thara sets a hand on his shoulder, a thumb rubbing across Duen’s clavicle for a moment before he speaks. "I'm just worried that you're going to get your heart broken, nong," he whispers.

    Honestly, Duen thinks bleakly, he’s terrified of that too. "I'll be careful," he promises, every syllable of it thick on his tongue with the weight of silver.

    Summary

    Duen knows why it’s like this, why it will continue to be so for a few more years, but that doesn’t make it hurt any less.

    Time waits for no one, and Duen swallows back a wave of grief as it sinks in all over again just how much he’ll end up missing. He was lucky to have been there the first time Bee walked, blessed to be in the room when she’d babbled out, “Da!” and watched Bohn openly weep. By the time Duen’s graduated, when he finally plans to propose to Bohn, she’ll be almost five.

    His breath catches in his chest at the thought, but he pushes down against it.

    He has enough for now; a partner who loves him, a son who genuinely enjoys his company and advice, and a daughter he adores. It’s enough.

    Summary

    When silence finally fills the air, punctuated only by their soft and simultaneous inhales and exhales, he voices the question Bohn has been dreading. “What do you want to do?”

    They’ve talked about it before, the fact that Bohn hadn’t been given a choice the last time. Even if he had he would have gone through with it, but the lack of options had always made him sick, left him cold. It’s the same now, and he knows that Duen already knows that, too. Guilt, though, tastes like bile on his tongue anyways. Duen’s still in school, has three years of interning at the clinic left ahead of him. They’d had a plan, and this wasn’t it.
