    Bookmarker's Notes

    They hang up without words of endearment and Cougar wonders if this is even possible, even if they both want it—to build a life together in the brief days and weeks of any year that Cougar hasn’t already obligated himself to his team.

    He thinks of Jake’s smile and Jake’s shoulder bumping his and he knows if it can be done, that he wants to try.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He was a lot like Jien that way. When things were bad, he always told himself that they would get better; and when they were good, he lived one day to the next without thinking clearly, for fear that they would fall apart. Which of course they inevitably would, because living, really living, took effort. That was something he had learned from Hakkai.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Hakkai let go. Gojyo pulled the shirt down off the line without releasing the pins first, making the line snap back with a distant twang. When he turned to go back to the house, Hakkai must have seen everything on his face, because he was suddenly right there, right against Gojyo, crushing the laundry basket between their bodies, warm hands on his cheeks, looking so deep into his eyes that Gojyo could feel it against the back of his skull.

    "I had to go to the temple this morning – for Goku's lessons. Did you forget?"

    Relief was like a kick to the gut. Fuck, sometimes he really was such an idiot; it was so easy to believe that everything would fall apart if he wasn't careful enough, easy to believe that he had to settle for the things he didn't want.

    Summary

    Jensen flirts with Cougar. A lot. To be fair, Jensen flirts with everything that moves (and anything that doesn't, if it's tech), and for the most part the flirting is both directionless and harmless.

    When he flirts with Cougar, though...
