Jon wasn’t naive. Not that naive. Tim kneeling in a room with the curtains drawn and somebody stroking his hair, Tim tilting sidelong to nuzzle into their hip, he could read between the lines of that well enough. He was unlikely to learn anything of practical use watching this; it was (of course) a gross invasion of privacy, something he oughtn’t see, something he didn’t need to know. He didn't leave.
Jon follows Tim home one night. He gets more of a show than he bargained for.

Sometimes, though. Sometimes the stars aligned and they made it back to Tim’s house together, to order takeaway and watch films and bicker. Jon had spent the first few weeks alternating between the bed and the sofa, still anxious about the idea of intruding, of breaking into the cosy circle that Tim and Martin made together. It was fragile, he seemed to think, like an egg-shell. Like a soap bubble.
A look into those "getting-to-know-you" days. Beds, and the things that happen in them.
