They share their first kiss a week before Christmas. Edwin kissed Lucas before pulling away, expressing his regret and confusion. Lucas doesn't believe it was a mistake, remaining adamant that Ed feels the same and is just unwilling to accept his sexuality.
After Ed claims he's in love with Wiet on NYE, Lucas confronts him at home. In a misguided attempt to evoke the truth of his feelings, Lucas kisses him. Ed pushes him away in anger claiming he doesn't want him, but Lucas felt something real in both kisses. Ed forces him to leave, conveying cruel words in the heat of the moment. Lucas is deeply hurt. Ed slams the door in his face.
They haven't spoken in a week. Ed can't handle being close to Lucas and Lucas doesn't want salt rubbed in his wounds. But Ed's intense reaction (negative though it was) suggests it must be emanating from a place of raw, undeniable emotion. As Lucas makes changes in his life—quitting his job to invest his recent inheritance with his friend Bing for a new club—he decides to makeover his own living space—his bedroom. He goes about revamping his sleeping quarters, meanwhile he stays in Amy's old room.
