Once, their hands brushed as Jake handed Charles some paperwork, and Jake had laughed uncomfortably and adorably, not meeting Charles’ gaze. And maybe Charles was making things up again, but that didn’t seem like normal platonic friend behaviour. There it was again: hope. It was the best feeling, and the worst – the teasing possibility that Jake might have feelings for him too.
Overall, things had been good. The last thing Charles needed was someone like Stevie swooping in and stealing his best friend.
