The aftermath of an away mission gone horribly wrong leaves Jim and Spock sleeping together for emotional release, neither of them aware of their mutal pining.
Kirk's escape from his ripped-up heart isn't terribly healthy, but he has Bones to help him through. Mostly -- the Doctor suddenly has his hands full with relationship problems of his own.
Spock, however, keeps all his secrets locked tightly away. His telepathic shielding is destroyed, and his unlikely coping strategies risk his sanity -- and his life.
Though he craved every touch from Jim, each encounter left Spock feeling a little hollower, a little emptier. They came together in anger, in pain, in sadness – not once in joy. Joy was too...intimate, and the knowledge burned under his skin.
He could not live without the promise of his Captain's hands on his body; neither could he endure it even one more time.
This "friends with benefits" arrangement was -- quite literally, if this painful throbbing near his heart was any indication -- killing him.
