    Summary

    There weren't too many flowers around where Zolf grew up, so he'd play that game with bits of grass. "He loves me," he'd say, picking off an allotted amount of the stem, "he loves me not," until the whole grass blade was gone.

    Of course, now, it's not a problem. Hamid tells him, clear-cut, that he loves him. It's pretty hard to be unsure about how Hamid meant it when he's so bright, smiling back so wide when Zolf manages to stutter out a confession of his own.

    Hamid loves him.
    Hamid loves him not.

    Summary

    It was just a slippery slope. Zolf couldn't handle Hamid saying he loved him, and it hurt.
    And then Hamid stopped, and it hurt worse.
    And then Zolf left, and Hamid probably never even thought about him, and that hurt more.

    But he's back, now, and apparently, hearing Hamid tell literally everyone else he loves them and then purposefully skipping over Zolf is the worst. Slippery goddamn slope.

    It doesn't matter how many petals he picks off, or what they land on: Hamid loves him not.
    Hamid loves him.

    Summary

    People don't really touch Jonathan Sims unless they want to hurt him. That's mostly fine. Jon has never been a tactile person, and he doesn't need anyone but himself.

    Except the world is falling down around him, and loneliness aches, and sometimes he'll take anything - even cruelty - just to feel human again.

    *A story set between s1 and s4, looking at Jon's relationship with touch, friendship, and his own humanity.
