    Summary

    Sherlock kisses him. Just like that.

    It’s swift. It’s light. It doesn’t linger, but it’s not quite a peck. It’s a press of lips to the corner of his mouth, a small, quick inhalation, and then Sherlock steps back and stares at him.

    Summary

    John feels a momentary twinge of fondness, a fondness he’s been allowing himself to indulge in more and more, of late. One more thing that’s changed. But this change is one that does harken back to those early days, and John finds he doesn’t mind. More than that, he finds he wants it. The anger and bitterness had begun to be too heavy a burden, and no matter how painful the thought of his feelings never fully being returned may be, it’s still easier to bear than the rage, regret and self-loathing. Sherlock wants him here at his side, he’s made that amply clear, on more than one occasion, since John moved back, and that’s enough.

    Summary

    He has been on the road for two years, and he is exhausted.

    He’s almost accepted that he will never see London (John) again—almost. But then there are nights like tonight, where he is weak, and all he can think of is the warmth of the flat they once shared, the crackle of the fire in the hearth, the teasing smile playing at the corner of John’s lips, the boxes of half-eaten Chinese takeaway balanced precariously in their laps. He aches at the memory of it, at the realisation that it is something he may never experience again.

    Summary

    “I love you.”

    Sherlock sees the words hit John with almost physical force. He reels back a little, jaw twitching and eyes filling.

    “I love you,” he repeats, a little softer, a little more gentle, as earnest as he possibly can. Because they’ve been teetering on the brink of this thing for years, and it had become painfully obvious over the last few months that they were at a tipping point. This had to happen. Now it has. Now they can see where they end up.

    The tears in John’s eyes spill over, and he wipes at them angrily. “Do you even know what that means?”
