"Like me?" Jared asks.
"Like you," Jensen confirms.
Jensen takes a step closer and Jared takes a step back. He searches Jensen's face for some sign that this is all just the biggest joke, braces himself for the punchline.
"But ..." Jared begins.
"But what?" Jensen asks and Jared can see he's thinking about coming closer again, but he catches himself at the last second and stays still.
"You don't even like guys," he finishes softly.
"So what? I like you," Jensen answers, voice also dropping low. "Look, if you don't feel the same, that's cool. I just ... wanted you to know. You can tell me if you rather want to forget about the whole thing and that I should go away and I will."
"I do," Jared stammers out.
"You do?" Jensen asks dejectedly, pain flashing naked in his eyes. He turns away.
"No, no, don't go!" Jared jumps forward, grabs Jensen's arm. "Feel the same, I mean."
"Yeah?" Jensen asks with a grin.
