A tragically sad Jalec drabble, an AU with no powers. I wanted to try something different, a different form… TW: death.
“… and when I found out that the treatment didn’t work, that he was dying, I decided to give him what I’ve always known he wanted: my love, the love of a lover, not just that of a friend, and I gave him everything, I held nothing back, because it wasn’t about me, it was about him, and I never thought I could feel that way about another man, not once, but I did, I did, about him…
… and you know what the most tragic part of this is? Just before he died, he said to me, ‘Thank you for pretending.’”
Way to break my heart in so few words… 🙁
