[[Oh wow I just saw this look at how terrible a mun I am…]]
Josh was hunched over facing away from Kayden with his eyes tightly shut. The tears were just flowing down his face. He’d just caused the biggest fight his friends had ever had… why was Kayden still talking to him? How? He’d been so horrible…
"You still love him… don’t you?"
[[Oh look even worse the only thing that came to my head when I saw this…*headdesk*]]
Josh clung to Kayden just as tightly as they hugged. Had he not been crying himself, Josh would’ve been trying to comfort Kayden as he usually did, rocking him gently and kissing him until he felt better. But Josh hurt, and he was finally letting out how he truly felt, not holding back. “N-n-no… d-don’t be…” he hiccuped. “I-I… I needed to hear you… hear you say that…” And it was true. Having Kayden shout at him was what really woke him up, showing him what he’d really been doing to the one he loved.
Kayden just cried quietly, afraid to let go in case Josh left him alone. Being alone right now wasn’t something he wanted, and he tightened his hold around Josh’s waist. He’d never felt smaller, wrapped up in Josh’s arms and feeling for the first time in a while that he truly belonged there. “I love you… Really, I do.” Kayden had never been more sure of anything in his life.
Josh tightened his hold on Kayden just as Kayden tightened his hold on him, and he rested his cheek on his head as they both cried quietly. The comfort of having Kayden there to just hold him… he hadn’t felt it since he was a young child, and his mother used to hold him like that. It was something that he’d missed dearly. When Kayden spoke, he felt his heart swelling a little.
"I love you too, Kayden… so much…" he whispered.
