“So, Benjamin Harper has anyone told you that you have a mighty fine ass?”


Ben snorted a laugh and kept on moving with his boyfriend’s laughter trailing behind. He paused when he reached the top of the hill and waited for JC. “Hold my hand as we go into the clearing.” They both stepped up and through the trees. An outdoor table and chairs sat before them. “Now look to your right.”


JC turned slowly in the direction Ben advised and his breath caught. The lake lay sprawled out before them with no barriers of trees or buildings, just shining water and the opposite shore covered in pine trees capped with snow “Now I understand why you like it up here. This place is amazing.”


“I know,” Ben murmured. “In the summer I bring a book, or my sketchpad up here and somehow find the strength to deal with whatever problem I’m having. And in the winter, I bundle up and come up here to experience the extra quiet of the snow covered earth. And if I’m sad, I cry and let the tears freeze on my cheek. It reminds me that I’m alive.”


JC stood silent for a moment trying to absorb everything his boyfriend said. And then it clicked. “Wait, you…you don’t feel alive sometimes?”


“No, I don’t. I feel…I don’t know, emotionless I guess. Without purpose. I have never been able to see a future for myself. Oh, I can list what I want to happen in the future but I can’t see it or grasp it.”


“You never told anybody,” JC realized suddenly. “Why?”


“Oh, that’s easy,” Ben said, sitting down at the outdoor table and inviting JC to sit next to him. I never knew how to voice it until I talked with a psychiatrist last month.”


“I wish I could have helped. Hell, we were best friends , shouldn’t I have noticed? I’m sorry, Ben.”


“Stop right there, James. It isn’t something that you could have seen or even guessed at. I couldn’t even do that. It’s hidden. Don’t ever be sorry about that. There was nothing you could do.”

JC sat silent, looking out at the lake. The wind was picking up and the water rippled with the breeze. “Why do you like me, Ben?” Why do you love me?”


“That’s easy,” he replied. “You make me laugh, you warm my heart and you feed my soul by giving me so many good things in life.”


“And do you know why I love you?”


“No,” Ben whispered. The anticipation was thick. Why would anyone in their right mind love Benjamin Harper?


“Because without you in my heart, I lose my humor. I become unkind and cannot warm a heart, and all of the good stuff with which I feed your soul turns sour. Without you I’m incomplete. Without you, the good in me dies.”


Ben had his head turned away from JC as he listened. The tears in his eyes made him feel weak. “I love you, JC.”


“Ben, look at me.”


After only a moment’s hesitation, he turned to look at his boyfriend. He saw only acceptance and love in his eyes. There was no judgment as he’d feared.


“I love you too, Ben. I even love that I think your corny has worn off on me.”


“Yeah, you were being kind of corny but I loved every word you said.”


JC chuckled. “We make quite a pair. You know, everyone says that teenagers are too young to fall in love, but I truly believe that what I feel for you is more than puppy love. But how do we ever know for sure that this is real?”


“We don’t,” Ben murmured. “We just have faith that if our love isn’t real right now, it someday will be because I know we are meant to be together. Our future was always pre-written, since the day we met on the playground in kindergarten. Fate or God or Karma couldn’t be so cruel as to pull us apart after we’ve been through so much together. I have to believe that.”


Ben and JC sat looking out over the water until the light from the sun started to wane and the air in the shade of the trees became bitterly cold. “We should probably head back,” Ben admitted reluctantly. I’m starving and don’t want to miss dinner.”


“Yeah, me too,” JC agreed. “I wish we could just build a little cabin here in the clearing and stay forever.”


“Me too,” Ben whispered.
