Out in the Open

When it happens, it's not deliberate, self-conscious, a political statement, or (Blair's theory) staking a claim.

Not even because Blair's licking strawberry ice cream off lips three shades deeper with a pink, lively tongue and Jim wants to get a taste before it's all gone.


He kisses Blair, pulling him in close with a hug, kisses him in daylight, sunlight, outdoors.

Kisses him in a crowd, some staring, some not, some indulgent, some affronted.

Kisses Blair because he loves him and a kiss shouldn't have to happen behind a closed door.

Kisses him because it's past time he did.
