a bit of doubt

Drex had decided after there little dinner with Johanna and Anthony that they should just get it over with.

"I can't hide us from Johanna," he told Leon when they got back to Drex's.

"Why not? What's so wrong with how it is?" Leon of course was indifferent about the matter. "Maybe it wouldn't be as much fun if it weren't a secret." He gave Drex an impish grin then.

"Is it really necessary?"

"You said you weren't sure how your brother would take it, now did you?"

"No."

"What if he....throws you out?"

"I don't care." Drex sighed.

Leon wasn't sure if he heard him correctly.

"Really?" This made him nervous. He thought he could keep his cool. But what if it all changed so suddenly. What if he actually had to take care of Drex. It never occured to him until now. "Hold on. Don't over react. Things are fine the way they are. I don't want you going and upsetting your whole life over me." He felt a bit selfish for saying it. Possibly it was more his benefit than Drex's. "If you feel the need for Johanna to know, then tell her. She could keep our secret. Don't you think."

Drex just shook his head, no. Leon kept smiling. He came closer and naturally kissed Drex's worries away.
