6. Comfort

 By Qzeebrella



Spock takes off his shirt and folds it neatly before placing it to one side.

Turning himself towards the light of the candle, letting its warmth caress

his skin. He hangs a bowl of oil over the flame, causing the air to be

filled by Leonard's scent. He closes his eyes and pictures Leonard's arms

around him, holding him close against his solid warmth. He breathes in

Leonard's scent and draws comfort from the memories it evokes in him. For a

moment it is as if Leonard is there, in the room with him, holding him and

he is content.
