It amazes Spock, at times, just how much
Leonard does love him. As he
watches the flickering flames grow sporadic,
the candle starting to burn
out, he has to swallow hard. For he knows
that he may not have Leonard here
with him for much longer.
Spock wonders if he can dare to tell Leonard
that he loves him, when all
that he has been taught is to suppress
emotions and never admit to them.
Yet, Leonard is everything to him, so can
he take the risk of never being
able to tell Leonard what he means to him,
before it is too late?
