Abalone sat on Panic's lap, stroking his hair and kissing his cheeks. Panic did his best to ignore it and continue reading his book. "Panic, do you love me?" Abalone asked, poking out his lips in a pout, "Because I love you a lot~" "I suppose so." Panic replied, his eyes glues to the pages of his book.

Abalone huffed and straddled Panic, positioning himself to be blocking Panic's book. "I know it's bad to doubt you but…" -Abalone began twiddling his fingers- "Everyone says that you don't love me…and I wanna know if you do or not."

Panic felt his heart sink to his stomach. But he was such a coward…He couldn't say it. "I tolerate you." He replied, "Tolerance is key." Abalone's face fell slightly before he got off of Allan's lap and rose to his feet. Panic watched as the Fairy walked over to the window and sat there, gazing out at the trees and clouds. Panic let out a deep sigh and stood up, walking over to Abalone and standing behind him.

"No more talk of darkness…" Panic began to sing, "forget these wide-eyed fears; I'm here, nothing can harm you, my words will warm and calm you." -Panic got on his knees to be at Abalone's level- "Let me be your freedom, let daylight dry your tears; I'm here, with you, beside you, to guard you and to guide you."

Abalone joined him in singing. "Say you'll love me ev'ry waking moment; turn my head with talk of summertime." Abalone sang in an angelic sounding voice, "Say you need me with you now and always; promise me that all you say is true, that's all I ask of you." "Let me be your shelter, let me be your light;" Panic continued, "you're safe, no one will find you, your fears are far behind you."

"All I want is freedom, a world with no more night;" Abalone rose to his feet, standing above Panic, who was on one knee, "and you, always beside me, to hold me and to hide me."

"Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime; let me lead you from your solitude." Panic held out his hand to take Abalone's hand in his, looking at him with hope in his soulless eyes, "Say you want me with you, here beside you, anywhere you go, let me go too, Abby, that's all I ask of you."

Abalone looked down at his boyfriend, hesitating to take his fingerless glove clad hand. "Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime." Panic joined him in singing in unison, "Say the word and I will follow you. Share each day with me, each night, each morning."

"Say you love me…" Abalone sang.

"You know I do." Panic replied.

The boys joined in unison once again, "Love me, that's all I ask of you…" -Abalone took Panic's hand- "Love me, that's all I ask of you." Panic rose to his feet and looked deeply into Abalone's eyes. "Abalone." He said sternly, "I am sorry I have taken you for granted for so long."

Abalone looked into Panic's wide, lifeless, doll like eyes and smiled softly. Panic took both of Abalones hands in his, causing the fairy to blush. "I really wanna kiss you…" Panic whispered. "What's stopping you?" Abalone cooed, lowering his eyelashes.

"I can barely move my mouth…it's not really fit for kissing."

"I don't mind"

Abalone crashed his lips into Panic's (lips?) causing a small bit of surprise. Panic was surprised at first, but soon allowed it to happen. He lowered his eyebrows and wrapped his arms around Abalone, squeezing his hips. After a few moments Abalone broke the kiss and looked at Panic. "Abalone, I…" Panic said quietly, "Abalone, I love you…don't you dare forget that."

Abalone felt tears welt up in his eyes, his smile grew even wider. Abalone wrapped his arms around Panic's shoulders and hugged him tightly. "Please…" Abalone said quietly, "S-say it again…"

"I love you."


"I love you."

"One more time…?"

Panic wrapped hands around Abalone's waist, hugging him tightly. "Abalone." he started, "Abalone you are perfect and wonderful. I love it when you act silly and call me 'pancake' and what not. I love it when you distract me from my studies with kisses and hugs. I love it when you play with my hair like I'm a doll. I love YOU, Abalone Pearl. And don't you ever forget that."

Abalone pulled back slightly, him and Panic's bodies still pressed together.

"Say you'll share with me for one love, one lifetime…" Panic began to sing again, "Let me lead you from your solitude." Abalone laid his head on Panics shoulder, as he rocked back and forth to the sound of his voice. "Say you want me with you, here beside you, anywhere you go, let me go too, Abby…" -Panic stroked Abalone's hair-

"That's all I ask of you…"
