If you are under age, please stay away. If you have a problem with m/m-love, then look elsewhere for your entertainment. English is not my native language, so please be patient with my mistakes. Isla did a really great job to correct my errors, not to mention all the suggestions she gave. My greatest gratitude to her. For all remaining errors, blame me.
I raise my head and look at you. And you smile. With this warm smile you have quite checkmated me personally. With your so typical emotional behaviour you have not only overrun my defences on the chessboard but also the barriers of my Vulcan logic. How long will I be able to resist you and the emotions you provoke in me? But wish I at all to resist you further? Probably it is time to play another Human game: poker. I decide to stake everything on one card and speak aloud about my feelings.
"Jim, I love you."
