What exactly was Josh trying to accomplish here? This thing with Ste. It was a bit troublesome to Simon, but not really. He had someone new to occupy his time. It was just..it wouldn't be easy seeing Josh with Ste. He'd heard of it from Colin, but he hadn't seen them together. As of yet.
"You can't dwell on it?" Benji smiled and Simon could see he was very much distracting him. After all, it was very cozy getting to know him. He couldn't think of a better time of year where you could cuddle and fall into something so amazing as this.
"I won't." Simon liked being with Benji. He didn't question it. It was something he hadn't had in some time. Maybe it was the fact he'd really spent most of his love life with one person. Of course, the Kelsy thing might have been the bitter end of them. He certainly didn't want to go down that road again.
It was nice to hold hands in the park. Go to the shops together. Dig in old book stores for treasures. It felt like on holiday when there was nothing to it. Really. Yes, if this was love, this was what Simon wanted. It felt as if it had been handed over to him. So easily. He was still in a state of shock.
"It looks quite splendid." Maxie mentioned to him while he was over for lunch.
"Yes, I suppose it is." Simon was filled with laughter. Any moment he could just see Benji preposing to him. If not today. Perhaps tomorrow. It felt like the next step. And instantly, he knew he was ready for it. There was no looking behind. Pondering about Josh's and his mistakes. Simon was very much ready to move on with Benji.
