“Scotty? Are you awake?”

Scotty opens one eye, which doesn’t change much. Their bedroom is quite dark. He feels Kevin’s arms around him, one hand stroking his side gently, wanting his attention.

“Yeah?” Scotty replies, his voice a bit scratchy from just waking up.


“I did know about governor Kern’s affair,” Kevin says quietly. Scotty turns around to look at Kevin, and Kevin lifts his arm a bit to allow Scotty to move.


“What?” Scotty asks, still a bit sleepy-sounding, blinking with his eyes a couple of times as if to see if Kevin is really there.


“At mom’s,” Kevin reminds, and quietly continues. “You said you had read online about governor Kern having an affair, and I said I had only heard rumors about it. But I knew. I might even have leaked the information to the media personally.”


“Ke-vin?” Scotty says, raising an eyebrow. He sighs and inhales deeply, knowing that a debate over what lengths to go when working for Robert will not suit well right now. “Why did you wake me up in the middle of the night to tell me that?”


“Because I’ve been laying awake for three hours, feeling awful for having lied to you,” Kevin says. Scotty notices that Kevin’s voice is a bit shaky and that his eyes are doing that puppy thing that they do when Kevin is very sad and very small.


“You lied to your mother too,” Scotty reminds.

“I know. I don’t care about that right now,” Kevin almost whispers in the dark night.

“Oh Kevin,” Scotty says, snuggling closer to Kevin, “don’t feel bad about that. Let’s sleep now.”


“You’re not mad that I lied to you?”

“No,” Scotty says. “But I’m glad you told me the truth.” Scotty feels Kevin relax in his arms, burying his nose in the junction of Scotty’s neck. Kevin mumbles “I love you,” and begins snoring in the same breath. Scotty giggles a bit and kisses Kevin’s cheek, closing his eyes and drifting off as well.
