Chapter Notes:
Sorry it took me an extra day to get this chapter up! Luke finally makes it to LA, where does it go from there?
This story is told heavily in Luke's perspective.
The two days have passed and its god, it’s already three am. I better get up and get ready to head to the airport for my flight at 6. I didn’t get any sleep last night, I tossed and turned all night just thinking what today has in store for me. Seeing Noah after all this time is really getting to me. I can’t sleep, can hardly eat. Can hardly breathe with my chest feeling like it’s caving in.


When I get to the Air Port, I get through all the lines and security in plenty of time to catch my flight to LA. So I’ve decided that I will slow down, grab a bite to eat and use the restroom and still have time to get to my gate and get my flying nerves under control. I’ve always been a nervous flyer, but this time is different it’s mixed with other emotions, emotions that has everything to do with seeing Noah later today. I haven’t seen this boy in a year and I miss him so much.


As I’m sitting down to eat my airport lunch I hear a man behind me say something about how gay man shouldn’t be allowed to fly because “Who would want to be on a plain with a man who wants to get in every other males pants for hours?” So I do what I never should have done, I turned around and said to the him “Oh don’t worry, there is not a gay man within 50 yards of you that will touch you with a ten foot pole” The man got so red in the face I laughed then turned around to finish eating what I could of my food. After I’m done I’m at my gate and waiting to board. Whelp, there’s no turning back now “T-Minus 6 hours” I say out loud, the countdown is on. I text Noah to let him know that we are about to start boarding and that I love him.


When everyone is in their set and getting ready for takeoff, I start thinking about how my family reacted when I told them that I was going to LA to see Noah. They were all supportive of my choice, they know how much he means to me, and how much I need him, and besides they all love him, and they’ve all had amazing relationships with him. To put it mildly I wasn’t the only one devastated when he left. I actually remember when he told everyone good bye, It was like he was taking a piece of everyone one when he left. There’s no denying that he took a piece of me.


I know that I loved Reid, what we had was one of a kind, and I’m not sorry that we happened, but what if I fought harder for Noah? What if I gave up on us too soon? Everyone said I did what was best for me. He pushed me away so hard for so long that I just couldn’t do it anymore. I needed someone to actually want me. Some one that was happy to see me at the end of the day, and at the end our relationship I felt that Noah wanted nothing to do with me. I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do so I backed off.


Noah is right though he never was that good with words. I’ve been thinking back to the fight that led to Noah and I’s first time. We had broken up because to Noah and everyone else including myself ‘I couldn’t stop drinking and throwing myself at men twice my age who happened to be married to someone I say I respect.’ He was talking then, -I have to laugh out loud- well more like yelling, but it’s what happened next. I remember saying “Well at least I apologize, I'm not too stubborn to admit that I'm wrong or too selfish, “selfish” he repeated back to me stunned, “you're selfish with your feelings you push me away over and over again you have all these stupid excuses like your father or your military upbringing or whatever but the truth is you're just too scared to let anyone get close to you why are you so scared Noah? He had said “I’m not” “ yes you are, you can't let somebody love you and just love them back why not why can't you just go with your feelings and just do it just feel what you're feeling and just let it go.” I had said, then he grabbed me and kissed me in the middle of town, we barley made it back to my house that day.


That was the day that I thought we had gotten back together and nothing could ever tear us apart again. Boy, was I wrong! The pilot came on the intercom just then to announce our decent in to LA. I was getting more nervous by the minute. I’m this close to seeing Noah, and I’m feeling every emotion known to man. What do you say to a man that you haven’t seen in a year? More importantly what do you say to man that you have loved and lost and loved again? And that is the question.


As I’m standing there waiting for my luggage I feel someone tap me on my shoulder. I know who it is before I even turn around, and when I finally do I come face to face with the most beautiful, tall, blue eyed man I have ever seen. “Noah!” I say as I go in for a gigantic hug. He smiled then hugged me back and asked how I was doing. “Tired and dirty after the day of travailing I can’t wait to get back to your place to take a shower and just relax.” “Well, you’re in luck Snyder that’s exactly where we’re headed!” Noah said laughing. It was good to hear his laugh in person. I knew I missed him but I didn’t know I missed him like this. The moment or eyes met when I turned around it was like a weight was lifted of my shoulders, everything was brighter, and smelled better. It was a natural high that I never wanted to come down from.


When we got back to his place and I got my luggage in his spare room, we both decided to sit on the couch and relax before I took a shower. As we’re sitting there talking I notice that he looks a little uncomfortable. So me, being who I am decided to stop him. I told him that we should stop with the small talk, that I am here now and we need to work things out. We need to do this now. We have too much to say. And quite frankly I’m sick and tired of not talking. As we sit there saying nothing staring into each other’s eyes Noah opens his mouth to start speaking, but then closes it again. It’s a good while before we start speaking but I as peruse I start speaking first. And he listens to me, and for the first time I think he actually hears me. I don’t know what had gotten into him in the last year but I think I like this new Noah.


“We really don’t have to get into all this now, you just got here.”


“I feel like with everything that we have talked about and my being here is just proof that we need to get this all out of the way before we get any more invested in us. Before we get to comfortable we became the same people we were before all this happened. We need to be new people, we can’t keep repeating the same mistakes or we will lose each other for good Noah.”


“I know but I just want to be us just for a little while before we get into the hard stuff.”


“I hate to break it to you Bubby, but the hard stuff has already began.”


{Noah} “I know” was the last thing that I had said before flinging myself at Luke, when he had called me “Bubby” my mind kind of went blank. If I had to admit it to myself I missed Luke calling me that. I missed everything about him. His scent, the color of eyes, and the way he was always smiling, but what I think I missed the most was the way I could always feel Luke smile when we kissed.


{Luke} Wow! What has gotten into Noah? We were just talking and then the man mauled me with kisses! I’m not complaining though. I missed this; I missed his taste, his soft lips the way he always kissed me like his life depended on it. It was those kisses that I needed for so long, it was his lips that I craved his arms that I longed for when I was grieving for Reid. Don’t get me wrong, I missed Reid but I knew I would never get to be in his arms again. But with Noah I knew I always had his arms to run to when I needed them, when I needed him. I can’t imagine not having this man in my life.
