When Jacob’s hand came up to cup Caleb’s jaw and pull him closer, Caleb braced himself against a jolt of revulsion and disgust. It never came.

Jacob was the one to pull away this time. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to–”

Caleb caught him by the wrist and held on tight, not letting him move more than a few inches away. He grappled with his thoughts, and finally found the words to say, “I–I can’t make you any promises.”

Jacob stared for a moment, then shaking his head, whispered, “I never asked for any.”
