I spoke briefly, with Iever.

( He made me a lemon cheesecake. It was very good. )

I don't know why I told him all that. But I did.

It doesn't feel any different, having said it aloud. Any more or less true.

But now he knows about me. Essentially everything. Even the things I haven't told Cid, and likely never will. And the rest, I think, unfortunately... he can glean for himself.

Collen and Caleb are growing so quickly. We might need to talk about that... maybe apprenticing them elsewhere for a while.

I hate it. I don't want to let them go. But they're 11 now. Young men, soon. And while we will always be their family, we can't be their whole world. I see it in Cid, too. The realisation, and resignation, sometimes. There are times these days where he and I will be together, in the silence, and it's... the sensation is difficult to describe. As if we've become so old and still, that we've become the same thing.

I don't know where my mind is, these days.

Cid smiles into the kiss. He keeps it up a little longer, then pulls back, brushing his hand through Vincent's hair.

"'M proud o' ye, ye know that?"

Vincent opens dazed eyes, flicking back and forth between Cid's, and slowly quirks up a tiny grin.

Cid smiles back, wide and carefree. He leans in like he means to kiss Vincent again and not stop for a long time, but there's footsteps pounding on the landing, and the voices of two exciteable boys. Cid pulls back, sighing. He ruffles Vincent's hair. "Remember our agreement," he says, pointing a finger at Vincent, and gets up incase he needs to help Shera with any bags.

Vincent watches him go, his mind still feeling a little short-circuited by the kiss.

He hadn't expected the kiss, but kisses were nice, too.

... not as nice, though, as seeing Cid smile at him like that.
