After leaving Fin's Hex had taken his time getting to the tube. He'd waited on the train and every moment that passed made him more and more queasy. He knew he needed to come clean with Danny. He knew he needed to accept responsibility for his actions. But he didn't want to. A big part of him wanted to go on without saying anything at all. Maybe Danny wouldn't notice.

He knew that wasn't true, though.

Danny noticed. Danny knew. He just knew things. It was impossible to lie to him, even moreso since Hex was a shit liar.

He finally came into the house well after dark and took off his jacket. He'd hoped Danny was out getting high but the lights were on and he knew the man was home. No avoiding this any longer, then.

"You home?" he called as he shed his jacket.

Danny was in the bedroom, looking a bit worn down as he rested against the headboard with a book in hand.

"I'm in here," he called back. "Could you bring me a cuppa?" he asked, not really feeling up to getting back out of bed now that he was settled.

"Thanks," Danny said softly, noting the other man's posture as he took the offered mug and patted the bed beside him.

"Bad night?" he asked gently.

"The beginning is usually as good a place as any," Danny said quietly, watching Hex with those big eyes that seemed to see everything.

Danny said nothing at first, looking down at his tea and frowning to himself.

He didn't like Fin, he never had- He couldn't even explain why, if he was honest. It was more than just how close he was with Hex though, surely. At least that's what he always told himself. That it wasn't just jealousy- The man was hiding something. Something huge. So much of what he said felt like lies.

Not so long ago just the mention of the actor would have been enough to set him off, but lately... Lately he found himself thinking about how lost he'd been after losing Alex, and it left him wondering what would happen when the day finally came and his illness took him from Hex. ...Or he took himself away from the illness.The drugs were good, sure, but if HIV didn't take him, there was always the chance that the government could.

The last thing he wanted was for Hex to wind up lost and alone.

"What do you want to do?" Danny asked finally, his words calm and tone soft. "Not think you should do, or whatever, Hex. What do you want?"

"Is that what you want? An open relationship?" Danny asked quietly, glancing at Hex and then looking back down at his tea. "Would it just be him, or... Are there other people you want to have sex with? I mean, I'm not completely against it, not if it'll make you happy, not if it's what you need, but- I'm sick, Hex, I could make you sick. There has to be a certain amount of caution involved. ...And it goes both ways. My immune system is doing alright so far, but getting sick is a concern for me, yeah?"

Danny set his mug aside, chewing his bottom lip, then sighing.

"I worry about what will happen when I'm gone," he confessed. "I wont pretend I like the idea of you and him, but- I never want you to be alone. I want you to have people in your life. People who'll support you, people you love. Your obsession with him, it- It feels a bit unhealthy, if I'm honest, but... I can accept you having something with him, if it means you wont be alone when I'm gone."

"I don't ever want to go," Danny said softly, his voice a bit tight and broken. He was as much a realist as he was a romantic though. At least when it came to matters of the heart anyway.

"I love you, Thomas Hector Schofield," he whispered. "I never want you to hurt like I've hurt."

"I'm not going to die tomorrow," Danny said softly, trying to be reassuring. "For all we know I'm going to live a long and happy life."

Danny turned his head slightly to meet him, returning the kiss softly.

He couldn't help but wonder what Scotty would think of all of this, and found himself wishing something he wished often- That the other man was still there to talk to, to guide him. ...To tell him if he was being an idiot.

"I know. ...I know," Danny promised. "I trust you, Hex. ...I trust you to come home to me, no matter where you wander."

God, he hoped he wasn't being a total fool though. He hoped Hex's heart really was here with him.

Danny slipped his arm around Hex, ducking his head and exhaling softly against the other man's neck. All the while he tried hard not to think about the fact that Hex had likely spoken similar words to Fin.

"Kind of a miserable way to reconnect," Danny pointed out with an uncomfortable and dry sounding laugh.

"Getting a possible death sentence isn't a great way to spark romance," Danny replied quietly, exhaling softly, then curling up against Hex again.
