Desmond flinched slightly when Charlie flung himself at him, but soon enough his embrace warmed, his arms closing around the smaller man. There was something child-like about Charlie that he found endearing, and he rocked him gently against his frame. Charlie's long fingers dug into Desmond's flesh as if it were the only way to keep him close. An unexpected flash of heat shot through Desmond at Charlie's murmured, broken, request, "I won't rip you in two, Charlie. There's not room enough for both of us inside you." The words were filled with regret, but he knew he was right.
