Above everything else, Alec and Seregil are friends, and their friendship is showcased beautifully, there. They both have wounds to heal, and they take their time doing it. Gorgeous writing.
Seregil is still quiet, though. Every few hours, Alec has to fight the urge to shake him, or tap his arm. Just to be sure he's paying attention.
At night Alec can't let go of him. He wakes up with his hands on Seregil's shoulders and his legs hooked around Seregil's knees, pinning him down. He sleeps in short bursts of two or three hours and then starts awake to make sure Seregil is still there, close enough to touch.
