"Want some help?" The Cuban turned his head just a fraction to see his lover standing behind him, and gave him a small smile.
"Sure. You always did love to help."
"Only when you needed it." He leaned back against the firm chest behind him as large hands lathered his body with soap and closed his eyes. The heat of the spray sent steam to fill the bathroom, and Eric inhaled it, catching the musky scent of Tim's skin as he did so. It was quiet for a few minutes, just the sound of the water hitting the bottom of the tub was all that could be heard, until Eric spoke up.
"I'm glad you came back. I really missed you." It was quiet again, and he didn't expect Tim to say anything back.
"...I missed you, too." He smiled as the older man pressed a kiss to his shoulder, and pulled him underneath the spray to rinse off the suds. "I meant what I said in there, you know. I do love you, and I'm back for good." Eric smiled sadly and turned around in the arms that held him, wrapping his arms around his neck and pulling him down for a kiss. It was soft, gentle and loving, and it felt like his chest would explode from it all.
