Candles




"Dominique embraced Levihan as he fell down, exhausted, on his chest. With a firm grip he held him while their hearts were still beating, with glowing eagerness, and the beads of sweat were glistening like diamonds in their foreheads. With his thumb and index finger, Dominique grabbed Levithan around his chin and kissed him while he caressed him gently over his back, while Levithan slowly stroke him back over his clearly marked collarbones.
So they lay, for a long time, in each other's arms, without uttering a word to each other. They didn't need to. 
One by one the candles burned out, and the fatigue settled like fog over Dominiques glassy eyes. Levithans gentle touches had ceased, and his hand now lay relaxed against Dominiques neck. His breath was heavy, and against his ribs Dominique could feel how Levithans heartbeat slowly regressed to its normal pace. He hugged him tighter and smiled for himself. Never before had he felt so fortunate. 
Dominique closed his eyes, and with a tender kiss on the slumbering doctors apprentice's head, which he then rested his cheek against, he dreamed himself away in his arms.
At last he had found his way home."
