A Big Secret




Mini Brian clambers onto his father’s knee.  Justin is in the kitchen.

“Daddy, I love you.”

“I love you, too, Gus.”

“And I love Justin.”

“Justin loves you, too.”

“Does Justin love you?”

“Yes, Gus. Justin loves me.”

“Do you love Justin?”

Brian leans in and whispers, “Gus, that’s a big secret.  If I tell you, you have to promise not to tell.”

Gus whispers back, “Not anyone?”

“Not anyone.”

“Not even Justin?”

“Not even Justin.”

“Okay.  I promise.  Do you love him?”

Brian whispers loudly.  “Yes. I love Justin very much.”

Justin, meeting his eyes across the room, smiles.
