"I love you. I... Love... You..."

He could say it over and over to the bathroom mirror, but in person? The words always failed him

"Done making yourself look pretty?" came a sarcastic voice from the other side of the motel bathroom door.

The door opened and Billy leaned against the door jamb, smirking.

"I'm already damn pretty. Don't need any help in that department." His eyes flicked to the papers in Don's hand, questioning.

"Transfer papers," Don admitted sheepishly. "I meant to tell you..."

"Don, I... I..."

The words died in Billy's throat as they always did.
