I Missed You

Jim looked at his watch again. The train was due in about ten minutes. Jim felt a mixture of joy and apprehension as the time passed. Blair was coming home. He had called Jim, asking if he could come home. Jim said yes, trying not to sound too needy.

Blair had left Cascade two years ago to head up an anthropological expedition to Canada. He had taken a leave of absence from the police department to pursue his dream. It was a favor to a professor from Rainier. Jim allowed Blair to go, to have Blair do what he wanted, to do what would make him happy.

Jim took Blair to the train station, told him he'd miss him and for him to make sure he came home. Blair assured Jim he was coming home, but that he didn't know how long he'd be gone. He would miss Jim, too.

Jim heard the train arriving. There had been contact over their time apart. During the two years, Jim realized he was in love with Blair. He never said anything to Blair, but now he was thinking he should. It was true -- absence does make the heart grow fonder. Jim was anxious for the train to arrive.


Blair noticed the train nearing the Cascade station. He was almost home. The smile slowly crossed his face. It had been a long two years, even with his sporadic contact with Jim. It would be good to be home.

During his time away from Jim, Blair realized he loved Jim. He had had feelings for Jim since the beginning of their relationship, but Blair hadn't acted on them. However, after being apart and from the talks he had with Jim; Blair was feeling that maybe Jim might be as interested as Blair was. He was really hoping the feelings were mutual between them.

Blair knew Jim would be at the train station. Blair had called Jim, asking if he could come home. He could hear something in Jim's voice when he said yes. Something that made Blair thinks that Jim was probably ready to talk about their mutual feelings.


Jim stood on the platform, waiting for the passengers to come off the train. He was actually only waiting for Blair to come off the train. He automatically extended his senses, picking up Blair's heartbeat and his scent over everything else. Then Jim saw Blair walk off the train, his curls bouncing in time to his steps.

Within minutes, Jim had Blair engulfed in a bear hug.

"I missed you, Chief," whispered Jim, softly tickling Blair's ear.

Blair rested his head on Jim's chest, his hair tickling Jim's chin. He looked up, wide-eyed, at Jim. "I missed you, too, Jim."

Jim reluctantly released Blair from the bear hug. "So, how was Canada?"

"Sorta like Cascade -- cold and wet. The only thing missing was you."

"Well, I guess I'll have to warm you up." Jim helped Blair with his luggage and they walked to Jim's truck.


On the ride to the loft, Blair talked about his expedition and the discoveries he made. And how many articles he'd be able to produce from it all. Jim told Blair about some of the more spectacular cases Blair had missed while he was gone. It was mostly routine stuff.

When they reached the loft, Blair placed his hand on Jim's arm before he got out of the truck. Jim looked over at Blair.

"Is something wrong, Chief?"

"No. I just have something I need to tell you." Blair paused, not sure how to continue, but by looking at Jim, he found his courage. "I love you, Jim."

There was silence for a few seconds and then Jim started laughing. He looked over at Blair, and seeing the frown there, leaned over, planting a kiss on Blair's lips. "I love you, too, Blair."

Blair's frown turned into a smile. As Jim pulled away, Blair moved his hand behind Jim's head and pulled him in for another kiss. It was a deeper kiss and both men participated.

"Why don't we take this upstairs to the loft?" suggested Jim as they parted.

"Um-m-m, sounds good to me."

As they walked up to the loft, both men were happy and anticipating what was to come.
