Colonel Sheppard sought out Major Lorne in the black of night.
They met in poorly lit corners of unexplored hallways.
They traded rough handjobs and quick blowjobs in empty closets.
They stole frantic kisses in secluded rooms that may have been living spaces in their previous incarnation.

They shared a tent on away missions and silently took to opposite sides lest someone saw.
They laughed and teased during meal times, but never let their eyes stray for too long.
Under no circumstances did they tell the other how much he meant.

Such was the life of two cautious military men.
