Summary: Reaffirmation.

Author's Notes: This is set during "Twilight" and while it's the 7th story written, it is set before #6 (Risking Hope), sometime during the 9 years on Ceti Alpha V. While Malcolm might remember the date when these things happened, Jonathan certainly would not, so I'm not going to try to pin it down either.

"Jon, are you sure you want to make love right now? You've just heard a lot of news, none of it good. I'd understand if you'd like some time to process it all."

"Just touch me, Malcolm. Touch me now and don't stop. I need to feel your hands on my face, your lips on my chest, and you within me. What I want to take to sleep with me tonight is the memory of your body warming me…reaffirming that we live…that we love.

For the rest of what I've just learned, a day's memory is too long."
