Let me tell you a story. There were two boys and they had nobody else and they loved each other. These are facts. These are indisputable. One of the boys would break with a stiff wind, but his mind was tough and wiry like an old elastic band. One(more) of the boys was beautiful, he shone like the sun, his smile was like snow melting on hot metal. The first boy sat next to the second, day after day, wanting but never saying. The second boy was afraid. He died early.
The first boy could not live without the second. Not really. He died too, but later. First he saved the world.
