“Jackson knew it wouldn’t take much for himself to break; he kept trying to glue the pieces back together as they were falling out. He knew there would be a point where he’d either run out of glue, or everything would just crumble too fast.

“What he didn't realize, was that all it would take for that to happen would be for Alex to turn off the light, crawl into Jackson’s bed, put his arms around Jackson’s body, and pull him close.” – “Preserved” by Stingray
