“Are you ashamed of me?”

Connor’s hurt, angry words still echoed in Lester’s thoughts.

“No. Never.”

He loved Connor. He was proud of him, and of everything he had achieved.

“Then why won’t you tell anyone that we’re together?”

Lester wished he could explain that things were different for his generation. That coming out wasn’t so simple for him. That he feared it would damage his career, and his public image.

He didn’t say any of that, though, because he was afraid that Connor wouldn’t understand.

He was even more afraid that one day Connor would ask him to choose.

*wibble* What an awful position for them both to be in!

It's not an easy one, that's for sure. And Lester is probably too proud to admit his fears, which won't help...

*hugs both boys* What a horrible position for the boys to be in - the expectations of different generations.

They're definitely both coming at this from completely different viewpoints, which is not going to make it easy to reconcile the situation.

Oh meep! I hope he doesn't get asked to choose as well.

Me too! This prompt definitely screamed 'angst' at me.

I feel for both of them. I can definitely sympathise with both. Hopefully Connor believes he is loved.

I'm sure Connor knows that Lester cares, but he's probably wondering if Lester cares about his career *more*.

Awww, so understandable, but yes, maybe one day Lester has to choose. *huggles them both*

Eeep - the culture clash might be about to claim more victims...

They're definitely both coming at the situation from completely different viewpoints, poor boys.

Definitely! Thanks.

Poor Lester, forced into that position for fear of what might happen if he comes out. I'm sure that Connor can be patient with him.

Thanks. Poor boys, there's no easy answer to the situation.

Oh, poor boys.

Thanks. Yep, my angst-stick is back in use :-)
