If anyone had told Will five years ago that he'd be standing on a dock on his very own island, hosing down the boat he uses every day to run to the mainland with his husband, he'd have wondered what they were smoking. Of course, a lot of things have changed in the last five years. As Will puts down the hose and picks up a sponge, he finds his thoughts wandering back to the days when his life seemed so hopeless. He'd been in a loveless marriage, playing the part of a good husband because he couldn't stand the thought of failure. But then his best friend had come back into his life a couple of years later and turned his entire world on its head. Because Peter had helped him face the truth about himself, he had faced the failure of his marriage head on and ended up winning more than he could have imagined. He was now able to enjoy the tremendous amount of love he had in his life without guilt or fear that it was anything but absolutely right.
His thoughts turning to Orlando, Will smiles and scrubs a little faster. The sooner he's finished with his chores, the sooner he can go see what his husband's up to.
