It was a little like flying, really. A little like magic, too. Getting off the ground's scary as hell, but now that he's leveled off, he doesn't know what he's been frightened of.

He doesn't know when he's coming back down, or how smoothly, but that's a risk inherent in anything. There is magic in the mundane, too.

He tucks his hands under his head and listens, to the rain on the roof, the distant roll of thunder, the footsteps coming down the hall. Of all the things he thought he'd find in London, love hadn't been one of them.
