This week's snippet is a moment between Amory and Philip in The Prince's Consort.
He pulled Amory to him and held him, burying his face in Amory’s curls, breathing in Amory’s scent. He whispered, “Thank you.”
“For what?” Amory whispered back. But he held on just as tightly and let Philip snuggle in as close as he needed.
“For being you.” Only Amory could love so much, so completely, and Philip was grateful for it. After a second’s pause, he laughed a little. “That was horribly sentimental.”
“Yes, it was.” Amory said in a whisper, “But I liked it anyway.”
“Just don’t tell anyone.”
“Your secret is safe with me.”
