Dan’s awakening heart is desperate to give love, contorts itself like green grass leans inexorably towards the light, and Pana makes it so good, so easy for Dan to give the love; Pana needs so much, so much of Dan, and so much of love that Dan gets to start from scratch:
See Spot run.
"Don’t be embarrassed," Dan whispers into the shell of Pana’s bright-red ear. "Everybody had to learn to read. You’re doing good, baby. So good. You’re so damn good.” He brushes his lips against the swirl, licks that soft earlobe and it’s so good Dan can’t help sucking it into his mouth while Pana moans and melts and
(Pana’s flint-eyed squint is more than a put-on; when Dan takes him to the range Pana misses one hundred percent of the target one hundred percent of the time.

"Can’t leave you alone," Dan growls. He thrusts his hard dick up the crack of Pana’s boxer-brief covered ass. "You want me to leave you alone?"
"I hate you," Pana pants into the sofa cushion. "Oh God, fuck me, Dan…"
Dan pulls down Pana’s underwear just enough that he can get to his hole, smacks his cheek hard. Then harder and harder and Dan doesn’t know when it turned into this but he knows Pana better not ever say that again.

"You’ll look so cute in glasses," Dan promises.
"I want contacts," Pana pouts.
"Only if you’re a good boy," Dan bends to sink his canines into that pout, shakes that lip a little until Pana smiles.
Dan still makes Pana pick out a couple pairs of back-up frames.
And he’s right: Pana looks so damn cute in his glasses mouthing the words to Dick and Jane.)
Dan makes sure Pana has a lifelong love of reading.
