Three Little Words

It’s probably wrong, and there’s no way Joe means it like that.


Joe says it like it’s nothing, just a habit, though sometimes Dex thinks maybe… Well, maybe what, he’s not sure. It doesn’t help that he’s not even sure how he feels himself.

He sees himself in the fan mail Joe gets, in the childish scrawl of boys writing to their hero and in the elegantly-penned letters signed with lipstick kisses. But they don’t know Joe; all they know is Sky Captain.

Dex knows Joe’s all too human, but that doesn’t stop him wanting to worship him, to kneel for him. It’s probably wrong, and there’s no way Joe means it like that, but all Dex knows is nothing makes him come harder than replaying those three little words in his head: Good boy, Dex.
