"I love him not, nor hate him not..." by Michelle K.

Between them, there's a tangle of sheets and empty space. "Josh," he begins. His hand reaches out tentatively; he's living in some valley between longing to do nothing but touch him and wanting to do everything but let their bodies brush together.

"Yeah?" Josh says. He's nonchalant, smirking, and Sam can remember when that used to make his knees weak. He remembers loving him, but the feelings can't be revived - even after doing this again.

It's nothing now, and Sam can't understand that. The opposite of love should be hate, but they bypassed that - even considering Amy and Ainsley and everyone else that's come between them.

Now it's just indifference.

"We can't do this anymore," Sam states simply.

Josh's smile disappears; he says nothing.
