[Soccer Fic] Martin had never imagined it. Martin Skrtel/Daniel Agger
“Martin, let me get the-” Daniel began, but his lover reached up and switched the light on himself, smiling at the Dane, who leant forward and pressed his face into Martin’s neck.
“What’s the matter?” Martin asked worriedly. He wanted to step back, step away from Daniel, but he couldn’t. He was suddenly terrified. Daniel lifted his head from his lover’s neck and pulled away instead.
“I don’t think we should see each other anymore,”
“What? But I-” Martin began.
“We have families, Martin. We have wives and kids and football. It’s too much of a risk,” the Dane cut him off with words that stabbed Martin straight through the heart.
“That never bothered us before,” Martin whispered.
“I love you, Daniel,” the Slovak spoke desperately. His body was shaking slightly.
“I know. And I love you too,” Daniel said softly. He cupped Martin’s cheek a placed a soft kiss to his lips.
As Daniel turned to leave, Martin sat on the bed. He watched his lover leave before falling backwards, sobbing. After a while, he curled up in a ball and wrapped his arms around himself. He hated how they had never been able to be a real couple, pretending, lying all the time. He hated how he loved Daniel so much, yet couldn’t be with him all of the time. He hated how he fell apart whenever he didn’t have Daniel. He thought that they’d last forever.
Martin had never imagined that he would have to watch Daniel walk away forever.
