"Ducky, don't go. Don't leave me."
"Why not, Jethro? Tell me why I should stay."
Jethro stared at him.
He stared into Ducky's eyes. They seemed cold, distant, hidden from him, grey rather than their usual blue.
He had one chance. He knew that.
"Because I love you," he said.
Ducky looked at him. The steady gaze was no longer hidden, no longer cold. Instead it was heavy with regret, with sorrow, with sadness.
"Ah, Jethro," he said, lightly touching Jethro's face. "If only you had told me."
With those words he turned and walked away.
