I care about other people, Robert.

[Joseph doesn't just believe that - it's true. His eyes go wide at the insinuation, again momentarily losing his control over himself. The hurt is real and tender, two vulnerable heartbeats passing before Joseph glances away to regather himself.

The alcohol might be helping him feel bolder about being inside Robert's house, but it isn't helping Joseph stay unmoved by what the owner has to say.

I'm not alone in struggling with how to...convey that to others, though.

[Is he, Robert.

His face still pointed at the table, Joseph's eyes come up to look at Robert. Carefully, shaded by his eyelashes, he watches him.

It's nice, being this close. Being able to see him in person.
