He could see Aron searching for words. “Would it be a terrible cliché if I said you aren’t alone anymore? I want to help.”

“Why? Why would you help me?”

Aron shrugged. “I don’t know.”

The two men held eye contact for a short time before Michael spoke. “I’ve been meaning to tell you something all night.”

“What’s that?”

“Thank you,” he smiled warmly.
