The shop was closed, but Garak saw him and let him in.

As the doors shut, Julian wrapped his arms around Garak and kissed him. Garak tensed, and he stopped. "I--I'm sorry, I thought you wanted--"

"I do," Garak said. "I was simply surprised. It's been a long time since anyone's... kissed me."

Julian raised an eyebrow and smiled. "I find that hard to believe. You're very charming."

"I'm also very cautious. It's rare to find someone worth the trouble."

Julian glanced down, then met Garak's eyes. "Am I? Worth the trouble?"

Garak pulled him close. "I believe you are."
