Work Text:

Layla knows he’s real, and he never knew that would have to be criteria for anything, least of all conducting any kind of relationship, but it is.

He waits for the perfect moments to gain control and be next to her, hold her hand, gently kiss her, and know that she won’t ask for him to be sent back, won’t call him names, won’t try to disprove that he’s a part of the world.

He cherishes that, and slowly, slowly, Marc sees that Steven is good for her, a stabilizing force in whatever their situation may be in the end.
