Zane blinked in surprise. “It matters to me,” he said quietly. “I want to know. So I….” His voice trailed off and he swallowed. “So I can protect you.”
Ty sniffed. “Protect me from being afraid?”
“Protect you when you’re afraid,” Zane corrected.

This, this is the problem issue brilliance of re-reading – the feels hit on what I’d previously read as a passing comment. I read this now and think OMG Sanchez!! He was one of those bilingual agents and now……and I’m still convinced that his funeral will have happened during this books timeline (probably during the break)

Zane’s anger wilted, and he just looked at Ty while he stood there and ached inside. “I don’t want to hurt you”

He had turned around to look at him, and some of the cold was out of his demeanor, revealing a hint of unusual vulnerability. “You said I wouldn’t miss you.” He drew in a long breath, and his voice was even quieter when he spoke again. “You were wrong”

Ty was silent, unmoving as he met Zane’s eyes across the room. “I was wrong about a lot of things”

There was a hitch in Zane’s movement that gave away his reaction to Ty’s words, and his hand stayed jammed into his pocket as he shifted his weight and then his eyes returned to Ty. Zane searched the other man for some clue, some sign, as his mild apprehension was overwhelmed by want. Want for something of Ty he couldn’t define. Zane didn’t say yes…but he didn’t say no.
