Tears – Nico Nova, Vander Pulaski
Nico receives a letter inviting him to a curio house. He is late and runs away from a mandatory mission for Vander. Displeased with his lover’s disobedience, Vander “punishes” Nico accordingly. But it’s not the punishment that brings Nico to tears… it’s the statement that follows.
“Tears” isn’t so much about crying as it is about holding the space for the tears to flow. It means creating a deep level of trust and confidence; when we cry, we are vulnerable and open. Seeing that level of vulnerability in a lover – and receiving those tears – is a tremendous and sacred gift.
