Thawin tells him it isn’t evil to survive, to free himself, to thrive. Thawin doesn’t care what happened to Tam’s family, doesn’t ask questions.
Thawin has his own problems, Tam can see that Thawin is still trapped, caged by an obsession that’s gone on far too long.
Tam crawls into bed with Thawin and makes sure Thawin knows he understands, that they can be free together, that he can free Thawin.
They can start over.
They can start a new life
