The day the world went blind, Thomas heard Daniel screaming from the bedroom, "I cannot see! I cannot see!"

By the time Thomas reached him, his eyes, too, glazed over into darkness.

"My eyes!"

They fell to the floor and pressed their hands to each other's face. Commotion rose in the streets. Cars crashed. A woman was shouting, "Help! Help me!" just outside their window.

What Thomas feared most, having been trapped for hours in that dark place, was to never see Daniel's rich and gentle brown eyes.

Then, like a switch, Thomas regained his sight and saw Daniel staring at him with those eyes — now swollen from tears — and loved him all over again.
