Angered and being reminded of once being an orphan, Iron's father, Azure Glide, brought Quasar to live at his house to give the teen some proper shelter. Despite being welcomed with open arms by him and Celaeno, Quasar still felt heartbroken that those who brought him into the world would reject him for being himself. Sitting in his room, Iron did his best to comfort Quasar, clutching the rainbow beanie Azure bought for him. Yet, it did very little to lift his spirits as he began crying.
Not being able to bear seeing his boyfriend cry, Iron pulled him for a warm embrace, rubbing his back in a soothing motion while whispering reassurances. When he calmed down, Iron still felt that Quasar still felt isolated, never a good thing for on in his position. Holding his hands in his, Iron reassured him with the same words his father spoke to him when he came out.
"Remember, you're loved no matter what."
Leaning in, Iron and Quasar shared their first kiss together before breaking away for some air. Though brief, it had an effect that Quasar had never felt before. It was like love but a different form of it. It was only at school that they confessed their love for one another but a simple gesture like a kiss sealed it. Quasar loved Iron very much and knew he was perfect for him. Though years away, he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with him but that is a tale for another time. Just as they were about to lean in for another, they were interrupted by the sound of Azure's voice, letting them know that they were due to go out for dinner soon. Still, with their first kiss, Iron and Quasar reinforced the bond between them.
