"Oh." Was all Axel could say, going into such deep thought that it was written all over his face. It was hard to see sex as something that wasn’t meant for siblings, so understanding asexuality in general was double the effort for the quiet, tall boy.
"W-What if it was just with the wrong person?" Axel asked quietly, his words colored with deep thought and self-reflection.
Dustin sighed, “I was with a lot of people,” he said, “I just…nothing,” he shrugged.
Axel sniffled and cleared his throat a few more times before he finally settled himself in by nuzzling himself against Dustin, resting his head on the other’s chest and letting out a contented and exhausted sigh.
"…Why?" he asked suddenly, after a few moments of thought. "Why are you… asexual?" he asked, voice still raw, but was better than crying in general.
Dustin froze and then shrugged, “I just…don’t find the idea of sex appealing. I’ve tried it, I hated it with both genders.”
