This was my take: (from the other thread)
"Absolutely lovers--Fahim adored living on the edge & their affair kept both of them high, in the literal sense, and intellectually, because it will never be revealed as such, and they did the "bro" horseshit as what they thought was a perfect deflection.
It wasn't really about money-- Fahim thought that by asking Tyrese to pay back the funds that that would be the proverbial kick in the butt to help Tyrese to step up to the plate and start at least acting like a responsible, mature adult . . . but since Tyrese, with Fahim 's blessing, had his fingers (and hands!) in every aspect of Fahim’s life it was not about to happen ever, in this lifetime. That's what it was ultimately about, a clash of wills, and who would ultimately prevail, in every sense of the word.
Although Tyrese was beholden to Fahim in so many ways, Fahim was always aware that Tyrese was physically his superior, and that's where much of the fire came from in their relationship. Add to that the age difference, it was an ultra-volatile situation that would ultimately destroy both of them, although both of them denied it often, consciously and not.
Fahim knew that this might happen some day; during especially athletic love-making, he flashed to that possibility, as both of them lay back, sweat-drenched, drained. But Fahim would not give up his toy, and certainly Tyrese would not willingly, ever. In the end it was Tyrese's ultimate statement of "If I can't have him, no one can"; the intensity of his final moments/hours with Fahim speak volumes of their ultimate entanglement with each other."
If it was a hit, why did Tyrese stay 24 hours with the torso, & why was he so sloppy with the details? Not pro at all!
