    Summary

    This is what David's life has been reduced to: trying to revive the fortunes of the Schittsville Bee, a small-city newspaper that is all that is left of the once-mighty Rose News Group.

    When he stumbles on a big story, it only makes sense to swallow his pride and contact his ex-lover, big-time reporter Patrick Brewer, to get some advice.

    The last thing he expects is for said ex-lover to turn up on his doorstep.

    Summary

    “I just want to make sure we’re on the same page, about what this is.” His hand made a circular gesture between them. “I’ve been caught in tricky situations before where both parties are different ideas about what’s going on, and seeing as we’re neighbours? I thought we should be upfront about that.”

    “Okay David. What is it that you think that this is?” Patrick mimicked David’s hand gesture.

    David pressed his lips between his teeth. “We’re … friends. Who … sometimes fuck?” He looked away from Patrick, not wanting to see his reaction. He wasn’t sure why this felt difficult. It was just sex.

    “Sure,” Patrick breathed out. “That works. Casual sex is fine by me.” There was something that flickered in his eyes when he said it, but David couldn’t place it.

    “Enough talking then.”

    Summary

    He had no guidebook to tell him how his world would crumble if the unspoken expectation went broken, because he had never broken them before. His one mission in life, his entire purpose, was to abide by those rules, spoken and unspoken. Being gay felt like a molotov cocktail to the entire roadmap that was made for him.

    Summary

    That’s it. He felt helpless, in a place he built from the ground up. In a place he has invested so much of his time. He felt scared, and alone, and helpless.

    “Yeah,” he finds himself muttering. “How can I stop that?”

    “The feeling of helplessness?” Twyla asks, seeming surprised that David is engaging in conversation with her, when he’s usually keeling over with exhaustion at this time of morning. “I’m not sure if it’s exactly what you’re looking for, but I do run a self-defence class. It used to be in Mutt’s barn, but since he’s not there anymore we now hold it in Ray’s front room.”

    OR, David and Patrick meet for the first time after the robbery, at Twyla's self-defense class!
