Leo and Thomas grew close over the holidays, but now they’re living in different towns a five hour drive apart. What seemed so easy over Christmas, is turning into something very complicated–especially since no one even knows they’re a couple.
Leo doesn’t know what he wants to do with himself once he finishes school. He never wanted to move back to his hometown, that’s for sure, but that’s where Thomas is. That’s where Thomas has his life. Leo has to decide if he’s willing to move back, and face his parents, if there’s ever going to be a chance of a future.
Thomas dreads the day the kids all move out and he’s alone in the house. Sadly, that day’s not that far ahead. He wants to be with Leo, perhaps have Leo move in once he finishes school, but can he really put his trust in someone who’s not compatible? He knows Leo craves sexual intimacy, and that’s not something Thomas is willing or capable of giving him. A relationship’s all about compromise… but can Thomas find one that satisfies them both?
