    Summary

    Hanzo didn't know what to expect when he left Japan, but with his brother at this side, he would do anything to keep him safe. Even leave everything he knew, loved, and understood behind. Fleeing to California seemed like an extraordinarily outlandish idea, but his brother assured him that the southwest was a land of mystery, beauty, and romance--at least that's what his novels told him. He doesn't want to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life, so without hesitation, Genji closes his eyes before the train station's map, points, and tells his brother that's their destination. A little town out in the desert, away from the lights and busy streets of Los Angeles, where they'll start anew.

    Summary

    “No can do, baby. I have something else in mind for tonight.” Keith says as he turns back to the vanity. The finishing touches are nearly there; he just has to see them through, maybe even snatch a dab or two of Kuro’s cologne.

    Kuro folds his arms across his chest in false nonchalance. He says, “oh yeah, and what were you thinking?”

    “How about ruining my ex’s night?” Keith says, eyeing Kuro from the mirror.

    Summary

    The streetcars weren’t particularly crowded this time of day. There was even a seat available as Yuri got on and he debated taking it. Most days, he would have been right on it, but sitting down seemed like a losing proposition today.

    Betting against gravity is always bad money. Yuri snorted under his breath as the words he’d heard his grandfather say so many times ran through his head. He used to repeat the phrase through giggles when he was younger like it was the best joke he’d ever heard. The idea seemed so obvious as to be absurd. Of course gravity always won.

    The absurdity of it had worn off some with age, since Yuri had discovered too many ways that gravity could pull at him for it to be quite so funny anymore.
