1 Work in Tom Mason/Original Male Character(s)
The thing was, Tom thought, he was – he had been a history professor. He had been married, and he had three children. He had loved his job, he had loved his wife, and he loved his kids. He wouldn't be, and had never been, willing to risk losing any of the three cherished things in his life for that.
He was still in that mindset of a professor, which made him ignore any flirting directed at him. That was the only reason he could think of why he hadn't realized that someone was courting him.
