    Summary

    When Andrew came to Palmetto, he never thought it might become home – and even now he’s still not sure it is. Despite living there for nearly six years now, he doesn’t really feel like he belongs. He feels like he’s drifting, simply surviving day after day of whatever life has in store for him. Then Neil Josten shows up – a redhead with a fiery attitude and a million secrets, and Andrew's interest is instantly captured.

    But the thing is…Neil’s not the only one with secrets in this town. Everyone seems to have something they’ve kept hidden in the dark. And as soon as one thread gets pulled, they all seem to come unraveled…

    Featuring second chances, making mistakes, budding relationships, and as many fall shenanigans as possible – welcome to the smalltown world of Palmetto!

    Summary

    Andrew’s life as a university professor was utterly calm and boring. He had his daughter, his twin brother, his cousin, and his students. He had his demons too. Remnants of teenage times that were long gone. He wanted boring now, he wanted calm. Or that was what he told himself when the demi devil Nathaniel showed up and turned his life upside down with his brattiness, knives, pyromaniac tendencies, maniac tantrums, and sinful kisses.

    Nathaniel’s life as a crime boss was like being the king of hell. He had his knives, his employees, his family, and his empire to take care of. He had his enemies too. Remnants of a father that were long gone. He wanted to bring them down with whatever it took, there was nothing he wanted more than that. Or that was what he told himself when the man of golden eyes showed him that there was more than hell and his twisted up self with his hard discipline, whispers, dominant presence, secret smiles, and burning touches.

    Summary

    “Ridiculous, his behavior.” Day’s voice, clear now that Aaron’s pressed so close to the door, holding his breath lest he miss something with the rattle of his lungs. “I fear there’s nothing to be done most days.”

    “It’s shameful.” Matt says, tone agreeing. “After all we’ve done for him. You, more than anyone.”

    “Every day,” Day’s voice continuing, “I’m tempted to let him go.”

    ~ ~ ~

    After being disowned from his family and watching his twin brother murder their mother, Aaron Minyard is cast upon the dirty streets of Palmetto, orphaned and lonely. But when a tragic chance occurrence leads to his meeting the famous solicitor Kevin Day and his husband, the wealthy Matthew "Matt" Boyd, Aaron catches a new lease on life as a hired servant for the Day-Boyd estate. But when the news breaks that his outlaw brother has been captured and set to be executed, Aaron must reconsider all that he knows and feels for his brother. That, along with the tangled desires beginning to grow like ivy for the two men who saved him.

    Well, assuming he doesn't get fired first.

    Summary

    “Why are you defending him? He’s just standing there doing nothing while we do all the work.”

    Andrew expected Matt to say something along the lines of “I’m not defending him” or “it doesn’t matter” to deescalate the situation, get practice back on track. But he didn’t. Andrew almost thought he heard him wrong.

    “Maybe when you get as good as he is, you can stand around too, but until then, we still have to practice, alright?”

    or: three times one of the foxes defended andrew and the one time they all defended him

    Summary

    Neil huffed a laugh. “You know what’s funny? I said that to Kevin in high school. Not exactly like that, but it’s all the same.”
    “Kevin?”
    Neil rolled his eyes. “Day? One of the best strikers out there?”
    She fake gasped. “The Kevin Day? Omg! You have to get me an autograph.” She started fanning herself. “Oh, please, Neil. Let a girl live!”
    Neil’s deadpanned face made her break character and laugh.
    “Come on, Neil! That was funny.”
    “No.”
    She scoffed. “Whatever, loser. You’re welcome for watching your cat.”
    Neil flipped her off as she shut the door with a manic laugh.

    Or part three of this series where we'll go through Neil's and Andrew's journey through their future.

    Summary

    “Well, are you going to spit it out, or are you going to keep wasting my practice time?”

    Explosive laughter bubbled out of Jack at that. Kevin's frown grew ever deeper; Neil stopped wiping his tears and deigned to throw a puzzled look the laughing man's way. Andrew simply raised a brow and waited.

    “Has this fucker been drinking or something?”, asked Aaron, his already limited patience for Jack's bullshit wearing thin.

    “Whatever I have up my ass can't be bigger than what you had up yours last night, Day,” Jack said uglily, dripping with venom. “And maybe I'm not the one who needs to spit things out. You know, too much swallowing makes you seem desperate. Not a very good look on you, I must say.”

    Summary

    To the untrained eye, Neil Josten would seem entirely normal, albeit a little more tightly wound than usual.

    Andrew Minyard's eye is not untrained.

     

    Alternatively: Neil never thought he would live long enough to want a future and Andrew can't find the words to reassure him.

    Summary

    Though he tried to keep the day as normal as he could, Neil still got up a whole hour earlier than usual to take his run and attempted to make some eggs that burned when he got lost in thought. Andrew walked into the kitchen with a scowl and helped clean up the mess, making something actually edible with a mask of perfect calm. But Neil was an expert in Andrew’s facial expressions by now and could tell he was a bit nervous about what the day would bring.

    Facing Riko? No problem. The mafia? Neil could deal with it any day. Watching two little blonde girls that said words like ‘fishies’? Neil felt like his heart could stop at any moment.

    ~*~

    It's Aaron and Katelyn's anniversary, and they'd prefer to spend it child-less.

    Enter Neil and Andrew, who are going to do their damn best to give these kids the best sleepover ever.

    Summary

    Nathaniel Wesninski's twentieth birthday is a Very Bad Day for Neil Josten. But he's got Andrew, and he's got the Foxes.

    ...

    Neil saw through the freshman’s false bravado as easily as if it were made of glass and merely laughed in response – a cold, bone-chilling sound that was deeply at odds with his usual humor. “This is a promise, Jack: if you so much as look at Andrew again, I will personally ensure that the short remainder of your life is as painful as possible. And not a single person here will be able to do a thing about it.”

    Summary

    Nathaniel Wesninski is seven-years-old when he's brought to Castle Evermore to train with Riko Moriyama and Kevin Day as a business exchange by his father, Nathan Wesninski, the Butcher of Baltimore. He's eleven-years-old when Jean Moreau joins them, creating the Perfect Court. He's twelve-years-old when he makes his first deal, selling himself to the Main Branch in return for Jean and Kevin's safety in The Nest. Constantly saving others in exchange for himself--his body, mind, and freedom--so they can get out unharmed, a true martyr that Nathaniel Wesninski is.

    Andrew Minyard is nineteen-years-old and a freshman at Palmetto State University when he first meets the seventeen-year-old boy with icy blue eyes and auburn curls that fell in his eyes at the fall banquet.

    Hell's floodgates can all but collapse with all that comes after but [almost] everyone would agree that they would change nothing.

    Summary

    The few hours Neil was able to sleep weren’t enough to counteract the hungry, gnawing pit of terror that had been replaced in his chest by the nightmares. When he woke it was to an ache under his skin and the press of knives behind his knees, pushing him to run. A year ago, he would have. Most days, if he woke up with that sort of itch under his skin he would at least cram his feet into his shoes and take a run around campus (or around town) until he’d either worn himself down or outrun the impulse to flee. 

    But today was Sunday, and even on weekends spent on campus, Sundays were days where Neil did not have to deal with anyone - not even Andrew - if he didn’t want to. 

    ---

    On a day that Neil should be able to hang back and recuperate, things go from bad to worse when a particular freshman gets involved.
