    Summary

    Hank is 53 years old. He's never had a soul mark, doesn't have a soul mate. And he's fine with that. He cheated the system once and it cost him everything he had. Never again.

    When August 2038 rolls around and the number '313 248 317 - 51' appears on his arm in perfect Cyberlife Sans font, exactly where a soul mark should be, Hank wants nothing to do with it.

    Summary

    "And try as he might to divert away from the subject at all possible costs later that evening, Connor had slid into his lap like a cat in the middle of Cheers reruns and done enough negotiating with his mouth and his hands that Hank had finally relented. He’d been bought out by nothing more than Connor’s insistent kisses and a solid handy, and in the end had reluctantly agreed to take off the following long weekend to celebrate his fucking birthday."

    (Or: Hank's turning 54, and with Connor's urging decides that they could use a long weekend spent at a remote lake house on the Upper Peninsula.)

    Summary

    Hank pulls back from their hug first. “You got a place to stay?” he asks.

    It could be easy. He could say no, and Connor is certain Hank will invite him over. He’ll insist Connor takes his bed while he crashes on the couch. He’ll blow up the inflatable mattress Connor saw stacked in his crowded closet.

    Hank will move heaven and earth to accommodate him, and that’s why Connor can’t. He’s put Hank through one hell of a week, and he can’t add this to the pile.

    “Yes, I do,” Connor says, pretending he doesn’t see Hank’s disappointment. “I have a private suite in Cyberlife Tower.”
