    Summary

    AU. 1996. Selling forged artwork isn’t the life Kirk thought he’d have at thirty-three years old, and he’s looking for the exit.

    So when he meets famed postmodern artist Lars Ulrich, Kirk has a problem on his hands. Because Lars is sweet and funny and charming, and he has no idea that Kirk’s been selling forgeries of his work.

    But Lars knows someone’s ripping him off, and as the two grow closer, it’s a matter of time before Kirk’s dangerous secret comes out…

    Summary

    James stomps his cleats into the grass, fiddles with the hem of his shirt. With the sun against his back, the salt of sweat and sunflower seeds in his mouth, it feels as if he’s hardly been gone.

    Summary

    The woods are dark, thick with foliage and the interweaving masses of tree trunks. Far above, the moon shines a watery-yellow, full and round between the trees, stars twinkling in the velvet-black sky. There's nothing there.

    And yet, it feels as if something's watching him.

    Kirk shivers, closing the door.
