    Summary

    Neil is a successful author with a stalker who seems to know a little too much about his past. He needs a bodyguard for his upcoming book tour. Enter: Andrew Minyard.

    I've marked this as Graphic Descriptions of Violence out of an abundance of caution, but I don't even come near the source material here.

    “Kevin Day told me about you.” The corners of Neil’s mouth lift the barest degree. It should be an unassuming, polite smile. Should be.

    Andrew isn’t convinced. He hums and leans back in his seat. “You know Kevin.”

    “We go way back,” Neil explains. He’s not giving any signs that indicate he’s lying, but still. Kevin usually holds his liquor better than he holds his secrets but Andrew thought he knew everyone Kevin has known since Palmetto State and he’d remember if this guy had been in the Nest.

    “He’s never mentioned you,” Andrew says.

    “I rarely mention him,” Neil replies easily.

    Summary

    “How often do you need blood?”

    Neil wishes he’d stop saying it like that, like it’s an inevitability. It may be the truth, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. “Every few months.”

    Andrew’s breath brushes warm over his face, and Neil makes the mistake of looking down at his lips as he speaks. “Oh,” he murmurs. “That’s interesting. See, I’ve been asking around, and I have it on fairly good authority that most vampires go feral after a few weeks without a blood source.”

    Neil’s jaw tightens, and with the press of Andrew’s fingers against him, he knows the Fae can feel it. Abruptly, Neil jerks his head out of Andrew’s grip, taking a step back. He needs to breathe, and isn’t capable of thinking rationally when Andrew’s that close. “Well,” he says, frustration bleeding into his tone, “good thing I’m not most vampires.”

    Summary

    “I’m obsessive about everything,” Neil protests, sitting in a booth with the four upperclassmen he can stand. “What makes this obsession special?”

    “Okay, we get the Exy obsession, because you’re legitimately planning on going pro, and we get the Kevin obsession because he’s dedicated to teaching you to go pro, and we even get the Minyard obsession,” Dan says.

    “Shh,” Neil pleads desperately, hoping beyond hope that nobody heard that.

    “But the podcast has nothing to do with Exy! It’s half about music, and you don’t even like music that much,” Dan says. “It’s literally just music and a really weird guy talking about his homicidal impulses, and it sorta sounds like a joke, but on a much more real level it sounds like it’s absolutely not a joke and I would call the authorities if this guy gave any personal details at all,” Dan says.

    “It’s mostly a joke,” Neil offers, but it sounds weak to his own ears.

    --

    In which Andrew has a podcast, and Neil falls in love with him twice.
