    Summary

    Daniel da Silva comes face-to-face with the deadly consequences of making a mistake and turns to a bad childhood habit to cope—but it's not enough, and Archie Curtis doesn't know how to help.

    “I wish you wouldn’t,” said Archie, blue eyes shadowed in the gaslight. They were the only two left in the building.

    “Wouldn’t what?” snapped out Daniel.

    “With your hair. It looks painful.” Archie’s hands closed around Daniel’s with unbearable gentleness. Daniel released his hair as if it were on fire. Archie did not relinquish his hold. Daniel considered snatching his hands away, but could not bear the thought of coming across as a petulant child. He kept his hands limp in that damnably gentle grasp. His body seethed.

    Summary

    "Not as big as Richard's," David mused. "But it will do."

    "Oh, you won't be sitting on this one," Silas smirked. His voice had gone even deeper and rougher than usual. He turned and picked something up from the other side of the bed - a tangle of leather that looked like some kind of harness. A shiny wooden phallus was dangling from the straps. David blinked at it.
