Xavier was beginning to cave in, and he wasn’t sure he could afford it. He didn’t even know Andy, for goodness sake! How could he even think about what their life together could be, how it would feel to wake up next to him in the morning, or even better, how the man would feel inside him?

Besides, he'd probably ruined any chances he had with the man with his little speech just now. It was probably for the best. He really didn’t want to come between Andy and his family. He wasn’t worth it.

Xavier huffed as he looked at the trees around him. He’d literally run out of Andy’s house and sought refuge in nature. The trees, the simple sounds of squirrels running around, had helped him calm down. He had been so angry when he had heard Lea talk like that to Andy. It wasn’t what she had said about him, but how she had treated Andy, really.

Xavier might not have been much, but his parents loved him dearly, and they never had any problems with him being gay. Shit, Lea had even threatened Andy to rat him out to Kameron, as if they were five-year-old kids fighting over a ball!

Still... if that’s what Andy’s family thought about their relationship, how could he accept it in good conscience?

“You’re thinking awfully hard there, man.”

Xavier twirled around, relieved to see it was the man from before, the one he’d met into Kameron’s back yard. That might not mean he was harmless, especially since he had obviously been spying on Kameron, but Xavier oddly trusted him. “Yeah. All this shifter stuff... it’s hard to wrap my head around it, especially if I add Andy’s family to it.”

The guy snorted. “Don’t mind Lea. She’s always been uptight like that. Unfortunately, she takes a lot from their father, his opinions on certain things included. Andy’s lucky the rest of his family isn’t like that.”

“The rest of his family?” Okay, so it was obvious Xavier didn’t know a lot about the man who was supposed to be his mate, but they had known each other for only a day, so it was normal. Right?

“Yeah. His mother is sweet, and he also has another sister and a brother. Twins. He’s the oldest.”

Xavier nodded, then realized he still didn’t know the guy’s name. “I’m Xavier.”


“Okay. So, what are you doing here?”

Zach nervously looked around as if he was expecting someone to jump from behind a tree. “I shouldn’t be here, really, but I wanted to thank you for not telling anyone you saw me out there.”

Xavier shrugged. “I don’t know what’s going on, and I didn’t want to intrude. I don’t think you’re a danger for Kameron, anyway, or at least I hope not. My instincts aren’t known to be spot on most of the time.”

The sadness in Zach’s eyes was so deep it was almost painful to watch. “You’re wrong. I am a danger for him, although I’m not the one who would hurt him.
