When my old high school teammate invites me to stay on his family farm, it’s the solution to my financial woes. I never imagined it might also be the answer to my loneliness.
Allen Hale Jr. wasn’t the first number I tried for help. It’s been years since I’ve even thought of him. But he answered on the first ring, and hours later, we’re still talking like we’re 16 again, goofing off after the big game.
I don’t doubt his sincerity when he offers to help. His big heart shines clearly through, even at my most jaded. I don’t think twice about ditching the big city and moving back to the countryside.
The same place I couldn’t get far enough away from when I was younger.
Because I was never much of a country boy. I was prepared to hate every second of life on a farm, just like I did growing up.
But I don’t. There’s every reason I should be miserable and only one reason I’m not.
And his name is Allen Hale Jr
Allen Hale Jr
I know what people whisper about my lack of interest in women and the rumors about me. But the truth is, there’s only one guy who ever made my heart stir. Any interest in men went with him when he drove out of town, and out of my life.
But now he’s back. Not just in my life, but under my roof. Mere feet away. And all the things I ever wanted to say to him come rushing back. And all the reasons I never said them feel less and less important.
Now there’s only one thing that holds me back, one fear that keeps me silent. That if he doesn’t feel the same way, he might leave again. That this time he might leave because of me.
It’s the last thing I want.
And yet risking it might be the only way to get what I do want....
