Sam and Hansen have the lake house to themselves for the holidays and they're making the most of it. It'd be perfect -- if Sam didn't know Hansen has way more on his mind than he's willing to discuss. As in serious life choices. All he can do is hold on tight and hope their first Christmas together won't be their last. A free, fluffy short story following the events of Equilibrium. Warnings and disclaimers: 1. Minor spoilers for Equilibrium, particularly in the area of the HEA or not question. It also takes place after "Jealousy", another free short. But the story stands alone, if you prefer to start with this as a sampler. Go for it! 2. This story contains NC-17 m/m sex practices, holiday festivities, a large bottle of Jack Daniel's, and a T-shirt kink moment. It is not for children, humbugs, or those opposed to sugarkink. 3. This ebook is not associated with Loose Id, LLC, the publishers of Equilibrium. It is a short promotional freebie extra from the author to the reader.
