Life in the English countryside is better than Jasper Reed could have ever hoped. His garden is flourishing, he has Nathaniel Travers in his bed most nights, and his lover has become his neighbor.
When Nate suggests they play ‘the physician and his patient’, Jasper eagerly agrees. The erotic game proves just the thing to fill the rainy summer afternoon. Yet Nate’s request after their game is over gives Jasper pause, stirring up old doubts and making him question if he is indeed first in Nate’s heart.
This short story is a sequel to His Client.
