Can a shattered man ever piece himself back together?
Paul doesn't think so.
The IED that took his lover and his best friend destroyed Paul's capacity to feel. When he witnesses Xavier's life shattering around him, no one is more surprised than Paul when he steps in to rescue the broken man. Passion flares amidst the budding friendship but Paul doesn't know if whatever he and Xavier can build will be enough to fill the holes in his soul. He needs to try anyway. Xavier deserves that much. Perhaps he does too.
