    Summary

    ... The rules are passed down through the community across generations... Don’t step into mushroom rings, don’t take directions from strangers, don’t harm any tree or wildlife under fair folk protection, don’t eat or drink anything anyone else offers you, but most importantly: never give your name to the fae.

    Summary

    The edict came at dawn:

    Patras was freeing her slaves.

    Laurent dismissed the unfortunate servant who’d been tasked to be their messenger, turned around in their bed, and kissed Damen soundly, feeling triumph light up his very core.

    Summary

    The first night Nicaise knocked on their bedroom door at near two in the morning, Laurent honestly considered it a victory. Instead of making Nicaise go into said bedroom, Laurent said, “Let’s go to the living room. You,” he pushed a finger to Damen’s chest, “will make us cocoa.”

    Damen laughed in disbelief and stole a kiss to Laurent’s forehead. “You’re lucky I love you,” he said, padding to the kitchen, and Laurent really was.

    (Or: Nicaise has a nightmare. The three of them deal with it efficiently enough.)

    Summary

    “Now that we’ve followed your plan, would you be averse to following mine? I had wanted to start by buying you a drink. And then if we got on, we’d talk all night long, and maybe I’d get your number. If you were amenable, tomorrow I’d meet you for coffee.”

    Laurent raised a skeptical eyebrow, despite the fluttering of his heart. “You do this with all of your potential hookups?” The slow progression to bed seemed counterproductive to the purpose of the app; even Laurent knew that.

    Damen grinned. “No. But I think you deserve to be courted. And call me old-fashioned, but I do enjoy a long, drawn out courtship.”

    The keen reader will have noticed that I still hadn’t answered Connor’s question. That first one he asked me, right at the start of all this: Was I gay?
