“I learned a long time ago that nothing is free, not even help.” ~ Blaze
Almost getting killed in a gay bashing should have been one of the worst moments of my life, but with everything I've been through, it was just another day, except for the gorgeous man who stepped in to save me. There is something about Galen that draws me in and makes me want know him, and the more time I spend with him, the more I feel free to be myself. Galen doesn't seem to know what he wants, but I'm a man who stays true to himself, and Galen seems to be someone worth taking a chance on.
"Then you happened and all you have to do is touch me and I lose myself." ~ Galen
I never thought I'd stumble on an attempted murder, but that's exactly what happened one night while I was trying to get home. After chasing away the assailants and helping the enigmatic young victim home I tried to put the incident out of my mind, but I couldn't get him out of my head. I might not have ever thought about being with a man before, but the more time I spend with Blaze, the more I learn about who I really am. Blaze has scars that run deep, but as he opens up to me I find myself questioning everything I thought I wanted, and wondering if I'm a good enough man to give him what he needs.

As Galen drove us to his apartment I stared out of the window, lost in thought.
Tonight had been the most fun I’d ever had with someone. I wasn’t proud to admit that a part of me had worried Galen would act like we were just guy friends hanging out, but he’d been nothing but open. He’d held my hand in public, kissed my cheek, and as far as I could tell he hadn’t spent the night looking over his shoulder to make sure people weren’t looking at us.
He was being incredible, but there was still that nagging voice in my head that told me this couldn’t be real. Galen was from a well-respected, if not douchebag family. He was educated, successful and in a league I couldn’t even see, let alone be a part of.
I was a castoff with a mismatched family I’d made after my own had abandoned me. I’d spent years whoring myself out to make enough money to survive, and I was a perpetual loser who barely managed to stay afloat, let alone move forward or up.
Galen deserved someone better than me. Hell, everyone deserved someone better than me, and I was fooling myself if I thought for one second that he wouldn’t eventually see the truth.
I was tainted. There was no way around it. What I’d done, what I’d been forced to do had tainted me. Every time I’d let some random guy with twenty bucks blow me, or fuck me for fifty, I’d branded myself. Every time I’d stuck that fucking needle in my arm to try and chase happiness in a high that was killing me, I’d destroyed even more of myself. When I’d used the bottle to dull the pain that only got deeper with every drink, I’d made myself nothing.
It didn’t matter that I was clean now. It made no difference that I didn’t use my body to get what I needed anymore. None of that meant shit because it couldn’t change the past. It couldn’t erase the truth.
