I didn't think it'd turn out this way: my life story in a nutshell. Life, Karma, whatever—it was testing me. Pushing me to the limit of what I could endure and beyond.
But in the steaming pile my life had become, I felt it. The spark. Like my soul met its counterparts, or whatever the corny saying was. I didn't think it was possible. For a closeted guy, falling for not one but two men was never going to be easy, but I couldn't deny its truth. Mace and Rick were….
Then I had to leave. My sister needed me. Having a baby alone was out of the question and I couldn't wait to be an uncle. But going to stay with her in Florida meant leaving them. New Zealand and the USA couldn't be further apart.
I'm not a saint. I've screwed up more times than I can count. But I was trying to redeem myself. Gracie, my niece, needed me to be a better man. If only there was a way I could have both—men to love and a family close by.
This is my truth, and this is all I need.
