Summary: Doyle wakes up in a warehouse to find himself injured, suffering from amnesia, and apparently involved in a bombing plot with a man named Foster. He soon meets Williams--a tall, dark, beautiful (and engagingly modest) mercenary arms dealer. Doyle tries to find out who he is, what's going on, and why he instinctively trusts Williams, even though he clearly shouldn’t.

Notes: Thank you to elizabethoshea, O Anonymous One, and dorinda for hand-holding, encouragement, beta-work, formatting...everything, really! Thank you to my wonderful, inspiring, incredibly patient artist Maerrie/hermine. (You all are in for a treat!) Thank you to our fabulous (and also incredibly patient) mods callistosh65 and przed. And, finally, a special thank you to my entire F'list (and Circle) for encouragement duty above and beyond. *g*

This has no real relation to the story, but I was repeatedly listening to Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" during crucial pondering time with this story. So for me, at least, the story is infused with that song. (In Bodie's perspective. *g*)

I've only just read your story as it takes me ages to read online and I've very slowly been indulging myself and making my way through all these lovely, long stories!

I really loved this, especially in the first half when you showed us Bodie's deep feelings for Ray in so many little ways - for me that was really erotic and attractive. And in turn, the way Ray sensed that somehow he was connected to 'Williams' and safe with him. Beautifully done.

And then Ray's dawning realisation and Bodie's gentle hesitancy were equally well done and left me, the reader, feeling happy and satisfied. Given your tiredness and the many strains, stresses and distractions of your non-writing life, I really don't know how you managed to produce such good work but I hope you got some enjoyment from it as well? Thanks so much for this.

Hey there! I'm so glad you enjoyed this! And that you picked up on Bodie's emotions, as seen through Doyle's non-comprehending point of view. *g* I really like it when the reader understands more than the point of view character does, and especially when it's something as terrific (to me) as the bond between the lads. *g*

I did enjoy working on this, and thankfully the mods were very generous with me regarding deadlines. It's wonderful to hear that others like the story--thank you for commenting!
