On this very rainy weekend, I’m deep into editing my fabulous gay romance. Kevin’s denial of his true sexual identity ends soon after he meets Teak. It comes with tumult and pain. It comes with great joy and freedom.
In some ways, Kevin and Teak have been on similar paths. Teak has lived a bisexual lifestyle but prefers men. Kevin has lived a hetero lifestyle but has been strongly attracted to men. He’s just never acted on those impulses.
Neither man could make a definitive choice about a life partner.
Their mutual confusion ends in each others’ arms.
Former lovers get hurt in the process. Kevin and Teak’s compassion toward these people reveals the honesty and dignity with which they want to live. You’ll shed a few tears with the innocent victims but know that doing the right thing sometimes hurts.
Always patient, always steadfast in his knowledge of who Kevin really is and how deeply he loves him, Teak guides him through his coming out in the gentlest, most loving way. He acknowledges the fear his lover feels about making such a drastic change because he has felt similarly at times. When their love affair gets splashed all over the celebrity gossip pages, their relationship could turn ugly. Kevin has to choose between a life laced with lies and a love so genuine and true.
The photographs of Teak hanging in his gallery haunt Kevin.
