Two college-aged guys are taking a nap on a bed, holding each other.
It’s just been me and my mom for as long as I can remember. She’s great and I don’t mind having to pitch in. I got a job young and studied really hard to get a scholarship to college. I never had time to date, but wasn’t really tempted by anyone… until I started tutoring for extra cash in college. To my surprise, it was a guy that got me flustered. I looked at other guys and girls to see if I was just a late bloomer, but they did nothing for me. Just Xander, and I don’t even think he likes guys that way.
