Absent Without Leave
Once bitten/twice shy, Aiden O'Leary, proprietor of O'Leary's Pub, swore to never be the other man. He put up with his ex's infidelities and accusations of the same for far longer than he should have, all in the name of 'for better, for worse' and what he thought was true love.
Home on leave, Special Forces Weapons Sergeant Jake Hardison stops by the pub for a beer on his way to the local motel and is blown away by the changes time has wrought to his high school crush.
Aiden is shocked to discover that Jake isn't quite as straight as Aiden had always thought. Sparks fly between Aiden and Jake when Aiden offers Jake his spare bed...room, but when Aiden learns of Jake's not-quite-divorced status, he sends him away for the four days it'll take for Jake's divorce to become final.
Two days later, Jake goes absent without much of a by-your-leave to Aiden. Aiden's left feeling betrayed and foolish. Again.
When Jake returns to Ten Rigs, will Aiden forgive and forget?
