The specter of Don't Ask, Don't Tell hovers ominously over the romance between former USAF Thunderbird pilots Sebastian Marchetti and Ryder Beckett.
Sebastian Marchetti has spent his life doing two things: hiding his sexuality and flying. After leaving the USAF, Bas meets active-duty pilot Ryder Beckett. Bas loves Ryder enough to be his dirty little secret. But Ryder loves his man so much that he'll risk court-martial to be with Bas.
This story is part of the print anthology Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
