When Likotsi and Fabiola meet again on a stalled subway train months later, Fab asks for just one cup of tea. Likotsi, hoping to know why she was unceremoniously dumped, agrees. Tea and food soon leads to them exploring the city, and their past, with Fab slowly revealing why she let Likotsi go.

The cabin is brimming with people, but he feels utterly alone. Until he catches Mr. Tall, Blond, and Gorgeous raiding their garden. Mykhail is an astrophysics student, he makes John’s gaydar ping like crazy, and he thinks he knows what caused the devastation.
