All these questions circled in my head as I fell asleep **** 38 Love's Indecision, by Joyee Flynn A few days later I was heading to Nate and Lance's room to check on how Lance was doing now that he was out of the infirmary. We didn't start his post-trans training program until tomorrow but I was praying for him to have changed into a better man with his new body. " I heard Nate yell from down the hall.

He swiped at my sword weakly as he turned and tried to get out of my way; instead I was able to nick his left shoulder. When I moved towards him, he feebly tried to thrust his sword at my chest, which was exactly what I had hoped he would do.
