In the Pale Moonlight by Sunny Moraine

A short paranormal/historical novella set in an undefined country, probably England or Scotland or Ireland; actually aside for an epilogue there are only two men in all the story and they have both similar experience in their past: shunned by their parents and families since they prefer the company of men. The only difference is that Rhys, older and stronger, has his own land where he can roam at night and living in a peaceful, but isolated way during the day; James instead, barely eighteen years old, has no mean of substance on him, and when Rhys finds him in his land, the boy is almost freezed to death.

Rhys’s first instinct would be to kill the stranger, but then loneliness makes him take another decision; he brings the kid at home with him, like someone would do with a stray pet. He feeds and shelters him, but when James doesn’t want to share his own story, so Rhys doesn’t reveal his true nature. Day after day they establish a good cohabitation, but there a sexual tension underneath, something neither James or Rhys speaks aloud but that is clear will lead them towards a decision point. In a clear similitude, the sexual tension will cross path with the true nature of Rhys which needs to be freed, and that will be the moment for both James and Rhys to take that decision.

The sex that will come next will be a little awkward, no one of them is experienced and most they go on by instinct, but it will be good; so good that there will be only one logical decision to take, one that will allow James and Rhys to be together forever, so that loneliness will be no more an issue for both of them.
