When Andrew Craig dies, he leaves his brother Jason a list of places that he wanted to visit but couldn’t. Attending a school reunion, London, Stonehenge, these are all on the list and Jason is determined to cross everything off and work through his grief at the same time.
Closeted soap actor Mark Wesley is shocked when a blast from the past looks him up, and devastated when he realizes he will never have a chance to make things right.
Together Jason and Mark agree to work on the list. But what happens when Jason and Mark grow closer, when passion and even love begins to grow?
Was this what Andrew wanted to happen all along between his brother and his friend?
Jason pressed again. “What did he say, Mark? Tell me.”
Mark looked directly into his eyes, and their gaze held. Even in the chaos of music and lights, Mark was absolutely focused on Jason, and Jason could see the strength in the other man as he reined himself in. Tension turned to calm, and anger slid to patience.
“Nothing new, just the same shit he used to say to me at school.” The music stopped; someone had apparently decided the little standoff by the photo display needed an audience. This was probably what most of the attendees came for tonight, not to see Ted Krantz and Mark go head to head specifically, but to see more of the high school drama spill into adult life.
Jason lowered his voice and was aware of the flash of a cameras around them. He could see the headlines now. Soap Star in Face-off with High School Bully. “Mark, you need to leave it.”
“Seems to me that Andrew wanted me to right a wrong here,” Mark replied just as quietly.
“What if he didn’t? What if he just wanted you to show off your flashy car and your money and success and prove the bullies wrong that way?”
Mark tilted his head. “You really think that?”
“I don’t know,” Jason answered as truthfully as he could. He didn’t know what his brother had been thinking with these letters and instructions. He called the list his bucket list for others to complete, but Jason knew there was more to all of this. He just couldn’t get to the core of what it was.
“So Mr. B-lister, you have something to say to me?” Ted said snidely, smirking. He loved playing to an audience, and he looked around at some of them with that knowing grin.
Mark pulled himself straight, which still left him a couple inches short of Ted’s fleshy mass, and finally yanked his arm free of Jason’s hold. “Yep,” Mark began. “I have plenty to say.”
