Good short m/m sequel to Chainbreaker , which unfortunately lacks the charm of the original. In this one, our San Francisco bike messenger and his Gulf War veteran boyfriend become frustrated about living behind a curtain in the corner of someone's living room.
A short, sweet placeporn piece featuring two guys in love, and a city full of inappropriately priced real estate.
