Because I have too many ideas and no time to execute them
Mako hires a new farmboy on his pig farm, Jamison Fawkes, who’s basically eveyrthing but a farmer’s boy. He’s hiding on Mako’s farm from some shady types, working so he has a roof over his head and it’s the first time he’s had a proper job, before he was always stealing and getting by on scraps.
Jamie has to learn everything on the farm from scrap, and screws up a lot at the start.
tries his best to help Mako however, and he eventually turns out to
be a big help at the farm, taking some wear out of Mako’s frankly
overworked body. They are quick to fall in love, but while Mako wants
to move on, Jamie seems withdrawn, though there is a lot of flirting,
gentle touching and a few kisses. They spend a lot of time twisting
and turning around the issue while there’s definitely sparks flying.
Eventually Jamie comes clean about his past, thinking Mako will be mad and not accept him anymore, but Mako only appreciates his honesty, and loves him all the same.
Jamie’s past ultimately comes back to haunt him, someone showing up at Mako’s place and threatening to set fire to the pig stall if Jamie doesn’t comply. Jamie agrees but Mako ultimately kills the intruder, effectively removing the last link to Jamie’s past. They agree to bury the body and never speak of the whole thing again, starting a new life together on a new farm on the other side of the country.
