Leo O'Neil was captured while trying to rescue his mate, Bastion Dane, from enemy territory. Weak and trapped, he almost loses hope of escape until Bastion rushes into his cell and rescues him! It wasn't exactly the way he'd planned for this to go down, but he'll take it, and now they have to get out of enemy territory before they're caught again, separated, and killed. Even when they make it to safety, Leo has some bad news to break to Bastion. The reason why he avoided his mate, and avoided claiming him for so long, is because Leo doesn't belong in Bastion's timeline. To claim him, to be with him and build a family with him, will mean that he can never return to his time, and giving up the revenge that he's wanted for his entire life, and he's not sure if he loves Bastion enough to do that.
