Magic can be a dangerous thing, as Aquan finds out to his peril. He doesn't understand the power of the crystals his lover, Liet, uses with such confidence, nor does he really know the power of the Gods who give and take that power with careless ease.
When Liet returns to their home after a mission for those very Gods and finds his Aquan frozen in time, he pledges his life and works to his Masters if they will only give his love life again. They agree, but only for one night a year, the longest night. The winter Solstice.
That has to be enough for Liet and Aquan, a fate they accept, coming together that one night a year to live and love as they wish they could do for all time. So what do they do when Liet grows old and Aquan is still as young as the day he was cursed? Sweet and poignant, this tale is a true gift. Don't miss it.
