He'd already made this mistake once, and he wasn't the type to repeat his mistakes. Once burned, twice shy, and all that. Oh yeah, and some wanker got that 'better to have loved and lost' bit backwards, too.

No, Claude Rains did not fall in love. He especially didn't allow himself to fall for dark-eyed, beautiful dreamers who wanted to save the world and were so naive they were going to be getting their hearts broken every time they turned around. No, he avoided them like the plague. Just like he had avoided human contact and friendship for the past seven years. He didn't need it. He didn't want it.

Or why he let himself be coaxed out of his clothes -- finally even his shirt, letting the boy see his scars and even touch and kiss them -- and into that eager, tight heat.

He didn't let himself fall in love or need anyone, and yet somehow he had and he did...
