With his freshman year of college over and summer already in the air, Lucas Brown is more than happy to have finished his spring semester with all A´s and Salem State´s official promise to continue funding his scholarships. Excited and relieved to take a break and begin his first college summer vacation, he´s spending his first few lazy days just sleeping in and half-heartedly unpacking the moving boxes at his new apartment. Well, his and his boyfriend´s, Dean Gray. Waking up late and going to bed much, much later, Lucas has never had it easier. And, as werewolves, he and Dean are taking their relationship slow, just as nature intended. Only, Dean just told Lucas that his grandmother is coming to visit, and she has a much more traditional idea of how an Omega and an alpha should be living together. An old werewolf from the prestigious Gray pack with a soft spot for her favorite grandson and a critical eye for Lucas, Grandma Gray isn´t about to let them off easily, especially when neither of them can seem to appease her with a good reason as to why they are not already mated to one another. As Lucas struggles to appease both his nagging future in-law and his frustrated boyfriend, he quickly learns that, sometimes, love is a lopsided balance of playing nice and growing a pair.

Seasons change, and so do fashion trends. But in this heartstring-tugging PsyCop short, what´s beneath the clothes matters most. Do clothes make the man? Jacob Marks cuts an impressive figure in his tailored suits, but Victor Bayne is another story. Nowadays, Vic does his ghosthunting in off-the-rack blazers, polyester blend slacks and cop shoes with nonskid soles. But back before he was a PsyCop - or even officially psychic - he rocked combat boots and a beat up biker jacket, and lots and lots of punk T-shirts. When he finds a faded tee in the back of a drawer, he´s eager to lob it in the trash. Jacob, however, finds himself waxing sentimental about Vic´s younger, more carefree days. This steamy 5000-word PsyCop short in Jacob´s voice takes place after PsyCop #6, GhosTV. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gomez Pugh.
