The short story by Gavin Atlas was published inside the Anthology Hard Hats edited by Neil Plakcy. The common theme of the anthology is the construction workers world, and in Gavin Atlas 15 pages story, Demitri, the owner of a construction company named Hercules to the Rescue, is trying to restore an house while the lawyer who owns the house is on vacation and his son is using the house as personal playground.

Dylan, the young man, is a college student with very little propension for studying and a lot of interest in find a sugar daddy to maintain him. While his father is gone, Dylan is having a relationship with the man's boss, with the little and improbable hope of a job's offer. The man is also inviting friends over to 'use' Dylan as their personal whore, and Demitri is tired to see all this, above all since he eavesdrops a phone call in which Dylan told his forbidden fantasy about him.

Like in the previous short story by Gavin Atlas I read, there is a twink type of character who has no problem to consider sex as a recreational activity; in this case is a 'little' better since Dylan has no a psychological problem, he is only lazy! He thinks that using sex he can work less for what he wants. And also Demitri is a better character since he, as reward to Dylan to access the boy's grace, offers to the boy an alternative to a life as kept man... I'm not sure that Dylan will take the chance, but still is better than nothing.
