Devon is driving through the English countryside when his car spins out of control. Lost in the snow and the dark, he knocks at the door of the only house in the area. Luc, owner and only resident of the mysterious house, takes him in and offers him a place to stay for the night, if Devon obeys the rules of the house. Devon promptly disobeys, of course, ending up in hot water and trying to decide if Luc’s response is punishment or promise. (M/M)
