Studying magical science at the prestigious Kemet Academy is a privilege and dream come true for Teka, a poor student from D’mt. But focusing on school doesn’t mean xe can’t also admire Hasani, the handsome graduate student overseeing Teka’s work.
Then late one night at the school library, Teka runs Hasani and is completely astonished when the stern, quiet man xe knows by day acts so flirty and casual, it’s like he’s a different person. When the late night encounter leads to dating, Teka can scarcely believe xyr luck.
But the luck plays out when xe discovers why Hasani seems so different between night and day, a discovery that seems to have no resolution except heartache…
Warning: This story contains incest
I hadn’t known going into it about one of the taboo aspects of the story, which I think would have been good to know ahead of time (and I’m not really sure how to discuss it without spoilers). It didn’t necessarily bother me because there was no power imbalance, and it’s not really a hard limit or particularly upsetting for me. However, it’s not my usual kind of thing, and I think some others might be more bothered than I was.
