To fill a rainy summer afternoon, Nathaniel Travers suggests to his lover, Jasper Reed, that they play ‘the physician and his patient’. Jasper eagerly agrees to the erotic game. Yet Nate’s request after their game is over gives Jasper pause, stirring up old doubts and making him question if he is indeed first in Nate’s heart. This short story is a sequel to His Client.
