chapter one - baby fox

At twenty-three years old, Rugged moves from a wheat field in Winnipeg to Vancouver, British Colombia. Having barely survived his first heartbreak by the moisturized hands of Frederick Davenport, Rugged is excited to become the fabulous gay man he was always meant to be. After creating a profile on "ManTrap," a popular gay hook-up site, Rugged learns he is a small goldfish in a sea filled with gay piranhas. After his dream to find a husband takes a major hit, Rugged questions whether he should go back to the small town he came from.
