Tanner turned around when he heard the door to his room open and close and he had to catch himself before he gasped; the guy who entered and introduced himself was huge. Tanner was 6’1”, but he was extremely slender. This guy was taller and his muscles were huge. Clearing his throat and offering his hand, the blond human boy responded, “Hi Keith, I’m Tanner Koskinen”, he looked at the bags Keith was carrying, “Looks like we must be roommates”.
Looking the guy over, Tanner absentmindedly reached for the talisman he’d been given, to guard against the great charisma all paranormals, and gave it a rub between his thumb and forefinger. He had to wonder if Keith were some sort of paranormal; the guy was certainly handsome and Tanner felt a bit shy around him already. Of course, Tanner was a little shy around everyone at first, but this was different. He had a secret he never told anyone and barely admitted to himself; while Tanner did find girls attractive and desirable, he felt the same way about boys. His fair face flushed thinking about it. Not that either one mattered really; he had always been so busy taking care of his family, he had never dated, never had sex, never even kissed another person intimately.
