Constantine thought he would never regret leaving Crow behind after finding him in bed with his girlfriend when they were teenagers, but now Constantine is unable to stay away, helping Crow get back on his feet and reforging their old friendship into something a lot closer to love than hate. But Crow isn’t telling the whole truth behind his shooting and Constantine has lingering doubts he’s not entirely honest about, either — and it all might be enough to rip them apart forever.
