Chapter 18

Pete walked back to the bed with a beer in either hand and handed one to Alec with an accompanying wink. He couldn’t help but examine Pete’s rampant dick.

“Like something you see?”

This time Alec refused to become embarrassed by the teasing Pete was giving him. He traced his cold bottle over the underside of his thick cock. It surprised him when Pete did nothing more than flex his cock. With that he gave Pete a studied gaze. “I’m liking everything. Turn around and let me take a look at your butt.”

A deep laugh came from Pete before he turned around and flexed his ass at Pete. “See anything you might like to play with.”

Alec ran his hand over the globes of Pete’s butt. Tight muscle under his fingertips had waves of pleasure flowing through him. When Pete wiggled it again, Alec took the foreplay to a new level. He moved them around until Pete stood beside the bed with his chest across the mattress and ass in the air. Alec took charge of the moment.

“Spread it for me. I want to see your tight pink hole.”

Pete reached back and pried his ass open before glancing back at Alec. “You like that? Think you could find something to do?”

Without comment, he grabbed his beer from the nightstand, leaned forward and dribbled s tiny stream of the amber liquid into Pete’s crack. Alec lunged forward and licked at Pete’s butt like a dying man. It didn’t take long before Pete moved in symphony with Alec’s flicking tongue.

The delicious teasing lasted for years, or at least that was the feeling he seemed be enjoying. Alec dropped lower and ran over at Pete’s taint. He kept up the steady attention until he shivered from Alec’s attention. A few more seconds passed as Alec drove Pete ever closer to coming. Alec didn’t want to push Pete any further than things seemed to be moving. He resigned himself to helping Pete reach his orgasm and leave it at that, especially for an early connection between them. Then Pete whimpered and almost screamed.

“Fuck me! Give me some of that dick.”

Alec smiled to himself but moved into position. He bounced the bulging head of his cock against Pete’s swelling hole. He grabbed the bottle of lube and smeared a heavy coating over his bulging shaft. Once the sounds of wet cock filled the room, he dribbled more of the clear gel onto the crack of Pete’s ass. He ran his finger down his butt before sinking it deep inside Pete.

He continued to ready Pete for the fucking he’d planned. By the time he had three fingers ramming into Pete’s sweet ass, leaving him limp against the bed. He slipped between Pete’s legs and pressed his cock against Pete’s used opening. He eased himself inside, loving the sensation of Pete’s tight ass surrounding him. Soon he reached his depth and paused to keep from nutting. He draped himself over Pete’s back and enjoyed a thrill he hadn’t had the chance to enjoy in a long time.

After enjoying the sensations, he fucked Pete. Slowly at first then with more strength, he reached the point where he slammed his cock into Pete. With each thrust their skin slapped together and with the passage of several minutes Alec’s desire grew. He reached under Pete and tweaked his nipples. With that maneuver, Pete bucked under him like an unbroken stallion.

The combination sent Alec roaring closer. It took little time now before he was close to his finale. Then Pete shook and sent his first spray across the bed. The stimulation was the little push he needed to come. The two of them worked between the two of them until each of them reached their final volley. Alec fell limp across Pete and whispered, “That was amazing.”

Pete sighed. “That was beyond amazing.”

Chapter 17

The credits rolled past as the movie ended. He squirmed a little and realized he had stretched across the sofa with his head in Pete’s lap. Where his hand rested on Alec’s shoulder created a connection that pulsed through his body. He laid still enjoying the intimacy until Pete slipped his fingers over Alec’s hair and smiled.

“How did you enjoy the movie?”

He chuckled and shook his head. “I’m afraid I blew that part of the night and slept through the last half. Sorry about that.”

It didn’t seem to matter with Pete. He seemed content with how things had progressed. At least so far.

They met each other’s gaze before Pete winked at Alec. “You’re really cute. Would you like to spend the night?”

There was a flutter in Alec’s stomach a staying the night with Pete. He didn’t hesitate long before giving his answer. “I’d love to spend the night.” He hesitated then plunged into the what he didn’t want to jump into. Alec sighed, dropped his head then continued in a soft voice. “I ain’t all that much to look at while you’re fucking hot. I’d enjoyed being with you and want it to continue, but I’m not interested in a one-night stand.”

Pete leaned close enough until Alec shook at the musk coming from the man who was oh so close. With their faces inches apart Pete whispered. “I think you’re amazingly hot guy and I’m not interested in a one-night stand either.” He ran his hand across Alec’s cheek. It only took a second for him to enjoy the sensations generated by the touch. When Pete’s breath wafted over Alec’s face, leaving him ready for more.

Alec struggled to steady himself as Pete drew a short distance away. Alec shivered as his cock flexed inside his jeans. He was beginning to know what his hopes were for the evening and he hoped he could explain his feelings to Pete without seeming to be a pain in the ass.

Pete’s smile grew more charming with each passing second until Alec couldn’t resist taking charge of the situation for at least a short time. He took Pete by the shoulder and guided them closer until their lips touched with a softness Alec found crackled through his body. The initial touch became more heated as Alec’s embrace went tighter. It was only a short time when they had landed on the bed and writhed in each other’s arms.

Alec sat on Pete and gasping for air. As he could focus, he realized Pete was unbuttoning his shirt. He bit his lip to keep from crying out as Pete played with his exposed nipples. By the time several minutes of foreplay passed, Alec was ready to give Pete whatever he wanted in the realm of sexual pleasure. They rolled across the bed and Alec tugged at Pete’s shirt until he tossed to land beside Alec’s.

Their exploration became more heated when Pete reached between them and squeezed Alec’s package. A few seconds later Pete was enthusiastic about groping hardening cock. Alec threw his hand over his head and grabbed the headboard while Pete worked him until he was reaching the edge of his climax.

Soon Alec’s cock stretched down the leg of his jeans. Pete straddled him and rocked back and forth while Alec strained to keep from exploding. His eyes flew open when Pete pinched his hardened nipples and twisted them between his fingers.

“Fuck! You’re going to make me come.”

Pete tugged at them again, then let them go and attacked them with his teeth and lips. His work had Alec thrusting upward against Pete, climbing nearer his release. Then he growled when Pete stopped his foreplay.

“Ah, fuck. Don’t stop.”

Pete cupped his hand under Alec’s bulge. “I want to see what you hid down here.”

Alec lifted himself to his elbows as Pete opened his jeans. He groaned as the zipper went lower until his bush and the base of his cock were exposed. Pete grabbed Alec’s dick and worked his hand down its length. Once he reached its tip, a low whistle came from his lips.

“Damn! You’re hung like a fucking horse.”

A flush of heat rolled over Alec as Pete slid his pants lower until his dick popped free. Pete tugged his foreskin then released it smiling as he did. “Damn! Let’s see what we can do with this thing.”

Before Alec could comment, Pete grabbed his cock, and he became engulfed in the best hand job of his life. His shaft became hard as granite with a stream of precum flowing down its side. By the time Pete had added additional strokes, Alec was flopping on the mattress like a freshly caught fish on a sandbar. Alec growled and his body tensed.

The first volley of white left a trail of cum over them. The grunting sounds from Alec grew louder while he painted them with semen. With a final tensioning of his muscles, a slow trail of cum flowed across Pete’s hand.

Pete licked the musky semen from his hand like an ice cream cone. An expression of lust built on his face as he squeezed Alex’s cock. “Ready for round two?” Pete asked.

Excerpt

Venin stood under the dome of the chapel, the waters of the Orn rushing past the small island to crash overthe edge of the crater rim, where they fell a thousand meters to the broken cityof Errian below.

The Erriani chapel was different from what he was used to back home. The Gaelani chapel in Gaelan had sat at the top of a tall pillar of stone, open to the night sky, a wide space of grass and trees that intertwined in a natural dome through which moonlight filtered down to make dappled shadows on the ground.

This chapel, instead, was a wonder of streaming sunlight, the columns a polished eggshell marble with glimmering seams of gold. Red creeper vines climbed up the columns, festooned with clusters of yellow flowers that gave off a sweet scent.

Both were bright and airy, but the Erriani chapel lay under a dome supported by fluted marble columns, a painted arch of daytime sky and the rose-colored sun blazing overhead.

The last time heâ d gone to chapel had been with Tazim, before his untimely death.

Longbefore the troubles that roiled the world now.

Something drew him back. A need to reconnect with his past. To bridge the gap between then and now, betweenwho he was and who he had become. Taz would have liked this place.

The chapel here had survived the attack, while much of Errian had not. The city below was a jumble of broken corrinder, the multistory plants that were the mainbuilding stock for the city. They would grow again, but the sight of the cityâ s beautiful white towers laid low struck him to the core.

So had Gaelan looked, after the flood.

Venin turned back to the chapel and unlacedhis boots, baring his muscular calves before he approached the fountain that splashed at its center. The cool flagstone beneath his feet sent a shiver up hisspine, and green moss filled the gaps between the stones.

Some builder whose name was lost to time had tapped into the river itself to make the fountain run, and the water leapt into the air with a manic energy around the golden statue of Erro, before falling back down to the pool.

Venin knelt atthe fountainâ s edge on one of the well-worn pads, laid his hands in the shallow water, and let his wings rest over himself, making a private place to pray.

Erro and Gael, spare us from danger and lift us up into the sky with your powerful wings. He gave Erro deference, being that this was his chapel, but he hoped Gael would hear him too. The god of his own people had beenknown to intervene in mortal affairs before, and if what Quince had told them about these ithaniwas true, they would need all the help they could get.

Veninâ s wings warmed.

He looked up in astonishment to see the statue of Erro giving off an intense golden glow. His mouth dropped open, and hestood and stared at its beautiful male curves and muscles. Maybe the gods were answering him.

Venin reached up and touched the statueâ s outstretched hand. The shock knocked him backward onto his ass, and he hit the ground hard, slamming into one of the marble columns.

Venin groaned, stunned, and reached back to feel his wings and spine. He seemed to be in one piece.

Tazwould have laughed his ass off at the whole thing.

After a moment he sat upcautiously. He wrapped his arms around his legs and stared up at the statue, hischin on his knees.

The glow was gone.

Did I imagine it? He stood and felt the back of his head. A lump was already forming there. Thatâ s gonna leave a mark.

Something had changed. Venin 

Chapter 16

Alec stared out the wide expanse of glass, enjoying the twinkling lights of the city spread before him. He’d always enjoyed stargazing since he could remember. At home, the manmade illumination was few and far between and he loved to camp in the more remote areas. Sprawled under the western sky he could enjoy the elements of nature with no interference. But what lay in front of him was remarkable too.

The multilane interstate highways reached intersections of motion and color that reminded Alec of arteries and veins which joined and meshed together before shooting into the cardinal directions, plus a few more.

“Cool isn’t it? I always try to get this room. The sunsets are phenomenal.”

Alec peered over his shoulder at his date and grinned. “This whole day has been mind-blowing but we’re too late for the sunset.”

“How about a glass of wine? We could cuddle on the couch and enjoy the fireplace?”

A ripple of attraction washed over him as he considered the proposal. But the thought of Pete’s touch had his body aroused. A second later his fantasy occurred, and Pete wrapped his masculine arms around Alec. The contact had him responding like a randy teenager. Pete traced his hand along the top of Alec’s jean. His breath came in gasps as Pete eased out Alec’s shirt and slipped across his now burning skin. They continued for several minutes with Alec’s ardor building.

Pete lifted his hands free with a tender kiss just under Alec’s earlobe. He whispered, “We’ve got all night. Let’s slow down a little.”

He nodded in agreement, letting Pete seat him on the couch. Once Alec settled into place, he turned to the refrigerator and pulled out a bottle of white wine and set it beside a platter of cheeses. Alec considered the varieties for a minute before trying one. The smooth buttery flavor spread through his taste buds. Alec liked food but realized almost his tastes were simpler than Pete.

He made a second selection and this time the cheese had a deeper taste. “That one’s good. Stronger, but still tasty. I’ve never had this many types,” Alec said.

“What kinds do you have?”

Alec had to chuckle. “Most of the cheese I eat comes in individually wrapped slices.”

This time it was Pete’s turn to laugh. “I loved that stuff when I was a kid. Grilled cheese sandwiches were my favorite lunch. It melts like nothing else.”

Alec blushed, feeling backwoods in his lack of sophistication. He stammered, afraid he’d shared too much of his rural living. The quiet stretched out with Alec trying to decide how to save the date. The silence thickened but as Alec moved to leave, Pete sat beside him, chose a chunk of white cheese and fed it to Alec.

Alec froze as the flavor filled his mouth. The almost sour tang was unique. He turned to Pete and cocked his eyebrows. Pete chuckled and fed him another bite. “It’s feta cheese. It’s made from sheep’s milk. But regardless, I love the stuff.” He held the platter out to Alec until he gathered up samples of everything. Then Pete focused on the video selection, found a comedy and curled against Alec.

It wrapped them in laughter before they had made it past the first scene.

Chapter 15

Alec’s emotional equilibrium was screwed up after spending only a few hours with Pete. They were having a wonderful time at the midway and he loved the affection Pete showed him. He couldn’t seem to keep his hands off. If there were any of ‘those’ looks, Alec was too focused on his date. He glanced around and smiled to find they were at the gate for the ferris wheel. He shivered when he felt Pete wrap his arm around his waist.

Alec grinned. “Tonight has been fun. Thanks.”

Pete gave him a grin and kissed his cheek. Alec was oblivious to any mumbling from the people surrounding them. Pete played it better than Alec had seen before. He chose the biggest and most obvious of the rough crowd and blew him a kiss. The little mob let out a collective growl and turned on the pair.

“Button it up!”

It took Alec a second before he realized the command came from the carny running the ride. He held the thugs in a contemptuous glare. The baseball bat he held in his other hand made his intent clear.

Alec read the thugs developing around them. To his surprise, a number of other carnival workers were sprinkled through the crowd. The locals didn’t seem very happy about the bullies either. Alec waited to see how this would play out.

Some kind of self-preservation kicked in. They had already lost half their thugs when the ride operator made a threatening move toward them and spun the bat.

“It’s time for you boys to go home. We don’t want any more of your crap.”

Down to the ringleader and a few more, they backed away one slow step at a time. They’d reached the edge of the crowd and someone moved toward them. They left at a run. Once they disappeared into the fair goers, he turned to the crowd.

“Next round is free. We don’t want people like that to ruin the fair excitement. Line up! Don’t be shy,” he motioned the pair closer. Alec’s apprehension grew by the second, but he stayed beside Pete.

“I mean you two. Please. Front of the line,” the ride operator said.

Pete looked at Alec with a gleam in his eye. “I’m game if you are. I hate to miss a ferris wheel.”

Alec considered the proposition then grinned at Pete. “Me too. I don’t want to miss it either.”

In a few short minutes he found himself buckled into the seat as it lifted into the sky. It had been the better part of a decade since Alec had been on a ferris wheel. But tonight had been one of the best in recent memory. On the second revolution he pried apart the fortitude to crack his eyelids open a touch, just in time to see the ground rush past. He kept them open as the wheel climbed back to the top. The view was striking from the orange tint of the last sunlight disappeared while below them was the layers multitude of bulbs and tubes to light up every object on the fair grounds. The ride continued, and Alec relaxed. At least he’d gotten calm enough to loosen his grip on the metal bar holding them in.

As his nerves settled, the wheel slowed until they were perched at the top. Pete reached over and squeezed Alec’s thigh. A ripple of pleasure washed over him at the touch. Pete left his hand in place, leaned closer and pressed his lips against Alec’s cheek. The combination delighted him and a few seconds later he realized his shaft was stiffening. He took a stuttering breath and turned to Pete.

“What are you doing?” Alec asked.

“Do you like it?”

He struggled to keep himself controlled as Pete slid his hand higher up Alec’s thigh and nipped at his earlobe. “Stop,” Alec sighed out. “I don’t want to get in trouble.”

Pete gave Alec’s package a quick squeeze then cupped his face. Their eyes met, and Pete’s expression threaten to melt his resolve.

This time Pete’s voice turned raspy as his lips almost touched Alec’s ear. “Want to come to my hotel room? I have a great bottle of Kentucky whiskey I picked up.”

Alec swallowed hard and nodded in agreement as the ride lurched back into motion.
