✯✯ Burning Up ~ Excerpt ✯✯
“Was that proposition from Toby another example of my imagining things going on there?” Mason asked the next time things got quiet.
Bryce fought the urge to growl at his friend. “That wasn’t a proposition.”
“Right. He wasn’t flirting with you and he definitely didn’t want to dance with you.”
“That’s right. He was just being polite.”
Mason nodded. “If you want to talk about all this nothing at some point, you know where I am.”
“Fine.” The word came out harsher than Bryce meant for it to, but the last thing he wanted to do was talk about Toby and Matt. What he wanted was to forget about them, which was never going to happen since he spent several days a week with them.
Things got busy again, and before Bryce knew it, it was time for him to leave. “Have a good night,” he said to Mason as he headed to the back to clock out.
“Yeah, you too. When are you working again?”
“Day after tomorrow. Six till close.”
As he drove home, Bryce’s mind drifted to thoughts of Toby and Matt dancing, their bodies sliding together. Would they have removed their shirts? Would their skin be slick with sweat? He let the fantasy spin. Matt was the aggressor, yanking Toby to him, pushing his hand between them and gripping Toby’s cock. Toby’s head would drop back with a groan, one Bryce would only hear if he were right there, grinding against Toby’s ass, working him over, pumping his cock. He’d tell Matt exactly what to do, how to touch Toby, then he’d…
He slammed on the brakes, barely noticing the red light in time. Fuck. He’d never been that into the idea of two men at once before, but now…
He’d moved to Durham to start over, to see if he could still do the job after that night in Atlanta that had shaken his confidence. He shuddered, still unable to let the memories creep in without the threat of a total breakdown. That family. Everyone said they hadn’t stood a chance, no one could have gotten to them in time. Bryce pushed those thoughts aside, along with his fantasies of Toby and Matt. He concentrated on driving as he headed home to go to bed, alone. He wasn’t ready for anything else.
