Regeneration: Chapter 1, Part 5 by Louise Lyons

“No.” I avoided his gaze. I didn’t sense he was a danger to me, despite what he’d done to get arrested, and the realization he viewed me in a similar way to Neil filled me with anticipation. I wanted to learn more about him, to hear his rumbling voice again, but I couldn’t think of anything to say to encourage more conversation.

I was saved from the awkward silence by the return of Dina, Susan, and Johnson. I passed a dish to each of them and we sat down to eat. Neil didn’t return until we’d finished the meal, and

Moving Forward #61 (15.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

I think we should tell Roy first,” Lee said once they’d gotten their fill of the hot tub and gone back inside. “I think he deserves to know before anyone else, what do you think?”

They’d dried themselves off with the generous towels the cruise line provided and sat together on the bed, sipping more Prosecco.

“I think you’re right,” Marshall agreed.

 Lee reached for his hand and squeezed it. “No time like the present. Assuming we can get a signal.”  He released Marshall’s hand and reached for his phone on the bedside table.

Regeneration: Chapter 1 Part 3 by Louise Lyons

“Save that for the wildlife.” I frowned at her pistol as she halted a couple of meters from the door. The woman glanced around her, but returned her gaze quickly to my face as she lowered the gun.

“What kind of place is this?”

“It used to be a weapons factory. It’s been deserted for years. My ship crashed here six months ago.”

“How many of you are there?”

“Just me. Some of the others died on impact. The rest were killed.”

“Killed by what?” The gray-haired guy was the one who asked. He stepped forward, giving his prisoner

Moving Forward #59 (14.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

When they returned to their room, Lee called Room Service and ordered a bottle of Prosecco. “Want anything to eat with that?” he asked Marshall.

Marshall considered for a moment. He wasn’t really hungry now, but he might be later.

“Maybe some of that lava cake we had before?” Something sweet would hit the spot after making love.

“Sounds good to me.” Lee relayed the order, then hung up.

“What’s Prosecco?” Marshall asked.

“It’s like champagne, but sweeter,” Lee replied. “A little something special for our last night here.”

Lee pulled Marshall closer to him, circling his waist. “A special night for a special guy.”

Marshall warmed at Lee’s words. “Being with you is what makes everything special,” he said sincerely.

Regeneration: Chapter 1, part 1 by Louise Lyons

I’d never imagined I could be this lonely. Being what I was, it came with the territory, but I wasn’t all I should be. If the experiment had been completely successful, I wouldn’t feel. I wouldn’t long for things I couldn’t have, and my apparent total isolation on the godforsaken planet of S.K.431 wouldn’t bother me.

I lay back on my bunk with a sigh. I’d always wanted to become an explorer and I’d achieved that at least. But my arrival in this hellhole had been accidental—an electrical malfunction in the Explorer 9 craft I’d been traveling on,

Buy One, Get Two and Three: Chapter 34 by Carol Pedroso

Daniel

The club was quiet when Daniel arrived with Silas. Apparently, Oliver had asked Silas to come early and of course Toby had insisted that they had to stay together. So, that meant Daniel was now left twiddling his thumbs and wondering what he was meant to do in the two hours until the club opened.

He decided to start cleaning the equipment. Although it was always cleaned after use an extra wipe over never did any harm.

He’d done the spanking bench and was working on the St Andrew’s Cross, when he heard a whistle.
