FOOL FOR LOVE by L.M. Brown
April the first, also known as April Fools Day, was one of Liam’s favourite days to work. The previous year it had fallen on a Sunday and had been something of a disappointment. On working days, however, his normally fairly quiet office turned into a building full of pranksters. You had to check every chair before you sat down as well as ensuring you didn’t leave any unattended mugs of coffee around. Fake spiders in the bottom of them were common place, as were other equally delightful surprises. Even the IT department joined in on the fun …
Rattletrap #38 by Tali Spencer
Ussim swung his body across Jedd’s sleep-loose form and off the bed. As a sexual play area the bed was barely adequate, but his rôn appeared to find it suitable. Jedd had been breathing deeply for enough time to have completed one human sleep cycle. If he awakened now, he would get some benefit.
Using the human ship’s crude sonic cleansing wand, Ussim rid himself of semen and other traces of his and Jedd’s unusual coupling. It was a special brand of torture for Ussim to handle his penis while indulging memories of moving inside hot tight flesh. Humans… were inventive.
Love’s Labor – A Crescent Bay Tale by Julie Lynn Hayes
“Damn, damn, damn!” Alexx doubled over, hugging his middle, as another sharp pain tore through him, threatening to rip him apart.
“I told you it was a bad idea to get up. Get back in that bed!” Miller gave Alexx a no-nonsense look, waving toward the large bed in the middle of the room. “Wow, I didn’t even know this kind of hospital room even existed. Leave it to Crescent Bay,” he muttered as he took Alexx’s arm and ushered him back to bed. “Guess this place is for the rich folks.”
“I want Raoul, where’s Raoul?” Alexx moaned, ignoring Miller’s commentary. True, this room resembled a high end hotel room rather than any sort of birthing room, but right now he didn’t care about that. He just cared about his husband, wanting him to be there.
“You know where he is, and he can’t help it. That’s what you get for going into labor on the night of the full moon. You think they’re gonna let a wolf in here? Sheesh!”
No Flash by Cia Nordwell
“Ow. Ow. Ow.” Evin slammed the oven door shut with his knee while simultaneously dropping the cookie sheet of charred teething biscuits into the sink. He turned on the cold water, fanning the air desperately to try and get rid of the thick fog of black smoke. It didn’t help nearly enough, so he opened the window even though it was pouring down rain. He wanted to stick his hand out in the frigid drops to ease the fiery burning, but he didn’t have time.
He ran into the living room and grabbed Micah from the mess of blocks scattered
Double Trouble: Chapter 33 by Jon Keys
Love Across Time: Chapter 43 by Jim Dunaway
The celebration was cut short as security guards entered the control room and quickly surrounded Ryan. “Ryan Edwards, you are hereby ordered to report to the tribunal immediately,” one of the guards said with a sneer on his face. You could hear the proverbial pin drop in the room; the silence broken only by Liam’s muttered “here we go again.”
As Ryan was escorted out, everyone followed in the wake; Liam pausing momentarily to lock down the travellator control systems with a security password known only to Duncan, Colin and himself.

More Fool Me by Carol Pedroso
“So all I have to do is use this spell and it will activate on its own? Are you sure uncle?” Elizabeth asked Jamie.
“Yes, Lizzie. I’m very sure. I used this trick on Casey all the time when we were young.”
Elizabeth hugged her uncle and skipped off downstairs for breakfast.
“You ready for school Lizzie?” Casey called, waiting impatiently at the front door.
“I’m ready Da,” Lizzie said, coming up behind her father.
Casey jumped, “How did you get outside?”
“I had to get my homework from your office in the clinic
Bad Case of Wanting You by Avery Dawes
I lifted my face to the sky as I adjusted my knit hat. Large, wet snowflakes drifted in lazy spirals, mocking me. A couple stuck to my eyelashes as they floated to the ground. This must be some sort of cruel April Fools’ prank. I should be running in shorts and a T-shirt, not shivering in tights and a long-sleeve pullover.
Taking a minute to stretch out my legs, I decided to run around the Tidal Basin, even though the delicate cherry blossom buds were probably frozen and destined to die unopened.
Traffic was light this morning. I headed out…
