Fortitude: Part Forty-nine by Cia Nordwell 

Wildman set a brutal pace. For such a small, wiry guy, he could really move. I couldn’t go on much longer, and we were already deep in the jungle. “Can we take a break?” I gasped. I stumbled into a tree and stopped, my shoulder throbbing. Without its support, I probably would’ve dropped to my knees.

 “We’re exhausted.” Teddy hadn’t said anything, but his feet had started dragging, leaving furrows in the thick loam. I hitched him closer to my side; my muscles burned, and my arm felt like it was going to fall off.

“Not there.”

I rested my

To Be Determined: Part 3 by Johayan

I ducked into the bedroom and got dressed, pausing long enough to find out that I should were something nice but casual. I came out wearing a pair of khaki shorts and a striped polo shirt.

Rowdy looked up from the coffee table book he was flipping through and smiled.

“You look far more handsome dressed like that than you do dressed for that office job of yours.”

I blushed and turned away, muttering something about lies and needing glasses.

“Well Mr Modest, shall we get going on this adventure of ours? I’ll drive.”

To Be Determined: Part 2 by Johayan

I looked nervously at Rowdy.  What about your project?  You could get so much done.

I knew what I should answer but then I realized that Rowdy was standing there in his boxers.  Not naked, but in his boxers.  Either he slept with them on or put them on during the night.  Hmm.

I found myself looking down, taking in the shapely farm boy body that the clothes had hidden from view last night.  He was shorter than I remember, but his boots probably added 3” to his height.  He looked better built with his clothes off

The Stormlords part 7 by Ravon Silvius

Rowen didn’t know how to feel about the turn of events his life had taken. He couldn’t be sure of anything as he recovered. On the afternoon of the third day since he had woken, Kristoff helped Rowen stand, smiling without a trace of disgust as Rowen staggered to his feet. Pins and needles shot through his legs as he regained his footing.

            “Let’s head outside,” Kristoff said softly. “We’ve come a long way, and you need your strength before we go any further.”

Fortitude: Part Forty-five by Cia Nordwell 

Wildman darted between me and the guard.

 “Stop!” My yell was strangled. I had to lower the gun; I’d almost pulled the trigger when he moved. My heart raced and sweat dripped down my back.

“Get me out of this thing,” Teddy said. He was straining at the bars of the cage.

 Wildman had the guard on the floor, savagely beating him. He wasn’t moving, except with the blows that rained down with a strength that seemed to defy Wildman’s size and had everything to do with his fury.

“Just wait.” I holstered my weapon and rushed over. I didn’t
