Thirteen Black Cats: Chapter 12 by Louise Lyons
I didn’t remember falling asleep. Billy and I had been laughing inanely at the Twitter posts, snuggling together on my bed, not thinking about tomorrow. Now the pale light coming through the gap in the curtains told me it was tomorrow and Billy was still with me, lying on my arm and trapping me. His head rested on my shoulder, warm breath brushing my neck, his arm draped across my chest as he slept. We were both still dressed and my morning erection throbbed painfully against my fly.
I groped for my phone, finding it on the mattress between us
The question was rhetorical. Which one had fled the streak? I was already grimly contemplating my response, but I was distracted by the thoughts of the death Henry had earned himself—once he confessed to everything he knew. No reason could justify drugging his own son.

“Fuck,” he whispered, closing his eyes.
He was about to consider this the worst day in his life. First Jay had come to him begging for a night alone and then he’d had to go and cancel. He would never forget the other man’s grimace of pain and disgust. Josh had tried to explain that he was standing him up because he was trying to find a solution to your problem.
Moving Forward #53 (13.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes
The store looked as though it had been stocked with this cruise in mind, including clothing for the man who liked to go out in drag. Lee guided them past the racks of glittery dresses to the more conservative part of the store.
Marshall was hoping fancy didn’t mean having to wear a tuxedo. No offense to the guys who liked to wear them, but they weren’t really his style. Luckily, he didn’t see any of those here. What he did see were some pretty nice suits, though.
