Denied: Chapter Fifty-one by Cia Nordwell

Mackinack was going to be dangerous. Deke wasn’t happy Captain didn’t take more people with him, but their argument seemed like something they said before and were saying again just to say it. I watched them but tried to make it subtle, so they wouldn’t know I was watching them.

“At least you’re going,” Deke grumbled. “He won’t let me go after last time.”

“What happened last time?” I asked. I took the new knife Deke handed over.

“This one doesn’t have a paralytic, by the way. It wasn’t a big deal. I just broke a few appendages off this

In Pieces #21 (7.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Ryan had meant to stay awake until Ben returned from his tête-à-tête with Cameron. There were so many things he wanted to say, things he wanted to hear.  Things he wanted to do. His libido was racing a mile a minute just thinking about Ben. About finishing what they’d begun so long ago. Ten years was a whole lot of anticipation.

Opening his eyes to find sunlight bouncing into the bedroom told him he’d failed at staying awake rather miserably. The question was would he find himself alone again, or if he looked across the room, would he see Ben asleep in the other bed?

The answer to that question was both familiar and warm. And it was pressed up against him.

In Pieces #20 (6.4) by Julie Lynn Hayes

“Abby, what’s wrong?” Ryan asked. His question was immediately echoed by Ben, who was already moving toward the distraught girl. Ryan quickly followed in his wake.

Abby seemed surprised to see them. Maybe she’d assumed everyone was in bed by now.  She swiped at her cheeks, but said nothing. Ryan thought he heard her sniffle. Maybe she was trying to pull herself together before she said anything.   Or maybe she just didn’t want them to know what was going on. When she did speak, it was in her usual calm voice.

“I didn’t know you guys

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 11.2 By Carol Pedroso

Simon came awake with a start. What had he been dreaming about? Whatever it was had left him with a feeling of dread. He shook off the feeling and stretched.

He headed out to the main room and found Kitryn reading a book by the fire with the kits playing around his feet.

“You okay?” Kitryn asked when he looked up.

“Yeah, just a weird dream. I can’t even remember what it was about, just the feeling it left behind when I woke up.”

In Pieces #15 (5.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Ryan had never heard a sound quite so glorious in his entire life.  The single note was plaintive and yet intense. As Ben’s voice began to rise in tone, the sound flowed around him and through him. It seemed to penetrate into the depths of Ryan’s soul, to places that had been untouched for a very long time. He couldn’t explain the feeling, but neither did he attempt to fight it. Rather, he embraced it.

He couldn’t keep from staring at Ben as he sang. Ben’s eyes had closed, an expression of utter serenity suffusing his face. Ryan thought he looked almost like an angelic choir boy.  Paradoxically, the single note was sensuous and enticing, producing an almost palpable ache inside of Ryan which was a far cry from angelic.
