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

Double Trouble: Chapter 43 by Jon Keys
 
Christmas was coming and normally Darrin would be thrilled for the extended break. But with Ben’s death he couldn’t seem to bring himself to any real kind of resolution. Peace was beyond his imagination but it was harder each day to find some reason to go on. He’d made the mistake of telling Mitch about how he felt, and ended up with a weekly meeting with the university’s shrink.
“Those are hours I’ll never get back again,” Darrin muttered. “what?” Mitch asked. Damnit, when did he sneak into the room. Without turning he replied. “Nothing. Just the crazy guy muttering.”

Evans Woodworking: Chapter 13 by Jim Dunaway

“So Ethan, why don’t we begin with you telling me a little about yourself.”

“There’s really not a whole lot to tell. I’m 26 and I have my own business doing antique furniture restoration. I have two brothers and a sister. Do I tell her I’m gay? That might not be a good idea. She might have me committed.

“Do you have anyone special in your life?”

“Not now. It didn’t work out.”

“I’m sorry to hear that. What happened, if you don’t mind me asking.”

“He intentionally infected me with HIV.

It’s Hard to Forget Your First Love by Taylin Clavelli

After my first love, no matter what relationship I had, it got compared to it – compared to him in some way. Mainly the kiss – Was it better? Was it worse? Did it need more or less tongue? How did our height compare?

Regardless of whether my first love was a sinner or a saint, or who broke up with whom; the fact remained that, we shared a number of firsts. And they became the benchmark for every relationship that followed.

I’m not saying that my first love was the first man I was in a clinch with – hell no.

Don’t Look Back #43 (8.4) by Julie Lynn Hayes

The half-made breakfast plans were shelved. No one was in the mood to go to Milly’s now. They loaded the gear in the back of the truck and headed home instead. Once they’d unpacked, Roy volunteered to make coffee, so Marshall and Lee headed into the family room. They sat together on the couch. Lee held Marshall’s hand tightly, and Marshall welcomed the firm grip, afraid if Lee let go, he’d fall apart.

Marshall was already struggling to hold himself together as it was. Every fear he’d ever had was attempting to manifest itself. They were all connected, in some way, with the loss of Lee. But he was damned if he was going to ever cry because of her again.

At Full Speed #10 by Chris T. Kat

A shudder rippled through Jake’s body. Although he’d started to talk, and a tiny voice inside his head demanded to pour his out heart to Bruce—to let go for once and trust another human being again—his throat felt swollen and impeded further speech.

Bruce gave his shoulder a gentle squeeze before he turned his head and pressed a chaste kiss to Jake’s left temple. Jake gasped, startled by the sudden pressure of firm lips ghosting from his temple over his cheek to the tip of his nose.

Don’t Look Back #41 (8.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

“What’s the matter, cat got your tongue?” Her smile sent cold shivers coursing down his spine.

“Where’s your manners? Ain’t you gonna ask your momma to come in?” She took a step toward the door, as if she had the right to just walk inside, and Marshall found his tongue at last.

“No!” he blurted out. “I’m not. What are you doing here, and what the hell do you want?”

That seemed to take her aback, at least for a moment. She narrowed her eyes at him and frowned. “Is that any way to talk to your mother, Marshall Clinton?”

Love Across Time: Chapter 42 by Jim Dunaway

Colin’s facial expression and body language had Ryan freaking. Colin never let anything bother him. “Colin, you’re scaring me a little. What’s going on?”

Colin practically threw a beacon at him. “We need you to come back. The timeline’s all over the place. Thank God no paradoxes. It’s a good thing the building is protected by the chronometric cocoon. Liam thinks it might be because you’re here in the past.”

“I can’t go back. The tribunal will reinstate the death penalty.” Ryan stated matter-of-factly.

At Full Speed #9 by Chris T. Kat

They ate breakfast in companionable silence. Jake leaned back in the booth, patting his stomach after finishing his meal. “That was really good.”

Bruce’s eyes crinkled. “It looked like you were enjoying yourself. I’m glad you liked breakfast.”

“I’m stuffed.” Jake grinned. When the waitress came by to collect their plates, she topped off their coffees. Jake’s good mood deflated as he considered what he’d promised Bruce earlier. How could he have been so foolish to say he’d talk about what happened— andthe reason why he was so skittish around Bruce—without the aid of alcohol?

“Hey Jake, breathe, okay?”
