The Waterlord Prequel part 15 by Ravon Silvius

“Leave him, he’ll be out for a while.” Footsteps thudded on the wood, and Tom’s heart pounded. “Damn, we should be able to find him!”

 Tom huddled by the door. He considered running again, and then wondered if he should climb over the deck. Swimming didn’t scare him. But then, there was Nathan…

      “The deck!” the boy shouted, and Tom froze. He should have run while he had the chance.

Double Trouble:: Chapter 72 by Jon Keys
 
Josh sat on the bleachers waiting for Danny’s turn. Why did we thought this was a good idea, and how did I end up at his first competition? Somehow the bull riding had seemed better than spending a day at the mall. He did not want to be the responsible parent in the junior rodeo circuit.
The dry wind whipped between the sheetmetal buildings and cooled Josh who was already warm from the morning sunshine. A second later it stirred the powered area dust before racing out the far side of the enclosure and left a taste of southwestern Oklahoma powder in Josh’s mouth. The late fall sun was hotter than normal, but the discomfort barely registered on him as he searched the crowd of bull riders.

Moving Forward #16 (4.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

He half expected to hear Dustin whine at him to slow down, but the other man caught up with him easily enough and fell into step beside him. Had he really thought he would be discouraged just because Marshall hadn’t waited for him? Didn’t matter. He shrugged the thought off and kept walking.

“Burnham seems like a nice place,” Dustin commented after a few moments of silence between them.

“It is. We like it.” Marshall shoved his hands into his pockets, focusing on the terrain over which they walked rather than his companion.

“I can see why. I bet everyone knows everyone else.”

The Caretaker: Chapter 4 by Rob Colton

 “Chris? What are you doing?”

 The warble in my voice gave away how nervous I was.

 I felt the bed dip with Chris’s weight, and I was keenly aware of his closeness. I could feel the heat of his body. I could smell his odor, a combination of musk and sweat. He clearly hadn’t showered since the fight.

 “I wanted to make sure you were okay.”

 That did not sound like Chris. “Did Grant send you in here?”

 “Yes.”

 “Figures.”

 “Look, both of us want you to be okay. But we also need to make sure the things you’ve seen are kept secret.”

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

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?”
