Excerpt: Scorch

We sat in silence. He had stopped massaging my shoulders but left his hands resting on my back. I tried desperately to think of a way to break the tension that had come up between us. And then Darryl spoke up.

“Have you ever done anything sexual with a guy?”

I shook my head vigorously.

“No. No way.”

When I realized how my answer sounded I tried to backtrack.

“I mean, I don’t have a problem with it. It’s just…you know. Not for me.”

“You haven’t ever? Not even messing around as a teenager?”


His hands moved on my back again in a different way. He was rubbing the surface of my skin instead of kneading my muscles. This time he wasn’t so successful in relaxing me. I had become very aware I was sitting on a bed being touched by a guy who had just told me he was into men.

“Have you ever thought about it? I mean, ever been curious?”

Sure I had, but I didn’t want to admit it to him.

“Yeah,” I said, surprising myself with my honesty. The word came out so softly I wasn’t even sure he had heard me. I guess he did, because his hands were moving lower, nearly reaching my ass.

“Are you curious now?” he said quietly, leaning into me so I could feel his breath against my neck. I didn’t move a muscle, afraid of what might happen if I did.

“Um,” I began, stopping when I felt his arms around me, hugging me from behind and then running his hands around over my chest. I sucked in my breath when he reached my nipples. He toyed with them slowly, using his thumbs to tease them into hardness. My cock jumped as he moved his hands down my body until they came to rest on my hips.

“Want to satisfy your curiosity?”
