This week’s snippet is from my kinky little rope story Curious Sustenance. Ross is staying in a hotel in Salem after giving a presentation on trans-inclusive healthcare to a roomful of managers at a state government agency. As Ross would say, he’s self-medicating by jumping into the chocolate fountain. 🙂
It wasn’t cold in the room, but he reclined on the king-sized bed under a mountain of blankets, laptop open beside him. He held his phone in one hand, Miles’s card in the other. After a long silence during which he repeated almost every shred of positive self-talk he’d ever heard, he dialed.
Miles sounded out of breath when he answered.
“Hi. Um, I hope this isn’t a bad time. This is Ross.”
Oh, shit, that voice could melt butter. Or fry an egg.
Thanks for reading!

Love that last line!
Thanks Paula! 🙂
I’m wondering what he was doing to be out of breath.
Good question. 🙂
That is fucking hot–especially in tandem with that picture. Excuse the language. Couldn’t help myself. ;-D
Thanks, Karysa! No worries about the language, this is a fuck-friendly blog. 😉
I sympathize with Ross’s insecurity—that first call is tough! 🙂
I could see the melt-down of any will-power with that last line. That line was classic.
