Here's a little Excerpt from Mercury on Fire
Mercury, with an apron on over his tight T-shirt, was the stuff Eldon would jack off to in the shower. Eldon squirmed on the bar stool and tried to adjust his cock in his pants.
Mercury gave him a knowing smile and then chuckled. Of course, he would know.
“You don’t miss anything, do you?”
Mercury smirked. “Comes with being a cop. I’m glad you like the view.”
Eldon leaned on the counter and stole a green pepper from where Mercury was cutting it. “I’ve not been much into views in the past.”
Mercury lifted his eyebrows. “Why is that?”
“Guess there’s not been one I wanted to look at. Until you.” He couldn’t have said it plainer, but it was unnecessary where Mercury was concerned. Mercury was far too smart not to get it.
“I’m sure there’s more to it.”
Eldon shrugged. “I was too busy trying to survive to worry about relationships.” He’d had sex a few times, but not because he thought the guy was sexy. No one had ever been irresistible.
“That’s fair.” Mercury started cutting the green pepper into smaller chunks.
Eldon leaned forward, snatching another pepper. He had to be stealthy because Mercury’s knife skills were A+. “You’re good at that.”
“I enjoy cooking.”
“I don’t burn water, but I don’t know how to make oatmeal that doesn’t come from one of those little packets.”
“Come here and I’ll give you a lesson.”
Eldon didn’t hesitate. Whatever brought them closer.
He crowded into Mercury’s space as much as possible. “I’m ready for whatever lesson you want to give me.”
“Is that so?”
It was very much so. Eldon was tired of merely surviving. His life had been one shit show after another. He didn’t have the energy for it anymore.
