“You,” the other man said suddenly, his eyes locking with Lawson’s.
Lawson tore his eyes away from the man’s piercing blue eyes to slide down his face. The hard lines of the man’s face seemed to soften as he looked at Lawson in shock. His mouth hung slightly open, and Lawson so desperately wanted to lean forward and taste the ripeness his mouth had to offer.
“Yeah, we bumped into each other last night.” Lawson coughed to clear his throat. “Sorry about that.”
The man tried to turn around in Lawson’s embrace, but there wasn’t enough room and regrettably Lawson had to let go. He stood up straight but didn’t take a step back.
“It wasn’t your fault.” The man laughed nervously.
Silence carried on between them longer than considered normal. They both stared at one another but would quickly look away when they made full-on eye contact.
“Lawson,” he said in a rush.
“Excuse me?” The man leaned closer and dipped his head down, tilting his ear closer to Lawson’s mouth.
“My name, it’s Lawson.” He held out his hand for the man to shake.
“Oh, I’m sorry.” The man took his hand. “Jeremy.”
A tingling sensation shot across his fingertips to run up his arm. He swallowed down his groan as the desire he felt caused his cock to fill. Lawson’s hand tightened around Jeremy’s, and he didn’t want to let go. The attraction he felt toward this man was too strong to be anything other than the pull of a mate. His heart started to race, and his hands began to tremble. It was as if a jolt of adrenaline raced through his veins.
This can’t be happening. I’m not ready for this. Lawson’s inner dialogue echoed in his head. What if he doesn’t feel the same way? What if he tosses me aside like my parents did? Lawson couldn’t shake away those doubts. Deep down he knew he wanted to find love but was too afraid of how it would end.
Being cast off by his parents who were supposed to love him unconditionally had changed Lawson on the inside. He had become the type of person who believed the cup was half empty not full. Since that day he had felt like he was only half living. Losing his parents’ love hollowed him out in a way that Lawson wasn’t sure could ever be fixed. What would he do if his mate did the same thing? Not knowing frightened Lawson the most. It would be a pain he wasn’t sure he could survive.
“Are you okay?” Jeremy asked.
Lawson looked into Jeremy’s eyes and eased his hold on the other man’s hand. Right then something hit Lawson. If he let his fear rule him, he’d never truly live. Life was about taking chances, and he needed to make himself see where this went. Jeremy could prove him wrong. This man could fill that place in his heart that he always thought would be vacant of the adoration a lover could give.
“Yeah, I’m great.” He let go of Jeremy’s hand, searching for something else to say. “So, come here often?” He groaned internally as his eyes fell shut.
“Uh, no.” Jeremy smiled, showcasing a set of perfect white teeth.
“Man, I’m sorry.” Lawson wanted to explain. “I didn’t mean to say that cheesy line. I’m just nervous,” he admitted.
“Really? I couldn’t tell.” Jeremy laughed. “But nonetheless, still flattering.”
Lawson smiled and motioned toward the dance floor. “Would you like to dance?”
Jeremy’s face went pale, and Lawson could see the quick up-and-down bobbing of his throat as he swallowed. The man looked from the dance floor down to his feet then back to Lawson. “I think I’ll pass. I’m not much of a dancer.”
“Just one dance.” Lawson didn’t want to let the man get away. “We don’t have to do that jumping around full-on body grind they’re doing out there.” He took a step closer until his chest brushed up against Jeremy’s. “Just a gentle sway of two guys having a relaxing get-to-know-you kind of thing.” He flashed a playful smile. “What do you say, Jeremy? Don’t shoot me down. I don’t think my heart could take it.”
Jeremy stared longingly at the people dancing then finally agreed. “Okay, just one dance. That’s it.” He held up his finger.
“Deal.” Lawson took Jeremy’s hand and intertwined their fingers. On wobbly legs Lawson led the way to the dance floor.
The song changed rhythm, not as fast as the previous song. Lawson shouldered his way through the crowd until he found a vacant spot. He stopped and turned to face Jeremy. He brought one of Jeremy’s hands up to rest on his shoulder then guided the other to his other shoulder. Jeremy grinned at him as he shook his head from side to side but didn’t pull away. Lawson wrapped his arms around Jeremy’s waist and pulled him closer and started to sway to the music.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this.” Jeremy laughed.
“What? Are my dance moves that bad?” Lawson teased as he edged closer to Jeremy, feeling the heat seep off the man’s body.
“No, it just reminds me of when I was a kid at a school dance. My sister and I use to laugh about how everyone danced the same way. Just swaying back and forth like a pendulum.” Jeremy stopped laughing and a saddened look crept over his handsome face.
“You okay?” Lawson asked, sensing the man’s distress.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Jeremy’s arms slid further over Lawson’s shoulders, bringing their bodies even closer together. A shudder quaked over Lawson’s body as Jeremy rested his head on his shoulder.
Not wanting to break the spell they were under, Lawson just held Jeremy tighter and let the music move them along.
“Thanks.” Jeremy started to laugh. He liked that Lawson didn’t stare at his legs or show any signs of regret of being in bed with him. Lawson seemed genuine with his motives for being here. Even if the man was lying, his dick wasn’t. The swollen head glistened with pre-cum, and the tight, hard length pointed up toward the man’s belly button. Jeremy marveled at the size. It wasn’t overly thick, but it was long.
“So.” Lawson tugged at Jeremy’s sleep pants. “Can you take these off? I’m dying to see you completely naked.”
Jeremy stared into Lawson’s eyes, and he swore they glowed in the darkness. Whatever worldly creature Lawson was, it only added to his handsome features.
Not wanting to make the man wait, Jeremy took a deep breath and put his hands in the waist of his pants and wiggled them down his legs. His cock slapped against his taut stomach, and he heard Lawson’s sharp inhale. He looked over to see the man staring wide-eyed at his dick. There had been many men before the accident that had told Jeremy his cock was a monster. It was thick, long, and veiny. Most men complained about how their mouths ached when they sucked him off, and they couldn’t deep-throat his wide girth. But at least Jeremy had a big dick going for him.
“God,” Lawson said in awe. “You are beautiful everywhere.” He reached out and wrapped his warm fingers around Jeremy and sucked in a breath at the contact.
Lawson crawled up onto his knees. He reached down and shoved Jeremy’s pants out of the way and moved between his spread thighs. Still with one hand on his raging hard-on, Lawson lowered his head to lick at the damp tip. Jeremy jumped at the wet caress and groaned as Lawson took more of his length into his mouth.
The light flickers of tongue to his slit and under the swollen head had Jeremy jerking his hips upward. Lawson sucked deeply on his shaft and used one hand to cradle his balls and the other to run up Jeremy’s chest to pinch at his pebbled nipples.
“Fuck!” Jeremy shouted as sparks shot along his sensitive skin. He wanted to come so badly but bit the inside of his cheek to distract himself. With Lawson’s head bobbing up and down between his legs Jeremy couldn’t help but reach out and place his hands on the back of the man’s head.
Lawson had a good six inches in his mouth, and there was still about three more to go. Jeremy pushed on the back of Lawson’s head as he arched his hips up. The man hummed along Jeremy’s shaft and swallowed the remaining length down to the root. Jeremy could feel Lawson’s throat massage along his rigid shaft and never once did the man gag or choke. Either Lawson had been gifted with no gag reflex or he was an expert at sucking cock and learned by practice. It didn’t matter to Jeremy though. What Lawson was doing to him made his mind relax and he forgot all his problems, if just for a little bit.
The familiar tingling in his nut sack had him pulling on Lawson’s ears to get the man to stop. “Babe, stop,” Jeremy grunted. “I’m about to come.”
With one last long lick, Lawson let Jeremy’s cock slip from between his lips. He sat back on his haunches, stroking his hard meat in his hand. “Me, too.”
Jeremy looked down Lawson’s body until his eyes landed on his cock. He raised his hand to beckon the man forward. Lawson smiled as he walked up over Jeremy’s body on his knees until his groin was level with Jeremy’s face. Jeremy raised his hand and gripped the hard shaft in his fingers and used his other hand to clasp around Lawson’s tight hard ass.
Sitting forward a little more, Jeremy buried his nose in the man’s light-blond pubic hair and took a deep breath. The wild, musky scent of Lawson swirled around his brain like a drug. Lawson moaned and shoved his cock into Jeremy’s face.
He pulled back to lick his tongue around the purple head, tracing the ridge around the width. Lawson pumped his hips forward and Jeremy opened wide to get his first taste of this gorgeous man. The sticky juices flowed from the tip setting Jeremy’s senses on fire. He greedily applied more suction to the tip, coaxing more to come out.
“God, yes.” Lawson groaned as he hands tunneled through Jeremy’s hair, causing goose bumps to pop up along his body.
Jeremy let the hand holding on to Lawson’s ass drop and brought the fingers up to Lawson’s mouth and pushed them inside. Lawson sucked and tongued the digits like they were a cock. Spit slickened his fingers, and Jeremy pulled them free with a final swipe from Lawson’s eager tongue. Jeremy used the wet fingers to pet the sensitive flesh behind Lawson’s balls up to his small puckered opening. He painted the fingers over the little hole then used his middle finger to apply pressure and enter Lawson’ body.
Lawson cried out as Jeremy moved farther inside. The tight heat surrounded his finger. Jeremy fucked Lawson with his finger for about a minute before he added another. The man above him went wild and started to thrust his hips down on his fingers then up toward Jeremy’s mouth as he continued to suck while finger-fucking him.
“You feel so good,” Jeremy said in between slobbering on Lawson’s cock. “I want to be inside you.” His gruff voice sounded unrecognizable to his own ears.
