He jumped a little and turned around before grimacing openly. Ian was standing about one foot away from their table with a strange man. Judging by the man’s possessive arm around Ian’s waist, however, it didn’t take a freaking genius to guess that this must be Ian’s fiancé. He schooled his expression in a hurry and tried to smile through the heartache. Maybe he was still in love with Ian after all. All the weird feelings for Jake that resurfaced recently might only be an illusion. He was probably just lonely, and Jake was so sweet and lovely toward him. It might simply be a rebound feeling in his current state of vulnerability.
“Hi, Ian. How are you?” he greeted, proud that he managed to keep his voice sounding even and casual.
“Oh, life has been awesome,” Ian answered flippantly before gesturing at the man next to him. “This is Nathan Cooper, my fiancé.”
His heart clenched painfully upon hearing it, but he continued to smile and offered his hand.
“Nice to meet you, Nathan. Congratulations to both of you on your engagement.”
It would have made it easier for him to hate Nathan if the guy had been a rude bastard. Unfortunately, Ian’s fiancé turned out to be a polite and friendly man, who quickly shook his hand before doing the same with Jake. It was much worse to witness the lovesick gazes exchanged between Ian and Nathan as they thanked him for the congratulatory remark, and he balled his fists tightly on either side of his jeans. He even grabbed his pants once or twice because he could feel his hands trembling a little as he attempted to get his feelings under control. Most importantly, he tried to maintain a smile, unwilling to let Ian see how much he was hurting right at that moment. It was horrible enough that his ex-boyfriend had cheated on him and then dumped him before immediately proposing to the guy he was having an affair with. He wasn’t going to let Ian see him shed tears over their failed relationship because that would just complete his utter humiliation.
“Jake is my best friend,” he explained to Nathan as calmly as he could manage to.
“Great. It’s really nice to meet you both.”
“By the way, Ray, I forgot to contact you about the unexpected deposit in my bank account. What’s the money for?” Ian asked him.
“Oh, that’s…that’s half of the deposit for our…I mean, the previous apartment,” he corrected himself in a hurry. “I decided to move out before the end of the lease and stay with Jake instead, but I paid the management in full to cover the rental until the end of the contract.”
“That’s great. It’s good that I’ve taken all of my stuff before you move out then. Everything works out fine for both of us.”
“Yeah, that’s…that’s right. Easier for me to pack up, too,” he answered, trying his best to stop the tears from flowing.
He couldn’t believe that he apparently still had leftover feelings for this cheating asshole, but the phantom pain coursing through his entire body was proof enough that he had not gotten over his ex-boyfriend at all.
“Anyway, Nathan and I have to leave. It’s Saturday, and we have plans for tonight.”
“Right, right. Of course. Nice to see you again, Ian. You, too, Nathan.”
Jake only waved good-bye at the other two men. He could tell from Jake’s tightening jaw that his best friend was furious on his behalf. He heaved out a sigh of relief when Ian and Nathan exited the bakery together. He watched their backs for a few seconds longer before sitting down quietly.
“What a fucking insensitive asshole,” Jake spat out, obviously angry.
He shook his head at his best friend. “Thanks, Jake, but I’m okay.”
“Ian shouldn’t have flaunted his new—”
“Jake, please,” he mumbled, feeling even more embarrassed now. “Can we just forget about it?”
Jake eyed him uncertainly for a second or two before nodding at him in understanding.
“Sorry. Should we leave now?”
“No, I’ll be fine.”
“I’m all right, Jake,” he assured his best friend and sniffled a little.
The two of them sat in silence for the next few minutes. He ate all the cupcakes in a hurry, doing his best to ignore his aching heart. When he was done, he took big gulps of his smoothie before leaning back against the chair and staring at his trembling hands on his laps. Jake only ordered a slice of rose apple pie and a cup of green tea, but the man wasn’t even done with half of the slice of pie.
“Not hungry?” he inquired, trying to fill in the weird extended silence between them.
“Do you want it?” Jake countered and pushed the pie toward him.
He shook his head. “No, thanks, Jake. I’m full.”
“Ray, should I drop you off at home before—”
“No, I’m going with you to the restaurant. I can help you out tonight. No problem at all. I just want to stay busy. It gets my mind off…things, you know?”
“Are you sure?”
They didn’t talk at all while Jake finished off the remainder of the pie and his cup of green tea. The tense silence stretched on between them. Neither of them uttered a single word as they made their way out of the bakery toward the car. In fact, they didn’t communicate verbally with each other all the way to the restaurant. However, Jake reached out and grabbed one of his hands in a silent gesture of support and understanding. He appreciated what Jake did at the moment, but he couldn’t say it out loud. Instead, he turned his head away from his best friend and gazed out through the window at the passing scenery as he cried quietly.
Once they were both completely naked, he moved down lower, extending his tongue and lapping at Raymond’s erect nipples, one delectable bud at a time. He gripped the other man’s hard cock with his right palm and stroked it gently. He pressed his bulkier, muscled body down onto Raymond’s leaner one, effectively trapping his boyfriend underneath him. He groaned deep in his throat as his lover’s writhing body resulted in the delicious friction of their bare skin. He chuckled deeply when Raymond attempted to push him down. He knew what the man wanted from him, but he was going to take his own sweet time in torturing his lover until they both exploded from the immense pleasure.
He lifted his head up and grinned at his lover. “Patience, sweetheart.”
He then licked his way down the navel all the way toward Raymond’s groin area, but he avoided touching his lover’s cock. Instead, he licked his right index finger and pressed it against the rim of Raymond’s hole. It slipped in with a little difficulty, and he moaned out loud. It was so tight and warm. He couldn’t wait to bury his cock inside it. Nevertheless, he wasn’t ready for it yet. He simply licked the juncture between Raymond’s balls and thighs, one at a time, smelling the sweaty, musky scent.
“Jake, don’t. I was all sweaty. I haven’t—”
“Shh…I want to taste you.”
He snickered but didn’t pull away. Instead, he continued lapping at his lover’s balls with his tongue pressing flat and rough against them. He dragged the tip of his tongue up and down, eliciting the most amazing whimpering sounds out of his lover. He continued the ministration until he was satisfied before moving down even lower and lifting Raymond’s ass up higher. He then pressed his nose closer, sniffing the tangy scent and licking it hungrily.
His lover’s writhing and whining only served to drive him insane with lust, so he drove in deeper with his tongue, frantically needing to hear the man’s repetitive groaning sound. It was even better when he felt Raymond’s hand grabbing his hair rather painfully before pushing Jake’s face impossibly closer to that delicious hole. His cock strained and twitched in the air. He could only rut desperately against the mattress as he tasted his lover’s hole.
Moments later, he knew that he wouldn’t be able to hold back anymore. He was getting too close. He moved up and took Raymond’s cock inside his mouth before increasing the suction. He dove down lower, one enticing inch at a time until he could feel the other man’s bush against his nose and smell the dried sweat. He growled deep in his throat and swallowed, massaging the head of Raymond’s hard cock over and over again.
“Feels good?” he asked softly when he pulled away.
He chuckled when Raymond reached for his shoulders. “What do you need, sweetheart?”
“Your cock. Please.”
“Speak clearly, sweetheart.”
His breath was forced out of him when Raymond abruptly rose higher and gripped his hair painfully before practically screaming into his left ear.
“I want you to fuck me. Hard.”
“Okay, hold on. I need the condom and lube.”
“I want you to fuck me bare. I’m clean. I got myself tested after Ian. The first one was two days after he left the apartment. The second one was a week after I moved in here.”
“Fu…fuck! I’m clean, too, sweetheart. I got tested twice myself. The last one was a few days ago.”
Raymond snickered at him. “Confident much?”
“Nope, just hoping that I’ll get to breed your ass without a barrier between us.”
“Do it then. Fuck me. Come inside my ass.”
He squeezed his eyes shut and attempted to regulate his breathing and regain some control. Otherwise, he would climax the second he buried his hard cock inside his lover’s ass. He opened his eyes and gazed at his lover before kissing the other man passionately, lustfully. When he couldn’t take it anymore, he broke away and snagged the lube off the bedside table. He probably coated his cock excessively, but he couldn’t wait any longer. He placed his cock against the rim of his boyfriend’s hole and pushed in roughly.
“Is that what you want?” he growled loudly.
“Yeah. Fuck! Give it to me.”
“Hold tight, sweetheart.”
He set a punishing pace as he pounded into his lover repeatedly. The incredible sensation of Raymond’s tight warmth gripping his cock was incomparable. He could feel every inch of Raymond’s ass when he dragged his cock out before he hammered into it mercilessly. Their mingled gasps and moans filled the room. He had to shake his head multiple times as the sweat kept on rolling down his face and dripping onto his lover’s face. Raymond held him tightly with both arms before wrapping those sexy legs around his waist, effectively constricting the movement of his hips. He rutted desperately and whimpered when Raymond’s hard cock rubbed incessantly against his chiseled stomach.
“Come inside me, babe. Please. I want your cum. Make me yours.”
He lost it after that and shouted as he reached his climax, his cock spurting out plenty of cum inside Raymond’s hole. The sensation grew more intense when he felt the warmth of his lover’s cum coating his upper body. The squishing sound that resulted from his cock grinding with the cum he just deposited in Raymond’s ass, coupled with the slickness from Raymond’s orgasm between their torsos, aroused him further. If he didn’t have any refractory period, he would definitely be fucking his lover again.
“That…that was unbelievable,” he panted against Raymond’s lips. “Thank you, sweetheart.”
“No, thank you. You’re a fucking stud.”
“Yeah?” He preened a little from the compliment.
Raymond snickered at him in response. “Uh-huh. Can you go again?”
“Give me twenty minutes.”
