Levi tossed and turned and punched his pillow for the thousandth time. He couldn’t get comfortable. The house seemed eerily quiet after all the noise of feeding and entertaining nearly a dozen firemen for most of the afternoon and early evening. His ears perked to every creak and whine as the wild winds outside whipped the side of the house. He glanced at the clock and grimaced. That alarm would go off in less than six hours. Animals had to be fed. Stalls had to be mucked. Joe would show up early and want his coffee before they hit the barn. They’d be short Mark and Nacho, because both men were dealing with fire damage at their homes. There was no way his mama was going to let Papaw back onto the property, not with all that coughing and those breathing treatments he’d needed. There was also no way in hell she was going to drive back out here to help around the ranch. She had an audience of firemen back in town watching her every move and panting at her feet.
He closed his eyes and tried to find sleep, but the image of Cooper on his knees tormented him. He could still feel the tight, wet sensation of Cooper’s mouth on his cock. It had been wild and unlike anything he’d ever imagined. The few kisses and gropings he’d managed to share with other guys hadn’t come close to those few explosive moments with his sexy fireman.
Except he wasn’t really Levi’s fireman. He was just an asshole.
Levi couldn’t understand it. One moment, Cooper had been totally into him and ready to go the distance. The next he was flipping out and acting guilty. Levi wasn’t sure what had caused the change. Embarrassment? Shame? Was Cooper out? Was that what had spooked him? Was he afraid of being found out? Or maybe he was ashamed of Levi, of the difference in their ages and in their experience.
A strange tapping noise at the window interrupted his thoughts. The first one he dismissed as a piece of debris, maybe a twig or something, flying in the wind. The second and third taps he couldn’t ignore.
Levi sat up and slung his legs over the side of the bed. He stared at the window overlooking the front porch. A fourth tap, this one louder and more of a thunk, caught his attention. Curious, Levi stood and crossed the small bedroom. He pulled back the curtains and lifted the wooden blinds with a tug of the cord. What he discovered stunned him.
Shocked, Levi quickly unlocked and lifted the window. He stuck his head through the screenless opening and gawked down at Cooper. “What the hell are you doing?”
“Sh!” Cooper glanced over his shoulder toward the bunkhouse. “Can I come up?”
“Hell no!” Levi glared at Cooper. “Go back to your bunk, and leave me alone.”
“Wait! Please, Levi,” Cooper pleaded and took a step closer to the house. “Let me explain.”
Cooper looked and sounded genuinely upset. Levi’s anger subsided. “All right. The door’s unlocked.”
Cooper jogged out of view. Levi shut the window and heard the telltale squeak of the front door opening and closing. His heart jumped into his throat, the wild beat of his pulse leaving him dizzy as he listened to Cooper’s footsteps on the stairs. He swallowed hard when he heard Cooper opening doors in search of him. “In here,” he squeaked nervously. “I’m in the room at the end of the hall.”
Cooper appeared in the doorway, his body outlined by the moonlight streaming through the wooden slats of the blinds. It was hard to make out his face, but Levi didn’t dare turn on the lights. It was all dreamlike and secret in the darkness. He didn’t want to ruin the moment by introducing the harshness of fake light.
“I’m sorry about earlier,” Cooper said as he entered the bedroom. “I overreacted. You confuse me, Levi. You’re sexy as hell, but you’re young, maybe too young.”
“Not that young,” Levi disagreed and moved closer. “I’ll be starting college in a few weeks. Besides you’re not that old.”
“True, but in experience, I’m decades older than you.”
Levi’s belly wobbled, and his hands trembled as he reached out to cup Cooper’s stubbled jaw. “Show me, Cooper. Teach me what you know.”
With a strangled growl, Cooper dropped the towel and reached for Levi. He wrapped his arms around the kid’s shoulders and dragged him closer. Their mouths met in a frantic kiss, lips smashing and tongues dueling as they fought for control. This was one time Cooper wasn’t going to back down. He cupped Levi’s face and stabbed his tongue between the younger man’s lips, winning the battle for supremacy. Levi moaned and clutched at Cooper’s sides. The sound sent shockwaves straight to his balls.
Cooper pushed Levi up against the nearest wall and devoured his mouth. All those weeks of pent-up frustration from the ceaseless work of firefighting and all the recent nights of torment with Levi starring in his fantasies exploded inside Cooper. His cock throbbed painfully. His hands itched to touch Levi.
“Oh, hell!” Levi groaned as Cooper groped and squeezed and caressed. The towel fell to the floor with one good tug, and Levi’s impressive erection was revealed to Cooper. He wasted no time grasping the thick, long shaft and stroking the soft, ruddy skin. Levi whimpered and pumped his hips. It struck Cooper in that moment that Levi was probably a virgin—and the thought terrified him.
He was a love ’em and leave ’em kinda guy. The nature of his work made it impossible to do otherwise. Or, at least, that was what he told himself. It made it easier when he snuck out before sunrise and hit the road without so much as a note. Romantic entanglements just weren’t his thing.
“What’s wrong?” Levi breathed against his cheek. “You’re somewhere else. Come back.”
Cooper gazed into Levi’s bright-blue eyes, and all that niggling worry fled. He wanted Levi, wanted him right now. The consequences be damned.
“Kiss me.” Levi brushed his lips against Cooper’s. “Make my toes curl again.”
Cooper chuckled and captured Levi’s mouth. He kissed Levi until they were breathless and panting. Levi thrust into Cooper’s hand in a search for stimulation. Cooper tightened his grasp on the younger man’s cock and stroked him slowly, his hand sliding down the rigid length and then swirling on the upstroke.
Wanting Levi to see stars, Cooper dropped his other hand into the mix and fondled his balls. Levi moaned and rose on tiptoes. Cooper tried to remember what it was like to be so young and inexperienced. Had his first encounters been like this? No, they’d been a bit sleazy and not at all romantic or gentle. He wanted to give Levi better than he’d had. Those seedy run-ins at clubs and bars and in dive hotels weren’t among his fonder memories. No, Levi definitely deserved better.
Cooper dropped to his knees, the discarded towels cushioning his fall. He kissed his way down Levi’s lean stomach, his lips dancing over the well-defined abs and circling the kid’s navel. His tongue drew a zigzag line toward that stiff cock.
“Fuck!” Levi’s hands flew to the wall behind him in search of support as Cooper wrapped his lips around the head of Levi’s dick. The honest reaction made Cooper smile. He liked having that effect on someone.
Cooper painted Levi’s cock with his saliva before bobbing up and down on the head. He grasped the base of the younger man’s shaft and stimulated him with short, tight strokes. Humming hungrily, Cooper lavished attention on Levi’s erection. He swirled his tongue around the head and flicked the slit in the crown. He sucked him deep and buried his nose in Levi’s crisp pubic hair. Levi groaned at the sensation of being deep throated and touched Cooper’s face. He pulled back and then swallowed him again, letting the head of Levi’s fat cock rest in the hot, wet alcove at the back of his throat.
“Oh, god.” Levi sounded like he was about to die. “Shit. Ah! Ah! Uh.”
Cooper grinned up at him and kissed the tip of Levi’s cock. “You like it when I deep throat your cock, baby?”
“Yes. Oh, hell. Oh!” Levi’s fingernails bit into Cooper’s shoulders as he took the entire length of Levi’s dick into his mouth. When he pulled back, the wet tip popped free from Cooper’s lips.
“Fuck my face, Levi.” Cooper relaxed his jaw and awaited that first thrust.
