“What’s your story? I know you played for USC, but how did you end up here?” Cooper Roosevelt, the quarterback, asked him when they were inside the extravagant locker room.

“I played college ball. I didn’t think I’d be playing for the pros.” Thomas was embarrassed to admit that none of the other professional teams drafted him. “Receiving a call from the GM changed my whole life, man. This expansion team is a blessing as far as I’m concerned.”

“Do you already have a place to stay?”

“No.” Thomas shook his head, chuckling. He knew he still had a lot to do before he was settled in Las Vegas. “I got the call, loaded my car, and drove straight from SoCal. I didn’t want to miss the first day of training camp.”

“I’ve got a house here. If you’re interested.” He shrugged as if his offer was simple and casual, but Thomas felt as if there was something more. “I’m looking for someone to rent a room. I don’t want to live alone in a big house. I know that probably sounds silly since we’re in the pros now.” He paused and Thomas didn’t want the man taking the offer off the table.

“Yeah…thanks, man, that would be great.”

“You can follow me home after practice and check out the place.”

After practice, Thomas showered and got dressed. He applied a little more cologne that normal just in case Cooper’s offer was more than just asking him to be a casual roommate. His pick-up truck was packed to the brim with everything he owned. He followed behind Cooper’s sports car away from the wild life of the strip and toward a community along the western edge of Las Vegas at the base of Red Rock.

Even though he’d just signed the contract to play professional ball, it was still shocking to have a savings account with some serious dough. Having always lived in apartments, Thomas didn’t have any desire to purchase a giant house in Vegas. He wasn’t going to go crazy and drop a bunch of cash on a new vehicle either. He had always lived simply and that wouldn’t change now that his circumstances had.

When Cooper turned down the driveway, Thomas let out a whistle as he looked around. The house wasn’t just a “house.” It was a mansion. The place seemed to be designed in harmony with the colorful desert environment, with an aeronautic authenticity. The house was the perfect image of modern architecture with straight lines, flat roof, and glass walls. It was well hidden by carefully placed structures that rose up from the ground, blending in with the surroundings perfectly.

Pulling to a stop behind Cooper’s car, Thomas shut the engine off and climbed out of his truck. He shoved his keys into his pocket and looked around, feeling slightly out of place.

“Come inside.” Cooper waved him over and Thomas followed the man toward the front door.

The walkway was just as incredible as the outside of the home, with a walkway carved out of stone leading to a door that was twice as tall and wide as him. Cooper typed in a code at the front door and it unlocked before slowly opening on its own.

“Holy shit,” he whispered out, and Cooper chuckled.

“I helped design this place. It’s everything I ever dreamed of, wrapped up in metal, rock, and glass.”

“Wow.” Thomas shook his head in awe. “I don’t think I could ever dream up something like this.”

“I haven’t lived here very long. That’s how new this place is. It was built with the latest green technologies. The home provides a large percent of its own power consumption through a state of the art system with multicrystal photovoltaic modules placed on a wind canopy.”

“A what?” Thomas raised a brow in confusion. He had no clue what the hell Cooper was talking about, but it was obvious the man was into high technology gadgets.

“The canopy on top of the house.” He pointed up and Thomas leaned his head back, staring up at the glass ceiling. “It was designed to eliminate direct sunlight from entering the house during the summer. Anyway.” He waved his hand and continued the tour. “There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a small movie theater.” Cooper winked and Thomas grinned. “This house has everything and anything you could ever want. You could be completely entertained without ever having to leave home.”




Eyeing his treat, he spread Thomas’s cheeks apart, and stared down at the tight rosette for a second. He gripped the meaty cheeks tightly before leaning forward and licking Thomas’s hole.

He pushed his tongue deep into the man’s gorgeous ass, pressing his face into the crease, and nuzzled as close as possible.

“Oh fuck!” Thomas shouted.

From his position, he reached a hand in between Thomas’s spread thighs and grabbed his cock, jacking the hard flesh. He lavished Thomas’s ass with saliva before licking his way down the perineum to his balls. Pulling the man’s cock back, he pulled the head into his mouth. Sucking the tip frantically, Cooper slid a finger into Thomas’s tight hole, moving the digit in and out. He alternated between sucking the head of Thomas’s cock and licking his brown asshole.

Cooper nibbled, sucked, licked, and ate until Thomas was writhing around, begging for his dick. The pleas and moans excited him, pushing him to give Thomas exactly what he wanted. Cooper bit into the beefy flesh of Thomas’s ass cheeks and the man howled as he humped the air. He knew exactly what to do to bring out the beast inside of Thomas. They’d been lovers long enough to know what the other craved.

“Please, please, please,” he panted and Cooper grinned wickedly. He loved hearing Thomas’s pleas for more.

“Lube,” he simply said before pulling away from his lover and quickly grabbed the bottle on top of the dresser before joining Thomas back on the bed.

Flipping open the cap on the bottle of lube, he squirted a line of the slippery substance against Thomas’s hole before applying a generous amount to his shaft. He dropped the lube to the bed before holding Thomas’s hip with his left hand and the base of his erection with his right. The head of his cock kissed Thomas’s hole before he slowly pushed his way inside.

Tight, moist heat enveloped his cock in a hug and Cooper tipped his head back, groaning in pleasure. Closing his eyes, he didn’t stop moving until he was balls deep inside his lover. Once fully buried, Cooper paused as a shiver ran through his system and goose bumps broke out along his skin. Fucking perfect. This was his home, inside Thomas, the two of them connected.

“You feel so good,” he whispered. “God, I’ve missed you.”

“I missed you, too,” Thomas told him as he looked over his shoulder and stared at Cooper as his eyes filled with emotion. “Kiss me.” He licked his lips and Cooper immediately obliged.

Leaning forward, he echoed the shape of his lover’s body. He connected their lips. Cooper rested his weight against Thomas’s back, as he brought them closer together, needing more intimacy. He moved his chest against the slick skin of his back with every motion as he pushed into Thomas’s welcoming body again and again. He kept each thrust slow and deep, waiting to draw out the pleasure for them both, as their tongues danced and the kiss continued. It had been way too long since the two of them made love.

Thomas moaned against his lips, arching his back up against him. He started moving, meeting Cooper’s strokes.

Disconnecting their lips, he leaned back, needing to move faster for a deeper penetration. The slow rhythm was driving him crazy. It wasn’t enough anymore. Cooper swiveled his hips and picked up the pace, changing the rhythm. Soon he was driving hard and deep inside Thomas. The man let out a loud gasp when Cooper changed the angle of his thrusts, pegging his prostate with each stroke.

“Oh fuck!” he shouted. “Not gonna last…”

“Me either,” Cooper said as he pounded inside of Thomas’s ass.

He could already feel his own orgasm racing through his system, building up at the base of his spine. Cooper reached around and fisted Thomas’s cock. He only pumped Thomas’s shaft twice before the man yelled his name, shooting stream after stream of cum into Cooper’s hand.

Cooper’s muscles tightened, his body jerking as his control shattered.

“Thomas!” Cooper cried out as he buried his cock to the hilt and followed Thomas over the edge, shooting his release into Thomas’s ass.

Falling forward, he rested his forehead against Thomas’s shoulder as his body shook. It took him a few minutes to catch his breath. After a couple minutes, Cooper wrapped his arms around Thomas and carefully turned their bodies so they could lie down comfortably.

When Thomas moved, Cooper’s softening shaft pulled free from the man’s warmth, and he grumbled in disappointment. Before he could even ask what Thomas was doing the man cupped his face and captured his lips in a passionate kiss. The soft, plump lips moved against his and Cooper wrapped his arms around Thomas’s waist, pulling him close. Chest to chest, their bodies aligned perfectly and once again everything was right in his world.

He moved his hands up and down Thomas’s back, unable to stop touching the man’s creamy skin. The kiss went on and on, long and drawn out, until Cooper’s cock perked up once more. Thomas moved against him, their shafts rubbing.

“Mmmmm,” he moaned, pulling Thomas until the man was lying on top of him. Thomas continued to grind against him and Cooper was sure he’d lose his mind.
