Robbie was trying to appear relaxed.
He wasn’t used to being on a horse. It felt as if he was a mile off the ground. Taking a deep breath, he stared straight ahead, letting Titan lead the way. The animal knew what to do and loyally followed after Cody and Ginger. He held onto the saddle horn, his body gently swaying with each step.
“How are you doing?” Cody looked over his shoulder, peering at Robbie.
“I’ll be okay as long as I don’t fall,” Robbie told him honestly.
Cody’s gentle laugh rippled through the air and Robbie grinned. The sound was so honest and Robbie started to relax. He really was enjoying his time with Cody.
“The Belt Buckle Ranch is approximately twenty acres. There’s a fence that stretches around the property.” Robbie looked around as Cody talked, inhaling the clean mountain air. The mountains in the distance were breathtaking. The whole place looked like a brilliant postcard. “We have cows, horses, and prized bulls here. William bought the place in nineteen ninety-four. I’m not sure if you know this, but he was famous in the rodeo world. After he retired, he bought this place and with his contacts, started supplying bulls to rodeos around the country.”
“Hearing you talk…” Robbie shook his head. “I wish I would’ve known him.”
“I’ve been here on this ranch for five years. William was always very kind to me—more like a fath—” He stopped suddenly, clearing his throat, and looked over at Robbie with a look of shame on his face.
“Father?” Robbie asked.
“Yeah, I’m sorry. I wasn’t thinking.”
“No, no, please don’t feel bad. I’m glad that you had him.” Robbie had a wonderful childhood filled with love. He had no regrets or anger toward his mom or William.
“Thanks, he was always supportive. One of my passions is photography, and he put my pictures around his house. He did things like that for the guys around here.”
“He must’ve been a good man.” Robbie was glad that Cody had good stories about his father.
“This is my home,” Cody told him, his voice full of emotion.
“Of course it is,” Robbie agreed. “You don’t have to leave the ranch. Is someone telling you to leave?”
“No.” He shook his head. “I just—I just don’t have anywhere else to go.”
Robbie pulled his horse up against Cody’s. He reached out a hand and touched the cowboy’s knee, trying to offer comfort. “You don’t have to go anywhere. I’ll do whatever I can to make sure you and the others stay.”
“Are you planning to stay?” Cody asked, nudging Ginger. The horses started walking again, heading further into the field.
“I don’t really have a plan. I just wanted a fresh start and this place seemed as good as any. I lost my mom a while ago and I was really looking forward to meeting my father. Unfortunately I was too late. Now, I don’t really know what I’m going to do.” Robbie stared out at the green rolling hills.
“I–I’m sorry for your loss. I wish I knew what to say,” Cody replied in a small voice.
“I appreciate that.”
“I hope you’ll stay. William would’ve wanted you to stay here. He loved this place. What do you want to do? I mean, do you have any desire to work on the ranch?” Cody asked.
“I don’t know. I used to own a bike shop, but that didn’t work out. The bills piled up and I had no idea how to turn it around and make it a success. I thought it would be easy.” Robbie sighed. “I’m a good mechanic. But maybe I wasn’t meant to own my own garage.”
“You can still be a mechanic, if that’s your passion. We have vehicles here that need maintenance.” Cody’s mood changed, and the cowboy appeared pleased with himself for coming up with such a wonderful idea.
“I don’t really know what’s going to happen now, but if I can stay for a while, I will.” He didn’t have anywhere to go, but at this point, he didn’t know what was going to happen.
William was gone. Would he even be allowed to stay at the ranch? Jackson seemed pretty certain, but Robbie didn’t share the man’s optimism. Only time would tell.
“Well, then, I’d better put you to work and convince you to stay.”
Robbie chuckled. “Let’s finish the tour first.”
They rode side by side around the property. With each minute that passed, he felt more at ease on the back of the horse.
He stared at the cowboy’s sexy bubble butt through his tight jeans and licked his lips.
Maybe my dry spell is over.
Adjusting himself, Robbie pulled his bottom lip in his mouth and groaned.
“Everything okay?” Cody looked over his shoulder and glanced down, noticing Robbie’s erection. He winked. “Do you want some help taking care of that?”
“Jesus,” he moaned breathlessly at Cody’s offer.
Robbie barely stepped one foot inside the barn when Cody grabbed him and shoved him against the wooden slats. The young man pressed his body against Robbie’s. His mouth covered Robbie’s hungrily, as he slowly moved his hips, letting Robbie feel his hard cock blocked behind the confines of his jeans. Cody’s tongue swooped inside his mouth, sending shivers of desire through him.
It took a minute for the shock at being manhandled to settle in. Once it did, Robbie changed their positions.
He turned Cody, shoving his back against the wood. He licked his lower lip before recapturing Cody’s mouth with savage intensity that pulled a moan out of Cody, but surprised the hell out of him. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d been this desperate to be touched and to touch.
Raising his mouth from Cody’s, Robbie gazed into the man’s eyes. “Do you have a condom?” he asked, hoping his cowboy had a hidden stash somewhere.
“Yeah.” He nodded rapidly. “Yeah, in my wallet.”
“Thank goodness.” He growled. Cody grabbed the front of Robbie’s jeans and moved his hand over his bulging erection, jacking him off over the material. “If you keep doing that I won’t last long enough to fuck your ass.”
With two hands, Cody unbuttoned the top of his jeans and lowered the zipper. Robbie stared at him, watching his face closely as he shoved one hand in and cupped his shaft. Cody’s eyes dilated, his nose flared slightly, and he licked his bottom lip—all good signs.
“Damn, I can’t wait to feel you inside me.” Cody ended the sentence with a moan.
“Give me the condom,” Robbie ordered.
He wanted to sink inside the sexy cowboy. He wanted to feel the man’s body surrounding his own.
Cody ripped open the foil square and rolled the lubricated condom over Robbie’s shaft. “Do we have lube?” The cowboy chuckled and pulled a small packet out of his pocket. “Damn, were you a Boy Scout?”
“Yeah, actually, I was. But, in this case, I was just hopeful.” Cody ripped open the small lube packet and squeezed out a liberal amount, coating the condom before smearing the rest on his own ass.
“Don’t you think I should stretch you?” Robbie asked, raising a brow. He was all for a fast and furious fuck, but he didn’t want to hurt his partner.
“I’m stretched and ready,” he said, kicking off his boots and pulling off his tight jeans. Robbie arched a brow. At his look, Cody said, “I was horny as fuck this morning just thinking about you all night and masturbated.” He pulled his shirt over his head and tossed it to the ground.
Robbie leaned forward and kissed the cowboy. “Are you sure you’re stretched enough?”
“Oh yeah,” Cody replied, nodding. “Now, I want you to sit on that bale of hay so I can show you how cowboys ride, stud.”
Robbie didn’t need to be told twice. He sat down on the edge. Cody moved closer, spreading his feet so that they were on either side of Robbie’s thighs. His cock was face level and in the perfect position for a taste. Wasting no time, Robbie closed the distance and took the mushroom shaped head into his mouth. He licked the pre-cum off, getting a good taste. Cody groaned, moving his hips, almost sending Robbie over the edge with all his excitement.
Pulling back, he looked up at Cody. “I need to be inside you.”
“God…I want you to fill me up,” Cody answered.
He lowered his body until his well-stretched hole was poised directly above Robbie’s cock. With a smile, Cody slowly impaled himself, groaning as he descended.
“Fuck,” Robbie breathed out as Cody’s body enveloped him.
It took some time, but eventually Cody was fully seated, balls resting on top of Robbie’s. He ground his teeth as Cody bottomed out and rotated his hips.
“Oh, son of a bitch, you feel fuckin’ good. I don’t think I’ve ever been so stretched.” Cody moaned. “Oh, God…”
“Mmm-hmm,” Robbie agreed. The words and movements were enough to have Robbie riding the edge of climax.
He wasn’t going to last much longer and hoped his cowboy wouldn’t hold it against him. It had been so long since he’d been inside a man. This was better than any other experience he could remember, Cody fit around him like a tight glove.
