“Damn,” Shelton swore as he stepped from the commuter train into a bitter wind. Putting up the collar of his coat, he hurried along the sidewalk, hoping to beat the storm home. But the first snowflakes stung his face before he reached the brownstone he and Nevil had recently moved into. He smiled with relief when he spotted Nevil’s Prius in the driveway. Good. He wouldn’t have to worry about Nevil driving in the bad weather.

Shelton’s mood lifted further as he inserted his key into the front door lock. It had been a long week, and he looked forward to relaxing on the couch with a beer and the hockey game on TV.  Nevil would grumble about it, sitting at his feet and picking the game apart. Bored, Nevil would fixate on one of the more handsome athletes, talking dirty until at last he’d crawl over Shelton’s body and take out his aroused imagination on his obliging lover.

Shelton patted his coat pocket, reassured that the small jewelry box he’d picked up that morning hadn’t been misplaced. Excitement ran through him, imagining Nevil’s amorous response to his gift. Feeling slightly aroused, Shelton eagerly pushed open the front door.

Synthpop dance music pounded from the bedroom stereo when Shelton closed the door on the storm. He removed his shoes in the foyer and set them neatly beside Nevil’s before making his way down the hall.. He paused in the bedroom doorway and leaned on the frame. By the loud music and clothes strewn on the bed, Nevil was clearly dressing to go out in his usual, untidy way. Shelton chewed his lip, remembering the snow.

Nevil glanced up from the buttons on his dress shirt, and his attractive smile melted Shelton’s bones. “Good. You’re here. Hurry up. We’re going to be late as it is.”

Shelton’s spirits fell. “”What are we doing?””

“”Stewart’s birthday?|”

“”God, is that tonight? It’s snowing outside.””

Nevil walked over and helped Shelton out of his coat. “”Don’t be silly. It snows all winter, love.”” He pushed the tie to one side, and then unbuttoned Shelton’s shirt. “”Oh my.”” Nevil spread his hands over Shelton’s chest. Licking Shelton’s lips with his tongue, Nevil lingered over a kiss. He brushed his thumbs across Shelton’s nipples, sending pricks of electricity along his nerves.

Nevil drew back with obvious reluctance and pushed Shelton toward the bathroom. “”You have ten minutes.””

“”You could join me…” “Shelton invited, but Nevil shook his head and waved him off, grinning. He stripped out of his work clothes, and then headed across the room to the bathroom.
