This week I’m continuing my story for the GoodReads M/M Romance promt. Gabe has been called into the coach’s office and Luke’s taking a quick shower before his Physics class starts.
* * * *
Pain twisted through him and he put a fist against the wall, rested his head on his arm to let the hot shower spray run down his back. He couldn’t be attracted to those gorgeous men. His parents wouldn’t accept it. His father sure as hell wouldn’t accept a gay son. Eighteen more months. He had to hang on and graduate. After that, well, he could fuck anyone he wanted. But until then, Dad held the purse strings and Luke had to keep to the ‘straight as an arrow’ path expected of him.
The silence stretched out in the locker room. Had they left? He glanced over his shoulder and lost his breath. They stood with their arms around each other, both sets of pretty eyes on him. Tension built between them, thick and heavy in the humid air. Could they tell? Did they sense how hot he was for them?
He faced the tiled wall again. “Go away,” he muttered, and hoped they took the gruffness in his voice for anger and not the aching lust that pulsed through him. He winced at Riley’s small gasp. Damn, he hadn’t meant to hurt him, not after Gabe’s cruelty.
