Another weekend is here – the days went by fast, didn’t they?
Because I’m evil, this is my last posting from Joey’s story. 😀 Should you be interested in reading more, “Truck Me Back to Normal” is available at MLR Press. Not sure what I’ll post next week, but stay tuned!
In this final excerpt (over six lines for context), Joey has returned from spending time with his brother Derrick (from the story “Truck Me How I Like It”). Joey stumbles upon Bear, naked from the waste up. Yumm.
As I rounded the corner of the horse barn, I stopped, cold. There before me was Bear, shirtless and sweaty, pounding a nail with a hammer as he repaired a portion of the fence that housed the pigs. I had to take a deep breath and close my eyes for a minute so I wouldn’t jump the man.
Fuck, he glistened in the afternoon sun, rock hard muscles and tanned skin bare and just…scrumptious. When Bear worked with us during the week, he always wore a shirt. This was frickin’ spectacular. When I felt I had myself mostly under control, I walked toward him and cleared my throat, not wanting to startle him.
“Afternoon, Mr. Lancett,” I said, and he looked up, surprised.
“Joey…I mean, Mr. Choi. You’re back early.” He put down the hammer and quickly donned the shirt that I now saw had been thrown over an open red toolbox.
