Coming Soon...







It really didn’t help that Toby and Trey, who I’d immediately felt a connection with, turned out to be total mind readers and seemed to instinctively know that I fancied Luca. What made it even worse was that they decided to make it their mission in life to match-make.
Trey was by far the worst of the two of them so of course it was his idea to play spin the bottle…
I couldn’t believe my eyes when the bottle spun and pointed towards Luca. I was totally sitting to his left. My insides started to squirm. There was no way he’d really go along with this, surely?
But he did. Trey and Toby knew him better than I did and totally knew he had the most competitive spirit known to mankind.
I glanced towards Trey who was grinning like an idiot at Luca, “Well, well, well,” he chortled, “Looks like you’re sucking face with the new boy.”
Shit. He was totally giving everything away. I looked at Luca who was eyeing me apprehensively. “You’re not gonna freak out on me or anything, are you?” he asked nervously.
It was a reasonable enough question. Things did sometimes make me freak out – raw fish for instance – I couldn’t go near the stuff without barfing. I was a bit of a liability in the kitchen around all of the seafood if I’m honest – don’t even get me started on the crayfish and the lobsters…
I was a bit of a liability full stop. I couldn’t empty bins, couldn’t wash egg off pans and sometimes even just the thought of something icky had me retching and running for the door. Luca though, bless him, just found me amusing for my little quirks – just another reason for me to love him… So the very idea of kissing Luca freaking me out was, frankly, laughable. Not a problem my friend…
I smiled at his concerned face and shook my head. He was so damned beautiful… “Not my first time kissing a dude,” I said. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that…
His eyes widened with surprise, “Uh, right.” He said, going a little pink, “Well, it is mine.”
Of course it was. I’d have been surprised if he’d said something to the contrary. He was straight. I was actually more surprised that he was considering it at all.
