Wow, I can’t believe we are almost to the end of my short story collection. 5 pieces of erotic flash fiction. It has been so much fun writing these short bites of fantasy. They are very quick and packed with a punch.
GENRE: Contemporary • Erotic Romance • Fiction • Gay • Paranormal
LENGTH: 3,818 words
With the downturn in the economy, everyone is struggling to make ends meet. Looking for someone to split the cost of living, Jordan places an ad for a roommate. The words fell in place: Incredibly Neat & Clean, Unfurnished Bedroom Unit Suite -- Roommate Wanted.
What’s the worst that could happen? The new guy could turn out to be a slob or an obsessive online gamer, but Jordan never imaged his new roommate would be the man of his dreams.
Sebastian is gorgeous. He’s tall, dark, and devilishly handsome. Once Sebastian moves in everything changes for the better. Could this be a match made in heaven? Or will Sebastian’s devilishly good looks be the death of Jordan?
NOTE: This story won the 2011 Readers' Choice Award for Best Anthology Story at GayAuthors.org.
(Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.)
Jerking the door open with as much force as he could, Jordan yelled at the stranger standing in the hallway. “What do you --”
The guy’s dark eyes opened wide as he pulled away from the door.
“Oh my God,” Jordan’s pale face immediately flushed bright red. Noticing that the guy had taken a second and third step back, Jordan needed to stop him before he turned tail and ran.
“I’m sorry if I’m --” The guy tried to apologize, but Jordan quickly stepped into the hallway with him.
“No, I’m sorry! I thought you were the old lady who lives below me,” Jordan tried to explain.
He gave Jordan a curious glance.
Shit, that didn’t come out right. “No, what I mean is, I thought she was coming up to complain about the noise. I was moving some furniture around.”
“That explains why you didn’t answer the door the first two times I knocked.” His voice was so deep and sexy.
Jordan felt his heart rate double, sending all of his blood straight to his dick. “I-I-I ... uhmmm,” he stuttered for a second before taking a breath to steady his nerves. “I must not have heard you knocking.”
Stepping back into the apartment, he was glad when the guy followed him inside, instead of running away.
“I’m Sebastian,” he said, holding out his hand. “The room is still available, isn’t it?”
The skin of their fingers touched in a casual handshake. It should have been nothing, a simple touch. So why did it feel more erotic then an all-night bender watching gay porn?
Jordan nodded his head, afraid that he would start stuttering again like an idiot or say something really embarrassing.
Sebastian’s skin was a dark color, unlike anything Jordan had ever seen. It wasn’t quite brown or even a dark olive tone, it appeared to be ... almost ... red. The light shimmered on his face and bare arms. His fingers itched to touch him again.
Clearing his throat, Jordan asked him, “Would you like to see the room?”
