WHEN THE PLANETS ALIGN
by Kate McMurray
“So you do want to be with me?”
This whole conversation was starting to give Simon a headache. He couldn’t figure out how to articulate what he meant, or at least couldn’t say it directly without twisting his knife further into Michael’s chest, apparently. “I don’t know. It’s not that I’m not attracted to you. I think maybe someday you and me could…. Just not right now. I’m not in the right place for—”
Michael was on Simon in a flash, cutting off his words with a fierce kiss. He sucked Simon’s lip between his teeth and bit gently. He put his hands through Simon’s hair. Simon was surprised at first, but responded in kind, the adrenaline surge rushing through his body as he grasped onto Michael’s waist.
Because the thing of it was, it wasn’t only adrenaline. It was desire too. In an instant, he was hard and wanting, and he grabbed at Michael, groped him, really, and Michael groped him right back. They pushed and pulled at each other, bit and moaned, until they toppled onto Michael’s bed together.
“This wasn’t what I meant to happen,” Simon said, though suddenly he wanted it.
“Me neither,” said Michael, though Simon didn’t believe him.
“Doesn’t change anything.”
“I get that. Want to do it anyway?”
