“Because, no matter how anyone else saw it, this presumed “romance” was, in and of itself, a game.” Part of my "Black Rose" project. ~~~ In all honesty, I don't usually write sexy stuff. This - while it doesn't actually have sex in it - is probably the closest I'll ever dare to get to sex as it does explore the thoughts of someone having an erotic moment. It's intentionally written in the style of 19th century serials, so if you're wondering why I'm doing more telling than showing... And, yes. This is about two fully grown men. I would have thought the names "Blake" and "Landon" were enough of a giveaway.
