I Can’t Take You Anywhere
Over at the Evernight Readers Group page on Facebook, there’s a Flash Fiction Friday contest that runs every week, and features flash fiction written by Evernight authors for a specific prompt.

Zach sucked in a breath as Jerrek’s foot found his groin, massaging the firm ridge forming under the denim there. Swallowing hard, he reached out and snagged a passing waiter. “Check, please?” he managed.
Jerrek smiled, flexing his toes again. “Good boy.”
