Excerpt from “In His Name”
Light dappled through leaves, green and gold. A warm breeze carrying the scent of growing things, ripe fruits, rare woods. A garden, innocent and wild.
He stretched out on the grass, feeling it give against his weight. And next to him, another body, so warm. He opened his eyes and smiled at Matt, who held up a piece of fruit.
“Take of this, and eat.” He placed the morsel between Sean’s lips, and Sean bit into it. Tart juice flooded his mouth, the taste of autumn, of seasons changing. An apple.
“And now, you know.”
“Now, I know,” Sean repeated, swallowing the fruit. His sin, the sin of knowledge. Of wanting to know another man physically, to be pressed down by the weight of his lover’s body. To open his mouth to kisses, his thighs to caresses, the ecstasy and pain of possession.
He lay back and let Matt know him. Let those hands, calloused and strong, roam over his body, touch his neck, his nipples, his stomach. Slide between his thighs and part them, cup his balls, take his cock and stroke it until it wept with pre-cum. Slide farther back, press for entrance, the darkness of his body warm and welcoming to his love. The two of them, alone in the Garden.
Ego sum via, veritas et vita. I am the way, the truth, and the life.
