Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 44

 Free Fiction Friday: April 10, 2015: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 44: I started the year putting the links to the last five chapters before each post I noticed they were being used so I’m going to continue it for the time being.  If nothing else it will make it easier for folks to find the last few chapters. Chapter 39: Chapter 40: Chapter 41: Chapter 42: Chapter 43: It had been a while since Jason had been to his grandparent’s country club. The way staff looked down on him and his friends had always irritated him, but never more than tonight. Both Blake and Peter were overly conscious of the issue. “Stop worrying.” He heard his brother say. When …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 43

 Free Fiction Friday: January 16, 2015: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 43 I started the year putting the links to the last five chapters before each post a couple weeks ago and I’ve noticed they’ve been used so I’m going to continue it for the time being.  If nothing else it will make it easier for folks to find the last few chapters. Chapter 38: Chapter 39: Chapter 40: Chapter 41: Chapter 42: “A tie?” Darryl twisted the blue and red knot around the pale blue button down dress shirt. “They couldn’t pick somewhere that we could dress like normal people?” Jason had worn ties often enough that it didn’t bother him as much as it bugged his best friend. …

 Free Fiction Friday: January 9, 2015: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 42 Since one of my 2015 goals is to post more consistently and to keep up with my FFF posts, it seemed right that I start the year off right.  That said, many of you probably have no recollection of what’s going on—so before I post the next chapter here are the links of the last five chapters (If you like having the last five chapters at the top of the newest one, leave a comment and I’ll make it a regular feature): Chapter 37: Chapter 38: Chapter 39: Chapter 40: Chapter 41: Jason saw movement to his right and turned to scan the open space between him …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 41

 Free Fiction Friday: January 2, 2015: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 41 It’s been a hot minute (hour??) since my last Free Fiction Friday post. Since one of my 2015 goals is to post more consistently and to keep up with my FFF posts, it seemed right that I start the year off right.  That said, many of you probably have no recollection of what’s going on—so before I post the next chapter here are the links of the last five chapters (If you like having the last five chapters at the top of the newest one, leave a comment and I’ll make it a regular feature): Chapter 36: Chapter 37: Chapter 38: Chapter 39: Chapter 40: Blake noticed …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 40

 Free Fiction Friday: November 14, 2014: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 39 The perfect weather did little to lift Blake’s mood as he and Ethan walked across the quad toward his dorm. Ethan’s presence should have helped, but his boyfriend didn’t approve of them slipping in to get some things while Brett was out. “I’m not pretending it didn’t happen, you know.” Blake wondered why he tried again. “We’re holding hands on campus. How is that avoiding the issue?” “You’re avoiding him.” Ethan lacked any of his usual happy go lucky demeanor. “No, I’m not.” He stopped until Ethan turned to face him. After the hard played soccer match early, Blake was tired. And that usually meant cranky too. …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 39

 Free Fiction Friday: October 31, 2014: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 39   “He can’t do this.” Dean paced back and forth. “It’s not allowed.” Darryl swallowed a mouthful of water and nodded vigorously. “What Little T said. Just talk to campus housing.” “They might kick him out of school if I do that, Darryl.” Blake struggled with why that thought bothered him. This was Brett’s issue, not his. Wasn’t it? Dean raised his hands above his shoulders in a shrug and leaned forward. “And we should care that Graydon will have one less douche bag on campus, why?” “It’s not that simple.” Blake turned his head to avoid Dean’s stare. “We’re… we were friends.” “Friends don’t act like that.” …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 38

 Free Fiction Friday: October 3, 2014: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 38   “Stop worrying.” Ethan said. He shook his head, but the Wi-Fi connection distorted it on Blake’s screen. At least the audio was clear. “I doubt he’s going to freak out.” “I’m not worried about him going off on me, that’s not Brett’s style, but I’m not looking forward to moving out if it comes to that.” Ethan’s face tightened and Blake braced for his response. “It doesn’t matter if he’s unhappy, that’s his deal. He needs to get his knuckles off the ground and move into the twenty-first century. Why do straight guys all think they’re at risk of being hit on by gay guys?” “I don’t …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 37

 Free Fiction Friday: September 26, 2014: After a couple weeks off to deal with some family issues, I’m back this week. Hopefully this will the start of a good run. 😀 Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 37 “I’m telling you he’s acting weird.” Blake lifted his shirt and wiped the sweat from his eyes. Dean didn’t bother with modesty and pulled his shirt over his head and used it to dry his face and neck. He bent over and grabbed his knees. “You’ve been running with my brother, haven’t you?” The accusation wasn’t the response he expected. “Yeah. Why?” “Cause you pick spots and run intervals like him. I hate that.” “They’re good for you.” Having hated them at …

Free Fiction Friday: Second Shot – The Senior Year – 36

 Free Fiction Friday: September 5, 2014: Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 36   Blake paced his small dorm room. Brett’s stuff added to his made it feel even smaller. He’d been spoiled having the room to himself for the three weeks. Spoiled in more ways than one. But the weekend came and went, Ethan went home and Blake left Jason and Darryl’s house to come back to the dorm. During the two days at Jason’s place, he’d tried to find the right words to tell his roommate. Everything he came up with sounded lame. “Brett, I’m gay,” was direct but had an overly dramatic feel. And he didn’t think he could or should blurt it out to start the …

Second Shot – The Senior Year – 35

  Second Shot – The Senior Year: Chapter 35   The night felt strained. Blake wished he’d told Jason he and Ethan didn’t want to be a part of the ‘party.’ Despite his best efforts to keep things chatty and friendly, even Ethan couldn’t cut the tension. Then again, maybe Ethan was the problem. Blake noted how Hanna tensed up every time Ethan did something flamboyant. Wendy brought out the ‘gay’ in him—at least that is what Ethan whispered too him after a particularly funny exchange. He thought he’d have minded the over-the-top, queeny performance, but seeing his boyfriend having fun, being himself, laughing with their friends, Blake realized that was part of the attraction; Ethan was comfortable being Ethan. Everyone—Hanna …
