May 24, 2017 Prompt – Adventures with Harrison and Mason #FlashFic

I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m going to try for a series of drabbles (precisely 100-word scenes) that will flow together featuring the characters from my Adventures with Harrison and Mason flash fiction story scenes.

May 24, 2017 — Can Opener

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

When Harrison and Mason opened the front door, Jaxon ran out of the kitchen with a huge smile on his face. “I helped make dinner!”

“I’ll bet,” Mason said. “Daddy always says you’re such a great helper.”

“Remember, I helped bake you a rainbow birthday cake?”

“I do! It was yummy and beautiful at the same time.”

“I got to turn the crank on the can opener because Gramps’ hands hurt when he does it, but not mine.”

Mason turned sad eyes toward Harrison. Harrison nodded. “I’ll talk to him. Maybe he’s holding back, thinking he’d be intruding on us.”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘a toy.’

May 23, 2017 — Leave Me

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

Harrison dropped bonelessly onto the bench in the sauna. “Best massage ever.”

“Same here,” Mason agreed. “Dude didn’t leave me with even the slightest bit of tension anywhere in my muscles.”

“I feel like a limp cat someone could throw over their shoulder.” Harrison ran his thumb across Mason’s palm. “This has been a great trip.”

“It has.” Mason lifted Harrison’s hand and kissed his fingers. “A perfect mix of family, fun, and relaxation.”

“One more day until we head home. Made any progress convincing Gramps to move in with us?”

“My hope is this afternoon with Jaxon will help.”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘can opener.’

May 22, 2017 — Booked

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

“So, Jaxon’s talk about mud facials and milk baths got me thinking.” Mason plopped onto the sofa next to Harrison.

Harrison perked up and hiked his eyebrows. “Yeah? Maybe a spa day?”

“You got it.” Mason leaned in for a light kiss. “I booked us for this afternoon. I talked to Gramps. He’ll take Jaxon to see that Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie and play a round of mini-golf.”

“Awesome. I needed a relaxing day, and I imagine Gramps is thrilled at the idea of a little one-on-one with Jaxon.”

“You should’ve seen him grinning when I suggested it!”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘leave me.’

May 21, 2017 — Mud and Milk

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

Harrison’s headache hadn’t entirely dissipated yet when Jaxon trotted into the kitchen. “You’ll never guess what!”

“What?” Harrison asked at the same time Mason said, “It’s not even possible to lick your own elbow?”

So of course Jaxon tried it before refocusing on his original purpose. “No. Guess what’s actually good for rubbing all over your skin.”

“Coconut oil,” Mason replied. Harrison choked back a laugh, remembering another use they’d found for the stuff.

“No!” Jaxon said. “Well, I don’t know. I mean mud and milk. So, I was thinking—”

“Not a chance, kiddo, but nice try,” Mason said.

To be continued tomorrow using ‘booked.’

Treadmill Week 26 & What I #amreading

Treadmill Goals:

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals (the only exception to this is Saturday nights, if I want to finish off a book so I can start a fresh one for the new week)

Note: Although I will try to avoid them, my daily #amreading updates may or may not contain spoilers, so read at your own risk.

What I #amreading: A Stranger in Skoria and A Slave in Skoria by John Tristan

These are rereads. I loved the books, and it’s been a while since I’ve read them.

51fXS2GXXTLMy favorite lines this week:

  • SUNDAY: We shared a glance, like coconspirators. For a moment everything was treacherously normal. Then he reached up and touched my cheek, his mouth turning down prettily, and said, “You’re going to be all right.”
  • MONDAY: One of his crewmen—a three-eyed woman, her skin red as brick—had come to his door. He cleared his throat and pulled back from me, seeming almost embarrassed.
  • TUESDAY: Suddenly Elyn stopped and turned to glare at me. I mentally replayed the last few minutes and became aware zie had been speaking to me. I’d not heard a word. I’d been too absorbed in studying the metal tangle of the Rumor.
  • WEDNESDAY: I thought of Theo, of Helen, and the others at the library. How long would it be until they noticed I was gone? I didn’t have much of a family to speak of anymore. They might be the only ones who would notice. Where would they think I’d gone, I wondered? Well, whatever they thought they’d be wrong. I was pretty sure “alien love slave” wouldn’t be in their mental list of my possible fates.
  • THURSDAY: 😒
  • 51b3AOiM9HLFRIDAY: “Greetings!” Aedar sounded strangely cheery. One of his guns rested casually on his knee as he leaned over the rim of the boat. “Sorry to see you’ve gotten stuck. Can we help take a few things off your hands?”
  • SATURDAY: I looked up at him with a sullen frown and tried to cover why nakedness with my hands. “Yeah? Well, nice to meet you. I’m Jason Vale. Now can you tell me what the hell is going on?”

May 20, 2017 — Tainted

(Mason’s 3rd-person POV)

Mason grinned as Jaxon danced around the living room to the 80s tunes Gramps had on the radio. Thankfully with better rhythm than Harrison, but unfortunately to the reverberating beat of ‘Tainted Love.’ At least it wasn’t so loud he couldn’t hear Harrison’s groan coming from the other room.

Joining his husband in the kitchen, Mason set a glass of water in front of where the man rested his head on folded arms. Mason ran his fingers through Harrison’s hair. “Headache?”

Harrison took a long drink of water before turning to Mason. “Please tell me I didn’t send that email.”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘mud and milk.’

#RainbowSnippets May 20, 2017 – Cultivating Love

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!

On June 24th I’ll be releasing a rewritten and expanded 2nd edition of Cultivating Love at JMS Books, LLC (You can still get the 1st edition through Loose ID probably through June 8 or 9). This snippet is from one of the new scenes that takes place about 1/3 of the way into the story and picks up where I left off last week. It’s unedited at this point, and is told from Ed’s 3rd-person POV. For those familiar with the story, this bit takes place on Ed’s way back home after his first encounter with Stan at the Farm & Feed store:

Presumably, his father had traveled this road frequently. Had he used the motorcycle often? Often enough to be familiar with the terrain from that perspective—to be aware of things that might not stand out when driving a large pickup truck? How big would a hole need to be to cause a motorcycle to wipe out? Hell, there could have been any number of factors. Distracted by a cat, a dog, a rabbit—whatever. He could have been daydreaming rather than paying as close attention as he should have done. There didn’t necessarily need to have been a hole at all.


Cultivating_Love_400Blurb

A man of few words, Joe is a hard-working farmhand who likes his simple, uncomplicated life. Ed is satisfied with his existence as an auto mechanic, but thrilled when an unexpected development in his life allows him to help Joe realize a dream.

It forces them, however, to reevaluate the casual, undefined nature of their relationship. They’re too macho to speak of love, and neither would acknowledge he doesn’t really mind when it’s his turn to bottom. When life throws them a curve ball, and the rules of their game get old, Ed tries to take every aspect of their relationship up a notch. Can Joe adapt to the open sentimentality Ed’s injecting into their relationship, let alone the new spice in their bedroom activities?

This is a previously published story that has been rewritten, expanded, and re-edited.

Author Bio

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

K.C. loves to hear from readers.

May 19, 2017 — Calibri

Also includes “Cocktail”, left in the comments of last week’s Flash Fiction Friday post.

(Mason’s 3rd-person POV)

Mason sipped Harrison’s diva daiquiri and peered over the man’s shoulder. “Who are you drunk-emailing?”

“My sister. Wha’ makes you think I’m drunk?”

“Besides the fact we finished off a bottle of wine together, and you’re now on your second cocktail?” Mason landed a light kiss to Harrison’s forehead. “There’s that wacky font you’re using.”

“It’s ‘herculanum.’” Harrison giggled through his harrumph. “My sister’s done a lot for us. She deserves better than just basic ‘calibri’ or some other boring font.”

“True.” Mason sat and covered his mouth to stifle a snicker. “Use ‘Curlz MT’ to give her my love.”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘tainted.’

May 18, 2017 — A New Low

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

Gramps passed out the dessert brownies, and Jaxon said, “I think the train at that one museum was the best thing today.”

“The stage coach was cool, too,” Gramps replied.

“Do you remember riding in them?” Jaxon grinned and had a glint in his eye.

Gramps cackled. “Whippersnapper. Remember who baked those!”

Mason rejoined them, shoving his phone into his pocket. Harrison asked, “Everything okay?”

“Yeah. Client hit a new low, but the partners can handle it. No biggie.” Mason stood behind Harrison and massaged his shoulders. “What do you say we crack open that bottle of wine this evening?”
