Edric Wilcher has realized growing up that there are simply two things in this world he can never imagine his life without—music and coffee. This is the reason why he chooses the life of a famous rock star—at least, famous in his own small town, and then, goes ahead and opens up Rockstar’s Hideout Café. Every morning he serves his regulars and has a nice, long chat with them before they go back to their daily routine. His charms work wonders on them. Thanks to the good genes bestowed upon him, he doesn’t look half bad. So, it strikes him as odd that this new customer who walks in that morning carrying a heap of books doesn’t seem to even spare him a second glance.
“Coffee” is what he orders and Ed goes out of his way to make him feel special. But the redheaded nerd—okay, a cute nerd, probably cutest he’s seen in his life—just leaves with his books, leaving even the muffin-on-the-house completely untouched. The mystery surrounding this guy gets the best of Ed and when he finds a book left behind by this customer, he can’t help follow the trail to see him just one more time. Even if it is to get a name.
Dean Harrett has somehow misplaced the one thing that was supposed to help him out of his current problems—and that thing is not a cheesy, romance novel. What matters to him the most is what he’s kept in the book—the perfect plan that can make or break his future. And that book has gone now. Only if he can remember where he’s last seen that book…
Of course! The café, where that annoying barista just wouldn’t leave him alone so he had to leave.
But now Dean has to get back there and look for himself before anyone can lay their hands on it. He doesn’t even want to think about the worst-case scenario of someone finding out what he is up to. But this only means he will have to face the annoying, but handsome barista again. Ugh!
For no reason whatsoever, his thoughts jumped back to the library’s reading room, where he’d sat with Edric earlier that day. Thinking about the guy, gave him a distinct courage. He knew he had that annoyingly happy smile on his lips again.
Dean bit his lower lip and closed his eyes. He rested his head back as imagination filled his mind again. What if he could have shared a kiss—or maybe something more—hidden away from all the peering eyes, somewhere in the maze of bookshelves? His teeth dug deeper into the soft flesh of Ed’s lips, nibbling on it till they’d become swollen. He could easily fantasize how tender it would be. A tender brush of his tongue on those fuller lips would send shivers through his whole body.
“Edric,” he whispered his name, as he sank into his bed. His hands automatically finding the length of his erect cock.
He liked that name so much—the way it simply rolled off his tongue. It sounded like desire.
“Tell me what you want me to do, baby,” he’d ask him, raising his eyes to look at him. His pupils would be dilated—irises would shine with lust. He’d recognize the fire in them, the hunger for more.
And yet, Ed would wait for him to tell him what he wanted.
Dean swallowed hard.
Ed’s gaze in his fantasy world felt like a physical touch that would plant shivers wherever it landed. “Do you want me, Dean?” He would ask again, and a moan would escape Dean’s throat, giving away his excitement before he could even say anything.
Of course, Dean wanted him, he’d wanted that hunk ever since he’d laid eyes on him in that library. He wanted his hard body against his skinny form, his forehead resting against his, their nostrils flaring with desire, and breathing heavily.
“I want to be yours, Edric,” he whispered into an empty apartment, as he came all over again.
Dean kept his eyes closed, letting his head indulge in that sweet illusion for a little while longer. He wasn’t sure if his fantasy involving Edric Wilcher would ever come true, but in the meantime, he’d let the imaginary version in his head satisfy his urges.
Tonight, he was going to bid goodnight to Dean the shy-and-scared guy, and resurrect the daring hacker within him, that he’d buried way back in the past, and maybe then—if everything went well—he’d be able to stay and give a chance to whatever there could be between him and Edric.
His face blushed. Even whispering his name made his back arch with pleasure now. How was he going to survive the casual meetup they’d planned for the next day?
Arden O’Keefe has several passions and reading is one of them. It is through reading the works of several loved authors that O’Keefe was inspired to craft out some personal creations. The muse never stops to motivate and that’s how the story of Edric and Dean just developed by itself. This is where O’Keefe begins the journey hoping that it doesn’t end anytime soon.
