Welcome to the 78th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week a snip from Better Than Another Man...
Better than Another Man is a love story between two best friends, Bryan and Carey. Bryan is straight and Carey is gay, but they stand by each other through the milestones of their lives, including Carey’s coming out.
But when a family tragedy strikes, Bryan turns to Carey for support, and their relationship moves in an unexpected direction.
Can a straight man and a gay man enter into an intimate relationship, or will it destroy their friendship forever?
Who knows Better Than Another Man…
Carey and I had an ordinary meal out together. We’d done it a thousand times, but in this instance, I was looking at him in a whole new light. Frequently, I found myself jerking my hand back from taking his or touching him across the table. I knew that he was amused. But this was all new to me. I wasn’t sure of myself or him. Or how our friends might react to seeing us this way. Not that I’d care what they thought. I was proud of Carey.
Our interaction with each other seemed different, too. At moments we were just our typical selves, and other times it was almost flirty and teasing. The customary insulting yet playful banter took on a whole new sexual connotation.
But on the ride home, the reality of the situation sank in and I realised what might happen when we got there. I was eager yet anxious. I still felt that excited simmer in my stomach, the sensation that you get when you know it’s a sure thing and you’re going to have sex at the end of your evening. But I didn’t know how far I could go. Was it enough that I was eager for the attempt?
We entered the apartment and I felt more than uncomfortable.
“So? Your room or mine?” Carey asked, out of the blue.
I stared at him.
He grinned, taking me by the shoulder, obviously sensing my uneasiness. “Relax,” he advised. “Taking it slow. Right?”
I released a nervous laugh. “Right.”
