Excerpt

Note for Readers: You must be over eighteen to read this excerpt.

Nate begged off the next dance and returned to his table. Finishing off his scotch and soda, he signalled the waiter for another. Deciding to brave the restroom, he headed to the rear of the club. You never know what you might find in a gay bar’s restroom. Opening the door, he was pleasantly surprised to find it empty. “Excellent,” he said unzipping his fly.

After a quick wash of his hands he went back out amongst the vultures. He had several men circling his table, trying to get him to dance but Nate’s heart just wasn’t in it. Drinking though, he thought as he spotted his fresh scotch and soda on his table, now that, he felt like doing.

Sitting down, he took several sips before one of the birds of prey landed in the seat next to him. “Care to dance?” The big oaf in leather pants said. Who the hell wears leather pants in the summer?

Nate shook his head and held up his drink. “No thanks, I’m taking a break.”

The man smiled and nodded his head as he watched Nate closely. “I’ll wait for you to finish.” He ran his hand up Nate’s thigh, and narrowed his eyes.

“If you want to keep that, I’d suggest you move on.”

The guy rose and held up his hands. “Sorry,” he said as he walked off.

Nate finished his drink. The booze seemed to be hitting him hard and fast. He went to signal for another but his arm felt too heavy to lift. Noticing his vision was starting to blur, he thought he’d had enough. “Time to get myself to bed,” he slurred.

“I’ll help you with that,” the guy in the leather pants said, reaching for him.

Nate tried to get out of the man’s arms, but his body wouldn’t cooperate. What the hell was wrong with him? He felt his eyelids becoming heavier and realised he’d been drugged. “What de hell d’you pud in my dink?”

Bending over, the guy picked Nate up. “Just a little something to make you friendlier.” Nate tried to squirm his way out of the guy’s arms, but he couldn’t keep his eyes open.

He heard a voice that sounded like Rio’s, a split second before he was grabbed out of the man’s arms. He managed to open his eyes enough to see Ryan holding him. “Drugged,” he slurred slowly. “Need ta be sick.”

Ryan looked at him for several seconds before looking back at Rio. “Take out the trash, while I see if we can get this thrown up.”

Holding him close to his chest, Ryan carried him back to the restroom. Ryan sat down on the floor of one of the stalls and leaned him up toward the toilet. “Can you stick your finger down your throat?”

Nate felt his head fall back, helplessly. “Shit,” Ryan said seconds before Nate felt a long finger work its way into his mouth. Ryan poked the back of his throat several times but Nate didn’t gag enough to throw up. “Come on, baby, we have to get it up.” Ryan tried again, using two fingers while applying pressure to his stomach.

Coughing, Nate finally was able to gag enough to throw up most of the several drinks he’d consumed. He felt another set of hands holding his head above the toilet and new Rio was with them in the tiny stall.

“Get a wet paper towel,” Ryan told Rio. Seconds later, a cold towel was pressed to his forehead as another wiped his face and mouth.

“You think he got it all up?” Rio asked.

“Enough I think. He’ll be dopey for a while, but I don’t think it’ll be enough to do any damage.”

He was picked up again, only this time it was Rio who cradled him. Nate snuggled against Rio’s chest. He turned his face enough to place a kiss on the skin visible above Rio’s T-Shirt, feeling the vibration of Rio’s groan as he made his way through the club.

The next thing Nate knew he was in Rio’s arms in the backseat of Ryan’s rental car. “Hotel,” Nate said still slurring a bit, although he was feeling more alert.

“Think we should take him there, or back to the apartment?” Rio asked Ryan.

“Which hotel?” Ryan asked.

“Around the block, key card’s in my billfold. Room two-forty-six.” Nate was starting to feel a little better, but he didn’t let on because he didn’t want Rio to put him down. He felt the car start and pull away from the curb.

Within moments, Ryan pulled up to the front of the hotel. “You go ahead and take him in, and I’ll find a place to park and be up in a minute.”

“You think you can walk? They might look at us funny if I go carrying a grown man into a hotel lobby.”

“Think so,” Nate mumbled. He ended up having to rely heavily on Rio for support, but he made it to the elevator. “You’ll have to get my wallet for me.”

“Gladly,” Rio said reaching his hand inside Nate’s back pocket.

Nate moaned as Rio seemed to take his time. They were walking down the hall to their room and Rio was still fumbling around in Nate’s jeans. When they stood in front of his room, Nate faced the wall and stuck his butt out toward Rio.

“Tease,” Rio said in his ear as he finally pulled the wallet out.

“Not teasing,” Nate said as he turned around to face Rio.

Picking him up, Rio lifted him until they were eye to eye, Nate’s legs automatically wrapped around Rio’s torso as he leaned in for a kiss. Snaking his tongue out, Rio licked at the seam of Nate’s lips until he thrust inside. Fuck, Rio tasted good. Nate felt his cock throb in the close confines of his jeans. He ground his groin against Rio’s as their kiss went even deeper. Rio started humping him right there in the hallway, and Nate couldn’t have been more turned on.

“Goddamn that’s hot,” Ryan said, coming up beside them. “Where’s the fucking key card, let’s get into the room before we all get arrested.”

Without stopping, Rio held up the billfold.

Digging for the key card, Ryan grunted. “I swear, if the two of you come without me, I’m gonna kick some ass.” Ryan opened the door and pulled them both inside.
