Trevor is young, rich and single; completely open and out about who he is, unwilling to hide it from anyone. Cody is shy and inexperienced, exploring the desires he secretly craves to fulfill for the first time. Unknowingly, they venture down a path which neither of them could have ever imagined.
“I’m Trevor,” he said smiling broadly, stretching out his hand.
“Hi, I’m Cody,” I said shaking his hand.
He held my hand longer than I was used to and I gazed at the rings on his fingers and the bracelets on his wrists.
“How did you know what I was drinking?”
“I noticed you as soon as you walked in,” he said, seductively, smiling.
“Yeah, I’ve never seen you before. You must be new.”
“Oh,” I half smiled back, “I’ve never been here before. It’s my first time.”
“Thought so,” he continued, in between swigging on his beer and checking me out.
“Huh?” I replied, leaning closer towards him, unable to hear him above the music.
“C’mon,” he shouted above the blaring disco music as he grabbed the beer bottles off of the bar, “follow me.”
“Here,” he said sitting down, closely, next to me at a table, “This is better.”
“It is, I can hear you now.” I agreed.
“You’re really cute,” he started, “but you look really young. How old are you?”
“Just turned twenty one,” I stated proudly.
“Sweet,” he said grinning deviously, “but you look younger...”
“I get that a lot…” I replied.
“It’s cool, I’m twenty three. Not too old for you is it?”
“No idea yet,” I replied nervously.
“Can I ask you something?”
“Yeah,” I replied.
“Have you done anything yet?”
“Yeah, you known, been with another guy?”
“Oh, no. Not yet.”
“Hot. But you want to?”
“I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.”
“Guess that’s why you’re here,” he chuckled.
“Yeah, I suppose so, I’m curious…”
“How about you?” I asked.
“Me?” he said proudly, “I’ve been out awhile. Can’t ya tell?”
I could actually. He had an air of confidence about him, secure in knowing who he was, not caring about what anyone else thought. He had long blonde hair and stunning blue eyes. He was almost androgynous looking. I couldn’t help but not look at him as I had followed him from the bar, gazing at his lean and slender body.
Even now, I'm not sure the word writer is appropriate. I like to write, but even more I love to tell a great story. Perhaps storyteller is a better fit. I've been writing on and off since high school, but it hasn't been until recently that I've had the time to sit and commit to being serious about it. I'm experimenting with what works for me personally, the style and depth which brings me the greatest personal satisfaction.
In reading the reviews, it is the emotions, the tears which humble me, being able to connect with the readers on such a level is deeply fulfilling. The cold, stark reality of publishing is that very few of us as writers and authors will derive any monetary value from these ventures. I choose to share my works, and a piece of my soul, with those who care to read them. A gracious, heartfelt review is priceless, worth more than gold.
I've been telling stories for a long time now, I've just decided it was time to write about them.
