“Make it go away,” Jay whispered against his lips. “Make it stop.” He pressed his mouth against Josh’s one more time. “I need this desperate ache to end.”
Josh avoided the other man’s gaze. “I can’t do anything, Jay.” He sighed. “The only way it will stop is if we’re together.”
“Then tonight, my place.” Jay placed a finger under his chin and gently lifted Josh’s head. “Eight o’clock.”
“I won’t take no for an answer, Josh. I’ll see you tonight.”
Jay’s blue eyes bore into his, demanding he accept the invitation.
“All right,” Josh said.
Seemingly satisfied, a brief smile crossed Jay’s face. He ran his fingers through his hair and straightened his tie. Giving Josh a small wave, he returned to the office area.
Josh hurried to the bathroom. He locked himself in a cubicle and sat down on the closed toilet seat. He cradled his head in his hands. He shouldn’t have accepted Jay’s invitation and he shouldn’t have led the other man to believe that one night of passion would be enough for them. Josh rubbed his eyes. Tonight the sex would be frenzied, wild, born out of desperation after days being apart. Neither would be satisfied. Content, perhaps, but they would crave more.
The mating pull was always like that. The desire for each other would never end. It would become manageable if they were together, but it was everlasting. Heck, he remembered his parents always kissing or smiling at each other. He had wished for something similar, but with Jay he’d made a mistake.
What was he going to do?
Jay didn’t really want him and Josh didn’t want to be with someone that didn’t fully care for him. He didn’t want to ask his parents for help and there was only one other person that could maybe assist him. With trembling fingers, Josh reached for the phone in his back pocket. He stared at the black screen for an instant. It had been months since they’d spoken and they hadn’t ended in good terms.
He dialed the number, mildly surprised that he still remembered it so well. He held his breath as he waited for him to pick up. He wouldn’t recognize the number as Josh had changed it soon after they’d separated. On the third ring, a deep male voice answered.
The hairs on the back of Josh’s neck stood. He chewed on the inside of his cheek, incapable of finding his ability to speak.
“Hello, anybody there?” Anthony asked. He sounded mildly irritated. “ Hello?”
“Anthony?” Josh whispered.
Josh closed his eyes. He could picture the man on the other side of the line. The shock he no doubt felt at that moment wouldn’t show on his masculine features. He’d hide it under a mask of sullen anger. His dark brows would knit together and his lips would purse. Agitated, he would drum the desk in front of him, the silver rings clanging against the solid wood.
