From my brand new release: Cid. Here is the blurb for this new work:
Ask 26-year-old artist Cid Walker how he’s feeling and you’ll likely get a snarl, or a glare, but not a real answer. Cid’s soul is so damaged from a brutal and savage ex-fiancé that trusting anyone is out of the question.
Two classmates try to get his attention; Barry and Kellen. Barry is only 18 and a very naïve, sweet boy-next-door type who is young, needy, and anxious to get involved with the mysterious artist. He wants to be with Cid more than anything, but his efforts fail.
Kellen, all of 22, is as snarky as Cid is at first, but soon manages to get across to him. Kellen understands why Cid is acting out because Kellen is also keeping his soul and psyche intact with mere Band-Aids after being attacked a few years ago.
Add in a stalker that won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and you have Cid’s life at the moment. Who can get through his broken heart?
We pick up right from where we left off; and a regulation size snippet to boot 🙂
Cid shut his eyes and let out a slow, measured breath. “Holy crap.”
“Is that a yes?” Barry jibed.
“Fine. Yeah. Have a seat, I guess.”
Not the warmest invitation, but at least he didn’t tell him to fuck off.
They ate in silence for a long moment and Cid eyed what his classmate had bought; a grilled cheese with a side of tomato soup. It seemed an odd choice for a warm day, but why did he care? Maybe his classmate had low blood pressure or something.
