We were everything to each other, once. Now we’re basically strangers. The most I get from Bradley, as we pass in the hall, is a glare or a shove against the lockers.
The problem is that I don’t mind.
I’d do anything, be anything and give anything, to be with him. Even if he is arrogant, crass, and the sexiest man in school. He’s also dominant. Over me. Only me. And I love it.
I was waiting for graduation. Until we’d left school and the constant rules, the judgments and gossip. I was waiting until I had the guts to ask Bradley to be my Dom for real. Forever.
I just never expected him to make the first move.
Warning: be prepared for no explicit content, teen drama, snark galore, and a whole lot of tension between strong Dom/sub personalities. These boys know who they are and they aren’t about to hide it.
?You’re gripping your brush too tight and pressing too hard on the canvas. Here.? Releasing his waist, Bradley moved his right hand into position, pulling it back from the canvas just an inch, while moving the brush barely half an inch, until he held it much more loosely.
?What are you doing, exactly?? he asked, blinking away the fog of his mind in an attempt to make sense.
Bradley smirked and leaned in closer to press his lips just a breath away from his cheek. ?Be gentle. The brush is an extension of yourself. Hold it as gently as you’d want me to hold your cock,? he whispered, sending a shiver up his spine.
Rory knew better than to fall for it, but he couldn’t keep his mouth shut. He licked his lips, almost licking Bradley’s in the process. ?But I like a strong grip. You should know that better than anyone,? he confessed, unafraid of admitting that fact. Only to Bradley. Though it usually frustrated him and was one of the only things he was actually ashamed of, he didn’t mind telling Bradley the truth.
Laughing, his crush brushed an all too brief kiss against the shell of his ear. ?Soon, cupcake. Very soon,? he promised, before backing away and removing all contact.
His nerves shaking so much that he splattered paint on his shoes, Rory plopped down on his stool and stared unseeing at the canvas before him.
Bradley had touched him. He hadn’t just touched him, he’d implied that it was going to happen again. Only…next time, it would be much more intimate.
