Today’s snippet is from my book Stoneface. The setup: This is the introduction to our two heroes, Jack and Tim. Tim obviously thinks Jack needs a little, eh, tidying up.
“Ow! What the hell are you doing?” Jackson Kelly couldn’t move because his boyfriend, Timothy Ellis, sat straddling his chest, pinning him to their bed.
“Lie still. I told you it hurts more if you move.”
“You’re a fucking sadist—ow!”
“Hold. Still.” Tim pressed his palm against Jack’s forehead to keep him in place.
“I can’t—ow!—hold fucking still, Tim! You’re ripping my goddamned face off!”
“I’m almost done.”
When Jack tried to push Tim off, Tim slapped his hand away. “Stop. Hold the fuck still.”
Jack thrashed and yelled and protested. Tim wouldn’t stop. Finally, Tim moved, letting Jack up. He put the tweezers on the bedside table. “There. You don’t look like a damn caveman anymore.” He climbed off the bed.
Jack glared at him before he went to go look at his face in their bathroom mirror, examining where Tim had yanked nose and eyebrow hairs.
“You jerk! You shaped them! I said you could get rid of my unibrow, not shape my fucking eyebrows!”
“You couldn’t tell what I was doing?”
“When it feels like someone’s ripping your nostrils out, no, you can’t!” He shot him another nasty look.
“You’re a fucking sadist.”
“You say that like it’s a bad thing. It’s not like I held you down and gave you a Brazilian, you know.”
