“What takes you to Indy?” Lawrence asked.
“A conference.” I groaned in mock disgust. “I hate it when these things fall right before Christmas. Nobody’s focused on doing work. They’re just thinking about the holidays. You?”
“Business meeting with a client tomorrow and then Brian and I are going to the Upper Peninsula for the holidays.”
I was disappointed to find out they were going to be in Indianapolis for only one night and that their hotel was nowhere near mine. Lawrence sounded let down, too.
Was he really? I wouldn't allow myself the luxury that all of us were thinking 'what if'.
I did let myself enjoy the comfort of his arm over my shoulder. The vibration and the heat of the plane as it taxied and took off combined to make me drowsy and I dozed off with my head resting in the crook of his arm.
I woke a while later when Lawrence shifted in his seat.
“Sorry about that, Taylor,” he said apologetically. “I had to turn the other cheek.”
“‛Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand that I might touch that cheek.’”
“A scholar and good-looking,” Lawrence rumbled in my ear.
An effervescent flight attendant stepped next to Brian and flashed a blinding smile. “Something to drink?”
I saw a micro-second of hesitation as she caught sight of Lawrence’s arm over my shoulder and her smile faltered before she recovered. He ordered a vodka and Sprite, for Brian a rum and coke and I asked for red wine. I was reaching for my billfold when Brian produced his credit card and paid for all our drinks.
“Thank you. How can I ever repay you?” I asked with a wink. As if in response, the captain announced he was dimming the lights in the cabin and a few seconds later, the plane plunged into semi-darkness.
Alex Morgan was born and raised in western Oklahoma where he attended college and majored in chemistry and mathematics. Later, he moved to the Dallas area where he obtained his master’s degree and then a doctorate in analytical chemistry. He now lives in Baltimore.
He is an avid reader, particularly mysteries, since being introduced to the Hardy Boys in grade school. After reading his first Agatha Christie novel, Murder on the Orient Express, in junior high, mysteries have been one of his biggest enjoyments. He has always enjoyed reading comic books and loves the super-hero genre just as much.
Combining these two concepts, he has written two mystery novels prior to “Breathless”, in which he introduced gay, paranormal sleuth Corey Shaw. He is also the author of several gay erotica short stories published by loveyoudivine Alterotica.
