The Misty Pines Motel

Shattered Falls, CA


In a motel on the other side of town, Thorn lay in a queen-sized bed with an arm crooked behind his head, spooning a slumbering Arlene. Her hair splayed out on the pillow in front of her, leaving her porcelain face framed in her raven-colored curly locks. Her mouth slightly parted as she dozed.

Thorn turned his torso slightly from lying on his side, brushing back his shoulder length dirty blond hair, slick with moisture as if he too had just stepped out of the shower — a light misting of water covering his face, arms and chest. His muscular body glistened in the muted silvery blue light from the motel sign just outside their room. A smile, seeded with wild intent, slinked slowly across his lips.

“Whassthematter, baby?” Arlene slurred as she stirred momentarily before dozing on. Not bothering to wait for a response.

“Nothing, Ar, go back to sleep.” Sensing that she had slipped back into unconsciousness, his gaze moved back up to the ceiling again as if he could peer through it to the storm gathering outside. The gleam in his eye shimmering with a darker intensity as his smirk blossomed into a full warm smile. “Everything is just fine.”

General Disclaimer
- As I write Fictional Literature with a decidedly queer perspective, I want to make it abundantly clear that I have used imagery of male models that I feel help me convey the vision I have in my head and in my works, but in NO WAY does it imply, construe or insinuate the nature of the male model's proclivities or personal orientation. They are intended merely as a representation as near to I can come to visually describe the men in my works. All copyrights apply to their original content owners (where applicable). I make no such claim.
