12 line excerpt:
“Master Hawkins. Please forgive me. I’m not quite thinking clearly. I must have fallen from my horse.”
What would the gentleman think of Ike’s hard on, so inappropriate given the circumstances?
The hand stopped moving and Ike thought he might have felt it quiver. He started grasping at the sheets searching vainly for his clothes.
Ike babbled to ease his bewildered mind, fearing he might say something to regret once he found his senses. A confession of a ghoulish specter that’d chased him seemed somewhat unbelievable.
“I am quite sorry to have been a bother.”
Nathaniel’s hand closed around the base of Ike’s shaft in a firm determined grip and Ike’s response was instinctual. Groaning, he arched ever so slightly, thrusting with a hiss of need into the grip.
