Yep. I did it again. I attempted to write something for the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads’ annual short story event, this year dubbed “Love Has No Boundaries“. Here’s how it works: group members are asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group then select a photo and prompt that speaks to them and write a short story.
So, here is the prompt I picked for my story, THE BEST PART. Links to download the story are available in pdf, mobi or epub at: mmromancegroup.com. The event features over 180 free stories, so if you enjoy M/M fiction or just want to see what all the fuss is about, I highly recommend you check it out. Anyway, enjoy!
Prompt for THE BEST PART, By Penny Wilder:
Who are you and what have you done with my best friend? You think you know a guy and then, wham, it seems like I know nothing at all.
My previously shy and somewhat geeky best friend seems to have been hiding a few things from me. For example, pink underwear— what the hell? And when did he acquire that ripped body and those tats? And why is he undressing in my kitchen? And why, oh why, am I even noticing his body and feeling the overwhelming desire to touch his skin and trace that intricate pattern with my tongue? He’s a guy! And my best friend! How did this happen and what else has he been hiding from me? I can’t breathe…
A super-hot man is stripping in what appears to be a kitchen. He has an extremely fit and tanned body, with a ripped six-pack and muscular thighs. He has tattoos outlining his torso and across his lower abs that trail down his pelvis into his nicely-packed pink Emporio Armani bikini briefs. He is pulling a pale pink sweater over his head.
