Sara York

Chapter One

Josh Rand raced up the sidewalk to the house he shared with Zachary McCaffrey. Not much had changed in the few days he'd been gone. The winter weather hadn't hit North Texas, and fall wasn't a big deal with the temperature barely changing since summer in Paris, Texas. The grass still showed a little green and few leaves were on the ground. It was nothing like New York, and that's why he liked it. Josh worked his key into the lock and pushed open the door. The house was quiet but he hoped he'd caught Zach before he left for work. "Zach, I'm home. Zach, are you here?"
Silence greeted him as he raced from the den to the bedroom. His shoulders slumped as he realized once again he'd screwed up. Zach wasn't home and it would be late in the day before he saw his man. One more ding to their relationship, soon it might be too many for Zach to forgive.
He'd tried to get home on time, which would have been last night, but his plane was delayed by storms that blew across the state, downing trees and flooding roadways. Thank God the snow stayed north of them or he'd still be stuck at the airport. This was exactly what Zach feared would happen once he took the job working with corporate. Only four months doing the work he really loved and he was fucking up. Did Zach despise his job now since he was failing at their relationship? He'd made all sorts of promises and swore he'd make time for them, but there was the project in Dallas followed by one in Lubbock and Austin. He was here then there, always on the go. Something needed to change.
He had an hour before a conference call with the Houston office, and he needed to go through his emails, but also he had to get the plans finished for a multi-plex they were pitching next Thursday in Fort Worth.
He dropped to the bed and closed his eyes, rolling to Zach's side and burying his face in the pillow, breathing deep. His lover's scent filled his nostrils and he sighed. Tonight, he'd make it up to Zach.
Josh pulled out his phone and dialed Zach, hoping he would pick up. The phone rolled immediately to voicemail and he knew he had a hard sell to get them back on track. He swallowed down his fears before speaking, "Zach, I finally made it home. I'm sorry I didn't get back last night. I want to spend some special time together tonight, just you and me. I have a call in a bit that I have to be on and then I'm going to work hard for a few hours, but I really want to treat you tonight. Please call and tell me when you think you'll be home. I love you."
He hung up and wondered if he had pushed too hard and done too much wrong to make it right. When they moved in, they really didn't know each other that well. They'd tumbled into bed rather quickly once they hooked up and then he moved in. He should have waited but moving in had made sense. They were both saving money and they wanted to buy a house somewhere, maybe Houston or Dallas, depending on how Zach's job went. One thing was for sure, he wasn't tempted to move back to New York City, no matter how lucrative the offer. The aggravation of living in the city was more than he wanted. Sure, the parties and bars were plentiful, but the cost was too high, monetarily and psychologically. The city took a toll on people, leaving them wrung out and on edge. He preferred the slow pace of the south, with backyard parties and country living.
His phone vibrated and he checked the caller ID, glad to see that Zach was calling back. He answered, speaking before the phone was to his mouth. "Zach, I miss you so much."
"Thanks for calling. I couldn’t answer earlier. I didn't mean to send you to voicemail so fast."
"I thought you were mad."
"I'm not, really."
"Thank God. I was so angry when the flight didn't make last night."
"Babe, we both knew life would get difficult going into this relationship."
Josh sighed and sunk down, snuggling his head against Zach's pillow. "Thanks, so about tonight. Go out or stay in."
"Yeah, I've got plans for you."
Josh palmed the front of his pants, his dick growing hard as fantasies swirled through his mind.
"Josh, you're awfully quiet. What are you doing?"
"Fuck, you're at work. If I tell you what I'm doing, you won't forgive me easily."
Zach chuckled and Josh knew he was smiling. "Okay, tonight, we'll talk about it tonight. Now get your hand off your dick and save it for later."

Heat flooded Josh's face and he pulled his hand away from his cock. "Okay, later. Bye babe." Josh hung up and headed to the shower, washing quickly. Before he stepped out of the spray he thought about jacking off, but he wanted to save it for Zach. Work took priority and he dove into his project, waiting for the conference call to start as he began to sketch the final elements of the design.
