Aaron poked Nick. “These women are trying to steal you from your wife, bro,” he chided as they scrolled down the Tumblr webpage.
Nick chuckled, “Not a chance, man. Not a chance. Most of these girls are after Zak.”
“I wonder if any of them is that one girl that hid in his bushes a few months back…”
“I bet one of them is. Poor Zak. I’m sure she was just a scout. There were others hiding in the woods that would have ran and jumped him.”
Both of them laughed as Zak walked in the door of the GAC offices. “What’s so funny?” he asked. Continue reading
The castle was homey, but still dank and musty and that pissed Aaron off even more. He caught them. They were blatant. He couldn’t believe they would have the balls to do it on an investigation right under his nose. He had caught them and it was on his camera. Nick had threatened him and Zak was ashamed. Aaron had Zak on camera down on his knees. He had every right to be ashamed.
The two men walked silently in front of him. The fight had gone out of Zak. His provoking and taunting weren’t nearly as vibrant as they were earlier. Nick kept glancing back at Aaron, anger etched across his face. Aaron figured he was pissed because he didn’t get off. He had interrupted their little party. The smell of sex was still strong on them and he hated them for it. Yeah, he had figured something was going on between them. Aaron wasn’t as stupid or oblivious as everyone suspected. He just knew how to play his part. But he didn’t miss the little touches, little sideways glances and comments.

One night in particular, Nick’s bed butted up against the same wall as Aaron’s and he heard a lot more than he had wanted to. Continue reading
Aaron looked out the window at the clouds. Ten thousand feet in the air, fifteen minutes into the four hours of flight time and he was already bored. The half empty plane was eerily quiet. The hum of the engines in his ears was deafening. He could kill two birds with one stone and get half of one camera’s video done. Sighing, Aaron looked over at Zak and Nick. Zak was looking out his own window, bobbing his head to the music blasting into his ears from his Ipod. Nick was passed out next to him, seat back, and snoring softly.
Digging through his equipment bag, he pulled out Nick’s camera and his earbuds. He always volunteered to review Nick’s footage. No one had ever asked him why and he was thankful for that. Zak always talks to Nick’s camera, always gives Nick those little looks, always pays attention to Nick… That was why he always liked to review Nick’s camera. So just for that short time frame, he could pretend Zak was looking at him like that. For that moment in time, Aaron wouldn’t feel like the pesky little brother tagging along. Continue reading
