Lifeline – Shane/Daryl, Daryl/Rick, Shane/Rick

Chapter One

“Fucking pathetic,” Daryl mumbles to himself as he sets up his tent far enough away from everyone else that he can still see them, but that’s about all the contact he wants. “Shoulda left after they ditched Merle on top of the fucking building.”

“That’s no way to be, son,” Dale said from behind him.

“The hell do you know about it, old man,” Daryl asked, whipping around surprised by the sudden voice behind him. Shaking his head, he wondered how the hell he didn’t hear the fool come up behind him. Must be stuck in his own head more than he thought. That just wouldn’t do.

“I know that you’re a valuable member of this group and we’re happy to have you. Especially Carol. No one searches for her little girl like you do,” Dale continued, cautiously stepping closer.

Triangle – Zak/Aaron, Zak/Nick

Aaron had never intended for it to go this far. Never. But it had… and they did… and man… He wasn’t going to say he regretted it, because he didn’t, but maybe he should have called Nick and warned him before their next lockdown.

Instead, here he was, awkwardly sitting next to an overly energetic and happy Zak, trying hard to avoid the accusatory gaze from Nick from across the table. Maybe a text message would have been safer than a phone call, but that point was moot now. Aaron shifted uncomfortably in his seat as Zak rested his hand on his arm momentarily while telling a story. Nick’s stare never faltered. Billy sat next to Nick in a happy, ignorant daze half listening to Zak and seemingly half wondering when he was going to shut up. In his own defense, Nick had broken up with Zak, if you could call it breaking up when you never even said you were together. Then Nick had left and Zak is a needy little bitch. ‘Come do this with me,’ lead to ‘stay with me,’ which lead to something of a physical relationship he never expected to have with a man, let alone his best friend.

Night – Zak/Nick

Nick sat in his car in the driveway white-knuckling the steering wheel, engine humming softly. She just didn’t understand. Throwing the car into reverse, he slammed on the gas, careening out of the driveway, shifted and didn’t even stop for the stop sign at the end of the block. He wasn’t sure where he was going, what he was doing, or hell, where he was even spending the night. Calling friends to stay with them was out of the question. They’d want to know what the fight was about and Nick was just not ready to face up to that aspect of himself yet.

Rounding a corner, the Strip came into view. Destination finally in mind, Nick’s heart started to calm slightly. He pulled up to the first grand hotel he came across and handed the keys to the valet. “Luggage, sir?” he asked.

Liar – Zak/Nick, Nick/Aaron

Nick sat in the bar of the hotel, Zak and Aaron having both long been in bed. He knew his luck was going to run out soon and one would suspect the other and he wasn’t that great of a liar. Aaron was easy, but unexpected. He had thought that maybe Aaron had feelings for Zak, but a drunk confession and some lazy fumbling later proved different. Zak had been a natural progression and a mutual affection before it ever became physical. It was the only time he had ever seen him shy. Standing there in the hotel room, blushing as he rushed through those embarrassing words. Nick swirled the ice in his glass. That led him to now. Six months down the road, after having been building on this foundation for years, he had them both and had maintained both relationships.

Keeping a Secret – Zak/Aaron

Aaron grunted in frustration, running his hands through the older man’s hair at his hip. He hated keeping secrets, especially from one of his best friends, but damn did this secret make him feel good. Zak’s head bobbed as he groaned around the swollen cock in his mouth. Aaron felt his body tense as he bit back a moan, feeling Zak’s tongue do a wicked dance along the vein. He had been instructed to be quiet before he had been attacked. Nick’s room was right next door and any noise could make him suspicious.

Zak moaned deep as he felt the hot seed spill down his throat, gagging slightly. Aaron’s body melded into the chair as he came down from his high. Hands fumbled at his waist, his cock and clothing being rearranged so he looked presentable enough to go to dinner. Standing up, Zak straddled Aaron’s body, kissing him softly. Continue reading

A Kiss – Zak/Nick, Zak/Billy

Zak sat across from Nick at the small hotel bar, Nick’s cell phone in his hand. He had no words to explain the picture in front of him. There was nothing he could say. I’m sorry even seemed cliché. “Did you sleep with him too, Zak?” Nick asked, his words full of pain.

Zak shook his head. “No.” That was the one solace he had. It had just been a kiss. A very poorly timed, public, kiss. “Who sent this to you?”

“That doesn’t matter.” Continue reading
