Chapter 7: Sunday Morning
This is a short chapter..more of an interlude, but a very interesting one.
Jensen’s alarm went off. He stretched and lay back, thinking about the day before. Jared had made everything go smoothly. He had allowed him the time to be alone and work on his emotions. The conversation at dinner was intelligent. Jensen like that. The best part had been the movie. They watched “The Fellowship of the Ring,” and Jared was so good at describing things that Jensen felt like he was really seeing it. The professor smiled softly. Jared was a very nice man. He hoped they were becoming friends. He’d never had one before.
Jensen got up and headed into his bathroom. He turned on the water in the shower and adjusted the temperature. He liked the water to be hot. After bathing, he turned the water off and stepped out of the shower, grabbing a thick, soft towel. Hanging the towel upon the towel rack, he walked towards the door and the bathrobe hanging on it.
There was a knock on the door and Jared opened it saying “Jensen, would you like to go out and get….”
It grew quiet. Jensen froze. Jared was stunned. He looked at the man standing naked in front of him. He couldn’t help himself. His gaze wondered up and down that body.
Jared realized that Jensen was a beautiful man. How had he managed to not have a lover? His skin was flawless with a spattering of light, golden freckles on it. He suddenly had the urge to count them and lick each one. Jared knew he was getting hard, and a soft groan escaped his lips.
Jensen suddenly realize where he was and what he wasn’t wearing. He felt a sense of panic but couldn’t move. He heard the groan and had no idea why Jared had done that.
The coach, snapping out of it, said, “Jen, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have opened the door.”
“I’ve been naked in front of men before, Jared. In P.E., when we had to take a shower.”
“Yeah, me too. It’s just…well…. You’re right. I am sorry.”
“It’s all right. I was just trying to reach the robe.”
Jared removed the robe from behind the door and walked over and handed to the naked man in front of him. Jensen reached for it and their hands touched. Jared felt the other man tremble.
“Thank you, Jared.”
Jared turned to leave when Jensen called his name.
“What were you wanting to know?”
Jared turned and saw that Jensen had put on the bathrobe.
“I was going suggest we go out for breakfast this morning. Find something fun to do.”
“I’d like that.”
“Okay,” Jared whispered softly and closed the door.
