Happy weekend, Snippetteers!
In my last post I mentioned I was just about to head off on a camping and hiking trip. I had a fabulous time, camping for 3 nights, 3 full days’ hiking in the mountains and the weather was perfect – cool but dry. My favourite place in the world is the Lake District in the north west of England, and this trip was my third there this year. It’s 240 miles away, but worth the long journey. I managed to tick off 5 more mountains on my list of 214 “Wainwrights” I’m aiming to climb – total done now is 40. Long way to go!
Anyway, time for this week’s snippet. Last week I posted from Favourite Toy, which I’m planning to re-release and follow up with its sequel. The morning after Dean’s latest one night stand, he sees his housemate before going to work.

“Shit, I’m late.” Gulping a blackberry smoothie, I glared at the clock on the microwave and wished I hadn’t stayed so long with Wes. Drinking and fucking on a work night never ended well for me.
“You’re working today?” Ryan sauntered into the kitchen, wearing only underwear and scratching his stomach.
“You know I am.”
“Yeah. Forgot. Did you make coffee?”
“No. No time. Where’s Twinkletoes? Did you bring him back?”
Ryan grinned. “His name’s Danny. He’s freshening up before the next round. How did your night go?”
“That bad, huh? He was pretty hot.”
“Yeah. I nearly fucking fell asleep. Forty-five quid for a fucking taxi back.”
“Where the hell were you?”
Ryan snorted and switched on the kettle. “I don’t know why you don’t just bring them back here. Wouldn’t it be easier?”
“You know why.” Grabbing my gym bag, I checked the contents and added a bottle of water from the fridge and a couple of bananas.
“Yeah, you don’t want them to know where you live. It’s not like they’re going to come around knocking on the door if you tell them to fuck off in the morning. Most guys don’t like rejection, Dean.”
