Happy weekend, Snippetteers! I’m later (again). Yesterday was a lazy day – very unusual for me. I went running with my friend and my dog first thing in the morning and went to the supermarket, and that was about all. I never get the chance to relax, so I did just that. Anyway, he’s a teaser from Favourite Toy 2.

It’s a few weeks later, after Remy lets Ryan off the hook, and the housemates go to a club. Ryan is in a bad mood.

The last thing on my mind was hooking up, and I downed a few more drinks while I watched Dean and Casper practically humping on the dancefloor, along with many other couples. Remy danced, too, with a girl and a guy he knew from work. He had his back to me and I stared, taking in the details of his newly-cut and bleached hair that he’d gelled into a fancy spiked-up arrangement. He wore the blue shirt he’d been wearing that day we met up in the pub to talk, and white jeans. He turned my way a little, laughing at something the girl was shouting to him over the music.
“Why don’t you get out there with whoever it is you’re gawking at?”
“Huh?” I jumped at Casper’s voice in my ear and my face heated.
“Your tongue’s practically hanging out of your mouth. Who is he?”
“Fuck off, Casper. I wasn’t looking at anyone in particular,” I grunted.
“Suit yourself. You know, you’re less grouchy when you have someone to shag, even if they’re not a permanent fixture.”
I scowled. “Where’s Dean? I thought you were dancing.”
“He’s gone for a piss.”
“Well, why don’t you go and hold it for him and get out of my face?”
