Grabbing the bottle of shampoo, Eric nudged Jay forward a step. “Tilt.” He lathered up Jay’s hair then turned them carefully around so he could massage Jay’s scalp while he rinsed the shampoo away.
“We need to do that again,” Jay said, swaying slightly on his feet.
“Your hair is clean.”
Jay laughed softly. “Not that. Last night… that. Like right now.” His fingertips pressed against Eric’s groin, moving in small, insistent circles.
Eric kissed Jay’s long neck. “We will. Not daily, though, I haven’t got the energy for it.” Eric was starting to get a better feel for Jay’s mental state. Navigating the afterward of a first time for something this passionate could be tricky. Eric was determined not to screw it up. Telling Jay he’d have to wait and doing it the wrong way might be misconstrued as rejection on Jay’s part. Eric could take the blame and not suffer for it. They’d both be happier in the long run for his little white lie, which was only half lie anyway. “Takes a lot out of me.” He moved so he could whisper into Jay’s ear. “Besides, waiting makes it so much better. I’ll say when the next time is, keep you guessing and wanting.”
Turning in his arms, Jay smiled and oozed slowly to his knees. His fingertips pressed lightly along the ridges between Eric’s abs before his hands glided down. He pressed warm, open-mouth kisses to Eric’s belly, working his way to the hair between Eric’s legs. Winding his fingers in Jay’s hair, Eric gave a gentle tug when Jay licked and sucked a path along Eric’s hardening cock. “Not… now.”
“Please. I want to,” Jay panted.
The light bulb went off slowly; Eric’s brain was fast losing blood to his penis. Jay might have seemed cheerful and fine outwardly, but he was in need of reassurance and care. If it was necessary for Jay to be a bit clingy for a while, so be it—Eric didn’t mind one bit. In fact, he rather enjoyed the feeling spreading through his chest it provided.
Eric didn’t want to do or say something that would imply Jay was anything but highly important. “My knee is still creaky from the last time we tried something in here.” Eric reached to the faucet handles and cranked the cooling water off. “Hot water is getting scarce anyway.” He reached down and gripped Jay firmly under the arm, guiding him to his feet.
Jay lavished Eric’s shoulders and neck with sloppy kisses while Eric steered them out of the shower, through the bathroom, and to the bed. There he laid Jay on his side and took him slowly, leisurely bringing them both to a sluggish, thumping climax that bordered on lazy.
Jay threw one arm over Eric’s broad chest and bent the other, tucking it under his head. He looked at Eric, grinning. “I got you to do that before coffee, didn’t I?”
