Tyler leaned closer so his shoulder was pressed to Linden’s, sending a warm feeling spreading through him from their contact points. Every time Tyler moved, Linden felt how the firm muscle of his arm extended and flexed. “His sister died of an overdose. Dimas wouldn’t even drink beer.”
“Okay, that’s a good start.” Linden put the mug down and took his phone in hand, typing a quick e-mail to Randy. “I still have a signal. What’s the ranger-station number?”
“Won’t matter. The roads will be impassable right now. Once it stops snowing, off-road vehicles can get through. There is cross-country ski equipment in the garage,” Tyler said.
Linden glanced at the phone, then set it on the table again. “That’ll leave us too exposed. When we do leave, I want to take that tracker from your truck. It’ll help prove you didn’t leave this area in the time frame you would’ve had to.”
“What happens when we can leave?”
“You and I are going back to the field office in Arizona. If the person here doesn’t come after us, there probably isn’t much we can do to find him… or her. The fact is, however, until this is all cleared up, you’re not safe here.” Linden stopped and twisted to look out the glass wall. “I’m not sure I’m all that safe either.”
Tyler laid one hand on Linden’s knee. “I have the feeling if you hadn’t come here, something really bad would have happened to me by now.” He shifted around so he faced Linden. “We should probably… uh… eat our….”
Linden looked into Tyler’s eyes, completely enamored by their colors. He wasn’t inclined to rash actions. He normally thought everything through. Linden’s cock had other ideas, however, and rarely thought at all. He sucked in a quick breath when his cock grew hard enough to press against his zipper, sending a tingling sensation through him. Tyler glanced down, smiled, and blushed. He put his hand over Linden’s and squeezed. The simple action caused Linden’s heart rate to ramp up. With his free hand, Linden reached up and stroked Tyler’s cheek, then ran his fingers through Tyler’s messy blond hair. Tyler’s skin was as pale as Linden’s was dark, and the contrast fascinated him.
Without really giving it any more thought, Linden leaned forward, pulling Tyler toward him at the same time. He brushed his lips lightly over Tyler’s a few times, then ran his tongue across Tyler’s lower lip. When Tyler groaned and got one hand up and fisted in Linden’s shirt to tug him even closer, Linden slid his tongue between Tyler’s lips. Linden let go of Tyler’s hand and inched his arm around Tyler’s waist.
Tyler stretched out and leaned back until he was more under Linden. He groaned and arched against Linden, grinding their hips together. Linden broke their kiss, moaned softly, and licked along Tyler’s jawline. He nudged Tyler’s head back farther and sucked lightly along his neck, pausing to swirl his tongue over Tyler’s Adam’s apple. Tyler’s hands roamed up and down Linden’s back, leaving a trail of heat in their wake. They rocked together against each other, bodies heating, breath quickening, and in Linden’s case, heart hammering.
Linden’s phone chimed.
