One pair of feet came down the stairs as Trent’s went up. Less than a minute later, strong arms enfolded him from behind. “Morning, gorgeous,” David murmured in his ear. “Sleep well?”
Leaning back against David’s warm body, Bastien nodded. “Really well. Thanks for getting me to bed.”
“You’re welcome. You practically passed out.” Bastien turned his head and accepted a soft, slow kiss from David.
“Yeah. The last thing I remember was putting on my robe.”
“What are we having for breakfast?”
“A casserole dish I found online. It takes twenty-five minutes to cook once it’s in the oven.”
“Am I diverting you?” David teased with a nip on his ear.
“Dreadfully. Don’t stop.”
A warm chuckle wafted past his ear, making him tremble. “I’ll be good and make some coffee while you whisk. Better have it in the oven by the time I have some caffeine in me. I won’t be held responsible for what a jazzed-up body can do.”
They flirted, kissed, and touched while Bastien finished the dish and put it in the oven.
“All right. Twenty-five minutes,” he said, setting the timer. “Whatever shall we do in the meantime?”
David took his hand and led him down the hall to his bedroom. “I have some ideas.”
David turned around and nodded toward the bathroom. “How about a combo shower? We can consider ourselves water conservationists.”
