Exclusive Excerpt from The Longer You’ll Stay
by Logan Grey
“Okaaay, fine,” Bailey grumbled, dragging the first word out into a whine.
Travis chuckled at his pout, but he didn’t put up a fight as Travis led the way out of the front door, the warm night air welcoming after the crowded party. Tugging out his phone, he scheduled an Uber and held onto Bailey.
“It feels so fucking good outside,” Bailey shouted with enthusiasm, glancing up at the sky. “The North is always cold as hell.”
“I can confirm that,” Travis agreed with a chuckle.
“I love the West Coast.”
“We’re not technically the coast here in Nevada. We’re land locked,” Travis teased.
Bailey squeezed his hand and glanced over with a droll expression. “I know, but we’re still out west. I love it here. What are we waiting on?” He rocked back onto his heels as he asked the last question, glancing around as if trying to figure it out for himself.
“The Uber, we need a ride back to the bus.”
He rocked forward onto the flat of his feet and stumbled, and Travis tightened his grip to catch him before he face-planted. A chuckle escaped and he couldn’t help but adore drunk Bailey.
“You’re goofy,” Travis remarked, and tugged him close. He stumbled into Travis’s side and he used it to his advantage, wrapping his arm around Bay’s waist and holding him to his side.
“You’re hot,” Bay retorted, smirking as he returned the embrace, sliding one of his hands into Travis’s back pocket and squeezing.
Travis coughed out a laugh and tried to slide away, but Bay only sidled closer and wrapped his other arm around Travis. They were pressed chest to chest, and even though Bay’s eyes were a little unfocused, he had a dumb grin on his face when he looked down at Travis, and it made his stomach flip in excitement.
“Glad you think so,” Travis teased and met his gaze.
His brows furrowed. “Think what?”
Lips twitching in amusement, Travis reminded him, “That I’m hot.”
“Oh, yeah. So hot,” Bailey replied and groped his ass again.
Travis slid one hand to Bailey’s wrist behind his back and gripped tight, trying to tug his hand away as headlights flashed over them. “We can explore that more on the bus. For now, our ride is here.”
