Exclusive Excerpt from Zero Divergence
by Aimee Nicole Walker
The shrill alarm pierced Royce’s turbulent sleep a few hours later. Sawyer reached over him and quickly shut it off before resting his head on Royce’s chest.
“I feel like roadkill,” Royce groused, trying to open his heavy eyelids.
Sawyer kissed his cheek, then rolled out of bed. “You look like it too.”
Royce found enough energy to lift his right arm and flip Sawyer off, earning a chuckle. “My eyes feel gritty, as if someone buried my face in sand.”
“It was Bones’s litter box,” Sawyer quipped. Someone was full of piss and vinegar this morning. “I think you should skip the workout and stay in bed longer.” His voice grew softer as he walked away from the bed. Seconds later, water splashed into the sink basin in the master bathroom, and Royce figured Sawyer was brushing his teeth. Then his sainted boyfriend returned to their bedroom and draped a warm, damp rag over his closed eyes.
Royce sighed as the soothing heat had an immediate effect. “That feels good.” Not as lovely as Sawyer’s mouth working his dick or even the first sip of morning coffee, but it was what he needed most.
“Sleep, Ro. I’ll wake you up in plenty of time to shower and wash the kitty litter out of your hair.”
“Asshole,” Royce groused before he drifted back to sleep.
