Exclusive Excerpt from I Wished For You

by Colette Davison

“So…” Seb began.

He opened his mouth to tell them he’d made a mistake and that he was sorry, but the words remained lodged in his throat. They would have been a lie. Instead, he lowered his chin to his chest and shoved a huge spoonful of porridge into his mouth. The consistency was miraculously fine, but it needed something to sweeten it. He waited a couple of beats for either of his friends to speak. When they remained silent, he got up and slipped into the tent, rummaging through the food Connor had packed to find some honey. Connor was nothing if not prepared.

Sitting down again, he squeezed a generous amount into his bowl and then held it out. There was an awkward pause before Connor reached out to take it from him. The distance the chairs were set at meant they both had to half stand so they could reach further. Their fingertips brushed as the bottle was passed between them. Normally, Seb would have barely noticed the contact, but he was suddenly acutely aware of the tingle he felt as their skin and eyes connected. A slight splash of colour warmed Connor’s cheeks, and he looked away abruptly, making Seb feel fucking awful.

It didn’t get any better when Connor silently passed the honey to Matt. A similar thing happened. Seb found himself fixated on the way his friends’ fingers connected at the very tips and the slight pause in the process when that connection happened. When his stare found its way back to Connor’s face, he saw that the colour in his friend’s cheeks had deepened. He was trying to conceal it by keeping his face low, but the blush was a beacon of his discomfort or possibly something else…

Seb shifted in his chair and ate more of the porridge. He brushed his musing off as wishful thinking. He was the only one struggling with how he felt about his friends. They were both probably pissed off that he’d crossed a line. Being drunk was no excuse.
