STEW BRANNIGAN RIDES AGAIN
By Hank Edwards
Stew rounded the corner of the canned soup aisle and ran smack dab into none other than Jarrod Gammon. A flare of pain fireworked into life in his left hip as he twisted to avoid the brunt of the collision, and Jarrod flinched himself as he turned his shoulders.
"Sorry, there, Jarrod," Stew said. "Didn't see you."
"All good, Stew," Jarrod returned as he rolled his shoulder back. He'd lived in the south long enough to pick up a drawl and it coated each word with a sweet, sexy icing. He nodded down to Stew's basket filled with canned goods. "I see you're restocking the bachelor pantry ahead of the storm."
"Yup. You look to be doing the same. Name brand though. Fancy."
"I like a certain ambiance when I open a can, "Jarrod replied, surprising a laugh out of Stew.
"You're pretty funny when you're not being pitched off a bronco," Stew said.
"Back at ya, when you're not being stomped on by a bull."
Ouch. Point, Jarrod Gammon.
"Well, Jarrod, it was good to catch up, but it's time for this old guy to go stand in line for twice as long as it'll take me to drive back home."
"How are things out at the Fork in the Road Trailer Estates?"
Stew shrugged. "Could be worse. There could actually be a fork in the road out there, and then the directions to get to my place would be twice as difficult."
Jarrod grinned. "You ready for the storm? It's going to get deep they say. Twelve inches, at least." Jarrod's eyes seemed to glow as he said it. "That's a lot of anything, don't you think?"
Stew regarded Jarrod a moment, took in the younger man's grin and the way his gaze had zeroed in on Stew's own. Deciding that it was Christmas Eve and he could claim he was drunk off an early celebratory six pack if Jarrod reacted poorly, he said, "Nine inches tends to be my limit. But I've been known to be able to make ten work."
Sex filled the space between them, almost a third party to their conversation. The air grew thick with pheromones, just like Stew had learned about in that animal husbandry class he'd taken at the community college.
"Think you'll get snowed in out there?" Jarrod asked, his voice lower now, his gaze much more serious.
"Yup." Stew nodded but couldn't pull his gaze from Jarrod's eyes. "Probably take all y'all a week at least to get the road plowed and work your way into the streets of Fork in the Road."
"Yup, probably. Couple of men could do a lot of plowing themselves during that time," Jarrod said.
Stew's cock roared to life, hungry, horny, and eager. "Yup. If they had a mind to."
"My mind's made up," Jarrod said. "It's been made up for years now, just didn't know how to ask."
"You know what number I'm at?"
"I'll be expecting to hear your plow truck at the end of your shift," Stew heard himself say. "If you got the balls to show up." He started to walk away, then turned back. "And bring some of those name brand can goods you're so high and mighty about."
