Love Like Lightning

Casey's never minded thunderstorms. People he might get scared of sometimes, but nature's on his side. Water's cool and cleansing on his face, and lightning reveals the nightscape with the beautiful clarity of a camera flash.

He doesn't mind them tonight either. The hard rain keeps the kids away and leaves him alone with Zeke and the chocolate. They turn out the porch light, undress in the dark, and in bright instants Casey flashes on – a plane of torso a – dark thatch of hair – tongue licking lips Zeke's – long arms reaching out. To touch him.

They roll with the thunder.
