Characters were borrowed with permission.
James entered his sterile apartment intent on grabbing a beer and relaxing on his couch catching up on bad TV. It had been another long and tiring day chasing down shady drug dealers, and he just wanted to forget for a little while.
Almost tripping over a pair of scuffed up cowboy boots had him drawing his gun and following a trail of discarded clothing down the hall toward the bathroom.
Water splashing and off-key whistling had him toeing the half closed door open and finding his lover sitting in the middle of the bathtub covered in nothing but bubbles.
"No need for the gun, narco," Zayne quietly remarked as he leaned back in the tub.
"Can never be too careful these days, cowboy," James countered as he reholstered his gun and leaned against the door jam. "So what brings you to my humble abode?"
"I've missed you."
"I've missed you, too."
"Care to join me?"
"Thought you would never ask," James said as he entered the room undressing as he went.
He slid into the tub behind Zayne. He pulled the cowboy close and whispered in his ear, "I love you."
Zayne sank into James' embrace and said, "I love you more."
