Here’s a snippet from the followup to The Ancient. In this one, the guys have been out celebrating after Bruce received his doctorate, and he’s just a little too happy–
“I am perfectly capable of getting myself to bed, you know,” Bruce said, enunciating each word. “I—am a doctor.”
Jeffrey smiled at Bruce’s drunken, stately dignity.
“And you’re both going to drink my hangover remedy with no arguments, right?”
Bruce gave a small shudder.
“If I have to,” he said. “But I’d rather not hurl on your lap.” He wiggled his eyebrows, wearing a wicked look in those baby blues.
“I can think of better things to do with your lap.”
Shaking his head at his husband and lover, Jeffrey turned to Dane.
“And how about—-Dane?” Dane was leaning back on the couch, his head thrown back and mouth open. He was out cold.
