Much to his chagrin, a straight boy ends up enjoying sex with a gay man. An adult work, Tricked is a single story from the Carnal series.

In “Tricked,” Jimmy Manley learns something he didn’t know about hustling gay men from Roger Bones, a high school dropout and ne’er do well. For a small fee—and unbeknownst to poor Jimmy—Roger has offered a gay man from the local mall a taste of young Jimmy’s “rod.” If Jimmy can hold it together, he will learn some surprising things about himself, hustling gay men, and maybe even earn a few dollars for himself. In the small town of Carnal, everyone is driven by desire, and no one leaves town a virgin.

Summer Shorts are brief, erotic stories, just long enough to get you sizzling. Each story takes place in the small town of Carnal, where it’s always burning, no matter what the season.

Excerpt of Tricked

Jimmy Manley shares the cramped backseat of a Volkswagen with two men that he does not know. Roger Bones sits up front, in the passenger seat.

The man sitting next to Jimmy slips his hand onto Jimmy’s thigh.

Jimmy’s body goes tense, but he tries his best to act natural. Jesus, not here, he thinks. Not now. He twists his lean frame, trying to protect his middle. His cock.

The man sitting next to Jimmy is Sven. His knees tent on the car’s center hump. His blonde hair is cut short, like a Marine, and he speaks with a clipped accent that Jimmy can’t place. With his hand still on Jimmy’s thigh, Sven bends his head toward the ear of the man on his other side—the only way to be heard above the din of wind noise that fills the car.

Jimmy can feel his dick swelling unbidden in his jeans. He swallows and looks out his window. He’s a good looking boy. Olive skin in sharp contrast to the ribbed white tank top stretched over his lean frame.

Sven isn’t moving his hand, but he isn’t removing it either.

Jimmy keeps his eyes on the rolling fields passing by. A quiver passes through his bony shoulders, down his strong sinewy arms. With a gentle squeeze, Sven removes his hand from Jimmy’s thigh.

Jimmy feels relieved.

He glances toward Roger. The wind whips his soft brown hair about his head. Had Roger not dropped out of high school, he would have been in Carnal’s senior class with Jimmy. Both boys are eighteen, but Roger is clearly dominant. Jimmy feels lucky to hang out with him. The other boys in Roger’s crowd—an elite group of toughs—wouldn’t even give Jimmy the time of day. Roger waves his slender hands in the air as he talks to the man driving. Although Roger is shouting, Jimmy can’t make out a thing he says. The driver points to his ear and shakes his head.

Roger grins, his brown eyes glittering. He brushes the hair back from his forehead, closes his eyes, and rests his head on the seat. With the curls dancing on his head, Jimmy thinks Roger has the face of an angel.

Jimmy had an idea how the afternoon might play itself out back in the mall. Roger left Jimmy standing alone and raced off to greet these men. After striking up a conversation, Roger pointed to Jimmy from across the wide corridor. Sven scrutinized Jimmy and Jimmy knew right then which way things were headed. When Roger returned, announced his plan, Jimmy was coy. He felt the butterflies in his stomach, even as his dick swelled in his pants.

He hid his erection.

“Why can’t we find girls to suck our dicks?” he asked.

Jimmy asked this with such earnestness Roger laughed.

Roger looked at Jimmy expectantly and no one said anything for a beat. People in the mall floated past. Finally Jimmy nodded.

Roger grinned. He tucked Jimmy under his arm.

Led him toward the parking lot.

      1. Aloha Huck,

        Loved it!! Thanks for the coupon but I paid for it. Fairs fair. And well worth it too. I REALLY enjoyed that Huck. You can write!!! What a sizzling story that was. I loved it. Thank you so much.

        The level of emotion and sexual tension and show in this were superb. Most of my personal crit of erotica is that it’s mechanical ‘sound’ but in THE end, boring.. this was not. It’s the emotion that makes any story ping. And this PINGED.

        Thank you… fantastic. Aloha Meg 🙂
