It's nearly July, not long to wait now for the beginning of M/M's Hot July Days and I, for one, am excited to read all the delicious stories everyone has come up with to go with the photos they picked.
So...how about a little taste of my story, based on the prompt and the photo posed by the lovely Desert Rose...

The sleeping face beside him was so familiar, and yet it was as though he was seeing it for the first time. How had they got here? Where did they go from here? Did they sweep it under the carpet? Laugh it off as a one-time thing, never to be mentioned again?

He had no idea what they were supposed to do now – what etiquette you were meant to follow after you had sex with your best friend.

A totally, ordinary, average, run of the mill evening of basketball and beer...
I hope that entices you to check out Hot July Days...see you next Friday !
