    Summary


    In hindsight, Joe knew he should’ve left it alone. He knew that whatever was the reason for the green-eyed teen’s small cries in the school boy’s locker room, it wasn’t any of his business. He was a gym teacher, not the school counselor, for fuck’s sake. But, he still was a teacher, and a student was in distress, so he felt like he needed to do something about it. The fact that the teen was Nicolò Di Genova, with his big, red-rimmed eyes, tear-streaked face, and the pinkest lips Joe had ever seen, had nothing to do with it.

    Joe should’ve turned around though, he knew he should’ve.

    Or, the one where Joe is a gym teacher and Nicky is his student.

    Summary

    “I don’t need cheap tricks to beat you,” Joe yells – a bit too loud. There is usually press pretty close around. “Unlike you.” He lowers his voice slightly as he takes a step closer. “Anyway. We’re in the same fucking team. Maybe you could not sabotage me for once today.”

    “I see.” That fucking smug smirk is back again. “What’s in it for me, huh?”

    Nicky is leaning against the frame of the door, one hip cocked, an arm crooked over his head. He is the picture of nonchalance, as if they are not about to risk their fucking lives in a car going over 300 kilometres an hour. He’s wearing shorts and a T-shirt that seems a size too small. And he looks fucking – edible.

    Joe’s brain short-circuits. There is no other explanation for the words coming out of his mouth.

    “If you don’t drive me off the road, I will suck your dick afterwards.”

    ***

    Or, the one where rival drivers Joe and Nicky make an ill advised bet. Or is it the best move of their life?

    Summary

    Yusuf was sweating the littlest bit under his collar, and he told himself it wasn’t from nerves. Such a feeling would be unfounded, anyway— how many times had he traveled as ambassador for his kingdom? He was far past any anxiety in new lands and with foreign peoples. He had lost count of his travels.

    But you’ve never been gone for so long, his overactive mind supplied, and never with Baba watching over your shoulder.

    What the Hell were they even supposed to do for a whole year?

    Nicky stands outside the Breeding Centre, leaflet clutched tightly in his hand. He'd never considered this previously, never thought about carrying an alien child inside him, but that was before...
