“Jak?” asked Landon as he pushed closer to the phoenix’s sleepy warmth.

When Jak didn’t respond, Landon slid his hand under the blanket and dragged his palm down Jak’s bare chest. He tweaked one of Jak’s nipples, then stroked it gently until it hardened. Then he reached lower, letting his fingers tease the hair by Jak’s navel on his way to the elastic band of Jak’s underwear. He stroked Jak’s soft cock over the fabric, but when that cock began to fill, hardening quickly with morning anticipation, Landon pulled down Jak’s trunks and took him in hand with a firm grip.

He listened as Jak’s breathing picked up. Felt as Jak’s hips began to gyrate, unconscious thrusts into Landon’s hand. He watched, with a fascination that never seemed to dim no matter how many nights they shared together, as Jak’s body took on a darker and more violet coloring. Handsome feathers burned into being like tendrils of flame. Wings, so large they could fill the bedroom, uncurled only to drape across Landon in a sleepy embrace.

When Jak’s breath hitched and his hips stuttered, Landon leaned forward and kissed Jak on the lips. “Fuck me,” he requested.

Jak gave a groan and cracked his eyes open. “You’re going to make me work? This early in the morning?” His voice held a tired rasp that never failed to stir Landon’s blood.


With another groan, Jak stretched, arms above his head, hips pushing against Landon insistently and his legs tightening. His wings gave a massive shudder, tickling across Landon’s skin, before they collapsed, leaving him in a dark cocoon smelling of Jak’s musk.

“Very well,” said Jak. “You better make me breakfast.”

Landon made a sound of refusal into Jak’s neck. “There’s vodka in the freezer and orange juice in the fridge.”
