Tony Porter and Marc Powell had lived in the same house for the past eight years, since their single parents moved in together. When Tony’s mother Marie and Marc’s father Dennis decide to tie the knot at last, it should be an occasion of great joy for everyone. Except all Marc can think about is having to spend the next two weeks with the young man he’s been in love with since he was sixteen.

Tony feels so torn about Marc coming home from college. He keeps telling himself that it’s wrong to feel this way about him. After all, in two weeks’ time they’ll be related. So when the two young men are thrown together to prepare for the wedding, tensions rise and discoveries are made.

It’s going to be a very long two weeks, and a wedding that no one will ever forget.
Marc silently pushed back his duvet and stood on his bed to stretch up to the window. He concentrated on the horizon as he’d done so many times in the past, trying to catch a glimpse of the meteor shower that he knew might be visible this time of year. He’d only seen a shooting star once, when he was about fourteen, and it had been an amazing sight. Dad had taken him outside after midnight and made him wait patiently until at last he’d spotted the streak of light across the night sky, so fast he’d almost missed it. Every year after that he’d watched for them, but the weather was usually against him. 
Marc pressed his forehead against the bottom of the window pane and focused on the sky. Light pollution made it difficult, but he did his best to block out the orange street lights with his hands. He gazed at the stars, awed by the vastness of the display before him. It was moments like this that made it easy to believe in God, albeit a God who didn’t condemn two people of the same sex for being in love. Marc didn’t think that the God he believed in would turn his back on people who loved each other. 
God is love, isn’t that what we’re taught? 
He raised his eyes heavenward. . 
God, please, take away this ache in my heart. Make it easier to be around Tony, just while I’m here. He paused, unsure of whether or not to give voice to his innermost desires. Then he reasoned that God probably knew what he was thinking anyway, so what harm could it do? 
God, if it’s possible, let Tony love me, the way I love him.He wanted a sign, some clue that God had heard him. Except he knew God didn’t work like that. 
And then he caught his breath as a shooting star flashed across the sky, followed by another. 
Marc stared, his throat tight. My God, the timing. Then he shook himself. 
I can’t afford to think like that. I need to stop torturing myself. 
He got back into bed and curled up on his side, letting the gentle sound of Tony’s breathing lull him into a warm, comforting sleep.
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C.Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way.

K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings – writing about men in love was even hotter...

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career.

The laptop still has no idea of what hit it... it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

K.C. loves to hear from readers and can be reached on FacebookTwitter, or through comments at the K.C.Wells Website.
