On the bed lies a bony figure, the figure of a man who led a rough life, battle scars all across his silky white skin. As cold air tickles his skin, dreamland fades and the man begins to wake up. “Ugh, I hate my job.” he exclaims as he looks at the clock. As it is almost time for work he gets dressed, and prepares breakfast. “At least breakfast is something to look forward to everyday,” the bloke claims “I make some fine eggs!” with that exclamation he puts his shoes on and exits his apartment. He checks his watch “7:45AM, still got enough time to reach my workplace.” As he leaves the building he bumps into his best friend, a tall, fit man with long wild black hair and eyes as hot as the sun.
"Weird meeting you here at this hour, Quad," the man said whilst being surprised "early clients?"
"Hello Rev," spoke Quad Quirky, "you know how demanding they can be."
"At least you’ve got some good times at your job" Rev spoke harshly, "my job sucks the life out of me!" he exclaimed.
Quad afraid he might have stepped on a nerve apologized and said goodbye. Rev ashamed of his sudden outburst jogs lightly to his workplace to take his mind away from this childish action.
As he enters the front door of his workplace he is greeted by a familiar face, “Good morning,” said the man while examining Rev, “What’s up with the hurry?” the man curiously asked “Oh, I thought I needed some exercise Mesth.” said Rev while breathing heavily. “Maybe you should do that after work, can’t imagine working with such sweaty clothes for such a long time.” pondered the man. “I’ll definitely consider that, Mesth.” said Rev while grabbing his ID card from the reception.
After a few hours of boring work Rev checks the clock, “3PM today sure is slow, I’ll check my tweets” Rev pulled out his smartphone and powered it on, to his surprise Quad sent him a private message: “I’ll be waiting for you at the usual spot when you’re done with work”
A long day at work and it’s time to leave, Rev says his goodbyes and walks briskly down a familiar street, Memory Lane. At the end of the road there lies a small bar, nothing fancy but it has good company. Rev opens the door and greets the bartender before sitting down. “Quad is late…” he thinks to himself. Feeling annoyed that Quad Quirky is wasting his free time, Rev orders a White Russian. While the bartender is preparing the drink Rev notices something with the corner of his eye. Beautiful blond hair, eyes the same color as the sky and a trained body. Rev doesn’t even hear the bartender when his drink is ready. So awestruck by this beautiful man he goes to him and strikes up a conversation.
"Tell me, are you as interesting as you look?" Rev said confidently, with a sheepish grin.
"I sure am!" shouted the man.
"Well lots of people say they’re interesting, but few people really are." spoke Rev while baiting in the man.
"You can bet your ass I’m interesting!" boasted the man, "I mess with computers, make videos and all sorts of wild stuff!" claimed the gentleman. "Name’s Torg" Torg had a wolfish smile whilst he introduced himself.
"Rev, Rev’s the name." spoke Rev as he extended his hand for a handshake.
Torg grabs Rev’s hand and pulls Rev towards him, with his other hand he gently caresses his face as he kisses him deeply.
Speechless, Rev grabs Torg’s ass pulling him closer to himself. This was the best kiss he had the joy to experience in ages. Moment seemed to drag for an eternity until Torg suddenly stops and looks Rev deeply in the eyes “I’ll make you mine.” he whispered.
Shocked at the sudden claim Rev stutters for something to say when Torg puts his finger on his moist lips telling him to give him his number. A little panicked Rev hands Torg his phone while he makes an excuse to go to the bathroom. Washing his face he heard the door open, he ignored it and continued washing his face pondering on the events which befell him only moments earlier, when, suddenly, somebody is grabbing him from behind, thinking this might be the handsome man he met earlier he speaks up “Torg, I don’t want to do this here!” with a bit of struggling he managed to break free. But to his surprise, it wasn’t Torg who had grabbed him, none other than the late party was standing there, with a sour look on his face to boot!
“Who was that man?” Quad demanded an answer. But Rev would have none of this, “And why do you care who that was? My own business is my own fucking business!”
Enraged, Quad walks away. Rev goes outside and sees Torg with a saddened look. “I’m sorry man, I didn’t know you had a boyfriend.” said Torg disdained. Rev quickly cut him off “That wasn’t my boyfriend, that’s my best friend. I don’t know what’s gotten in him.” Torg a bit surprised whipped up his wolfish grin once again. While handing Rev’s phone back he touched his arm and whispered in his ear “Later on today… Can I come over?” Rev blushed deeply while he handed Torg his address. Tonight is going to be intense.
After purchasing some basic supplies, Rev heads home. After a few moments of his arrival he hears a knock on the door. Assuming it’s Torg he quickly went to greet him. It wasn’t Torg, it was Quad, and he looked quite serious.
“What do you want Quad, I’m busy.” said Rev annoyed. “Can it wait, I’ve got an important meeting soon. I’ll call you—-” Quad pushes Rev to the ground and begins ripping his clothes off like a beast. “Stop, what the fuck are you doing, Quad!?”
“I won’t let another man have you Rev! I’ve loved you for such a long time, and you’ve never noticed!” Quad said whilst pregnant with emotion. He finally managed to remove Rev’s belt and he was getting ready himself when the door bursts open. “What the fuck is going on here!?” Torg roared. As soon as he saw Torg, Quad got ready to fight, but it was too late, his lights were out. Torg punched him so hard, Rev saw teeth flying.
“Are you okay?” Torg said gently to the quivering Rev. “I’m okay, I never knew Quad was such a… lunatic.” Rev said weakly. “Let’s get out of here and let the police handle this.” Torg suggested but Rev did not have the energy to reply so he simply nodded.
The sun is setting and the two men are walking towards the sunset, wherever love may take them, while Quad is slowly weeping at his loss, wondering where he could have gone wrong.
