One Step Too Close

By: K.A Merikan

Wolver grunted something and watched his cigarette as he let the ash fall to the ground. “Just look out for him, okay? He always gets into trouble when he’s on his own.”

Ryder’s mouth curved into a smile as he thought of all the times they laughed, fucked, watched movies on the road. He and Jed were a perfectly normal couple, only happier than most. “He’s okay now. You don’t have to worry.”

“And don’t let him get a sports bike again. He’s a menace to society on that thing.” Wolver’s frown deepened, but Ryder was still happy to hear the words. They spoke of care, despite Wolver’s attitude toward Jed-the-gay-man. He’d come around one day.

“He can’t have two now.” Ryder slowly moved around and peeked inside through the window. Jed looked at Tony wide-eyed, only to make an exaggerated grimace of sadness. Even Jess laughed in her chair and spoke, but Ryder couldn’t hear what she said. Jed said something as well, but then his eyes settled on Ryder, and his handsome face spread into a brilliant smile.

Ryder nodded, breathing in the smoke, but he knew it wasn’t the cigarette that made his heart feel all warm.

“Don’t worry, Dad. I’ll always look out for him.”
