Tuesday Tease # 5




Tuesday Tease #5
No Such Thing As Bad Publicity

"How did you expect me to react?" Axel's voice rose as he continued. " Be thrilled the big rock star deigned to fuck me?"
"If fucking were all it was about, I wouldn't have bothered calling." The air sizzled with Griff's fury. "I've been lonely on tour. I wanted you three months ago. I want you now."
"Not interested."
"Why are you doing this to us?" Griff sighed wearily, leaning against the rough brick of the apartment building.
"There is no us."
"You're just pissy because I didn't call sooner."
"I am not pissy. I'm hurt." The last was whispered so softly Griff almost missed it.
The simple phrase rang with the truth, even through the phone. "You saw the Spanish photo shoot." Nothing else could explain Axel's attitude.
"Along with the 'Griff and Jake Kiss and Make Up" headline."
"Axel, you know that's just publicity. Jake and I are over. I want you, not him. Let me come over?"
"You're standing outside, aren't you?"
Griff slung his guitar over his shoulder and smiled at the door. "I got your message." He glanced at the plant that used to hide the spare key. "Where's the new hiding place?"

  15. Ok, so Griff is just plain hot, no if or butts about it. He may be playing Axel the same way he plays his guitar, but who cares. Worry about those pissy details the morning after. Lee, excellent TTT
