Never Fade Away

Until death does us part, but it’s knocking on our door…
I’d had enough. That’s how I found myself in a dingy alleyway with my revolver in my hand. I was sick and dying anyway, and there was nothing I could do about it. Nothing except maybe taking back some shred of control by going out on my own terms.
One deep breath. Two… Three… Four…
Surrounded by the darkness of my own mind, this was the only solution I could see, but before I could do something I’d regret, rock star Anno Goodkind crashed into my life and flipped it upside down.
It was supposed to be one casual hookup. No complications and definitely no feelings. No, the most logical thing to do would be to stuff my emotions down so nobody got hurt. Especially not him. But nobody told me that love didn’t give a damn about logic.
CONTENT WARNING: This story has a HEA but deals with heavy themes of illness, suicide, anxiety, and depression. Reader discretion is advised.
I’d thought Lyra was kidding, that there was no way such a travesty as what I laid my eyes upon now existed. The delicious sanctity of pizza was ruined. Anno had taken it, beaten it to death, resurrected it, and then incinerated it to ash. Even the sight of the pineapple and ham atop his two pizza slices was enough to amplify the pangs of pain in my stomach.
“What are you?” I shook my head as Anno sat across from me at a table at Wally’s. “You’re not human; I can assure you of that.”
Anno narrowed his eyes. Slowly he took a bite of pizza, never taking his gaze off me. “Mm.” He exaggerated a moan.
Ugh, I couldn’t even watch.
He swallowed dramatically. “At least I’m not a basic pizza bitch.” He gestured at my slice of pepperoni and cheese.
“Nothing you say has any credibility after you just shoved that in your mouth.”
“Pineapple’s good for you. Makes your ejaculate sweet.” He picked a piece of pineapple off his pizza and flicked it at me.
Feeling bold, I found where it had landed on my plate and slipped it leisurely into my mouth. Immediate regret filled me and I cringed. So stringy…
Anno called out my failed attempt at seduction without mercy. “Real sexy.”
“I try.” I washed the taste out with the bottle of water I’d ordered with my food. “You know you can probably take those off.” I motioned to the aviator sunglasses resting on Anno’s face. “Place is dead.”
Wally’s was a small restaurant with only a handful of tables. Other than us, only a group of teenagers were seated. People had been coming in fairly frequently for takeout orders, which were the majority of the pizzeria’s customers, but none had taken any notice of us.
Anno removed his glasses and hooked them over the neckline of his shirt. “You just want to see my pretty eyes.”
That hadn’t been my intention, but it was certainly a bonus. I shrugged. “Sue me.”

About the Author:
I’m a huge gamer, a lover of books and art, and have a fascination for lizards and other small critters that borders on an obsession. Which is probably why I already own 3 and have to actively stop myself from getting more.
I began writing because I always loved the idea that words can create entire universes and characters from nothing but a blank page and an idea. Like one day you have an empty Word document and then in as little as a few minutes—boom! You just created a snarky art school graduate with purple hair whose blood may actually be 90% coffee.
I write Male/Male adult romance. My books usually focus on realistic life topics—stuff everyday people go through and struggle with. I like when we as readers can feel connected to the characters we’re reading about. When we can understand their feelings and then suddenly they become truly human.
