The Sheriff #30 (8.3)
Dustin stared after Roy, long after the sheriff was out of sight, before he finally closed his mouth, which still hung open in amazement. If he didn’t know better, he’d say Roy was attracted to him. But that was a crazy thought.
If he was, it sure as hell wasn’t one-sided, though, Dustin realized, considering the boner he’d just managed to pop. And that sure had nothing to do with Jordan. He was over that man but good. Roy, on the other hand, was a whole ‘nother story.
He forced himself to focus. He didn’t have time to be mooning over anybody. He had to be wrong about Roy anyway, Roy was a straight arrow who just happened to have gay best friends. Didn’t make him gay.
Maybe he’s bicurious?
Dustin told his inner voice to shut up.
Dustin didn’t dare keep Jordan waiting, so once he was dressed he stood outside the apartment building, leaning against the wall, watching for him. He felt safer knowing Roy was keeping an eye on him. He deliberately didn’t try to spot Roy’s car, see where he was parked. If he didn’t know, he couldn’t very well tell Jordan.
Jordan showed up a few minutes after ten o’clock. As he climbed into Jordan’s car, he was grateful to see no sign of Rusty and Lenny.
“Hey there sexy,” Jordan greeted him, confusing the hell out of Dustin. Had he decided to forgive and forget? Did he think Dustin had forgotten his threats? His promise to hurt Denver, and his statement that he would take what he wanted from Dustin whenever he wanted it? What the hell was going through the other man’s mind?
He was even more confused when Jordan grabbed him and pulled him toward him, then laid a long, hard kiss on him. Dustin tried to squirm out of his grasp, but Jordan only gripped Dustin’s arms tighter. He laughed as he finally released him and Dustin scooted closer to the door.
“That’s more like it,” Jordan said. “I like my bitches subservient.”
Dustin’s cheeks heated, and he clenched his fists to keep from striking out at the asshole, keeping his jaw shut tight.
This won’t last forever, he reminded himself. He’ll get what’s coming to him.
“That’s right,” Jordan taunted him. “You know better than to say anything, don’t you? Maybe I’ll let you put that pretty mouth to good use later.” He winked at Dustin before turning back to driving. Dustin wanted to puke.
“You should lighten up,” Jordan said. ‘You’re so uptight. You look like you’re going to a funeral.”
“What’s there to be happy about?” Dustin countered. “Helping you set up my workplace to be robbed isn’t exactly my idea of a good time.”
“Wait till you see how much money we get, you’ll change your mind.”
Dustin glared at Jordan. “I don’t want anything to do with any of that, none of it. When this is done, I don’t want to have anything to do with you or your scumbag friends ever again.”
Jordan’s eyes narrowed, and Dustin thought he heard a quick intake of breath. Good, maybe he’d rattled the asshole.
“You don’t have that choice,” Jordan said. “What part of you’re my bitch now didn’t you understand?”
“I’m not anybody’s bitch,” Dustin said. “Least of all yours. You know something? You may be pretty on the outside, but you’re rotten as hell inside.”
His words only produced a laugh from Jordan. “Somebody’s waxing philosophical today. Did you think that up all by yourself? Or did you hear that from your friends?”
“What friends?” Dustin bluffed, but he had a pretty good idea what Jordan meant.
“The ones I saw you talking to at Partners. Those losers.”
