“Elliot, Song Of The Soulmate” is a contemporary gay retelling of Jane Austen’s “Persuasion”.
After their third date, Elliot took him back to his place.
His mum was on a business trip to Melbourne and no one would . . . disturb them.
Wentworth found his old guitar, sat on his bed and tuned it.
Elliot leaned against the dresser opposite him and admired. “So this is what it feels like to be jealous of hollow wood and six strings.”
Laughter, and then music. Between them there was always laughter and then music.
The air vibrated, manipulated by Wentworth’s careful plucking, his strumming. He hummed a few beats and snagged Elliot’s gaze. Eyes twinkled.
And there he was
Arms crossed, amused
Friend and future
My favourite bumblebee
It was ridiculously catchy; Wentworth improvised a few more lines before Elliot leaped toward him, guitar be damned. Wentworth flung it onto the bed next to him just in time to catch Elliot, but not to brace his fall. They swooned to the mattress.
“My favourite bumble—”
Elliot kissed him. “Why are you waiting to submit your songs?”
“You like ‘My Favourite Bumblebee’? Well, then.”
“Seriously, Went. You could be famous already.”
“It’s simple,” Wentworth said, lifting onto his elbows, grinning cheekily. “I have a hard enough time keeping the girls and boys off me as it is.”
Elliot rolled his eyes and shoved him back to the mattress. But he wasn’t far off the truth. Wentworth magnetised people, students and teachers alike. All of them wanted in his orbit.
And Elliot had him between his thighs.
“A history test, and an English oral exam, and all I want to study is you.”
“Never thought I’d be so glad you’re a study-o-holic.” He grabbed his shirt and Elliot bounced as Wentworth stripped it off. “Should I grade you?”
Elliot swatted him and pressed his smirk against Wentworth’s hot skin. He wasn’t overly freckled, but there was a cluster here, between the fine hairs starting to crowd his chest. Slowly, Elliot trailed kisses down his stomach, over his bellybutton, to the waist of his jeans.
Elliot was painfully hard and Wentworth’s bulge suggested a similar state. He glanced up, revelling in the arousal in Wentworth’s gaze, his slackened bottom lip. He laid trembling fingers on the top button.
“I believe,” he murmured gravely, “you owe me a sore throat?”
