Companion AVI to Chapter Four of Forbidden Desires

Chapter Four deals with Fuji’s thoughts on his doubles match with Kawamura. I made this video to show how I viewed that match from his perspective when I wrote Forbidden Desires.

The song I chose was the closest I could find, but it doesn’t do Fuji as much justice as I wish it did. It seemed to fit the match, though, so I decided to keep it.

This is one of the best made Thrill Pair AMVs I’ve ever found.

The Chains of Choice Chapter Five

Chapter Five of The Chains of Choice is up.

Here’s an Excerpt:

“Saa,” Fuji said, lifting empty hands to the bouncer. “I’m afraid I’m not 20 yet. But I’m not here for the services.” Some of the men in line behind him snorted. He swore he heard one of them yell, “Go home, kid!” but he tuned it out.

 The bouncer rolled his eyes and jerked his thumb towards the empty side of the street. “Get lost, kid,” he said.

 “I’m afraid you misunderstand me,” Fuji said, letting authority fall into his voice for the first time. The bouncer was a grunt. Being stopped here would be worse than pathetic. “I’m here to speak with Hayashi. We have an appointment.”

 The bouncer snorted. “Sure. That’s what they all say. Get lost.”

 “No,” Fuji said. “I’m not moving from this spot until you let Hayashi know that Fuji Syuusuke is here to see her.”

 “Sorry, kid. None of our women take on appointments with minors.” The bouncer narrowed his eyes. “Now get lost.”

 Fuji folded his arms over his chest and planted his feet, snapping his eyes open. “You have one minute to tell Hayashi that the Bleeder is here to see her. It’s undignified, but I’ll resort to violence if I have to.”

The Chains of Choice Chapter Three

The 3rd Chapter of The Chains of Choice is up!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Did you like that Syu was forced into a situation where he had no choice but to beat you? That his power was stripped away from him?”

“What?” Ryoma asked, dumbfounded. “He’s hurt me in front of people before.” Why the hell was Saeki making a big deal out of this?

“Yeah,” Saeki said, “but he choose that. He didn’t have a choice here.”

“Sure he did,” Ryoma said. “He could hurt me or…” he trailed off, suddenly feeling guilty.

“Or what?” Saeki prompted. He wasn’t going to let Ryoma run away from the truth, no matter how ugly .
Ryoma shook his head, silent, as tears started to form in his eyes.

Saeki planted himself in front of Ryoma, leaning close to his lover. “Or what?” he asked, tone hard.

Ryoma’s shoulders shook. But he replied, because he didn’t want to risk the ire he saw building in Saeki’s eyes. “Or he could have let me die,” he said, the words coming out a whisper.

The Chains of Choice Chapter 2

The second chapter of The Chains of Choice is up.

I’m hoping to write another chapter tomorrow. We’ll see what happens.

An excerpt from the 2nd chapter: 

“The text message,” Fuji said. “It was from Sora.” He didn’t miss the way Ryoma opened his mouth to open a question and then snapped it shut. Smart. “She’s calling in my debt.”

Ryoma stopped, folded his arms, and stared at Fuji, daring him to continue down the alley without further explanation.

Fuji didn’t hesitate; where they were going, any subordination from his lover could get them both killed. He took hold of Ryoma’s shoulders with a grip so painful it made the freshman’s eyes widen, off-footing him before he’d even had a real chance to protest, and slammed the younger man against the brick wall behind him.

He leaned in close, dropping his voice to a whisper. “If you want to continue living, you need to act like I’m the only reason you’re alive at all. This is the absolute worst part of town for you to defy me. Understand?”
